In case you missed it, Planned Parenthood quietly dropped its Margaret Sanger Award after the 2015 award went to Dr. Willie Parker. That’s the year after it was awarded to none other than Nancy Pelosi. 

From the PPFA website: “Our highest honor, the Planned Parenthood Federation of America Margaret Sanger Award, is presented annually to recognize leadership, excellence, and outstanding contributions to the reproductive health and rights movement.”

For decades, Planned Parenthood denied its racist origins, and today it denies its racist targeting of people of color for graphic sex ed indoctrination, its birth control and sterilization programs, and its ever-booming abortion business.

But today, remarkably, Planned Parenthood admits in the “Our History” section of its own website that Sanger was involved with eugenics, which it admits is inherently racist and has “deepened racial injustice.”

Quoting the website: “Planned Parenthood traces its roots back to a nurse named Margaret Sanger.”

After sharing the story of Sanger’s arrest in Brooklyn in the early days of her activism comes the lengthy admission: 

Sanger believed in eugenics — an inherently racist and ableist ideology that labeled certain people unfit to have children. Eugenics is the theory that society can be improved through planned breeding for “desirable traits” like intelligence and industriousness. In the early 20th century eugenic ideas were popular among highly educated, privileged, and mostly white Americans. Margaret Sanger pronounced her belief in and alignment with the eugenics movement many times in her writings, especially in the scientific journal Birth Control Review. At times, Sanger tried to argue for a eugenics that was not applied based on race or religion. But in a society built on the belief of white supremacy, physical and mental fitness are always judged based on race. Eugenics, therefore, is inherently racist. She held beliefs that, from the very beginning, undermined her movement for reproductive freedom and caused harm to countless people.

Sanger was so intent on her mission to advocate for birth control that she chose to align herself with ideas and organizations that were ableist and white supremacist. In 1926, she spoke to the women’s auxiliary of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) at a rally in New Jersey to promote birth control methods. Sanger endorsed the 1927 Buck v. Bell decision, in which the Supreme Court ruled that states could forcibly sterilize people deemed “unfit” without their consent and sometimes without their knowledge. The acceptance of this decision by Sanger and other thought leaders laid the foundation for tens of thousands of people to be sterilized, often against their will.

As a result of these choices, the reproductive rights movement, in many cases, deepened racial injustice in the health care system. The field of modern gynecology was founded by J. Marion Sims, who in the mid-1800s repeatedly and forcibly performed invasive experiments on enslaved Black women without anesthesia. In 1939, Sanger began what was called the “Negro Project” — alongside Black leaders like W.E.B. DuBois, Mary McLeod Bethune, and Rev. Adam Clayton Powell. The mission of the Negro Project was to put Black doctors and nurses in charge of birth control clinics to reduce mistrust of a racist health care system. Sanger lost control of the project, and Black women were sent to white doctors for birth control and follow-up appointments, deepening the racist and paternalistic problems of health care in the South. Continuing to this day, Black women’s experiences and pain are too often dismissed or ignored by doctors and other health care providers, which, alongside historical dehumanization of Black people, contributes to staggering and avoidable disparities in health outcomes.

Doesn’t all of this sound so familiar? Much of it is what we have been saying at American Life League for decades. And now Planned Parenthood leadership finally admits that its heroine is a liability. But the organization still won’t admit that she championed the same cause they do today—sexual license at any and all cost, especially the wholesale slaughter of tiny human beings, including disproportionately minority children. According to PP’s last report, almost 355,000 babies in just that one year were killed at its facilities. Each one of them was not only a unique human being but represents generations lost. 

How long will we tolerate Planned Parenthood’s racist extermination tactics? How long will we support a government structure that subsidizes Planned Parenthood with taxpayer money to the tune of $1.7 million per day? The time to stop Planned Parenthood was so many yesterdays ago.

The solution is right before our eyes. It lies with the Rosary. Yes, those prayer beads that have been recently proclaimed in the media a weapon for radical Catholics. In the end, it is Our Lady who will stop Planned Parenthood, and she will do it through the Rosary. We are already seeing the fruits of faithfully praying the Rosary to end abortion and stop Planned Parenthood. Watch for our upcoming announcement. It is a game changer. The stakes have never been higher. It is time for a Marian surge.  

Since the Dobbs decision came down from the Supreme Court, Planned Parenthood and its political arm Planned Parenthood Action Fund are generating fundraising ads that pop up in front of the text on every PP webpage accessed—urgent pleas for money to protect the right to “healthcare,” meaning, of course, unbridled abortion. The action fund page says: “Your contribution will not be earmarked for any purpose, and will generally support our activities to protect and promote reproductive health nationwide.”

This is the same action fund that has announced it will throw $50 million into the US midterm elections to ensure the election of attorneys general and governors who will take Planned Parenthood’s side by refusing to enforce—and will sue against—restrictions on abortion. 

