“It’s modern day eugenics.” That’s how musician and host of the hit show “America’s Got Talent” Nick Cannon described Planned Parenthood’s work last week. Cannon assailed the organization’s work in black communities as a “genocide” aimed at “population control.” Sadly, he’s right. Nearly 80 percent of Planned Parenthood’s abortion facilities are located in low-income, minority neighborhoods; approximately one-third of all abortions are performed on black women, far out of proportion to the 13 percent African-American share of the U.S. population.
Targeting minorities for abortion services is in keeping with the mission of Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger, who described her goal as the “release and cultivation of the better racial elements in our society” and the eventual “extirpation” of “human weeds.” More recently, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg echoed Sanger’s comments, saying in an interview with The New York Times that the abortion on demand regime legalized by Roe v. Wade was needed to eliminate “populations that we don’t want to have too many of.”
The American people reject this hateful philosophy, and are repelled by Planned Parenthood’s side-business of selling the body parts of aborted babies for a profit. What they may not know, however, is that their tax dollars subsidize this loathsome work — under current law, more than $500 million in federal funding is directed to Planned Parenthood each year.
Among the top priorities of the new Congress in 2017 must be to redirect these funds to community health clinics that offer comprehensive health care services to women and their families — without abortion. These clinics outnumber Planned Parenthood facilities by 20 to 1, and are widely accessible to the people they serve. There are more than 13,000 qualified health centers providing a full range of health care services to women, including 4,000 in underserved rural areas. Research done by the Charlotte Lozier Institute documented that on average, there is at least one federally qualified health center within five miles of every Planned Parenthood location.
Today I published a video on how celebrities on the left are complete dickbags.
I’ve been very harsh about Nick Cannon in the past because I’ve never found him funny. But I apologize, Nick. You get major props for this one. Because it’s all true and you had the nerve to speak up in a Hollywood echo chamber of liberal group think. Bravo!
