Group seeking to ‘win justice’ for people of color joins with group aborting them

Planned Parenthood, with its deep ties to the eugenics movement, is behind yet another attempt to reach people of color. According to an April 2018 USA Today article, “Planned Parenthood Votes, Center for Community Change Action, Color Of Change PAC and the Service Employees International Union are behind the ‘Win Justice’ program….” What USA Today doesn’t say is that pro-abortion billionaire George Soros is the one funding “Win Justice” — which the IRS shows was set up in March — to the tune of $3 million dollars. A March 2018 search at the FEC website revealed Soros was the only contributor at that time. What’s more, as of the writing of this article, reports show funds have not been spent on specific campaigns. Rather, the money received by “Win Justice” is going to Planned Parenthood.

Since April, additional donations trickled in — some from Soros family members and $1 million from the SEIU. The July 2018 report shows “Win Justice” disbursed $301,000 to Planned Parenthood Votes.

SEIU’s involvement is no mystery. The SEIU is a major funder of left-wing organizations and is well-known for promoting abortion. Former Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards’ husband, Kirk Adams, has held several leadership positions at this powerful union.

But it certainly seems counterintuitive for groups supposedly concerned with minorities to join ranks with an organization steeped in eugenics — an ideology that manifested itself in many ways, including the forced sterilization of many Black citizens. From the documentary Maafa21:

Planned Parenthood’s roots in eugenics date back to their founder Margaret Sanger, who was a member of the American Eugenics Society, and who was an invited speaker to members of the Ku Klux Klan. As Live Action News previously reported, many within Planned Parenthood’s organization and other population control groups thought coercion might be needed to stem the growth of people groups they deemed “unfit.”

Color of Change (COC), launched in 2005, exists, according to its website, to build “a new, effective strategy for changing the rules society lives by, and ending the injustices Black people face.” Likewise, the Center for Community Change (CCC), founded during the civil rights struggles of the 1960’s, says on its website that it works “to build the power and capacity of low-income people, especially low-income people of color, to change their communities and public policies for the better.”

In 2017, Dorian Warren, CCC’s incoming president, attended Planned Parenthood‘s national conference.

On the surface, CCC cloaks its abortion/Planned Parenthood agenda. Its 2018 “Path to Power” document says nothing about these issues, until you scroll near the end where they quote Cecile Richards (recently honored by CCC) for Planned Parenthood’s shared goals… to recruit people of color.

Planned Parenthood and Margaret Sanger are well known for their recruitment of members of the Black community to promote a eugenics agenda. Sanger recruited Black ministers to her infamous “Negro Project,” while Planned Parenthood added Black leaders to its organization to counter suspicions of “Black genocide” in the 1960s and 70s.

According to CCC’s 2017 annual report, money is flowing to CCC from a variety of left-wing organizations, many which have bankrolled the abortion industry for years, including Soros’ Open Society Foundation:

Color of Change was sought after by Open Society for its U.S. Programs Opportunities Fund (USP) because COC had “younger, social-media savvy African Americans.”

According to Open Society Board notes, “USP staff members have played active roles in providing consultative support and referrals to technical assistance, fostering connections to funding leads… organizing briefings, and engaging in conversations with grantees about how we can use our positioning and access to be a thoughtful and constructive partner, not just a funder.”

Open Society assisted COC to “aggressively help it raise resources, within USP and with other funders, so that it may stay on track with rapid expansion that now includes more than 900,000 online members and a 16 person staff.”

CCC was also funded by Open Society, as detailed in documents from 2013 and 2014.

Tragically, instead of fighting for the civil rights of all people, including preborn persons in the womb, these Black community organizers are aiding Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the nation, in its unjust killing of minority children in the womb.

While change can be necessary, it should not come on the backs of innocent babies.

What’s at stake for Planned Parenthood in 2018 midterm elections?

Planned Parenthood, vote

Taxpayer-funded abortion corporation Planned Parenthood has announced it is joining other “progressive” groups to invest an “unprecedented” $30 million to influence who is elected to key state and federal offices in the 2018 midterm elections. In addition, Planned Parenthood has vowed to spend $20 million through its own political action committees in campaigns across several states. But these millions are not really as unprecedented as Planned Parenthood wants the public to believe, as it has poured an extremely large amount of money into elections over the years to elect pro-abortion Democrats, some with less than successful results.

