The longstanding relationship between Hillary Clinton and the nation’s largest abortion business is well-documented. Planned Parenthood made Clinton its first-ever endorsement of a presidential candidate and Clinton, in unsecured emails found on her controversial in-home email server, specifically requested to hang out with her “friends” at the abortion company.
Now, pro-life attorney Kristi Burton Brown has documented how the CEOs of local Planned Parenthood affiliates are extensively donating to Clinton’s presidential campaign:
The list below shows donations from Planned Parenthood affiliates’ top staff to Clinton. Donations from the current primary election cycle are specifically noted as being from 2015 or 2016. Since many of the donations from Planned Parenthood staff to Barack Obama were given in 2008, once he had secured the Democratic nomination, more are expected to come for Clinton later this year. You can check these donations yourself here. As of late April 2016, they total just over $23,600.

In March 2009, Hillary Clinton received Planned Parenthood’s Margaret Sanger award at an event in Houston. During the event, Clinton said that emphasizing and promoting abortion is a key issue in President Barack Obama’s foreign policy. She also defended taxpayer funded abortions for poor women.
During this election, Hillary has slammed a new law in Indiana banning abortions on babies with Down syndrome.
During an interview on The View recently Hillary Clinton said an unborn child just hours before delivery should have no Constitutional rights. Her comments came just days after Clinton said unborn children simply do not have any Constitutional rights, which would include the right to life.
In February, Clinton defended partial-birth abortions: “My husband vetoed a very restrictive legislation on late-term abortions, and he vetoed it at an event in the White House where we invited a lot of women who had faced this very difficult decision, that ought to be made based on their own conscience, their family, their faith, in consultation with doctors. Those stories left a searing impression on me,” she continued.
Clinton has said more taxpayer money needs to go to the Planned Parenthood abortion business and Clinton demonstrated her unyielding commitment to abortion and the Planned Parenthood abortion business, accepting their endorsement during a pro-abortion rally — saying she would be the abortion business’ president.
“I will always defend Planned Parenthood and I will say consistently and proudly, Planned Parenthood should be funded, supported and protected, not undermined, misrepresented and demonized,” Clinton said. “As your president, I will always have your back.”
At a speech to the Women in the World Conference in April 2015, Hillary Clinton argued, “Far too many women are denied access to reproductive health care (aka. abortion) and safe childbirth, and laws don’t count for much if they’re not enforced,” In order to expand worldwide access to abortion, she suggested that “deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed.”
In May 2015, the U.S. House passed the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act to protect unborn babies 20 weeks and older from excruciating late abortions. In addition to a statement slamming House lawmakers for advancing the bill, Clinton tweeted, “When it comes to women’s health, there are two kinds of experts: women and their doctors. True 40+ years ago, true today.”
At a presidential forum at Drake University, Clinton called ending the life of another human being a “fundamental human right.”
The first order of business for Clinton and her friends at the abortion company is to force Americans to pay for abortions with their tax dollars by attempting to overturn the Hyde Amendment, which has protected Americans from funding most all abortions since the late 1970s. Upheld by the Supreme Court, the Hyde Amendment is now a target of abortion advocates who have moved from pro-choice to pro-abortion — forcing Americans not only to accept unlimited abortions before birth but to pay for them.
