Planned Parenthood on the runJOSEPH FARAH
It's about time people became aware that Planned Parenthood is not what it pretends to be. Thanks to some hard work by dedicated people, this detestable organization is finally on the run.
It's about time people became aware that Planned Parenthood is not what it pretends to be.
Thanks to some hard work by dedicated people, this detestable organization is finally on the run.
There were two important developments in this battle this month:
It's about time this ugly organization got its comeuppance. From the very start, its evil motivations were cloaked in phony humanitarian ideals.
The group was founded by Margaret Sanger, still portrayed as a feminist heroine by Planned Parenthood activists today.
But Sanger was, first and foremost, a eugenicist one who believed in the inferiority of non-white races. In 1939, she proposed the infamous "Negro Project," a plan developed at the behest of public-health officials in southern states, where she writes, "the most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We do not want 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."
Sanger also attempted to set up birth-control clinics in poor New York City neighborhoods to target "Blacks, Hispanics, Slavs, Amerinds, Fundamentalists, Jews and Catholics."
Sanger was closely tied to Ernst Rudin, who served as Hitler's director of genetic sterilization. An April 1933 article by Rudin entitled "Eugenic Sterilization: An Urgent Need" for Sanger's monthly magazine, The Birth Control Review, detailed the establishment of the Nazi Society for Racial Hygiene and advocated its replication in the United States. A subsequent article by Leon Whitney published the following June by Sanger, entitled "Selective Sterilization," praises and defends the Third Reich's pre-holocaust "race purification" program.
After the war had concluded and Nazi atrocities came to light, Sanger quickly changed the name of her organization from the Birth Control League to Planned Parenthood to distance herself from her earlier Nazi associations.
But that's the history and there's no changing it, no disguising it. That was the motivation behind the launch of Planned Parenthood. And its anti-parent, "if-it-feels-good-do-it" philosophy is just a new form of an old, evil idea.
Planned Parenthood today is the No. 1 provider of abortions in America. It is the No. 1 lobbying organization behind unrestricted abortion. And abortion is believe it or not the No. 1 cause of death among black Americans today. Some 13 million black babies have been aborted in the post-Roe vs. Wade era.
Coincidence? Or the legacy Margaret Sanger sought?
But the word is getting around. People are beginning to see the truth about Planned Parenthood. It's about time these sick, twisted perverts were exposed.
