Dryfoos called 1st Guttmacher Institute Prez (Frederick Jaffe) “total bastard” and “abusive”

A former director of research for the Guttmacher Institute has described their first president as abusive and his conduct as sexist. On their website, the Guttmacher Institute names Frederick S. Jaffe as their first president, who “from 1968 (when the Institute was founded as the Center for Family Planning Program Development) until his death in 1978.”

Guttmacher describes Frederick Jaffe

But, in May of 1998, Sharon Zane interviewed Joy Dryfoos, a former director of research and planning for the Alan Guttmacher Institute who was not so complimentary. The discussion was part of the Carnegie Corporation Oral History of the Columbia University Oral History Research Office. Dryfoos is credited with originating the concept of full-service community schools and also for what she referred to as, “the Dryfoos formula for estimating the need for family planning.”

Joy Dryfoss

Joy Dryfoos

Dryfoos, who passed away in 2012, was an interesting woman who doesn’t hold back on her views of the Guttmacher family planning advocates she worked with. Her interview is full of behind the scenes snippets surrounding her association with school based clinics, The Rockefeller Foundation and Carnegie among other population control organizations. The 72-year-old Dryfoss ( at the time of the interview) told Zane how she got involved with the Planned Parenthood Research Arm, named after Alan Guttmacher.

Dryfoos begins the interview describing her childhood and then admits to Zane that although she was raised religious she claims that she was eventually “turned off” to religion at a young age, “I became a non-believer at a very early age, and I’ve never figured out how I figured that out, but I did. I was just totally turned off.”

After Dryfoos finished college, traveled a bit and got married she had one child but could not have more. Her husband George Dryfoos, did not want to adopt. In the early 1960’s Dryfoss said that three of her friends got together and started a group called, Research, Writing and Editing Associates. Eventually Dryfoos ventured out on her own, analyzing the 1960 census and writing research briefs. This is when her connection to Planned Parenthood’s research arm (at that time) began. As Dryfoos tells it:

    By about ’62 or ’63, one of these research briefs — through a connection of one of my pals –got to a guy who was on the research committee of national Planned Parenthood.

    I showed how you could use the census to project the need for childcare, low-income housing, and family planning; and it was the family planning one — that got picked up.

Dryfoos recounted how she met Population Council consultant and Margaret Sanger Award winner Christopher Tietze. According to a report in the New York Times Tietze believed that biological life begins at conception, he also believed that a fetus ”deserves the respect and protection that we accord people” only ”when it has become capable of surviving.” The times then quotes Tietze as saying:

    ”At present,viability is assumed by most doctors to be reached at about 24 weeks from the onset of the last menstrual period. However, some genetic defects may not be discovered until late in pregnancy. Is such a fetus viable? Is that meaningful life? I think not.”

In addition to Tietze, Dryfoos met American Eugenics Society member Charlie Westoff was was also a member of Planned Parenthood’s National Advisory Council. Westoff would eventually become the Executive Director of President Richard Nixon’s Commission on Population Growth and the American Future which opened up the flood gates of funding to Planned Parenthood. This Commission was headed by John D. Rockefeller and applauded by former Planned Parenthood vice president Frederick Jaffe, who also influenced Dryfoos.

In 1968, Jaffe founded the PPFA Center for Family Planning Program Development, which later became the Guttmacher Institute.

Dryfoos explains meeting these three:

    So pretty soon, I was summoned before this research committee, which was very prestigious in those days. It had, like, Ashley Montague and — oh, people you wouldn’t know: Christopher Tietze and Charlie Westoff (who’s still alive and still very much a leading demographer). So I met with them, and here I was, this cute young woman who had written all this stuff.

    So they were particularly interested in my idea of estimating the need for family planning through the use of the census data. One guy named Fred Jaffe was vice president of national Planned Parenthood for public information. He was trying to get Planned Parenthood and the rest of the world to recognize that there had to be federal funds for family planning. He saw in me this tool for coming up with a method of describing this need in a very researchy, not at all emotional may. It had to do with low-income women. It in addition to the census, was actually based on estimates of fecundity and sterility. Overtime, it became a work of science that was published in the American Journal of Public Health.

By 1970, Dryfoos recalled how The Population and Family Planning Act was passed and that she got to know some of the people on the research committee.

