Despite its history of targeting the black community for abortion, Planned Parenthood has declared that it is celebrating Black History Month by recognizing “past, present, and future” leaders.
According to Planned Parenthood’s website, the abortion business is committed to “honor these Dream Keepers of the past, present, and future, who continue to stand strong in their commitment to better health care and economic outcomes for the black community.” Yet this attempt to honor the black community remains unconvincing in light of Planned Parenthood’s consistent behavior toward black women and their unborn children.
Planned Parenthood foundress Margret Sanger is well-known for her disdain for African Americans. She referred to them as “weeds” and plotted to eradicate them in her writing.
Sanger wrote of her plan to wipe out the whole population in her book Women, Morality, and Birth Control, “We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population…” Such blatant discrimination is the principle Planned Parenthood was founded on.
This targeting continues even today, as Planned Parenthood uses black women to increase its profits.
As LifeNews previously reported, one study found that 79 percent of Planned Parenthood abortion clinics are placed in low-income minority neighborhoods. The reason for this? Research shows that black women are nearly three-times as likely to have an abortion as Caucasian women. In fact, in New York City, more black babies were aborted in 2013 than were born, according to the city department of health. Planned Parenthood is purposefully making abortion accessible to African Americans, simply because this increase in abortion helps its business.
Planned Parenthood’s actions toward the black community casts a shadow on its sudden attempt to honor African American leaders. Historically Planned Parenthood used black women and targeted their children, and according to their strategic placement of abortion clinics, this is what they continue to do.
Last year, Planned Parenthood held a press conference to brag about the care they offer the African American community in the United States. The abortion giant said they wanted to highlight the “vital reproductive and sexual health care services” they provide minority women.
However, their “vital” work is much more than providing birth control and manual breast exams, which is what the mainstream media would like you to believe; it is targeting African American unborn babies for abortions to meet their quotas and bring in more revenue.
The Washington Examiner reports that statistics prove the abortion industry receives significant income from African American women since they tend to have more abortions than Caucasian women. They explained, “Thirty out of every 1,000 black women obtained an abortion in 2011, which is the most recent data available. That rate is nearly triple that of white women and double that of Hispanic women. While about 13 percent of Americans are black, more than one-third of all abortions are administered to black women.”
Unfortunately, the data cited above is accurate and other statistics show that 79% of Planned Parenthood abortion facilities are strategically placed in low-income minority neighborhoods. This information confirms a pattern that has been going on for years: the abortion industry, specifically Planned Parenthood, targets minority women.
Bradley Mattes, the executive director of Life Issues Institute, commented on that data and said, ”These census results clearly show that Planned Parenthood continues to pursue the eugenics philosophy of its founder, Margaret Sanger, who believed that Blacks and the poor were “unfit” to reproduce. She dedicated her life to controlling the population of these “undesirables” by advancing birth control and sterilization in their neighborhoods.”
He added, “Later, the legalization of abortion gave Planned Parenthood an effective and lucrative means for furthering this eugenics agenda. Although Planned Parenthood denies it, these maps show conclusively that they continue to target minorities for abortion.”
