The top vice president at the Planned Parenthood abortion business has issued a threat to president elected Donald Trump and pro-life Republicans who want to defund it. She says they do so at their peril.

One of the first orders of business for the pro-life community when President Trump takes office next year and a new session of Congress opens is passing a reconciliation bill that would both repeal Obamacare as well as defund the Planned Parenthood abortion business.

Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest abortion company — routinely killing more than 320,000 unborn babies every year. The abortion business has been caught selling the body parts of aborted babies as well as overstating the percentage of time it spends on legitimate healthcare apart from abortions.

Leading pro-life organizations and members of Congress want to divert the funds to legitimate health care clinics that provide real Health Care for Women.

SIGN THE PETITION! Congress Must De-Fund Planned Parenthood Immediately

Dawn Laguens, executive vice president and chief brand officer of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund (PPAF) told reporters that they mdefund the abortion corporation “at their peril.”

Planned Parenthood is issuing a warning of sorts to President-elect Donald Trump, Vice President–elect Mike Pence, and the Republican-controlled Congress preparing for a new session next month: Defund Planned Parenthood at your own risk.

“There’s going to be a big, disabling, divisive fight,” Dawn Laguens, executive vice president and chief brand officer of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund (PPAF) said today in a conference call with reporters. “They’re not just going to be hearing from some liberal Democrats. They’re going to be hearing from people across the political spectrum, and they don’t pay attention at their peril.”

“Donald Trump has to ask himself, is that something he wants in the first 100 days of his administration?” Laguens said.

Trump has specifically promised he would sign a bill as president to de-fund Planned Parenthood. In an interview with David Brody of CBN, Trump made that promise:

David Brody: “As a President Trump, if a bill came to your desk that would defund Planned Parenthood you would support that, you would sign that?”

Donald Trump: “Yes, because as long as they do the abortion I am not for funding Planned Parenthood… As long as they’re involved with abortion, as far as I’m concerned forget it, I wouldn’t fund them regardless. I would defund Planned Parenthood because of their view and the fact of their work on abortion…. I am for defunding Planned Parenthood as long as they are involved with abortion.”
