.- Tuesday’s election results show that Planned Parenthood is "simply out of touch with American values" and should stop receiving federal funding, said Jim Sedlak, executive director of American Life League's STOPP International.

The failure of several of Planned Parenthood’s pre-election efforts show clearly that “Americans do not adhere to the value-free, humanistic religion that Planned Parenthood pushes on children, families and communities," he said.

"We call on President Bush and all other elected officials to end the flow taxpayer money to this organization, which currently gets more than $250 million a year," said Sedlak.

Sedlak pointed out that Planned Parenthood officially endorsed and worked for the election of pro-abortion candidate Senator John Kerry, but he was defeated by almost four million votes.

Planned Parenthood also fought against a parental notification amendment in Florida, which would prevent underage girls from obtaining abortions without their parents' knowledge, he said. The amendment passed by a huge margin of 65 percent to 35 percent.

Finally, Planned Parenthood opposed state amendments that define marriage as a union between one man and one woman. However, the amendments were overwhelmingly passed in 11 states, he indicated.

"This election is a complete repudiation of Planned Parenthood's positions and programs," said Sedlak. As a result, he said, federal funding should be cut.
