Since 1945, the Lasker Awards have been granted by the Albert and Mary Lasker Foundation to recognize “the contributions of scientists, physicians, and public servants who have made major advances in the understanding, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of human disease.” In a previous Live Action News report, Danny David detailed the reasons why the Lasker-Bloomberg Public Service Award to Planned Parenthood was based in anything but science.

But another piece of interesting information is this: Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger’s most infamous “Negro Project,” motivated by her belief in eugenics, was funded in part by none other than Albert Lasker.

In 1939, Sanger penned a letter to Clarence Gamble regarding her desire to use Black ministers in furthering her organization’s agenda, because, she said, “We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population,” and if it did, these ministers could “straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.” This is the project that The Albert and Mary Lasker Foundation chose to fund.

Excerpt: Margaret Sanger Letter to Clarence Gamble, Negro Project

Sanger not only founded Planned Parenthood, but met with members of the Ku Klux Klan, advocated eugenics, and supported the use of sterilization to rid the planet of the “unfit.”

In 1937, Mary Lasker, known then as Mary Woodward Reinhardt, was secretary of Sanger’s newly formed Birth Control Federation of America (BCFA).  According to Lasker’s website, Mary “made a donation to the American Birth Control League and subsequently joined its board.”

In 1939, Mary connected Sanger to her soon-to-be husband, Albert Lasker, to seek funding for Sanger’s “Negro Project.” He eventually gave Sanger $20,000.

To obtain the funds, Sanger, Reinhardt and Sanger’s secretary, Florence Rose, drafted a report on “Birth Control and the Negro,” skillfully using language that appealed both to eugenicists fearful of unchecked black fertility and to progressives committed to shepherding Black Americans into middle-class culture, according to New York University’s website for the Margaret Sanger Papers:

The report stated that “[N]egroes present the great problem of the South,” as they are the group with “the greatest economic, health and social problems,” and outlined a practical birth control program geared toward a population characterized as largely illiterate and that “still breed carelessly and disastrously,” a line borrowed from a June 1932 Birth Control Review article by W.E.B. DuBois. Armed with this paper, Reinhardt initiated contact between Sanger and Albert Lasker (soon to be Reinhardt’s husband), who pledged $20,000 starting in Nov. 1939. (“Birth Control and the Negro,” July 1939, Lasker Papers)

Then, in November of 1939, Sanger wrote to Albert Lasker requesting the funds, to “help” the Black community in the South “obtain birth control information.” Sanger also wrote, “If we can get the Negro universities and the Negro medical groups behind this project I think it will go over, I think, really big….”

LASKERS ACTIVE IN PLANNED PARENTHOOD 

Mary and Albert later married and their participation in Sanger’s organization continued after the initial “Negro Project” donation. By 1940, a committee to extend and develop the movement of “planned parenthood” was formed and consisted of nearly 1000 members, including Albert Lasker.

A New York Times article revealed that in February of that same year,  Albert donated $10,000 to the Planned Parenthood Committee.

Albert Lasker gives Planned Parenthood committee $10K

The following year (1941), the Laskers gave the Planned Parenthood Committee a total of $50,000 ($25,000 each from Mary and Albert), the largest donation the committee had received.

Interestingly, the Laskers established their foundation in 1942 — the same year that Sanger’s American Birth Control League changed its name to Planned Parenthood.

The Lasker Foundation website has even credited Albert Lasker as the one responsible for Planned Parenthood’s name:

Albert Lasker supported Sanger’s work as well, and he proposed a new name for her operation—one that better reflected its positive mission and that might ease its public acceptance. In 1942, his suggestion was accepted, and the organization became the Planned Parenthood Federation of America….

In 1943, another $50,000 was donated to Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) by Albert Lasker, according to the New York Times.

1943 Albert Lasker gives PPFA 50K

Mary Lasker continued her involvement with PPFA, and in 1945 was listed as a PPFA board member:

As late as 1962, Mary Lasker was listed as honorary vice-chairman of Planned Parenthood’s World Population Emergency Campaign.

MARGARET SANGER AWARDED BY LASKER 

In 1950, the Lasker Award given by Planned Parenthood – World Population was granted to Margaret Sanger, one of the first women to receive a Lasker award. According to an October New York Times report, the award read:

“To Margaret Sanger foremost in teaching families wise planning in birth control: Leader in influencing nations towards balanced population; living to see her beginnings in city slums grow into plans for a planet.”