    They invited me to go to the Population Association meetings, and I got pretty interested in that field.

So interested that after going back to college, Dryfoos was recruited to work for what would become the Guttmacher Institute where she remained for the next 15 years. She described Alan Guttmacher as a “terrible administrator” who “was talking about abortion” and “knew how to flatter people” which, according to Dryfoos led to him being the figurehead. There she met Frederick Jaffe, the organization’s first president, who once authored a very controversial memo that advocated eugenics through compulsory sterilization and abortion.

    So I graduated, which then gave me the qualifications to do what I would have done anyway. Fred Jaffe hired me before I even got the degree. He was just waiting for me to get out, because he was putting together money for a new agenda. Alan Guttmacher, by then, was the president of the Planned Parenthood, and Fred was preparing the way to start something which is now the Alan Guttmacher Institute, but [then] it was called the Center for Family Planning Program Development. He said, “You’ve got to come and work there.” So I said, “Fine.

Dryfoos then told Zane how abusive Jaffe was. She also claimed the Guttmacher Institute president was committed to family planning as “a poverty issue.”

    He was a very interesting character. He should be written about. He’s a very important character. I’m not sure that there would be –I don’t know whether there would be a family planning program the way it was or whether there would have been legislation without him. He was also a total bastard. He was, as my husband would always say, he was like a German who was either at your throat or at your feet.

    He was very abusive. He was totally directed on one issue. He was just totally committed to this cause of family planning, as a poverty issue. He was an old leftist, an old union guy.

Adding later in the interview that :

    everybody in the national organization of Planned Parenthood hated him because he was so arrogant and mean, and these volunteer ladies really hated him, the ones that he didn’t sleep with, I might add. There was a lot of that stuff going on. But, I mean, this was the early days of Planned Parenthood as well. So he was a controversial character, but he was just so driven, and he knew how to drive Congress as well…

Dryfoos bragged that a formula she authored was used by Jaffe at Guttmacher as the reason family planning funding was so openly received.

    And, you know, we developed the most elaborate statistical analyses over some little point, like how many trained nurses we need in 1972 versus 1973 for family planning, and where they should be trained. But I think he was right. I think it was a very good strategy to come up –to get Congress, hook Congress with all this detailed planning. And he got all this stuff written into the legislation that not only provided money for family planning in clinics. They had to plan — there had to be a national plan, and the national plan was based on the Dryfoos formula for estimating the need family planning. So the money was allocated according to that formula That’s why we would keep tinkering with it, just because it was fun. But I could tell you a neighborhood — how many family planning patients there might be, with this thing. So we used it like magic. And this Center was very successful. It got huge federal grants and a big Kellogg [Foundation] grant, and we had a lot of money.

What did they do with all that money? Well according to Dryfoos, they started the McDonald’s of centralized family planning services.

    We got Model Cities money and OEO [Office of Economic Opportunity] money, and we would go into a community and develop a plan for coordinated family planning. It’s funny, because this is sort of the first iteration of this whole idea of services in one central location. But this idea was that they should form a corporation, kind of, at the community level and figure out where all the family planning programs should be and centralize the administration and the training and the supplies and all that stuff, and get the delivery of the services out to the neighborhood. As we always said, it was just like McDonald’s. It was the same theory. And that’s what we did. And we did that in a lot of communities. Eventually, I did it in a number of states and I had sixteen people working for me.

Dryfoos talked about the day she told Jaffe she was quitting, noting that instead of selecting a replacement she suggested he was sexist and chose a graduate student with “great legs.”

    I gave him a list of, like, twenty people who would be great, and by then he could pay a huge salary. In fact, he was paying me a huge salary. And could have had his pick because it was considered a good job. Instead, he hired a graduate student sort of type.

    When I asked him, he said she had great legs. And that might have been the truth. I mean, he might have just wanted a pretty young thing around. Strangely enough, she’s still there, and this is twenty years later…He [Jaffe] was just such a pain.

In 1978, the year Frederick D. Jaffe died, despite his conduct, Planned Parenthood honored Jaffe, by giving him their top award, the Margaret Sanger Award.

