Mitch McConnell is going to allow a Senate vote on a 20 week abortion bad. Yes sir. He sure is. As Ben Pershing notes, this is to “defuse a shutdown fight over Planned Parenthood.”
There’s just one problem. This is a fig leaf. He actually promised this vote back in July because the Planned Parenthood videos started having an impact.
That’s right. He’s trotting out an old promise as new to try to distract us from the fact that he is willing to keep funding going to kill kids.
But wait. There’s more.
McConnell is telling Republicans that Pro-Life groups are opposed to a government shutdown over Planned Parenthood. The message is coming from McConnell’s loyal lieutenants too and is being heavily pushed by loyal media friends. There’s a problem with this too.
It’s not true.
Most pro-life groups are ready for a shutdown fight. They recognize evil. They do not want taxpayer dollars funding it. And they are pretty convinced we can win this fight and expose the atrocities to most Americans who have thus far been shielded by the press.
McConnell is lying and trying to offer previously submitted fig leaves to hid one notable fact. He is perfectly fine letting government dollars continue to subsidize an organization that sells children as scrap parts.
