UNBELIEVABLE: Planned Parenthood Condemns Supreme Court for “Tearing Families Apart”

From the Daily Caller News Foundation:

Planned Parenthood’s political action committee ironically condemned the Supreme Court’s 4-4 split on President Obama’s immigration executive order Thursday in a tweet saying the mega abortion provider opposes “tearing apart families.”

The Supreme Court tie has the effect of upholding a lower court which ruled Obama’s order freezing certain deportations was an illegal use of executive power. Planned Parenthood Action Fund, a sister organization to Planned Parenthood that focuses on political advocacy, was deeply distressed by the tie, declaring on Twitter that ‘human dignity has no borders.’

A few other Twitter users noted the statement’s irony, given Planned Parenthood’s status as America’s largest abortion provider. Some referenced the fact that many abortions specifically rely on a procedure in which a fetus is torn apart so that its pieces may be safely removed from the mother. Others observed that Planned Parenthood apparently does believe in borders for human dignity.

Planned Parenthood Action Fund also condemned the ruling in a statement on its website, where it continued to use rhetoric that could also be applied in an abortion context.

“It could … rip millions of families apart,” spokeswoman Daniela Ramirez said.

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
