Milwaukee Journal Sentinel ad highlights Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin’s $18 million taxpayer price tag, rising abortions

A full page ad, placed by Pro-Life Wisconsin, in today’s Milwaukee Journal Sentinel highlights the taxpayer money Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin (PPWI) receives in contrast with the “services” provided and the increasing number of abortions performed. Click here to view the ad. 

“PPWI collected more than $18 million in 2010 in federal and state taxpayer dollars, yet chemical and surgical abortions in the state continue to rise,” said Virginia Zignego, communications director. “PPWI is pulling the wool over taxpayers’ eyes in the guise of providing healthcare. PPWI does not even provide mammograms and has been shown willing to cover up purported statutory rape.”

In 2010, Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin received $18 million in federal and state taxpayer funding. 

According to its 2009 tax forms, PPWI has a net worth of $9.8 million and paid its CEO, Teri Huyck, a salary of $248,819.

In addition, according to its 2009 annual report, PPWI performed 5,439 abortions and 6,164 minor children received “services” at a PPWI facility without their parents’ knowledge or consent. 

“A non-profit organization with a net worth of $9.8 million, which profits from killing unborn children, preys on minor children and exploits women in distress, should not be considered a healthcare provider,” concluded Zignego. “The time is now to defund Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin.”
