First, killing unborn babies should not be legal. Just because the Supreme Court ruled in 1973 that unborn babies don’t have legal protection under the Constitution does not mean that killing unborn babies is the moral thing to do any more than it was the moral thing to do for the Supreme Court to rule that Dred Scott and his wife did not have any legal rights under the Constitution.
Second, the abortion issue is mired in smoke-screen language, red herrings, and obfuscation as is typical of abortion apologists like Sen. Barbara Boxer who wrote a long defense of the racist organization known as Planned Parenthood in (where else?) the Huffington Post:
“Now we are witnessing another ideological attack that would put women’s health and women’s lives at risk — this time by targeting women’s reproductive health care, an issue that was resolved back in 1973.”
Abortion is not about women’s health. Killing an unborn baby is not healthy for the baby. Unborn babies, at least half of which are female, are at the greatest risk when it comes to legalized abortion.
Third, Sen. Barbara Boxer went on to write about the virtue of Planned Parenthood and its founder, Margaret Sanger:
“Today, the Republican majority is forcing another vote to defund an organization that for nearly 100 years has provided women and their families with preventive and life-saving health care — Planned Parenthood.”
As if there aren’t other organizations in the United states that provide women and their families with life-saving healthcare without killing the unborn children of their mothers in the process.
Planned Parenthood, originally named the American Birth Control League, was founded by the racist and eugenicist Margaret Sanger in 1922.
Here’s some of what Sanger had to say on the subject:
- “(We) are seeking to assist the white race toward the elimination of the unfit (blacks).” (Birth Control and Racial Betterment, 1919)
- “Birth Control to create a (white) race of thoroughbreds!” (Subhead to Sanger’s magazine The Birth Control Review)
