Planned Parenthood Spent $734,000 To Get Ossoff Elected

Planned Parenthood says they’re not partisan, but they just spent $734,000 in a failed attempt to have Democrat Jon Ossoff elected to represent Georgia’s Sixth congressional district.

According to The Washington Times, the Planned Parenthood was the “second-biggest spender” for the Democrats in the race, behind the Democratic National Committee itself.

Ossoff raised approximately $23 million in an attempt to secure current Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price’s former seat, but lost to the pro-life Karen Handel by four points.

The race is the most expensive House race in history.

Marjorie Dannenfelser, President of the Susan B. Anthony List, a pro-life organization, argues that the election turned out to be a “referendum on Planned Parenthood.”

“Although America’s largest abortion business, Planned Parenthood, spent six figures in support of her opponent Jon Ossoff, Karen’s record of courageous leadership won the day,” Ms. Dannenfelser said according the The Times.

“We are encouraged that the voters rejected Ossoff’s extreme pro-abortion agenda and are sending Karen Handel to Washington to stand up for women and children and get taxpayers out of the abortion business,” she added.
