Planned Parenthood Golden Gate's Spending Priorities

Yesterday's California Catholic Daily had an interesting story about Planned Parenthood Golden Gate, which went out of business last year. The locations were taken over by an organization called Golden Gate Community Health, which is closing this month. I was not aware of the information provided in the second paragraph reproduced below.

"PPGG lost $2.8 million during the tax year 2008-2009 and had not broken even since 2006. GGHC was reported to have run up a shortfall totaling $536,000 in 2010 and had attempted, apparently unsuccessfully, to raise $1.5 million in order to keep its clinics open.

At the same time it was struggling to survive financially, PPGG contributed over $750,000 to defeat three California ballot initiatives, in 2005, 2006, and 2008, that would have required parental notification before a minor could have an abortion."
