Planned Parenthood, vote

Taxpayer-funded abortion corporation Planned Parenthood has announced it is joining other “progressive” groups to invest an “unprecedented” $30 million to influence who is elected to key state and federal offices in the 2018 midterm elections. In addition, Planned Parenthood has vowed to spend $20 million through its own political action committees in campaigns across several states. But these millions are not really as unprecedented as Planned Parenthood wants the public to believe, as it has poured an extremely large amount of money into elections over the years to elect pro-abortion Democrats, some with less than successful results.

Major Democrat donors, like Deborah Simon, have given money to Planned Parenthood’s political super PAC, Planned Parenthood Votes:

Soros family money is also flowing into Planned Parenthood’s PAC. In July, Andrea Soros Colombel, daughter of billionaire George Soros and member of the Open Society Board, donated $1 million.

According to media outlets, the abortion corporation said it plans to spend $20 million, targeting candidates in eight to ten states. In Minnesota, former Planned Parenthood staffer Tina Smith is running for Senate.

CNN reported that the move is designed to “help Democrats,” adding, “The initial list of targets includes eight states: Arizona, Florida, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. It comes on top of $4.5 million spent on last year’s governor’s races in Virginia and New Jersey….”

“This is our last chance to flip some of those governors’ seats before redistricting,” Deirdre Schifeling, the executive director of Planned Parenthood Votes, told CNN.

A September 2018 article published by Fortune claims Planned Parenthood Votes is investing more than $4 million into 24 House races ahead of the midterm elections in November.

The spending spree under the political PAC, “Win Justice” is a joint effort from Planned Parenthood Votes, Center for Community Change Action, Color of Change PAC, and the very political Service Employees International Union (SEIU). (More on these groups in a separate article.) $3 million to jumpstart the campaign came from pro-abortion billionaire, George Soros.

Win Justice is currently spending heavily for the Bill Nelson campaign in Florida, where Nelson reportedly “has a long record of fighting against measures to ‘defund’ Planned Parenthood.”

On top of millions from Planned Parenthood, pro-abortion Emily’s List has vowed an unprecedented $37 million.

There are multiple reasons the abortion giant and its abortion cronies are dumping millions into local, state and federal elections:

  • Judges on the state and federal level can uphold pro-life regulations and laws, as well as free speech protections outside abortion facilities.
  • City/county commissions can decide what programs and organizations to fund or contract with.
  • Local school boards can choose to keep Planned Parenthood’s sex education out of their schools.
  • State lawmakers can pass pro-life laws and investigate abuse.
  • Governors can veto abortion legislation, sign pro-life legislation, issue executive orders to prohibit tax funding of abortion organizations, and more.
  • State attorney generals can investigate fraud, abuse and any number of illegal activities within the abortion industry.
  • Federal (House and Senate) lawmakers can introduce, support and vote for pro-life legislation and continue to investigate abuses within the abortion industry.
  • Lawmakers will also have a say over upcoming Supreme Court picks, probably one of the most important issues at hand today.

Also at the Federal level, lawmakers can send or withhold funding, influence appointments, control oversight, and issue important rule changes to key federal agencies such as:

  • Health and Human Services (HHS), where Title X family planning grants are flowing to Planned Parenthood to the tune of $60 million a year, despite aiding abusers in the cover-up of child sexual abusers.
  • Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which can change current requirements of the abortion pill regimen by permitting the “home use” of the dangerous pills. FDA officials have also (to the outrage of the American public) contracted with Advanced Bioscience Resources (ABR) to obtain “fresh human tissues” from aborted babies. ABR has paid Planned Parenthood thousands for aborted fetal tissue.
  • The National Institutes of Health (NIH), where taxpayers fund millions of dollars for human fetal tissue experiments, which may contain tissue from aborted fetuses, is estimated to spend $103 million in FY2018 and $95 million in FY2019 on these potentially gruesome research programs.

Tax dollars to Planned Parenthood from various agencies total over a billion dollars, according to the Charlotte Lozier Institute, which found:

From 2013 to 2015, Planned Parenthood spent a total of $1.5 billion in federal program funds, including combined federal and state funds under federal programs. Of this total, Planned Parenthood received $1.2 billion in reimbursements from Medicaid, and the remaining $289 million came from various programs under the Department of Health and Human Services as well as the departments of Agriculture, Education, Homeland Security, Housing and Urban Development, and Justice.

