Planned Parenthood praises César Chávez who opposed abortion
Planed Parenthood known for their eugenics beliefs wastes no time or opportunity to market to minorities. As this blog has shown before, Planned Parenthood’s marketing to the Black community dates back to their founder, Margaret Sanger’s Negro Project where she believed that recruiting blacks would help them see her racist organization in a better light.
So, flash forward to today and we see Planned Parenthood releasing the following statement honoring César Chávez and, “his commitment to ensuring justice, dignity, and fair treatment to people everywhere.”
Statement from Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood Federation of America:
“Planned Parenthood shares César Chávez’s belief in fair treatment for everyone; we believe that all women and their families deserve the highest quality of affordable health care no matter who they are and where they live – no matter what. We know that health disparities remain a serious issue that is undeniably linked to poverty, lack of access, racism, sexism, and discrimination in all of its forms. As we continue to be inspired by César Chávez’s legacy, we know that these structural inequalities can only be changed through collective action – that’s why we are committed to working together with our partners to break down these barriers and to transform our world from one divided by disparities to a world united by health equity.”
Doesn’t that just sound delightful? NOT!
Just one tiny little factoid Planned Parenthood has left out of their praises of the Mexican-American labor leader, César Chávez’s believed his people were targeted by eugenics and he opposed abortion.
“We could have genocide in reverse here,” said Chavez.
“Who the hell is getting the pill? The Mexican and Negro. Do you want to wipe us out?” he asked. (captioned from the film, Maafa21, watch it here.)
According to one of Chavez’s closest aids, Gilbert Padilla, United Farmer Workers (UFW) did not pass out contraception in their clinics, “We don’t believe in contraception or in abortion which isn’t allowed in our clinic either,” Padilla told the St Petersburg Times in 1975.
Padilla was responding to a question the reporter asked regarding Chavez’s opposition to population control and planned parenthood.
“Historically, contraceptives and abortions have never been used in our clinics…” Padilla stated.
