Abortionists' $Millions to Buy Texas Governorship

As the majority of all abortion clinics close in Texas because of recent pro-life legislation, Planned Parenthood has made a business decision to invest at least $3 million in an effort to purchase the governorship for Democrat candidate Wendy Davis who has promised to increase business for the abortion industry in order to meet budgeted quotas.
“While the murder of any unborn child is appalling, even more criminal is the establishment of a target to kill over 1,100 innocent Texas children in order to meet financial targets.”
-- Congressman Bill Flores (R-TX)

-- From "Planned Parenthood plans $3 million Texas campaign" by The Associated Press 7/20/14

The political arm of Planned Parenthood expects to spend $3 million to support Texas Democrats in the 2014 general election, a move that has raised concerns from anti-abortion activists about whether they can match that sort of money in a fight to attract women voters.

Cecile Richards, president of the national advocacy group Planned Parenthood Votes, said the effort aims to draw differences between Democrat Wendy Davis and Republican Greg Abbott, the state attorney general, in the campaign for governor.

Planned Parenthood organizers said they want an aggressive field program to reach more than 300,000 women through phone banks, door-to-door visits, direct mail, social media and radio and online advertising.

Planned Parenthood’s push is similar to its efforts in other states. The group spent nearly $2.5 million in the 2013 Virginia governor’s race, helping a Democrat unseat a Republican, and plans to spend $3 million in a North Carolina U.S. Senate race.

The new PAC, called Planned Parenthood Texas Votes, is intended to bolster the top of the Democratic ticket, along with a slate of state House candidates and the Democrat running for Davis' open Senate seat. The group also endorsed Rep. Sarah Davis, the only Republican who voted against last year's tighter abortion restrictions.

Created just four months ago, the PAC already has more than $1 million cash on hand, mostly through the $1 million donation from Planned Parenthood Chair Cecilia Boone. It's only the third contribution of that amount recorded by any candidate or PAC this election cycle.

The endeavor will be coordinated with a new Texas-based Planned Parenthood 501c4 group, a tax exempt nonprofit that does not have to disclose contributors.

From "Planned Parenthood Has Abortion Quotas, Says Former Clinic Director" by Tristyn Bloom, Daily Caller 7/22/14

Former Planned Parenthood clinic director Abby Johnson says she has proof that a Texas Planned Parenthood clinic had abortion quotas — target numbers of abortions it needed to perform in order to meet its budget.

Johnson, who left the Planned Parenthood clinic in Bryan, Texas in 2010, released a budget statement for the 2010 fiscal year she said shows that the clinic was expected to perform at least 1,135 abortions that year . . . [and] needed to make at least $313.29 per abortion performed.

From "Planned Parenthood Confirms it Gave Clinic Award for Killing More Babies in Abortions" by Steven Ertelt, 7/18/14

“So remember when I posted this photo that we received from a former Planned Parenthood worker? And remember that we said that this was an award for increasing their abortion numbers at the Aurora abortion clinic?” [Abby Johnson] wrote. “Well, Planned Parenthood has responded and has confirmed that, YES, this is an award that was given out by them. And, YES, they will continue to “celebrate their progress and they always will.”

At the Planned Parenthood affiliate web page, the abortion business says:
Political groups with an extreme agenda took to social media this week to claim they’ve found proof that Planned Parenthood has “quotas” for how many abortions the organization should provide. . . . yes, we absolutely do celebrate our progress in ensuring that more people have access to the full range of reproductive health care, including abortion. And we always will.
