The abortion practitioner who is credited with popularizing the gruesome partial-birth abortion method is a stalwart supporter of Democratic candidates.

That late-term abortionist Martin Haskell supports Democrats should be no surprise — after all, it was a state law put into place mostly by Republicans and enforced by pro0life Gov. John Kasich that was responsible for stopping most abortions at one of his abortion clinics recently.

martinhaskellJason Hart, writing at Red State, provides the details about how one of the most infamous abortion doctors in the country supports top Democratic candidates:

Democrat candidates for five Ohio statewide offices received donations from partial-birth abortion pioneer Martin Haskell last month, based on reports filed with the secretary of state.

Haskell made the following $4,500 in campaign contributions in August:

  • $1,000 to gubernatorial candidate Ed FitzGerald
  • $1,000 to attorney general candidate David Pepper
  • $1,000 to secretary of state candidate Nina Turner
  • $1,000 to treasurer candidate Connie Pillich
  • $500 to auditor candidate John Patrick Carney

Haskell’s donations to Pillich this cycle now total $3,600. He has donated $1,500 each to FitzGerald and Pepper.

From 2010 through 2012, Haskell donated a sum of $4,600 to Ohio politicians, all Democrats. Of that subtotal, $750 went to Pillich.
