December 5, 2020 (NewsBusters) — Bloomberg News owner Michael Bloomberg spent millions trying to prop up pro-abortion candidates in the 2020 elections.
Open Secrets records show Bloomberg gave the Planned Parenthood Votes (PPV) super PAC at least $4 million in the 2020 electoral cycle. The group, associated with Planned Parenthood, “makes contributions to candidates who support abortion,” according to Influence Watch. The grand total PPV spent on the 2020 federal elections amounted to $10,092,809. This means that Bloomberg’s contribution accounted for a whopping 40 percent of the pro-abortion group’s entire spending on federal elections in 2020.
Bloomberg has funneled millions to Planned Parenthood over the years. Between 2014–2017 alone, the Bloomberg Family Foundation gave the abortion mill at least $13,962,000. LifeSiteNews referred to the liberal billionaire in November 2019 as “one of the most radical pro-abortion politicians in American history.” He apparently wanted to carry that status well into 2020.
States are blocking pro-lifers from sharing the simple message “Choose Life” on their vehicles!
Please SIGN this joint petition between LifeSite and The Children First Foundation to make "Choose Life" license plates available in every state! Tell governors and state officials to allow this pro-life freedom of speech.
Advertising industry statistics show that, for the typical vehicle, a “Choose Life” plate and its simple, powerful message will be seen by other drivers 30,000 to 80,000 times a year.
And, across the U.S., “Choose Life” vehicle license plates (or tags) have raised more than $28 million for pro-life pregnancy centers, maternity homes, safe havens, and adoption centers, varying with each state.
The potential for expanding the “Choose Life” license plate program to new states and new members is incredible – but only if citizens are allowed to have the plates!
It is appalling that seventeen U.S. states do not allow their citizens the right to put “Choose Life” license plates on their vehicles.
The plates have been called pro-life “scare tactics” by Planned Parenthood and unlawful or hateful “private speech” by pro-abortion lawyers. The “Choose Life” message, however, is one of pure love that scares nobody except those who profit from death.
It is unacceptable that we are blocked from our God-given and Constitutional right to spread the message of love and life for vulnerable unborn and newborn children.
Your signature on this petition – no matter where you live – will help to get the “Choose Life” license plate program in states where it is not yet permitted!
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition to make a real difference in persuading these state governments and Departments of Motor Vehicles to “Choose Life.”
Consider, for example, our experience in New York, where Governor Andrew Cuomo is a nationally-recognized advocate of abortion and has been a relentless opponent of the pro-life movement.
Cuomo has blocked the approval of “Choose Life” license plates in NY, despite widespread support for these truly positive messages of love and life. A headline in the New York Post declared, “The DMV Acts Like We Live in Pyongyang.”
And, in nearby New Jersey and Connecticut, similar hurdles were faced.
But we took the fight to the government officials and even to federal court. And, with the help of petitions, we were able to get “Choose Life” license plates on the road in both states.
It is high time for us to convert EVERY state in America to choose life.
Your signature on this petition - no matter where you live - will help make that happen by placing “Choose Life” license plates on tens of thousands more cars.
For love, for life, for the babies, please SIGN and SHARE our worldwide petition to tell state officials and politicians to stop blocking approval of the “Choose Life” license plate!

Bloomberg spending millions promoting this disgusting policy position aligns with former Vice President Joe Biden’s expected efforts to put his scary abortion agenda into effect.
Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser referred to Biden’s abortion plans as “extreme.” Specifically, Dannenfelser stated that a “Biden-Harris administration could convert every post office and pharmacy into a virtual abortion center — a longtime goal of the abortion industry, which prioritizes profits over health and safety.” She continued: “The threat to unborn children and their mothers is staggering.” Bloomberg’s millions were used to help make such leftist policies a reality.
Bloomberg’s spending to promote abortion is in addition to the $100 million he was slated to spend to try to claim the swing state of Florida for Biden. President Donald Trump would end up winning the state by a 51.2 percent to 47.9 percent margin. This is in addition to the $60 million Bloomberg pledged in August in an attempt to expand the Democrats’ majority in the House of Representatives, which also failed to materialize.
It’s also on top of the more than $1 billion he spent on his failed Democratic presidential campaign, the $18 million he shifted from his failed campaign to the Democratic National Committee and the $35 million pledge he made to fund the data consulting firm Hawkfish to help Democrats.
One thing is clear: Bloomberg’s multimillion-dollar spending on abortion advocacy this year indicates that he wanted to make sure that the slaughter of the unborn continues under a Biden presidency.
