Kathleen McKinley at Right Wing News reminds us of something that the Left wants us to forget: that Planned Parenthood, the brainchild of racist and eugenicist Margaret Sanger, had its origins in a project intended to abort minority babies and reduce minority populations.
What is The Negro Project? It was a project created by Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger in the 1940s. She wanted to build birth control clinics in black neighborhoods. Abortion was still considered the horror that it is. It wasn’t considered then. Her goal was to control the “breeding” of blacks.
Margaret Sanger’s periodical, Birth Control Review, in 1932:
“The mass of ignorant Negroes still breed carelessly and disastrously, so that the increase among Negroes, even more than the increase among whites, is from that part of the population least intelligent and fit, and least able to rear their children properly.”
Sanger would be proud of how her “Negro Project” lives on.
Miller reports on how Planned Parenthood is now involved in a media blitz in African American media to show how “important” Planned Parenthood is to the community. Read the entire article. He explains how the NAACP and leaders like Jesse Jackson sold out to the Democratic party, and now ignore the genocide of black babies.
Sanger believed that blacks were inferior. She believed they should not breed. That way, the inferior could die out.
Now, do I believe that people who run and work for Planned Parenthood believe that today? No. I think they tell themselves that it’s best for everyone if certain people, who can’t afford a child, or too young to raise a child, or not educated enough to raise a child, should be able to abort that child. I think they tell themselves that the only reason that abortion clinics can be found near minority neighborhoods is because that is where they are needed. Not because of color, but because of need.
That’s what they tell themselves.
But the truth is that, as Miller pointed out, black women account for over a third of all abortions, even though they are less than 13 percent of the population (Miller says 13%, but that includes black males). That is the result.
And this is a project that the Left wants to fund with taxpayer dollars. While they decry the Tea Party as racist.
