Sheryl Sandberg is a regular, long-time donor to Planned Parenthood, and the nation's largest abortion provider celebrated her support.
Caleb Stephen of LifeSiteNews.com reports.
"On behalf of the more that two million patients who come to Planned Parenthood each year, we are so grateful to Sheryl Sandberg for her longstanding, and now increased, support for our healthcare," Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards said in a statement.
The purported not-for-profit abortion organization is searching for additional sources of revenue while facing the possibility under the new Trump administration that government funding in the U.S. will be cut off. International taxpayer funding for abortions was axed within the first week of the pro-life president taking office.
Last week, Sandberg condemned Trump's reinstatement of a policy that blocks NGO’s around the world from receiving U.S. taxpayer funds if they perform abortions or discuss them in “family planning.” She called for the reversal of the global gag rule through a bill introduced by U.S. Rep. Nita Lowey, D-NY.
"I started my career working at the World Bank on healthcare in India,” Sandberg wrote January 27 on Facebook. “I saw firsthand how clinics funded by foreign aid are often the only source of healthcare for women.
“When women are given even the most basic health care information and services, they live longer, healthier lives — and they give birth to children who live longer, healthier lives. ... The best way to prevent abortion is through more family planning services, not fewer. ... Women’s rights are human rights — and there is no more basic right than healthcare. Women around the world deserve our support.”
