All Black Lives Matter, Despite Liberal Hypocrisy

As we hear calls from radicals to defund the police, a genuine call from anyone who truly believes black lives matter should be to defund Planned Parenthood and fight to protect the lives of the unborn. 

Liberals and the mainstream media like to paint pictures of conservatives as being anti-minority. But it was Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger — who has been praised by Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and Joe Biden — who made it her life’s work to purify the gene pool. 

Margaret Sanger was a racist, a fact now acknowledged openly by more than 350 current and former Planned Parenthood employees. 

"I think the greatest sin in the world is bringing children into the world — that have disease from their parents, that have no chance in the world to be a human being practically," Sanger said in an interview in 1957. "Delinquents, prisoners, all sorts of things just marked when they're born. That to me is the greatest sin — that people can — can commit." 

Sanger herself was a speaker at a Ku Klux Klan rally and saw abortion clinics as a tool to rid our country of, in her view, the burden of a black population deemed unworthy of the American ideals of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. 

Here's the truth: Black babies are disproportionately killed by abortion at a share significantly higher than their percentage of the population. It’s no coincidence that Planned Parenthood surgical clinics continue to be located primarily in overwhelmingly black neighborhoods. 

According to a CDC report from 2011, about 36 percent of abortions were obtained by black women, despite comprising only 14 percent of the childbearing population. Using this data, we see that nearly 19 million black babies have been aborted since Roe v. Wade. That's more than 40 percent of all abortions. 

Sanger looked with approval to the German eugenics laws of the 1930s and made common cause with the American eugenicists of her day. 

Sincere black lives matter allies should eliminate the Sanger shrine to racism embodied in every Planned Parenthood today. No longer should Wisconsinites accept the inhumane practice of abortion, which so clearly has a disproportionate impact on minority populations. 

This issue is too often ignored in our culture. We hear calls from New York and Hollywood elites telling us we need to amplify black voices while these same celebrities sit back and watch as the next generation of African-Americans is disregarded and discarded. Their rhetoric is phony. 

Liberals aren’t interested in having a conversation that shines a light on their hypocrisy. Their silence unfortunately matches that of the 19 million black children who will never have a chance to speak. 

I'm running for Wisconsin State Senate because Wisconsin needs a voice that doesn’t hesitate to call out those who would rather virtue-signal than support the innocent lives of unborn minorities — I’m looking at you, Gov. Evers. 

I will work to save lives. As soon as I take my oath of office, I will work with fellow pro-life allies to ban procedures that unjustifiably end the lives of unborn babies. 

I will seek to end the inhumane practices performed by Planned Parenthood so that abortionists cannot profit off the bodies of white, black, Latino, or any other babies. 

I'm running for office because Wisconsin needs a fighter and a champion for those innocent lives that lack a voice at our State Capitol. I hope voters in the 28th Senate District will support me in the primary on Tuesday, August 11, because I promise that I will be an authentic voice for the voiceless.
