Planned Parenthood Spent More Than $1 Million to Elect Democrats in 2010
It’s a good thing you’re funding them.
Planned Parenthood spent more than a million dollars last year to get democrats elected.
Here’s something to keep in mind as Democrats risk a government shutdown in order to preserve federal subsidies of Planned Parenthood. From the Center for Responsive Politics:
In 2010, Planned Parenthood and a California affiliate together spent more than $700,000 on federal lobbying efforts, a Center for Responsive Politics analysis of federal lobbying records finds. By comparison, all other organizations that primarily advocate for abortion rights collectively spent $247,280 on federal lobbying efforts during the same period, according to the Center’s research.
Planned Parenthood’s political influence efforts hardly stop at lobbying.
The organization’s political action committee, for example, donated more than $148,000 to federal candidates — almost all Democrats — during the 2010 election cycle. The PAC spent more than $443,000 overall.
Republicans voted to strip the abortion group from receiving $363 million in taxpayer funds but senate democrats put it back in the budget. It’s like taking your money to fund their campaigns.