Sanger was unable to receive the award in person because she was speaking to delegates at a luncheon of PPFA’s 13th annual meeting. The New York Times reported that at that PPFA meeting, their founder was advocating “a national Government-sponsored program of sterilization of the feeble-minded and victims of transmissible, congenital diseases.”

The “plan,” according to Sanger, was to “save innocent children from the cruelty of being born to such parents.”

Elaine Riddick was the victim of an identical eugenics project, funded by Clarence Gamble, and was forcibly sterilized in North Carolina in 1968. In the video below, Riddick stands next to her son, Tony, speaking as a witness to this flawed ideology:

Many believe that Sanger’s “Negro Project,” along with her eugenics advocacy, were partly to blame for the attitude many had about Black births, and the Lasker Foundation was unquestionably a part of promoting this horrible and harmful view.

Keep “Dreaming” only thing Planned Parenthood honors is agenda of Klan speaking founder

Planned Parenthood founder, Margaret Sanger once had a dream that who she considered to be unfit and feeble minded would be stopped from “breeding.”

Today, through abortion that dream is coming true.

The Planned Parenthood founder even met with the KLAN.

KlanBrochureSanger

Sanger gave this account of that KKK meeting 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.)

_____________________________________________

But, today, the organization she founded which continues to name their top award after Klan speaking Margaret Sanger is celebrating “Dream Keepers” for Black History Month.

Planned Parenthood Dreamers

From their release,
To celebrate Black History Month, Planned Parenthood is honoring 99 African American leaders — one for each year since Planned Parenthood was founded.

Isn’t that interesting – read it again: one for each year since Planned Parenthood was founded.

Well…Margaret Sanger would be proud

Margaret Sanger from her autobiography

In 1939, Sanger described the her Negro Project in a letter to fellow eugenicist, Clarence Gamble, “The minister’s work is also important and also he should be trained, perhaps by the Federation as to our ideals and the goal that we hope to reach. We do not want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”

PP 2-2-15-Dreamkeepers-Headers_doers

So, it is no surprise that also on Planned Parenthood’s list of Dream Keeper “Doers” is none other than abortionist Willie Parker:

Willie Parker PP Dreamer

Planned Parenthood is great at spin and using their founder’s finesse for marketing they have several media personalities in their philosophical pocket as well.

Planned Parenthood’s list also includes MSNBC host Melissa Harris- Perry in their Storyteller Dream Keeper section.

Her definition of when life begins gives cover to Planned Parenthood’s abortion agenda.

PP 2-2-15-Dreamkeepers-Headers_storytellers

Melissa Harris Perry

Harris-Perry who loves abortion once said, “When a pregnancy is wanted by the mother and father. ..it is easy to think of the bump as a baby. But not every pregnancy is a fairy tale. When does life begin? I submit the answer depends an awful lot on the feeling of the parents. A powerful feeling – but not science. The problem is that many of our policymakers want to base sweeping laws on those feelings.”

Sounds like the “DREAM KEEPER” Planned Parenthood is really honoring is their “DREAM KILLING” founder, Margaret Sanger!

NAACP leader receives award from eugenics founded Planned Parenthood

Last month NAACP board member, Rev. Doctor William Barber 11 , received the Planned Parenthood Care. No Matter What Award from Planned Parenthood Action.

In his March 27, 2014 acceptance speech, he called Planned Parenthood’s president, Cecile Richards, “My Sister.”

Rev. Barber told Planned Parenthood, “We want a country rooted in our deepest moral and constitutional values.”

Rev. Barber called pro-lifers “extremists” and laid out a list of “extremist agenda” that the conservatives supposedly want to deny to immigrants, the poor, gays and women.

Rev William Barber PP AwardScreenshot 1

Barber is an NAACP Board member and recently participated with Planned Pare4nthood in their “Moral Monday” protest.

Rev.-William-Barber-3

Rev. Barber rants on about “building a movement” where the left can protest, pray, and even go to jail together. He then says, “We must build a movement that exposes how those against Planned Parenthood are also more often against voting rights, and civil rights and labor rights and the poor and the access to health care.

