Remember how strange that seemed considering that profiting from the sale of human body parts is illegal? It seems that it could be a simple misapplication of justice on the part of Attorney General Becerra, but I think there is a little more to it than that.
About $3,000 more to be exact.
Prior to his appointment as California’s attorney general, Mr. Becerra was the recipient of $3,000 altogether from Planned Parenthood during his 2012 and 2014 congressional campaigns.
He’s not alone, however. Kamala Harris (Democrat), who preceded Mr. Becerra as attorney general, received $2,600 from Planned Parenthood during her senate campaign last year. Prior to that, Harris worked directly with Planned Parenthood to craft legislation specifically criminalizing the activities of the Center for Medical Progress.
Meanwhile, since 2012 Planned Parenthood went on to donate over $2.5 million to Democrat politicians in California.
It’s no wonder then that when Planned Parenthood’s illegal and horrendously unethical acts were exposed for what they were, the attorney general that they helped purchase would not only look the other way, but instead charge the ones doing the exposing.
Speaking of unethical, since when is it okay for a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that receives federal funding to donate to partisan political campaigns? Doesn’t that seem a little sketchy?
“Contributions to political campaign funds or public statements of position (verbal or written) made on behalf of the organization in favor of or in opposition to **any candidate for public office clearly violate the prohibition against political campaign activity****.”
