Pro-lifer with hatWhile the midterm federal elections are still several months away, voters who consider themselves conservative and/or pro-life are being encouraged to organize now to offset big money being poured into the election by the nation's largest abortion provider.

Planned Parenthood has formed a coalition with left-leaning "progressive" organizations to spend $30 million across the country to force pro-life elected officials out of office in order to usher in those who will fight to protect and expand abortion. The abortion giant – with the backing of groups like the Center for Community Change Action, Color Of Change PAC, and the Service Employees International Union – reportedly plans to use the money to fund direct mail, phone banks, and other operations to target "infrequent voters" in Michigan, Florida, and Nevada.

Kelly Marcum, a legislative assistant with Family Research Council, explains that the government funds Planned Parenthood to the tune of over a half billion dollars a year – and that spending that money on elections is illegal. However ...

"The fact that this non-profit is getting $540 million [annually] and then turning around and having a related PAC [suggests] it's basically subsidizing political [activity]," she tells OneNewsNow. "The money's fungible, so we can't claim any knowledge of where that money goes – but regardless, that money is subsidizing Planned Parenthood so that it can turn around and use its own funds to dump $30 million into campaigning."

That's about the same amount Planned Parenthood poured into the failed 2016 election campaign of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Another factor that's on the line in the election, Marcum adds, is that Planned Parenthood commits 321,000 abortions a year. "And we need to elect Congress members who are going to put a stop to the funding of Planned Parenthood, who are going to stand for pro-life values and in Congress," she says. "And so ... we encourage people to get out and get involved."

Marcum's comments suggest that the millions of dollars that Planned Parenthood pumps into the election can be thwarted with a strong conservative, pro-life turnout – as occurred in the 2016 presidential election.
