Faye Wattleton first Black president Planned Parenthood

Despite the fact that Planned Parenthood’s founder Margaret Sanger promoted eugenics, it was actually under another eugenicist leader, Alan F. Guttmacher, that Planned Parenthood began referring for and eventually committing abortions. At the exact same time that abortion was being pushed publicly, the organization elected a Black chairman to roll out this agenda. All of this transpired in the late 1960s, a time when America was in conflict over the struggle for the civil rights of Black Americans.

During this time frame, many of the organization’s leaders were concerned about overpopulation. The organization’s history is steeped in eugenics, and this ideology manifested itself in many ways, including the forced sterilization of many Black citizens. As laws about these eugenics courts began to be challenged, a new tool of eugenics was making its way across the land: abortion.

Even though many within Planned Parenthood’s organization and other population control groups thought coercion would be needed to stem the growth of people groups they deemed “unfit,” Guttmacher, by now a Planned Parenthood president, was able to convince his friends that abortion, at first in perhaps a voluntary way, would be a better solution. However, there was a slight problem, because Black citizens and other minority groups were already suspicious of birth control efforts aimed at them. How would they feel about abortion?

Blacks Charge Genocide from abortion

The solution for Planned Parenthood was to bring Black leaders to the organization’s board, in an effort to convince Black Americans that Planned Parenthood’s efforts were not genocidal. This strategy was not a new one; Planned Parenthood’s founder Margaret Sanger — who gave a talk for the Ku Klux Klan — had already implemented the so-called “Negro Project” to accomplish the exact same thing. Memos between Planned Parenthood staffers and leadership indicated a great concern over how the Black community viewed their efforts. In response, Planned Parenthood’s public relations machine also reached out to Black publications, as they had already done with push for birth control.

In 1967,  the Pittsburgh Branch of the NAACP had criticized the swarming of Planned Parenthood facilities into minority neighborhoods. Other leaders like H. Rap Brown and Fannie Lou Hamer had called abortion “Black genocide.” And, as late as 1973, a study published by the American Journal of Public Health,”Fears of Genocide Among Black Americans as Related to Age, Sex, and Region,” found that Black men and women had a level of unease about “family planning.” Researchers Castellano Turner, Ph.D., and William A. Darity, Ph.D., concluded that Blacks were more suspicious when “family planning” was under the control of Whites. “It is noteworthy that the greatest degree of agreement is found where the issue of black control of family planning (as against white control) is at issue,” they said.

After dialoguing internally about the unease of the Black community, the suggestion was made to add Black members to Planned Parenthood’s board; this took place at the same time that Planned Parenthood was calling for the decriminalization of abortion. According to a New York Times article from November 14, 1968, the first time that Planned Parenthood went on record calling for abortion, they also elected their very first Black board chairman to roll out the new agenda — Dr. Jerome H. Holland, who, according to media reports, “pledged his support for the group’s program saying that those who call birth control a form of genocide are ‘not aware of the real meaning of family planning and its uses.’”

First Black Chairman of Board elected by Planned Parenthood 1968

Holland was no stranger to Planned Parenthood. He had been on the general board of directors for some time, serving on the executive committee of Planned Parenthood-World Population by 1963. He served as vice-chairman in 1967, where he presented Planned Parenthood’s infamous Margaret Sanger award to John D. Rockefeller III, also a population control advocate.

Holland was also added as chairman of the Board of Guttmacher’s newly formed Center for Family Planning, which would later be named the Guttmacher Institute and become a “special affiliate” to Planned Parenthood.

But Holland’s post as chairman of the board of Planned Parenthood was short lived.

In 1970, Holland was named ambassador to Sweden by President Richard Nixon; however, the headlines of the first Black chairman of Planned Parenthood had seemingly done their job. Holland was openly endorsing abortion as a “health matter” between the woman and her doctor.

The same year Planned Parenthood elected its first Black chairman of the board, Frederick Osborn, a founding Eugenics Society officer connected to Planned Parenthood, 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. Some speculate that Planned Parenthood’s infamous slogan “Every Child a Wanted Child” may have originated with Osborn.

A few years later, a new Black leader would emerge to reinforce the push for abortion within Planned Parenthood: Faye Wattleton.

