Planned Parenthood has promised to support congressional, presidential and state-level political candidates that are running this year with USD 45 Million. As long as said candidates are for abortion rights. Jenny Lawson, the Planned Parenthood Votes Executive Director, said, “The stakes have never been higher.” “[The Trump Administration} has managed to undo so much over the last three years,” Lawson said in an exclusive interview with CBS News. “The fact that this summer the Supreme Court might gut Roe v. Wade is an indicator of their intention and they’ve never been so bold.”
“For too long, politicians in power have stood on the wrong side of the people,” said Jenny Lawson, executive director of Planned Parenthood Votes, the organization’s super PAC that is behind the push. “From the wave of abortion bans to the gutting of affordable birth control programs to the confirmation of anti-abortion judges, the attacks on our health and rights from Trump and his buddies in Congress have been unprecedented.” “Our country is at a crossroads, but now it’s time for us to reclaim our power. In 2020, we’re fighting back and electing reproductive champions up and down the ballot — because our futures depend on it,” Lawson said.
“We Decide 2020,” was launched this week. Previously last year, Republican states had taken advantage as the new conservative majority in the Supreme Court as POTUS Trump’s anti-abortion policies had passed 59 abortion restrictions.
In March, the Supreme Court will take on the first major abortion related case with two of Trump’s appointees at the bench, Justice Brett Kavanaugh and Justice Neil Gorsuch. Earlier this year lawmakers filed an amicus brief in the case that pressed the Supreme Court to reconsider Roe v. Wade, the decision that legalized abortion.
