Conservative firebrand Candace Owens is calling out Planned Parenthood for its attacks on the black population in disguising abortion as “healthcare.”
On Tuesday, Planned Parenthood once again tweeted its mantra that abortion is health care, linking to an article by Self magazine calling legislation on abortion “reproductive coercion.”
Owens shot back two of her own tweets, first a sarcastic quip, “You spelled murder wrong,” followed by a news flash: “This just in: murdering 800 black babies every single day is now considered ‘heathcare’”:

Owens, the communications director for Turning Point USA, hit an especially vulnerable chink in Planned Parenthood’s armor: its history of targeting the black community for extermination.
Last March, a Planned Parenthood student group at the University of Florida hosted an event to discuss the “racist roots” of the organization as well as the eugenics of founder Margaret Sanger.
“Come join Planned Parenthood Generation Action for a panel discussion on the racist roots of Planned Parenthood during Black History Month,” read the Facebook announcement of the event bearing the title “Decolonizing Sexual Health.”
“Our subject is addressing the racist roots of the birth control movement, specifically pertaining to the influence of eugenics,” the post continues. “Margaret Sanger, Planned Parenthood’s founder, is a controversial figure in this conversation because despite her devotion to reproductive rights, she also had beliefs, practices, and associations with eugenics that we acknowledge and denounce, and work to rectify today.”
A number of Planned Parenthood critics have pointed out that Planned Parenthood’s current policy of targeting minority communities seems to fit perfectly with the original racist aims of the organization.
In a statement sent to Breitbart News, the president of Students for Life of America, Kristan Hawkins, said that while acknowledging the racist roots of Planned Parenthood is an important first step, it is ultimately meaningless “unless you also acknowledge that the racist practices of Planned Parenthood continue to this day, since Planned Parenthood continues to target black and Hispanic babies for abortion by the placement of their abortion vendor locations in minority neighborhoods.”
What Planned Parenthood needs to do next, Hawkins wrote, is to “address the disparity of abortion, which takes proportionally, so many more lives of infants of color.”
Obianuju Ekeocha, an African pro-life champion and author of Target Africa: Ideological Neo-colonialism of the Twenty-first Century, told Breitbart News she was “shocked” Planned Parenthood would try to hijack the term “decolonization” to suit its iniquitous purposes.
The international abortion giant not only “has its roots firmly embedded in eugenic racism,” she said, but even today, “we know that Planned Parenthood targets black and other minority communities, having up to 79% of their surgical abortion facilities located within walking distance of African American or Hispanic/Latino neighborhoods.”
The organization also has “a well-funded network of operations across the continent of Africa under the banner of IPPF (International Planned Parenthood Federation),” she added, and “embodies colonialism in their mandates and their methods.”
Among black women in America, there are 501 abortions for every 1,000 live births as opposed to just 138 among whites. This means that blacks are aborted at 3.6 times the rate of whites in the United States.
According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), between 2007 and 2010, nearly 35.4 percent of the deaths by abortion in the United States happened to black babies, despite the fact that blacks represented only 12.8 percent of the population.
As the Rev. Clenard Childress, pastor of the New Calvary Baptist Church in Montclair, New Jersey, has said, “The most dangerous place for an African American is in the womb.”
Abortion is currently the leading cause of death in America, but far more so for the black community, and accounts for more black deaths than homicide or any disease, including cancer and heart disease.
