In the 2012-2013 fiscal year Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the United States, reported that it had received $540.6 million dollars in taxpayer funded government grants.
Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, worked closely with the scientists who devised Hitler’s “race purification” program. She commissioned Dr. Ernst Rudin, director of the Nazi Medical Experimentation Program, to write for the magazine she was publishing, The Birth Control Review. In her book, Women and the New Race, Sanger wrote that “the most merciful thing a large family can do to one of its infant members is to kill it.” In her newspaper, The Woman Rebel, Sanger wrote, “I look forward to seeing humanity free someday from the tyranny of Christianity no less than Capitalism.” Sanger, like Hitler, believed in eliminating races whom she considered to be inferior. In 1939 Sanger devised the “Negro Project” whereby she enlisted black ministers to propagandize for birth control. She said, “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.” (Grand Illusions; The Legacy of Planned Parenthood by George Grant)
Since January 22, 1973 when the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision legalized abortion in the United States, more than 16,000,000 African American babies have been killed by abortion (about 25% of the African American population). Although African Americans comprise only 11% of the national population, more than 43% of all abortions done in the United States are done on African American women. (www.priestsforlife.org)
In 2010, Dr. Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. wrote, “The most obvious practitioner of racism in the United States today is Planned Parenthood, an organization founded by the eugenicist Margaret Sanger and recently documented as ready to accept money to eliminate black babies. The most positive step we can take to fight racism is to end the hundreds of millions of dollars in taxpayer subsidies given to an organization that fulfills the dreams of the Ku Klux Klan – a group Planned Parenthood’s founder once addressed.” (www.priestsforlife.org)
Perhaps of more concern than her secret e-mails as Secretary of State is Hillary Rodham Clinton’s remarks upon receiving Planned Parenthood’s “prestigious” 2009 Margaret Sanger award: “I admire Margaret Sanger enormously, her courage, her tenacity, her vision. I am really in awe of her; there are a lot of lessons we can learn from her life.” (www.priestsforlife.org)
