Palin: Planned Parenthood, ‘In the Business of Finding Targets’ Like Minority Women

Former Alaska Governor and Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin argued that Planned Parenthood “is in the business of finding targets,” specifically minority women on Wednesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “The O’Reilly Factor.”

Palin explained her Facebook post of a picture of the Confederate flag and Planned Parenthood’s logo with the caption “Which symbol killed 90,000 black babies last year?” Palin stated, “This is kind of symbolic of our political correctness absurdity, and the absurdity of some persons’ priorities, when they are concerned more about a symbol that had represented the negatives many years ago, compared to today, thousands and thousands of babies, obviously, that we’ve seen in the news over and over with Planned Parenthood being butchered, and having their baby parts sold, that people, in some parts, are paying a whole lot more attention to the flag controversy than they are about what Planned Parenthood — their barbaric practices are.”

Palin stated that she focused on the number of black children aborted “because the Confederate flag, obviously, has been such a focal point for much of society right now, that that was an easy comparison. Again, this outrage over the flag, and then, especially in South Carolina, that was taken care of, they took down the flag. But where is more of the outcry about what is actually going on with innocent human life, and how can civilized society even accept what’s going on?”

She added, “Planned Parenthood is in the business of finding targets. So, they may attract those who would be, perhaps disadvantaged in some ways, and be made to believe that abortion is their only option. That is why, Bill, 80% of Planned Parenthood shops are set up in minority neighborhoods. It’s tragic that they would make anybody, a minority even, feel that they’re not capable enough, and they’re not able, and supported enough to go through…that they can go through 40 weeks of a pregnancy in order to give their child life, that it is not impossible. It’s less than ideal in many circumstances, but it’s not impossible, to carry that baby, give it life, and then you’re still going to school, you’re still working, you’re still raising other children. For them to make people feel — women feel that they’re not capable of doing that, is absolutely atrocious.” And “they are in there trying to make these minority women feel that they’re not capable of giving their child life. And then allowing the spirit of adoption or good foster care or more support.”

Palin continued, “They’re doing that because they have too many people deceived. They have leaders in some of these communities, including our president, who would say, [paraphrasing], ‘God bless you, Planned Parenthood. I’m there fighting with you,’ people deceived to make it sound like, oh, my goodness, an innocent human life is disposable.”

She concluded, “Planned Parenthood is a bogus business. They’re in it to make money. They are in it to profit, and they have profit. And that’s why our tax dollars should not go to Planned Parenthood. They’re not needed, and they’re not — it’s certainly not ethical for our tax dollars to go there.”
