My guess is that it would be a lot more than you either would like or know about. The list of organizations, which spent 1 BILLION dollars of your tax money on abortions are not government clinics, but private groups, and sometimes, businesses:
The GAO report showed the following government funding:
– Advocates for Youth, $8.7 million.
– Guttmacher Institute, $12.7 million.
– International Planned Parenthood Federation, $3.9 million.
– Planned Parenthood Federation of America, $657.1 million.
– Population Council of the United States, $284.3 million.
– Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States, $300,000.
And this occurred during the Bush years, when the GOBP controlled the White House and Congress.
“Additionally, for federal fiscal years 2002 through 2005, complete obligation and disbursement data for awards made through USAID’s overseas-based missions were not available,” the GAO said in the report. “As a result, obligations and disbursements in this report may understate the actual amount of federal funds provided to the selected organizations and their affiliates.”
A group responded to the GAO report of course, without announcing any supporting evidence, states that funding has dramatically increased under the current President’s term.
I can think of nothing else to say, but what Henry David Thoreau said after his imprisonment for refusing to may a poll tax which supported slavery.
Must the citizen ever for a moment, or in the least degree, resign his conscience to the legislator? Why has every man a conscience then? I think that we should be men first, and subjects afterward. It is not desirable to cultivate a respect for the law, so much as for the right. The only obligation which I have a right to assume is to do at any time what I think right.
You may read more about proper civil disobedience here. Mind you, I am not one for nullifying every action of the Federal Government, but seeing as it is my money, and I do not want my money paying for elective abortions, I am hard-pressed to test my resolve as to the obedience to my proper government.
