Ironic: Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest killer of children, denounces gun violence

planned parenthood tweet

On Saturday, during the March for Our Lives, sponsored by many activist organizations including Planned Parenthood, the nation’s most profitable killer of children tweeted out some terribly ironic statements about the value of life. While the organization has done things like this in the past, the group’s tweet under the #MarchForOurLives hashtag is astonishingly blind:

Everyone has the right to lead a life that is healthy & free from violence. We fight for interconnected issues that affect our patients & communities, including repro health, gun violence prevention, immigration, & racial justice. We’re proud to join today’s .

 

Live Action president and founder Lila Rose responded:

Your abortionists violently tore apart 900 children today, some of them old enough to survive outside the womb. All were helpless.

You took money from parents who were scared and struggling and sold violence and death as a solution to their struggles. https://twitter.com/ppfa/status/977553171307487236  

“96 lives”… vs. almost 900

“Everyone has the right to lead a life that is healthy & free from violence,” the Planned Parenthood tweet reads. And the graphic accompanying the tweet reads in part, “I fight to #EndGunViolence because gun violence claims 96 lives every day in the U.S.” Why, one would almost think that Planned Parenthood actually fought for the right of human beings to live!

But it doesn’t.

In fact, Planned Parenthood’s own statistics show that it kills nearly ten times as many human beings on a daily basis as this tweet says are claimed by gun violence in the same span of time. Live Action News previously noted, “in 2016, Planned Parenthood reported ending the lives of 321,384 preborn children (down from more than 328,000 the previous year), maintaining the organization’s nearly 35 percent nationwide market share of abortions.” That means Planned Parenthood killed around 881 human beings every day, on average.

881 versus 96.

While the death of any human being is tragic, Planned Parenthood’s hypocrisy is showing here. An organization killing ten times the amount of people every day — violently, I might add — really has no right to lament such a loss of life. And yes, these children in the womb are people. They’re human. Scientifically, they can be nothing other than human. Not “almost human.” Not “subhuman.” They’re 100 percent humanfrom the moment of conception. Anyone who argues differently is peddling pro-abortion philosophy, not science.

“Black lives matter”?

“Because Black lives matter,” Planned Parenthood said in the graphic displayed with its tweet. Are we supposed to believe this statement, coming from such an organization?

“Black lives matter” to an organization that was founded by a eugenicist who spoke to the Ku Klux Klan by invitation, who recruited the most racisteugenically-minded board members she could find, whose philosophies actually led to the compulsory sterilization of Black women? (The organization still gives out awards in their eugenicist founder’s name, by the way.)

“Black lives matter” to an organization who was caught on tape happily accepting money to abort Black babies, specifically?

“Black lives matter” to an organization which pushed birth control so heavily to the Black population that multiple Black leaders rose up against it with cries of Black genocide — and in response, the organization recruited Black board members to quell suspicions?

“Black lives matter” to an organization which appears to target the Black community for abortion? Live Action News previously reported:

Planned Parenthood’s targeting of minorities isn’t just happening in New York City. Protecting Black Life has a map showing that, nationwide, Planned Parenthood facilities are in minority-concentrated areas, affecting communities as far removed from New York City as Wichita, Kansas, where last year, as Live Action News reported, Planned Parenthood raised its abortion prices.

Students for Life of America president Kristan Hawkins also noted, “79% of [Planned Parenthood’s] surgical abortion facilities are located within walking distance of African American or Hispanic/Latino neighborhoods.”

No, actions speak louder than words. And Planned Parenthood has killed too many Black babies to pretend that their lives matter.

“50 women are shot to death by intimate partners,” but what about women dying from abortion?

For those of us who know that Planned Parenthood is an organization which routinely returns women to their abusers after their abortions, and which ignores women who die from legal abortion, and which seems to ignore the fact that pregnant women are more at risk for death by homicide than any other cause, sharing this statistic seems like an exercise in selective outrage. Even WebMD acknowledges the disturbing trend of the homicide of pregnant women, writing:

… [W]omen actually are more likely to be murdered than to die from any complications of pregnancy — or from any other cause for that matter.

“We found that homicide was the leading cause of death among women who were pregnant … and accounted for 20% of deaths among that group, compared with 6% of deaths among nonpregnant women of reproductive age,” says author Isabelle Horon, DrPH, from the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, who conducted a study that looked at pregnancy-associated deaths from 1993 to 1998.

And again, why doesn’t Planned Parenthood ever point out how many women die from legal abortion, including at their hands? Why ignore the fact that abortion kills women, too? Or maybe those women just aren’t as important — or at least, not important to the organization’s narrative.

