The eyes of the nation widened with shock when New York announced that its new abortion law — the Reproductive Health Act (RHA) — would allow a baby to be aborted up until the day of birth. This “progress” as New York sees it doesn’t even recognize a human being as a person until he or she is out of the womb!
It is only natural that Planned Parenthood would “applaud” this travesty. As evidenced by its annual report released just last week (which we comment on here), the organization celebrates a culture of death in the womb. Yet the extreme view of abortion shared by Planned Parenthood and the state of New York is out of touch with the majority of Americans who believe that there should be restrictions on abortion. According to a recent Marist poll, 75 percent of Americans believe that abortion should be limited to within the first three months of pregnancy. This number also includes more than six in 10 (61 percent) who identify as “pro-choice” on abortion.
According to New York’s abortion report, there were 82,189 abortions performed on New York residents in 2016. Out of the 47,718 total reported pregnancies experienced by non-Hispanic black women, almost half — 49 percent — ended in abortion, and 47 percent made it out the womb alive. That’s more black babies aborted than born alive in New York.
Now under this law, that disparity will increase. This begs the question: Do black lives really matter?
It is only fitting that Planned Parenthood is celebrating such barbarianism, seeing that its founder Margaret Sanger started her first “family planning” clinic in New York — known as the American Birth Control League (ABCL) — in 1921. The ABCL changed its name to the Planned Parenthood Federation of America in 1942. Soon after, she initiated what was called the “Negro Project,” notoriously saying “[w]e do not want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population.”
