Planned Parenthood Action Fund Endorsed Hillary Clinton, but Some Supporters Are ‘Feeling the Bern’

Planned Parenthood Action Fund, the advocacy arm of the nation’s largest abortion provider, may have just endorsed Hillary Clinton for president, but many of their supporters are “feeling the bern.”

Since the organization announced it would endorse Clinton, Planned Parenthood Action Fund’s social media pages have been inundated with messages from supporters of Clinton’s chief rival for the Democratic presidential nomination, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Some of  the organization’s supporters questioned making an endorsement at all since the Democratic candidates hold similar positions on abortion and Planned Parenthood’s other legislative goals. Some have said they will no longer donate.

Both Clinton and Sanders have a 100 percent rating from Planned Parenthood Action Fund scorecard (which rates members of Congress). The organization has also called Democratic presidential candidate former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley “a rock star advocate for reproductive health and rights — he’s in our corner on all of our priorities.”

Planned Parenthood Action Fund’s endorsement of Clinton was its first in a presidential primary.
