Planned Parenthood announces $45M campaign to defeat Trump, flip Senate

Source: The Hill

Planned Parenthood's super PAC announced a $45 million electoral campaign on Wednesday to defeat President Trump and Republicans in key Senate races.

The investment will fund "large-scale" grassroots organization programs and canvass, digital, television, radio and mail programs.

“Next November, our very rights and freedoms will be on the ballot," said Kelley Robinson, executive director of Planned Parenthood Votes.

"Already, we’ve seen Trump and his buddies in Congress and state legislatures do everything they can to strip us of our rights and access to health care."

3. The PAC. It's separate from the medical provider wing.

Much like Our Revolution isn't Bernie Sanders' campaign, but it can take all kinds of separate donations from his direct campaign.

There is a wall between the two. If you donate to PP via a link from an appeal, it will tell you which you are donating to.

8. There are two different funds. Here's the difference:

Donations made to the Planned Parenthood Federation of America through June 30 are doubled.

Just sayin'.

This is the tax-deductible branch of Planned Parenthood. There's a branch where the donations are not tax-deductible. That's the Planned Parenthood Action Fund.

If you drop the check in the mail today or otherwise get the donation in by June 30, it gets doubled up to a certain limit.

Defend Planned Parenthood. Double Your Impact.

TAX-DEDUCTIBLE
Your contribution to PPFA is tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowable.
