Only six short months ago, abortion provider Planned Parenthood had an incredibly bright outlook on their future, as they had largely survived the terrible public relations crisis that stemmed from the horrific undercover videos exposing their atrocious practices and believed they were about to have a true friend and open abortion-supporter in the White House in the form of then-Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
But Republican President Donald Trump won instead, and with the GOP retaining control of the House and Senate, the future for Planned Parenthood’s murder factories suddenly took on a rather bleak appearance.
In a recent interview with Buzzfeed, Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards spoke about the stark change in outlook for her organization, while conveniently making an appearance at a Wisconsin clinic in the home district of Speaker of the House Paul Ryan.

The main topic of discussion was the likely effort by the GOP-led Congress and White House to defund the abortion-provider of nearly half a billion dollars in annual federal funding, as well as potential legislation to restrict abortions and the probable addition of a pro-life justice to the Supreme Court, placing the left’s sacrosanct Roe v. Wade decision in play once more.
“The stakes have become quite clear recently, and they’re very high,” Richards said following the meeting in Kenosha. “The patients I talk to are terrified they’re going to lose their access to health care, and docs and clinicians are terrified that this Senate is going block the women with the least access to health care from getting any at all.”
On the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to replace the late Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court, Richards said she had “no hope” that he would defend “abortion rights.”

“Quite clearly the Supreme Court is an enormous risk,” she said. “It is really frightening to think we would go back to a time when we were fighting about access to birth control in women’s insurance plans. Or that you would let your boss decide whether or not you could get it.”
Richards did seem to take heart in the various protests and women’s march against Trump, saying, “I’ve never seen a reaction like this before in this volume.” However, she added as a caveat, “The truth is, no one really knows what will make a difference anymore. But that’s why we have to do everything we can.”
Richards stated that her organization was making preparations to face what for them would be a worst-case scenario, a loss of federal funding, and admitted that she doubted Planned Parenthood would be capable of replacing the $500 million annually solely through private funding.
Echoing Richards was Leslie McGorman, deputy policy director of the pro-abortion group NARAL, who in a piece by Bloomberg detailing the coming legislative battle proclaimed that they would “pull out all the stops” in an attempt to block congressional efforts at defunding Planned Parenthood.
However, she also expressed doubts about how effective that attempt would be, saying, “What tactic that requires remains to be seen.”
The simple truth is, the abortion industry is in trouble right now at both the federal and state level, and supporters of the murderous practice are scrambling to figure out how to keep their bloody breadbaskets full.
