Minority Empowerment Group Praises Former Planned Parenthood Prez
Written by Saynsumthn Blog
A group which highlights the contributions of minorities has spotted a former Planned Parenthood president.
According to their website, Minority Inventors Empowerment was created in 1994 as a non profit organization geared to educate and bring full awareness of past, present future generations of the history of minorities.
On their Facebook page, which shows 96,858 likes, the group highlighted the contributions of Faye Wattelton, calling the former Black Planned Parenthood president an, “American Social Activist for women rights and gender equality.”
They attempted to paint the advocate of abortion on demand as inspiring writing, “Alyce Faye Wattleton was born on July 8, 1943 in St. Louis. She was raised in a religious home her father was a minister and also worked as a factory worker…In New York she was exposed to the risks of botched abortions and suffering women faced during that phase in their lives. Faye began a passion for social activism this eventually led to her career in women’s health advocacy, eventually being named the Executive Director For Planned Parenthood of Miami Valley in 1970. From 1978 to 1992 Faye served as president and CEO of Planned Parenthood Federation of America. Her career in leadership for the organization led to the non profit growth becoming the nation’s seventh largest nonprofit, providing services to four million Americans yearly. During her presidency at Planned Parenthood Federation of America, from 1978 to 1992, Wattleton transformed the organization into the politically engaged entity that it is today, while at the same time dramatically increasing its health-care services. Anticipating that the 1980s would bring many political challenges, Wattleton restructured the organization so that it could respond to the new environment created by the Ronald Reagan administration and the rise of the Religious Right. She also led Planned Parenthood’s growth as a health-care provider. By the time she left the organization, it had more than 170 affiliates in 49 states and Washington, D.C., and operated more than 800 health centers.”
Planned Parenthood is the number one provider of abortions in the nation. They were founded in eugenic racism and place their centers in minority communities.
During her tenure as Planned Parenthood’s Black president, Faye Wattleton, admitted that the organization received donations from people for racist reasons. In a debate with Senator Bob Dornan, Wattelton stated, “ As a matter of fact Mr. Dornan, if I may finish, we have received contributions from people who want to support us because they want all welfare mothers and all black women to stop having children.”

Planned Parenthood’s decision to place Wattelton, a Black woman, as their president was extremely strategic. The organization had been using Blacks for years to push their eugenics goals. In fact, there was plenty of discussion on how the image of Planned Parenthood as one that wanted to eliminate the Black race was portrayed within the Black community.
In February of 1966, Sidney A. Hessel of the Planned Parenthood League of New Haven [CT.] wrote to Planned Parenthood leader, Alan F. Guttmacher this letter (experts): “ Since the luncheon phase of the last board meeting I have been very much concerned. I do not know if your report was the bombshell to the others that it was to me, but the fact that the Urban League, NAACP, etc. were actively and vocally naming PP*WP [Planned Parenthood-World Population] a racist organization shocked me. I remember as long ago as 1935 hearing the then Catholic inspired reaction from the Negro community, “The whites want to keep our numbers down so they can rule us.” However, to hear this view point promulgated in 1966 by the leaders of the Negro group was a shock. More upsetting was the apparent acquiescent nod of the PP*WP spokesperson to the accusation. We can and should admit that our efforts have been geared toward the low socio-economic segment of the population-and probably the Negro population more than others…As to Negro board membership- Should a person be elected to the board because his skin is brown or yellow? Isn’t this also racism? Do the leaders of the Negro community have the time to give to Planned Parenthood over and above their other commitments? Let’s put the burden of cure on them and ask the leadership of the NAACP, CORE, the Urban League, etc. to submit names of qualified people to our nominating committee on the same basis as our affiliates…If we tell our story and stick to our viewpoint often enough we will be believed.”
In a letter from Helen P. Stanford (ACSW) to Mrs. Anne Huppman, Executive Director Planned Parenthood Association of Maryland dated May 14,1968, Stanford tells Huppman , “The charge of Black Genocide as it relates to PP [Planned Parenthood] is being heard more frequently, and I suspect there will be much more of this kind of feeling. This makes it all the more important for us in PP [Planned Parenthood] to focus a great deal of our attention on ways to reach poor urban whites, to put greater emphasis on fostering maternal and child care facilities and to push toward developing social services for family planning by the community. If our services can move in this direction , we will begin to erase the image of birth control, as a planned way of limiting blacks.”
Then the same year that Planned Parenthood World Population approved unanimously a policy recognizing abortion and sterilization as proper medical procedures, they elect the first Negro as Chairman, Dr. Jerome H. Holland.
Holland pledged his support to the organization and said that those who called birth control a form of “genocide” , “Are not aware of the real meaning of Family Planning and its uses.”
That same year, Eugenics Society officer, Frederick Osborn, wrote, “Eugenic goals are most likely to be attained under a name other than eugenics”
Osborn signed Margaret Sanger’s “Citizens Committee for Planned Parenthood” published in her review in April of 1938.
