Within months of taking office, President Barack Obama created the White House Council on Women and Girls. According to the administration, the council was created, “with the explicit mandate to ensure that every agency, department, and office in our federal government with the policies they draft, the programs they create, and the legislation they support takes into account the needs and aspirations of American women and girls.”

In 2010, Tina Tchen became Michele Obama’s chief of staff replacing Susan Sher. According to Life News, Tchen previously served as the vice president of the National Organization for Women, a prominent pro-abortion organization.

But Tchen was not the only member of the pro-abortion National Organization for Women ( NOW) that has joined the Obama administration.

Latifa Lyles is the Director of the Women’s Bureau at the Department of Labor. Lyles previously served as Vice President for Membership of the National Organization for Women (NOW).

In a report published by the administration they brag that barring the defunding of abortion giant Planned Parenthood was one of the many ways they carried out their mandate to help women. Under the section, Protect Women’s Access to Reproductive Health Services, the report states, “Women typically use contraception for 30 years of their lives, and the average cost of contraception is $30 to $50 per month. Under the Affordable Care Act’s preventive services coverage provision, insurance companies are now required to cover contraception at no extra cost. In addition, President Obama has consistently supported and defended Title X family planning clinics, proposing funding increases for these clinics in each year of his Administration. For many women, a family planning clinic is their entry point into the health care system and is their primary source of care. This is especially true for low-income women, women who are uninsured, and for Hispanic and African American women. These services are highly cost-effective, saving $4 for every $1 spent. And in April 2011, President Obama refused to allow language barring Title X funding to Planned Parenthood to be included in the federal budget.”

We already know the cozy relationship Valerie Jarrett has to Planned Parenthood (see here)

In 2009, executive director of the council, Tina Tchen, who was also the director of the White House Office of Public Engagement, welcomed over 400 Planned Parenthood staff and supporters in the opening session of the Planned Parenthood 2009 Organizing and Policy Summit.

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Changes are afoot at the White House.

Among the many moves afoot, Tina Tchen, who is responsible for working with outside groups, is preparing to move to the East Wing to serve as First Lady Michelle Obama’s chief of staff, according to two Democrats close to the White House.

Tchen, who is now director of the White House Office of Public Engagement, would replace the first lady’s longtime friend and confidant Susan Sher.

But according to this Planned Parenthood post: WHITE HOUSE’S TINA TCHEN ADDRESSES PLANNED PARENTHOOD CONFERENCE ON HEALTH CARE REFORM
Tina Tchen, then director of the White House Office of Public Engagement, welcomed Planned Parenthood staff and supporters from across the country in the opening session of the Planned Parenthood 2009 Organizing and Policy Summit.

Tchen provided participants with a status update on health care reform and reiterated the Obama administration’s commitment abortion.

Tchen told the group, “I can say this directly from the White House, the president reiterated to all of us in the senior staff that health care is the most important issue. It is the signature issue that he ran on; it is what he believes is one of the singularly most important reforms that need to be made that affects America, that affects our economy.

More than 400 Planned Parenthood representatives were in attendance.

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. A dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered.” (Margaret Sanger: An Autobiography, P.366)
