Planned Parenthood: Living out the Racist Vision of Margaret Sanger

Great article from the California Catholic Daily:

And be sure to see this video documenting the racism of Planned Parenthood

“They live out her racist vision”

Covert investigation by UCLA students finds Planned Parenthood still wedded to founder’s bigoted views

A 19 year-old sophomore at UCLA continues to shake up pro-abortion forces with her investigative reporting, most recently by revealing Planned Parenthood’s indifference to racism when it benefits them.

Lila Rose, editor of The Advocate, a student magazine devoted to “educating the UCLA community about the right to life for all human beings,” had an actor posing as a prospective donor call Planned Parenthood in five states, offering to give money to “lower the number of blacks in America” and other racially motivated reasons. Not one Planned Parenthood employee rejected the money, nor did any of them object to the racist rhetoric of the caller.

Below is an exchange taken from one of the calls, during which the fake donor spoke with Autumn Kersey, director of development for Planned Parenthood of Idaho:

Donor: The abortion -- I can give money specifically for a black baby, that would be the purpose?

PP Rep: Absolutely. If you wanted to designate that your gift be used to help an African-American woman in need, then we would certainly make sure that the gift was earmarked for that purpose.

Donor: Great, because I really faced trouble with affirmative action, and I don’t want my kids to be disadvantaged against black kids. I just had a baby; I want to put it in his name. PP Rep: Yes, absolutely.

Donor: And we don’t, you know we just think, the less black kids out there the better.

PP Rep: Understandable, understandable.

Donor: Right. I want to protect my son, so he can get into college.

PP Rep: All right. Excuse my hesitation, this is the first time I’ve had a donor call and make this kind of request, so I’m excited, and want to make sure I don’t leave anything out.

Rose says she got the idea for the calls by reading about Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger. “She was a racist and eugenicist,” said Rose. “She literally wanted to use sterilization and abortion as a tool to wipe out minority populations, especially the black community. Yet today, they (Planned Parenthood) honor their founder, this racist, with the Margaret Sanger Award that they give out.” Rose continued, “At the same time, they live out her racist vision on a practical level by targeting the African-American and minority communities. Seventy-nine percent of their clinics are in minority neighborhoods. They offer special incentive programs for black women and other minorities to get free abortions, under the misnomer of ‘Women in Need’ and ‘Justice’ funds. In fact, in our investigation, employees told us about special funds that were set up for minority women.

“The African-American community is impacted by this more than any other group because the statistics show that 13 percent of women are African-American, but they get more than 36 percent of all abortions. An African-American baby conceived in this country is just about as likely to be aborted as it is to be born.”

So far, The Advocate has released transcripts and recordings from just two of the states, Idaho and Ohio. The other three states will be released soon.

This is not the first time Rose has conducted undercover work to expose Planned Parenthood’s dark agenda. Last year, posing as an underage pregnant girl with an adult boyfriend, she secretly videotaped Planned Parenthood employees in Los Angeles telling a girl they believed to be 15 years old to "figure out a birth-date that works" to prevent statutory rape charges against her supposed 23-year-old boyfriend.

In addition to publishing a story about it in The Advocate, Rose posted the videos on YouTube. On May 14, 2007, Planned Parenthood sent Rose a cease and desist letter by registered mail demanding that she stop the calls, relinquish all recordings and transcripts and remove them from the Internet. Rose has not complied.

after reading Ellen Chesler's book which i have reviewed at my blog i came to the same conclusion about state killing in all its forms that is not to say that I am not pro-choice or that i have religious views on the subject. However the most important issue for me is that planned parenthood does target minority groups. I do believe however that birth control, as in birth prevention is the key.

peace love and empathy
