Petition - We Oppose Louisville Metro Taxpayer Funding of Planned Parenthood - GoPetition

“We Oppose Louisville Metro Government from funneling tax dollars to Planned Parenthood”

On July 14, 2015, the Center for Medical Progress began releasing to the public video footage and documents proving that Planned Parenthood sells body parts and tissue from abortions. Planned Parenthood is the nation's largest abortion provider with clinics in every state. KRLA has called for an investigation of our regional PP organization. Now is the time to move forward with important action to stop the taxpayer funding of PP! (Note regarding editing change on 8-18-15: We have not yet discovered when the change from Council to city government took place.)

THINK LOCAL!

DID YOU KNOW that the Louisville Metro Council city government annually funds PP? Since 2008 Louisville has given PP nearly $1.2 million. These are Title X monies, a portion of which are our tax dollars. Is this how taxpayers want their money spent?
