Planned Parenthood is panicking over the U.S. Supreme Court and the future of abortion on demand.
“Our constitutional right to abortion is seriously at risk,” said Dawn Laguens, vice president of the abortion chain, in an email to supporters Tuesday.
Laguens portrayed President Donald Trump and his Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh as women haters because of their conservative stance and opinions against Planned Parenthood’s radical pro-abortion agenda.
On Monday, Trump chose Kavanaugh to fill moderate Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy’s seat. If confirmed, Kavanaugh could swing the court to a conservative majority and be a deciding opinion on vital issues like abortion restrictions and Roe v. Wade.
Kavanaugh has served on the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for D.C. for more than a decade, where he developed an extensive record of protecting religious liberty and enforcing restrictions on abortion. Pro-life leaders believe he would do the same on the Supreme Court.
Planned Parenthood spurred its supporters to action Tuesday, warning:
Brett Kavanaugh has a dangerous track record of trying to block women from getting access to birth control and abortion care. Just last year, he ruled to block an undocumented woman who recently entered the United States from obtaining an abortion. He also ruled in favor of bosses denying their employees birth control coverage based on their personal religious objections.
Now, President Trump wants Kavanaugh’s extreme views on the Supreme Court. Based on this record, we can safely assume that he will make good on Trump’s promise to only appoint justices who will overturn Roe v. Wade. We must stop Kavanaugh — this is a fight we can’t afford to lose.
The largest abortion group in America, Planned Parenthood aborts approximately 320,000 unborn babies every year. Abortion is a huge money-maker for the non-profit. Its most recent annual report showed a record income of $1.46 billion, with about half a billion dollars coming from taxpayers.
Planned Parenthood urged abortion activists to call their U.S. Senators and tell them to oppose Kavanaugh’s confirmation. If confirmed, he could be a deciding opinion on the future of Planned Parenthood’s taxpayer funding and its business aborting unborn babies.
“The Supreme Court is the last line of defense against ideologues who are determined to see a national ban on safe, legal abortion …” Laguens said.
National pro-life leaders have expressed high hopes for Kavanaugh and the future of unborn babies’ rights. They praised his excellent record of protecting life and religious liberty.
In a recent, high-profile case, Kavanaugh agreed with the Trump administration that the government should not have to help facilitate abortions for illegal immigrant minors. He also ruled against the Obamacare HHS mandate that forced Hobby Lobby, Little Sisters of the Poor and other Christian-run businesses and organizations to fund drugs that may cause abortions in their employee health care plans. He recently upheld religious free speech in a case involving the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (the Metro) as well.