Ryan_Scott_Bomberger_2 Ryan Bomberger of the Radiance Foundation responds, “Barber received the “Care. No Matter What.” Award from Planned Parenthood. Scare, no matter what. That’s Barber’s tactic. Bizarrely, in one public speech (start at 3:25) he details a strange historical timeline of egregious civil rights violations suggesting that the oppressors were Republicans, never once mentioning the known source of the violence, lynching and dehumanization—the Democrat Party. Today, that same party celebrates the violence and dehumanization of abortion by protecting it at all costs and forcing every taxpayer to fund it (via Medicaid and Obamacare). The Negro Project 2.0 is in full effect tin 2014. Barber is one of many prominent black public figures Planned Parenthood DOWN-THE-DRAIN-socialrelies on for double-speak, empty religiosity, and celebrity.

WilliamBarberNAACP

Rev. Barber goes on to say, “We must build a movement that deals with race, class, and attacks on women together not as separate issues.

What Barber fails to mention is the overt racism of Planned Parenthood as documented in the powerful film Maafa21. This film details how Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger gave Klan speeches and loaded her PP board with racists members of the American Eugenics Society. But- hey- why pay attention to facts when you have an agenda at stake?

Unfortunately-the very Rev. Barber ignores the “Social Injustice” of black genocide, the targeting of blacks for abortion, and the very genocide of black children in the womb which former NAACP members spoke out about.

Meet Margaret Sanger KlanParenthood

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 writing and Sanger published many of those in her publications.

If Barber is so concerned for the poor- why doesn’t he ask Planned Parenthood why they have not disavowed their founder. After all, Sanger called for those who were poor and what she considered to be “morons and immoral‘ , to be shipped to colonies where they would live in “Farms and Open Spaces” dedicated to brainwashing these so-called “inferior types” into having what Sanger called, “Better moral conduct”.

If Barber is that concerned about Racism, why does he lock arms with Planned Parenthood whose top award is called the Margaret Sanger Award, despite the fact that Sanger was an admitted Klan speaker.

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 writing and Sanger published many of those in her publications. Sanger called for parents to have a QUOTE: LICENSE TO BREED controlled by people who believed in her eugenic philosophy. She wanted all would be parents to go before her eugenic boards to request a “PERMIT TO BREED“.

Margaret Sanger once said, “More children from the fit, less from the unfit — that is the chief aim of birth control.” Birth Control Review, May 1919, p. 12

In Margaret Sanger’s, “Birth Control and Racial Betterment,” Feb 1919. Birth Control Review , Library of Congress Microfilm 131:0099B .
Sanger states, “Before eugenists and others who are laboring for racial betterment can succeed, they must first clear the way for Birth Control. Like the advocates of Birth Control, the eugenists, for instance, are seeking to assist the race toward the elimination of the unfit. Both are seeking a single end but they lay emphasis upon different methods.

Eugenists emphasize the mating of healthy couples for the conscious purpose of producing healthy children, the sterilization of the unfit to prevent their populating the world with their kind and they may, perhaps, agree with us that contraception is a necessary measure among the masses of the workers, where wages do not keep pace with the growth of the family and its necessities in the way of food, clothing, housing, medical attention, education and the like.

We who advocate Birth Control, on the other hand, lay all our emphasis upon stopping not only the reproduction of the unfit but upon stopping all reproduction when there is not economic means of providing proper care for those who are born in health.While I personally believe in the sterilization of the feeble-minded, the insane and syphilitic, I have not been able to discover that these measures are more than superficial deterrents when applied to the constantly growing stream of the unfitEugenics without Birth Control seems to us a house builded upon the sands. It is at the mercy of the rising stream of the unfit…

Sanger also called for those who were poor and what she considered to be “morons and immoral‘ , to be shipped to colonies where they would live in “Farms and Open Spaces” dedicated to brainwashing these so-called “inferior types” into having what Sanger called, “Better moral conduct”.

I consider that the world and almost our civilization for the next twenty-five years, is going to depend upon a simple, cheap, safe contraceptive to be used in poverty stricken slums, jungles, and among the most ignorant people. Even this will not be sufficient, because I believe that now, immediately, there should be national sterilization for certain dysgenic types of our population who are being encouraged to breed and would die out were the government not feeding them.
Planned Parenthood Founder, Margaret Sanger, 1950

In addition, Planned Parenthood’s 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.

In 1962, Vice President of the American Eugenics Society at the time, Dr. Alan Guttmacher wants abortion laws patterned after Sweden and other nations. One reason they list to allow abortions is :EUGENIC ! Also- Guttmacher at this point says he does NOT BELIEVE that abortion should be left up to the patient or their doctor, rather it should be up to “Special Board” to approve the abortion.
