Report Says Planned Parenthood Funneled Almost $2 Million to Virginia Governor

Kirsters Baish| Planned Parenthood was 100% behind Ralph Northam when he launched his campaign for the position of Governor of Virginia in 2017.

“It’s really clear that Virginians want and need a fierce champion like Dr. Northam to stand up for them and to stand up for women’s health,” Jennifer Allen, Planned Parenthood Virginia PAC and Planned Parenthood Advocates of Virginia’s chief executive, stated when she publicly announced that those who support abortion would dish out as much as $3 million in order to elect Northam, reported The Washington Post at the time.

Planned Parenthood also showed praise to Northam for having taken “bold actions” in order to support abortion.

When all was said and done, Planned Parenthood funneled $1.99 million into the Democrat’s campaign, The Virginia Public Access Project reports.

While the campaign was going on, a spokesman for Republican Ed Gillespie named David Abrams said that Northam had “extreme positions supporting abortions in the eighth or ninth month.”

Western Journal reports that the Democrat’s support for abortion has made headlines again this week, “after the governor issued a statement that appeared to endorse infanticide. Northam was speaking on WTOP’s  ‘Ask The Governor,’ after a Democrat in the Virginia House of Delegates introduced a bill that would legalize abortion up until the moment of birth”

“So in this particular example if a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen, the infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother,” Northam said when speaking to WTOP.

Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse’s response was nothing short of ruthless.

“This is morally repugnant,” he said in a statement to the National Review. “In just a few years pro-abortion zealots went from ‘safe, legal, and rare’ to ‘keep the newborns comfortable while the doctor debates infanticide.’ I don’t care what party you’re from — if you can’t say that it’s wrong to leave babies to die after birth, get the hell out of public office.”

Others gave their responses via Twitter.

Northam continues to insist that he said nothing wrong.

“I have devoted my life to caring for children and any insinuation otherwise is shameful and disgusting,” he wrote in a tweet.
