Posted on 02/02/2016 6:32:58 AM PST by Morgana
With late-braking polls showing pro-abortion Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders running very competitively with pro-abortion Hillary Clinton in Iowa, the site of todayâs caucuses, the Planned Parenthood abortion business spent six figures on a huge ad buy over the weekend.
The abortion company is pulling out all of the stops to elect its best friend president and its lobbying arm purchased the large advertising buy on Friday to give Clinton a last-minute shot in the arm.
âThereâs too much at stake for us to take a back seat in this election. Every single leading Republican candidate would strip health care from millions across the country â blocking patients from seeking services at Planned Parenthood, banning safe, legal abortion and even ending insurance coverage for birth control,â Deirdre Schifeling, executive director of Planned Parenthood Action Fund, said in a statement. âHillary Clinton is someone who wonât back down from this fight â sheâs made it clear that fighting for womenâs health and reproductive rights is a top priority.
âAt the end of the day, sheâs the one we trust to go head to head with the extreme anti-abortion politicians hell-bent on rolling back the progress weâve made for women,â Schifeling said.
SIGN THE PLEDGE: I Pledge to Vote for a Pro-Life Candidate for President
The abortion corporation purchased ad space to run two videos pushing Clintonâs candidacy on the homepages of the Cedar Rapids Gazette and The Des Moines Register newspapers.
Responding to the purchase, Marjorie Dannenfelser, the head of the Susan B. Anthony List, said, âWhether it is Hillary Clinton or another of the pro-abortion candidates on the Democratic side, itâs clear the Democrat running in November will be a pro- abortion radical.â
âThe nationâs largest abortion provider endorsed Hillary earlier this month â their first-ever primary endorsement! â and promised to spend $20 million this year supporting her and her pro-abortion allies running for office,â she said.
Dannenfelser said Planned Parenthood is getting a quid pro quo from its best friend.
âHillary has promised to get rid of the Hyde Amendment, which would clear the way for the expansion of taxpayer-funded abortion up until birth,â she said. âHillary has said she would favor appointing Barack Obama to the Supreme Court a guaranteed pro-abortion vote! Hillary has also refused to watch the full undercover Planned Parenthood videos, and has consistently supported the organization since the release of the footage exposing their role in the harvest and sale of body parts from aborted babies.â
âWe must elect a pro-life President this year and retain pro-life majorities in both the House and Senate,â she concluded.
Clinton recently made a campaign promise that would force her radical abortion policies on the American people by repealing the Hyde Amendment and using tax dollars to pay for womenâs abortions. Clinton previously said she also would not restrict abortion for any reason through all nine months of pregnancy.On the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, while tens of thousands of pro-lifers braved a snow storm to march for life in Washington, D.C., Clinton spent the day campaigning for abortion. She joined abortion advocates on Jan. 22 in New Hampshire to celebrate the infamous U.S. Supreme Court decision that led to 58 million abortions.
During the event, Clinton said she wants to give poor women access to taxpayer-funded abortions, because it would help them economically.
âIt should not be that some who are fortunate economically can access their rights [to abortion] while all others are left behind,â Clinton said. âHuman rights, civil rights, womenâs rights matter. And there is no more important issue than reproductive rights.â
SIGN THE PETITION! We Oppose Hillary Clinton!
Planned Parenthood, which already reaps in $550 million in taxpayer dollars each year, stands to benefit even more if Clinton becomes president and allows full-fledged taxpayer funding of abortion. Abortions and revenue almost certainly would increase for Planned Parenthood if Clinton becomes president. The group performs almost 330,000 abortions every year â more than any other group in the U.S.
Polling consistently shows that a majority of Americans, even those who identify as pro-choice, disagree with Clintonâs proposed abortion policies. A recent poll found that 68 percent of Americans oppose taxpayer funding of abortion, LifeNews reported.
Clintonâs extreme position on abortion is clear. At a campaign event in August, she compared pro-lifers to terrorists. Then, during a September interview on CBS, Clinton revealed that she wouldnât support a federal limit on abortion âat any state of pregnancyâ in the name of a âwomanâs right to choose.â
This position, too, stands in stark opposition to most Americansâ positions on abortion, according to polling. A Marist survey found that 8 in 10 Americans, including 82 percent of women, would restrict abortion to the first three months of pregnancy, at most. Even 66 percent of Americans who identify as pro-choice say they want more abortion restrictions.
Did the ad end with, “I’m Paul Ryan and I approved the funding for this message”?
Safe, legal abortion is always deadly to one of the parties involved.
They should not be funded by the government if they use funds to support political candidates.
Advanced - blatant - democrat/progressive money laundering.
Justice Dept forces states to give money to PP ( for “women’s health care” the feminists whine, you know, “choice” the euphemism for murdering unborn children), while the feds give half a Billion tax dollars directly to them, PP in turn finances ONLY democrat campaigns.
Kind of like that overpriced coffee shop chain that only supports progressives, but we aren’t forced, at the prospect of going to federal prison, to buy their crap.
Our tax dollars at work..sigh..
Might have been Mitt Romney.
One hundred percent of his supporters have been of this same ilk. It defines both him and by extension them.
Correction: Given all the federal money that goes to Planned Parenthood, American taxpayers - via Planned Parenthood, spent six figures to elect abortion activist Hillary Clinton, i.e., we’re given the government the money they need to destroy America. And it’s not just through Planned Parenthood...
And it almost became a gigantic waste of money. Sanders’ surprisingly strong showing in Iowa (he would be favored in New Hampshire, given Sanders’ home state of Vermont is right next door) has to worry Hillary Clinton to no end.
The abortion and baby parts wholesaling company ...
Limbaugh has said twice now "Why does the government even bother collecting taxes. Collections mean nothing, they spend whatever they want?".
How does Planned Parenthood have that much ‘profit’ left over to use ?
They can’t afford to pay for properly licensed help.
They can’t afford janitors to wipe the blood up.
They can’t afford licensed doctors.
They don’t get any money from their patients who are poor.
Planned Parenthood is something like a franchise operation. Each of the “local” offices appears to be it’s own 501(c)3.
Cecile: Karl, we need to get our game up in Iowa. Got any suggestions?
Democrats will defend abortion âtil the last baby dies...
Abortion is NOT “health care”. Stop letting the left use this ludicrous sophistry.
Yeah... saw one of their franchise meetings.
Does she get a cut of the parts business, or does all of that end up in the exotic car fund?
