The Combined Federal Campaign starts Sept. 1 and runs through to Dec. 15 this year.
Why is Planned Parenthood endorsed by CFC and the government’s Office of Personnel Management?
I suppose you too can donate to “Baby Murder Incorporated” through the CFC. That means servicemen and women, government employees, wage grade employees, and so on, can elect to send donations to Planned Parenthood through the government’s Combined Federal Campaign.
Given the horror of the videos that expose PP as a for-profit enterprise that deals in baby body parts, perhaps CFC donations would be better served by charities that don’t specialize in killing unborn children then putting kid’s body parts on the market for sale.
“The mission of the CFC is to promote and support philanthropy through a program that is employee focused, cost-efficient, and effective in providing all federal employees the opportunity to improve the quality of life for all,” states the Office of Personnel Management.
“CFC is the world’s largest and most successful annual workplace charity campaign, with almost 200 CFC campaigns throughout the country and overseas raising millions of dollars each year. Pledges made by Federal civilian, postal and military donors during the campaign season (September 1st to December 15th) support eligible non-profit organizations that provide health and human service benefits throughout the world. The Director of OPM has designated responsibility for day-to-day management of the program and to its CFC office.”
Planned Parenthood is listed as a 501(c)(3) and 501(c)(4) Not-for-Profit organization.
So, how much money does this non profit business get from taxpayers?
Past 10 years: $4.3 Billion
2014: $540.6 Million
On the CFC National / International Numerical List, Planned Parenthood is listed under two numbers, but those number represent the same organization. Those numbers are:
11682 Planned Parenthood Federation of America – International
10609 Planned Parenthood Foundation
Planned Parenthood is estimated to have slaughtered more than 4 million pre-born babies.
Internationally, do CFC donations go to support PP’s international efforts too?
International: IPPF works to ensure that women are not put at unnecessary risk of injury, illness and death as a result of pregnancy and childbirth, and it supports a woman’s right to choose to terminate her pregnancy legally and safely.
In the developing world 220 million women want contraception but can’t get it. As a result many women become vulnerable to unplanned pregnancy and have the risk of seeing their child die from poverty. All individuals should be able to decide the size of their family and who they live with. This is essential to end poverty and create a more sustainable world. We’re lobbying the UN to end gender inequality so that all people have the ability to say “I decide about my body.” Take the pledge today!
Every year, 47,000 women die due to unsafe abortion. It is 1 of the 3 leading causes of maternal mortality. IPPF supports a woman’s right to choose and to access safe abortion services.
IPPF understands that the stigma around abortion keeps the issue hidden and poses a significant barrier to women and girls being able to exercise their rights to safe abortion and post-abortion care.
IPPF therefore undertakes to:
“Raise the profile of the abortion debate, bringing the issue out of the shadows with an aim to normalize discussion around this sensitive issue, both within and outside of the Federation. This should be done within a context of comprehensive sexual and reproductive rights, acknowledging that when women lack the ability to make decisions for themselves and their families, their access to information and uninterrupted contraceptive services, safe abortion services and post-abortion care is compromised. Work actively to combat the stigma surrounding abortion arising from all sources: the community, healthcare providers, staff and volunteers within the Federation, public officials, religious leaders, media and law makers.”
Perhaps it’s time someone at OPM, and perhaps from the media, looked into the validity of Planned Parenthood as a 501(c)(3) and 501(c)(4) and question whether or not it should be a part of the Combined Federal Campaign.
