Abortion activists admitted this week that they are worried about the re-launched FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails.
Planned Parenthood, NARAL and other pro-abortion groups want to see Clinton win the White House, and they are spending tens of millions of dollars to back her. But their money and influence have not been able to completely shield Clinton from scandal.
The past year has been full of controversies surrounding Clinton as well as the abortion giant Planned Parenthood. From the undercover videos that exposed Planned Parenthood’s aborted baby parts trafficking to Clinton’s email issues and questionable donations to her family’s foundation, the pro-abortion leaders have struggled to present themselves as trustworthy.
Just one week before the election, the situation has not changed.
Planned Parenthood Action Fund (PPAF) president Cecile Richards is acknowledging to abortion activists that tumult surrounding the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails is making it difficult for her organization to control its narrative through its usual media allies.
During a tele-townhall event this week, an attendee asked how Planned Parenthood supporters can “take the microphone away from Trump.” Richards admitted, “The media is difficult for us to control right now.”
Richards, who makes close to $1 million a year while Planned Parenthood aborts more babies than any other group in the U.S., also bashed Republican Donald Trump during the call. She claimed that Clinton is a “wonderful role model” and Trump is “unfit to be president.”
Other Planned Parenthood employees on the call hinted about another problem: Millennial voters are not enthusiastic about Clinton’s pro-abortion agenda.
“Millennials take abortion for granted. We need grandmothers to speak out,” a Florida abortion worker said.
Election polls have Clinton and Trump too close to call at this point.
The two candidates’ positions on abortion are very different. Clinton wants to overturn the Hyde Amendment and force taxpayers to pay for abortions through Medicaid; while Trump said he would defund Planned Parenthood as long as it continues doing abortions.
Clinton said she will nominate U.S. Supreme Court justices who will uphold Roe v. Wade and abortion on demand up until birth. Trump said he will nominate “pro-life” justices who will uphold the Constitution.
Several months ago, Clinton made it clear that she opposes even some of the most common-sense abortion regulations when she blasted Indiana for protecting unborn babies from abortion simply because of the baby’s sex or a disability. Then, during the last debate, she maintained that she supports late-term and partial-birth abortions on viable unborn babies.
