Students Sting Planned Parenthood

By Susan Brinkmann, OCDS Staff Writer (Feb. 29, 2008) According to the editors of a UCLA student magazine, the racist policies of Planned Parenthood founder, Margaret Sanger, continue to exist in the organization today. After conducting a multi-state probe, the students found not a single clinic willing to turn away a donation earmarked for “reducing the number of blacks.” The sting was conducted by editors of The Advocate and consisted of an actor who posed as a donor and called Planned Parenthood clinics to ask if he could donate money for the specific purpose of aborting black Americans. In a transcript released on Tuesday, the donor told an administrative assistant at an Ohio Planned Parenthood clinic: “There are definitely too many Black people in Ohio, so I am just trying to do my part. . . . Blacks especially need abortions, so that’s what I’m trying to do.” The administrative assistant, Lisa Hutton, replied, “For whatever reason, we’ll accept the money.” In a similar call made to a clinic in Idaho, the donor said “. . . (T)he less black kids out there the better,” to which the Planned Parenthood representative, Autumn Kersey, replied, “Understandable, understandable.” Not a single Planned Parenthood employee declined the tainted money, writes Lila Rose of The Advocate. “In the first day of calling seven clinics, not a single Planned Parenthood representative expressed outrage or concern at the racism behind donations specifically ‘to reduce the number of blacks.’ In fact, some even went so far as agreeing with the anti-black agenda.” The probe also uncovered the fact that racism is an official policy of Planned Parenthood. Apparently, many clinics have programs called “women in need” or justice” funds which are set up specifically to receive money designated for minority abortions, Rose writes. Even more evidence can be found in the fact that of Planned Parenthood’s 800-plus U.S. clinics, 79 percent are located in minority neighborhoods where an estimated 1400 black babies die by abortion daily in the U.S. Even though they comprise less than 13 percent of the population, blacks receive 35 percent of all abortions in the U.S. “Planned Parenthood is (intentionally or not) exterminating the black community,” Rose writes. By her own admission, this is precisely what Margaret Sanger intended. She was an outspoken advocate of the early 20th century eugenics movement, which hoped to purify the bloodlines and improve the human race by encouraging the “fit” to reproduce and the “unfit” to restrict their reproduction. They sought to contain “inferior” races through sterilization, birth control and abortion. Sanger took direct aim at the black population, creating the “Negro Project” in 1939, the purpose of which was to restrict the black population, but to do so under the pretense of “better health” and “family planning.” By presenting her program as a way to improve their economic condition by having fewer children, Sanger was even able to convince black leaders to promote birth control. However, her real intentions were made quite clear in a 1939 letter to Dr. Clarence Gamble. “We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population,” she wrote, “and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”  Even though benevolence toward the black population was never her intention, the politically correct lobby of today continues to spin this ugly program into a kind of “sweet liberal compassion for the downtrodden,” writes Paolo Tess of The Advocate. “. . . (G)iven Planned Parenthood’s history, its innocence must be questioned in the face of the demographic evidence,” he writes. The students are calling on the administration of UCLA to cut off all ties with Planned Parenthood, as they would with any organization which espouses a racist agenda. UCLA Administrators have thus far refused to comment. The sting has also sparked renewed calls for the government to defund Planned Parenthood, which received more than $300 million in taxpayer funding last year. Many agree with the students who say that giving taxpayer money to an organization that targets specific races is totally unacceptable. © All Rights Reserved, Living His Life Abundantly/Women of Grace.
