The abortion Goliath Planned Parenthood doesn’t seem to have a line when it comes to who it will or won’t associate itself with on the left. So long as you consider abortion a holy sacrament you can count on the nation’s number one abortion provider to stick with you, even if you’re a rabid antisemite.
According to Refinery 29, Planned Parenthood spokeswoman Erica Sackin said that The Women’s March is a symbol of the resistance and that Planned Parenthood is “proud” to team up with the march in the name of equality and justice, completely ignoring the antisemitism The Women’s March is soaked in:
“Over the last two years, we’ve seen unprecedented attacks on our health and rights from the Trump-Pence administration. The Women’s March has become a symbol of our collective resistance to these damaging and discriminatory policies and Planned Parenthood is proud to once again, join our progressive partners for the #WomensWave mobilization to protect and advance the progress we’ve made as a movement dedicated to equity and justice for all people,” Erica Sackin, senior communications director for Planned Parenthood Federation of America, said in a statement to Refinery29.
Refinery29 added that Planned Parenthood didn’t directly address the accusations thrown at The Women’s March, but the abortion giant did rattle off the platitude that there was no place for bigotry in our country:
Planned Parenthood did not directly address the latest allegations in the statement, but said they must “unequivocally reaffirm, as the Women’s March leadership has, that there is no place for anti-Semitism, homophobia, transphobia, or any kind of bigotry in our communities, our progressive movement, and our country.”
“We will continue to work with the Women’s March to hold ourselves and each other accountable to the Unity Principles that are the basis of our partnership,” the statement adds.
If Planned Parenthood is being serious about their stance against bigotry — and we can demonstrably note they’re not — then they’re going to have a lot to answer for in the coming months as the proof that the Women’s March leadership is tied to antisemitism is more than just word of mouth stories.
Chairwoman Linda Sarsour is on record saying antisemitic things all the time, such as blaming Jews for the Democrats flagging popularity, supports the BDS movement against Israel, and claimed that nothing is creepier than Zionism.
Bob Bland, Sarsour, Tamika Mallory, and Carmen Perez have not been shy about their love of Nation of Islam antisemitic hate preacher Louis Farrakhan, with Mallory calling him the GOAT (greatest of all time) while smiling in a picture with him. They also are on record attending Farrakhan led events.
The group’s antisemitism has caused The Women’s March to have a Human Rights Award rescinded from them by The Friedrich Ebert Foundation, a German socialist think-tank, over its blatant antisemitism.
It got so bad that the March’s founder, Teresa Shook, publicly called for the chairwomen to step down from their positions so the ship could right itself, and the March could distance itself from the rabid antisemitism it’s become associated with.
This is what Planned Parenthood is failing to distance itself from. The abortion giant that claims bigotry has no place in this country seems to be okay with very obvious antisemitism.
