ABQ City Council votes 5-4 to force taxpayers to fund Planned Parenthood

On Monday, the Albuquerque City Council reaffirmed its previous vote to force city taxpayers to fork over $250,000 to fund the Planned Parenthood corporation, which kills babies in the womb.

Despite claiming the partnership with the abortion company was only for necessary medical procedures, it would still force Albuquerque taxpayers to fund abortions.

New Mexico Alliance for Life wrote on Facebook following the vote, “ABQ City Council Votes 5-4 to Keep Forced Taxpayer Abortion Funding. Pro-Abortion ABQ Republican Trudy Jones Votes with Radical Dems.”

In a previous email from the group, it wrote, “This unprecedented action of the Albuquerque City Council to directly fund a multi-million [dollar] abortion corporate empire is not only an abuse of taxpayer funds but goes against 73% of Americans who oppose taxpayer-funded abortions.”

73% of Americans, including pro-choice individuals, women, and millennials, oppose mandated taxpayer funding of abortions, according to a recent Marist/Knights of Columbus poll.

In a previous op-ed from New Mexico Sun, City Councilor Renee Grout wrote, “This is not a simple disagreement on a political issue. For many people, abortion is sanctioned murder. It is wasteful and wrong to give $250,000 of taxpayer money to a business that makes $1.3 billion every year advocating for and performing this procedure.”

Councilor Tammy Fiebelkorn, the sponsor of the $250,000 blank check to Planned Parenthood, was annoyed that the Council was revisiting the vote, saying, “Now is not the time to roll back something that we literally passed two months ago.”

  1. Every time it’s a vote for sanity, the commissioners say “We don’t want to get political.”

    But every time the radical left Communists are pushing harmful and anti-American ordinances, suddenly they get their way.

    One thing is for sure – the people aren’t making their voice heard in Albuquerque City Council. It’s time to stop sitting at home and fill the council chambers with people who don’t want babies to be murdered!!!

  2. Hey lighten up on our esteemed public servants. These five city councilors are only making sure New Mexico retains its ranking as Number one in killing babies. Funding Planned Parenthood is a catalyst in our state being able to brag we are the best at something.

  3. Wake up ABQ planned parenthood wants to murder your children

    Time everyone of these people get voted out. We need new conservative, God loving people in these offices. Time to rid New Mexico of liberal Commi’s.

  4. Enough is Enough!!! We need to stand up for our rights and vote all the commies out. God help our murdering state and get her out of office. The socialist dems continue to do what they want and could care less about human life in general. Follow the money and power. HYPOCRITS

  5. I wrote Councilor Tammy Fiebelkorn and she told me my religious views do not scare her she is an aeohist.

    Thank God for Dan Lewis and Renee Grout for standing for God. If we do not get rid of the machines we will never have a fair election in New Mexico
