Planned Parenthood Endorses Two Candidates in Arkansas

On Wednesday, Planned Parenthood Action Fund’s acting president, Alexis McGill Johnson, announced the organization is officially endorsing two candidates in Arkansas: Second Congressional District candidate Joyce Elliott and Third Congressional District candidate Celeste Williams.

In Arkansas, Planned Parenthood’s political action committee has been actively fundraising this year, and the organization already has endorsed candidates for the state legislature.

Last fall Planned Parenthood’s super PAC pledged to spend at least $45 million on the 2020 election, with four main goals:

  • Defeat President Trump
  • Flip the U.S. Senate from Republican to Democrat
  • Maintain Democratic control over the U.S. House of Representatives
  • Support liberal candidates in state races

“Price is Right” Donates Almost $100K to Planned Parenthood

On Monday longtime game show The Price is Right aired a special prime time episode, during which it was announced that the show would donate money to Planned Parenthood, the nation’s leading abortion provider.

Fox News writes,

The longest-running game show in television history aired Monday evening with regular host Drew Carey joined by Emmy-winning host of “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” RuPaul. The famous drag queen was on hand to help raise money for charity, with the show promising to match all the contestants’ prize winnings with a donation to Planned Parenthood.

Contestants won big during the special, totaling $97,266 in prizes. This meant that the same dollar amount is now going to the organization [Planned Parenthood] as a charitable donation.

Approximately one-third or more of all abortions takes place in a Planned Parenthood facility.

In Arkansas, Planned Parenthood performs hundreds of drug-induced abortions every year, and the organization recently opened a brand new facility in west Little Rock while its Fayetteville facility remains closed amid relocation efforts.

Despite all of this, here’s something important to remember:

Abortion in Arkansas has declined significantly in the past 20 years.

In 2018, Arkansas’ abortion numbers hit a 42-year low, and public opinion polling shows most Arkansans believe abortion ought to be completely illegal or legal only under certain circumstances.

Slowly but surely, we’re winning the fight to protect innocent human life in Arkansas.
