Why Simone Biles Wouldn't Be Alive If This Group Had Its Way


The Planned Parenthood industry prides itself on giving women "options," including abortion. A tweet by the abortion provider praising five female Olympians didn't go over well.

People responded with comments like "thankfully their parents 'chose' life."

Although Planned Parenthood's tweet embraces women, they do not address the fact that this picture may never have been possible had Simone Biles' mother made a different decision about her pregnancy.

She was a young, single mother addicted to drugs and alcohol.

Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, believed women like her shouldn't give birth to babies.

"By all means, there should be no children when either mother or father suffers from such diseases as tuberculosis, gonorrhea, syphilis, cancer, epilepsy, insanity, drunkenness and mental disorders," Sanger once said.

"I think the greatest sin in the world is bringing children into the world that have disease from their parents, that have no chance in the world to be a human being practically… Delinquents, prisoners, all sorts of things just marked when they're born. That to me is the greatest sin-that people can-can commit," Sanger said.

Yet, Biles' mother had her daughter, who will be known as one of the greatest athletes and Olympic gold medalists in American history.

Biles is described as being "fearless" despite the challenges of life. Her story is inspiring to many in America and around the world.

She taught herself to do back flips off her family's mailbox before she even took a gymnastics class. It was a daycare field trip that sealed the deal when it came to the sport she loves. The then-6 year old saw the older girls doing flips and twists and started copying them.

The reality is one in three black babies are killed in the womb. Pro-Life group Live Action found black women make up 13 percent of the female population but 28 percent of the abortions in the United States.

Planned Parenthood provides most of those abortions. The majority of the group's surgical abortion clinics are located within walking distance of African American or Hispanic/Latino neighborhoods - a total of 79 percent of them, according to U.S. Census data from 2010.

The number of babies aborted in America now stands at 59 million since the U.S. Supreme Court legalized abortion in 1973 with its Roe v. Wade decision.

Pro-Lifers point out when the fundamental right to life is taken away, talent can be lost forever; and, the rest of those like Biles never get the chance to live--or even dream--of the possibility of a gold medal.
