CNN has announced that Planned Parenthood’s political arm will spend at least $20 million — a figure that is predicted to rise — in political races in the 2018 midterm. This $20 million will focus on eight states and their governor’s or Senate races. In some of the eight states, Planned Parenthood will reportedly spend in a “two-for-one” manner, and advertise against pro-life candidates in both a Senate and a governor’s race. None of this $20 million accounts for the multitude of political donations or spending Planned Parenthood will do in U.S. House or local races across the nation.
The abortion giant’s focus is on flipping enough Senate seats to give pro-abortion Democrats control of the Senate so they can block President Trump’s judicial appointees and quell any attempts to defund Planned Parenthood or pass a 20-week abortion ban.
Planned Parenthood also wants to turn over pro-life governor’s seats so that abortion-focused candidates can veto or otherwise block life legislation on a state level. Passing pro-woman, pro-family legislation on a state level has been one of the pro-life movement’s most effective tools to saves lives over at least the last decade. Planned Parenthood aims to stop the progress.
CNN reports that the dedicated $20 million is “one of the biggest outside spending forces in Democratic politics” this cycle. The abortion corporation continues to have millions of dollars of room in its budget to spend politically because taxpayers are forced give it roughly half a billion every year. While taxpayer dollars are not supposed to directly go to Planned Parenthood’s political activities or to abortion, the reality of fungibility makes it impossible for taxpayers to not be unwillingly involved in funding abortion and pro-abortion candidates.
So, thanks to Planned Parenthood’s taxpayer-driven wealth, it will push forward in its attempts to turn Arizona, Florida, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin into abortion bastions. As CNN notes, these unfortunate states are only the “initial targets.”
