Planned Parenthood to Spend $50 Million on Midterms

Breaking its previous spending record of $45 million during the 2020 election cycle, Planned Parenthood has announced plans to spend $50 million to promote pro-abortion candidates and policies before the 2022 midterms.

According to the Associated Press, Planned Parenthood will be focusing its efforts on voters in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.

Pro-abortion organizations outspent pro-life ones by over $1 million in Kansas before voters rejected Kansas's "Value Them Both" amendment. With this spending, these organizations tried to convince voters that the amendment would ban abortion outright rather than clarify that the state constitution did not contain a right to abortion. If Kansas legislators wanted to pass an outright abortion ban, they would need to push additional legislation. Increased spending from Planned Parenthood will likely be used to mislead voters again.
