Planned Parenthood will be pouring a reported $30 million into abortion advocacy through its political arm. This money will be spent on Senate and gubernatorial races in a number of states, and will be used to fund TV and digital ads, direct-mail campaigns, and even advocacy in the public square.
What is appalling isthat an organization that receives taxpayer money from the government is spending $30 million to directly influence state and federal elections. Planned Parenthood ostensibly follows the law regarding this situation since the money is funneled through the affiliated Planned Parenthood Votes before lining the pockets of politicians. At any rate, the IRS has never been known to give the abortion provider trouble the likes of how it specifically targeted conservative political activist organizations by withholding tax-exempt status.
Do you think Planned Parenthood should be able to buy elected officials with taxpayer money?
