CSI, ‘Clueless’ actress blasts Planned Parenthood: ‘Stop targeting black women and aborting our children’
USA, October 8, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) - African American actress-turned Fox TV commentator Stacey Dash, best known for her starring role in ‘Clueless,’ has launched herself into the Planned Parenthood scandal with a vengeance, accusing the nation’s largest abortion provider of preying on poor Black women and unborn babies.
On her blog at Patheos.com, Dash wrote this week: “I am so sick of hearing Planned Parenthood and their abortion allies on the Left claim to be pro-women and pro-minorities. The facts just don’t back up their boasts. If you are so pro African American communities, Planned Parenthood, stop targeting black women and aborting our children.
She continued: “If you care so much why don’t you start actually empowering women to love and care for their children no matter the circumstances they find themselves in. If you truly believe in African Americans, then start telling them they do have the power and ability to take care of their children and raise them instead of pressuring them to kill them in the womb.
“Your bottom line is not worth the blood on your hands!”
Highlights of Dash’s career include her role starring alongside Alicia Silverstone in Cher’s 1995 'Clueless,' and she has continued steady film and TV work, including appearances on CSI. Last year she began appearing on Fox News as an analyst.
With a checkered past, including an appearance nude in Playboy magazine, Dash wasn't a figure in the conservative world until 2012, when she announced to her Twitter following she was switching her vote from Barack Obama to Mitt Romney “based on the content of his character not the color of his skin.”
She reportedly received death threats as a result but also a supportive telephone call from Romney’s running mate, Paul Ryan.
Dash responded earlier this week to Planned Parenthood’s recent press conference boasting of its services to Black American women. “But as I have written about before,” responded Dash, “their ‘vital’ work actually means they are aborting a disproportionate number of black babies and profiting from charging their mothers for the abortion and then selling their body parts.”
In her blog attack, Dash cited reports that Planned Parenthood locates a disproportionate number of its abortion facilities in Black neighbourhoods because that is where there is money to be made. The abortion rate among Black women is triple that among white women.
Planned Parenthood’s roots in eugenics with a racist bent have come under attack from other quarters recently.
In August a group of Black pastors protested when the Smithsonian Institution included a bust of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger in an exhibit on social justice. Sanger is widely perceived as a eugenicist who promoted artificial birth control to reduce the birth rates of so-called inferior races.
Tying the two threads together, Back pastor and bishop E.W. Jackson said, “We should not only take [Margaret Sanger] out of the museum, we should defund Planned Parenthood – not spend a dime of tax dollars on Planned Parenthood. The woman was a racist.”
