In a year, California taxpayers paid $28 million for abortions… and there’s more

taxpayers, california

In a previous piece, Live Action News revealed that, despite abortion proponents’ claims that taxpayers don’t fund abortion, taxpayers are footing the bill for more than half of all abortions committed in states where Medicaid pays for abortions. Now, here are more details from various states, detailing how much taxpayer funding is really being used to pay for abortions.

Alaska

According to 2017 data50.6 percent of women who aborted used Medicaid to fund their abortions. Out of 1,255 abortions reported, 635 were taxpayer funded. 2016 data is available from Live Action News here.

In just the Medi-Cal FFS plan, taxpayers financed 53,907 abortions to the tune of $27,591,381.00. This included 4,438 Dilation and Evacuation (D+E) abortions, which are usually committed later in the pregnancy.

Former abortionist Dr. Anthony Levatino describes below the gruesome D&E abortion procedure, which California taxpayers are funding:

Illinois

According to the Charlotte Lozier Institute, “In 2017, Illinois expanded Medicaid coverage to pay for elective abortions with state Medicaid funds. Before the expansion, Illinois’ Medicaid program covered abortion only when the pregnancy resulted from rape or incest or when the mother’s life was at risk.”

As a result, the Illinois News Network (INN) reported that “Illinois taxpayers paid for nearly four times more abortions in the first six months of 2018 than the year before….” Abortion reimbursement requests Illinois News Network obtained from the Illinois Department of Health and Family Services (HFS) showed that taxpayer funded abortions increased 274 percent as follows:

  • From January to June 2017: 84 taxpayer-funded abortions
  • From January to June 2018: 314 taxpayer-funded abortions

For the first six months of 2017, INN reported that “the HFS document showed the provider charge amount for the 84 procedures was $129,467, with a total payment of $14,995.29. For the same time period in 2018 for the 314 procedures the provider charge amount was $426,583 with a payment total of $24,389.”

Illinois taxpayers may even be footing the bill for residents from other states, implied in a report published by WQAD which showed that in 2016, “there were were 4,543 out-of-state individuals that got an abortion in Illinois, 1,573 more than in 2014.”

“[O]ur Medicaid eligibility requirements are so lenient that we expect folks are going to come in from out of state, they will establish temporary residence to get their free abortion and then go home,” State Rep. Peter Breen told WQAD.

Maryland

According to the most current data on state taxpayer dollars funding abortion (data may not include all abortions):

  • 2017: $5.7 million funded 8,798 abortions

Oregon

In November of 2018, Oregon voters will decide if their state will continue to fund abortions. Measure 106 would prohibitpublic funds from being spent on abortions, except when medically necessary or required by federal law.

Jeff Jimerson of Oregon Life United recently told KATU that in 2017, the state paid $1.9 million to fund approximately 3500 abortions, an average of ten abortions each day.

According to the Oregonian, abortions are covered under the Oregon Health Plan, “which paid $2.4 million for 3,769 abortions in 2016, according to Oregon Health Authority documents.”

South Carolina

A letter submitted by Lt. Gov. Kevin Bryant to The State claims that:

  • Planned Parenthood alone received almost $360,000 from SC taxpayers from 2011-2016
  • From 2011-2015, S.C. Medicaid paid for 29 abortions
  • Since 2011, the state employee health plan has paid for 11 abortions.

South Dakota

In 2016, 17 out of 472 abortions were paid for by a public health plan. According to the the state’s Office of Health Statistics report, the majority of abortions — 83.7 percent — cost between $600 and $699.

This list is by no means all state funding.

An analysis published earlier this year by Guttmacher found that “Medicaid was the second-most-common method of payment, reported by 24% of abortion patients. The overwhelming majority of these patients lived in the 15 states that allow state funds to be used to pay for abortion.”

Pendergraft operates a chain of late term abortion clinics in Florida even though his medical license has been suspended in the state.

Suspension Pendergrat

According to a report by Operation Rescue at the time of Pendergraft’s arrest on October 5, 2015, he had in his possession surgical implements that were covered in blood and human tissue from abortions he had illegally performed throughout South Carolina.

