Dallas journalist to be awarded by Planned Parenthood inspired by racist Margaret Sanger

A Dallas journalist is scheduled to receive an award from Planned Parenthood which is founded by a racist.

Sanger KKK

You cannot make this stuff up. In light of all the antics about race – we still have an organization whose founder was a racist being allowed by the media to promote her views.

Planned Parenthood was founded by a racist by the name of Margaret Sanger. She, admitted to giving Klan speeches in her autobiography, was a member of the racist American Eugenics Society, pushed for forced sterilization of what she deemed “unfit” or “feeblemeinded”, wanted the state to be allowed to issue a license to have children only to those eugenics groups chose as worthy, and yet Planned Parenthood never seems to come under the same scrutiny on race as say, a college fraternity member.

Find out more about Margaret Sanger and what she believed in the film Maafa21.

Instead, the media condones Planned Parenthood saying nothing when the director of the Texas abortion giant called Planned Parenthood a Texas value.

Case in point, as Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas gets ready to celebrate 80 years in the Lone Star state, they again praise their founder (the racist) posting this on their website.

    Inspired by Margaret Sanger—an American birth control activist, sex educator, and nurse who opened the first birth control clinic in the United States in Brooklyn, New York, in 1916—volunteers and community leaders in Dallas, Austin, Fort Worth, and Waco came together to address the birth control needs of women in their communities. Maternal health centers in each city eventually became Planned Parenthood, and today stand together as one of the largest Planned Parenthood affiliates in the US: Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas.

    The first group that came together was in Dallas in the early 1930s. Community leaders Katherine Ripley and Gertrude Shelburne worked with Sanger to import and distribute contraceptives and educational materials in shirt boxes from the Ripley Shirt Company. They saw a need to help women struggling to plan and space their pregnancies safely, and stood on the right side of history to create access to much-needed birth control and information.

In this image you can see the racist Margaret Sanger clearly celebrated:

According to the Dallas Morning News, which fails to point to their racist founder, Planned Parenthood will celebrate March 26 at the Hilton Anatole.

Planned Parenthood media join ranks Dallas 2015

Slate writer, Dahlia Lithwick, will Keynote the event. Her work has appeared in The New York Times, Harper’s, The New Yorker, The Washington Post, and Commentary.

And here is the catch, Dallas Morning News columnist Steve Blow will be honored with the 2015 Katherine Ripley Award for Media at the Planned Parenthood gala.

So, when you hear the media cry out about race, as in the recent Starbucks Race Together theme or Ferguson’s Black Lives Matter, remember that these are the same people who will join ranks with Planned Parenthood and never – and I mean never denounce Margaret Sanger and her racist foundings.

In addition a Texas group recently published summaries of actual criminal cases showing Planned Parenthood covering for child sexual predators by not reporting the rape or abuse of children. What happened to members of the media caring about the sexual abuse of little girls? Read that report here.

Why is anyone that works for a place which kills unborn children serving on the board of a Christian school?

Bonnie Mills PPGT picBonnie Mills, who currently serves on the board of Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas was once a Trustee of an Episcopal School in Austin Texas.

Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas clearly offers abortions at their many locations across the state:

Mills is the President and a Trustee of the Mills Dennis Family Foundation in Austin, TX. She is also on the advisory boards of A Legacy of Giving and Emancipet. Her past board affiliations include Lifeworks, Austin Habitat for Humanity, the ZACH Theatre, Leadership Austin, People’s Community Clinic, Austin Musical Theatre, Fund for Childcare Excellence, and SafePlace.

According to the website I Live Here Give, she also served on the board of St. Andrew’s Episcopal School in Austin, TX.

This 2010 990 as well as this 2011 990 shows Bonnie Mills as a Trustee.

However, the current list of Trustees on the school’s website does not include Mills ( see here)

Regardless of whether Bonnie Mills is currently on the board of the school or not, the fact that she was on their board at the same time that she served on the board of an abortion clinic chain is very troubling.

PP FT WORTH 20131kQsdF.St.58

Planned Parenthood’s Ft Worth, Texas, event, “Cocktails with a Cause” instead of cocktails without a cause I guess, will help them do abortions plain and simple.

FT Worth PP Cocktails with a cause

In their usual stealth way, the abortion giant is selling this fundraiser as a way to, “help Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas to continue to provide essential healthcare and health education services to women, men, and teens in North and Central Texas.”