After 62 years as an organization, why did Planned Parenthood wait until 1978 to elect the very first Black female as president? Like Holland,  Wattleton was not a novice where abortion was concerned. She had been with Planned Parenthood for a while, serving as a volunteer in the early 1970s and eventually serving as director of the Dayton affiliate.

At a press conference held in February of 1978, then president-elect of Planned Parenthood Wattleton told the media that she was “putting the world on notice” that the organization was going to be much more aggressive on abortion rights. “What has happened is that we have allowed them [right-to-lifers] to have center stage,” Wattelton said, “I’d like to say those days are over.”

Wattleton then vowed to restore — “to the poor” — access of abortion under Medicaid.

Wattleton was asked if her leadership of Planned Parenthood as a Black woman would alleviate suspicions within the Black community linking abortion and her organization to Black genocide. Wattleton responded, “I don’t think a lot of people are yelling genocide anymore, because I’m Black. I’m in a watchdog position on these issues and no one should assume I’ve been co-opted. What better way is there to guard against those types of abuses?”

Wattleton then said that the Black community should be more concerned about quality of life than “increasing our numbers.”

Faye Wattleton first Black president Planned Parenthood

Wattleton served as president of the abortion corporation for 14 years, where, among other radical abortion advances, she helped to legalize the sale of the RU-486 abortion pill in the United States. Under Wattleton’s leadership, Planned Parenthood’s budget grew from $90 million in 1978 to $384 million in 1990. For her service and dedication to the eugenics-minded organization, in 1992, Wattleton received Planned Parenthood’s Margaret Sanger Award. Despite Sanger’s known eugenics and Klan connections, Wattleton once referred to her as “[t]he great heroine of our time,” telling Hubbard News in 1979 that Sanger would be proud of Planned Parenthood’s progress.

But the idea that Blacks would no longer be targeted for eugenics because a Black woman was at the helm of a eugenics organization was short-lived. During Wattleton’s tenure at Planned Parenthood, she stated that supporters of Planned Parenthood contributed to the abortion giant to “keep the Black population down.” On CNN, in a debate with Bob Dornan, an outspoken pro-life member of the US House of Representatives, at that time, Wattleton, admitted, “As a matter of fact… 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.”

And also clipped in the documentary film, Maafa21, below:

Wattleton went on to help form the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, she has been described by some in the media as “a pioneer, a crusader, a media star and a rebel of sorts.”

Today, many within the Black community still see abortion as a tool of eugenics, and the abortion statistics show that it has become a leading cause of death of Blacks in the nation. Margaret Sanger’s vision of limiting births among certain races may not have begun with abortion, but it appears to have led to abortion.

Tragically, today, as a result of Guttmacher continuing Sanger’s eugenics agenda by introducing abortion to Planned Parenthood, over 800 preborn children of all races die there every day from abortion.

Planned Parenthood staffers arrested for: theft, embezzlement, shop lifting

Planned Parenthood staffer charged with felony embezzlement

A fired Planned Parenthood staffer has been charged with felony embezzlement in Oklahoma County District Court, according to a local media outlet. Kelly Lee Smith, 38, worked at Planned Parenthood’s first facility in the state to offer abortions, located in Warr Acres. A report published by Newsok.com said the abortion staffer was arrested October 11, 2017, after she allegedly used a Planned Parenthood credit card to buy lingerie, hotel rooms, amusement park attractions, and a cruise.

Authorities allege that between May and August of 2017, Smith fraudulently charged over $23,000 across nine states and Mexico. According to NewsOk.com, Planned Parenthood fired Smith on August 28. The paper reported that additional unauthorized credit card charges by Smith included clothing, pet supplies, beauty products, waxing services, electronics, pedicures, home decor, child care, and fast food, according to the affidavit.

Police reported Smith embezzled an additional $2,424 in cash that was supposed to be deposited into the Planned Parenthood bank account, the paper added.

Smith is not the first Planned Parenthood staffer to be accused of theft.

Planned Parenthood staffer sentenced Buffalo News

In July of 2013, a Planned Parenthood employee who worked as the organization’s accountant pled guilty to second-degree grand larceny after stealing over $100,000 from the organization.  WIVP reported at the time, that between August 2012 and March 2013, 44-year-old Melissa Kwoka forged checks from Planned Parenthood of Western New York to herself and her husband, according to a criminal accusation by the Erie County District Attorney’s Office.

