Hillary Clinton, speaking in a Baptist church in Columbia, South Carolina on Tuesday, February 23, 2016, courted black voters as she sympathized with five black mothers whose children had died by gun violence.  Does Clinton really think that too many blacks have died violently?  How then is it that in receiving the Margaret Sanger award at the 2009 Planned Parenthood Honors Gala in Houston, Clinton said, “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.”?

Margaret Sanger (1879-1966), the founder of Planned Parenthood, was a racist eugenicist. She worked closely with the theorists who put together Nazi Germany’s “race purification” program and she sought the elimination of races whom she considered to be inferior.  Sanger once wrote: “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.”

Now consider that the organization that Margaret Sanger founded, Planned Parenthood, is the largest provider of abortions in the United States and that 79% of its clinics are in minority neighborhoods.  Statistics from the Center for Disease Control indicate that in 2010 alone more than 81% of the abortions done in New York City were done on black or Hispanic women.  Six out of ten black babies are currently being aborted in New York City. In 2014 blacks were estimated to account for 13.2% of the total U.S. population of 318,857,056 which would be 42,089,131. Since the notorious 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion it is estimated that 15,500,000 black babies have died by abortion.  Isn’t it odd that Hillary Clinton who said of young blacks dying by violence, “That’s too many deaths.  Too many young lives cut short,” does not consider it contradictory to ardently support Sanger’s brainchild which has contributed to the equivalent of more than 36.8% of the current black population in the United States being slain in the womb?
