The Planned Parenthood Federation of America is the largest abortion business in the country. They and their affiliates perform nearly 40% of the abortions performed in the United States each year. They also kill thousands more unborn children each year through the sale and distribution of dangerous abortifacient drugs which they deceptively market as “emergency contraception.” Through it’s various lobbying and electioneering activities, Planned Parenthood and its allies are in large part responsible for the current corruption of public education and a great deal of the pro-death public policy implemented since 1900.
Planned Parenthood was founded in 1916 as the American Birth Control League by Margaret Sanger, a radical bohemian and nurse, in Brooklyn, New York. Sanger was an atheist, a Social Darwinist, a serial adulterer, a Demorol addict and a fanatical eugenicist. She embraced a set of theories which held that poverty and criminality could be eliminated if only society bred its undesirable strains out of existence. She often referred to America’s “negro problem” and called the mentally handicapped “a dead weight of human waste.” Sanger even addressed the women’s branch of the Ku Klux Klan and received many invitations from similar organizations after her enthusiastically received speech.
Sanger was hardly unique in her views. Other early leaders of the Birth Control League are known to have made comment of the “menace” posed by the “black” and “yellow” hoards “invading” the American coastal cities. Many early leaders of Sanger’s movement were closely involved with the campaigns of large-scale government-enforced mandatory sterilization partly orchestrated by Harry Laughlin, Charles Davenport and other prominent eugenics advocates attempting to “purify the race.” These policies continue today with the verifiable targeting of minority communities for a greater proportion of abortion clinics.
At first, abortion being illegal at that time, Planned Parenthood was primarily concerned with the distribution, for eugenic reasons, or various forms of birth control and the distribution of anti-life, anti-family propaganda. When the FDA approved the sale and use of the birth control pill in 1960, the organization, now under the leadership of Allan Guttmacher, shifted focus to, among other things, advocacy of legal abortion as a “family planning” option.
In 1973, the Supreme Court legalized abortion for all nine months in all 50 states with the Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton decisions. Since then, Planned Parenthood has become the country’s largest killer of unborn children in its several hundred abortuaries across the country. They have also had repeated successes lobbying the government for public monies which are spent, either directly or indirectly on killing unborn infants.
Planned Parenthood Today
Today, in addition to surgically killing more children than possibly any other organization in history, Planned Parenthood has built up a long track record of actively supporting and materially aiding illegal activity such as prostitution, sex trafficking and child sex abuse (as revealed by several undercover investigations conducted by various pro-life activist organizations). Planned Parenthood also distributes dangerous “emergency contraception” to thousands of women, including underage girls, while failing to adequately explain the dangers involved or even what the drugs are or do. They do all this while often failing to meet the most basic health and safety standards required of out-patient facilities. A simple internet search using the terms “planned parenthood,” “women” and “death” will discover numerous incidents where the supposed patients have paid the price for these lax standards along with their children.
Because of a series of shameful deal cut with liberal politicians Planned Parenthood is one of the most politically powerful organizations in America today. They use this power to ceaselessly agitate for an expansion of the death regime into every segment of life–even our children’s schools. They must be opposed by all pro-lifers and here in Massachusetts that task falls primarily to MCFL.
