Live Action News’s Cassy Fiano noticed something interesting about a timeline Planned Parenthood included in its annual report.
For the record, while the amount of taxpayers’ money Planned Parenthood received is up, non-abortion related services like cancer screenings are down.
Along the timeline in 1930, Planned Parenthood noted that founder Margaret Sanger opened a clinic in Harlem in “response to black women being denied access to health and social services…”
But the abortion mill doesn’t mention the infamous eugenics “Negro Project” in the timeline.
That’s right: Planned Parenthood’s history is rooted in eugenics, starting out with its founder, Margaret Sanger. Partnering with black religious leaders, for example, was part of Sanger’s strategy for her “Negro project.” In a letter to Dr. Clarence Gamble, Sanger laid out her vision for the project, which was a collaboration between the American Birth Control League and Sanger’s Birth Control Clinical Research Bureau.
It’s because of Sanger’s background in eugenics and Planned Parenthood’s apparent targeting of minority women that a group of black pastors asked the Smithsonian to remove a bust of Sanger from the National Portrait Gallery. The museum refused the request and justified Sanger’s presence in the “Struggle for Justice” exhibit.
Star Parker, founder and president of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education, asked the Congressional Black Caucus to lead the way in demanding the bust’s removal.
