Why Mitch McConnell Won’t Fight Planned Parenthood

Mitch_McConnell_3Here’s some information from the Senate Conservatives Fund that you won’t hear about from the “mainstream” media…or in any GOP leadership fundraising letters, either.  It rather reminds me of the so-called “pro-life” Mike Rounds …who vetoed South Dakota’s first attempt to ban abortion.

RINOs can blah blah blah all they want. The proof is in the pudding.  Look at their records, and you’ll find where their real allegiances lie.

Looking at the real records of “Republican” Party leaders will also reveal why the poison of liberalism is rolling over this great nation like a Nazi blitzkrieg. “Leaders” who won’t fight (and often aide the enemy) don’t win many battles for what is supposed to be “their side.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) wants you to think he opposes the effort to defund Planned Parenthood in the continuing resolution (CR) because it could cause a government shutdown.

He also wants you to think it’s because he doesn’t have 60 votes in the Senate when in fact it only takes 41 votes to filibuster funding for the organization.

But the real reason he won’t fight is that he doesn’t really care about stopping funding for Planned Parenthood, and he never has.

Here are the facts that he doesn’t want you to know:

(1) In 1992, Mitch McConnell voted to allow taxpayer-funded research using body parts from aborted babies.

Roll Call Vote #263, 10/2/92

This policy, which was vetoed by President George H. W. Bush but later signed into law by President Bill Clinton, had the effect of making abortion even more profitable for Planned Parenthood.

(2) Also in 1992, Mitch McConnell voted to overturn the so-called “Reagan Rule” that prohibited Planned Parenthood from using taxpayer dollars for pro-abortion counseling.

Roll Call Vote #254, 10/1/92

Mitch McConnell ‘s vote in this case was to override President Bush’s veto, but the House sustained it. Then, in 1993, President Clinton overturned the “Reagan Rule” by Executive Order on the first day of his administration.

(3) In 1997, Mitch McConnell again voted against a targeted ban on federal funding for research on body parts from abortions.

Roll Call Vote #215, 9/4/97

This time, Mitch McConnell was one of 14 liberal Republicans who voted to allow taxpayer-funded research on body parts from abortions.

In the these three examples, Mitch McConnell crossed the then-current Republican president and many of his Republican colleagues in the Senate to open the door for taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood and for research on body parts from aborted babies.

(4) Mitch McConnell has voted for at least 15 bills that provided funding for Planned Parenthood dating back to 1998.

This is important because it shows how long Senator Mitch McConnell has tolerated this funding and refused to do anything meaningful to stop it.

Senator Mitch McConnell says defunding Planned Parenthood has to wait until Republicans control the White House, but at least five of his past votes to fund it were when Republicans controlled the House, Senate, and White House.

Here’s the bottom line:

Senator Mitch McConnell isn’t 100% pro-life. He has repeatedly voted to force American taxpayers to fund Planned Parenthood, its pro-abortion counseling, and research on the babies it aborts.

If you’ve seen the chilling undercover videos of Planned Parenthood officials and wonder how this could happen, Senator Mitch McConnell ‘s support for these policies has a lot to do with it.

He wants you to think he’s surrendering because his hands are tied, but it’s really because he supports funding for the abortion industry.

Please call the Senate Republicans an urge them to oppose the CR that funds Planned Parenthood.

Tell them to stand up to Senator Mitch McConnell . If he wants to fund Planned Parenthood, he should be forced to do it alone.

Thank you for standing strong for freedom. We value your efforts.
