Planned Parenthood, a taxpayer funded entity, recently bragged about pledging $45 million to help elect pro-abortion candidates in the 2020 election.
In a recent tweet made by Planned Parenthood, the largest provider of abortions in the United States, they announced their plans to make the “largest ever” push for pro-abortion candidates in the 2020 election period.
Planned Parenthood made clear that this is primarily motivated by their desires to remove President Donald J. Trump from the Oval Office.
Secondarily organization wants to ensure a Democrat-controlled Senate and continue the Democrat hold over the House of Representatives.
The focus will be put on nine key swing states, or roughly 5 million people utilizing digital, television, radio ads as well as direct mail in Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Minnesota, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.
Fox News reported a quote fro the executive director of Plan Parenthood Votes expressing the intent of the donation.
“Next November, our very rights and freedoms will be on the ballot. Already, we’ve seen Trump and his buddies in Congress and state legislatures do everything they can to strip us of our rights and access to health care. Who we elect will determine our access to birth control, cancer screenings, sex education, abortion access and more.”
March for Life President Jeanne Mancini responded to the announcement made by Planned Parenthood Action.
“At its essence, Planned Parenthood is a political advocacy group with a focus on expanding abortion. It is no surprise that the abortion corporation is spending $45 million in battle ground states because this Administration has implemented a pro-life agenda in many areas … It is unfair to force Americans to subsidize through their tax dollars this partisan political organization bent on electing pro-abortion politicians.”
Planned Parenthood has faced major funding hurdles during the Trump administration, having been stripped of funding earlier this year, and removing itself from Title X funding in August.
