Just as enslaved African-Americans were not valued as full persons, neither are the unborn children Planned Parenthood abortionists kill.
Last Friday Robert Dear allegedly opened fire at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, leaving three people dead and several others injured. In the last week, we have seen pro-abortion media outlets, individuals, and Planned Parenthood itself use this attack as a new PR tactic.
This is simply another weapon in the arsenal of celebrities and reporters who regularly go to bat for the abortionists. It follows Lena Dunham’s Planned Parenthood abortionist costume at Halloween (forceps and syringes not included) and Katie Couric’s recent softball tour of an abortuary (baby parts, perforated women, and dead babies not included).
Before Thanksgiving, abortionist Willie J. Parker wrote in The New York Times how he was inspired by the Bible’s life-saving “Good Samaritan” story when he decided to set aside his moral objection to abortion and kill the unborn in Mississippi and Alabama.
But it is perhaps most disturbing, ironic, and contradictory that voices at Salon and “The View” compared pro-life advocates to slave owners. Media outlets and some of the public will devour and regurgitate these ideas as truth, while staying in the dark about how the Left’s glamourizing of abortion and scapegoating of pro-lifers have disturbing similarities to arguments for slavery and against slavery abolitionists in the nineteenth century.
Historically, a slave has been defined as “one who is the property of, and entirely subject to, another person, whether by capture, purchase, or birth; a servant completely divested of freedom and personal rights.” Before the Civil War, it was common to see slave owners purchase the rights to control other people. Slave ownership increased profit on plantations and stimulated the Southern economy.
Substitute “abortion” and “women’s liberation” for “slave ownership” and “the Southern economy,” respectively, and things start to look mighty familiar.
