In 2016, Indiana became the second state to ban abortions based on disability, sex, or race. Ohio followed suit in December of 2017, and Planned Parenthood is now suing — solely so they can continue to abort preborn babies who are the “wrong” sex or race, or who have been diagnosed prenatally with a disability.
Now, the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals will hear the case, which was filed by the ACLU of Indiana for Planned Parenthood. The ACLU and Planned Parenthood are likewise suing the state of Ohio. Planned Parenthood and the ACLU argue that these bans are unconstitutional, but the reality is seemingly far more nefarious.
Take abortions based on race, for example. Planned Parenthood and racism go hand-in-hand, starting with its founding. Margaret Sanger, Planned Parenthood’s founder, was a known eugenicist — and in her Negro Project, spoke of bringing on board members of the clergy in the Black community to help bring about her organization’s agenda: population control — specifically among certain people groups. Live Action News’ Carole Novielli previously wrote:
In a personal letter to Katharine Dexter McCormick in 1950, Sanger called for “a simple, cheap, safe contraceptive to be used in poverty stricken slums, jungles, and among the most ignorant people.”
But, Sanger added, “Even this will not be sufficient, because I believe that now, immediately, there should be national sterilization for certain dysgenic types of our population who are being encouraged to breed and would die out were the government not feeding them.”
That legacy lives on today, as Planned Parenthood pressures black women to be sterilized, places a disproportionate number of their facilities in minority neighborhoods, and then jacks up their prices.
A Live Action investigation also found that Planned Parenthood is all too happy to accept racially-motivated donations.
This problem is at its most extreme in New York City, where most babies aborted are either black or Hispanic, and more black babies are aborted than are born. This is even more disturbing when you realize that Planned Parenthood in New York City performs abortions past the point of viability.
Planned Parenthood was also caught in Live Action investigations willing to perform abortions based solely on the sex of the baby, which has killed over 100 million girls around the world.
And there’s no questioning that babies with disabilities, like Down syndrome, are frequently targeted for abortion. Expectant mothers are overwhelmingly given inaccurate and out-of-date information, given the diagnosis in a negative way, and then pressured to have abortions.
It’s clear that these bans are necessary, and also that Planned Parenthood has a vested interest in seeing them overturned. After all, Planned Parenthood is an abortion corporation, concerned with profit above all else. And they’ll exploit whoever they have to if it’s necessary… which is why these bans must be upheld.
