Actress Patricia Heaton took a decidedly pro-life stance Saturday on Twitter that will not win her many favors, or auditions, in liberal Hollywood.

Heaton, best known for her role on the CBS sitcom “Everybody Loves Raymond,” posted a tweet touching the “third rail” of liberal politics, Planned Parenthood. The tweet linked to a National Review article, “More Black Babies Aborted than Born in New York City.”

Margaret Sanger is the founder of Planned Parenthood, the largest provider of abortions in the country. Her critics say Sanger viewed abortion as a means “to exterminate the Negro population.”

The stats in the National Review article are staggering:

In 2012, black women in New York City aborted over 6,500 more children than they gave birth to.

Altogether, black and Hispanic abortions were 73 percent of the total of 73,815 abortions in New York City in 2012 [42.4 percent black, 31 percent Hispanic].

As expected, the rabid pro-choice community was quick to counter Heaton:

But by and large, the response was favorable, as it is rare to find a celebrity with the courage to stand up for values that are inconsistent with the liberal point of view that dominates pop culture.
