In a Planned Parenthood clinic in Central Ohio, a young girl entrusted that she had been forced to have sex with her father for three years to the clinic employees. The clinic refused to report the crime as required by law. The young girlís abuse continued for two more years. Her father accompanied her to a Planned Parenthood facility for an abortion. The girl sued the clinic for failing to report the crime. 70% of all abortion clinics are located in the inner cities and poor communities where minorities live. This is Planned Parenthood.
Margaret Sanger, an activist and social reformer at the turn of the century birthed Planned Parenthood. What started as a "Negro Project," she staffed clinics with African-American doctors, nurses, and clergy. She intentionally placed the offices in poor communities. She needed them on her side so they would help her deliver birth control to African-American communities. The goal was to control the African-American population.
Planned Parenthood has recently come under fire from pro-life reporters. The Advocate, a student magazine at UCLA, released recordings of Planned Parenthood fundraising staff accepting donations from donors who say directly that they want their money used to abort African-American babies. The Advocate hired an actor to call Planned Parenthood facilities to request his money be used to help "Lower the number of black people." Planned Parenthood accepted the donation, with recordings of one representative saying she was excited to process his request.
Dr. Alveda King, a niece of Martin Luther King Jr,, enlightened a University of Missouri audience to the fact that 16 million African American babies have been aborted since 1973. Estimates show that America is responsible for 60 million abortions. Statistics say that 1 out of 4 abortions in America are performed on African Americans, who make up 13% of the American population. In 2012, more African-American babies were aborted in New York City than were born.
United States legislators passed the Equality Act in 2010. It provided basic equality rights, including equal pay, protecting races, sexes, people with disabilities, and people with religion from discrimination. The act failed to protect minority babies, unborn but fully developed, from basic human rights.
500 million dollars annually, in tax payer money, supports Planned Parenthood: an agency that has a strong history of targeting minorities. For a country concerned with equality, the history, research, and trends surrounding Planned Parenthood beg the question if they're on the same side as those fighting for equality.
