In America, we have the opportunity to elect our political leaders. Our founding fathers considered voting not only a right but also a duty. At the founding of this country, 100% of the citizens voted. Today, around 25% vote in general elections, and around 15% vote in primaries.

Many of these same, non-voting Americans even have the nerve to complain about how the government is run!

The latest government entity to ditch the embattled abortion giant was the St. Lucie County Children’s Services Council (CSC), an independent taxing authority in Florida, which has funded PP with grants totaling nearly $4 million since 2002. St. Lucie Taxpayers Against Planned Parenthood Funding, led the effort to defund Planned Parenthood by organizing pickets and speaking at monthly public forums that eventually led to cessation of funding for PP, which was about $500,000 last fiscal year.
