Nonprofit organization Planned Parenthood has announced it is making significant investments in the 2020 elections to elect abortion-rights candidates and "defeat" President Donald Trump.

Planned Parenthood’s political wing said it would spend $45 million backing candidates who support abortion rights in elections, ranging from the statehouse level to the White House.

“Planned Parenthood Votes and Planned Parenthood advocacy and political organizations are launching their largest-ever electoral effort for the 2020 cycle. We'll fight for our rights and freedoms down the ballot in 2020,” the organization tweeted.

But the group said its top priority in 2020 is to defeat Trump.

Other priorities include helping Democrats reclaim control of the GOP-controlled Senate, and holding the Democratic majority in the House of Representatives.

According to a report from Fox News: The group will target roughly 5 million voters across the country, with the spotlight on nine key swing states: Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Michigan, Minnesota, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.

They add that their campaign will include digital, television and radio ads as well as direct mail. They say they’ll start voter canvassing next year.

Kelley Robinson, executive director of the Planned Parenthood Votes super PAC, emphasized in a statement that “next November, our very rights and freedoms will be on the ballot."

Already, we’ve seen Trump, and his buddies in Congress and state legislatures do everything they can to strip us of our rights and access to health care.

Who we elect will determine our access to birth control, cancer screenings, sex education, abortion access, and more.”

Planned Parenthood has long been in the cross-hairs of the anti-abortion movement.

And in an interview with NPR – which first reported the news – Robinson said that a "coordinated level of attack" from abortion-rights opponents has “one goal: to undermine and to gut Roe v. Wade."

Planned Parenthood has long been in the cross-hairs of the anti-abortion movement.

Since the election of Trump, the group was on the losing end of the battle to prevent the confirmation of Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh – which tilted the high court to the right.

The Supreme Court announced last week that they'll take up their first abortion case since Kavanaugh's confirmation.

They were also on the losing end of a fight over family planning federal funding while battling early-abortion bans passed by multiple states this year.

In August, the group announced it was pulling out of the Title X federal family planning program rather than abide by a new Trump administration rule prohibiting participants from referring patients for abortions.

Pro-life groups heralded the abrupt decision as a significant victory -- and one that signaled that Planned Parenthood, contrary to its claims, is primarily an abortion provider, not a health care organization.

In response to the latest campaign spending announcement, March for Life President Jeanne Mancini said in a statement:

“At its essence, Planned Parenthood is a political advocacy group with a focus on expanding abortion. It is no surprise that the abortion corporation is spending $45 million in battleground states because this Administration has implemented a pro-life agenda in many areas ... It is unfair to force Americans to subsidize through their tax dollars this partisan political organization bent on electing pro-abortion politicians.”
