Planned Parenthood to Spend $45 Million to Defeat Trump and Flip U.S. Senate

On Wednesday, the political action committee for Planned Parenthood — the nation’s largest abortion provider — announced plans to spend at least $45 million on political campaigns in 2020.

The super PAC Planned Parenthood Votes reportedly has four goals:

  • Defeat President Trump in key battleground states.
  • 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.

According to NPR, Planned Parenthood considers the $45 million “an initial investment.” They hope to raise and spend a lot more money.

Here’s why this matters for Arkansas:

It’s unlikely Planned Parenthood could change the outcome of the presidential race in Arkansas simply by pummeling voters with heavy-handed campaign ads and independent expenditures.

However, they could make a difference in close legislative races.

Planned Parenthood plans to spend record-setting levels of money trying to influence political campaigns next year. It’s possible some of that money will wind up in Arkansas.

In 2018 Planned Parenthood’s political action committee in Arkansas received $10,000 from Planned Parenthood’s main office in New York.

Planned Parenthood’s PAC gave some of that money to candidates running against Rep. Carlton Wing (R – North Little Rock), Rep. Jim Sorvillo (R – Little Rock), Rep. Mark Lowry (R – Maumelle), and Sen. Jason Rapert (R – Conway).

Here’s the good news:

Even abortionists know that abortion’s days are numbered in America. That’s why they’re pouring so much money into defeating pro-life candidates.

States like Arkansas are leading the fight to protect unborn children, and even many liberal pundits agree it’s only a matter of time before the U.S. Supreme Court dismantles the Roe v. Wade ruling.

Pollsters have consistently found voters do not agree with Planned Parenthood’s radical pro-abortion policies.

We are successfully building a culture that values unborn children. But abortionists still plan to put up a fight in 2020.

Planned Parenthood Opening New Abortion Facility in Little Rock

In July Planned Parenthood of the Great Plains announced plans to open a new abortion facility in west Little Rock.

The facility reportedly will be housed in a former foot and ankle clinic in the 1500 block of Aldersgate Road.

It’s sadly ironic that the nation’s largest abortion provider is placing an abortion facility on a road named after the place in England where the Rev. John Wesley had a profound religious awakening before he started the Methodist movement in the 18th century.

Based on legal documents and state reports from 2017, Family Council estimates that Planned Parenthood is responsible for approximately 70% of all chemical abortions in Arkansas.

In May Planned Parenthood of the Great Plains held a fundraiser in Little Rock, where they reportedly raised $115,000.

Planned Parenthood currently has an abortion facility on 12th Street in Little Rock, and that facility reportedly will remain open while the group transitions to the new facility on Aldersgate.

In Fayetteville, Planned Parenthood is searching for a new facility location after the group’s landlord reportedly opted not to renew Planned Parenthood’s lease earlier this year.

As a result, Planned Parenthood has stopped doing abortions in northwest Arkansas for the time being. That’s really good news.

Despite the fact that Planned Parenthood is unveiling a new facility in Little Rock, here’s something important to remember:

Abortion in Arkansas has been in decline for 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.
