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 â€œeugenicistâ€ 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 â€œheartbeatâ€ bill that would have exempted black mothers, and interestingly â€” or perhaps shockingly â€” she used the institution of slavery to justify her bill.
Rep. Janine Boyd, a Democrat, crafted an amendment to a pro-life bill that forbidsÂ baby-killing abortionsÂ after a fetal heartbeat can be heard by doctors (usually around six weeks),Â The Daily WireÂ noted.
LifeNewsÂ noted that Boydâ€™s amendmentÂ â€œwould have given an exemption to African American women to abort their unborn babies for any reason up to the stateâ€™s current limit, 20 weeks.â€
Unbelievably, Boyd â€œlikened restrictions on abortion to slavery as she urged her fellow lawmakers to support the measure,â€Â LifeNewsÂ reported further.
â€œBlack slaves were once treated like cattle and put out to stud in order to create generations of more slaves,â€ Boyd argued. â€œOur country is not far enough beyond our history to legislate as if it is.â€
First of all, to Democrats and especiallyÂ blackÂ 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,Â since there is no slavery anymore in America,Â Boydâ€™s measure effectively carries out Margaret Sangerâ€™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 legislatureâ€™s credit, the amendment failed and, to GOP Gov. Mike DeWineâ€™s credit, the measure was signed into law.Â
Former Planned Parenthood exec-turned-pro-life activist Abby Johnson destroyed Boyd over her amendment, saying that â€œapparently a 38 percent national abortion rate in the African-American community isnâ€™t enough.â€
â€œA 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 babiesâ€¦because apparently a 38% national abortion rate in the African-American community isnâ€™t enough,â€ posted Johnson to Facebook. â€œThe amendment was struck down 11-7â€ â€” which was still far too close for comfort.
â€œTo 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,â€ noted pro-life group Created Equal president Mark Harrington, according toÂ LifeNews.
According to researchÂ by the pro-life group Students for Life of America, abortion has reduced the black population in the United States by a quarter â€” 25 percent.
The group also points out that 80 percent of PP clinics nationwide are located in minority neighborhoods. â€œAbout 13% of American women are black, but they submit to over 35% of the abortions,â€ the group says, adding that Sangerâ€™s objective, in her own words, was â€œridding the world of â€œhuman beings who never should have been born.â€
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?
