REPORT: Liberal ‘civil war’ declared between abortion provider and union


As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by FreeBeacon:

Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains is fighting a unionization attempt from Service Employees International Union, despite the labor giant’s emphatic support for the nation’s largest abortion provider.

In November the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), the agency in charge of union elections and settling workplace disputes, granted SEIU Local 105’s petition to hold an election for joining the union at several abortion clinics in Colorado. Planned Parenthood objected to the organization campaign and appealed to the Republican-controlled board. It disputed the fact that SEIU was attempting to organize a micro-unit and improperly excluded Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains (PPRM) clinics in Nevada and New Mexico in an effort to tilt the scales of the vote.

The article goes on to state the following:

The board sided with Planned Parenthood in a 2-1 decision. Trump appointees Marvin Kaplan and William Emanuel said the unit should be reevaluated.

The dispute represents a rift between two of the key players in the Democratic Party. The two groups have been allies in the past. SEIU has given Planned Parenthood $190,000 since 2007 in payments classified as political activities or “contributions, gifts, and grants,” according to federal labor filings. Planned Parenthood’s political arm, meanwhile, sent more than $290,000 to SEIU councils in Missouri and Washington State during that time. SEIU president Mary Kay Henry defended Planned Parenthood after undercover videos showed clinic workers candidly discussing the sale of baby body parts.
