Sin of Planned Parenthood Is Abortion, Not Margaret Sanger

The president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Alexis McGill Johnson, has used The New York Times as a confessional to fess up to the racist history of Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger.

“We must reckon with Margaret Sanger’s association with white supremacist groups and eugenics,” she writes.

Sanger’s involvement with the notoriously racist eugenics movement in the 1920s, and her population-control motivations to limit the procreation of “undesirables,” is something pro-lifers, particularly black pro-lifers, have been writing about for years.

But Planned Parenthood has always been in denial about these very ugly truths.

Now, apparently, the power and pressure of “wokeness” is even getting the leadership of the nation’s largest abortion provider to step forward and unburden themselves from their sins.

But coming to terms with sin means knowing what sin is. And here, unfortunately, Planned Parenthood’s president totally misses the point.

The problem today is not what was but what is. The “sin” of Planned Parenthood is its horrible work in leading the nation in the destruction of human life.

Per its annual report, in fiscal year 2019-2020, Planned Parenthood performed 354,871 abortions. This is roughly one-third of all abortions performed in the country.

The recognition we need from Planned Parenthood is the recognition of the sanctity of life, not public confession of the racist history of its founder.

Regarding racism, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation, 34% of abortions performed in the U.S. in 2018 were on black women. Given that black women constitute 13% of the female population, the incidence of abortion among black women is out of proportion by almost a factor of three.

It is reasonable to assume that this is representative of the disproportionate number of black women on whom Planned Parenthood performs abortions.

As part of Planned Parenthood’s great cleansing, Johnson notes that “Planned Parenthood of Greater New York renamed its Manhattan health center in 2020,” which apparently bore Sanger’s name.

The Wall Street Journal’s Jason Riley wrote in 2018, “In New York City, thousands more black babies are aborted than born alive each year, and the abortion rate among black mothers is more than three times higher than it is for white mothers. ”

The problem is the wholesale termination of black unborn babies, not the name of the center in Manhattan where Planned Parenthood performs these abortions. New York City is one of the abortion capitals of the nation, and Planned Parenthood wants to take the edge off by renaming its abortion center.

Does Planned Parenthood target black women for abortions? Why is the incidence of abortion so high among black women?

A 2012 study by Protecting Black Life found that 79% of Planned Parenthood abortion facilities were within walking distance of minority neighborhoods.

Abortion rates tend to be higher among unmarried women because of a higher likelihood of unwanted pregnancy. The culture of abortion, aggressively promoted by Planned Parenthood, has disproportionately affected black marriage rates.

In 1970, three years before the Roe v. Wade decision, 76% of white adults age 25 and older were married, compared with 60% of blacks. By 2014, the rate dropped to 60% for whites, but it dropped to 35% for blacks.

Johnson takes one step further into the moral abyss, noting that Planned Parenthood is remiss for having “excluded trans and nonbinary people” from its programs.

She writes that Planned Parenthood pledges “to fight the many types of dehumanization we are seeing right now.”

Dehumanization has one cause, of which Planned Parenthood is among the guiltiest in the nation: lack of respect for the sanctity of life.

Confessing what we all know — that Margaret Sanger was a racist — does not solve this problem.

Reverence for the sanctity of marriage and the sanctity of life in the womb solves it.

This is what we are looking for from Planned Parenthood. Nothing less.

Remove all these spam phony ads. They’re always first in line, like they were put there by a bot. Why is it other posts with some questionable content are removed, but this nonsense is permitted to stay?

KNOWING THAT ONE OF THE HIGHER UP PEOPLE HAS A FATHER THAT IS THE HEAD OF PLANNED PARENTHOOD. NATURALLY A DEMOCRAT. I ALSO SAW WHERE THEY ARE EXPERIMENTING ON BABIES AT THE FETUS STAGE OF ONE MONTH OR 2, HOW CAN THEY GET ORGANS FROM A FETUS? I BELIEVE IF MOTHERS OF BABIES THAT HAD TO BE ABORTED WOULD NOT WANT PARTS OF THEIR BABIES SOLD ON THE MARKET FOR MILLIONS OF DOLLARS.

No baby of ANY color should be aborted unless the pregnancy is a threat to the Mother’s life. Planned Parent Hoods abortions should be banned in ALL cases. I believe that a child is a gift from God and should never be killed. I had a premature baby and she weighed 2 lbs 2 oz at birth. She was 2 months premature. Today she is a beautiful Mom of 2 and living a good life. It was hard times when she was born but worth every sacrifice. DO NOT KILL CHILDREN.

Theresa,
Even if a doctor says that a baby is a threat to the mothers life—the doctor is not God. How many doctors have told moms that this baby needs to be aborted and the mother refused to KILL her baby and after the baby was born, there was nothing wrong with the baby and had a normal and healthy life.
We still have a God that does miracles if only people would believe and trust Him, for He us loving, kind and merciful. All aborthions are MURDER in the sight of our Lord God, the creator of all things good and wonderful.

Absolutely right, Theresa, abortion is nothing less than pre-meditated murder and should be punished as such by the law. The real standard of law comes from the hand of God, not man. God calls for the death penalty for someone who causes a pregnant woman to lose her baby. If God considers that murder, so should we! Planned Parenthood is really nothing more than a legal murder society, as far as I’m concerned.

God will deal with those that take another innocent persons life. I would be very afraid if I were the ones okaying and doing the abortions. They may skate by in this life, but they will pay the price in the next life. And take my word for it…..there is a next life where we will all be judged.

i have a great idea.. if a woman gets pregeant, if she doesn’t want the baby ask the FATHER if he would like it to raise. if the father says NO than the woman can have an abortion. that makes both of them, farther and mother, to share the blame I FIRMLY BELIEVE THAT ABORTION SHOULD NOT BE USED AS BIRTH CONTROL