If Planned Parenthood were truly concerned about violence against women, and against “everyone,” as it claims in its head-scratcher of a tweet, then it would stop perpetuating it against women and their babies.

Being Black and pro-life is neither ‘rare’ nor ‘ignorant’

These 15 women prove that being Black and pro-life is neither ‘rare’ nor ‘ignorant’

Michael Harriot, commentator for The Root,recently claimed that being a Black pro-life woman and seeking the protection of innocent Black babies in the womb is “rare.” But is it?

Harriott was writing in response to an interaction between Rep. Steve Cohen (D – Tenn.) and Star Parker, a pro-life Black woman, in which Cohen called Parker “ignorant” after she pointed out the devastation that abortion has wrought in the Black community.

Dem Congressman calls Black women Star Parker “ignorant”

“Since Roe v. Wade was legalized 20 million humans have been killed inside the womb of Black women. And then, on Halloween, Planned Parenthood tweets out that Black women are safest if they abort their child rather than bring it to term,” Parker said during a hearing on the Heartbeat Bill.

Planned Parenthood tweet tells Black women abortion is safer than birth

Parker also exposed the eugenic beliefs of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, a known eugenicist who once gave a speech before the Ku Klux Klan. She also compared the Dred Scott decision, in which the U.S. Supreme Court declared that Black slaves in America were not citizens, to that of Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion in the entire country (essentially declaring that preborn humans are not persons and have no standing as such under the law).

Watch the interaction below:

Shockingly, Michael Harriot, who is also Black, chose to criticize Parker for her comments rather than research her claims about Planned Parenthood’s eugenicist beginnings. Instead, Harriot discounted Parker and other Black pro-life women, claiming that they are “rare”:

Star Parker, founder of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education and a community activist, was asked to testify before the House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice.

Hold up, I think I made a mistake in that previous paragraph. What I meant to type was: Star Parker was asked to testify before the House subcommittee because she is one of the rare black female Republican anti-abortion-rights activists. (No, I will not use the GOP marketing phrase “pro-life.” Who’s not for people living?)

Harriot then echoed Rep. Cohen’s derogatory remarks, saying, “People were shocked to hear him go after a black woman publicly like this, but here is the thing: She is kinda ignorant, though.” (Side note: Imagine for one moment what would happen if Parker were pro-choice and… oh, I don’t know… a white Republican male had called her “ignorant.” Media and social media — and likely Harriot himself — would explode with outrage.)

But Harriot’s claim about the rarity of pro-life Black females is simply wrong. The following Black pro-life women (in both the past and the present) are worth noting (and they weren’t all Republicans, Mr. Harriot):

1) Dr. Mildred Jefferson was the first Black woman to graduate from Harvard Medical School and was co-founder of the National Right to Life Committee. She once stated:

I became a physician in order to help save lives. I am at once a physician, a citizen, and a woman, and I am not willing to stand aside and allow the concept of expendable human lives to turn this great land of ours into just another exclusive reservation where only the perfect, the privileged, and the planned have the right to live.

2) Fannie Lou Hamer was a civil rights activist who helped found the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party. In 1964 she ran for Congress. Hamer was also a victim of eugenic sterilization, a program which Planned Parenthood’s founder (as well as those on her board) advocated.

Fannie Lou Hamer

Ethyl Payne quoted Hamer as calling abortion “black genocide,” writing in The Afro-American, “She was a delegate to the White House Conference on Food and Nutrition… there she spoke out strongly of abortion as a means  of genocide of blacks….”

Journalist Samuel Yette also noted Mrs. Hamer’s views in The Afro American – Apr 2, 1977, quoting her as saying, “It is still a society in which an injured man must show his ability to pay before getting hospital services, but his daughter or wife can be aborted or fed birth control pills, at public expense….” Yette then recounted how Hamer blasted conference organizers: “She responded with shock and outrage at the deception. “I didn’t come to talk about birth control,” she protested. “I came here to get some food to feed poor, hungry people. Where are they carrying on that kind of talk?”

A 1969 article published by the Free-Lance Star quotes Hamer as denouncing voluntary abortion as “legalized murder,” saying she “made it clear that she “regards it part of a comprehensive white man’s plot to exterminate the black population of the United States.”

Author Kay Mills quoted Hamer in her book as being vehemently against abortion. “Once Black women were bought as slaves because they were good breeders,” Hamer said. “Now they talk about birth control and abortion for blacks. If they’d been talking that way when my mother was bearing children, I wouldn’t be here now.”

