A Planned Parenthood activist appearing on a panel about the Zika virus coming to the United States says women who are pregnant and contract the virus ought to be able to abort their potentially disabled baby. The abortion activists called killing such babies a “human right.”

Here’s more from CNS News and video of the remarks:

Planned Parenthood is using the Zika virus to appeal for taxpayer-financed abortions.

At an event Tuesday in Washington, D.C., a director at the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Chloe Cooney, said, “Zika has made a long-standing public health crisis impossible to ignore and demonstrates the critical need of government support for sexual and reproductive health care.” The comments were first reported by CNS News.

“The ability to decide if and when to have children is basic health care, but it’s a basic human right as wel,” Cooney said, “And yet it’s not realized for so many women across the region, which this outbreak is making so crystal clear.”
