Benjamin Watson, of the Baltimore Ravens, showed that he is a hero both on and off the field by delivering the hard truth on Planned Parenthood. Watson noted the irony of African-American support for Planned Parenthood because it was created in order to “exterminate the black race.” Today, seventy-eight percent of Planned Parenthood clinics are located in minority communities. African-Americans make up only 12 percent of the population, yet they have 35 percent of the abortions in America. Since 1973, abortion has reduced the black population by over 25 percent. Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger was a known racist, and studies today imply that the organization still follows in its founder’s footsteps by targeting minorities.
We’re facing one of the greatest human rights and civil rights issues of our time head on — and most of America is unaware.
Protests in Ferguson, Missouri, and the subsequent slogan “Black lives matter” has become a political hot button when it involves police, but not when it involves abortion.
Aside from Planned Parenthood’s obvious founding mission and present success, they have been caught red-handed selling aborted baby body parts (heads, brains, hearts, lungs, tongues). This should be one of the biggest race stories in the nation.
Why not? Follow the money.
We are fighting an extremely powerful enterprise. Planned Parenthood is the single largest abortion provider in America, racking in a total of 1.3 billion dollars for just the 2014 fiscal year, including $305 million in non-governmental health services, government funding set at $528 million, and $329 million in private contributions.
A half billion in tax dollars isn’t enough — no amount ever is — and the trafficking of aborted baby body parts adds a nice padding to an already padded bottom line. Into that toxic mix, we find promises from Planned Parenthood’s defender-in-chief, The Democratic Party platform, that has promised them more of our hard earned money via grants and the repeal of the Hyde Amendment, which has prohibited Medicaid dollars from paying for abortion since 1976.
So, why is Big Media portraying Planned Parenthood as something they are not, instead of reporting the truth? Because only “some” black lives matter. The same liberal mobs who cry out against injustice or inequality for homosexuals and minorities care not a whit about them one minute before they leave the birth canal. What’s worse is that they advocate for institutions that destroy them.
Black lives do matter. They are inherently made in the image of God, as are all human beings. Minority babies are precious in the sight of God Almighty and are worthy of legal protection. And that, friend, is the difference. Ben Watson is right. To Planned Parenthood, this isn’t about the black lives, the mother, or the baby. It’s about competing worldviews and money. They are fighting for a relativistic belief system that sees humans as disposable commodities.
If the media won’t do their job, then shining light on this atrocity and creating change is going to require the American people to spread the word themselves. Every black life matters!