Elaine Riddick

3) Elaine Riddick is a staunch pro-life advocate and vocal critic of Planned Parenthood. She was a victim of eugenic sterilization who led a successful crusade in North Carolina to gain reparations for the men and women (mostly Black) who were forcefully sterilized.

That NC eugenics program was supported by Margaret Sanger’s financier, Clarence Gamble, a director of Sanger’s American Birth Control League (which later changed its name to Planned Parenthood).

In 1947, Gamble called for the expansion of North Carolina’s state sterilization program, saying that for every feeble minded person sterilized, 40 more were polluting and degrading the bloodlines of future generation with their defective genes.

Research from North Carolina’s Winston-Salem Journal reveals a long history of abuses in that state’s sterilization program — abuses that Gamble consistently glossed over. According to the Journal, “Gamble wanted sterilizations to increase rather than decrease, and increase they did.”

Riddick testified before the North Carolina State Legislature about her experience, tearfully saying, “They cut me open like I was a hog.” She told lawmakers that her only crime was being poor, Black, and from a bad home environment. Riddick’s horrific story was recounted in the documentary Maafa21, which chronicles the history of eugenics and the founding of Planned Parenthood:

4) Dr. Alveda King is the niece of civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr., and Director of Civil Rights for the Unborn for Priests for Life:

5) LaVern Tolbert is a former Board member of Planned Parenthood who now opposes their agenda:

7) Day Gardner is president of the National Black Pro-Life Union:

8) Judge Cheryl Allen is a Superior Court judge for the state of Pennsylvania. She has said, “Most people tend to believe that Planned Parenthood is in the African American Community to help, but they are not there to help, they are there to make abortion more accessible to black people….” (Source: Interview on His Place TV)

Judge Cheryl Lynn Allen

9) Rep. Mia Love is the first Black Republican female elected to the U.S. Congress from the state of Utah:

10)Barbara Howard is the Florida State chairwoman for the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE). She has stated,.  “Recently, some black preachers finally came out not against abortion per se, but merely against the location of Planned Parenthood centers in black communities. It seems the murder of blacks is only a consideration for black preachers or other leaders when they are killed by white or Hispanic cops…. So who will stop the cold-blooded murder of millions of unborn black children?”

Barbara Howard

11) Rep. June Franklin (D-Iowa) is the only African American representative in the Iowa legislature, and said in 1971, “Proponents… have argued this bill is for blacks and the poor who want abortions and can’t afford one. This is the phoniest and most preposterous argument of all. Because I represent the inner-city where the majority of blacks and poor live and I challenge anyone here to show me a waiting line of either blacks or poor whites who are wanting an abortion.”

Rep. June Franklin (image Maafa21)

12) Dr Ashley Harrell of Black People Against Abortion:

13) Catherine Davis is a founding member of the National Black Prolife Coalition:

14) Dr. Freda M. Bush is an OBGYN and president of the Medical Institute for Sexual Health:

15) Obianuju Ekeocha, founder and president of Culture of Life Africa:

All the Black pro-life women from both political parties would make an exceedingly long list — and the truth is that the pro-abortion media makes little effort to highlight them.

Tragically, the real “ignorance” here is not found in those who denounce abortion’s impact on the Black community. It is found among members of the media who imply that Black pro-life women are “rare.” It just simply is not true.

Disabled women disturbed by abortion language while Planned Parenthood pretends to care

Posted in Disability, Planned Parenthood and discrimination, Planned Parenthood and Eugenics, Planned Parenthood Disabled Persons, Planned Parenthood Hypocrisy with tags , , , , , , , , on December 4, 2014 by saynsumthn

If I use the word hypocrisy again in a blog about Planned Parenthood, please bare with me.

Today, I came across this tweet from the abortion on demand for any reason especially disability organization, Planned Parenthood.

Imagine an organization which embraces killing babies for any reason – especially “health” reasons suggesting one listens to what disabled women are saying – the very people they would work to kill in the womb.

PP Tweet Disabled Women

Planned Parenthood’s tweet linked to this Daily Beast article:

PP Article Disabled

The article rightly claims that the feminist movement or shall I say the pro-abortion feminist movement is leaving disabled women behind.

From the article, “When Stephanie Woodward blogged about #YesAllWomen, she was excited to join the movement and share her own life experiences as a woman with a disability. She never expected her post to spawn hostile messages from activists scolding Woodward for trying to “detract from the real issue” and instead make it about disability.”

Author Elizabeth Heideman makes this observation for which I agree, “But when it’s not physical accessibility, it’s a lack of empathy or understanding that excludes disabled women.”

