Minnesota taxpayers paid for 58,000 abortions in 15 years
After 15 years of taxpayer-funded abortions, Minnesotans have funded more than 58,000 abortions at a cost of over $18 million, according to a just-released report from the Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS). Nearly all of these abortions have been elective, reports LifeSiteNews.com.
Since its successful 1995 challenge to Minnesota’s law that prohibited funding of most abortions, the state’s abortion industry has steadily increased its procedure numbers and revenue by marketing taxpayer-funded abortions to low-income women. Taxpayers now pay for 32.7 percent of all abortions performed in the state — the highest percentage ever.
“Economically vulnerable women represent guaranteed revenue for the state’s abortion centers,” said Scott Fischbach, Executive Director of Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life (MCCL). “It is time to end abortionists’ money grab at the expense of poor women and their unborn children.”
