Omnibus contains earmarks for Planned Parenthood and other abortion groups

Over at The Corner, a Hill aide tells Kathryn Lopez that Senate's pork-lden omnibus spending bill contains a number of significant goodies that spend taxpayer dollars funding abortion:

$327 million is allocated for the Title X Family Planning Program which provides funding to groups like Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the nation.  This is a $10 million increase over last year (FY10 level was $317 million) and a $44 million increase over the last four years (FY07 level was $283 million). (page 979)

And there's also this:

$710 million is appropriated for international family planning/reproductive health which provides funding to organizations that promote and perform abortion overseas.  This is a $62 million increase over last year (FY10 level was $648 million) and $270 million increase over the last four years (FY07 level was $440 million). (page 1379)
