Despite millions spent in support of Democrats and get out the vote efforts, abortion provider Parent Parenthood has been defeated at the ballot box, president and founder of the national pro-life organization Live Action said Wednesday.

"Planned Parenthood has been defeated at the ballot box. Despite the millions Planned Parenthood and its allies spent to elect a pro-abortion president and Congress, voters roundly rejected the abortion agenda of Hillary Clinton and the abortion industry that backed her campaign," Lila Rose said in a statement.

"Because of the pro-life pledges Donald Trump made during the campaign, there is now a clear path to end the public funding that enables the dismemberment, poisoning, or starving to death of one million innocent children each year," Rose said.

"It's critical that we unite to hold Mr. Trump to those pledges to defund Planned Parenthood, to appoint pro-life Supreme Court justices, and to ensure that taxpayers are never forced to fund abortions."

The Planned Parenthood Action Fund donated over $600,000 this election cycle, with 98 percent of that going to Democrats.

It also spent $30 million to effort a get-out-the-vote campaign aimed at millennials in battleground states.

Clinton gave a speech to Planned Parenthood back in June, saying "I will always have your back," according to Life News.

"It's time to put Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry out of business," Rose said. "Earlier this year, for the first time in history, both the House and Senate sent a bill to President Obama to end the forced taxpayer funding of America's largest abortion chain, and Obama rejected it.

"President Trump has pledged to — and must — sign that bill."
