• Ohio Dem to ‘Black Lives Matter’ Drones: Target Planned Parenthood, Not Police

    It took Ohio Democratic state Rep. Bill Patmon to put both Planned Parenthood and “Black Lives Matter” agitators in their place.

    During a speech at a #WomenBetrayed rally Tuesday, where activist demanded Congress defund Planned Parenthood, Patmon said, “You hear a lot of demonstrations across the country now about ‘Black Lives Matter.’ Well they skipped one place. They should be in front of Planned Parenthood.”

    “You say, ‘Well, you’re kind of strident, aren’t you?,’” Patton said of people question his tactics. “I say, ‘No, not when 5,499 abortions are in Cuyahoga County, which I happen to represent, and 63 percent of them are black women.’”

    Indeed, the National Black Prolife Coalition says an average of 1,000 black babies are aborted every day. Nationally, nearly one in three black pregnancies ends in abortion each year. In New York City in 2009, 47%, or 40,798, of the city’s 87,273 abortions were performed on black women.

    “Black lives matter” and “American lives matter,” Patton said before announcing his plan to introduce a bill that would defund Planned Parenthood in Ohio.

    “It is my business, especially when 17 million of them are black women, 17 million–more than any other population–17 million that look and act and talk …similar to myself, but even more than that, they’re Americans, and they’re human beings,” Patmon said.

    “She would have been just what Planned Parenthood is looking for,” Patton said of his own mother, “not much education, a desire to succeed, and being told, ‘You can do this later. Let’s get rid of this one.’”

    “Well she didn’t get rid of this one,” he said.
