The Michael Jordan of abortions has decided to retire her jersey. In her 12 years as president of Planned Parenthood, Cecile Richards has overseen an organization that aborted roughly 3.5 million unborn babies. That’s about the population of Connecticut. During her victory lap, Richards praised supporters, adding that she felt honored to have worked beside them.
"You and countless others have been there every step of the way," she wrote in a farewell letter. "When I asked you to speak up proudly on behalf of Planned Parenthood patients, you raised your voice until it couldn’t be ignored."
Well, unless your voice was the tiny, panicked cry of a baby during a late-term abortion.
"When I asked you to fight for reproductive rights, you donated generously and volunteered your time," she added. "When I asked for your commitment and dedication to help elect leaders who would protect access to health care for all, you did whatever it took to get the job done."
Like the winning hometown hero at the homecoming rally, she lifted her blood-stained hanky and rallied her followers to keep fighting.
It’s almost as if she’s judging each of them by their identity.
"Don’t stop fighting,” she wrote. “Don’t stop speaking out. And don’t ever stop standing with Planned Parenthood, with women, with people of color, with LGBTQ people, with immigrants, with young people, with patients, with doctors, with those who are shut out of power and silenced and ignored by our leaders."
Why, as the president of Planned Parenthood, would she specifically mention people of color, LGBTQ people and immigrants? And young people? It’s almost as if she’s judging each of them by their identity, and by the unique personality each of them has. I can assume she wouldn’t support the LGBTQ immigrant of color who also happens to be against abortions. That just wouldn’t fit her prejudicial narrative.
