mcauliffecuccinelliPlanned Parenthood Votes reported Friday that it spent nearly $1.1 million on a new anti-[Ken] Cuccinelli ad purchase that left the [federal] SuperPAC with only $73,746 to pay its remaining bills totaling $59,919.

Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood, has called Cuccinelli’s defeat her “top priority.”

Working closely with Democrat candidate Terry McAuliffe, who last week told students at George Mason University that he will be a “brick wall” against any limits on late-term abortions in Virginia, Planned Parenthood has produced ads and mailings that have characterized Cuccinelli as an extremist for his pro-life position and his determination to end public funding of the abortion giant.

Planned Parenthood’s mailings have referred to Cuccinelli as “extremely dangerous for women” because he sought restrictions on abortion-on-demand as attorney general, and for his vote, as a state senator, to overturn former Democrat Gov. Mark Warner’s veto of the partial birth abortion ban.

Cuccinelli also drafted Virginia’s parental consent law and demanded that the state’s abortion facilities meet the same health standards as other surgical centers….

[PP and McAuliffe’s] website also makes the statement that “access to safe and legal abortion” would be in “danger” if Cuccinelli is elected governor. While abortion in the United States is “legal,” it is arguable that the current standards are by no means “safe.” Evidence of this includes… a report less than two weeks ago of an abortion facility in Falls Church, Virginia that was forced to send two women to the hospital following botched abortions.

Falls Church Healthcare filed a challenge in June to Virginia’s new health and safety standards for abortion facilities. Last year’s inspection report of the facility described safety violations that included bloody, reused vacutainer holders, blood-stained walls and operating tables, and no policy for reporting patient deaths.

Note: Terry McAuliffe is a former Democratic National Committee Chair and held leadership roles with Bill Clinton’s 1996 re-election and Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaigns. He has vowed to be a “brick wall” against any restrictions whatsoever on abortion, even through the ninth month.
