Conservatives for years have dreamed of defunding the biggest abortion provider in the country.
Lila Rose and the Live Action gang has done several videos showing them to be a corrupt organization that covers up rape. The SBA-List has campaigned around the country attempting to get Congress and/or state legislatures to defund Planned Parenthood. Pro-life activists and local pro-life organizations have called, written, demonstrated in an attempt to defund Planned Parenthood.
But now it seems the left may do what the right hasn’t been able to do. The SEIU is attempting to unionize the workers at Planned Parenthood. And this is one time conservatives should totally get behind the SEIU. Hey, there’s no quicker way to bankrupt a company than letting the unions get in there. Just ask the car companies.
John Ransom at Townhall writes:
“161 care providers at Planned Parenthood Columbia Willamette (PPCW) voted to form a union with SEIU Local 49 in a National Labor Relations Board Election (NLRB), says the Lund Report. “The vote was a strong majority for the union with a tally of: 97 yes for the union and 43 no.”
If further local Planned Parenthood shops decide to unionize under SEIU, if would prove a very complicated – although admittedly ironic twist, and certainly one full of poetic justice- for the brazen abortion provider.
Management at the Planned Parenthood clinic, of course, opposed unionizing for America for the same reasons that the rest of us think the SEIU sucks.
“In multiple emails, [Planned Parenthood CEO David] Greenberg told employees to weigh the arguments and make up their own minds,” reported the Portland Mercury. “But in an email dated July 19th, he writes that the union may be promising more than it can deliver and says, ‘I hope you will not vote to have SEIU represent you.’”
Greenberg cited the increased costs required for unionization as one the main reasons Planned Parenthood management was opposed to the move.
A more pressing issue is how much say the union will have in running things at Planned Parenthood.
This couldn’t make me happier. Honestly. The leftist lunatics are seeking to milk other leftist lunatics dry. It’s kinda’ like the snake eating its tail. Or something.
I can’t believe we didn’t think of this earlier. Let’s all get behind unionizing Planned Parenthood. I can’t wait for the first strike!
I foresee a day when pro-lifers and union thugs will march together hand in hand outside abortion clinics. It’ll be sooooo beautiful. I’ll bring the inflatable rat.