Major Democrat donors, like Deborah Simon, have given money to Planned Parenthood’s political super PAC, Planned Parenthood Votes:

Soros family money is also flowing into Planned Parenthood’s PAC. In July, Andrea Soros Colombel, daughter of billionaire George Soros and member of the Open Society Board, donated $1 million.

According to media outlets, the abortion corporation said it plans to spend $20 million, targeting candidates in eight to ten states. In Minnesota, former Planned Parenthood staffer Tina Smith is running for Senate.

CNN reported that the move is designed to “help Democrats,” adding, “The initial list of targets includes eight states: Arizona, Florida, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. It comes on top of $4.5 million spent on last year’s governor’s races in Virginia and New Jersey….”

“This is our last chance to flip some of those governors’ seats before redistricting,” Deirdre Schifeling, the executive director of Planned Parenthood Votes, told CNN.

A September 2018 article published by Fortune claims Planned Parenthood Votes is investing more than $4 million into 24 House races ahead of the midterm elections in November.

The spending spree under the political PAC, “Win Justice” is a joint effort from Planned Parenthood Votes, Center for Community Change Action, Color of Change PAC, and the very political Service Employees International Union (SEIU). (More on these groups in a separate article.) $3 million to jumpstart the campaign came from pro-abortion billionaire, George Soros.

Win Justice is currently spending heavily for the Bill Nelson campaign in Florida, where Nelson reportedly “has a long record of fighting against measures to ‘defund’ Planned Parenthood.”

On top of millions from Planned Parenthood, pro-abortion Emily’s List has vowed an unprecedented $37 million.

There are multiple reasons the abortion giant and its abortion cronies are dumping millions into local, state and federal elections:

  • Judges on the state and federal level can uphold pro-life regulations and laws, as well as free speech protections outside abortion facilities.
  • City/county commissions can decide what programs and organizations to fund or contract with.
  • Local school boards can choose to keep Planned Parenthood’s sex education out of their schools.
  • State lawmakers can pass pro-life laws and investigate abuse.
  • Governors can veto abortion legislation, sign pro-life legislation, issue executive orders to prohibit tax funding of abortion organizations, and more.
  • State attorney generals can investigate fraud, abuse and any number of illegal activities within the abortion industry.
  • Federal (House and Senate) lawmakers can introduce, support and vote for pro-life legislation and continue to investigate abuses within the abortion industry.
  • Lawmakers will also have a say over upcoming Supreme Court picks, probably one of the most important issues at hand today.

Also at the Federal level, lawmakers can send or withhold funding, influence appointments, control oversight, and issue important rule changes to key federal agencies such as:

  • Health and Human Services (HHS), where Title X family planning grants are flowing to Planned Parenthood to the tune of $60 million a year, despite aiding abusers in the cover-up of child sexual abusers.
  • Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which can change current requirements of the abortion pill regimen by permitting the “home use” of the dangerous pills. FDA officials have also (to the outrage of the American public) contracted with Advanced Bioscience Resources (ABR) to obtain “fresh human tissues” from aborted babies. ABR has paid Planned Parenthood thousands for aborted fetal tissue.
  • The National Institutes of Health (NIH), where taxpayers fund millions of dollars for human fetal tissue experiments, which may contain tissue from aborted fetuses, is estimated to spend $103 million in FY2018 and $95 million in FY2019 on these potentially gruesome research programs.

Tax dollars to Planned Parenthood from various agencies total over a billion dollars, according to the Charlotte Lozier Institute, which found:

From 2013 to 2015, Planned Parenthood spent a total of $1.5 billion in federal program funds, including combined federal and state funds under federal programs. Of this total, Planned Parenthood received $1.2 billion in reimbursements from Medicaid, and the remaining $289 million came from various programs under the Department of Health and Human Services as well as the departments of Agriculture, Education, Homeland Security, Housing and Urban Development, and Justice.

The 2018 midterms are critical if pro-life voters want to keep the gains they have made on the state level and even more important if voters hope to continue to encourage Congress and the Trump administration to keep their promises to defund the nation’s largest and most profitable abortion corporation.

Live Action News has previously documented that, despite Planned Parenthood’s many abuses, year after year it receives $1.5 million taxpayer dollars every day, while ending the lives of 900 preborn babies through abortion. With so much on the line, is it any wonder this “healthcare organization” is vowing to spend millions to protect this cash cow?
