To the Editor,

Taxpayer Protection Act - an end to state subsidies of big abortion. The Taxpayer Protection Act was introduced in the Minnesota House of Representatives. This bill should become law, because it protects taxpayers from having to subsidize the abortion industry.

The Taxpayer Protection Act separates family planning programs from the abortion industry and denies government funds to organizations that perform and advocate for abortion. It would end most state subsidies for abortion advocates and also ensure that taxpayers no longer pay for abortions as a method of birth control.

Minnesota taxpayers currently finance agencies that promote abortion as a method of birth control. Statistics from the Minnesota Department of Health reveal that more than two out of every five women who underwent an abortion in the year 2000 had previously had an abortion. Among the 14, 450 total abortions that year, more than 40 percent of the women cited do not want children at this time or do not intend to have more children as their reason.

Currently, state funds are distributed to numerous organizations that perform abortions as a method of family planning. For example, the Minnesota affiliate of Planned Parenthood received nearly $4 million in state government grants in 2000. Minnesota is one of only nine states with court decisions requiring taxpayers to pay for abortions.

Minnesota taxpayers do not deserve to have their tax money go towards this multi-million dollar industry that they do not support. In fact, a poll administered by the Star Tribune in April of 2001 found that 59 percent of respondents said they personally believe that abortion is morally wrong.