The event will be held November 6, 2014, at Texas Pacific Station described on their website as, “Located at 221 W. LancasterFort Worth, the Texas & Pacific Station is part of the historic Texas & Pacific Railway Terminal built in 1931 and is Fort Worth’s largest and most extravagant example of 1920s Zigzag Moderne architecture. The main and women’s waiting rooms of this landmark building, built in 1931, were beautifully restored in 1999 and are available for party/wedding Ave. in downtown /event rental today.”

By the looks of things – these must be some pretty pricy cocktails:

Diamond Sponsor: $5,000, Platinum Sponsor: $2,500, Gold Sponsor: $1,000, Silver Sponsor: $500, Bronze Sponsor: $250

Perhaps I could suggest a cocktail the child killing chain could server: Bloody Mary !

With 1/2 billion in tax dollars given to Planned Parenthood each year and their posh fundraisers it is no surprise that Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas pays their staff so well. An example is their latest 990 report from the year 2012:

I wonder if Abortion Barbie, Wendy Davis will make an appearance. After all, she never misses an opportunity to promote Planned Parenthood. Here she is at their February fundraiser:

On the heels of the flack an ice creak parlor in Oregon received when they created an ice cream flavor for abortion giant Planned Parenthood – comes another story.

Good Times Ice cream PP 43_n

Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas is holding a special event August 2nd featuring ThunderCloud Subs and Good Times Ice Cream

On the events page, Planned Parenthood writes:

Good Times Ice Cream PP

What better way to spend a Saturday than snacking on free sandwiches and ice cream on the East Side… and learning about short- and long-term contraception (including IUDs and implants), HIV testing, and screening and treatment for sexually transmitted infections??? …..

(Oh and the sandwiches and ice cream are free for EVERYONE. We’ll have healthy stuff from ThunderCloud Subs all day and frozen goodies from the Good Times Ice Cream Austin truck from 12-2pm. Come for the treats, stay for the fascinating healthcare information. You might even walk out with some long-acting reversible contraception. Who knows!)

Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas clearly kills unborn children with abortion! Why would anyone want to be associated with them?

Former GOP Senator called “brave” by abortion giant Planned Parenthood

Former Republican Senator Olympia Snowe, was the keynote speaker at Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas’ annual awards luncheon Monday.

According to D Magazine, Selecting Snowe to headline was strategic: 20 Planned Parenthood clinics in Texas have shuttered because of decisions approved by the Texas Legislature, which is predominately Republican.

PP Greater Tx Olympia Snowe

Snowe was preceded onstage Monday by said Ken Lambrecht, the president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas and Cecile Richards, president of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America. She called Snowe one of the “bravest and fiercest defenders of women in American history.”

The Greater Texas chapter of Planned Parenthood raised $19.5 million last year claiming that half came from Republicans while the other half came from Democrats.

According to Planned Parenthood 2012-2013 annual report Planned Parenthood performed 327,166 abortions nationwide.

The report shows that the abortion giant received $540.6 million dollars in federal tax monies last year alone.

Historically elite Republicans have funded and supported Planned Parenthood for very eugenic reasons.

Case in point, former Republican Prez, Richard Nixon:

Nixon was enthusiastic about a federal family planning initiative for low-income women that he declared it a “national goal” in 1969 before signing Title X into law.
_____________________________________________

It is my view that no American woman should be denied access to family planning assistance because of her economic condition. I believe, therefore that we should establish as a national goal the provision of adequate family planning services within the next five years to all those who want them but cannot afford them. This we have the capacity to do.
~President Richard Nixon, 1969

Nixon stressed that under “no circumstances” would birth control activities be allowed to “infringe upon the religious or personal wishes and freedom of any individual.”

Nixon then recommended a “Commission on Population Growth and the American Future” . The bill authorizing this new initiative had been passed with overwhelming support from Congressional Democrats and was chaired by John Rockefeller. The Executive Director of the project was to be Dr. Charles F. Westoff who was also a member of both the American Eugenics Society and Planned Parenthood’s National Advisory Council.

According to the documentary film Maafa21, Nixon would label birth control a national priority and sign legislation to make it available as a service of the U.S. government. Then in March of 1972, the Commission on Population Growth and the American Future which Nixon had created three years earlier began calling for the nationwide legalization of abortion.


Previously released Nixon tapes show Nixon wanted abortion for Racist reasons ( From the documentary on Black Genocide: Maafa21.
)

Although the quality of the recordings are poor, Nixon and an aide held a conversation recorded on January 23, 1973, discussing that day’s Supreme Court’s decisions in Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton.

