While Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards proclaimed to an Ohio crowd on Wednesday that it is an “exciting thing” to hear women “tell their abortion stories” to help promote the procedure, the abortion giant also announced it is launching a $30 million army to storm the country campaigning for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
No longer content with the messaging that abortion advocates want to keep the lethal procedure “safe, legal and rare,” Richards and Clinton are now pushing the Democratic Party’s movement that is vying to normalize abortion across America by promoting extremist pro-abortion activism.
Richards is looking to forward the movement through story-telling campaigns propagating the idea that killing preborn children is a good, normal and necessary practice that must be administered so that women are freed to succeed.
“For too many years, certainly for my generation, all issues about sex and sexuality were stigmatized,” Richards told the Daily Iowan on Wednesday. “Abortion was, homosexuality was – and the exciting thing to me now is that young people are telling their stories and they are living out loud.”
Part of Richards campaign now is urging women to come out of the closet and proudly share about their abortions – much like the homosexual agenda encourages those who engage in homosexual behavior to speak up for the LGBT community. She is attempting to make both sound as if abortion and LGBT activists are part of a civil rights movement.
“More women are telling their abortion stories, and I told mine,” Richards declared. “I think once we get out of the shadows – and I think the LGBT movement has led the way in this – it normalizes what should be an open and honest conversation.”
Some critics have argued how the promotion of abortion and homosexuality are the ultimate tools for those behind population control.
Tag-teaming for abortion extremism
Spreading these stories is not the only way Richards and the Democratic White House hopeful are looking to promote abortion-on-demand, along with late-term abortions, across America.
“Clinton, Richards and other abortion supporters not only want Americans to accept abortion on demand, they also want taxpayers to pay for them,” Life News reports. “Abortion activists are working hard to repeal the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits direct taxpayer funding for abortions in Medicaid. Clinton promised that she would work to repeal Hyde if elected.”
Another abortion agenda item that Richards is pushing is to make sure the next president has the power to nominate judges to the United States Supreme Court (SCOTUS) who champion abortion. She recognizes that, if elected, Clinton could potentially have the authority to nominate up to four pro-abortion judges to the highest court of the land – a move that could greatly alter rulings on America’s abortion law for decades to come.
Richards is fearful of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump harnessing the power to nominate pro-life SCOTUS judges – as he has promised to do if elected – especially with the lifelong pro-life activist, Mike Pence, at his side as his running mate.
“I think one of the biggest things that’s on the line is actually Roe vs. Wade and the Supreme Court,” Richards added, while speaking with the Midwest paper. “Donald Trump and Mike Pence have said they would appoint justices that would overturn Roe. Mike Pence has a very long career of trying to end safe and legal abortion and Donald Trump has said we should punish women who’ve had abortions, and of course they’ve come out to completely defund Planned Parenthood – which means that millions of folks who count on us for healthcare through public programs could no longer come to Planned Parenthood for preventive care like cancer screenings and family planning. So those issues are certainly on the ballot.”
On the opposite end, Clinton vowed to abortion activists that if she is elected, she will appoint SCOTUS judges who will not only work to uphold the infamous 1973 landmark Roe v. Wade decision as the law of the land, but that she will also fight for abortion on demand – clear up to a baby’s birth.
Mobilizing a $30M abortion army
In order to intensify efforts to support Clinton’s pro-abortion campaign, Planned Parenthood is going above and beyond just endorsing her – it is putting together and mobilizing a $30 million army to persuade Americans across the country to vote for the former first lady.
The amount of Planned Parenthood’s paid staff for its pro-Clinton crusade is so great that it is actually larger than all of the nearly 800 paid staff members on Clinton’s own campaign. An iconic Left-leaning American magazine shares more about the grand scale of the enterprise launched by the world’s largest abortion provider:
“Planned Parenthood is mounting one of the largest door-to-door field campaigns of the 2016 election, working to persuade millions of voters to defeat the extremist, anti-abortion ticket of Donald Trump and Mike Pence,” Rolling Stone announced in a recent article. “Its army of hundreds of paid staff and thousands of volunteers could tip the balance in as many as half-a-dozen swing states, where the Trump campaign barely counts field offices, much less a sophisticated ground game.”
Planned Parenthood has the money and persuasion
Boasting twice the budget of Planned Parenthood’s largest previous field effort back in 2012, the abortion giant is targeting its reach to touch 3 million voters across six states – Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
“Access to safe and legal abortion and access to reproductive health care is on the ballot this year like never before,” Planned Parenthood Action Fund Executive Director Deirdre Schifeling told Rolling Stone.
Schifeling is counting on pro-life voters sitting this election out because their preferred candidates have dropped out, but she is making sure that pro-abortion voters don’t resort to such self-destructive behavior so that abortion-championing justices are stocked up in the Supreme Court.
“Donald Trump wants to overturn Roe, and appoint Supreme Court justices who will do that,” Schifeling continued. “He has said that he would like to punish women who have abortions. And he’s picked, as vice presidential candidate, Mike Pence – a man who has made it his life’s mission to do exactly those things. We are taking that very seriously.”
Helping fund Planned Parenthood’s $30 million is a $3.5 million donation from progressive billionaire George Soros and his extended family, which is making the enormous campaign of 800 paid staff – along with 3,500 volunteers – in the quest to persuade as many Americans as possible to vote for Clinton’s pro-abortion ticket.
It is contended that if pro-life advocates stand back as Planned Parenthood and the Clinton campaign move forward, abortion will continue its assault on the preborn and watch 59 million abortions take place over the next 43 years, according to Life News.
Planned Parenthood is quite confident that its aggressive plan will leave its mark this presidential election.
“We are running the largest persuasion canvas in the country on the independent side, to give you a sense of scale,” Schifeling asserts.
