Planned Parenthood may have won the Oscar for one of the most tragically ironic tweets during last night’s Academy Awards. The film “Selma,” which centers on Martin Luther King, Jr.’s civil rights march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, was recognized during the ceremony for its powerful message and strong performances. John Legend and Common took home the Oscar for Best Original Song for “Glory.” After the two artists accepted the award, the pro-abortion “women’s rights” organization Planned Parenthood chimed in on social media. Here was their message that evoked the wrath of pro-lifers everywhere:
Some social media users noticed and exposed the abortion-on-demand organization’s hypocrisy.
One respondent pointed out that Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger was a firm believer in eugenics and an undeniable racist.
Planned Parenthood’s blindness is astonishing. How it can dare to profess #BlackLivesMatter, while it aborts black children every day, is beyond comprehension.
Anna Duggar of “19 Kids and Counting” fame got a barrage of hate mail earlier this month after she retweeted a message from the pro-life Radiance Foundation that revealed the abject slaughter of black unborn babies in the country’s abortion clinics.
“Human beings should be remembered not dismembered. Because of the violence of abortion, over 16 million black people are history. TooManyAborted.com #BlackHistoryMonth #BlackLivesMatter #AllLivesMatter”
As that website somberly points out, abortion is the number one killer of black lives in America. To put it in another grim perspective, 363,705 black lives are taken by abortion annually. That is something that is worth our attention. Yet, Anna Duggar was treated like a bigot after simply helping to expose this deadly prejudice.
The “Selma” cast and creators and Planned Parenthood are right that the struggle for racial justice is still ongoing, but they fail to target the real culprits.
