Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf is demonstrating just how dedicated he is to the abortion business Planned Parenthood.
On Tuesday, he made his third official visit this year with the abortion chain’s Pennsylvania leaders. The Bucks County Courier Times reports Wolf and his wife, Frances, joined them to promote a new Planned Parenthood initiative at Montgomery County Community College.
Sitting with Pennsylvania abortion activists, Wolf and his wife said how proud they are to be long-term supporters of Planned Parenthood.
“It’s particularly important that we fight to oppose any legislation that limits access to health care for all,” Wolf said. “I am committed to doing all that I can to make sure Pennsylvania is a place that celebrates individual choice, liberty and personal freedom.”
Wolf blasted federal legislators who have been working to defund the abortion chain, and vowed to fight to preserve the nearly half a billion tax dollars that Planned Parenthood receives each year.
“As the U.S. Senate continues to consider changes to the American health care system, we need to reject flawed amendments and support bipartisan efforts to make healthcare more available and affordable for all Americans, including preserving Planned Parenthood,” Wolf told participants in the community forum.
But Planned Parenthood isn’t a primary health care provider. It primarily provides abortions, and that is what Wolf and pro-abortion politicians like him truly are supporting when they back Planned Parenthood.
The abortion group’s annual report shows it performed 328,348 abortions on unborn babies in 2015, nearly 5,000 more than the previous year. Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion business in the U.S. and does about one third of all abortions in the country.
But Wolf and his wife disguised their support of abortion with the usual deceptive claims about women’s health care.
Here’s more from the news report:
Helping launch a video initiative telling the stories of Planned Parenthood clients and others, the Wolfs took a short “selfie video,” stating their support for the women’s health and reproductive services organization. The videos will be directed to elected officials, showcasing support for Planned Parenthood. …
Asked how he handles people who “push back” on his enthusiastic support of Planned Parenthood, Wolf responded, “I’m very confident I’m right, so that helps.”
The local news listed statistics showing Planned Parenthood’s health services in Pennsylvania, but it notably left out its abortion numbers. The abortion chain performs about half of all abortions in Pennsylvania, approximately 17,000 per year.
Aborting unborn babies is Planned Parenthood’s No. 1 priority. This became increasingly clear earlier this year when President Donald Trump offered to support an increase in taxpayer funding to Planned Parenthood if it stopped doing abortions.
Planned Parenthood claims abortions are just a small 3 percent of its total services, so the offer seemed to make a lot of sense. But the abortion chain refused and went so far as to call it “obscene and insulting.”
Planned Parenthood absolutely is replaceable as a health care provider. Its non-abortion services, such as breast cancer screenings and pap tests, are very limited. And the abortion chain’s own reports and statements show it.
In local news reports, Planned Parenthood officials themselves said the closings were not the result of defunding legislation. In 2016, spokeswoman Melissa Reed said they decided to close three Pennsylvania facilities to reduce costs. Others hinted about declining patient numbers.
But pro-abortion politicians like Wolf receive huge campaign donations from the increasingly political abortion business. And Wolf has returned the favor.
Wolf has close ties to Planned Parenthood and appointed one of the abortion group’s board members as his chief of staff. He also volunteered for the abortion chain as an abortion clinic escort.
