NASHVILLE, TN (AP) – Pro life centers across the country are receiving tens of millions of tax dollars. An Associated Press tally shows that the spending is a nearly five-fold increase from a decade ago. It’s the result of an effort by mostly Republican-led states that have restricted access to abortion. State budget figures reviewed by the AP show that nearly $89 million has been allocated across about a dozen states this fiscal year to fund nonprofit pregnancy care centers. A decade ago, the annual funding for the programs hovered around $17 million in about eight states.
