For the midterms, Planned Parenthood announced a record $50 million spend.
At the same time, nearly every candidate running as a Democrat this election cycle decided to feature abortion at the center of their platform. That’s not a coincidence.
Taking a human life is lucrative. Saving a human life is not.
Behind the heavy curtain of the Democratic National Committee sits the massive abortion industry. Planned Parenthood alone rakes in over $1.5 billion annually. It has proven remarkably agile at increasing the demand for its product, manipulating $600 million in annual cashflows from taxpayer subsidies, and diversifying its revenue streams (think trafficking human body parts).
But behind the curtain of pro-life politics are newborn Americans. Some are in the arms of scared but brave mothers who were told they didn’t have what it takes to love their children. Others are in the arms of scared but brave adoptive mothers who volunteered to love someone else’s child as their own. All of them managed to avoid the Big Abortion machine. There, they would have become one of more than 600,000 babies each year who never find their way into someone’s arms.
There is no “Big Pro-life.” It doesn’t exist.
In fact, the pro-life movement is the opposite of an industry. Industries are hungry for profit. The pro-life movement actually advocates for Americans to choose the far more costly option of birthing and raising a child.
Pro-life work is rawly humanitarian. It is often thankless and politically risky, more likely to result in a net financial loss than a gain. Pro-life advocates rarely meet the babies they help save. Their motivation is their conviction that all persons are created equal and deserving of the right to life. As with all great human rights movements, that is more than enough.
And perhaps that’s why Democratic leaders are begging for your vote in 2022. They have everything to lose and nothing to gain in supporting the right to life. Abortion masquerades as a social issue, but it’s money-driven Politics 101 at its finest.
The big, profit-driven industry cozies up to its political allies and hires lobbyists to keep them happy. Those lobbyists are rewarded for every year they maintain the industry’s government “contracts” on top of direct-to-market dealings. And just to ensure continued goodwill, the bloated industry drops some of its cash into the politicians’ campaigns.
Meanwhile, no pro-life industry means no money. The pro-life politician doesn’t receive a dime from the children and mothers she saves. Adoptive families don’t give kickbacks. Pregnancy resource centers—busier than ever providing mentoring, diapers, baby clothes and much more—don’t have the budgets or desire to become a political force.
To Big Abortion, the death of a child is worth as much as $750. To pro-lifers, the life of a child is priceless.
When money is involved, the picture quickly becomes clearer and more self-interested. That’s why President Biden made his desperate pitch to voters: vote for my party and we’ll give you the last 50 years of Roe abortion policy plus today’s abortion extremism. That’s why the President’s Administration officials are competing to see which policy can get the “attaboy” from Big Abortion fastest: free abortion travel from the Pentagon, abortions in public schools, abortions at Veterans Affairs facilities. Stay tuned for an announcement from the White House that it will be converting the West Wing into a surgical abortion facility with an abortion pill vending machine in the lobby.
It doesn’t matter that the vast majority of Americans disagree with late-term, on-demand, taxpayer-funded abortion. When Big Abortion pulls the strings, their puppets move into action.
This election, American voters will hear hollow words about a “woman’s right to choose” and that “abortion is healthcare.” When they do, they should stop and listen.
In abortion politics, money talks. And it’s a lot louder than the newborn cries that will never be heard.
Voting for life and for families,
Sr. Vice President, Strategy
