The abortion giant Planned Parenthood sent out a desperate appeal for donations Thursday in an attempt to stop U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh from being confirmed.
Dawn Laguens, vice president of Planned Parenthood, called on abortion activists to continue showing an “outpouring of rage” against President Donald Trump’s second nominee.
“The outpouring of rage from people like you has already made Kavanaugh the least-popular Supreme Court nominee in history,” Laguens said in the fundraising letter. “Now, in this critical moment, we need to step up even more to put a stop to his nomination once and for all.”
Planned Parenthood and the rest of the abortion industry have labeled Kavanaugh a “serious threat” to “women’s right” to abortion, while national pro-life leaders have expressed high hopes for Kavanaugh and the future of unborn babies’ rights.
Kavanaugh would make the fifth conservative justice on the high court. A conservative majority could uphold abortion restrictions or even overturn Roe v. Wade.
Fearing this, Laguens wrote:
“Overturning Roe would turn back the clock to a time when people who needed abortions were forced to turn to illegal and unsafe procedures — often with fatal consequences. In too many states already, accessing abortion is nearly impossible, especially for people of color or those with low incomes. We cannot let Kavanaugh and Trump make it legal to deny anyone a right we’ve fought so hard to win.”
But keeping Roe in place is what really has led to massive fatalities. Since 1973, about 60 million unborn babies and hundreds of women have been killed in legal abortions.
Planned Parenthood already has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to pressure several swing-vote senators to oppose Kavanaugh, and it likely will spend more before the Senate votes on his confirmation this fall.
Senate hearings on his confirmation began this week with repeated interruptions by protesters. Several prominent abortion activists were among the 70 protesters arrested Tuesday during the opening hearings, according to the AP. Among them were Women’s March leader Linda Sarsour, Alison Dreith of NARAL Pro-Choice Missouri, actress Piper Perabo, #VOTEPROCHOICE co-founder Heidi Sieck and UltraViolet Executive Director Shaunna Thomas, The Cut reports.
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 is the largest abortion business in America, aborting approximately 320,000 unborn babies every year. Its most recent annual report showed a record income of $1.46 billion, with about half a billion dollars coming from taxpayers.
