You can usually tell a lot about a person by the way they spend their time, and our new governor is no exception.
Since being elected, Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf named a Planned Parenthood executive to his transition team and appointed a man who could have stopped Kermit Gosnell to his cabinet.
Recently, we learned that Wolf also used to volunteer for the abortion giant Planned Parenthood.
Earlier this month, Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards proudly told a Pennsylvania group that Wolf is the “first governor in the history of this country who is also a former Planned Parenthood escort.”
For anyone who doesn’t know, Planned Parenthood escorts are volunteers who walk with patients from their car to the building, blocking them from pro-life sidewalk counselors. Escorts can be nasty, even abusive, toward pro-lifers and pushy toward the women they escort.
Their job is to prevent women from hearing about the other options and resources available for them and their baby. They don’t trust women to make their own decisions.
And that’s how our new governor, Tom Wolf, used to spend his free time.
We need to keep a close eye on Wolf to ensure that he doesn’t do in office what he did as a volunteer. Women deserve to know the full truth about abortion, their preborn baby, and the pregnancy and parenting resources available to them.
Let’s hope that our new governor will have a change of heart and start trusting women with all the facts.
