Planned Parenthood’s super PAC this week announced it was launching a $45 million campaign in 2020 battleground states that will direct several million dollars to Arizona with the goal of defeating Republican U.S. Sen. Martha McSally.

The primary goal of the campaign from Planned Parenthood Votes is to flip control of the U.S. Senate from Republican control, and Planned Parenthood Arizona spokeswoman Tayler Tucker said defeating McSally is a critical part of doing so.

Tucker said Planned Parenthood Votes directed about $2 million to Arizona for the 2018 elections, almost all of which was spent to help Democratic Senate nominee Kyrsten Sinema defeat McSally. She said more than that will be spent against McSally in 2020, but it wasn’t yet clear how much more. Tucker said McSally, who was appointed to the Senate to fill the seat once held by the late John McCain, has voted against women’s health care by voting to repeal the Affordable Care Act. McSally also has been silent on the Trump administration’s “gag rule” regarding abortion referrals for recipients of federal funding, Tucker said.

“All of the polling is showing that more and more Arizonans don’t want to support candidates who aren’t for health care access,” Tucker said.

In addition to having been dumped by the voters and then handed the senate seat by governor Doofus, McSally is a liar. Remember this, on 24 October 2018 she said, she’s "leading the fight" to "force insurance companies to cover pre-existing conditions." To date she has done nothing to protect anyone and has agreed with the loser in the White House to cut health care access for millions of Americans.

As to Planned Parenthood, I am reminded of this exchange - Woman to man, “If you want to stop abortions maybe you should consider a vasectomy.” Man’s response, “Don’t tell me what to do with my body!”
