We all know that federal funding is never free. There are always strings attached. One would just logically assume that actually abiding by federal laws prohibiting discrimination based on race, gender, or disability would, at the very least, apply to any federal funding. Yet, Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, which has received billions of dollars of federal funding, once again believes that it is above the law.

We have repeatedly reported how Planned Parenthood does not feel it should have any state regulations controlling its practices, even ones as obvious as simply providing a sterile examination room and medical instruments. We have also reported on Planned Parenthood’s violation of federal law. Well, now it wants to be free to discriminate as well.

Planned Parenthood is continuing its attack on Indiana over Indiana’s recently passed abortion restriction bill, a commonsense law prohibiting abortions based solely on the unborn child’s sex, race, color, national origin, ancestry, or disability, including Down syndrome. Surely, there would be no reason in the world anyone would have for disagreeing with such a law. However, Planned Parenthood sure doesn’t like it. The fact that Planned Parenthood is attacking this law once again exposes its true agenda. It is not about the rights of a woman, or access to reproductive care; it is purely about the business of slaughtering babies, for any reason, as our new ACLJ Film “Abortion, Inc.” will reveal.

After a person is born, it is immoral and, in many cases, unlawful to discriminate against that person based on their gender, race, or disability. For example, the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits employers from discriminating against people with disabilities, and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 makes it illegal to discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.

Extending anti-discrimination protections to the unborn should be hailed as an advance of our civil liberties, and a constitutional right. Yet, Planned Parenthood condemns such action as an attack on a woman’s right to abortion-on-demand. However, under current Supreme Court precedent, a woman does not have the constitutional right to abort her unborn child whenever and wherever she wants. The Supreme Court of the United States has held that states have the right to put restrictions on abortions.

Demanding the right to abort an unborn child because of the child’s gender, race, or possible physical or mental disability is reminiscent of the social philosophy of eugenics. Eugenics is the idea that we can create a genetically superior people by weeding out all the people with “bad” genes. This idea has two major flaws: first, it presupposes that there are people of lesser worth than others and second, it allows for the “superior” people to terminate the inferior, as well as dictate who the “inferior” are. Anyone who is familiar with Planned Parenthood and its founder, knows that this is exactly the shocking and barbaric foundation of the organization.

Passing this law shows that the citizens of Indiana recognize that all human life has intrinsic value and it is simply wrong to allow anyone to kill an unborn child, let alone simply because they don’t like the gender, race, or potential disability of the child. Indiana has taken a stand against such a position and the ACLJ is standing with them. All life has value and it is worth protecting, despite what Planned Parenthood, or anyone else may say.

The ACLJ is preparing an amicus brief in this case to defend the defenseless and uphold this commonsense pro-life law. Be a part of history. Add your name on to our brief below.