Planned Parenthood employee forged checks

According to the Buffalo News, Kwoka was originally sentenced to six years in jail and five years probation on the contingency that she repay $102,733 to the abortion corporation. The paper reports that, “The judge ordered her to make monthly payments for 10 years of $647.78 to Planned Parenthood to cover $77,733 of the stolen amount. The judge also ordered $208.33 monthly payments to M&T Bank, where the checks were drawn, to cover $25,000 the bank paid Planned Parenthood for failing to catch a portion of the thefts.”

However, after failing to abide by the terms and pay the stolen funds back, in June of 2015, Kwoka was sentenced to three years in prison.

Melissa Kwoka sentenced

Why this thief was hired by Planned Parenthood, which receives over half a billion dollars from the taxpayer each year, is a mystery to begin with. Live Action News previously reported that Kwoka had three previous convictions for theft offenses before her employment with the abortion business. In addition, Kwoka was accused of stealing over five hundred dollars from a friend’s bank account while on bail after her embezzlement conviction.

David Nova

In 2011, a Planned Parenthood executive in Virginia was jailed on charges he stole wine from a Roanoke county store. David Nova, vice president of Planned Parenthood Health Systems in Roanoke, was charged with three counts of petty larceny. According to Roanoke.com, which reported the story at the time, “The charges stem from bottles of wine Nova took through a self-checkout line at the Cave Spring Kroger. The incidents occurred on two separate dates in January, according to online court records.”

Nova is known for defending Planned Parenthood after Live Action undercover investigations revealed Planned Parenthood staffers helping an actor posing as a pimp obtain abortions for minor girls. (Video below)

According to a report published by Life News, Nova claimed to have reported the incident to police after the “pimp” left his facility:

On February 4, David Nova, vice president for Planned Parenthood Health Systems Inc, told the News Virginian that ‘police were notified after the man left.’

‘The employees on these edited tapes in Roanoke and Charlottesville acted professionally in their interactions with the fake patient,’ Nova said in a released statement. ‘In both cases, they promptly reported the incidents to their supervisors.’

But FOIA’d documents obtained later by Live Action indicate that this was not true.

For his crime, Nova was ordered by a judge to serve three weekends in the Roanoke County Jail. But, according to media reports, the charges were dismissed after Nova completed his jail time. Nova’s attorney called his arrest “personal” and said it has nothing to do with his job.

In 2004, Nova, then CEO of Planned Parenthood of the Blue Ridge received Planned Parenthood’s “Jimmy Award,” to “help advance the Vision for 2025 by rewarding bold and creative thinking.”

A newsletter published by Planned Parenthood Health Systems since the incident indicates that this did not affect his standing with Planned Parenthood. In fact, Nova’s LinkedIn page currently shows that he is employed as VP of Communications and Strategic Initiatives for Planned Parenthood Health Systems, Inc., although the page may not have been updated.

In 2008, a Rhode Island ABC affiliate reported that the 59-year-old CEO of a Planned Parenthood in that state had been caught shoplifting at the Warwick Mall.

Planned Parenthood staffer accused of shop lifting

Planned Parenthood of Rhode Island President and CEO Miriam Inocencio, a veteran of the organization, was caught by police after allegedly stealing an $89 Liz Claiborne blouse from the local Macy’s Department Store, the report claimed.

990 filed by Planned Parenthood of Rhode Island in 2010 shows that the former CEO earned nearly $100,000 in salary and compensation in 2008.

Inocencio’s LinkedIn page reveals that she served as President and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Rhode Island from 1997 to 2008. She previously worked at Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s International division from 1984 to 1992.

The Planned Parenthood president pleaded out in court and agreed to reimburse the store. Inocencio told the media that she later voluntary resigned from Planned Parenthood but added that she was proud of what she accomplished during her 13 years as their director.

Planned Parenthood CEO Theft

In 2002, Inocencio, a black Cuban-American woman, indicated that she was originally hired by the abortion business because of her ethnicity.

In a piece she penned to Non-profit Quarterly, Inocencio wrote that prior to Planned Parenthood hiring her in the mid-1990’s, the staff at the Rhode Island Planned Parenthood was overwhelmingly white.

“For many years the PPRI staff and board had, with few exceptions, remained overwhelmingly white and middle-class and almost exclusively English speaking,” she said.

