According to Planned Parenthood, Saturday’s madness in Charlottesville, Virginia was all about white supremacists’ intent to stop black babies from being aborted.
It probably doesn’t need to be said but there are many, many problems with this theory.
For one, Saturday’s event actually began as a protest against the increasing trend of Confederate monuments being taken down in the south.
Secondly, the idea of the rally being comprised of and organized entirely by “white supremacists” with the explicit purpose of stopping black babies from being aborted seems rather dubious in itself.
Nonetheless, this is Planned Parenthood we’re talking about here, so the facts and morals that typically bind most rational human beings do not apply.
“Racial justice is reproductive justice,” Planned Parenthood Advocates of Indiana and Kentucky tweeted in response to the Charlottesville chaos.
“#StandWithCharlottesville against racism & hate in your community.”

It remains incredibly unclear as to how exactly “racial justice is reproductive justice,” especially considering that abortion – that procedure Planned Parenthood seems to think is integral to women’s health care – has caused more deaths among black Americans than literally every other cause combined since 1973.
Planned Parenthood literally murders members of the black community before they even get a chance to experience the world yet they want to lecture everyone about equality and racial justice.
As if that wasn’t ironic enough, Planned Parenthood was founded by Margaret Sanger, whose explicit purpose for starting the group was to whittle down the black population.
Instead of protesting for the removal of artwork depicting Sanger in the Smithsonian Institution’s National Portrait Gallery, Planned Parenthood is virtue signalling on Twitter.
The organization even went as far as to say, “Planned Parenthood stands with people of color” in response to the Charlottesville chaos.

If that’s true, why does there appear to be so little introspection happening at Planned Parenthood?
Further, if Planned Parenthood stands with the black community, why does it insist on exploiting said community with nonsensical arguments accusing individuals protesting the removal of Confederate statues of wanting to withhold abortions from minorities?
Would Planned Parenthood not be more effective in assisting the black community if they attempted to assist with the issues that result in so many black mothers seeking abortions in the first place?
Right, but that would be real health care. Planned Parenthood doesn’t provide that.
