New York Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D) is prone to deceptive hyperbole. She’s not only called the empty, lacking-in-foundation, tax-funded, economy destroying, “battle against Climate Change” “our World War Two,” she claimed that she feared for her life when protesters trespassed on the Capitol Building in January – even though she wasn’t in that building and was in her office, in a completely different building.
Now, she’s promoting the warm-and-fuzzy canard that abortion giant Planned Parenthood (PP) is a saver of lives, rather than acknowledging the truth: that the long-standing corporation not only slaughters hundreds of thousands of babies a year, it will continue to get tax money to do it.
Similar to the typical leftist mantra of PP providing “essential health services” to “at risk” females that we can hear anytime someone proposes actually abiding by the US Constitution and stopping the shift of millions in tax cash to the murder mill, AOC’s hyperbole appears to have been tailored to hide the truth, while depicting any attempt to NOT force taxpayers to subsidize the murders as “policies that kill people.”
Reports Calvin Freiburger for LifeSiteNews:
Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (‘AOC’) of New York delivered a curious message during a virtual hearing Thursday, during which she credited Planned Parenthood with saving the lives of babies rather than ending them.
In reality, and as AOC likely knows, Planned Parenthood Superpac’s recent expenditure of $45 million to save the careers of politicians who are pro-abortion and pro-federal-funding-of-abortion probably did the most proportional “saving” of anyone.
’If we want to talk about Planned Parenthood, let’s talk about how many lives Planned Parenthood has saved and how many babies have been born because of the prenatal care provided by Planned Parenthood,’ the self-described socialist lawmaker argued.
Which appears to be an intentional, deceptive, shift of focus, omitting the larger facts.
And if you don’t believe it, and if you’ve never met a Planned Parenthood baby, I’m happy to let you know that I am one. And that my mother received and relied on prenatal care from Planned Parenthood when she was pregnant with me. And so if we are concerned about life, we don’t get to talk about anyone else who is not concerned about the whole spectrum of that when we are upholding policies that kill people.
But, of course, Planned Parenthood is not only a net provider of death, its yearly fatality rate is shocking. As Freiburger writes:
Abortion advocates commonly attempt to downplay the fact that Planned Parenthood kills more than 300,000 preborn babies every year by focusing on the non-abortion services the abortion chain offers. But the organization’s legitimate health services have steadily declined over the years while the number of abortions it performs have steadily risen.

And he adds:
According to Planned Parenthood’s 2018-2019 annual report, the federally-subsidized abortion giant aborted 345,672 babies while providing just 9,798 ‘prenatal services.’
And as a person who often reminds people she is a member of a “racial minority,” doesn’t AOC know that Planned Parenthood was started in 1916 by Margaret Sanger, an avowed eugenicist and race-supremacist who wanted to reduce the population ratio of minorities she thought “inferior” to white people?
Doesn’t AOC know Sanger was the lover of British novelist, HG Wells, who also was a eugenicist?
To quote Sanger, from her screed “Pivot of Civilization”:
There is but one practical and feasible program in handling the great problem of the feeble-minded. That is, as the best authorities are agreed, to prevent the birth of those who would transmit imbecility to their descendants. Feeble-mindedness as investigations and statistics from every country indicate, is invariably associated with an abnormally high rate of fertility. Modern conditions of civilization, as we are continually being reminded, furnish the most favorable breeding-ground for the mental defective, the moron, the imbecile.
And she famously said this to a pastor who had been recruited to get poor black Americans to acquiesce to taking money in exchange sterilization:
In this way, the moron and the diseased would have no posterity to inherit their condition.
She once said that the purpose of birth “control” was to, “create a race of thoroughbreds.”
That is the founder of the organization AOC credits with “saving” so many lives.
For years, leftists denied the truth about Sanger, but as MRCTV’s Brittany Hughes reported in August, last year,the organization recently began to distance itself from her name.
Will AOC ever distance herself from the organization?
Will she ever distance herself from the idea of taking other people’s money to fund it?
And will she ever acknowledge all the lives taken because she, and others in DC, forced people to pay for abortions, ever acknowledge that most "Planned Parenthood babies" end up dead, in metal buckets?
One can only hope, and pray, that, someday, she will.
