As leftist media outlets reminded us with glee two weeks ago, Planned Parenthood celebrated its 100th birthday. As they were celebrating their 100th birthday, 898 unborn children were killed that day in a Planned Parenthood clinic.
Consider these horrifying statistics:
Sanger was a eugenics advocate who felt that minorities–in particular blacks–were genetically inferior, and that in order to make our society better these, mostly poor, minorities needed to be exterminated in favor of wealthier whites. In other words, Sanger subscribed to the paganist ideology of social Darwinism peddled by Charles Darwin. Don’t take my word for it; here are some quotes directly from her:
“The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.”
This raises the question: what exactly does Hillary admire about Sanger? What has Sanger done that Hillary is in awe of? Is it her blatant racism? Her views on killing children with disabilities? What exactly is it? It sure would’ve been nice if a debate moderator had asked these questions of her.
The case against Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry as a whole is overwhelming. It is a moral blight on the history of this country and is one of America’s great sins. Despite this, year after year, in continuing resolution after continuing resolution, Planned Parenthood is subsidized to the tune of $500 million dollars by the federal government. Article I of the Constitution specifies that all spending bills must originate in the House of Representatives. Despite the Republicans having controlled the House since 2010 and the Senate since 2014, the “family values” party has failed to send legislation to the President’s desk defunding Planned Parenthood. I think conservatives and pro-life activists must come to the reality that the Republican Party as an entity has been, in many respects, a horrible failure for the pro-life cause.
This lack of action is despite the fact that 80% of the country supports at least some restrictions on abortions in the third trimester and I would argue that if the Republicans went on the offensive, support for more restrictions or an eventual all out ban of abortion would increase dramatically. Politically and morally this is a winning issue for Republicans and yet they will not take it up. Instead the Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, and the Senate Majority Whip, John Cornyn seem to be too busy pushing for Obama’s jailbreak legislation (a topic for another article).
Meanwhile, the Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell is seemingly in the witness protection program as the last time we saw him was on the side of a milk carton at a local supermarket. With Madame President Clinton looming, conservatives are going to have to at least give some thought to a serious, coherent game plan to combat her forthcoming leftwing abortion agenda.
If the Republican Party cannot stand up for the most vulnerable in our society, then conservatives are going to have to consider the future beyond November 8th and whether the GOP is the best vehicle to advance our cause. It is time for leaders to stand up to the culture of death and double down to ensure Planned Parenthood doesn’t celebrate another 100 years of existence.
In order to do that, all options must be on the table.
