New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D) is truly fired up and ready to take action over the recent Planned Parenthood videos showing top-level officials trying to harvest and sell organs from aborted babies.
Just maybe not in the way you’d imagine.
No, whereas most people saw the disturbing videos and thought these abhorrent acts call for an investigation into Planned Parenthood, Gillibrand saw them and thought, ‘fundraising opportunity.’
Via the Weekly Standard:
Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a Democrat from New York, sent out a fundraising email on Monday condemning congressional efforts to investigate Planned Parenthood’s practice of harvesting and selling aborted baby organs to biotech companies.
Gillibrand writes that the congressional investigation of Planned Parenthood “makes my head explode.”
“I’m confident that if we had more women leading in Washington, we would not still be dealing with the right wing’s efforts to trample women’s health care,” she says. The fundraising email concludes by urging supporters: “Please, click here to give every dollar you can right now.”
The full e-mail can be seen at the link above.
On a side note, making ones “head explode” is still a much better fate than most babies are afforded at Planned Parenthood.
It’s not a mystery as to why Gillibrand would fight to preserve Planned Parenthood’s ability to provide abortions and maybe make a profit off of them on the side. During the 2012 election cycle, Gillibrand was the leading recipient of campaign contributions from the group with nearly $20,000.
Money talks for Kirsten Gillibrand.
Meanwhile, abortion clinics such as those operated by Planned Parenthood continue to go unregulated and uninspected in New York thanks to Democrats.
