According to CNS News, Planned Parenthood has posted on its website a statement in support of pro-abortion President Barack Obama’s plan to protect millions of illegal aliens from deportation, stating that “everyone in this country should have access to health care, regardless of income, geography, or citizenship status.”
Sounds nice, doesn’t it? However, by health care what they really mean is abortion. On November 21st, the president and CEO of the abortion empire, Cecile Richards said, “We commend President Obama for extending much needed and long overdue relief to millions of women and families currently living in fear of deportation due to our nation’s broken immigration system. This is a bold step forward that will help strengthen communities, our country and create a path to the American dream.
She continued, “At Planned Parenthood we see the difference that access to affordable health care makes for women and families every day and we’re proud to stand alongside our partners who have fought so hard for this victory. This is no doubt a joyous day for families across the country who have hoped and prayed for relief, as well as those visionary leaders and activists who have dedicated their lives to achieving what we are seeing today.”
Although Planned Parenthood consistently claims that they defend the rights of the marginalized, that couldn’t be further from the truth. As LifeNews previously reported, a new analysis from the Center for Disease Control reveals that out of the ten states where the most abortions occurred in 2011, 60.48% of the babies killed were African American and Hispanic.

According to the Census Bureau, Blacks and Hispanics comprise only 13.2% and 17.1% of the population respectively; however they get 37.3% and 22% of all abortions. Additionally, while it definitely isn’t news that Planned Parenthood targets minority groups, the new statistics confirm a pattern that has been going on for years.
In the media, Planned Parenthood is praised for being “diverse”, but 79% of all their abortion facilities are located near minority neighborhoods. And guess what— according to the Department of Homeland Security, 59% of illegal immigrants currently living in the United States are from Mexico, meaning they are most likely Hispanic. Additionally, reports show that many other illegal immigrants are from Guatemala and Honduras, which are prominently Hispanic countries.
Taking all that information into consideration, it’s fair to say that Planned Parenthood hopes to reap additional profit by doing abortions on Hispanic women who are illegal immigrants. Tragically, Planned Parenthood’s crusade against minorities started decades ago, when their founder, Margaret Sanger, described African-Americans, and immigrants as “human weeds,” “reckless breeders,” and “spawning… human beings who never should have been born” in her 1922 book, “Pivot of Civilization.” Furthermore, Sanger further expressed that she believed that the genetic makeup of the poor and minorities was inferior to the rest of the human population.