Racist Margaret Sanger praised by Planned Parenthood as Heroine

Racist Margaret Sanger praised by Planned Parenthood

Accolades to the racist founder of Planned Parenthood have been published by the organizations Colorado Affiliate. According to a Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains (PPRM) 2008 annual report, the organization wants you to think of them [Planned Parenthood] when you think of Sanger, writing “We Are Planned Parenthood” and calling Margaret Sanger a “Heroine.”

    Planned Parenthood is rooted in the courage and tenacity of American women and men willing to fight for women’s health, rights, and equality. Margaret Sanger, Planned Parenthood’s founder, is one of the movement’s great heroines. Sanger’s early efforts remain the hallmark of Planned Parenthood’s mission to:

    Provide contraception and other health services to women and men;

    Fund research on birth control and educate specialists and the public about the results;

    Advance access to family planning in the United States and around the world.

    Women’s progress in recent decades — in education, in the workplace, in political and economic power — can be directly linked to Sanger’s crusade for women’s reproductive freedom.

And again here.

Planned Parenthood Margaret Sanger Racist Heroine

Well…the largest chain of abortion clinics which targets minority communities for abortion left out a tiny detail about this alleged heroine:

SHE WAS A RACIST MEMBER OF THE EUGENICS MOVEMENT.

Planned Parenthood founder, Margaret Sanger, was a member in good standing with the racist American Eugenics Society. Sanger had board members who were known for their racist writings and Sanger published many of those in her publications.

EugenicsBoardSanger

Planned Parenthood was also steeped in eugenics and to this day their top award is called the Margaret Sanger Award, despite the fact that Sanger was an admitted Klan speaker.

Margaret Sanger and Autobiography

This is what Sanger wrote in her autobiography, “I accepted an invitation to talk to the women’s branch of the Ku Klux Klan…I saw through the door dim figures parading with banners and illuminated crosses…I was escorted to the platform, was introduced, and began to speak…In the end, through simple illustrations I believed I had accomplished my purpose. A dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered.” (Margaret Sanger: An Autobiography, P.366 Read it here https://ia802607.us.archive.org/1/items/margaretsangerau1938sang/margaretsangerau1938sang.pdf)

Sanger Autobiography Klan Speech
This blog has documented those views many times, so I will not go over them one by one here. If you want more information, I recommend the film, Maafa21 for documentation on Sanger’s beliefs.

But, interestingly, Planned Parenthood is not alone.

Hillary Clinton admires Margaret Sanger

Hillary Clinton has also praised the racist founder – read about that here.

Black eugenics victim endorses pro-life Ted Cruz

Posted in Black Conservative, Elaine Riddick, Ted Cruz with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on March 15, 2016 by saynsumthn

An African American woman who was the victim of eugenic sterilization has endorsed Senator Ted Cruz for president. Elaine Riddick, who was sterilized by the State of North Carolina without her knowledge or consent after she was raped and delivered her son as a teen told Live Action News that she is endorsing Senator Ted Cruz because he values life.

ElaineRiddick

Riddick, whose forcible sterilization was ordered by the Eugenics Board of North Carolina, is very outspoken on Planned Parenthood’s eugenic agenda. The organization was founded by Margaret Sanger, who pushed eugenic ideology.

“Euphemisms and sterilization target code words, for example, “feebleminded”, were used to describe Black women like me,” Riddick wrote in an Op-Ed.

    “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.”

This is Riddick’s story excerpted from the film: Maafa21:

Shortly after this interview Elaine Riddick testified before the North Carolina State Legislature in a successful effort to receive compensation for the sterilization. “They cut me open like I was a hog,” Elaine Riddick testified tearfully. Riddick told the lawmakers that her only crime was being poor, BLACK, and from a bad home environment.

North Carolina was not the only state whose eugenics programs were influenced by friends of Sanger or Planned Parenthood. In some parts of the country, Planned Parenthood was closely associated with these state eugenics boards and was often a referral agency for them.

Riddick told Live Action News that any politician who supports abortion and Planned Parenthood would never get her support. This is why she has been an outspoken advocate of Ted Cruz rather than Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump.

    “I think that Ted Cruz is good because he is young and knows the suffering of people. He is about life, he is pro-life. Black people’s chances of survival with Ted Cruz is maybe 98%. But with Hillary it is about 5% because of the abortions she supports.”

