It’s no secret that Planned Parenthood desired a Clinton victory to ensure its continued federal funding. It’s also no secret that Planned Parenthood feared the worst for its abortion business should Clinton lose.
From its unprecedented endorsement of Clinton in the Democratic primary, to its campaign to portray Trump and Pence as anti-women’s rights, America’s largest abortion provider rested its hopes on a victory which nearly all experts predicted – many with high confidence – would happen. As we have all learned over the past few hours, they were wrong.
As Live Action News’ Rebecca Downs reported in May of this year, Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards told ThinkProgress that her organization “plan[ned] to spend at least $20 million to help win key Senate races and the presidency this November.”
Now the election is over. Republicans held on to both the House and Senate, and President-elect Donald Trump, as well as Hillary Clinton, are now urging the nation to unite as one people. So how did Planned Parenthood respond to its favored presidential candidate’s resounding defeat? See for yourself:
The tweet links to a page with the headline, “Donate to the Planned Parenthood Action Fund Today.” But Planned Parenthood’s statement is clearly a manipulation of the facts. Trump and Pence have indicated intent to block a corrupt organization’s access to federal funding and to protect preborn lives from being destroyed — and apparently Planned Parenthood equates this to “blocking patients’ access to care.” Didn’t they get the memo (i.e. the election results) that the people aren’t buying their pro-abortion political-speak?
In addition to imploring supporters for cash, Planned Parenthood also tweeted this following the election:
I didn’t realize that speaking against the nation’s largest and most profitable killer of preborn children amounted to “hate” and “threats,” but let’s move on. Not surprisingly, Planned Parenthood is “angry, shocked, and disgusted” when America doesn’t buy into their pro-abortion election agenda, but doesn’t seem to have any empathy for the millions of Americans who feel angry, shocked, and disgusted at Planned Parenthood’s violent destruction of preborn life for payment, or that Planned Parenthood officials have allegedly engaged in unethical practices related to the illegal sale of fetal body parts, or the ridiculously (and terrifyingly) high number of patients some Planned Parenthood facilities have hospitalized, or the multiple times the abortion giant has been caught engaging in fraud.
But yeah, more money. That’s what it’s all about. Or is it? In the end, will money be able to save a corrupt organization which profits from death? The surprising results of the election may indicate otherwise.
