Hillary Clinton: How the money trail proves she’s a favorite of the abortion industry

Hillary Clinton’s donation record boasts a number of infamous figures, including StemExpress president, Cate Dyer. Dyer became known to the American public through the CMP undercover investigation of fetal body parts sellers and buyers, which revealed Dyer discussing staph infections in abortion clinics from which she purchased fetal body parts. Dyer was also caught on tape saying that lab techs “have meltdowns” when they open a box to find an aborted baby’s head.

Late-term abortionist Warren Hern, who is currently being sued for a botched abortion that left a 4-centimeter piece of the baby’s skull in the mother’s uterus, has also donated to Clinton. (The complaint against Hern indicates he did not even bother to conduct an ultrasound following the late-term abortion to ensure all pieces of the baby had been removed.) Hern has given $5,000 to Hillary Clinton – $2,300 back in 2007 and the rest in 2015, with the latest donation just before last Thanksgiving.

The list below shows donations from Planned Parenthood affiliates’ top staff to Clinton. Donations from the current primary election cycle are specifically noted as being from 2015 or 2016. Since many of the donations from Planned Parenthood staff to Barack Obama were given in 2008, once he had secured the Democratic nomination, more are expected to come for Clinton later this year. You can check these donations yourself here. As of late April 2016, they total just over $23,600.

  • $2250 from Christine Charbonneau, CEO of PP Great NW, Seattle, WA (2015)
  • $5000 from Vicki Cowart, CEO of PP Rocky Mountains, Denver, CO ($2700 was given in 2015.)
  • $1500 Linda Williams, CEO of PP Mar Monte, San Jose, CA
  • $2700 from Dorothy Furgerson, M.D., Chief Medical Officer of PP Mar Monte, CA
  • $1250 from Sarah Stoesz, CEO of PP MN, SD, & ND, St. Paul, MN ($1000 of this was given  in 2015.)
  • $1250 from Jill June, former CEO of PP Heartland, Des Moines, IA (2015)
  • $1000 from Lillian Tamayo, CEO of PP South, East, and North Florida, West Palm Beach, FL (2016)
  • $2300 from Dianne Luby, CEO of PP League of MA, Boston, MA
  • $500 from JoAn Malin, CEO of PP New York City, New York City, NY
  • $1500 from Barbara Zdravecky, CEO of PP SW & Central FL, Sarasota, FL ($750 of this was given in 2015.)
  • $500 from Melaney Linton, CEO of PP Gulf Coast, Houston, TX
  • $1400 Paula Gianino, CEO of PP St. Louis Region & SW Missouri, St. Louis, MO
  • $460 from JoAnn Smith, CEO of PP Nassau County, Hempstead, NY
  • $1000 from Karen Nelson, CEO of PP Central & Western NY, Rochester, NY (2015)
  • $250 from Deb D’Arcangelo, former CEO of PP Assoc. Mercer, Trenton, NJ (2016) (She changed jobs to CEO of Council for Relationships prior to this donation, but appears to still be on a PP board.)
  • $750 from Charlene Wendel former CEO of PP Collier County, Naples, FL ($250 of this was given in 2015 after Wendel had retired from PP after 18 years.)

Planned Parenthood took an unprecedented step this year (that was condemned by many of the abortion giant’s supporters) when it publicly endorsed Hillary Clinton for president. Clearly, PP’s staff is falling into line, putting their money where the official mouth is, and helping to fund Clinton’s run.


Clinton is one of the most extreme pro-abortion politicians in the U.S., taking multiple positions in favor of abortion that the majority of Americans oppose. Clinton supports late-term abortion, and has taken a stand in favor of partial birth abortion. She has called preborn children “persons,” and yet claimed that they have no rights.

She is also supportive of D&E abortions – which very specifically tear a child limb from limb, rip their organs from their body, and crush their skull until their brain oozes out. That description sounds both sickening and terrifying, and yet, medically, it’s exactly what happens. (The video below explains D&E abortion from the factual perspective of Dr. Anthony Levatino, a former abortionist who did D&Es.)

As many news outlets have reported, Clinton has come out in support of abortions that target children for their gender or because they have Down syndrome. Steven Crowder wrote:

Seeing how extreme Hillary Clinton has been with abortion in the past – her whole family too, for that matter – nothing coming from her today should be seen as shocking. But supporting down syndrome-based and gender-based abortions?

Okay, still not shocking, but don’t you feel gross just knowing that it isn’t?
