As if Republicans need any more justification to defund Planned Parenthood – beyond the moral and death issues – consider this simple fact: They spend a tremendous amount of money trying to defeat Republicans.
Media reports indicate that the abortion chain dumped over $1 million into the Democrat’s campaign coffers, and conducted extensive GOTV efforts in an all-out effort to defeat Republican Karen Handel.
In addition to their pathological opposition to Donald Trump, the organization was especially motivated to defeat Handel: She was the valiant pro-Life champion who resigned from the Komen Foundation back in 2012 over its donations to Planned Parenthood. Radical abortion champion Jon Ossoff made quite an issue of Handel’s “opposition” to breast cancer screening. Of course the voters saw through the insanity of such a charge given Handel’s life-long involvement with fundraising for breast cancer treatment.
One close observer of the race, Phil Kent, former editor of the August Chronicle, was quoted in a Newsmax article as arguing that “Planned Parenthood was a big issue in the race and pro-Lifers came out heavily for Karen Handel”.
The special election was a huge victory for the pro-Life movement and compelling evidence that Republicans in Congress need to press forward on keeping their promises to repeal ObamaCare and Defund Planned Parenthood.
Here is an excerpt from a column we posted about Karen Handel back in 2013:
An Interview with Karen Handel
The National Review has posted an interview on its website with Karen Handel, author of Planned Bullyhood and the woman at the center of the Komen-Planned Parenthood fracas of just a year ago.
She recounts in the interview some of the key material from her expose, as well as a powerful rebuttal of the simplistic definition of “women’s health” used by Planned Parenthood to extort millions from the government treasury.
She identifies the close partnership between government, media and the nation’s leading abortion provider – a partnership which has resulted in the death of millions of American babies. (As we run up to the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, it is important to understand how this abortion culture sustains itself through our tax dollars).
