Pro-Life Female Leader: Women Want To Defund Planned Parenthood

The mainstream media wants you to think that only men want to see Planned Parenthood defunded, but a pro-life female leader recently destroyed that argument in a column for lifenews.com.

Kelsey Hazzard is the president of Secular Pro-Life and a friend to Students for Life of America.

She writes, ” Pro-life people recognize the fact that abortion kills humans. We view those humans as children (morally relevant young humans deserving protection). So we view abortion first and foremost as a human rights violationOf course pro-life politicians are going to discuss Planned Parenthood in the context of fetal rights. That’s basically another way of saying pro-life people will discuss abortion from a pro-life perspective….Pro-life Republican women might be less vocal about women’s issues generally, but Planned Parenthood is not simply a ‘women’s issue’ topic. It goes well beyond that.”

The Institute for Pro-Life Advancement, the research arm of Students for Life of America, found other support for pro-life positions from both male and female Millennials.

Key findings include:

  • 7 of 10 Millennials support limits on abortion through specific policies like parental notification, limiting abortions later in pregnancy like at 5 months of pregnancy, and opposition to government funding of abortion.

  • Only 7 percent shared the position of the Democratic Party Platform – abortion without any exceptions and funded by tax dollars.

  • More Millennials than not support Roe’s reversal. Asked directly about support for overturning Roe and returning abortion to the states, 41 percent supported Roe’s reversal.

  • 65 percent of Millennials support the right to vote on abortion-related policy and want a voice on abortion policy

  • 56 percent of Millennials, oppose selling Chemical Abortion drugs on-line or dropping the requirement for a physical exam because of the risks to women.

  • By about a 3 to 1 margin (48 percent to 17 percent), Millennials said they preferred that their tax monies went to Federally Qualified Health Centers rather than the abortion giant, Planned Parenthood.

  • 51 percent said that they opposed Roe, when they understood it allows for abortion through all 9 months of pregnancy
