Skip to comments.Planned Parenthood and Margaret Sanger: Agents of Death
Posted on 11/28/2011 4:06:07 PM PST by wagglebee
According to its website, for more than 90 years, Planned Parenthood has promoted a commonsense approach to womens health and well-being, based on respect for each individuals right to make informed, independent decisions about health, sex, and family planning.
There is in this glowing self-endorsement a subtle tribute to Planned Parenthoods founder Margaret Sanger. An unabashed eugenicist, Ms. Sangers commonsense approach to unwanted pregnancies and undesirable demographic groups, such as minorities and the handicapped, was clear and unambiguous. She maintained that the most merciful thing that a family does to one of its infant members is to kill it, and that birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race.
Sanger would, no doubt, be proud of the legacy begotten by her monstrous ideology. Planned Parenthood is by far the largest abortion provider in the United States. In 2009, surgical abortions accounted for 97.6% of their services to pregnant women. In other words, Planned Parenthood has become a euphemism for the abortion business yields big bucks. It might tout itself as a commonsense organization that provides a wide array of family planning services, but the truth is in the statistics.
There is one major difference between the Planned Parenthood of today and that of Margaret Sangers time: Margaret Sanger was brutally honest about her disregard for the unborn, while contemporary abortion advocates hide behind the language of choice in order to disguise the ugly reality of what they advocate. Unfortunately, this campaign of misdirection has been wildly successful. Many women instinctively rally behind a womans right to choose, without giving much thought to the reality behind the choice at issue. In the abortion debate, we arent talking about choosing between chocolate or vanilla, fried or scrambled, with fries or without. We are talking about choosing whether a baby will live or die, whether we will kill it or give it life, whether we will destroy or protect an innocent child.
So powerful has our delusion about the reality of abortion become and so powerful the pro-abortion lobby behind Planned Parenthood that our elected representatives allocate hundreds of millions of dollars each year to Planned Parenthood. This funding has withstood year after year of budget debates and political controversy. Make no mistake about it, however, that money is blood money. Planned Parenthood preys on the fear and ignorance of women faced with unplanned pregnancies as a means of advancing their twisted worldview. Instead of celebrating life as a blessing, even when unplanned, Planned Parenthoods operatives peddle the myth that pregnancy and parenthood is some kind misogynistic social construct used to keep women dependent and servile. They tell women that the right to choose abortion is a right intricately tied to their female identity, rather than a betrayal of a sacred duty bestowed by the author of the universe. They tell women that choosing abortion is an empowering decision, not one that can impact future fertility and inflict emotional and psychological scars that last a lifetime.
Advocates of life must not give up in their quest to shed light on the true nature of Planned Parenthoods work and the repugnant ideology that inspired its founding. They must continue working to support organizations that offer women true choice: the choice to view their unborn child as a blessing, and the vocation of parenthood as the greatest calling a human being can answer. The time is long overdue for Planned Parenthood to be denounced as an agent of death and despair and its abortion activities declared illegal.

Sanger and her co-conspirators created the most deadly and evil institution in the history of the world.

There are moments in our lives that we may make the wrong decision. Some of these moments may be when we are young and naive, and so easily influenced. Sadly, these decisions will affect the rest of our lives.
Whose goal was to reduce/eliminate the Negro race in this county.
Abortion was common and wide spread in the Greco-Roman world too. It is amazing how history repeats itself...
“Christians...practiced a morality that condemned the common Roman practices of abortion, infanticide, abandoning infants, suicide, homosexual sex, “patria potestas,” and the degradation of women. Their moral posture was one of the many reasons why they were harassed, hated, despised, and often imprisoned, tortured, or killed. The Romans made them into an army of martyrs.”
—a quote from Alvin Schmidt’s book, “Under the Influence”
May Christians continue to fight the battle in the power of the Holy Spirit within them.
Planned parenthood tried to talk me into an abortion on my third of four children.
I went in to GET A PREGNANCY TEST and was coerced over and over to watch a movie about MY CHOICES.
I was 29. Had a good job, owned my home. I left in tears. Her name is Amanda. She is now 25. She has given me three grandchildren.
More like the MOD - Merchants Of Death - The MOD Squad!
Sanger is the worst mass murderer in history, still killing the most innocent and defenseless long after her death.
God Bless you and your family
Ditto. What a moving story.

Ive read transcript quotes from her speeches. She said thing like, We will eliminate all those ugly little brown people not by killing them but by preventing them from being born. If I were black, Id run from anything shed created, like Planned Parenthood. I saw an estimate that Planned Parenthood had performed 50 million abortions on those ugly little brown people. BTW, her scope was world-wide; not just the United States.
Incidentally, heres an interesting note. Word 2010 recognized that planned parenthood should be Planned Parenthood and underlined it with wavy lines indicating that I need to capitalize it. That tells you how entrenched it is in the culture.
God bless you for not believing PP.
Conservatives should continually point out the alliance between the Progressive movement and the KKK. The Progressive movement of today still champions many policies that originated with this KKK alliance of theirs. Abortion policies (bigotry and the murder of life), Separation of Church and State (bigotry and denial of rights), and affirmative action type policies that make one group of people live under one set of heavy handed laws while another group gets special treatment all originate from the mentality of the KKK progressives.
Yet the TEA party instead gets accused of racism based upon NO evidence at all. It is the progressive movement and the democrat party that is still to this day aligned with the KKK.
