According to a report from the Associated Press, abortion mill entity Planned Parenthood is slated to spend a record $50 million ahead of the November midterms in an effort to boost pro-abortion candidates.
Unsurprisingly, the Associated Press engaged in the semantical uplifting of Planned Parenthood’s services, referring to the abortion mill as “the nation’s leading reproductive health care provider,” despite the report highlighting how Planned Parenthood is gearing up to spend millions on messaging revolving around terminating life in the womb which is antithetical to “health care.”
Planned Parenthood has even launched a website in this effort called TakeControl2022, which explicitly notes that the entity is going to bolster candidates they feel would support abortion.
“Planned Parenthood advocacy and political organizations are fighting for full reproductive freedom for all — and launching our largest-ever midterm electoral program in support of candidates up and down the ballot across the country who champion our right to reproductive freedom. Together, we need to take control — by electing leaders at all levels of government who will protect our right to make our own health care decisions.”
What’s interesting in this messaging from Planned Parenthood is where they explicitly note their “support of candidates up and down the ballot,” meaning they’re engaged in partisan political activity.
For the sake of clarity, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization is strictly prohibited from doing the aforementioned, which Planned Parenthood happens to be one.
According to the IRS code regarding 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations and “political campaign intervention,” it reads that “public statements of position (verbal or written) made on behalf of the organization in favor of or in opposition to any candidate for public office clearly violate the prohibition against political campaign activity.”
Of course, Planned Parenthood is engaged in sort of a legal loophole that allows them to get away with these political activities via having Planned Parenthood Federation of America being their 501(c)(3) and operating a separate entity called Planned Parenthood Action Fund which is a 501(c)(4) organization.
As explained by True Tamplin in an article for Finance Strategists, the key difference between a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization and a 501(c)(4) organization is that the latter is defined as “a social welfare group with more freedom to lobby.”
In short, despite Planned Parenthood being a tax-exempt organization that is prohibited from the very activity they’re engaged in, they’ve shielded themselves with a 501(c)(4) layer to allow them to forward the agenda of the non-profit side of the business.
Jenny Lawson, the executive director of Planned Parenthood Votes, issued a statement about their meddling in the midterms, saying, “Who wins in these midterm elections will determine whether a state has access to abortion and potentially determine whether we will face a national abortion ban.”
The $50 million being allocated by Planned Parenthood will target voters in states like Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin in hopes that voters in said states will get pro-abortion candidates elected into office so that Planned Parenthood can continue their abortion mills unfettered.
