Planned Parenthood and The 2020 Election
It’s no secret that Planned Parenthood is one of the most aggressively pro-abortion organizations in the world. Planned Parenthood is a well-known non-profit organization that consists of 159 medical and non-medical affiliates, which operate over 600 health clinics in the U.S. It partners with organizations in 12 countries globally. Planned Parenthood is also one of the largest abortion providers in the United States.
By their own numbers, Planned Parenthood performed 332,757 abortions in 2018. That’s the intentional termination of over 300,000 human unborn babies. The real agenda of Planned Parenthood is a silent holocaust on the unborn, and Christians need to be aware of this.
Now we learn from National Public Radio, the following about the future political agenda of Planned Parenthood: “With Abortion Rights on the Line, Planned Parenthood Announces 2020 Push.” Sarah McCammon reports for NPR, “Planned Parenthood plans to spend at least $45 million backing candidates in local, state and national races who support abortion rights.” That’s $45 million. That makes Planned Parenthood and its political action arm one of the wealthiest and now most deployed political action groups in America today.
Planned Parenthood has been devoting big money to this end for years. In 2016 and 2018 spending about $30 million each year—that’s a big jump from $30 million to $45 million. That increase indicates the intensity with which Planned Parenthood is intending to engage the 2020 election cycle.
So, make no mistake, Planned Parenthood is deeply involved in the political process because they have a great deal at stake. They want to see candidates elected who are in full support of abortion rights at any stage of pregnancy and they’ll settle for nothing less.
In particular, Planned Parenthood will be funneling resources to nine states that are considered “must wins” for pro-abortion Presidential candidates in the 2020 election. These states include: Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Michigan, Minnesota, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Residents of those states should brace themselves for a massive political effort and one funded by Planned Parenthood. Christians need to be aware, and pray accordingly.