Inocencio added that “pressure from external systems […] along with other motivations resulted in the board’s decision to hire a CEO of color, and this made for a relatively smooth transition to a multicultural organization.”

What those “other motivations” were was not specified but as Live Action News has well documented, Planned Parenthood’s founder Margaret Sanger made sure that Planned Parenthood was knee deep in eugenics. And, the organization’s ties to eugenics continued far beyond their founder, as Live Action News previously documented.

Today, with the help of Planned Parenthood, abortion disproportionately affects minority Black and Hispanic communities.

In contrast to Planned Parenthood staffers who are involved in theft, former Planned Parenthood whistleblowers have exposed the abortion corporation’s own trouble with numbers by accusing the tax-funded organization of Medicaid fraud. And, as Live Action News has documented, Planned Parenthood has been cited in several states for overbilling abuses and Medicaid fraud. In addition, Planned Parenthood has been cited for violating patient privacy and has been exposed for failing to report child sexual abuse.

MLK niece: Planned Parenthood a “well planned killing machine”

Posted in Alveda King, Black Babies, Black Conservative, Black Genocide, Black Lives Matter, Black Women, Planned Parenthood and Black Women with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on June 11, 2015 by saynsumthn

REPUBLISHED FROM LIFE DYNAMICS BLOG

Dr. Alveda King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., has recently called abortion giant Planned Parenthood a “killing machine” in front of a California city counsel.

In May, King was invited by the Imperial Valley Coalition for Life to address the El Centro City Council about a new Planned Parenthood facility in the area which is seeking to perform abortions.

The Planned Parenthood clinic is located near the Mexico border where 80 percent of residents are Hispanic.

Alveda King at El Centro meeting

King is outspoken about the way that Planned Parenthood targets the Black community and she now feels they have their sights set on other minorities.

There is a disconnect in the community that must be addressed in prayer,” King stated .

“Many people know that Planned Parenthood is after money offering abortions and harmful byproducts and in that process they target the most vulnerable, American women and families, Latinos and African Americans. Now, they are after the women of Mexicali and their babies because they are easy prey to their lies that they offer “safe, legal and rare abortions.

“Women don’t need death care we need help,” King told the Council.

racialtargeting

A report published by the pro-life group, Life Dynamics, details the way Planned Parenthood sets up their centers in minority communities.

When a state has multiple population control facilities in zip codes with minority populations that exceed 125% of the state’s overall minority population common sense says that racial targeting in the plausible explanation,” Life Dynamics president, Mark Crutcher writes in the Racial Profiling Report.

According to the lasted abortion states published by the CDC and dated November 28, 2014, in 2011 almost 56% of all abortions reported for race were done on minority women.

Maafa21 Banner

King, who was featured in Crutcher’s documentary Maafa21 , which detailed the eugenics agenda of Planned Parenthood, called the abortion giant a killing place.

“Here in El Centro, there’s a new sports pavilion and a proposed Planned Parenthood facility. The MLK sports pavilion offers help for the youth of the community while the Planned Parenthood facility offers death…It’s time to pray that Planned Parenthood doesn’t move in with it’s well planned killing machine, ” she said.

“True civil rights begin at conception in the womb and should end with natural death,” MLK’s niece reiterated, “So, I ask you where are the civil rights for the baby?

Watch King address the council at 35:36 in the video below:

After several delays by the city, Planned Parenthood says they have received the necessary paperwork to open on a part time basis.

As of the date this blog is being published, the El Centro Planned Parenthood has not started performing abortions while they await a license from the California Department of Public Health.

#SayHerName Black woman dead after Planned Parenthood abortion now forgotten

Posted in Black Lives Matter, Black Women, Black Women killed from Abortion, Planned Parenthood and Black Women, Planned Parenthood Democrat Party with tags , , , , , , , , , on May 23, 2015 by saynsumthn

Well…they did it again.

Those hypocrites over at Planned Parenthood keep – shall we say “stepping in it?”

This time, the abortion giant tweeted to the hashtag #SayHerName which is exposing police violence against Black women.

Planned Parenthood police violence black women

So, in “solidarity” for concern of “Black women” the organization which was founded by a Klan speaking racist (watch Maafa21) tweeted this, “#SayHerName: We stand in #solidarity with the activists elevating police violence against black women.”

