Via The Daily Caller, Planned Parenthood is seriously irony-impaired:
Planned Parenthood joined the #BlackLivesMatter Twitter protest Monday afternoon, tweeting, “We are joining #Ferguson organizers and protesters in DC today — standing in solidarity with you! #HandsUpWalkOut #BlackLivesMatter”
The movement is part of the ongoing response to a grand jury’s decision not to indict Darren Wilson for the murder of Michael Brown, an 18-year-old African-American who was shot and killed by the police officer in August. Some have said that the failure to indict is evidence that black people in the United States don’t merit the same legal protections that white people do, and have taken to Twitter to express their outrage.
Yeah, black lives matter, if they manage to make it out of the womb. According to the CDC, more than half the babies aborted between 2007 and 2010 were minorities, 36 percent of them black (though they make up only 12,8 percent of the population).
Planned Parenthood has a long history of reaching out to the black community to “increase coverage,” stretching back to the days of its founder, eugenicist Margaret Sanger.
“We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities,” she wrote in 1922. “The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”
