President George W. Bush has always presented himself as a conservative “pro-lifer,” but has collectively allowed $2.2 billion dollars worth of funding for Planned Parenthood. According to Jim Sedlak, an expert on Planned Parenthood for the American Life League, Bush and his representatives “gave no legitimate excuse for not cutting off the money.” Sedlak and other ardent pro-lifers were hopeful that Bush would cease all funding for Planned Parenthood when he was elected, but that never came to be. In fact, Sedlak says, “Planned Parenthood has gotten more and more [federal] money every year – a slightly greater increase than under President Clinton.”
