Planned Parenthood Plans to Spend $45 Million to Elect Pro-Abortion Candidates in 2020

Planned Parenthood, an organization that admits receiving 37% of its overall revenue from taxpayer funding in its 2017-2018 annual report, revealed to CBS reporter Kate Smith that it plans to spend record amounts in 2020 to support pro-abortion candidates.

Smith reported this move is “the biggest electoral effort in its history: a $45 million spend to support presidential, congressional and state-level candidates in the 2020 elections who support abortion rights.”

The abortion corporation wants to stop the recent influx of abortion regulations from states around the country and maintain the role of other states (like Illinois) as abortion havens for women who cannot access abortion in their own states. Smith explained Planned Parenthood's reasoning further:
"There is so much at stake if you are an abortion rights activist. I mean, last year, you saw an unprecedented number of abortion restrictions and bans across the country. This is not just the south and Midwest we’re talking about. I think there was 38 different states introduced at least some of these restrictions. They are really leaving no stone unturned. Every single state they are looking at, and how can they either find candidates that are less hostile toward abortion rights, or in some cases, finding candidates that are particularly open to reproductive health. For example, I spoke to a volunteer activist in Colorado. She was telling me that Colorado, their Planned Parenthood affiliates see patients from 38 different states."
