Right to Life

By Robert Holston

Stacey Abrams, former Georgia gubernatorial candidate and potential Senate candidate, delivered the Democrats' response to President Trump's State of the Union address.  One particular statement near the end caught my attention.  “America achieved a measure of reproductive justice in Roe v. Wade, but we must never forget: It is immoral to allow politicians to harm women and families to advance a political agenda.”   Speaking of harm....

To me the eternal essence of “justice” is to protect the innocent.  Rather anodyne to most.  What may not be quite so obvious is the startling fact that Stacey Abrams, a black woman, is obviously in support of Planned Parenthood, receiving over $500 MILLION tax dollars per year to kill mostly black babies.

Planned Parenthood traces its roots back to nurse, educator and founder Margaret Sanger — whose racist activism changed the world.  Sanger once wrote: “Minorities crammed into impoverished areas in inner cities should not be having so many babies. And, of course, these minorities (including most of America’s immigrants) are inferior in the human race, as are the physically and mentally handicapped. We should require mandatory sterilizations of those less desirable and promote easy access to abortion. And since sex should be a free-for-all, we must provide birth control and abortions to teenagers too. It’s all for the greater good and for a more intelligent, liberated, healthier population.”

Indeed....”free for all sex” is the basis upon which Planned Parenthood keeps its abortion mill churning.  The definition of a successful abortion is killing the baby.  The death of an innocent life at any stage of life is to me tragic.  The fact that Margaret Sanger’s organization targets blacks and other minorities is compounding the tragedy.  Planned Parenthood targets minority communities. Minority women make up 13% of the population yet they have 36% of all abortions. According to The Alan Guttmacher Institute, black women are more than 5 times as likely to have an abortion as white women.  According to, “A 2010 census reveals that Planned Parenthood is targeting minority neighborhoods. 79% of their surgical abortion facilities are located within walking distance of African American or Hispanic/Latino neighborhoods.”

The RACIST evidence of the Planned Parnethoods founder is summed up in her own words:

“Birth control is not contraception indiscriminately and thoughtlessly practiced. It means the release and cultivation of the better racial elements in our society, and the gradual suppression, elimination and eventual extirpation of defective stocks— those human weeds which threaten the blooming of the finest flowers of American civilization.”

What is immoral is the fact that Stacy Abrams ignores the racist foundation upon which Planned Parenthood is built.  She seems overly concerned about “the right to vote” while ignoring the most fundamental Right to Life.
