Patel is now appealing her conviction and pro-abortion organizations are standing behind her and misleading their members regarding the facts of the case.
Below are some examples of their online efforts to mislead their members into thinking a woman who abandoned her newborn child in dumpster is somehow innocent.
Any one of us could have been Purvi Patel. How else will state governments punish women for their reproductive decisions? #FreePurvi— Planned Parenthood (@PPact) May 23, 2016
Purvi Patel has spent a year+ in prison for her pregnancy outcome. Learn about her case? https://t.co/nRL4ClFLwE pic.twitter.com/8G5zxw6QJj— Planned Parenthood (@PPact) May 23, 2016
For Planned Parenthood and NARAL defending infanticide shouldn't come as a huge surprise as the differences between abortion at late stages of pregnancy and infanticide are minimal. If people are horrified by Patel abandoning her newborn child at 25-30 weeks gestation in a dumpster, then shouldn't they also be horrified by late-term abortions where children are dismembered in the womb?
