For years, pro-life advocates have pointed out that many Planned Parenthood clinics are suspiciously located in poorer parts of cities which are home to a majority of black Americans.
They have also noted that Planned Parenthood was founded by “eugenicist” and overt racist Margaret Sanger, and that apparently not much has changed from those early days when PP was seen as a vehicle for, if not exterminating blacks altogether, severely limiting their numbers.
As if to emphasize these points, a black female state representative in Ohio recently introduced an amendment to a “heartbeat” bill that would have exempted black mothers, and interestingly — or perhaps shockingly — she used the institution of slavery to justify her bill.
Rep. Janine Boyd, a Democrat, crafted an amendment to a pro-life bill that forbids baby-killing abortions after a fetal heartbeat can be heard by doctors (usually around six weeks), The Daily Wire noted.
LifeNews noted that Boyd’s amendment “would have given an exemption to African American women to abort their unborn babies for any reason up to the state’s current limit, 20 weeks.”
Unbelievably, Boyd “likened restrictions on abortion to slavery as she urged her fellow lawmakers to support the measure,” LifeNews reported further.
“Black slaves were once treated like cattle and put out to stud in order to create generations of more slaves,” Boyd argued. “Our country is not far enough beyond our history to legislate as if it is.”
First of all, to Democrats and especially black Democrats, no matter how much distance in time America puts between our history of slavery and having eradicated it via a Civil War and three post-war amendments, enough time will never pass. Blacks will continue to use the slavery issue as a cudgel to badger and beat Americans with until the tactic no longer works (which, hopefully, is a date rapidly approaching).
Secondly, since there is no slavery anymore in America, Boyd’s measure effectively carries out Margaret Sanger’s original intent of destroying the black race in America or, at a minimum, keeping the black population as low as possible. Her mental programming to believe in abortion at all costs, like religion, has led her to craft this ridiculous legislation and then attempt to justify it with a wholly inappropriate example.
To the Ohio legislature’s credit, the amendment failed and, to GOP Gov. Mike DeWine’s credit, the measure was signed into law.
Former Planned Parenthood exec-turned-pro-life activist Abby Johnson destroyed Boyd over her amendment, saying that “apparently a 38 percent national abortion rate in the African-American community isn’t enough.”
“A female, African-American democratic state representative from Ohio presented this amendment to the Ohio Heartbeat bill. This amendment would have made an exception for African-American babies…because apparently a 38% national abortion rate in the African-American community isn’t enough,” posted Johnson to Facebook. “The amendment was struck down 11-7” — which was still far too close for comfort.
“To reference owning humans as a defense of dismembering them is moral myopia. If it is wrong to own humans, it is also wrong to intentionally kill them,” noted pro-life group Created Equal president Mark Harrington, according to LifeNews.
According to research by the pro-life group Students for Life of America, abortion has reduced the black population in the United States by a quarter — 25 percent.
The group also points out that 80 percent of PP clinics nationwide are located in minority neighborhoods. “About 13% of American women are black, but they submit to over 35% of the abortions,” the group says, adding that Sanger’s objective, in her own words, was “ridding the world of “human beings who never should have been born.”
Who could have imagined that a century later, members of the very same ethnic group Sanger was targeting would be helping a group she founded achieve its own genocide?
