Planned Parenthood likes to claim that they are a non-partisan, non-profit organization but in Arizona they aren’t just advocating for abortion and funding for their organization, they are sponsoring an ideologically driven and arguably partisan candidate training event.
The flyer says:
The Arizona Local Progressive Candidate Training Program is designed to help individuals develop the skills and resources they need to advance progressive change through local elected office.
The flyer also states:
The Arizona Local Progressive Candidate Training Program is sponsored by the Center for Progressive Leadership, Planned Parenthood Arizona and the Arizona Education Association.
Whether one supports “Progressive” political ideology or not, this shows that Planned Parenthood’s lobbying efforts are not just about them getting government funds or advancing the right to terminate one’s unborn child, they are involved in pushing a broad political agenda.
Note: Planned Parenthood’s President Cecile Richards is a former senior deputy to House Democrat minority leader Nancy Pelosi.
