Chelsea Clinton: “We Need to Do Everything We Can to Protect Planned Parenthood”

The Clintons have been close allies to the abortion business Planned Parenthood on the presidential campaign trail.

Hillary Clinton, whose record on abortion is extreme and out of touch with most Americans, was endorsed by Planned Parenthood in January. Recently, the national group launched a $1 million-plus advertising campaign for the Democratic candidate. Earlier this year, the abortion business also spent six figures on a huge ad buy for Clinton in Iowa.

Hillary’s daughter, Chelsea, has been campaigning for her mother while pregnant with her second child. On Sunday in Rochester, Minnesota, Chelsea emphasized her mother’s unwavering devotion to the scandalous abortion group.

SIGN THE PLEDGE! We Oppose Hillary Clinton!

The Post-Bulletin reported:

A 17-old-year old girl in the crowd told Clinton that she is a peer educator at Planned Parenthood and she wanted to know about the often-embattled organization’s future.

“It’s important that we all care about Planned Parenthood. We need to do everything we can to protect it,” she said.

Planned Parenthood is currently being investigated for selling aborted babies’ body parts in U.S. Congress and several states. Though Clinton and her family have been defending the abortion group, Clinton said she has not watched any of the undercover videos that launched the investigations.

Planned Parenthood, which already reaps in $550 million in taxpayer dollars each year, would benefit even more if Hillary Clinton becomes president. Clinton promised to overturn the Hyde Amendment if elected, an action that could give Planned Parenthood a new influx of abortion business supported by taxpayer dollars.

Polling consistently shows that a majority of Americans, even those who identify as pro-choice, disagree with Clinton’s proposed abortion policies. A recent poll found that 68 percent of Americans oppose taxpayer funding of abortion, LifeNews reported.

Clinton’s extreme position on abortion is clear. At a campaign event in August, she compared pro-lifers to terrorists. Then, during a September interview on CBS, Clinton revealed that she wouldn’t support a federal limit on abortion “at any state of pregnancy” in the name of a “woman’s right to choose.”

This position, too, stands in stark opposition to most Americans’ positions on abortion, according to polling. A Marist survey found that 8 in 10 Americans, including 82 percent of women, would restrict abortion to the first three months of pregnancy, at most. Even 66 percent of Americans who identify as pro-choice say they want more abortion restrictions.
