What do you get for your fungible taxpayer dollars? An array of services and 333,964 abortions in fiscal 2011 alone.

What do you get for your fungible taxpayer dollars? An array of services and 333,964 abortions in fiscal 2011 alone (see below).  As an abortion procedure costs an average of $500, this means $167 million of revenue for Planned Parenthood.
