Abortion lobby powers the Democratic party money machine

The abortion lobby spends about $40 million each election to help Democrats. EMILY’s List, dedicated to electing pro-choice Democratic women, operates a political action committee (which can directly fund candidates), a 527 committee (which can run only “issue ads”), and a so-called SuperPAC (which use media to support or oppose candidates). In each of the past three election cycles, the group’s PAC and 527 have both been in the top four of those supporting Democrats. The PAC has spent $82 million in that period, while the 527 has spent $35 million, according to data from the Center for Responsive Politics. In 2010, the group created a SuperPAC, which spent $3.6 million, making it the fifth biggest such group in the country.
