BACKFIRE: Through Increased Donations, Liberals Are Proving Groups Like Planned Parenthood DON’T NEED TAX DOLLARS
Since the election, liberals have finally opened their own wallets to support their favorite pet causes as a form of protest. They’ve given unprecedented amounts to organizations like Planned Parenthood.
What they don’t seem to realize is that they’ve proven these groups don’t need to be funded with tax dollars.
From The Guardian:
Progressive causes see ‘unprecedented’ upswing in donations after US election
One man wrote a check for $10,000 to an organization that helps women get elected to office, saying he was “embarrassed” that Donald Trump won the presidential election.
Someone else walked into the office of an organization advocating for immigrant rights and handed over a bag of cash he had just collected from members of his local community civics group.
From smaller local organizations to household names such as Planned Parenthood and the ACLU, nonprofit organizations across the US reported fundraising tallies many magnitudes higher than in previous years as they approached their end-of-year donation drives.
“This is always our big time of year, but this year it’s huge,” said Loretta Prescott, development director for the Immigration Legal Advocacy Project in Maine. “Instead of giving gifts, people are making donations to causes they believe in.”…
Planned Parenthood has received more than 300,000 donations in the six weeks since the election, 40 times its normal rate. Around half the donors were millennials and 70% had never given to the family planning organization before, a spokesman told the Guardian.
It’s great to see the left supporting the causes they care about with their own money, isn’t it?
Why should John Q. Taxpayer be forced to support such causes when liberals can do it on their own?
