Planned Parenthood Runs Campaign With Cancer Survivors to Save Funding, But Abortion is Linked to Breast Cancer

Fifty-six of 71 epidemiologic studies, and biological and experimental evidence support the abortion-breast cancer link

Planned Parenthood plans to launch a $1 million ad campaign to convince the public it needs tax money to continue providing cancer screening services, Politico reports.

Planned Parenthood is in panic mode as U.S. Congress moves to defund it; tax dollars make up close to half of its annual budget. The abortion group receives about half a billion taxpayer dollars each year, and performs about 320,000 abortions on unborn babies annually.

President Donald Trump recently offered a deal that would have allowed Planned Parenthood to keep receiving tax money if it stopped doing abortions. Planned Parenthood refused.

Now, it is trying to convince the public to help stop the defunding effort. Planned Parenthood’s new television and digital ads will feature cancer survivors explaining how they went to Planned Parenthood to receive help. Some ads also will show a clip of President Donald Trump who once praised the abortion chain for helping women affected by cancer.

According to the report:  “Millions and millions of women, cervical cancer, breast cancer, are helped by Planned Parenthood,” Trump says in the ad, which pulls the quote from his Feb. 26 primary debate with Republicans. The ad then cuts to a cancer survivor talking about Planned Parenthood.

The campaign will include a digital effort and possible “grassroots events” across the country, said Dawn Laguens, an executive vice president at Planned Parenthood.

“They want to weasel, waffle and deal-make to get out the way,” Laguens said. “We have a lot of people, and they are going to get rowdy, not just on TV but on their doorsteps.
