Planned Parenthood reveals big 2014 game plan
Politico ^ | 26 Feb 2014 | ALEXANDER BURNS

Posted on 02/26/2014 4:48:17 PM PST by mandaladon

The political arm of Planned Parenthood is preparing to launch its largest campaign offensive ever, targeting more than a dozen states and some of the cycle’s top Senate and gubernatorial races to raise the alarm about the stakes of the 2014 midterm elections for women’s health care and abortion rights. The cost of the midterm campaign is expected to cross the $18 million mark, including $2.4 million the group spent in 2013 for Virginia’s off-year governor’s race, officials with the group said. That investment would make the Planned Parenthood Action Fund and Planned Parenthood Votes — the national federation’s political entities — two of the heaviest outside spenders on the Democratic side, and certainly among the top independent expenditure campaigns focused on reaching women.

With Democrats increasingly reliant on their yawning advantage with women voters in recent years — and state and national Republicans repeatedly taking aim at Planned Parenthood as a prominent abortion services provider — the group has rapidly become a vital part of the roundtable of left-of-center groups plotting the Democratic coalition’s electoral strategy.

Cecile Richards, president of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, said the group intends to show that candidates don’t need to campaign defensively on “women’s reproductive health issues,” citing the importance of that message to Democratic victories in the 2012 elections and last year’s Virginia race. “The bottom line is: Many of these races are going to be determined by women and women voters. To the extent that we still have politicians who are running on a platform to repeal women’s access to health care and women’s rights, that’s a losing proposition,” Richards said. “We will absolutely be on the offense on these issues.”

The group intends to engage using a range of tactics it previously employed to great effect in Virginia, including a combination of voter-contact efforts like door-knocking and campaign mail, as well as paid advertising on television and online. Democrats involved in the race lauded the group for its role in disqualifying Republican nominee Ken Cuccinelli as an option for many women in the state..................They'll use any tactic that will get them votes.

[ Their agenda is KILL MORE BLACK BABIES!! ]

Almost makes me wonder if we would have more success at abortion clinic protests hiring some people dress up as shall we say “ghosts” and counter protest the conservative people protesting abortion and voicing outward vocal support for any minority passing through the doors.

It would quickly be used to day how supposedly racist we were and used as an attack against us because the left is not self aware and totally doesn’t understands irony...

LiveAction.org is a pro-life organization that targets the same young people that Planned Parenthood attempts to deceive. Give to Lila Rose and her team!
