The pro-abortion group Emily’s List, which supports Democratic candidates who oppose all limitations on abortion, will be partnering with Priorities USA in their efforts to elect Hillary Clinton and garner young female votes in the 2016 presidential election. The Washington Free Beacon reports that Priorities USA will be working with Emily’s List to launch a “war on women” themed campaign to encourage female voters to vote against Republican “extremism.” Ultimately, their hope is to raise $20 million to show women that Republican candidates are a threat to “reproductive health.”
In the 2016 election, millennial women will outnumber baby-boomer generation women, which is why they believe it is critical they bring in young female voters. In a statement, Emily’s List and Priorities USA explained, “This election cycle, all 2016 Republican candidates for president have pledged to block access to healthcare, oppose equal pay and fair wages for women in the workplace, and have worked to restrict access to the ballot box.”
The co-chair of Priorities USA, Guy Cecil, said, “The entire Republican field is a case study in extremism, and we must fight back against their agenda that would marginalize opportunities for women of every race, age, and economic background. We are proud to stand with EMILY’s List in support of Hillary Clinton, and we are excited to work together to help elect our country’s first woman president.”
Additionally, the president of Emily’s List, Stephanie Schriock, said that women’s rights are on the “chopping block” in 2016. She elaborated, “Women voters are the key to winning the 2016 elections, for Hillary Clinton and for Democrats up and down the ballot. We are thrilled to be joining forces with Priorities to make sure every woman in this country understands that with a Republican in the White House, our rights, freedoms and opportunities will be on the chopping block.”
Although it may seem like women would be prone to vote for Clinton in 2016, polls show that women are largely opposed to some of her radical abortion views. For example, in 2012, a poll was conducted in the District of Columbia to find out if women were less likely to support members of Congress who favored abortion to the point of birth compared with men.
The polling firm asked: Currently, within the District of Columbia, the nation’s capital, there is no abortion law at all. This means that abortion is legal there, for any reason, right up until the moment of birth. This summer, Congress is considering a bill that would not allow abortion in the District of Columbia after 22 weeks of pregnancy – which means after the beginning of the sixth month of pregnancy – unless the mother’s life is in danger. Would you be more or less likely to vote for a Member of Congress who votes in favor of this bill? And would you be more or less likely to vote for a Member of Congress who votes in favor of this bill?
The results were stunning: 62% of women said they would be more likely to vote for a member of Congress that supported a late-term abortion ban while 27% said they would not support a candidate that favored late abortion. Then, a 2014 Quinnipiac poll, found that 60% of Americans support legislation limiting abortions after 20 weeks, including 56% of Independents and 46% of Democrats.

Unfortunately, Clinton supports late-term abortion and has even spoken against legislation that would end painful dismemberment abortions in the United States. Clinton has also shared her support for Planned Parenthood in the wake of revelations about their organ harvesting business. As LifeNews previously reported, in a video message she said the following about abortion and the abortion company: “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.”
She added, “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 six videos confirm that their motives are, at the very least, questionable.
