We’ve written about former New York mayor and current Bloomberg News owner Michael Bloomberg’s love affair with Planned Parenthood on several occasions.
When he was competing to be the Democrats’ presidential nominee, reporters fell all over themselves assuring us how “moderate” he was. That was preposterous when it came to any number of issues but especially abortion.
Hat’s off to Joseph Vazquez who wrote a post today headlined, “Michael Bloomberg Gave $4,000,000 to Planned Parenthood Votes.”
Based on research done by Open Secrets, Vazquez began his story by writing,” Bloomberg News owner Michael Bloomberg spent millions trying to prop up pro-abortion candidates in the 2020 elections.”
And that’s putting it mildly.
Back in November 2019, LifeSiteNews rightly described the billionaire as “one of the most radical pro-abortion politicians in American history.” And he had richly earned that title. According to Vasquez “Between 2014-2017 alone, the Bloomberg Family Foundation gave the abortion mill at least $13,962,000.”
Back to 2020….
“Bloomberg’s spending to promote abortion is in addition to the $100 million he was slated to spend to try to claim the swing state of Florida for Biden,” Vazquez writes.
President Donald Trump would end up winning the state by a 51.2 percent to 47.9 percent margin. This is in addition to the $60 million Bloomberg pledged in August in an attempt to expand the Democrats’ majority in the House of Representatives, which also failed to materialize.
It’s also on top of the more than $1 billion he spent on his failed Democratic presidential campaign, the $18 million he shifted from his failed campaign to the Democratic National Committee and the $35 million pledge he made to fund the data consulting firm Hawkfish to help Democrats.
Bloomberg, alas, is not the only pro-abortion billionaire who gives massive amounts of money to pro-abortion groups and/or their political arms. George Soros is the first name that comes to mind.
Just think of what all that enormous amounts of money spent to make abortion even more readily available could accomplish if it were redirected to promote respect for life?
