Planned Parenthood Action Fund and Planned Parenthood Votes can raise buckets of money, no doubt about it.

But its innumerable supporters in the media act not only as megaphones for whatever line it is PPFA wants advanced, they also attempt to act as a force suppressant. That is, they paint PPFA as if it is an irresistible invading army so powerful pro-lifers ought to just give up.

Reporter Tim Dickinson’s task begins by telling readers that this year’s output will make the previous outlays of the political arms of the largest abortion provider pale in comparison. So big, in fact, so buoyed with volunteers (they tell us they are going to reach three million voters in six states), that it “could tip the balance in as many as half-a-dozen swing states.”

No one ever said PPFA is modest.

But after rolling out the statistics, Dickinson shifts to the real purpose of his article: to paint Donald Trump and Mike Pence as “extremists” on abortion. That’s rich coming from an organization that performs over 300,000 abortions a year, takes in a half-billion from the federal government, and traffics in baby body parts.
