The election process continues to cause suspense as we face the possible (and likely) election of America’s most pro-abortion presidential ticket. Meanwhile, the Democratic lawyer who pushed for more mail-in voting this election, Marc Elias, has a questionable background including ties to Planned Parenthood.
As of this year, Breitbart reported that Elias “demanded vote-by-mail across the nation, and less restrictive rules” and then encouraged “Democrats in suing election authorities in battleground states to change their voting rules to expand vote-by-mail, extend deadlines, or relax rules to prevent fraud.”
What makes this behavior even less trustworthy is that the law firm Elias is chair of, Perkins Coie’s Political Law Group, represented Planned Parenthood in 2015 after the Center for Medical Progress released the horrific content of the abortion giant admitting the sale of aborted baby body parts, LifeNews reports.
Afterward, Elias himself worked on avid abortion supporter Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign and was said to have assisted Clinton and the Democratic National Committee in hiring research firm Fusion GPS to accuse, then-presidential candidate, Donald Trump of ties to Russia. According to Breitbart, “Fusion GPS, in turn, hired former British spy Christopher Steele, who fabricated sensational claims that helped lead to the FBI surveillance of the Trump campaign, and sustained claims of ‘Russia collusion’ that haunted the Trump administration but were later discredited.”
In 2017, Elias and Perkins Coie’s helped form an online portal for lawyers opposing President Trump called “We the Action.” Both NARAL Pro-Choice America and Planned Parenthood Action Fund were two of several companies providing “the backbone of support and outreach” for the portal, according to Politico.
As the nation waits to learn where our leadership will stand for the next four years, it is concerning that the legal arguments of lawyers that will defend the fetal trafficking of Planned Parenthood can hold any weight in our voting process. It clearly doesn’t reflect the values our country was founded on, namely life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