Elaine Riddick speaks about eugenics at pro-life rally

Elaine Riddick speaks about eugenics at pro-life rally

Riddick is referring to the high rate of abortion within the African American community. As a victim of eugenics herself, Riddick is convinced that the Black community had been targeted with population control specifically abortion. And the data backs up those suspicions. Research shows that family planning centers and abortion facilities often set up their locations in or near minority communities. In 2011, stats published by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) revealed that almost 56% of all abortions reported for race were done on minority women. According to the latest report dated November 27, 2015, in 2012, over 55% of abortions reported for race/ethnicity were performed on Black or Hispanic women. According to those stats, Black women had the highest abortion rate (27.8 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15–44 years) and accounted for 36.7% of abortions reported for race/ethnicity.

“Planned Parenthood’s fundamental strategy for Population Control of Black and low income women was forced sterilizations and abortions,” Riddick points out. She said that in essence “Black people are dammed if you do and dammed if you don’t” in this country. For Riddick, Blacks are either a target on the streets or a target in the womb and she believes that a person who values life in the womb, will value all life.

    “In order to come out of that dilemma it is Ted Cruz all the way.”

Riddick is very critical of the Democrat Presidential Candidates as well most notably Hillary Clinton whom she says once praised Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood:

    “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”.”

When asked about GOP Presidential contender Donald Trump, Riddick was slightly hostile:

    “Are you kidding me? He supports Planned Parenthood – bottom line. He supports taking and killing of Black lives. Anybody that supports Planned Parenthood, then, it’s not about human life. Donald Trump is definitely not pro-life. He said he’s a pro-lifer- he’s a liar. He’s not a pro-lifer if he supports Planned Parenthood.”

“Same thing with Hillary Clinton. She is lynching us in the womb,” she added.

Sen. Ted Cruz

Sen. Ted Cruz

As a Black woman, Riddick sees no other option beside Cruz, whom she said she loves because of his stand for life:

    “I love Cruz because he stands for life- number one. Anybody that stands for life deserves to have the chance. He will be a protector of all lives. He is the most awesome Christian. When you stand for life you have a heart. The other people they are gutless and will slip on a dime. Talk about betrayal – they will betray you.”

Alveda King: vote for candidates who oppose abortion and Planned Parenthood

Posted in Alveda King with tags , , , , , , , on March 8, 2016 by saynsumthn

Alveda KIng020278153_oAs we come to the end of Black History month, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King is encouraging everyone to vote for candidates who oppose abortion and the Planned Parenthood agenda. Dr. Alveda King, the niece of civil rights leader, Dr. Martin Luther King said in a written statement that not voting is not an option for her because too many people paid a heavy price for that right:

    “Not voting is not an option. Too many people in the suffragette and race wars in the U.S. (including my dad Rev. AD King, my uncle, ML King, and yes, me) struggled, and some even died for the right to vote.”

ALveda King NLK CIvil RIghts 72176_5950837280238376187_n

Alveda King has been an outspoken advocate for preborn children whose lives are targeted for death through abortion. She often compares their struggle for life as a civil right just as that of the African American community her Uncle, MLK, stood up to defend in the 1960’s. She also promotes the healing between the races and a spirit of love and unity to stand for those being targeted the same way her uncle did when the Black community was targeted. She warns those who will listen to focus on the real issues that matter and not the political spin:

    “America needs healing… Beware the spin games. Pray and vote for life because our generations are depending on deliverance.”

Today, Alveda King said she is committed to casting her vote for the person who is most aligned with her views. Like many pro-lifers these days, it can be a difficult task to select the right candidate for political office because they often fall short of standing firmly against abortion in every case.

“During past elections I “wrote in” names for candidates because of personal, or philosophical reasons, I couldn’t stomach some who received nominations,” Alveda said in her written statement. She called promises from certain candidates, an emotional spin trap:

    “Often politicians make unenforceable promises that make people feel good. We applaud those promises from candidates we like, because they strike a feel good chord. On the other hand, we attack those seemingly impossible unfulfilled promises from candidates we don’t prefer, because we want them to lose so that our candidates can win. It’s all an emotional spin trap.”

