Planned Parenthood loves Hillary Clinton. According to her campaign financial records, the former Secretary of State has received 20 times more money from them than other pro-abortion Democrats.
The Washington Free Beacon reports that her first quarter fundraising total nearly matches the amount of money she received over the course of her previous three political campaigns.
In fact, the records reveal that she’s received more money than Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., VT), former Rhode Island governor Lincoln Chafee, former Maryland governor Martin O’Malley, and the former Virginia senator Jim Webb. Sen. Sanders is extreme on abortion and has a six-percent pro-life voting record according to National Right to Life.
In the past, he’s opposed the partial birth abortion ban and supported President Obama’s radical abortion agenda. However, Sen. Sanders has only received two donations from Planned Parenthood for a total of $500.
Penny Nance of Concerned Women for America is not surprised by the Hillary Clinton-Planned Parenthood ties.
“While in South Carolina, Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton said that the videos are part of a concerted attack against the organization as well as against a woman’s ability to choose whether to have an abortion,” she said. “Of course Hillary jumped to Planned Parenthood’s defense. She had to. She has received twenty times more money from Planned Parenthood than her opponents have.”
As LifeNews previously reported, one of Hillary’s donations came from the CEO of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains (PPRM), Vicki Cowart. Cowart’s affiliate is featured in two videos released by the Center of Medical Progress showing Planned Parenthood executives haggling over the price of babies victimized in abortion. In one video, PPRM’s Medical Director, Dr. Savita Ginde explains how affiliates can get around laws that ban selling aborted babies for compensation. She says, “Putting it under ‘research’ gives us a little bit of an overhang over the whole thing. If you have someone in a really anti state who’s going to be doing this for you, they’re probably going to get caught.”
Additionally, after Clinton announced that she was running for president, Planned Parenthood sent out a press release welcoming her to the presidential field and called her candidacy a “historic moment.” In 2009, Clinton received Planned Parenthood’s Margaret Sanger award and has been given more campaign money from the abortion company than all of her competitors.
Earlier this week, Clinton shared a video message with her followers reassuring them that she supports Planned Parenthood.
About abortion, she said, “I’m proud to stand with Planned Parenthood, I’ll never stop fighting to protect the ability and right of every woman in this country to make her own health decisions.”
At no point in the video does she mention Planned Parenthood’s recent scandal or the countless reasons why they should be defunded and placed under investigation.
She says, “Republicans like Scott Walker and Jeb Bush are calling to defund PP,the country’s leading provider of reproductive health care. And they are joined by Republicans in Congress who will not waste a minute on voting to make that happen. If this feels like a full-on assault on women’s health— that’s because it is. When politicians talk about defunding Planned Parenthood they are talking about blocking millions of women, men and young people from life saving preventive care. Cancer screenings, breast exams, birth-control.”
Then she goes on to say that Planned Parenthood is a trusted health care provider and that Republicans have led efforts in states across the country to defund them before. Somehow Clinton overlooked the fact that Planned Parenthood has a history of hurting women in botched abortions, stealing money from taxpayer programs and performing abortions on abused minors without parental consent. She also overlooked the fact that the new videos confirm that their motives are, at the very least, questionable.

Clinton concluded, “When they attack women’s health, they attack America’s health and it’s wrong and were not going to let them get away with it. We’re not going back. We’re going to fight back. I’m proud to stand with Planned Parenthood. I’ll never stop fighting to protect the ability and right of every woman in this country to maker her own health care decisions.”
