President-elect Donald Trump announced that he will nominate ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson to be Secretary of State. While Tillerson doesn’t have much of a record when it comes to abortion issues on which to judge him, the Planned Parenthood abortion business today issued a statement opposing his nomination.
If the views of the nation’s biggest abortion company are any indication, Tillerson will at least be no friend of Planned Parenthood has he represents the United States abroad.
In saying it is “alarmed” by the nomination, the Planned Parenthood abortion company used the typical “women’s rights” and “health” language to cover for its abortion agenda when addressing the nominee i a statement:
““It is imperative our leaders champion human rights to continue global progress, which is why Planned Parenthood is alarmed to see the nomination of Rex Tillerson, who has an international track record of putting corporate profit over the fundamental rights of people,” the abortion company, which ignores the “fundamental rights” of unborn children daily, said today.
“As a result of recent progress under President Obama, 27 million women and couples can now get contraceptive supplies and services, averting 6 million unintended pregnancies and saving 11,000 women’s lives. These women and families cannot afford to go backward,” the abortion giant added.
“Planned Parenthood believes that all people deserve to live healthy lives, no matter who they are or where they live. We expect the Senate to conduct a full and fair examination of Tillerson’s record and experience to serve in this critical role,” it continued.“Should Tillerson be confirmed, Planned Parenthood hopes he will help continue America’s role as a leader for women’s rights internationally.”
The abortion corporation said it is particularly concerned about the Mexico City Policy. That’s the policy provision pro-abortion President Barack Obama rescinded that protected American taxpayers from funding groups that promote and perform abortions in other countries, such as Planned Parenthood.
President elected Donald Trump said during the campaign that he would sign legislation to defund Planned Parenthood and called for permanently banning taxpayer funding of abortions, so he would presumably put the pro-life position back in place. That would revoke tens of millions of dollars in funding to the Planned Parenthood abortion company that it has used to push its abortion agenda internationally.