Sounds legitimate, right?

WRONG!

One would wonder that, if Planned Parenthood were concerned about the death of Black women why they allowed a 24-year-old Black woman to bleed for 5 hours inside their facility after a botched abortion before calling for emergency care.

Her name was Tonya Reaves.

TonyaReaves

According to the website SafeandLegal.com, after Tonya’s botched abortion took place, she was left to bleed for five and a half hours in the Planned Parenthood clinic without medical treatment. Furthermore, when Ms. Reaves was finally transferred to the hospital, it took several more hours for her to be treated properly, which indicates that Planned Parenthood did not provide the hospital with sufficient information regarding Ms. Reaves’ condition. The autopsy after her death revealed that Ms. Reaves had suffered perforation of the uterus.

tonya-reaves-0722

The care or shall we say lack of care, that Planned Parenthood gave to this Black woman was so egregious that Planned Parenthood of Illinois, Northwestern Memorial Hospital, and Northwestern Medical Faculty Foundation were order to pay Tonya’s family $2,000,000.00 in a wrongful death settlement.

PP LAwsuit Settlemen Tonya Reaves

What is interesting is that Reaves’ death was ruled an accident by the same Medical Examiners Office whose top administrator was appointed by what appears to be an avid pro-abortion Planned Parenthood supporter.

Accident?

Okay – I guess when this Black woman died we should just all accept the decision by those in charge – right?

WRONG!

Enter Toni Preckwinkle

Toni-Preckwinkle-President

A month prior to Tonya’s death, County Board president, Toni Preckwinkle appointed Daryl Jackson to head the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office until a replacement could be found for Dr. Nancy Jones, who was to resign.

According to the Chicago Tribune:

    In June of 2012, After months of evaluating operations and making lower-level changes at the troubled county morgue, Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle launched a major shake-up that included the departure of the two top officials at the medical examiner’s office.

    Out was Medical Examiner Nancy Jones, who will retire at the end of July, and Kimberly Jackson, the top administrator in the office. In was Daryl Jackson, a longtime state Public Health Department supervisor that Preckwinkle chose as the new administrator. And a nationwide search was launched to replace Jones.

In 2012, Preckwinkle appointed Jackson to executive director.

Toni Preckwinkle and Planned Parenthood

Curiously, the abortion giant has supported Preckwinkle in her political endeavors.

In April of 2012 Preckwinkle was a special guest at a Planned Parenthood gala.

PreckwinklePP

Cook County Board President was also in attendance at Planned Parenthood’s 2010 Campaign Kickoff !

And, later in 2015 Preckwinkle attended this Planned Parenthood event sponsored by Planned Parenthood Illinois Action (PPIA) to celebrate the 42nd anniversary of the landmark Supreme Court case Roe v. Wade which legalized abortion on demand.

Reboot Illinois reported that Preckwinkle is a large donor to Planned Parenthood Illinois Action PAC.

Toni Preckwinkel Planned Parenthood

When Tonya Reaves died after her July 2012 abortion, her autopsy was performed by the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office which ruled her death an accident.

Tonya Reaves Medical Examiner

Doesn’t it seem odd that the person in charge of appointments for the County Medical Examiner has been a HUGE Planned Parenthood supporter, participating consistently in their events for years, and when a Black woman’s death looks suspicious, the office she oversees rules it an accident?

But – then again – we are talking about the death of a Black woman and I am sure Planned Parenthood is glad they will no longer have to #SayHerName.

Medical Examiner Hid Info Showing Planned Parenthood Killed Patient

tonyareaves5autopsy

Operation Rescue, who requested a copy of the autopsy on Ms. Reaves, indicates that it was not provided the complete autopsy report — indicating six pages were omitted that place the blame squarely on Planned Parenthood’s shoulders. The copy the pro-life group received from the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office was missing the six important pages that further detailed Reaves fatal abortion injuries and noted that Planned Parenthood was where her abortion took place.

The sanitized copy sent to Operation Rescue contained no mention of Planned Parenthood. The omission was discovered when attorneys for the Thomas More Society, a pro-life legal group that also had filed an open records request for the report, compared notes with Operation Rescue.

