WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Republican proposal to withdraw Title X federal funding from Planned Parenthood could cause a dangerous drop in the abortion provider's campaign contributions to liberal political candidates, Democratic leaders sternly cautioned during a press conference earlier today.
"Planned Parenthood does much more than perform abortions," House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi told reporters. "They provide crucial services to marginalized Democrat candidates, like spending over $30 million to support pro-abortion candidates in the upcoming midterm elections."
"If we do not prop up Planned Parenthood with taxpayer dollars," she continued, "where will Democratic candidates go for the vital health care services Planned Parenthood is known for, like their $2000-per-plate fundraising dinners and slick political advertising campaigns?"
"This is a human rights issue," she added somberly.
When a reporter pointed out the Republican proposal would only cut taxpayer funding for money spent directly on abortions, Pelosi responded by saying Republicans "obviously hate all women."
