A national civil rights and violence debate is brewing because of the tenuous situation in Ferguson, Missouri. But the president of the Planned Parenthood abortion business isn’t letting an opportunity to push her pro-abortion agenda go to waste.

LifeNews blogger Ryan Bomberger has more on Cecile Richards’ latest antics:

cecilerichards23And to add more craziness to chaos, Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards, injected herself into the Ferguson tragedy. Keep in mind, this is someone who derives her $583,000 annual salary from the nation’s largest abortion chain whose home city, NYC, aborts more black babies than are born alive.

On Facebook she lamented: “Heartbroken by the event unfolding in #Ferguson. A parent’s right to raise their child in love and safety, and to dream that their child will have every opportunity in the world to grow into a fiercely independent adult is a fundamental issue of reproductive justice.”

Touching if it weren’t from the Abortionist-in-Chief. “Reproductive Justice” is all about hurting and killing a child in the womb. And yet this grossly misguided “movement”, bolstered by Planned Parenthood, thinks that people will somehow care for life, better, once outside of the womb. Richards’ post included ironic artwork from a pro-abortion project to repeal the prolife Hyde Amendment (denying taxpayer dollars to fund abortion) declaring: “You deserve to parent your child without fear that he or she will be hurt or killed. Freedom from violence is reproductive justice.”

Abortion is violent. Ferguson is the type of community and situation that pro-abortion activists claim no child should have to grow up in. So, Planned Parenthood has been trying to eliminate those lives for decades with its abortion clinic dominance (79 percent) in predominantly black areas. This has led to abortion becoming the number one killer (over 363,000 annually) in the black community—not “unarmed” deaths caused by police.

Michael Brown didn’t need to die. But like Trayvon Martin, his death is being exploited for a bigger agenda of distraction and division.

Liberals, black and white, promote violence in the womb and outside of it. In Ferguson, they are stoking racial fires in the form of resentment and riots that do nothing but steal hope and possibility from the black community.
