Planned Parenthood Will Spend $150 Million Funding Radically Pro-Abortion Candidates

“No one can be neutral” on abortion, and that is why Planned Parenthood plans to spend $150 million to convince people to vote pro-abortion, CEO Alexis McGill Johnson revealed in an interview with The Guardian this week.

Johnson said electing pro-abortion candidates is one of her top priorities now that the U.S. Supreme Court has overturned Roe v. Wade.

For decades, Planned Parenthood relied on Roe and the courts to uphold its billion-dollar abortion business. But on June 24, in a historic victory for life, the Supreme Court overturned its 1973 abortion ruling and began allowing states to protect unborn babies from abortion again. So far, 13 states have banned abortions, and as many as 13 more are expected to in the weeks and months ahead.

Now, Johnson and Planned Parenthood need to switch their strategy toward convincing Americans that they must vote for pro-abortion politicians.

“No one can be neutral in this moment,” Johnson told the Guardian.

“Our job now is making sure all of these politicians who are completely out of step – that people understand where every single state [representative] stands on this issue so they can start to build power in the state,” she continued. “We’re going to make every candidate – whether they’re applying for school board or state supreme court, or governor – reflect on where they are on this decision.”


According to the report, Planned Parenthood plans to spend $150 million on the upcoming elections.

Despite its wealth and political power, the abortion chain faces an uphill battle. Polls consistently show that Americans reject its radical pro-abortion agenda and support legal protections for unborn babies.

A new poll this week from Harvard University and Harris polling found that 37 percent of Americans would ban abortions with only rape and incest exceptions, while 49 percent support a heartbeat law banning abortions after six weeks, and 72 percent support banning abortions after 15 weeks.

LifeNews highlighted 14 other recent polls here.

In contrast, Planned Parenthood is lobbying Congress to pass a bill that would “codify” Roe and force states to legalize taxpayer-funded abortion on demand again.

Meanwhile, the abortion chain also is continuing with its old strategy of challenging pro-life laws in court. Working with other pro-abortion groups, the abortion chain has filed 11 lawsuits to block state abortion bans, according to the report. Their hope is that, through these lawsuits, activist judges will find a “right” to abortion in their state constitutions, as some already have done.

Interestingly, while talking about another one of her goals: to help women travel for abortions, Johnson admitted that pro-life state laws do stop abortions. And tens of thousands of unborn babies’ lives will be saved every year.

“The reality is there’s no world in which 24 states can absorb the nation’s abortion care,” Johnson said. “The intent … of the opposition has been to end access to abortion.”

Here’s more from the report:

Planned Parenthood is fortifying “logistics centers” and “provider corps” of doctors, so there is capacity at “surge sites” to take care of patients in states that protect abortion. Patient “navigators” will connect women to charities to help pay for both abortions and the costs of a long journey: gas, airfare and hotel stays. McGill Johnson’s hope is, eventually, to help build out a kind of online travel agency to access abortion. …

Even with the vast logistical operation McGill Johnson has in mind, she acknowledges tens of thousands of women a year will never reach these resources, and be forced to bear unwanted children.

Amid all the talk about resources and “care” for women, Johnson never mentioned providing support to these mothers and babies.

Though Planned Parenthood brags about being a trusted women’s healthcare provider and reports billion-dollar revenues in its annual reports, Johnson said nothing about using her organization’s vast resources to provide prenatal care and postpartum care, diapers and cribs, financial aid for housing and childcare, breastfeeding and parenting classes, and more to these mothers who will not get abortions.

Johnson is not neutral on abortion. She is pro-abortion, and that is the “solution” that her organization provides — aborting more than 350,000 unborn babies every year.

Americans do not want more abortions. They want support for mothers and babies in need so that no mother ever feels like she needs to abort her baby to survive. This is what the pro-life movement has been doing for decades and continues to work to expand as more states ban abortions and more mothers recognize that they do not need to kill their own unborn children to thrive.