The 2018 midterms are critical if pro-life voters want to keep the gains they have made on the state level and even more important if voters hope to continue to encourage Congress and the Trump administration to keep their promises to defund the nation’s largest and most profitable abortion corporation.

Live Action News has previously documented that, despite Planned Parenthood’s many abuses, year after year it receives $1.5 million taxpayer dollars every day, while ending the lives of 900 preborn babies through abortion. With so much on the line, is it any wonder this “healthcare organization” is vowing to spend millions to protect this cash cow?

According to TMZ, Gwyneth Paltrow turned an already-embarrassing Hollywood fundraiser into “The Dating Game.”

Obama arrived in Brentwood to attend a Democratic National Committee fundraiser at the home of actress Gwyneth Paltrow.

Actress Julia Roberts was spotted among the group of about 200 attendees.

Tickets for the reception started at $1,000; dinner tickets began at $15,000.

Paltrow introduced herself to Obama by saying: “I am one of your biggest fans, if not the biggest.”

After referring to the president’s efforts on sustainable energy and equal pay for women, Paltrow gushed as she introduced President Obama, “You’re so handsome that I can’t speak properly.”

I’m taking her to the next event,” Obama quipped when it was his turn to speak.

Obama responded in is speech by thanking the actress for her work, “Gwyneth, thank you for not just what you did this time, but what you did last time, because it did make a huge difference to us.”

Now the media is all abuzz, calling Paltrow’s comments embarrassing!

The frightening part is what she said next, “It would be wonderful if we were able to give this man all of the power that he needs to pass the things that he needs to pass.

Planned Parenthood Prez joined Michelle Obama to support pro-abortion Gubernatorial candidate

Cecile Richards Michele Obama Mike Michaud

Michelle Obama joined a campaign rally for a pro-abortion Democratic gubernatorial candidate in the state of Maine.

She did not use the word abortion but said this, “And if we don’t show up at the polls this November, if we don’t elect leaders like Mike who will put people first instead of just fighting for special interests, then we know exactly what will happen. We will see more folks interfering in women’s private decisions about our health care. We’ll see more opposition to raising the minimum wage and ensuring access to health care for hard-working folks.”

Just before saying this, “And here is what I want you to remember: Those kids, our kids, are counting on us to stand up for them this November. And there are so many of these kids all over the country who I meet every day who are counting on us. Kids like a young man named Lawrence Lawson who I met earlier this year.

Apparently to Michelle Obama, supporting pro-abortion candidates such as her husband and Mike Michaud is somehow supporting kids- who knew!

Michele Obama Mike Michaud

She was joined by Planned Parenthood president, Cecile Richards to support Democratic candidate for governor Mike Michaud at the University of Maine on Friday night.

In her speech, the First Lady gave a shout out to the abortion giant prez,” And I also want to give a big hello to Cecile Richards who has been such a strong, passionate advocate for women and families across this country — and I’m thrilled — it was a pleasure, I know for all of you, to hear from her today,” said Michelle Obama.

Cecile Richards Mike Michaud oct 2014

Cecile Richards’speech was typical political jargon where she begins by giving a salute back to Michelle Obama, Planned Parenthood Action, and then says this, “I am so honored to be here today on behalf of the three million patients who count on Planned Parenthood each year for health care….for cancer screenings, for birth control, for breast cancer exams, and yes for safe and legal abortion.”

Richards then bemoaned the recent decision by the Fifth Circuit Court to allow strict pro-life regulations to go forward closing several abortion clinics in Texas, “We have seen the dangerous results of politicians putting their own personal agenda ahead of the rights of women to access health care that they need. And, what we’ve seen in Texas is that dozens of women’s health centers [ abortion clinics] have closed…and that’s simply because the legislature and our Governor put their own political ambitions ahead of women’s ability to make their own private medical health care decisions…”

How exactly is killing an unborn child now considered health care?

