Planned Parenthood’s business is killing babies … and business is evidently pretty good. Good enough to spend six figures on anti-Kavanaugh ads, anyway:
EXCLUSIVE — Planned Parenthood is ramping up its anti-Kavanaugh campaign with new ad buy, website and multi-media push. https://t.co/V6Xg4NgRZZ

More from the Daily Beast:
Planned Parenthood Action Fund, along with the National Women’s Law Center, Center for American Progress Action Fund and other groups will unveil a new ad campaign on Wednesday, with the express purpose of shifting the debate away from the politics of the Kavanaugh nomination and on to personal stories about people who could be affected by his position on the Supreme Court.
Titled “#DearSenators,” the campaign will include a new website that will feature patient stories, letters that constituents have sent to senators and other interactive tools. In addition, Planned Parenthood is beginning a six-figure ad buy that features testimonials from women about access to health care and the importance of Roe v. Wade, the landmark decision that legalized abortion and is seen as being threatened should Kavanaugh be confirmed to the Supreme Court. The television ads will be primarily targeted to Alaska and Maine, while the digital ones will be across the country.
“While politicians like Sen. McConnell and President Trump may see this as a political game, for millions of Americans, the fight over Kavanaugh is personal,” Carmen Berkley, managing director of Planned Parenthood Action Fund said in a statement. “The constitutional right to have an abortion is at stake. Our ability to get health care and to live free of discrimination is at stake.”
How are they able to do this? I was told they need every last cent of funding for women's healthcare. https://t.co/JHJHmgUhJu

So were we!
Now, it’s important to note that Planned Parenthood Action Fund is a PAC and is technically distinct from Planned Parenthood, but those lines are pretty damn blurry.
Why is an organization that is so active in partisan politics getting any of my tax dollars?

Why are my tax dollars stolen for this? This has nothing to do with healthcare https://t.co/9W6oXQFl0T

Our tax dollars should have nothing to do with Planned Parenthood.
Another example of why Planned Parenthood should not receive Federal Funds. https://t.co/8PRnIo4zJl

So they are not strapped for cash as they always pretend to be. Yet they are always asking for more.

So I guess they can survive without government funding. #TheMoreYouKnow
