Jeb Bush likes to focus on what a pro-life guy he is. He talks about his record as a pro-life governor of Florida. That mask got shattered this week.
In 2010 Jeb Bush accepted a position as a Director of the Bloomberg Family Foundation, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s foundation. Bush said he took the job because of Bloomberg’s support for education.
In my book that’s a lot like supporting the Nazi party because they brought full employment to Germany.
Bloomberg and his foundation support “education” in the form of Common Core, but they also support destroying the 2nd Amendment and they are ardent supporters of Planned Parenthood. Or, as they’ve come to be rightly known, Planned Murderhood .
Until the eve of his presidential campaign, Jeb Bush was director of a philanthropy that gave tens of millions of dollars to Planned Parenthood and financed its advocacy of “unrestricted access to abortion” around the world. The charity also approved money to global abortion providers while he sat on its board.
While a Bush spokesman has responded to concerns by saying that Bush would not have voted on every initiative of the foundation, a pro-life leader told LifeSiteNews it “stretches credibility” that Bush was unaware of the foundation’s pro-abortion work, given the centrality of such work to the foundation’s mission, and its scope.
Even if you accept the idea that Bush is somehow pro-life, we agree that it’s impossible that he was unaware of the foundations “other” work. Especially since we’re not talking about nickles and dimes.
In March of 2014, the Bloomberg Philanthropies announced a $50 million undertaking to expand “reproductive health,” including lobbying foreign nations to loosen restrictions on abortion.
Bloomberg announced a major partnership with Planned Parenthood-Global to train and equip abortion activists in pro-life countries.
Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards greeted the news by saying that “governments need to play a stronger role to ensure that all women have access to the health care they need” – including abortion – “no matter who they are, no matter where they live.”
If I needed a reason to reject Jeb! Bush as a candidate for President, he just gave me 55 million of them.
