Pro-Abortion Parties Will Devote $150 Million to the Midterms

A total of $150 million is being invested in the 2022 midterm elections by the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, as well as other big pro-abortion organizations.

PPAF, along with NARAL Pro-Choice America and EMILY’s List, will use the political money to run sponsored advertisements and launch other efforts in nine states.

These states will include Georgia, Nevada, Arizona, Pennsylvania, Michigan, New Hampshire, Wisconsin, Kansas, and California.

The competitive Senate races are taking place in six of the nine states.

A Movement

Pro-life politicians, according to Alexis McGill Johnson, head of Planned Parenthood Action Fund, should take note of the proposal because it serves as “a warning.”

“People are paying attention. Therefore, politicians who are out of touch and getting in the way of our reproductive choice should take note. The public is enraged and will vote you out of office in November,” Johnson expressed in a statement obtained by Politico.

In an assertion, Mini Timmaraju, leader of NARAL, said, “Electing legislators who will vigorously fight for reproductive choice is vital to guarantee we are ready for what comes after that. This is precisely why we will join our collaborators in this vital, unparalleled effort.”

“We are at a watershed point in the history of abortion access. In light of everything that is at risk, we must take aggressive action to elect reproductive freedom advocates up and down the ballot and defeat those who are attempting to undermine our liberties,” she said on Twitter.

In addition, Laphonza Butler, the president of EMILY’s List, said “time to have more pro-choice majorities at all government levels in the country to stop those against abortion from destroying abortion access.”

It comes when the Supreme Court is expected to rule on a Republican-backed, pro-life measure in Mississippi that could overturn the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling.

New Legislatures

Because of the Supreme Court’s decision and the November midterm elections, some Republican-led states have passed new abortion restrictions in recent months.

According to the National Right to Life Committee, Texas enacted a “fetal heartbeat” statute that went into force last year.

At the same time, Oklahoma just passed legislation that attempts to outlaw practically all abortions in the state.

Connecticut, on the other hand, enacted a law last week that would safeguard abortion providers from being barred from providing services in other states.

A bill to make California an “abortion sanctuary” is being considered. This would allow the state to provide abortion treatments to women from other states where abortion is more regulated.

It comes on the heels of Planned Parenthood Action Fund’s (PPAF) 2020 election plans, which saw the organization invest $45 million in pro-abortion friends during the most recent presidential election.

“We are the ones who choose who will be our leaders. It was then that the website for “We Decide 2020” said “we decide our future.”
