Phony ‘Pro-Life’ Activists Shill for Georgia’s Establishment-Backed U.S. Senate Pick Kelly Loeffler
WNBA team owner Kelly Loeffler was picked by Georgia Governor Brian Kemp earlier this week to replace departing Sen. Johnny Isakson at the end of the year against the wishes of President Donald Trump.
Big League Politics has reported extensively on Loeffler’s ties to pro-abortion groups, but phony “pro-life” activists are coming out to rally the troops on her behalf.
Joshua Edmonds of the Georgia Life Alliance is shilling for Loeffler, claiming that a brief meeting he had with the future U.S. Senator nullifies her long-standing record.
“What we heard consistently from her is that she is unapologetically pro-life, that she supports Georgia’s heartbeat bill, which is the most landmark piece of legislation our state has ever passed,” Edmonds said. “She has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to pro-life candidates around the country.”
Edmonds’ assessment leaves out the fact that Loeffler has donated to many Democratic Party politicians throughout the years, and only ingratiated herself to the GOP establishment after donating $750,000 to a Super PAC backing failed globalist presidential contender Mitt Romney in 2012. He also makes excuses for her WNBA team’s support of Planned Parenthood.
“In regards to the connection between Planned Parenthood and the WNBA, everything that we’ve been shown on record is that there is a connection between the league and Planned Parenthood, not to Ms. Loeffler and Planned Parenthood,” Edmonds said.
“She said she’s never given a dollar to Planned Parenthood or to abortion providers, and we have no record that that’s not the case,” she added.
This is an outright falsehood, as Loeffler’s WNBA franchise has been directly involved in a kickback scheme that funnelled ticket money to Planned Parenthood:
Loeffler also co-owns the Atlanta Dream, a franchise in the Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA). The WNBA has never turned a profit throughout its entire existence, and serves as little more than an outlet for violent lesbian brutes to act out their aggression on a public stage.
The WNBA is steeped in social justice rhetoric, typically blaming sexism for the lack of interest in their dismal product, and Loeffler’s franchise has participated in a revenue-sharing scheme that funneled money into the coffers of Planned Parenthood.
Through the “Take A Seat, Take A Stand” program that operated in 2018, the WNBA officially joined the resistance against President Donald Trump. It sent $5 from every ticket sold during a WNBA game throughout the 2018 season to a wide variety of extreme leftist special interest groups such as Planned Parenthood, MENTOR, GLSEN, It’s on Us, Bright Pink, and The United State of Women…
Loeffler’s franchise, the Atlanta Dream, did in fact take part in this program, and they promoted the idea on their official team website.
A story in Glamour about the “Take a Seat, Take a Stand” program noted that participation was not mandatory. Loeffler’s franchise chose to participate in this program that helped murder babies in the womb, furthered the LGBT agenda as it relentlessly targets children, and helped fan the flames of the #metoo hysteria that undermines due process.
In addition, Loeffler serves on the board of Georgia’s largest abortion provider, Grady Memorial Hospital of Atlanta. Legitimate pro-life activists have come out against her appointment to the U.S. Senate vehemently.
“We’re past the point of ever being willing to accept sort of a passive argument for someone’s pro-life advocacy or pro-life position,” said Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of Susan B. Anthony’s List. “All we’ve seen is evidence of her leadership positions and what she’s failed to do with them.”
“After the Senate gains made by conservative and pro-life candidates in the 2018 election, this would be a huge setback,” said Tom McClusky, president of March for Life, in a statement.
Gov. Kemp did a great disservice to the authentic pro-life movement by appointing Loeffler to the U.S. Senate over President Trump’s preferred choice, Rep. Doug Collins.
