Buying votes, are we?

The abortion conglomerate has announced its plan to spend at least $45 million on political races this election cycle. Jim Sedlak of the American Life League (ALL) tells OneNewsNow any non-profit group can spend up to five percent of its income on lobbying and the like.

"Planned Parenthood, whose income is $1.6 billion, five percent of that is some $80 million. So legally they can spend $80 million on lobbying, but they can't spend it on endorsing candidates," Sedlak explains.

So what Planned Parenthood is doing is shuffling $45 million into a "separate" group called Planned Parenthood Action, which can endorse candidates.

Sedlak, Jim (American Life League)"Planned Parenthood is buying votes to keep getting government money," Sedlak asserts. "It is absolutely outrageous. You can see what's going on in Congress right now. Planned Parenthood has the entire Democratic Party in Washington, D.C. stacked against the babies, against life."

Abortion is the biggest money-maker for Planned Parenthood, so Sedlak contends the financial shell game ought to be abolished by law. He suggests one thing people can do in response is to make sure they vote for pro-life candidates who will take appropriate action.
