PA Dems Push Wagner on Planned Parenthood


Krueger-Brankey and DeanThe Pennsylvania Democratic Party is focusing its messaging against gubernatorial candidate and state Senator Scott Wagner (R-York) on his support for Senate Bills 3 and 300.  

On a press call this morning with state Representatives Leanne Krueger-Braneky (D-Delaware) and Madeleine Dean (D-Montgomery) called out Wagner for his support of the bills.

SB3 set the limit for abortions at 20 weeks, shortening the amount of time from 24 weeks under current law.  SB300 would put organizations such as Planned Parenthood at the bottom of the priority list to receive state funds.  

“No politician should play politics with with women’s healthcare,” Krueger-Braneky said during the call.  

“These bills are for political gain, and have nothing to do with healthcare,” Dean added.  

Both Krueger-Braneky and Dean took issue with the path the two bills are taking to get to the floor.  SB3 was voted on in the Judiciary Committee first, and SB300 was voted on in the Finance Committee.  Krueger-Braneky and Dean argued that the bills should have been voted on in the Health Committee.  

“Scott Wagner ought to be ashamed of himself for pushing legislation that criminalizes abortion without any input from the public or the medical community and working to defund Planned Parenthood,” Pa. Dems Communications Director Beth Melena said in a release after the call.  

The Pa. Dems are pushing to make Wagner look out of touch with women voters, and to counter his message of being a Harrisburg outsider.  Repeatedly in the release, and in all its messaging against Wagner, they refer to him as a “Harrisburg insider.”

PoliticsPA has reached out to the Wagner campaign for comment.

    Soccer Mama: You should probably rethink your party registration. You’d vote for Rendell again? A man that made state employees (including the police that put their lives in danger every day) go without a pay for a month? The same man that took money from the poorest citizens? He was a politician out for himself and a shame to the Democratic party. I don’t really think he was a democrat and I’m not sure you are either, if he’s what you judge to be a democrat.

    Planned Parenthood provides much needed services and I find the fact that its funding is even debated appalling. If anything, abortion is a huge tax saver. Think of the money the government is saving by not paying for a lifetime of welfare benefits. Religious zealots just want to impose their religious and moral views on government. I’m with DD – I wish my tax dollars were spent on abortions too.

  3. Barricks Einwohner says:

    I believe the Reading Hospital and Medical Center is picketed every Sunday because of the services provided there. Does anyone know what the outcome was of the Wagner employee who was killed on the job?

  4. truthiness says:

    Fetus seems premature in his condemnation of PP.

  5. truthiness says:

    DD: Thanks for an intelligent and informative response. Of course, it won’t be acceptable to most of the rightwing nuts here, not including Seneca’s mom who really did want an abortion but had to bear this dumb bastard instead.

    Soccer Mom must be Stephanie because they seem equally retarded.

  6. David Diano says:

    Fetus-

    The “legitimate” hospitals won’t do it because of pressure from the anti-abortion protesters. I think they should not only perform abortions, but do it for free. I’d be happy to subsidize that with my taxes.

    The abortions represent 3% of the services, not revenue. Most of the services are for cancer screenings, contraception, blood tests for STD diseases, dealing with STDs, help with pre-natal care, etc.

    Truth-
    First of all, for the case you sited the “fraud” was Medicaid fraud, not welfare fraud. Second, it was for billing for services either not performed or not deemed medically necessary. They didn’t commit $5.5 billion in fraud, and the settlement appears to be compensation for the amount of alleged fraud plus penalties.

    Overall, it appears no different than any “regular” hospitals committing insurance fraud. It’s not in anyway indicative of Planned Parenthood elsewhere, nor does it involve their abortion services.

    I don’t have a WSJ subscription to read their version, but this is the official government statement:
    http://www.justice.gov/usao-edtx/pr/planned-parenthood-pays-43-million-settle-allegations-unnecessary-medical-care

  7. Truth says:

    DD – I trust that the Wall Street Journal is a good enough source for you? 8/16/13. The article is behind a subscription firewall but you can grab the headline and blurb online. Headline: Planned Parenthood settles in fraud case. You can see they paid $4.3 million to settle charges the max penalty for which is $5.5 billion, granted no one gets hit with the max

  8. Fetus says:

    David Diano….so taxpayers should subsidize a politically charged group, founded by a raging eugenicist, to perform a “service” that legitimate hospitals won’t even do? Yeah, sure! And by the way, abortion accounts for roughly half of Planned Parenthood’s revenue, not the 3% you imply.

