Who Funds Planned Parenthood
& Other Pro-Abortion Groups?

Your insurance company? your bank?
Your favorite department store?
Your breakfast cereal maker?
Your news provider?
your employer?

Why should we care what they do with their money?
"Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."
Luke 12:34

In other words, media dedicated enough to a cause to support it
financially probably also are biased toward that issue in their reporting.