AlvedaMorebabiesAbortedthanBorn

Alveda has worked hard to expose the eugenics history of Planned Parenthood. She has called the targeting of abortion in the Black community paramount to Black Genocide. But today, given all that is at stake in today’s election, she has vowed to vote for the person that is most against the abortion agenda and who will oppose Planned Parenthood:

    “This time around, I’m committed to voting for whoever is against the abortion agenda and Planned Parenthood’s role in abortion on some level and who receives the nomination for the party who is most against abortion.”

Without endorsing any one candidate, Alveda said the choice is simple:

    “I’m just going to vote for the one most closely aligned to the position that human life of mothers and their babies is valuable from conception or fertilization until natural death (no abortion and no euthanasia for babies, poor, sick and infirm people); and that life and the liberty to be born is a human, moral and civil right.”

Timing of Planned Parenthood Sanger award to MLK suspicious

Posted in Alveda King, MLK, Planned Parenthood uses blacks with tags , , , , , , , , , , on January 18, 2016 by saynsumthn

The timing of when Planned Parenthood gave civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. their infamous Margaret Sanger award is suspicious in my view. As America celebrates the life of MLK, Planned Parenthood which takes lives will parade MLK around as a trophy. In 1966, Planned Parenthood gave MLK the Margaret Sanger Award and they knew exactly what they were doing when they did so.

MLK March 1147593_617588721624798_1700102717_o

A look at records from Planned Parenthood reveal that for many years, the organization which at the time promoted forced sterilizations of those they deemed unfit, had been discussing how they could win over the “Negro community.” Under a eugenics system, blacks and others deemed to be “Feebleminded or unfit” were sterilized by the state. Research has shown that Planned Parenthood was used by state sterilization boards to perform these surgeries.

A problem arose when the idea of state sponsored sterilization began to be challenged in court. If you put these events on a timeline, as I have, you see clearly that this was the time frame that Planned Parenthood began calling for legalized abortion. The problem they faced was that the Black community saw birth control and abortion as genocide. But, they also had a solution. To use what their founder Margaret Sanger had been successful with for years – they would use BLACKS themselves to introduce and promote abortion.

Internal memos within their organization, which I have read, indicate that Planned Parenthood was discussing a solution to this ever growing problem of Blacks being suspicious of them. A snap shot of how this plan to bring the Black community on board is broken down in a small way below.

malcolmxIn 1962, Wylda B. Clowes, a Black field consultant for Planned Parenthood and Mrs. Marian Hernandez director of the Hannah Stone Center, met with radical Black activist Malcolm X to “discuss with him his group’s philosophy concerning family planning”. They described the Malcolm X group as one that recruits mainly “low income Negroes”.

A June 19, 1962 memo from Eugenics Society Vice President and one time Planned Parenthood president, Dr. Alan F. Guttmacher, describes the meeting, “[ Malcolm X] responded in a positive way to the name [ Planned Parenthood] by saying that Black Muslims are interested in anything having to do with planning. He asked if Planned Parenthood has anything to do with birth control and offered the suggestion that we would probably be more successful if we used the term family planning instead of birth control. His reason for this was that people, particularly Negroes, would be more willing to plan than to be controlled…The mention of overpopulation reasons evoked questions on why major efforts to control population are directed toward colored nations , therefore this aspect was played down.

Malcolm X PP

Then in 1965, a letter was sent to Rev. Andrew J. Young of the Southern Christian Leadership Council, to engage his support in the birth control / planned parenthood movement. The letter is written on the University of Wisconsin Letterhead by an associate professor who begins by telling Young that his father was a sociologist in India aiding in population planning as a consultant with the Ford Foundation. The professor also admits to Young that his mother and mother-in-law are “ardent workers for Planned Parenthood.” He expressed to Young a, “fond hope for a marriage between the experts in birth control and the experts in the civil rights movement,” and sells it as, “one program that the civil rights movement would not have to finance.”

He explains how the Black community was a hurdle to Mr. Young, “many Negroes will be justifiably suspicious of white organizations, white physicians, and white social workers that seek to “limit the Negro population.” It smacks of racism and can offend people who are understandably sensitive on the matter. Planned Parenthood is itself reluctant to take any initiative for fear of the reaction from the Negro population as a whole as well as from civil rights leaders in particular,” the correspondence states. He ends by suggesting that, “ it is crucial that Negro leaders in the movement introduce the project to their Negro followers so that whites are not in the misperceived position of racist aggression.”

guttmachr

Then, in 1966, Dr. Alan F. Guttmacher, president of the Planned Parenthood Federation told a symposium at the University of California Medical Center that a sensitive area in the field of birth control was, “the belief that the white middle class was coercing their own poor and people with black and yellow skins to reduce family size because the middle-class whites are frightened of being outnumbered.

