Planned Parenthood Trashes Mike Pence, Says He’s Just Worried About “Women’s Periods”

Planned Parenthood didn’t waste any time launching an attack against pro-life Indiana Gov. Mike Pence after news reports surfaced that he will be Donald Trump’s vice presidential pick.

Pence has a strong pro-life record as Indiana governor and has weathered numerous attacks from abortion activists. One of the most crude attacks was “Periods for Pence,” where abortion activists harassed the governor’s office by sending detailed messages about their menstrual cycles. The attacks came after Pence signed a law in March to protect unborn babies with disabilities like Down syndrome from being aborted.

Planned Parenthood tried to resurrect the juvenile pro-abortion campaign online today. Just after the news broke about Pence, the abortion business tweeted:

And it followed up with this:

Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards posted a similar message:

Pence is a pro-life champion who has signed multiple pieces of pro-life legislation into law and led the fight in Congress to de-fund Planned Parenthood. His selection as vice president would go a long way toward mollifying concerns some pro-life voters have had about Trump, who has campaigned as a pro-life candidate but who has made some misstatements about abortion and Planned Parenthood.

Earlier this year, Pence signed Indiana House Bill 1337, which bans abortion doctors from knowingly aborting an unborn baby solely because of a genetic disability such as Down syndrome, the unborn baby’s race or sex. The bill also has several other abortion-related measures, including a requirement that aborted or miscarried babies’ bodies be cremated or buried and another requirement that abortionists who have hospital admitting privileges renew them annually. The burial/cremation requirement backs up a law passed in 2015 by Gov. Pence requiring that aborted babies’ bodies be disposed of in a humane way.

“Throughout my public career, I have stood for the sanctity of life. HEA 1337 is a comprehensive pro-life measure that affirms the value of all human life, which is why I signed it into law today,” Governor Pence said in a statement when he signed the legislation.

Pence continued: “I believe that a society can be judged by how it deals with its most vulnerable—the aged, the infirm, the disabled and the unborn. HEA 1337 will ensure the dignified final treatment of the unborn and prohibits abortions that are based only on the unborn child’s sex, race, color, national origin, ancestry, or disability, including Down syndrome.”

Planned Parenthood immediately filed a lawsuit against the law. The abortion business failed to convince the general public to oppose the Indiana law, so now it hopes to convince a judge.

Trump also is under attack by the abortion giant and its allies. Earlier this year, the abortion giant called Trump “dangerous” because he would “ban abortions.” In June, it also attacked Trump as “hateful” in a series of online ads aimed at young voters.

The Trump-Pence team would present a stark contrast on abortion to pro-abortion Democrat Hillary Clinton, who received Planned Parenthood’s endorsement. Clinton promised Planned Parenthood that she would try to overturn the Hyde Amendment and force taxpayers to fund abortions if elected president.
