Democrats Financed by Planned Parenthood

April 8, 2011

Planned Parenthood spent more than $1 million electing Democrats last cycle

Here’s something to keep in mind as Democrats risk a government  shutdown in order to preserve federal subsidies of Planned Parenthood. From the Center for Responsive Politics:

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.

Planned Parenthood’s political influence efforts hardly stop at lobbying.

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.).