He solution comes in what was said next:

The only way the mounting feeling that birth control is a tool of racism can be handled, is to involve knowledgeable leaders from the minority groups who understand and are favorable to the philosophy of birth control. They, in turn, must translate their appreciation of the contribution which birth control can make toward family stability to their own people.”

A January 28, 1966 internal memo from Alan Guttmacher and Fred Jaffe, outlines the plan for winning over the Black Community. The memo begins by calling the new plan, a “Community Relations Program.” The “program” is to, “form a liaison between Planned Parenthood and minority organizations.” The plan, according to Planned Parenthood, will emphasize that “all people have the opportunity to make their own choices,” rather than, as the memo states, “exhortation telling them how many children they should have.”

One way to get the message is out is to “ get assistance from black organizations like The Urban League and the AME church,” and according to the memo they need to employ, “ more Negro staff members on PP-WP [Planned Parenthood-World Population] and Affiliate’s staff, as well as recruit more Negro members for the National Board- at least 5.”

Along with this Guttmacher suggests that they initiate cooperation with the National Medical Association [NMA], a Black medical association, and encourage them to establish a committee on reproduction and family planning. Guttmacher also hoped to secure at least three Negro physicians for membership on the PP-WP Medical Committee, and he planned to invite NMA leaders to address their convention. Also on the radar was a comprehensive plan to address the Black media by, “specially developed news and feature articles for Negro newspapers.”

Guttmacher ends by stating that the above suggestions are “long overdue” but stresses, “we do not need to panic. In fact, if we panic and continue to publicize the “problem”, we may well exacerbate it.

NOTE: In 1968, Jaffe founded the PPFA Center for Family Planning Program Development, which later became the Guttmacher Institute, Planned Parenthood’s research arm.

On January 11, 1966, Lammont Du. P. Copeland sent a letter to Alan Guttmacher which contained the advice of Dupont’s Public Relations Representative, Mr. Glen Perry regarding the attitudes of the Black community toward Planned Parenthood. Perry sought counsel from a black man who had been active with Planned Parenthood, Mr. Joseph Baker, who Dupont retained as a public relations adviser in the field of race relations.

Perry summarized the suggestions in a memo dated: January 10,1966, “Baker told us that Dr. Guttmacher is correct in feeling that civil rights leaders are beginning to take a hostile position toward population planning on the ground that it is an attempt to halt the growth of the Negro population.”

Baker strongly suggested to Perry that Planned Parenthood immediately open dialogue to the Black leaders, to “get their support and participation.

Martin Luther King Planned Parenthood

And he did, within a few months, Planned Parenthood gave their most infamous award to civil rights leader, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Planned Parenthood’s Margaret Sanger award was received by Mrs. Martin Luther King rather than MLK himself.

MLK PP

Interestingly, on the day after the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, a memorial service was held at Howard University in Washington, DC. As mourners left the auditorium, they encountered about 600 people attending a rally outside. Several speakers were heard warning the crowd that population control was being used as a weapon of black genocide. Among the speakers who gave this warning was noted civil-rights activist Stokely Carmichael.

It is doubtful that Martin Luther King understood Planned Parenthood’s eugenics past and he certainly had no idea that seven years after he accepted the Margaret Sanger Award, the United States would legalize abortion on demand. He had no way of knowing how Planned Parenthood would grab abortion and use it to target the Black community. Alveda King, the niece of Martin Luther King, Jr. explains this:

Planned Parenthood is now the number one provider of abortions in the nation. Today, research shows that family planning centers and abortion facilities often set up their locations in or near minority communities. In addition, the largest provider of abortions, Planned Parenthood was founded by a radical advocate of racist eugenics. As a result, the numbers of abortions performed on minorities and specifically Black women remain disproportionately high.

In 2011, the CDC revealed that almost 56% of all abortions reported for race were done on minority women. According to the latest report dated November 27,2015, in 2012, over 55% of abortions reported for race/ethnicity were performed on Black or Hispanic women.