Feminist blogger, Elsa S. Henry, tells Heideman that disabled feminists are troubled by the language they hear from abortion supporter, “Every time that we see abortion policies in the news, someone inevitably brings up the fact that abortion should be legal so that people can abort their disabled babies,” Henry says.

BINGO!

That is where Planned Parenthood’s hypocrisy enters. As recently as last year, Planned Parenthood uploaded a series of videos promoting abortions on imperfect or seriously disabled unborn children.

In fact, Planned Parenthood was once accused by their own staff of firing a woman because of her disabilities (read here) Planned Parenthood of Central Washington was ordered to pay the former employee more than $106,000 in damages.

Her lawsuit claimed that Planned Parenthood fired her from her job as a regional manager after she was diagnosed with degenerative arthritis in her neck and back that required ongoing medical treatment.

ABORT THEM THEN LET THEM DIE

If an unborn child brought to Planned Parenthood to be executed has the tenacity to survive, Planned Parenthood indicated they would just leave them to die.

Alisa Laport Snow, a lobbyist representing the Florida Alliance of Planned Parenthood Affiliates, once testified that Planned Parenthood believes the decision to kill a baby who survived an abortion should be left up to the woman seeking and her abortion doctor.

We believe that any decision that’s made should be left up to the woman, her family, and the physician,” said the Planned Parenthood lobbyist.

This is not surprising, given that Planned Parenthood’s prez could not even tell you when life begins.

Cecile Richards who earns a six digit salary killing babies as president of Planned Parenthood was asked by Fusion’s Jorge Ramos when life begins.

This is a question that I think will be debated through the centuries…it is not something that I feel is really part of this conversation. I think every woman has to make their own decisions.”

When asked why it is so controversial for her to say when she thinks life starts, Cecile Richards responded, “Yeah, well, I don’t know if it is controversial . I don’t think its really relevant to the conversation. But for me, I’m a mother of three children. For me, life began when I delivered them…”

The entire concept of killing off the weak, disabled, or feebleminded came out of the eugenics movement which Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger was a member.

In fact, Planned Parenthood’s “Every Child a Wanted Child” slogan originated in Eugenics as I detail here. Planned Parenthood’s eugenics roots date back to Sanger who was a member of the American Eugenics Society, however, they remained connected to that movement long after Sanger was out of the picture. (details here)

As disability advocate, Deborah Geesling points out,”Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, is the antithesis of care for disabled. I am keenly aware of her views on the “feeble minded” and what she considers the greatest sin.”

Geesling goes on to quote Sanger who once told news anchor Mike Wallace that the greatest sin was to bring essentially disabled children into the world, “I think the greatest sin in the world is bringing children into the world, that have disease from their parents, that have no chance in the world to be a human being, practically; delinquents, prisoners, all sorts of things just marked when they’re born. That to me is the greatest sin people can commit.

Today, proponents of abortion say child killing in the womb needs to be publicly funded partly because a disabled child will cost taxpayers money.

Listen to Planned Parenthood’s research arm, The Guttmacher Institute, “If public funds are not available to pay for abortions, a far greater amount of money will be spent to provide maternity care,medical care for the infant…and nutritional assistance to women on Medicaid”. (AbortionandWomen’sHealth)

Heideman was correct to point out the hesitation disabled women have to a radically pro-abortion feminist movement. One can only hope they will continue to distance themselves from the abortion lobby and their to provider, Planned Parenthood.

HYPOCRISY? Planned Parenthood prez tweets support for pregnant workers

Posted in Cecile Richards, NARAL, Planned Parenthood Tweet with tags , , , , , , , , , on December 3, 2014 by saynsumthn

Exactly how much hypocrisy are we to take from an organization which slaughters babies in the womb?

Days ago, Planned Parenthood used twitter to send messages of support to the family of Michael Brown in Ferguson and pretended that BlackLivesMatter to them despite their overt racist and eugenics history. (read here)

Today, abortion giant Planned Parenthood’s president, Cecile Richards tweeted her support for pregnant workers.

cecile Richards Pregnant Workers

Then NARAL followed up with this tweet:

NARAL Pregnant workers abortion

How noble of the promoters of abortion to send out such a “caring” message. That is until you realize they are for killing the babies these workers carry for any reason at any stage of pregnancy using abortion.

In addition, neither Planned Parenthood’s head nor NARAL ever tweeted her support of the family of one pregnant women whom Planned Parenthood left bleeding after an abortion they performed on her.

Tonya Reaves _3399880429594703002_n

Her name was Tonya Reaves.

