Planned Parenthood Racism

The Family Research Council links to a video and transcript of an actor posing as a prospective donor to Planned Parenthood.

Lila Rose, a pro-life student and reporter at UCLA, launched an undercover investigation aimed at exposing the racism of the nation's largest abortion merchant. With the help of an actor, she contacted Planned Parenthood clinics in seven states, inquiring if they would be willing to accept a donation earmarked for the abortion of black babies. The results were jaw-dropping.
Rose was appalled to discover that every last clinic agreed. Not one employee objected or questioned the request, even when the actor insisted that the purpose was to "lower the number of black people" in America. When the caller phoned an Ohio branch, he was told that Planned Parenthood "will accept the money for whatever reason." ...

Actor: ...I really faced trouble with affirmative action, and I don't want my kids to be disadvantaged against black kids.
Planned Parenthood: Yes, absolutely.
Actor: And we don't, you know, we just think the less black kids out there the better.
Planned Parenthood: (Laughs) Understandable, understandable... This is the first time I've had a donor call and make this kind of request, so I'm excited and want to make sure I don't leave anything out.

The FRC article goes on to mention the unsavory past of Planned Parenthood founder and liberal icon Margaret Sanger, a past which is typically whitewashed.
The best book on Margaret Sanger, in my opinion, is called Margaret Sanger's Eugenic Legacyby Angela Franks. This book shows beyond any shadow of a doubt that eugenics was part of Sanger's ideology from the very beginning. Implied in Mrs. Franks book is her own vision of feminism as something that supports motherhood, not sterility. Well worth reading.

The author, Angela Franks, also has a website with quite a bit of information about Margaret Sanger available. Viewers can see it at www.angelafranks.com
