More on what the Black Community says about Planned Parenthood here.
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.
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.
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.
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)
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.
The president of the largest chain of abortion clinics in the nation actually had the audacity to claim that lives are at stake in this election. TheStranger.com cited Cecile Richards from a rally held recently in Washington State:
“We’re in the most momentous election in terms of reproductive rights that most of us have seen in our lifetime,” Richards told a room of supporters at the Washington State Convention Center, where she praised Washington Governor Jay Inslee and the state’s Democratic senators Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell. “Lives are at stake in this election.“
Planned Parenthood admits to aborting over 300,000 babies annually and receiving hundreds of millions of dollars in tax revenues. So, by admitting that “lives are at stake,” in this election, perhaps Richards, who also thinks we need to “humanize” abortion is referring to the ongoing investigation into their aborted baby body parts scandal. Or maybe, it is the complete disregard Planned Parenthood has for the safety of women who come to them for abortions. Women like Tonya Reaves whose so-called “safe/legal” abortion landed her in the morgue or the many women who are removed from the abortion chain in ambulances. One can only guess.
In their interview, the Stranger, quotes Richards as admitting that abortion on demand was “literally on the ballot in November.”
Members of Congress have “passed more restrictions on reproductive access in the short time they’ve been in office than any Congress I’ve known of,” Richards told me. “I think Roe v. Wade is literally on the ballot this November.”
Earlier this week, the Planned Parenthood CEO was in Wisconsin to stump for Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. She told supporters, who gathered at the home of a Dane County gubernatorial candidate, that “This is sort of the pinnacle of everything we’ve fought for all our lives.” At the Wisconsin meeting Madison.com reports that Richards claimed this election would be the biggest election in terms of investment from Planned Parenthood’s political action committee. And they are not kidding.
For the first time in a presidential election, Planned Parenthood Action Fund, endorsed Hillary Clinton.
In their endorsement of Hillary Clinton, Richards called the planning of children, which, according to Hillary and Planned Parenthood, includes the right to kill the preborn in the womb, “Absolutely fundamental to everything we can do.”
Hillary Clinton, Planned Parenthood’s idol second only to their eugenics founder Margaret Sanger has been a long time advocate of abortion even defending the gruesome Partial Birth Abortion procedure.
Hillary Clinton recently referred to the preborn in the womb as ‘unborn persons,’ telling Chuck Todd that although they are persons they do not have Constitutional Rights.
Well, under our laws currently, that is not something that exists. The unborn person doesn’t have constitutional rights.
That dangerous mentality is right in line with Planned Parenthood who, in 2009, Planned Parenthood gave Hillary Clinton their top award, the Margaret Sanger Award. Now, Planned Parenthood hopes to reward Clinton by ushering her into the White House. But, with the potential of another eight years of radical abortion politics, I would agree that one thing is for sure this election, lives really are at stake!
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.
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.”
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.
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.”
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.
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.
In 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.”
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.”
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.”
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.
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.
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
North Carolina 47.6%
South Carolina 40.6%
New York 39.7% (44.1% in New York City alone)
New Jersey 30.2%
West Virginia 9.5%
South Dakota 9.3%
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
If you are like me and have been watching the horrific undercover videos on Planned Parenthood you are asking yourself, how much more does the public need to know to oppose this monstrosity? Sadly, the answer to that question depends on who you are. To the pro-life crowd you don’t need one more piece of evidence to shut Planned Parenthood down permanently and prosecute them for crimes against humanity. But to the die hard abortion advocates it would appear that little will persuade them against this evil. However, if you are an average American relying on the news media for truth, you may not even know yet that there ever was an undercover sting.
As someone who has researched Planned Parenthood from it’s conception, one thing they have relied upon is the ignorance of the public. And, as a result, there are few storms this deceitful organization has not weathered well. In their early days, founder Margaret Sanger along with many of her board members openly advocated eugenics. Some ague that eugenics was simply the “culture in that day” but I contend that Sanger knew full well what she was pushing and who it targeted. And, the absolute horror of Sanger’s agenda has become even more apparent as research continues to unfold just how evil eugenics was. Victims of eugenics number in the thousands as so-called “feebleminded,” mostly Blacks, were targeted for forced sterilization under that program.
Research on the topic has revealed that eugenics was the exact same philosophy that led Hitler’s Nazi regime in Germany into it’s dark days of the Holocaust, horrifying the American public. At this time, Sanger and her board, who had organized under the name “American Birth Control League” began to discern that open promotion of eugenics may not be in the best interest of their overall agenda. This led to a change in the organization’s name from the American Birth Control League to Planned Parenthood,a much less sinister sounding name.
But, if eugenics did not scare the American public away, neither would the organization’s decision to start doing abortions. Sanger’s followers in her Planned Parenthood movement understood that forced sterilization eugenics programs were beginning to be opposed in the courts. Their agenda of limiting the births of the so-called “unfit” was threatened unless of course they embraced abortion. For those asking “didn’t Planned Parenthood always do abortions” the answer is no. It is a little known fact that Margaret Sanger herself did not advocate for abortion, in fact, she called abortion the killing of a “baby after it has begun.” But, when Sanger’s more permanent eugenic sterilization solutions towards a “race of thoroughbreds” was opposed the organization turned to abortion, and ironically, in a cunning PR move, they chose a Black chairman to introduce it. But, that is another story for another day which you can read in more detail here.
The majority of the American public has little knowledge of Planned Parenthood’s beginning days, especially how their founder, Margaret Sanger was embraced by the Klan even referring to the Klan as a “good group.” In her autobiography, the Planned Parenthood founder detailed her encounters with the Klan, writing, “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.”
Imagine the American public or the media tolerating any other organization whose founder passed on her ideas to the Klan even “honoring” politicians and so-called notables with an award named after said Klan speaker? Yet, this is what Planned Parenthood does year after year after year and the media is not only silent but many of it’s members have been the recipient of the award. If the media had one ounce of honesty they would grill Planned Parenthood on why they call the former Klan speaker a “hero” while handing out Margaret Sanger awards like candy.
And, if that was not bad enough, left wing, abortion loving politicians also give Planned Parenthood cover. Top of that list would be 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton who said she “admired Margaret Sanger” during her acceptance of the award. Despite all the covering up of Planned Parenthood’s agenda and activities, the truth is leaking out through groups like the Center for Medical Progress. In addition, the excellent work of groups like Live Action and Life Dynamics who have exposed Planned Parenthood’s racist agenda, is starting to have an impact as well.
Over the years, Planned Parenthood may have successfully woven their tentacles into the American culture, but their days of deceit are coming to an end. This tax dollar guzzling abortion business may receive approval from politicians and the American media but the American people are waking up to what Planned Parenthood is all about. So, while pro-lifers may be growing weary of watching tape after tape after tape of these horrific Center for Medical Progress videos – we cannot allow the truth to go unnoticed. If the media refuses to call Planned Parenthood to task, we must take the truth to the American people ourselves and do it over and over and over again until it sinks in and crumbles this giant for good.
