Candidates Unwilling to Defund Planned Parenthood Shouldn’t Receive a Single Conservative Vote

Yesterday Donald Trump indicated that he was open to continuing to fund Planned Parenthood, saying, “What I would do when the time came, I’d look at the individual things they do, and maybe some of the individual things they do are good. I know a lot of the things are bad. But certainly the abortion aspect of it should not be funded by government, absolutely.” Of course it’s not truly possible to wall off Planned Parenthood’s abortion work from the rest of the organization. Half a billion dollars of taxpayer money helps keep the nation’s largest abortion provider alive. Funding Planned Parenthood funds abortions.

    Donald missed this one by a long shot. Abortion is their whole raison-être. Still one can be opposed to making all abortions illegal and still understand the difference between that and Planned Parenthood.

    • He should have done better.

        Maybe, maybe not.
        Is any Republican even talking as strongly as him on this issue?

  • Brett_McS

    I get the feeling that NR are more interested in dumping on Trump than on Planned Parenthood.

  • Norman_In_New_York

    We have seen over the decades that Republican politicians will talk the talk on abortion but seldom walk the walk.

      The problem for the Republicans begins with their 40 years as the House Minority party. They have developed a knee-jerk reaction in favour of bipartisanship which means never giving upset to the Dems.

    Trump on abortion (although you don’t have to believe him just like you shouldn’t believe the GOPe on it):

  • Ron MacDonald

    They should be cut off from all RNC funding in 2016.
