The poor dears at Planned Parenthood are in a tizzy. According to The Politico, in an emergency move they're purchasing $200,000 worth of ad time to beg for continuing their federal funding.
Imagine that, they're afraid they're not going to be able to rob from the rich to kill the poor. Awww.
Hmmm...but this ad makes me think Big Abortion is getting a little nervous.
Now, I've got to ask that since Planned Parenthood swears that none of the money they receive from the feds goes to abortion (haha) does the taxpayer money they receive go to buying television ads? Wouldn't that be ironic if they were using federal taxpayer money in order to buy ads begging for more taxpayer funding?
Here's their ad. Funny, no mention of abortion.
Jim Geraghty correctly points out "if you can afford to spend $200,000 on television ads, maybe you don’t need all of that federal funding."
Update 11:28: This is why I love the SBA List. This is the perfect response. PP puts up $200,000 and the SBA List does the same arguing for defunding and initiates a grassroots tour.
Today, the Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) announced the launch of a 14-stop grassroots tour and $200,000 ad campaign in support of its efforts to defund Planned Parenthood in the Continuing Resolution (CR). Starting tomorrow, the “Women Speaking Out” campaign will launch a series of television and radio ad buys thanking Members of Congress who stood up for women, young girls and taxpayers with their vote for Rep. Mike Pence’s (R-IN) amendment to deny all taxpayer funding to Planned ParenthoodHere's the first:
