Planned Parenthood Puts Its Mouth Where Its Money is this Election

The abortion industry has gone all in this election.  Big abortion knows that its bottom line is directly connected to the politics of abortion.

Elect pro-abortion candidates who will deregulate dangerous abortion practices and their bottom line goes up.  Elect pro-life candidates who will place even the most commonsense limitations on abortion and enact reforms to protect women and their bottom line goes down.

So the abortion industry is putting its mouth where its money is.

As Politico reports:

Supporters of Planned Parenthood’s political affiliates have knocked on 2 million doors and made a million calls for Democratic candidates this election cycle, the group announced Monday.

Planned Parenthood Action Fund and Planned Parenthood Votes have been active on behalf of vulnerable incumbents including [mc_name name=’Sen. Kay Hagan (D-NC)’ chamber=’senate’ mcid=’H001049′ ] (D-N.C.), and will have thousands of workers on the ground to get out the vote on Tuesday, they said.

Control of the Senate hangs in the balance today with nearly 10 races projected too close to call as millions of Americans head to the polls.  Planned Parenthood – the largest, most profitable abortion business in America – knows that control of the Senate will directly affect its cash cow – abortion.

A pro-abortion Senate majority means that pro-life laws will continue to be stifled and radical pro-abortion appointees of the Obama Administration will continue to sail through unchecked.

And it’s not just the Senate, the abortion industry has been pouring money into key governors races and ballot initiatives.  NARAL ran this outlandish ad saying that pro-life candidates would ban condoms.  In Tennessee, pro-abortion extremists are desperately trying to defeat pro-life Amendment 1 (which would overturn a near total ban on abortion regulations) and keep that state the “abortion capital of the Bible belt.”

The word “abortion” may not appear on your ballot, but your vote will have an impact on the unborn.

Just one more thing to keep in mind as you head to the polls today.  Elections have consequences.
