You know, it’s really funny when you think about it. The left spends all of it’s time worrying about cultural appropriation, offensive costumes, and other social justice horrors of Halloween, and then – right smack down in the middle of the day – one of their most precious organizations goes and lands the most despicable, offensive blow of the season. In fact, we’ll have to go ahead and give the early prize to Planned Parenthood for the Most Offensive Tweet of 2017, because it will be hard for anyone to outdo this beauty.
Of course, if you’re a – cough cough – “pro-choice” liberal, you probably think this kind of message is A-OK. Nothing wrong with it at all.
“If you’re a Black woman in America,” they wrote on Tuesday, “it’s statistically safer to have an abortion than to carry a pregnancy to term or give birth #ScaryStats.”
Wow. So what’s the underlying message here? It is supposed to be some kind of commentary on how we can improve healthy births for black women? No, of course not. The message appears to be: Hey black women, we know you’re thinking about carrying that baby to term, but did you know that – just to be on the safe side – you should really come in to Planned Parenthood for an abortion!
Planned Parenthood offered some statistics to back up their claim, although it really doesn’t matter what kinds of numbers they crunch. If they want to make the argument that we should work to bring down mortality rates for birthing black women, we are on board 100%. But if they seriously want to make the argument that abortions are safer and preferable to birth, count us out. In none of their statistics, after all, do they account for the unfortunate and inconvenient fact that at least one human being does NOT survive an abortion. Any abortion.