NIXON Tape #697-29

Nixon Black Negro Bastards

Nixon: “A majority of people in Colorado voted for abortion, I think a majority of people in Michigan are for abortion, I think in both cases, well, certainly in Michigan they will vote for it because they think that what’s going to be aborted generally are the little black bastards.”

NIXON TAPE 700-10

Nixon: ” … as I told you and we talked about it earlier, that a hell of a lot of people want to control all the Negro bastards.”

Unidentified Staff: “Yeah

Nixon: “Isn’t that really true?

NixonPopControl

Nixon: “You know what we are talking about – Population Control?”

Unidentified Staff: “Sure

Nixon Our Class Control Pop

Nixon: “We’re talking really – and what John Rockefeller really realizes – look, the people in what we call the “our class” control their populations. Sometimes they’ll have a family of six, or seven, or eight, or nine, but it’s an exception.”

Unidentified Staff: Sure.

Nixon: “People who don’t control their families are people in- the people who shouldn’t have kids.”

President Nixon formed the Population Commission which was headed by eugenics members.

george-h-w-bushPresident George H.W. Bush earned the nickname “Rubbers” as a congressman for his passion for increasing access to contraception.

“We need to make population and
family planning household words.
We need to take sensationalism out
of this topic so that it can no longer
be used by militants who have no
real knowledge of the voluntary
nature of the program but, rather
are using it as a political
steppingstone. If family planning is
anything, it is a public health matter.”
~ Congressman George H.W. Bush, 1969

Bush Senior created the National Center for Population and Family Planning in the Department of Health Education and Welfare also know as HEW. “Population Control and Family Planning is to important to giggle about now“, said Bush Sr. in 1969. Bush Sr’s interest in family planning started with his activity with Planned Parenthood in Houston.

T_RooseveltTHEODORE ROOSEVELT:


A 1913 letter written by Theodore Roosevelt to American Eugenics Society founder, Charles Davenport, Roosevelt writes, “society has no business to permit degenerates to reproduce their kind. ..Some day we will realize that the prime duty the inescapable duty of the good citizen of the right type is to leave his or her blood behind him in the world; and that we have no business to permit the perpetuation of citizens of the wrong type.”

Dwight Eisenhower

In 1965, former Republican President, Dwight Eisenhower, complained that the United States was spending money to slow the population growth of responsible families while at the same time providing financial incentives for ignorant, feebleminded and lazy people to have more babies. He said that history would rightly condemn the United States if we didn’t link welfare to family-planning.

At that time, Eisenhower was the co-chairman of a Planned Parenthood fund-raising campaign along with former Democratic President, Harry S. Truman.

Back to Nixon:

Here Nixon tells Chuck Colson abortion is needed in some cases: like when you have a “Black and a White”

I know that there are times when abortions are necessary. I know that,” Nixon tells an aide, then adding, “When you have a black and a white.”

The aide interrupts, “or for rape,” to which Nixon quickly responds, “or rape.”

It is no surprise that Planned Parenthood ( which gets over $1 MILLION DOLLARS a day in federal tax money) wants Republicans to promote their racist and eugenics Abortion and Family Planning ideas, after all they were founded by a racist Klan speaker by the name of Margaret Sanger:

Planned Parenthood received $349.6 million in tax dollars in the fiscal year ending on June 30, 2008, and $363.2 MILLION Dollars on Government Grants ( Tax Dollars) in 2009– that is ONE MILLION DOLLARS PER DAY of taxpayer money !!!

Cecile Richards; Planned Parenthood President

Planned Parenthood then took those hard earned dollars away from poor and middle class hard working people and it paid its president, Cecile Richards, $385,163, plus another $11,876 in benefits and deferred compensation. ( View 2008 990 here )

The $385,163 in pay Planned Parenthood President Richards received in the organization’s fiscal year ending June 30, 2008 was recorded in the group’s publicly available Internal Revenue Service Form 990 filed for that year.

Richards also received $346,285 in total compensation from Planned Parenthood and $38,476 in total compensation from related groups in the organization’s fiscal year that ended on June 30, 2009, according to the organization’s Form 990 for that year. In a 2010 PPFA 990, Cecile Richards reported earning $319,245 from PPFA and $35,471 from related PP organizations

What you may not know is how much money , in a time of economic depression, Cecile Richards and her crew at Planned Parenthood are making, paid for by hard working American Tax Payers like me and you. Here