Tonya Reaves LDI Brochure img406

At the time Ms. Reaves death became public, the pro-life group, Life Dynamics asked officials in Cook County to investigate Tonya’s death as “depraved indifference murder,” which they refused to do.

Coincidence?

Maybe not…

OTHER COOK COUNTY AND ILLINOIS OFFICIALS SUPPORTER PLANNED PARENTHOOD

Kimberly Foxx - cook county Planned Parenthood

As an additional point of interest, the Cook County Medical Examiner now employees the former President of the Board of Directors for Planned Parenthood of Illinois, Kimberly Foxx, who, according to her LinkedIn page, worked for the Cook County State’s Attorney Office during the time pro-lifers were calling for an investigation of Planned Parenthood.

Kimberly FOxx Planned Parenthood

In addition, Cook County Prosecutor Anita Alvarez has been endorsed by Planned Parenthood PAC according to this voting guide.

Foxx is now looking to replace Cook County Prosecutor Anita Alvarez.

MORE POLITICAL POWER SUPPORTING PLANNED PARENTHOOD:

LISA MADIGAN is the Attorney General of Illinois. According to the Chicago Tribune, Lisa Madigan became the first woman to serve as Illinois Attorney General when she was elected on Nov. 5, 2002.

In 2009, Madigan joined with the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), representing the Planned Parenthood Federation of America and others in a federal lawsuit.

Madigan answered a questionnaire on the positions she supported this way:

    I am pro-choice, and my voting as State Senator record backs this up. While I was in the Illinois Senate, I supported a woman’s right to choose as recognized by Roe v. Wade. I had a 100% pro-choice voting record, including supporting legislation to provide public funding of abortion services for low-income women.

    In the lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the parental notification law, it was my responsibility under the constitution to represent the defendants. When my office’s legal research showed that the law was constitutional, based on the fact that federal courts around the country have upheld parental notice laws, including laws that are more stringent than Illinois’, my office defended the law. In 2013, the Illinois Supreme Court upheld the law under the Illinois Constitution.

    In addition, working with Planned Parenthood, I have supported legislation to amend Illinois’ parental notice law.

In 2013, Madigan attended a Planned Parenthood fundraiser according to the Illinois Review.

Lisa Madigan Planned Parenthood

In 2014, Preckwinkle and Madigan attend a Planned Parenthood of Illinois Gala.

Planned Parenthood endorses Lisa Madigan

That same year, Planned Parenthood endorses the Illinois Attorney General.

In 2013, not only did Cook County President Toni Preckwinkle and Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan, celebrate the 40th anniversary of legalized abortion with Planned Parenthood of Illinois but so did Illinois Lieutenant Governor Sheila Simon, Representative Tom Cross (R-84), RepresentativeJan Schakowsky (D-9), Representative Bill Foster (D-11), and author Sara Paretsky.

In addition, some national political power showed up including former senior advisor to President Barack Obama David Axelrod, Senate President John Cullerton, Mayor Rahm Emanuel, and former Illinois state senator, comptroller, and candidate for governor, Dawn Clark Netsch, who was honored with the Dr. Marvin Rosner Lifetime Achievement Award.

In 2014 , Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle; U.S. Reps. Jan Schakowsky, Mike Quigley, Robin Kelly, Brad Schneider and Bill Foster; Durbin; Lt. Gov. Sheila Simon; state Sens. Heather Steans, Michael Frerichs, Toi Hutchinson and Dan Kotowski; and state Reps. Barbara Flynn Currie, Scott Drury, Robyn Gable, Greg Harris, Camille Lilly, Sara Feigenholtz, Dan Williams and Dick Durbin and other notables attended Planned Parenthood’s Gala.

Planned Parenthood police violence black women

SO, to tie this all together, as Planned Parenthood expresses faux concern for Black women in their #SayHerName tweet, they have forgotten the name of a Black abortion patient which died at their hands: Tonya Reaves. And, perhaps, just perhaps they avoided a depraved indifference murder investigation because of all their political clout.

Just say’n.

Planned Parenthood works with NYC to get Bronx women on birth control in “I’m on it” campaign

The Bronx District Public Health Office – New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, Montefiore Medical Center, Planned Parenthood of New York City, have launched an campaign to promote birth control in the Bronx.
Planned Parenthood Im On It

The campaign features websites in English and Spanish — www.imonitnyc.com and tengoelcontrol.org — which include an online birth control method selector and connects women to local providers, such as abortion giant Planned Parenthood.

