Planned Parenthood’s Stunning Hypocrisy on Birthright Citizenship

After largest abortion provider declares Trump's idea 'harmful,' people push back: 'I am so confused — now you care about babies?'

Planned Parenthood, the nation’s leading abortion provider, weighed in on President Donald Trump’s reported plans to sign an executive order that would remove the right to citizenship for babies of noncitizens and unauthorized immigrants born on U.S. soil — so-called birthright citizenship.

The abortion giant tweeted out about the president’s plans regarding the 14th Amendment, “Despicable, egregious, unconstitutional. Eliminating #birthrightcitizenship would be incredibly harmful & is part of this administration’s radical, hateful agenda to stoke fear in our communities and contribute to many people’s already very real fear of deportation.”

Trump, during a recent “Axios on HBO” interview, said, “It was always told to me that you needed a constitutional amendment [to end birthright citizenship] … Guess what? You don’t.”

When told this was controversial, Trump replied, “You can definitely do it with an act of Congress. But now they’re saying I can do it just with an executive order.”

The reaction to Planned Parenthood’s tweet supporting birthright citizenship was immediate — as was the recognition of the blatant and rich hypocrisy of the abortion behemoth’s concern for migrant babies.

Planned Parenthood has been part of 7.6 million abortions since Roe v. Wade, according to the group’s own figures, as LifeSiteNews reported.

America’s largest abortion provider released its 2016-2017 annual report back in January, as The Daily Wire noted, and according to that report and former ones — and adding in figures supplied by pro-life organizations — Planned Parenthood has been responsible for the deaths of more than 7.6 million babies from 1973 through 2017.

“That means a population somewhere between the sizes of New York City and Los Angeles is missing,” noted The Daily Wire.

“Surely, this is the apex of hypocrisy,” commented one person of Planned Parenthood’s tweet.

“Super funny Planned Parenthood opposing anything to do with birthrights, you don’t even believe in births,” commented another.

“Planned Parenthood arguing FOR “Birthrights”? Let me check the irony meter,” said yet another.

Still another person chided, “Seriously. Is this a parody account? Eliminating birthright citizenship (which you clearly don’t understand even the basics of) complaint by a group that ELIMINATES BIRTH. What’s your stance on dismembering those trying to emigrate from the womb? Open borders then? No?”