  9. David Diano says:

    Truth-
    Regular hospitals don’t want to provide abortion services and generally aren’t experienced enough. But, 97% of Planned Parenthood’s other service aren’t abortion and are a better, safer, cheaper and more convenient option for the many women they help.

    Your claim of them avoiding $5.5 billion in welfare fraud with a $4.3 million payout (less than 1/10th cent on the dollar) is ridiculous on it’s face. Please provide link from a LEGITIMATE news or court/gov source.

    Seneca-
    Your mom must still be trying to get an abortion. Government funds don’t pay for abortions through Planned Parenthood (though I wish they did, as it’s better use of my tax dollars to help these women than spending it on bombs that kill innocent women and children). The “massive input” that Wagner has gotten is that the majority of PA women want Planned Parenthood, and Wagner is ignoring that input.

    Catherine-
    Dems are working hard to get judges elected. Right now, it’s the primaries so you aren’t seeing a lot of ads.

    Stephanie-
    Always nice to hear from the Stepford Wives or the hopeful ruling class of the Republic of Gilead.

    Soccer Mama-
    Wagner is a terrible person, so factor that in when “voting for the person”. Or, think about voting for the policy. Wagner has terrible policies.

  10. Soccer Mama says:

    I am registered Democratic, but I vote the person and not the party. I didn’t vote for Hillary just because she is a woman and I am not going to be voting for Tom Wolf. If Rendell was running again he’d have been my vote but things have been going down hill since he left

  11. Stephanie says:

    I’m a woman and I’m ok with Scott Wagner. Planned Parenthood is a criminal organization.

  12. Truth says:

    Planned Parenthood is fraudulent. They raked in a $130 million profit last year. They were facing welfare fraud charges totaling $5.5 BILLION but paid the government $4.3 million to settle. Some clinics in PA have failed to report the statutory rape of numerous girls. By all means, re-prioritize tax dollars to true public health entities that aren’t obsessed with abortion as a revenue generator.

  13. Jodi says:

    Seneca, if Mr Wagner WERE in touch with Pennsylvanians, then he would know that the large majority support Planned Parenthood. He is NOT in touch. Thank you, PA Democratic Party for highlighting this important issue

  14. the answer desk says:

    Kimberly–No, they are a fraud.

  15. the answer desk says:

    Seneca—LMAO.

  16. Kimberly says:

    Good for Scott Wagner. Senate Bill 300 will continue to provide $ for women’s health care – not one cent is being cut. However, more may now go to Community Health Centers which provide true comprehensive services. Centers that provide STD testing, birth control, pg tests, PRENATAL CARE, Postnatal Care, and pediatric care for the baby. These centers care for women before pregnancy, during pregnancy and then both mom and baby after pregnancy.

  17. Catherine says:

    Why aren’t the PA Dems working to get the Judges elected? This is a very important election. The Dems need all the Democratic Judges Elected. Casey and Wolf’s election isn’t until 2018. I see nothing from the PA Democratic Party promoting the Judges -what’s the story? Maybe it is true that the Democratic Party is actually Wolf’s Campaign and Casey is along for the ride. Good luck to both of them since Hillary lost Pennsylvania and the same two that lost Pennsylvania are running Wolf’s camgaign.

  18. Seneca says:

    Shame on the Pennsylvania Democratic Party. This is not about “womens healthcare”. It is about pro- and anti-abortion politics. They are deliberately clouding the issue.

    Their canard: “Scott Wagner ought to be ashamed of himself for pushing legislation that criminalizes abortion without any input from the public or the medical community and working to defund Planned Parenthood.” Wagner, as a member of Pennsylvania Senate and the Pennsylvania Republican Party, has over the years gotten massive input from the public on abortion issues, including those connected with the medical aspects of the issue. He is well in touch with the issue.
