As tensions rise in the midst of the 2020 presidential election season, Planned Parenthood this week launched the largest electoral campaign in its history, with plans to spend $45 million on pro-choice candidates.

It is no surprise that Planned Parenthood is funding pro-abortion politicians, the vast majority of whom are Democrats.

July - Interview - CBS - News - Parenthood

In a July 2019 interview with CBS News, Planned Parenthood’s president and CEO, Alexis McGill Johnson, said that because of new laws restricting abortion, the organization has been forced to become a health care provider and an advocacy group.

“We are primarily a health care provider,” Johnson said. “We provide access to sexual and reproductive health, in some cases primary care. We’re not political by nature but we’ve been politicized, and that fight has actually been our focus — to ensure that our health centers stay open.”

Advocates - Issue - Planned - Parenthood - Part

But pro-life advocates take issue with Planned Parenthood, which is funded in part by taxpayers, spending millions to elect pro-abortion candidates.

Mat Staver, the founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel, a nonprofit law firm that defends pro-life values, told The Western Journal that Planned Parenthood receives about half a billion dollars in state and federal funds each year.

Money - Intervention - Platform - Pro-abortion - Platform

“They’re obviously using some of that money, directly or indirectly, to engage in political intervention, and they’re supporting the Democratic platform which is a very pro-abortion platform,” Staver said in an interview.

“Their own resource and their own statements clearly indicate that they’re all about getting money through blood, through the shedding of innocent children’s blood, and they use that then to engage in politics.”

Parenthood - Organization

Planned Parenthood “is a despicable organization,” he said.

Will the Planned Parenthood campaign impact voters going into the 2020 elections?