Cecile Richards Mike Michaud Tweet

Mike Michaud clearly supports abortion on demand and writes this on his campaign website:

Women’s Health Issues:

Not only must we work to increase access to affordable health care for women and families, but we must also ensure that in doing so, women have access to a full range of reproductive health care options and family planning services. This includes access to contraception, maternity and newborn care, and safe abortion services. That is why I have supported public funding for family planning services and fought to ensure that emergency contraception is readily available to women on military bases.

As governor, I will veto any bill that attempts to weaken Maine’s Reproductive Privacy Act or infringes on a woman’s right to choose. I will also oppose any attempt to restrict access the full range of healthcare services–including abortion–provided under the Affordable Care Act I supported in Congress. Decisions about whether to choose adoption, end a pregnancy, or raise a child must be left to a woman, her family and her faith, with the counsel of her health care provider.

Like many Americans, my views on abortion have evolved over the years. Thanks to the countless women who have shared their stories and concerns with me while I’ve been in office, it’s become clear to me that a woman’s decision to end her pregnancy is a decision that only she can make. I’m proud to say I now have a 100 percent rating from NARAL – the nation’s leading organization for women’s reproductive rights – as well as a 92 percent lifetime rating with Planned Parenthood.

Women don’t turn to politicians for advice about birth control, mammograms, cancer screenings or treatments. So, politicians should not be involved in a woman’s personal medical decisions about her pregnancy.

Another Texas Democrat admits she had an Abortion

Recently Texas Gubernatorial candidate, Wendy Davis, whose campaign is supported by abortion workers, came out in her book to admit she had abortions.

Now another Texas politician has admitted her role in aborting her child as well.

According to the Texas Tribune, during a panel discussion at The Texas Tribune Festival, state Rep. Dawnna Dukes, D-Austin, revealed that she has had an abortion.

Dukes, told the audience, “To the world, I had an abortion.” Dukes also noted that she had not suffered from any psychological effects because of the procedure.

The paper said that Dukes posted on Facebook that she was grateful that “a safe and legal means was available when as an adult woman, I had to make the decision to have a medical procedure performed.”

My reason for making this decision was private and will remain private — end of story,” she wrote. “Folks have about as much right to know why as they have a right to know when/why you have a pap smear, rectal exam or root-canal — none whatsoever.”

Here is the state rep at a rally in Austin bragging about her abortion support:

According to TalkBusiness.net, Little Rock Family Planning Services contributed $1,000 to Pearson. According to the abortion clinic’s website, they offer abortion services during the second trimester of pregnancy – between 14 and 21 weeks.

Pearson’s report also shows contributions from employees of Planned Parenthood and from the Arkansas Director of the ACLU.

The website Abortiondocs.com has documented several medical emergencies at Little Rock Family Planning- which you can see here.

Complaint filed against Democrat after offensive abortion tweet

Posted in Democrat with tags , , , , , , , on July 7, 2014 by saynsumthn

Council_HDavis A South Bend Democrat is in hot water after he tweeted a suggestion that Republicans be aborted.

The tweet from Democrat Common Council member Henry Davis Jr. was offensive enough directed at Republicans but it also appeared to target the mentally handicapped.

The tweet stated, “Maybe if they could have discovered unborn babies with shortage of brain cells you republicans could have been aborted.”

SouthBendCouncilmanHenryDavisJrTweet-ABC57

A complaint has been filed against Common Council member Henry Davis Jr. by Rhonda Richards, a Republican resident of the city.

Speaking to the South Bend Tribune Richards described the offending tweet as “just too much.”

The fact that he believes people should be aborted just because they may not have the same brain function as someone else; the fact he wants people aborted at all; the fact he’s so afraid of his potential opponents he would want them aborted before they’re even born – the whole concept of it is just too over-the-top to be tolerated,” Richards said.

The tweet, which originated with another user, originally appeared on Davis Jr.’s Twitter page , a screen grab provided by the county GOP shows, but was later taken down, reports the paper.

“We are disappointed in Henry’s decision to use his official Twitter account to convey such a hateful and twisted message,” GOP Chair Deb Fleming said at the time. “I guess when it comes to Republicans equality and tolerance don’t matter.”

Davis responded by telling the Tribune that his social media accounts are personal and not associated with his duties as a councilman. “That is my Twitter,” he said. “You can’t qualify it as being wrong or right because there are no laws.”

The tweet has since been removed from the page !
