Who would have guessed that the most compelling reason to de-fund Planned Parenthood would come from their own lips?
They have so very LITTLE need of taxpayer handouts that they can afford to dump tens of millions into partisan political campaigns.
If they can afford to throw away tens of millions of dollars and not miss it, clearly they don’t need taxpayer help to provide ‘health care’ to women.
If anything, this looks more like a legal way for Leftists to launder taxpayer money into funding their own political campaigns.
Planned Parenthood’s super PAC announced a $45 million electoral campaign on Wednesday to defeat President Trump and Republicans in key Senate races.
The investment will fund a “large-scale” grassroots organization and canvass, digital, television, radio and mail programs.
“The stakes are higher than ever, and we’re coming out more powerfully than ever with the largest investment we’ve ever made,” said Kelley Robinson, executive director of Planned Parenthood Votes, in an interview with The Hill.
The campaign will focus on Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Michigan, Minnesota, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

They’re such ‘stalwart defenders’ of all that is just and good, aren’t they?
‘I felt like I was selling abortions sometimes, more than I was treating people’
That’s a long way from the ‘reproductive health’ talking points Planned Parenthood shoves down our throats. (Full context, here)
All about the ‘health care’, are they?
Planned Parenthood saw internal turmoil this year as well with the firing of its former president, Dr. Leana Wen.
Wen had claimed she was fired after nine months on the job because she had “philosophical” disagreements with the board of directors on how to handle attacks on abortion access, saying she viewed it as a health care issue while they saw it as a political one.
These are the same people that helped give us Governor ‘Infanticide/KKK/Blackface’ Ralph Northam by kicking a couple of million dollars into his campaign.
If the Left is serious about taking ‘dark money’ out of politics, they should start with Planned Parenthood.
As we’ve seen from the Baby Parts videos, money doesn’t get much ‘darker’ than theirs… unless you’re being bankrolled by Criminal Cartels pushing for Open Borders or something.
