The Minnesota affiliate of the nation’s biggest abortion is expanding its involvement in the political arena beyond merely supporting or opposing candidates.

Now, the Planned Parenthood of Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota affiliate of the abortion business is targeting an amendment to ensure voter fraud doesn’t take place at the polls.

Minnesota Public Radio has more on this decision, and says the abortion giant has created a political action fund to oppose the Minnesota voter ID amendment, which would require voters to show photo identification at the polls. Its public affairs director Timothy Stanley told MPR that ballot initiatives are important to the people Planned Parenthood works with.

Planned Parenthood’s board of directors has passed resolutions opposing the amendment, he said, but, “rather than raising money to oppose the amendment or fund Our Vote Our Future, the main organization working to defeat the voter ID amendment, Planned Parenthood plans to use its own staff and resources to campaign specifically on those two amendments.”

MPR indicates: “Stanley said that Planned Parenthood will be phoning, mailing and using social media to “make sure that people who support Planned Parenthood know that we are standing alongside the communities that are affected by these two amendments and we are calling on our supporters to vote no on these amendments.” It notes the amendment is expected to be approved at the polls.

Last week, the Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life (MCCL) Federal PAC endorsed Mitt Romney for President of the United States.



“On pro-life issues, Mitt Romney and Barack Obama provide a stark contrast. As the country’s most pro-abortion president, Barack Obama has pursued a radical pro-abortion agenda,” said Scott Fischbach, MCCL Federal PAC. “It is now time for pro-life Americans to unite behind Mitt Romney. For the sake of unborn children, the disabled and the elderly, we must win.”

“We are extremely gratified that Mitt Romney holds strong pro-life convictions and has not shied away from expressing them during the campaign,” Fischbach added. “We look forward to Romney’s election as our next pro-life president on November 6.”
