KUDO's to Kathy!
Former supermodel, now pro-life advocate, Kathy Ireland added her voice this week to those calling on Congress to eliminate federal funding of Planned Parenthood, America’s largest abortion provider.
“I think Planned Parenthood needs to reassess and look at what their values are, what their mission is, what their goals are, and do they deserve government funding? For example, there are non-profits that I’m involved with, and we don’t get government funding,” Ireland told FoxNews.
“We go out there, and if you really believe in this strongly enough to fight it for it, go get the funding,” she continued. “To force people who don’t agree with some of the practices, I don’t believe in that. I don’t think taxpayers need to fund something as controversial as [Planned Parenthood].”
Ireland, who became famous in the 1980s and 1990s through numerous appearances on the cover of Sports Illustrated’s annual swimsuit edition, has become an ardent promoter of the right to life in the last decade or so.