She was a 24 year-old Black woman who came to Cecile Richard’s Chicago clinic.

She was left inside Planed Parenthood bleeding for five hours before being transported to the hospital where she later died.

As far as NARAL, Cecile Richards and Planned Parenthood is concerned, this dead formerly pregnant Black woman never existed !

As for their tweets, someone please pass the Barf bag!

Planned Parenthood tweets: world fixates on Ebola, state’s abortion clinics closing daily

Posted in Planned Parenthood Ebola with tags , , , , , on October 13, 2014 by saynsumthn

A shocking tweet from abortion giant Planned Parenthood shows their fixation on abortions.

In light of a possible Ebola scare or outbreak inside the United States, Planned Parenthood has tweeted, “While the world fixates on a single Ebola case, the state’s abortion clinics are closing daily.”

Of course by now, it is two Ebola cases…but…back to the tweet:

PP Ebola Tweet

It was a link to a story by the New York Observer called, “The other healthcare crisis,” and subtitled, “While the world fixates on a single Ebola case, the state’s abortion clinics are closing daily.”

Seriously- Ebola and abortion are being compared on the same level?

Lest you think Planned Parenthood is not concerned about Ebola you would be wrong.

The population control organization has recently bemoaned that in Africa Ebola is limiting “reproductive health care services.”

International Planned Parenthood Federation or IPPF issued a press release stating that they will be assisting Ebola victims in their affected African countries.

To improve health-seeking practices for Ebola prevention, including observance of universal precautions in the affected countries, the IPPF Africa Regional Office is providing financial and technical support to its Member Associations in Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone,” their statement begins.

IPPF Ebola Press Release PP

IPPF has sent Planned Parenthood Association of Liberia ( PPAL) $40,050 and $22,278 to the Planned Parenthood Association of Sierra Leone to established hand-washing sites in all its offices and clinics for use by their staff, volunteers and clients.

In addition they used the money to purchase and distributed protective gear and sanitary and disinfectant commodities to their clinic staff and community based service providers.

???????????????????????????????

But, offering assistance for Ebola is a small part of what they focus on. A majority of IPPF’s focus is population control.

In fact, IPPF writes on their website that in 2013, they pushed comprehensive abortion care activities in 21 sub-Saharan Africa countries. They include Kenya, Ethiopia, Cameroun, Burkina Faso, Ghana, Nigeria, Mali, Guinea Conakry, Zambia, Mozambique, Rwanda, Tanzania, Burundi, Cote d’Ivoire, Malawi, Swaziland, Benin, Uganda, Senegal and Democratic Republic of Congo.

We target rural, urban and peri-urban women and girls from low income and the marginalised groups, as well as college/university students. In 2012, 65 per cent of all comprehensive abortion care clients served in the Planned Parenthood Association of Ghana Cape Coast Clinic was under 25 years old,” the abortion giant brags.

IPPF Targets Abortion Africa

In Liberia alone PPAL delivered 899,476 contraceptive services and 2,379 abortion Care services to the women in 2013.

PPAL partners with population control organizations like, the Population Council and UNFPA, and others.

The press release continues, “PPAL is conducting a series of awareness campaigns in highly affected counties including Montserrado, Bong, Lofa, Margibi, Grand Gedeh and River Gee.

“This is through its peer educators, staff and various county health teams, national taskforce and other partners (BMZ, UNFPA and IRC).

“PPAL is providing personal hygiene kits to peer educators and SoS mentors among others across the country. The Association has also outfitted all its facilities with hygiene and sanitary materials including hand washing buckets with faucet, disinfectants (chlorine, clorox, dettol), hand soap, hand sanitizers and gloves among others.

IPPF Ebola Africa 04393799491174727_o

Authorities have recruited Planned Parenthood to support them in tracing and referring suspected Ebola cases in their communities to treatment centers and have distributed over 3,000 flyers with Ebola message to school youths.

But, what’s really on the mind of Planned Parenthood is how Ebola is affecting their ability to pass out birth control or perform abortions.

As IPPF’s press release states that, “Ebola has affected the provision of sexual and reproductive health and services.”

Reproductive health is code for abortion.

IPPF what we do abortion

Yes, despite horrific Ebola deaths, Planned Parenthood is concerned that abortion and birth control services continue to be dispersed.

In fact, IPPF is determined to push through despite Ebola ravaging these countries and they even brag that in Lofa County, while they are involved with the Ebola Virus disease (EVD) sensitization its peer educators are still carrying out, “ one-on-one sensitization on family planning and referring young people to clinics and hospitals for family planning and other reproductive health services.”
