People who pay union dues may be donating to Planned Parenthood whether they like it or not. The Free Beacon reported on Monday that three of the biggest unions in America donated a total of $435,000 to Planned Parenthood during 2014. The three unions were the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW), and Service Employees International Union (SEIU). AFSCME and SEIU both represent public sector employees. But the ties between Planned Parenthood and some of Americas biggest unions go far beyond donations.
Almost all of the 2014 union-donated money was spent on political campaigns. The AFSCME donation of $400,000 went to the Planned Parenthood Action Fund.

The money was almost equally divided between supporting Democratic Party candidates and negative campaigns against Republican Party candidates.