CDC Abortions black hispanic

Among the 27 areas that reported abortions by race/ethnicity , non-Hispanic white women and non-Hispanic black women accounted for the largest percentages of abortions. According to the 2012 stats, Black women had the highest abortion rate (27.8 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15–44 years) and accounted for 36.7% of abortions reported for race/ethnicity while 18.7% of abortions were reported for Hispanic women. White women accounted for a slightly higher abortion percentage, 37.6% of reported abortions, but had the lowest abortion rate (7.7 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15–44 years).

In several states, Black Abortions reported for race broke down as follows:

Abortions on Black women 2012

Mississippi 63.6%
Georgia 59.5%
Tennessee 51.1%
Alabama 48.8%
North Carolina 47.6%
Delaware 43.4%
Michigan 48.2%
Virginia 43.9%
Missouri 41.1%
South Carolina 40.6%
Arkansas 39.7%
New York 39.7% (44.1% in New York City alone)
Ohio 39%
New Jersey 30.2%
Kentucky 25.8%
Texas 25.2%
Minnesota 23.6%
Kansas 22.5%
Indiana 27.6%
West Virginia 9.5%
South Dakota 9.3%
Colorado 7.2%
Oregon 5.9%
Utah 3.2%
Idaho 1.5%
Montana .8%

Martin Luther King Jr’s dream is dead for 56 million babies:

My friend Ryan Bomberger over at Too Many Aborted laments the fact that today, with abortion, MLK’s dream is dead:

In 1963 when Martin Luther King Jr. shared his dream with the nation, he never envisioned an America where ”reproductive justice” would end 56 million innocent human lives. His dream never pictured a nation where black boys and black girls would never be able to join hands with white boys and white girls, as sisters and brothers, because “freedom of choice” determined some humans are simply not equal. His dream never imagined that in the state where millions have been welcomed into a harbor that serves as a shining beacon of Liberty, millions would be violently deprived of their own life, liberty and pursuit of happiness.” Read more here

The Hillary Clinton campaign has announced that radical pro-abortion politician Wendy Davis will stump on Hillary’s behalf in the state of Iowa. For those who do not remember, former Texas state Senator Wendy Davis lost her bid against Governor Greg Abbott by more than 20 percentage points, or nearly 1 million votes. But, Davis’ real claim to fame was proudly defending late term abortion by standing for hours during a state Congressional filibuster. Weeks after Davis endorsed Clinton, the 2016 Democrat presidential candidate, decided to fly her to Iowa so Davis can campaign on Clinton’s behalf.

In her first act as a Hillary pundit, Davis poked at Carly Fiorina over her opposition to Planned Parenthood’s baby parts operation after they were exposed by the Center for Medical Progress in a series of undercover videos. “I think she’s part of the problem,” Davis told KXAN, “And she has demonstrated that she too is going to take a position that’s contrary to that many people in this country…” she said.

Even though Hillary Clinton claims to be an advocate for children, she is a long-time advocate of abortion, even late term abortion. She recently supported Planned Parenthood when gruesome videos released by CMP showed their top level staffers negotiating the price of baby parts. In 2009, Hillary Clinton praised the racist founder of Planned Parenthood. Margaret Sanger was known for her eugenics beliefs which targeted the Black community with sterilization. She also was a known Klan speaker.

On her campaign website under “issues,” Hillary reiterates her support of Planned Parenthood and abortion:

    Hillary will stand up to Republican attempts to defund Planned Parenthood, which would restrict access to critical health care services, like cancer screenings, contraception, and safe, legal abortion. She will fight to protect the Affordable Care Act, which bans insurance companies from discriminating against women and guarantees 47 million women and counting access to preventive care.”

Davis has also been a defender of abortion, having had one herself. She was dubbed “Abortion Barbie” by Conservative blogger Erick Erickson. During her failed gubernatorial campaign in Texas, Davis received funding from Planned Parenthood, NARAL, and the abortion lobby. Davis recently admitted to aborting her own daughter after 20 weeks because of a “brain deformation,” calling her abortion an act of “love.”

