October 7, 2020 (LifeSiteNews.com) – It could easily be argued that one–third of Gen X, Millennials, and Gen Z in the U.S. have been killed by abortion since the Supreme Court imposed abortion on demand across America in 1973. But Planned Parenthood’s president is worried that losing the so-called right to abortion is this generation’s fight.
“Every generation has their fights and this is ours,” Alexis McGill Johnson, Planned Parenthood president and CEO, told Fast Company, an American business print and online magazine in an interview this week.
Johnson is concerned Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination to the Supreme Court will tip the balance of the court towards a pro-life majority. “After the Senate confirmed Justice Kavanaugh,” Johnson said, “state politicians worked quickly to introduce more than 300 abortion restrictions and passed 25 abortion bans in a single year, many of which are working their way through the court systems right now.”
Johnson suggested moving forward with a Supreme Court nomination and appointment is insensitive in light of the suffering Americans are enduring because of the coronavirus. “Senate Republican leadership is ramming through a confirmation process while continuing to ignore the harms wrought by the pandemic and our nation’s collective pain—it’s unacceptable, and the majority of Americans agree.”
Yet, the pandemic did not seem to hurt Planned Parenthood’s bottom line. Abortion centers were deemed “essential” in many states while many family businesses were shut down – some permanently. Johnson admitted Planned Parenthood visits last spring were significant, “At the height of the pandemic, between April and June, Planned Parenthood health centers conducted nearly 800,000 visits—including telehealth visits—to get people what they need.”
Pandemic concerns were not the only things discussed in the interview. Johnson was asked about Planned Parenthood’s undeniable racist orgins and the disproportionate amount of blacks affected by abortion. She chalked it up to systemic racism.
“As an organization, we are over 100 years old. There’s no institution in this country that’s not implicated by growing up in a world of white supremacy and misogyny. So, we have to find a systemic solution to a systemic problem.”
Planned Parenthood aborts more than 300,000 children each year.
PETITION UPDATE (9/26/2020):
With President Trump's nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court left by the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, we are closer than we have been in decades to seeing Roe vs. Wade overturned.
We now encourage the Senate to confirm Barrett as the next Associate Justice of the Supreme Court.
Judge Barrett has a fantastic track recond on sanctity of life issues, has seven children, and is a devout believer. She is the perfect remedy for Ruth Bader Ginsburg's radical pro-abortionism.

And then, please SIGN this petition telling the High Court that it's now time to end the activist Roe vs. Wade judgment. Thank you!
PETITION UPDATE (6/29/2020):
In a decision which has imperiled more abortion-minded women, sentenced more preborn to death, and upset pro-lifers across the nation,the United States Supreme Court decided 5-4 to strike down a Louisiana law requiring basic medical precautions in the event of abortion complications, with Chief Justice John Roberts reversing his own past decision to uphold a similar Texas law.
Liberal Justice Stephen Breyer wrote the majority opinion, which held that the Louisiana law was unconstitutional for the simple fact that it was “almost word-for-word identical” to the Texas one the court already struck down in 2016.
In his concurring opinion, Chief Justice Roberts acknowledged that he had “joined the dissent in Whole Woman’s Health and continue to believe that the case was wrongly decided. The question today however is not whether Whole Woman’s Health was right or wrong, but whether to adhere to it in deciding the present case.”
We call on the Supreme Court to stop supporting the culture of death and overturn Roe vs Wade, now.
PETITION UPDATE (1/20/2020):
Hundreds of thousands of people will gather in Washington, D.C., this coming Friday, January 24th, for the March for Life. They will be praying for an end to Roe vs Wade, as the Supreme Court will hear a crucial, abortion-related case later this year in March. United our voices can change the course of history. Sign this petition TODAY! (LEARN MORE BELOW)
PETITION UPDATE (1/3/2020):
In advance of the Supreme Court's hearing arguments in an important abortion case later this year in March, 207 U.S. Senators and Representatives have signed amicus briefs supporting a Louisiana law requiring abortionists to have admitting privileges at a hospital nearby an abortion center.
Some of these supporting briefs also suggest that now is the time to reconsider Roe vs Wade as sound law.
Please SIGN this petition, calling on the U.S. Supreme Court to strike down Roe vs Wade.
More than 60 million Americans have been slaughtered in their mother's wombs as a result of Roe v. Wade. This activist, unconstitutional ruling in 1973 has left countless women emotionally and psychologically scarred.
It was believed by many that Roe would be overturned in 1992 with Planned Parenthood v. Casey. Despite having eight Republican-appointed judges at the time, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 to uphold it.
Since then, major gains have been made in the fight for life, and many lives have been saved.
However, Roe v. Wade remains the law of the land, leaving millions of defenseless pre-born children vulnerable to murder.
According to a 2016 study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 35% of aborted babies are African American, despite black women only making up six percent of the U.S. population. 19% of aborted babies are Hispanic.
We thus again call on the court to do everything they can to end Roe vs Wade.
Now is the time for pro-lifers to join together and ensure that all of God's children have a right to life.
Roe v. Wade must come to an end!
