Planned Parenthood’s Positions on 2020 Presidential Candidates
By Jim Sedlak
As an organization dedicated to opposing Planned Parenthood and all its anti-life, anti-God activities, ALL’s STOPP International is, of course, extremely interested in how Planned Parenthood Federation of America—and its 49 affiliates—see politicians for whom we are considering voting.
Planned Parenthood likes Joe Biden
Biden was, for eight years, part of the Obama administration that refused to take a single penny of funding away from Planned Parenthood and even threatened government shutdowns rather than sign legislation removing Planned Parenthood funding. PP says: “During their eight years in office, Biden and Obama worked side by side to thwart attacks on Planned Parenthood. Biden vows to continue standing with Planned Parenthood.”
Planned Parenthood runs the largest abortion chain in the nation. Here’s what the abortion giant says: “Biden says Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court case that affirmed the constitutional right to access abortion, ‘should be the law.’ . . . As president, he will ensure that nominees to our federal courts support Roe and abortion access. . . . Biden stands ready to defend the fundamental rights recognized in Roe v. Wade through federal law—establishing nationwide protections for abortion that can stand, even if the precedent is overturned by the Supreme Court.”
STOPP has frequently documented that Planned Parenthood-style sexuality education leads our children into lives of sexual sin and threatens their immortal souls. Planned Parenthood says: “In a 2007 questionnaire, Biden stated that he supports sex education in schools, particularly [Planned Parenthood-endorsed] sex education that includes science-based methods.”
Planned Parenthood hates Donald Trump
Planned Parenthood says: “Since coming to power, the [Trump] administration has tried to shut down Planned Parenthood in every way possible—in presidential budgets, health care reform bills, tax reform legislation, and federal resolutions and regulations, as well as in nominating anti-Planned Parenthood judges and appointing anti-Planned Parenthood officials.”
The Trump administration enforced the ban on federal funding of abortion by insisting that all Title X recipients must not commit or advocate for abortions. When Planned Parenthood couldn’t get the courts to allow it to do abortions and still get Title X money, it voluntarily withdrew from the program—losing an estimated $60 million in income.
In a recent USA Today article, it was noted: “In a campaign letter sent Sept. 3, Trump promised to, if re-elected, appoint federal judges who would oppose abortion, as well as to ‘fully defund’ health care providers that perform abortions, including Planned Parenthood.”
Planned Parenthood is making it very clear. It sees the reelection of Donald Trump as a threat to its continued existence. It also sees the election of Joe Biden as a return to its heyday under the Obama-Biden administration.
In a recent Vogue magazine article, Alexis McGill Johnson, president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, said: “A Biden/Harris victory could really help move [our] agenda.”