He was also in the possession of illegal narcotics.

His illegal abortion operation was described as a “mobile abortion clinic.”

Pendergraft, 58, was charged with four drug-related offenses, but remains under criminal investigation for practicing medicine without a license.

Operation Rescue also learned that his accomplice, described by Spartanburg Co. Sheriff Chuck Wright as Pendergraft’s “wife,” is Angela Jackson, 55, of Cary North Carolina.

Jackson was charged with intent to sell marijuana out of the back of Pendergraft’s vehicle.

Pro-lifers in Florida have been trying for years to stop Pendergraft from operating in the state. They say this news is an answer to prayer.

Spartanburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright announced at a press conference on Friday that his deputies arrested an man and his wife, who were operating a mobile abortion clinic out of their vehicle. The unlicensed abortionist was conducting abortions on women up and down the State of South Carolina. The arrests were made as the result of a multi-jurisdictional traffic sweep called Operation Rolling Thunder.

We got a guy and a girl early in the week that was a traveling abortionist. He traveled around the state of South Carolina without a medical license, with drugs and with medical tools, performing in-home abortions,” Wright said. “So basically we got an illegal baby killer.”

Pro-Life African American Republican: Tim Scott…, posted with vodpod

Begins speech reading from the Holy Scriptures: EPHESIANS 3:24, “God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all we could ask

“If you truly believe in the future of this country WE must go to work…it is our responsibility to get it done!”

Thanks His Family and Friends

Mentions his friend and campaign manager and how he made the Lord Jesus Christ His Savior, “He is my brother, when my back is turned and I needed someone to count on- he is there…He has been there thru the fire and worked for free when we didn’t have the money to pay him.”

Thanks his mother Francis W. Scott…” She has had some struggles along the way…I was not a good kid…I failed Spanish and English and when you fail Spanish and English – you are NOT bilingual – My momma had a concept of tough love, so she bought the switch and said ‘go get it for me boy’, and she wore me out when I needed it ! I will tell you without question, the super here, the American dream that I am currently living belongs to Francis Scott !”

“We must win back this country not for Democrats, not for Republicans but for the American People.”

“Our Founders had it right, they understood that a Constitution constructed properly would protect us from other flawed men.”

” All we hear is the issue ‘he is a Black Republican’ I gotta tell you I’m black, I’m proud, I got a bald head … all those things don’t matter you see in S. Carolina in Charleston, in Myrtle Beach …the individual…”

“The formula is a very simple formula- We must limit the control of Government in our lives !”

” We must stop that system in DC and we’re gonna start TODAY!”

“Lower taxes encourages entrepreneurs, to do what we do best, create jobs. If the government could create jobs, communism would have worked. ”

“If you don’t have it – DON’T SPEND IT ! – A 13 trillion dollar deficit – Enough is Enough is Enough !”

“I’m amazed by the fact that the Good Lord, allowed me to be born in America !”

Tim Scott has won the seat in South Carolina’s 1st Congressional District. Mr. Scott – a Tea Party movement fave – has 65% of the vote, while his Democratic challenger Ben Frasier has 29%.

Congressman-Elect Scott is the first black Republican elected from the Deep South since Rep. George Henry White of North Carolina in 1898. He is the first one elected from his home state, South Carolina, to Congress since Rep. George Murray in 1894.

From The Los Angeles Times: “South Carolina voters on Tuesday elected the first black Republican to Congress from the Deep South since Reconstruction. State Rep. Tim Scott easily defeated perennial Democratic candidate Ben Frasier and five third-party candidates to win the 1st District seat left vacant by the retirement of Republican U.S. Rep. Henry Brown. Scott will be the nation’s first black GOP congressman since Oklahoma’s J.C. Watts retired in 2003.”

It is the first time that two black Republicans (Tim Scott and Allen West) have served in the U.S. Congress at the same time since the mid-1990s. And two or more from the South, since the 1870s.