The “I’m On It” campaign will serve as a model for the rest of the boroughs.

Organizers say that the goal is to get more women and men to consistently use birth control.

But the website promotes the abortion pill: Plan B as Birth Control.

Plan B

Planned Parenthood is the largest provider of abortions in the nation.

81.9 percent of babies aborted in New York City were Black or Hispanic according to the CDC Abortion Surveillance Report dated November 29, 2013.

Planned Parenthood: Cruelty to Women and an Affront to Women’s Health and Women’s Rights

By Elaine Riddick, Executive Director, Rebecca Project for Justice March 18, 2014

Planned Parenthood is not a sanctuary for women’s health as women have been made to believe. Many women have no knowledge of the cruel and callous history of Planned Parenthood.

Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood is an infamous eugenicist and population control advocate who opened the first birth control clinic in the United States in 1921. The clinic was called the American Birth Control League and was renamed Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) in 1942, and later she created the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) in 1952.

Planned Parenthood’s fundamental strategy for Population Control of Black and low income women was forced sterilizations and abortions. Margaret Sanger persistently dehumanized Blacks, low-income children, the disabled, mentally ill, immigrants, and impoverished women, by classifying them as “human weeds”, “spawning… human beings who never should have been born”.

Euphemisms and sterilization target code words, for example, “feebleminded”, were used to describe Black women like me, Elaine Riddick. I was forcibly sterilized at the age of 14 years under North Carolina’s inhumane forced sterilization policy. A policy that was derived from Margaret Sanger’s Planned Parenthood population control handbook, which spread across the United States by her loyal band of eugenicists and lobbying our elected officials. Those cruel and inhumane forced sterilization polices and abortion-on-demand policies were also exported to create the one-child policy in China; where mothers abandoned or killed their live birthed children to avoid persecution. IPPF programs through the US government also forcibly sterilized millions women and men in India.

Currently, Planned Parenthood uses an arsenal of abortions on demand lethal contraceptives such as Depo Provera and Norplant called the “DDT of contraceptives”. They are called the DDT of contraceptives, because they cause extremely lethal side-effects and are banned or restricted in the United States, Europe, India and Israel.

However, Planned Parenthood the largest distributor of Depo Provera circumvents restrictions, and typically, Blacks, Latinos, low-income and vulnerable women & girls are targeted and injected without full informed consent of lethal side effects. In the U.S. less than 2% of white women are injected with Depo Provera, and in Europe the use of injectables such as Depo Provera is virtually non- existent.

In 1998, the FDA sent a letter to Pfizer the maker of Depo Provera requesting an immediate halt to advertisements that misled women about risk and side effects of Depo Provera. However, this practice of misleading women about risk continues through Pfizer’s distributor Planned Parenthood, by target marketing to Blacks and Latinos while concealing details about side-effects on their websites.

In 2013, Israel restricted Depo Provera with funding from U.S. reproductive health funder Shira Saperstein of the Moriah Fund. However, in the United States Shira Saperstein still works with Planned Parenthood and abortion advocates to callously promote Depo Provera as a safe contraceptive for low income women in the U.S. and Africa.

They mislead women about lethal harm of increased HIV/AIDS and breast cancer and other debilitating diseases documented by the FDA and NIH.

Norplant was pulled from U.S. markets in 2002 is still implanted in economically deprived women globally and is promoted by the International Federation of Planned Parenthood and the Population Council with malice and forethought. Thousands of poor women have died from diseases caused by Depo Provera and thousands struggle with permanent damage but the US government is silent.

Therefore, my goal as Executive Director of the Rebecca Project for Justice is to seek a practical humane policy solution that institutes informed consent procedures to protect women.

To achieve that goal, we have devised a four point strategy:

1) Policy: Drafting legislation to present at Congressional Hearings with the Global Health and Judiciary Committees this year;
2) Lawsuits: Class action suit lead by Attorney Willie E. Gary of the Gary Law Group;
3) Prosecution: Through a detailed letter to Department of Justice, we are demanding prosecution of doctors and institutions such as Planned Parenthood that conspire to conceal lethal side effects;

and 4) Media: Creating petitions and a public relations campaign with Tanya Wiley of WPC Communications.
