A recent Washington Post article attempted to vilify the National Rifle Association by pointing out that the NRA has donated more than $3.5 million to members of Congress since 1998. The Post appeared aghast at the figure, especially in light of recent mass shootings.
A fellow journalist pointed out on Twitter that this equates to roughly $190,000 per year in toto, while Planned Parenthood shelled out $38 million dollars last year alone to our intrepid public servants in the House and Senate.
Gun control advocates claim that their preferred policy prescriptions will save lives, despite all evidence to the contrary. Criminals don’t obey laws, by definition, and the majority of lethally violent crimes and shootings are ended because good and courageous people, including police officers, had guns.
Ironically, those who oppose the Second Amendment because they believe banning guns will somehow save lives, even while depriving law-abiding citizens the ability to defend themselves and their loved ones, tend to be vociferous supporters of abortion, a “procedure” specifically designed to kill babies.
Reports indicate the Planned Parenthood Action Fund Political Action Committee spent approximately $30 million to support the campaigns of Hillary Clinton and other pro-abortion candidates just during the last election cycle.
Talk about blood money! Apparently, it’s okay to shoot one’s wad indiscriminately-- for fun —and then snuff out the resulting innocent life via a procedure paid for by others, but it’s not okay to shoot one’s firearm in defense of innocent life. Planned parenthood has donated many times more money to Congress than the NRA…and receives hundreds of millions of dollars in government funding, despicably enough.
This is the reverse of “cash on delivery.” It is cash to prevent delivery.
Only a confused and morally bankrupt society could sanction Planned parenthood and decry the NRA.
