77) Bill Clinton / Planned Parenthood [alt link]


Clinton Foundation’s partnership with Planned Parenthood promotes abortion worldwide

Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards said in a recent interview that she finds it “exciting” to hear women tell their abortion stories. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and her running mate Tim Kaine also recently said they “trust women,” and that’s why they support abortion on demand and funded by taxpayers.

Clinton’s relationship with Planned Parenthood goes beyond a shared belief in a woman’s right to choose. The group is interwoven with a network of women’s organizations that are among her strongest backers, and Planned Parenthood leaders and activists are among her personal friends, including President Cecile Richards.

Planned Parenthood Votes

Type: super PAC

Planned Parenthood’s super PAC is working in conjunction with the Priorities USA Action super PAC. Last month, for example, they jointly released an online advertisement costing “five figures” targeting Donald Trump. Much of Planned Parenthood Votes’ recent presidential advocacy efforts have focused on online ads and phone calls promoting Clinton or attacking Republican presidential candidates, federal disclosures indicate.

Entering March, Planned Parenthood Votes reported having more than $3.3 million on hand. Top donors this year include the son of billionaire financier George Soros, Jonathan Soros ($1 million), and hedge fund manager Larry Lebowitz ($250,000).

Clinton has been a longtime supporter of Planned Parenthood. Last year the group awarded Clinton its highest honor, the PPFA Margaret Sanger Award, named after its founder.
