Since Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973 over 50 million abortions have been performed in the United States. According to the CDC’s most recent date in 2009 there were around 800,000 abortions performed in our country. Nearly 40% of those abortions take place at Planned Parenthood, which made over $100 million in abortion sales and earned $85 million in profits according to their 2011-2012 annual report. Most of those abortions took place in inner cities, targeting black and hispanic children. Yet we’re not allowed to discuss Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, and her racism. We’re supposed to bury our head and pretend abortion is about women’s health. In reality, it’s about murder and racism.
The conservative media was outraged over the Kermit Gosnell trial. Gosnell was ultimately convicted of murdering several babies born via botched abortions. He snapped their necks shortly after birth. Conservatives weren’t just outraged over the murdering of botched aborted babies. We understood that had these babies still been in the womb Planned Parenthood would defend to the death the right of Gosnell to snap their necks. No matter how much the left wants to pretend that an unborn baby (which the media arrogantly dismisses as a “fetus”) is just a clump of cells, the reality is that it’s a separate and distinct human life.
From the founding of Planned Parenthood the goal was to reduce the number of minorities and other “undesirables.” Sanger and the Eugenics crowd of the early 20th century made that abundantly clear. It should come as no surprise that most abortion clinics are in minority neighborhoods. Gosnell’s clients were almost all black. In New York City, 41% of all minority conceptions end in an abortion. Killing black and Hispanic babies is a multimillion dollar industry sold to us as women’s health. Planned Parenthood alone pulls in 9 figures on abortion sales while turning an $85 million profit. They claim abortion is only 3% of their business but it directly correlates to their profits.
The left is forever accusing conservatives of being racist and hating minorities. Yet it is conservatives who have been defending the right of black and Hispanic babies to live since Roe was decided 40 years ago. If conservatives hate blacks so much why wouldn’t we support their death via abortion? The fact is that throughout the past 150 years it has been progressives that have advocated racism, not conservatives. We support the right of blacks, Hispanics and all racial and ethnic minorities to live their lives free of government intrusion. This includes the right to be born without state sponsored or state supported abortion threatening minority lives.
Gosnell and all the other grotesque abortion clinics show us a number of things. First, these people don’t care about women’s health. Planned Parenthood forever complains about back alley abortions if Roe is overturned. Yet they support Gosnell and the legion of dirty abortion clinics out there. Second, Gosnell highlights for us that abortion targets minorities for death. Third, for all Obama and the left claim they want abortions “safe and rare” the result is neither. With over 800,000 abortions in 2009 and 50 million since 1973 it isn’t rare. With Gosnell’s operating legally, even protected by states supportive of abortion or fearful of Planned Parenthood political reprisals, it isn’t even safe. Of course, abortion has never been safe for babies, it always results in their death.
