Well, this is awkward…
Bill O’Reilly said: Planned Parenthood should “be funded like Catholic charities, by individuals who believe in Planned Parenthood’s mission.”
Take a look at the organization Catholic Charities’ financial documents, and you’ll find that in 2010 62% of their total income was government revenue — $2.9 billion that year.
Yes, we should do that will all government expenditure! So the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan should only be funded by those who believe in the mission. And the billions of dollars a year that gets squirreled away to states with terrible human rights records (e.g. about three billion dollars a year goes to Israel). And the corporate subsidies. And the tax breaks for rich people. Etc.
