On Sunday, Planned Parenthood tweeted a link to an article at Fusion, titled “Life in a Magical Land Where Abortions and Birth Control Are Free and Plentiful,” a far cry from even pro-abortion President Bill Clinton’s exhortation at the Democrat National Convention in August of 1996 that abortion be “rare.”
Imagine "life in a magical land where abortions and birth control are free and plentiful" This place exists. https://t.co/zdEYnLF0oT

“With a single tweet, Planned Parenthood accidentally told us the truth,” Rep. Diane Black tells Breitbart News. “They effectively admitted that the abortion lobby’s mantra of ‘safe, legal, and rare’ abortion is a lie and that the organization’s real mission is to encourage more elective abortions funded off the backs of taxpayers.”
Black is the author of the Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2015 and a member of the House Select panel, which is investigating the abortion business in the wake of videos exposing its apparent practices of selling the body parts of aborted babies. Black adds:
These statements are painful to hear and offensive to all Americans of conscience, but what else would we expect from an organization that calls the destruction of an unborn life “healthcare” and that allows aborted babies to be disposed of in landfills? We must not stand for this barbarity. With the Senate just having passed a reconciliation bill to reallocate Planned Parenthood’s funding, every senator who voted against this measure should be forced to square their vote with this appalling statement.
Fusion article author Rosie Spinks writes about “feeling infantilized” at college for having to add a charge for a Nuvaring to her student account, where her father might see it. She contrasts life in the United States — where abortionists are “forced to operate under a federal system that legislates to religious minorities at the expense of women” — with that in London where she later received hundreds of dollars worth of blood tests “for the full gamut of potential ailments free of charge,” as well as “a year’s worth of birth control in a brown paper bag, also completely free.”
Spinks goes on to say that she is “infuriated by conservative lawmakers’ fixation on legislating my vagina,” and complains about the legal challenges to Obamacare’s HHS mandate that requires most employers to provide free birth control through health insurance plans.
“As the highest court in the land ponders whether to give the archaic whims of a tiny slice of religious objectors more influence than laws passed by the democratically-elected government, it’s worth considering what it’s like to live in a country where these all are moot points,” she writes. “If nothing else, it serves as a good reminder for reproductive health advocates that all hope is not lost.”
Black observes this Planned Parenthood mantra that abortion is “women’s reproductive health care,” all while aborted babies are being dumped in landfills has created a “contrast between the pro-abortion and the pro-life point of view” that “has never been more clear.”
“While Planned Parenthood invites its supporters to imagine a future of ‘free and plentiful’ abortion – because apparently the loss of more than 327,000 unborn babies a year just isn’t enough – we in the pro-life movement invite Americans to believe in a country where every life is cherished and where every child is given a chance to see the light of day,” she adds.
