Planned Parenthood normally has nothing but good things to say about the politicians that control the purse strings, and that direct millions towards the abortion services business every year, so some Democratic candidates were surprised to be scolded by the organization earlier this week.
The Democrats in question were presidential candidates and the DNC. Planned Parenthood also included CNN in their remarks, which came after the recent presidential debate.
In the immediate aftermath of the debate, Planned Parenthood issued a scolding for both the Democratic National Committee and CNN, live on Twitter:
“Tonight, voters missed an opportunity to hear how Democratic candidates will approach a fundamental issue that impacts their lives,” Planned Parenthood posted. “Candidates spent more than 30 minutes debating health care, but it’s meaningless if we cannot access it.”
Oddly enough, the abortion mill that kills unborn children by the thousands refer to this action as “healthcare.” The complaints did not stop there. Despite all debate participants being Democrats, Planned Parenthood was quick to point fingers at President Trump and pretty much all Republicans as well:
“In nearly 3 hours, there was not one question on abortion access or reproductive health care – despite the fact that the Trump administration is actively trying to dismantle our nation’s program for affordable birth control with a gag rule.”
The mention of the word “Trump” is generally enough to rally the progressive troops on Twitter, and the rule Planned Parenthood mentioned was the recent “Protect Life” Rule. This measure, designed to protect babies from the type of “healthcare” planned parenthood offers, could block up to $60 million worth of funding for abortion providers. This would impact the income and eventually, the advertising dollars the abortion business is able to generate each year.
This proposed regulation applies to the existing Title X, which is a federally funded grant program that offers money for family planning services. The new bill would prohibit the use of funds for abortion.
Planned Parenthood is not entirely correct in their accusations leveled against the DNC and CNN. While they promised to fulfill progressive agendas and pass out the freebies (free day care, free healthcare, free college) and slavery reparations, a few candidates also mentioned what they refer to as “reproductive rights.”
Despite this, major DNC donor Planned Parenthood took to social media to complain. The abortion business called out organizers and said that Americans “deserve to hear about the candidates’ visions for how they will protect and expand access to abortion.”
Planned Parenthood concluded by making it clear that they wanted the DNC and media outlets to comply with their demands in the future:
“We call on the Democratic National Committee and CNN to ensure that efforts to protect abortion access are discussed,” the group finished.
