The American forefathers likely never thought their fight for independence would be perverted someday by people advocating for the killing of unborn babies.

Later this week, Planned Parenthood abortion activists plan to march in the annual Independence Day parade in Pitkin County, Colorado, according to The Aspen Times.

“On the Fourth of July, Republicans, Democrats and Independents, adults and children are all welcome to march with us under the banner of Planned Parenthood,” Kathryn Rabinow, Barbara Gold, Liz Siegel and Susan Sherwin wrote in a letter to the editor of the paper.

They invited people to come carrying signs supporting the abortion chain and march in the parade with them under a large blue and white Planned Parenthood sign.

Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in America. According to its own annual reports, it does about 330,000 abortions every year – about one third of all abortions in the U.S.

The letter-writers described the billion-dollar abortion group as an organization that “serves women (and men) — improving their lives and their health and educating their families.”

However, Planned Parenthood primarily does abortions. Its CEO Leana Wen recently admitted that abortions are their “core mission.”

They continued, “We are inspired by many pioneers and courageous people who preceded us and we are motivated by both federal and state administrations and movements that do not want to permit women to decide what is best for them and their families and that veto the delivery of affordable health care to women.”

Today in America, women enjoy more rights and freedoms than ever before. It is difficult to imagine that the American founders believed those freedoms should include the choice to kill a defenseless baby in the womb – the woman’s own child. The first American feminists strongly opposed abortion, believing it was not about women’s freedom or rights but about exploitation and the destruction of family.

Independence Day should be centered around celebrating the freedoms of all Americans, including babies in the womb. Rather than marching for more abortions, Americans should march to ensure unborn babies once again are guaranteed the same rights and freedoms as those who are born.
