While complaining about needing millions of taxpayer funding to help patients, the abortion chain Planned Parenthood is spending $3 million to back a pro-abortion candidate for Virginia governor.
The Washington Post reports the Planned Parenthood affiliate in Virginia is supporting Democrat Ralph Northam, a strong ally of the abortion industry.
A spokesman for pro-life opponent Republican Ed Gillespie said Northam has an “extreme” abortion position and supports the abortions of unborn babies “in the eighth or ninth month.”
Virginia Planned Parenthood spokeswoman Jennifer Allen called Northam a “champion” for supporting abortion on demand. He currently is the lieutenant governor of Virginia. The abortion group’s Virginia PAC endorsed Northam on Thursday.
“It’s really clear that Virginians want and need a fierce champion like Dr. Northam to stand up for them and to stand up for women’s health,” Allen said.
The abortion chain plans to spend $3 million to support the pro-abortion candidate for governor through radio and online advertising, canvassing and mailers, according to the report. The pro-abortion PAC also is supporting Justin Fairfax for lieutenant governor and Mark R. Herring for state attorney general.
