On Sunday Sarah Palin posted a picture on Facebook of Planned Parenthood’s logo next to the Confederate flag. The post asks, “Which symbol killed 90,000 black babies last year?” Then at the bottom it says “#defundPlannedParenthood.”
Palin’s post on Facebook was also a response to the undercover videos exposing Planned Parenthood’s top officials haggling over the price of fetal body parts collected from abortions. The horrifying footage has reignited efforts to defund the abortion giant in Congress and on the state level. So far, the post has garnered over 120,000 likes and has been shared over 75,000 times on Facebook.
Here’s Palin’s image:
The status highlights Planned Parenthood’s efforts to increase revenue by strategically placing their facilities in areas densely populated by minorities.
As LifeNews previously reported, data from the 2010 Census reveals that 78% of their abortion clinics are placed in low-income minority neighborhoods.
Bradley Mattes, the executive director of Life Issues Institute, commented on that data and said, ”These census results clearly show that Planned Parenthood continues to pursue the eugenics philosophy of its founder, Margaret Sanger, who believed that Blacks and the poor were “unfit” to reproduce. She dedicated her life to controlling the population of these “undesirables” by advancing birth control and sterilization in their neighborhoods.”
He added, “Later, the legalization of abortion gave Planned Parenthood an effective and lucrative means for furthering this eugenics agenda. Although Planned Parenthood denies it, these maps show conclusively that they continue to target minorities for abortion.”
She said, “Unable to offer a proper defense for her organization’s shameful behavior, Ms. Richards instead launched attacks against pro-life Americans who are rightfully concerned about what these undercover videos have revealed. She said we want to ‘cut off funding for basic health care for women’ when the truth is that defunding Planned Parenthood would not decrease the overall amount of funding for women’s healthcare. It would instead direct taxpayer dollars to other, more reputable providers like the nearly 1,200 federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) across the country that provide preventive care to low-income and vulnerable populations without performing abortions.”
Later Black added that Richards’ interview only convinced her further that Congress should defund Planned Parenthood immediately. In 2013, Black sponsored H.R. 217, the Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act, which would combat one of Planned Parenthood’s government revenue streams by withholding Title X grants from any health care provider that performs abortions or gives funds to organizations that do. Additionally, last week Black introduced H.R. 3134, the Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2015, along with 80 cosponsors in the House of Representatives. If passed, the bill would stop all Federal funding to Planned Parenthood and its affiliates for a one-year period.
