Planned Parenthood Action Fund endorses former Vice President Joe Biden despite a mixed record on abortion rights. To support Democrats, the group is boosting spending by 50% over the 2016 campaign.
Planned Parenthood announced their endorsement for 2020 Democrat presumptive nominee former Vice President Joe Biden in a video oddly claiming the 2020 presidential election between President Donald Trump and Biden is a “life and death election.”
“This is literally a life and death election. We felt like we can’t endure another four years of Trump; we have to do everything we can to get him out of office,” acting president of Planned Parenthood Alexis McGill Johnson told to NPR.”We need to be able to kind of move past this very challenging, divisive, polarized era and move into a place where we can actually rebuild our lives after this disaster,” McGill added.
Those words were echoed in their endorsement video for Biden.
PP profited $110 million dollars last year. The most controversial care they give is abortion which they report 345,672 babies were aborted in 2019. That’s 947 babies aborted each day in America. That’s up from the reported 332,757 in 2018.
They also provided 593,586 Emergency Contraception Kits. Like the plan B pill. This is when the first birth control fails or the the person didn’t use protection at all.
Some cases PP recently fought or is fighting.
McGill Johnson told NPR that it’s urgent to reverse Trump’s policies.
“I think that’s where most Americans are,” she said. “We need to be able to kind of move past this very challenging, divisive, polarized era and move into a place where we can actually rebuild our lives after this disaster.”
In response, Jeanne Mancini, president of the anti-abortion rights group March For Life, said in a statement, “It is offensive to hear our nation’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, an organization that claims the lives of 345,672 American babies annually (a third of all of the abortions in this country each year), call the 2020 cycle a ‘life and death’ election. Those who really care about protecting life realize that the election of Planned Parenthood-endorsed candidate, Joe Biden, will result in a major increase of tax dollars going to the billion-dollar organization, including direct payment for abortions, among other deadly consequences.”
PP has endorsed a Democratic candidate every election cycle since 2004. However, Biden’s candidacy is receiving the largest donation ever at a whooping $45 million dollars.
Here is Biden at a presidential primary forum hosted by Planned Parenthood Action Fund last year in South Carolina in which they asked him about his abortion record.
Planned Parenthood or Pro-Abortion, are one of the top priorities of the Democrat party. They have helped the organization grow every year. Even regardless of President Trump.
