Less than a week after a gunman killed three people in an attack on a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, the American Family Association declared on its Facebook page that Planned Parenthood is worse than the terrorist group ISIS because they “kill babies in far greater numbers” and “in just as barbaric ways”:
The AFA shared an article written by its “director of outreach and intercession,” Joseph Parker, who makes the comparison at greater length:
The immorality and barbarism of ISIS is almost daily in our faces. And we are both horrified and outraged…rightfully so. And yet…here in America we kill babies in far greater numbers than the victims of ISIS and in just as barbaric ways. The fear of ISIS has created a global refugee crisis. People are fleeing in huge numbers in countries where ISIS is known to be established. Yet the babies in the wombs of their mothers in our nation cannot run and they cannot hide. And we slaughter them by the thousands every day.
ISIS has a systematic method of financing their fear and killing operations all over the world. We here in the U.S. have Planned Parenthood, who have a very “efficient” baby killing operation that functions daily. And our government uses our tax money to help fund Planned Parenthood to the tune of between one and two million dollars every day. Planned Parenthood can insist they provide numerous services to women all they want but their main reason for existence is to kill babies, plain and simple.
ISIS beheads its enemies. What does Planned Parenthood do? It kill babies, sometimes by tearing them limb from limb. Sometimes they use a vacuum so strong that it tears the baby apart. Sometimes they poison and burn the babies in the womb. And they don’t stop there. They even sell the baby parts for profit! They sell whole babies, babies’ livers, hearts, lungs, etc. Even ISIS doesn’t do that! Planned Parenthood makes ISIS look like a bunch of amateurs! ISIS has killed their thousands and Planned Parenthood has killed tens of millions!
How can we condemn ISIS and not even defund Planned Parenthood? How can we demand the world rid itself of ISIS while paying Planned Parenthood to do the same? How is what ISIS is doing evil but what Planned Parenthood does, a service?
UPDATE: The AFA doubled down on Twitter:
