A director of an affiliate of the Planned Parenthood abortion business has been forced to resign after threatening a black pro-life state legislator in Louisiana — saying she wanted someone to “kick her a–.”

katrinajacksonPlanned Parenthood Gulf Coast has asked Director Melissa Flournoy to resign after making the disparaging remarks about a pro-life Democrat, Rep. Katrina Jackson, (pictured right) who sponsored legislation that may result in shutting down abortion clinics that can’t comply with new state health and safety laws.

According to a letter posted online by an abortion advocate, Flournoy’s threatening comments came during a public event to promote abortion:

Melissa Flournoy (pictured below right), Louisiana Director of Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, was the first person to speak. She proceeded to rudely derail the entire conversation.

You started by introducing yourself as the Louisiana State director of Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast. After that, you proceeded to ask Deon what she could “do about Katrina.” Though you didn’t pause to give context, you were talking about Katrina Jackson, the state representative out of Monroe, Louisiana who penned HB388. The bill effectively shuts down some of the abortion providers here in Louisiana. You complained about the representative’s unwillingness to hear your pleas, and jokingly said that you wanted to “put (Deon) into a ring and let you kick her ass!” Didn’t we JUST get done talking about how hurtful it is for black women to constantly be profiled as dangerous? Violent? Subhuman? How is this helpful?

Melaney A. Linton, President & CEO, Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, wrote: “Melissa Flournoy, the Louisiana State Director, made comments and conducted herself in a manner not at all reflective of Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast’s and Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s values and beliefs. This is absolutely unacceptable and I will take immediate action to address this situation.  On behalf of Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, I offer my sincerest apology to you and others who were in attendance.”

Flourney, on August 15th, admitted on Faebook she was no longer employed at the abortion business.

On May 22nd, HB 388, the Unsafe Abortion Protection Act, passed the Louisiana Legislature by overwhelming, bipartisan margins. HB 388 is critical for Louisiana because women are often harmed by sloppy abortionists who are more interested in the $450 they receive from each abortion, than the health and safety of their patient.

HB 388 requires abortionists to attain admitting privileges within 30 miles of their facility, clarifies that the “Women’s Right to Know” law applies to chemical, as well as surgical abortions, and requires doctors who perform more than five abortions a year to maintain proper licensing.

The author of the bill, Rep. Katrina Jackson, was heavily criticized for her leadership and determination to get the legislation passed. This is because she is a Democratic, African American woman who is proudly pro-life.
