Dr. Ben Carson appeared on Your World with Neil Cavuto this week and spoke about Planned Parenthood, calling abortion the number one killer of black people. Later in the week, he was asked about his comments on the O’Reilly Factor by guest host Eric Bolling and stood by his statement. Ken Meyer of Mediaite has more...
As Bolling asked him about abortion rates in black communities, Carson responded by saying it was a matter of deciding whether those black lives matter as much.
“The number one cause of death for black people is abortion, and I wonder if maybe some people might at some point become concerned about that and ask, why is that happening,” Carson said. He went on to continue his point about Sanger’s alleged eugenics leanings, saying that if Parenthood employees learned about her, they’d be less keen to defend their practices:
I encourage people to go and read about Margaret Sanger and go and read about the beginnings of this organization so that you know what you’re dealing with. One of the ways that they’re able to perpetrate the deceit is because people are not informed. The more people are informed, the less likely these kinds of things happen.
This comes on the heels of a July report from the American Mirror which showed that more black babies are aborted than born in New York City.
As you can probably imagine, Carson’s comments drove the left positively bonkers. Take a look at these headlines:

The bad news for Planned Parenthood is that the series of shocking videos released over the last several weeks is starting to have real impact.
Jennifer Haberkorn of Politico reports:
Human tissue firm cuts ties with Planned Parenthood after videos
StemExpress, one of the tissue companies that works with Planned Parenthood, is cutting its ties with the women’s health organization after a series of sting videos that have prompted congressional inquiries.
“We value our various partnerships but, due to the increased questions that have arisen over the past few weeks, we feel it prudent to terminate activities with Planned Parenthood,” the company said in a statement. “While we value our business relationship with Planned Parenthood, that work represents a small percentage of our overall business activity and we must focus our limited resources on resolving these inquiries.”
Bear in mind, that this happened despite the best efforts of the MSM to ignore the videos. I’ll leave you with this thought from Michelle Malkin:
Imagine if the media covered the #plannedbutcherhood videos with as much energy as they are covering Obama's Spotify playlist...
