More Texas congressmen are expressing outrage over Planned Parenthood’s alleged abortion quotas, calling on Planned Parenthood to address the allegations and reiterating support for nationwide defunding.
Earlier this week, a former Planned Parenthood manager came to the Daily Caller with a budget statement she said proves that her clinic had annual abortion quotas it needed to meet in order to make its budget. The budget, from fiscal year 2010, said that the now-closed clinic in Bryan, Texas needed to perform at least 1,135 abortions in order to generate the necessary $355,581 in revenue.
“It is utterly appalling that Planned Parenthood would have annual abortion quotas just to meet their financial goals,” said Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert. “With the vast amount of money Planned Parenthood receives from U.S. taxpayers, it is critical that we determine whether or not any staff members were told that their salaries were contingent on their pushing a certain number of young women to abort their babies. The idea of salaries being contingent on the number of babies destroyed is unmitigatingly evil.”
