Violence is wrong. No matter what form it takes, harming or killing innocent human life is a social injustice we should all stand in solidarity against. The Prolife movement denounces violence against the innocent in the womb and their mothers, no matter what.
A burglar can’t denounce theft. A pimp can’t denounce sex trafficking. And Planned Parenthood can’t denounce violence. They kill over 320,000 defenseless humans every year. Abortion, which rips apart a human being, is violent. And sometimes, as in the case of Tonya Reaves, Planned Parenthood prefers to protect its own daily violence over the life of a woman. Tonya Reaves died inside a Planned Parenthood abortion center bleeding to death for 5.5 hours because Planned Parenthood refused to call 911. Her life, and that of her unborn child, had no value to them.
Abortion is violence…against the unborn and their mothers, regardless of race or ethnicity. Although in New York City, where the nation’s largest chain of abortion violence is headquartered, more black babies are aborted than born alive. Planned Parenthood calls this “reproductive justice”. Fannie Lou Hamer, famed anti-poverty and voting rights activist, called abortion a “genocide” among blacks. We echo her sentiments. For the nation’s largest abortion and baby-parts-trafficking chain, only some black lives matter. You can’t denounce violence when you are violence.
All lives matter, which is why the Prolife movement believes we are all created equal–that every life has purpose. Planned Parenthood, a billion-dollar abortion business, has never believed all humans are equal. Ever. And it resorts to the most grotesque form of violence, dismembering and destroying 888 unborn babies every single day. The Center for Medical Progress uncovered the truth that Planned Parenthood sells aborted baby body parts (and sometimes the entire bodies). As soon as the videos went public, Planned Parenthood–always casting itself as the victim–pretended that its website was hacked by pro-lifers. It was all a PR stunt to raise money directly from the webpage that falsely claimed their site was down. They weren’t attacked. What real healthcare organization has ever faked having their website hacked? Only a political machine that hacks the truth (and human lives) every day.
And now, Planned Parenthood has helped to push a bill through making it criminal for anyone to expose the corruption of abortion “providers” in AB 1671, which (of course) violates the First Amendment. Nothing like making it a crime for undercover journalists to expose a corrupt industry.
There’s a reason why Planned Parenthood announced it no longer wanted to use the “pro-choice” label. You’d actually have to support choices. They vilify pregnancy care centers and spend millions on campaigns and lobbying to shut them down. They don’t boast about all the parenting classes offered because billion-dollar Planned Parenthood doesn’t financially benefit when moms and dads choose to parent their child. And they demonize adoption, telling their “educators”, in this so-called, factsheet that: “The psychological responses to abortion are far less serious than those experienced by women bringing their unwanted pregnancy to term and relinquishing the child for adoption.” Gee, that might explain why Planned Parenthood aborts 160 human lives for every 1 adoption referral.
Real healthcare services are plummeting at Planned Parenthood. You know, that go-to defense anytime someone mentions their main “service”, abortion? Breast exams have drastically declined since Cecile Richards took over as president of Planned Parenthood in 2006, dropping by 519,158. In the last five years alone, breast exams have dropped from 747,607 to 363,803! Pro-abortion activists will never respond to these facts, because it requires them to have something more than a cute mantra. Here’s a cute mantra for them: less care, no matter what.
So don’t be fooled by Big Abortion. They may have a billion-dollar budget, but we have the Truth. Don’t let an industry rooted in human destruction fool you into thinking it cares about violence. Abortion mogul, Cecile Richards, declared in the New York Times, “We aim to be the largest kick butt political organization.” They don’t aim to be the best healthcare provider. They are who they are: violence wrapped up in pink banners and ludicrous hashtags. There is real healthcare at over 13,000 (taxpayer-funded) federally qualified health centers and community health centers that don’t commit the violence of abortion (see GetYourCare.org). This is why The Radiance Foundation stands in #solidarity with pro-life Americans who fight, peacefully, through the legal system, through education, through love and compassion–and without any help from 99.9% of mainstream media–to abolish abortion, defund and replace Planned Parenthood.
