Open Secret: Planned Parenthood turns tax dollars into donations to Democrats

Just like the government workers' unions, only more offensive.

In 2010, Planned Parenthood and a California affiliate together spent more than $700,000 on federal lobbying efforts, a Center for Responsive Politics analysis of federal lobbying records finds. By comparison, all other organizations that primarily advocate for abortion rights collectively spent $247,280 on federal lobbying efforts during the same period, according to the Center's research. ...

The organization's political action committee, for example, donated more than $148,000 to federal candidates -- almost all Democrats -- during the 2010 election cycle. The PAC spent more than $443,000 overall.

Planned Parenthood also recorded $905,796 in independent expenditures during the 2010 cycle -- money spent in support of, or in opposition to, federal political candidates, largely through advertisements. The top beneficiaries of this money were Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) and Patty Murray (D-Wash.).

When Chuckles the Sockpuppet Schumer says Democrats will "never, never, never" vote to defund Planned Parenthood, he's not kidding. But their intransigence has nothing to do with anyone's physical health. It has everything to do with the Democrats' political health. They would be voting to cut off their own campaign cash, pried from the hands of taxpayers.
