Planned Parenthood CEOs and late-term abortionists donate thousands to Democratic party

money

A 2015 Planned Parenthood Affiliate Chief Executive Officers Report (prepared by STOPP International) lists 62 current or recent Planned Parenthood affiliate CEOs. Searching these CEOs on the FEC and Open Secrets websites will turn up thousands of dollars in donations to three favorites:

  1. Barack Obama
  2. Hillary Clinton
  3. The Democratic Party (both national and state)

Time and space in previous articles have already been spent detailing the dedication of Planned Parenthood to President Barack Obama. Those donations have ended, as Obama is term-limited and will no longer be campaigning for a political office.

This article will not be focusing on donations to candidates by Planned Parenthood’s political action committee or by its president, Cecile Richards. (The relation between the abortion giant at large and Hillary Clinton is explained in detail here.) Instead, this article will focus on personal donations by top Planned Parenthood staff throughout the nation, as well as late-term abortionists, to the Democratic party.

Warren Hern

Hern is a late-term abortionist who operates his facility in Boulder, CO. He is currently being sued for a botched abortion that left a 4-centimeter piece of the baby’s skull in the mother’s uterus. The complaint against Hern indicates he did not even bother to conduct an ultrasound following the late-term abortion to ensure all pieces of the baby had been removed. Hern has written a textbook on abortion procedures and describes that “the sensations of dismemberment flow through the forceps like an electric current.”

Hern has regularly donated to a number of Democratic politicians – including Hillary Clinton, CO Rep. Dianna DeGette, and former CO Senator Mark Udall. Additionally, he has donated thousands to the Democratic party, including:

  • Four donations to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee from 1998 to 2006, totaling $3,499.
  • 14 donations to the Democratic Party of Colorado from 2005 to 2010, totaling $13,750. His biggest donation year to date was 2007, with $8,250 going to the party that year.

George Tiller

Tiller was perhaps the most infamous late-term abortionist in the nation. He was known for performing partial-birth abortions, even on healthy, late-term babies. Prior to his shooting death in 2009, he was a giant donor to the Democratic Party – on the state and national levels. Tiller donated:

  • $50,800 to the Kansas Democratic State Committee from 1989-2004.
  • $24,874 to multiple state Democratic committees and/or Democratic victory/election committees in states including Ohio, Michigan, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Florida, Missouri, Indiana, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, Colorado, Alaska, Wisconsin, Virginia.
  • All of the $24,874 was donated in 2008, except for $5000 that was given in Missouri in 2004. The majority of Tiller’s, 2008 donations were made in October, just before the general election.
  • On the national level, Tiller made six donations to the DNC Services Corp/Democratic National Committee from 1996-2008, totaling a whopping $69,000.