A message linking Wendy Davis’ abortion stand to Hillary’s posted to the “Women for Hillary Organizing Event” claims the campaign is “so excited to have Wendy Davis.” According to the Clinton campaign, Davis will travel to several venues in Iowa raging from Des Moines to Cedar Falls, Dec. 17-18, to talk about “Clinton’s commitment to protecting women’s access to health care and defending Planned Parenthood from Republican’s attacks,” code for “abortion on demand for any reason at any time.”

Over 55% of abortions reported for race/ethnicity performed on Black or Hispanic women, 2012

A new report on abortion stats published by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) indicates that abortions have decreased in the last year, a trend that has continued for the past 25 years but sadly remains disproportionately high among minorities. Because abortion reporting requirements vary from state to state, the numbers do not represent all abortions performed in the United States.

CDC Abortions numbers 2012 reported 2015

According to the latest data, published November 27, 2015, abortions fell by more than 30,000 from the previous year. In 2012, 699,202 abortions were reported to CDC, down 31,120 from the 730,322 abortions reported in 2011. From 2011 to 2012, the total number and ratio of reported abortions decreased 4% and the abortion rate decreased 5%. From 2003 to 2012, the total number, rate, and ratio of reported abortions decreased 17%, 18%, and 14%, respectively, and reached their lowest level in 2012 for the entire period of analysis (2003–2012).

AGE

The stats also showed that women in their 20’s accounted for the majority of abortions and had the highest abortion rates. However teens less than 15 years-old accounted for .4% of the reported numbers while those 15–19 years accounted for 12.2% of all abortions. From 2003 to 2012, the percentage of abortions accounted for by adolescents aged 15–19 years decreased 27% and their abortion rate decreased 40%. The numbers reflects polling data which shows that support for making abortion broadly illegal is growing fastest among young adults. In fact, for all Millennials in 2012, only 37% considered abortion morally acceptable.

RACE

Research shows that family planning centers and abortion facilities often set up their locations in or near minority communities. In addition, the largest provider of abortions, Planned Parenthood was founded by a radical advocate of racist eugenics. As a result, the numbers of abortions performed on minorities and specifically Black women remain disproportionately high.

In 2011, the CDC revealed that almost 56% of all abortions reported for race were done on minority women. According to the latest report dated November 27,2015, in 2012, over 55% of abortions reported for race/ethnicity were performed on Black or Hispanic women.

CDC Abortions black hispanic

Among the 27 areas that reported abortions by race/ethnicity , non-Hispanic white women and non-Hispanic black women accounted for the largest percentages of abortions. According to the 2012 stats, Black women had the highest abortion rate (27.8 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15–44 years) and accounted for 36.7% of abortions reported for race/ethnicity while 18.7% of abortions were reported for Hispanic women. White women accounted for a slightly higher abortion percentage, 37.6% of reported abortions, but had the lowest abortion rate (7.7 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15–44 years).

In several states, Black Abortions reported for race broke down as follows:

GESTATION

babyat20weeks

The largest numbers of abortions were performed in the early trimester. However, over 6.000 abortions were performed at 21 weeks or greater. A 2014 report published by the Lozier Institute found that the United States is one of only seven countries in the world that permit elective abortion past 20 weeks. Efforts to ban abortions after 20 weeks have been opposed by the abortion industry, specifically Planned Parenthood. While Planned Parenthood publicly claims that abortions late in pregnancy are done mainly for severe fetal anomalies, undercover videos by The Center for Medical Progress disputed that claim. Live Action News has documented this contradiction in detail here.

According to the 2012 stats, only 467,959 abortions were reported to the CDC by gestation and broke down by weeks as follows:

    Less than 8 weeks 308,058
    9-13 weeks 119,994
    14-15 weeks 16,274
    16-17 weeks 8,641
    18-20 weeks 8,812
    21 weeks and older 6,180

The CDC has been collecting stats on abortion since 1969 and data includes medical as well as surgical abortions. Although most reporting areas collect and send abortion data to the CDC, the data remains incomplete and stats that are submitted to the CDC are done voluntarily. In addition, the stats do not include abortions from every state including some states that tend to have high numbers of abortion clinics. But the yearly stats from the numbers that are collected indicate that abortions are decreasing.

This was confirmed by the Associated Press who surveyed abortion providers in 45 states earlier this year. Their data collected mostly from 2013 and 2014 found that abortions continued to fall in those years. According to the AP, declines were seen in states that have passed pro-life laws as well as in more liberal states.