A case in point is Wisconsin, where Planned Parenthood just announced a statewide effort to “elect sexual and reproductive rights champions.” It is part of Planned Parenthood’s national $50 million campaign, which is the largest electoral spending spree in PP’s history.  

A news report on the Wisconsin effort alludes to the importance of the governor’s race and specifically to the fact that the newly elected attorney general “will have the positioning and power to either defend or challenge the right to safe and legal access to abortion rights in Wisconsin.”

Planned Parenthood is desperate to keep abortion unbridled and will stop at nothing to do so. It will spare no expense in getting its political minions elected to the positions that can keep its abortion machine up and running and well oiled. 

As voters, we have an important role to play in the midterm elections. Don’t underestimate the importance of voting. Get out the vote and help stop Planned Parenthood!  

Planned Parenthood Sues Henrietta, New York, for Blocking Abortion Center Permit

The authorities of Henrietta, near Rochester, New York, recently denied Planned Parenthood a permit to establish an abortion center in their town.  “Those of us who are pro-life worked hard to stop them the first time they applied, and we’ll keep peacefully fighting to stop them again,” Rob Pokalsky told the Wednesday STOPP Report.

In denying the request for a permit to open an abortion center in the retail plaza, board members noted that an abortion facility is “inconsistent with the purpose and character of [the retail center] and . . . lacks space for vehicles picking up patients after procedures or patients needing ambulance transport,” according to a news report. Planned Parenthood countered that only “medical” (pill) abortions would be offered, not surgical procedures.

Those opposed to issuing the permit also pointed out that having an abortion center would impact other businesses in the center, likely resulting in a boycott of the surrounding businesses.

Planned Parenthood often resorts to lawsuits to intimidate authorities and force municipalities to issue abortion center permits or suffer financial consequences. 

Congratulations to the pro-life citizens of Henrietta for standing firm against abortion expansion.

According to the latest statistics, abortion pill abortions comprise 54% of all US abortions. Planned Parenthood leads the pack, running 82% of abortion pill facilities that do not also commit surgical abortions. 

A full 69% of Planned Parenthood facilities now commit surgical and/or pill abortions, according to American Life League’s recently released 2021 Planned Parenthood Facilities Report.

ALL’s founder and president, Judie Brown, briefly outlines the history of the deadly pill this week in the Catholic World Report. In her op-ed piece entitled “The Gas Chamber in a Little White Pill,” Brown juxtaposes the pill with another form of chemical warfare on humans, Zyklon B of Nazi extermination camp shame.

“The gas was invented to be a pesticide, not the means by which more than a million human beings would be gassed to death,” Brown writes. Decades later, the gas would be tied to the same company that would create the abortion pill. 

“While we will never forget that tragic time in history, it seems that for some, the chemical tools of death have changed, but the humans who perpetrate death have not. Today, it is the killing of the innocent preborn that takes on the brutal mantle,” Brown said. 

With the “constitutional right” to abortion eliminated by the Dobbs Supreme Court decision, and many states guided by laws that highly restrict abortion, the deadly pill is making its stealthy entrance as the number-one weapon against humanity in the United States and worldwide. It is readily available, requires no surgical procedure rooms or special staffing, and effectively puts the DYI abortion in the hands and homes of women seeking solutions to sometimes desperate situations—alone. Alone to experience what some describe as horrific pain and prolonged bleeding. Alone to experience prolonged nausea and vomiting. Alone to finally deliver their dead babies into the toilet after days of pain and bleeding. 

Funding is provided by abortion activists for travel to non-restrictive abortion hub states. 

Abortion activists post information from overseas pharmacies that will skirt US laws and ship the pills to any address in the US.

Women who believe the propaganda that the pill is “safer than Tylenol” will suffer potentially deadly bleeding and infection, as the FDA warns. 

As of June 2021, the FDA has recorded 26 deaths and thousands of hospitalizations of women who were told that the pill is incredibly safe.

While radical abortion activists torch pregnancy help centers that offer tangible, lifesaving support and help to women and babies in tough situations, Planned Parenthood and its ilk roll out more and more extermination centers. 

Planned Parenthood sues for the right to open extermination-by-pill distribution centers in retail shopping spaces. It throws record-breaking millions of dollars into state election races to put its political minions into office to ensure extermination rights. 

And babies die, and die, and die. 

The suffering of women is exacerbated. 

Fathers abdicate their responsibilities, and two-parent families that work together to form civil society are becoming a thing of the past.

We take courage from these words of St. John Paul II: “The promotion of the culture of life should be the highest priority in our societies. . . . If the right to life is not defended decisively as a condition for all other rights of the person, all other references to human rights remain deceitful and illusory.”

The pontiff further encourages us with these words: “Never tire of firmly speaking out in defense of life from its conception and do not be deterred from the commitment to defend the dignity of every human person with courageous determination. Christ is with you: be not afraid!”

Though chaos seems to reign supreme, it is not what it seems. God reigns supreme, and through the action of the Holy Spirit, the Immaculate Heart of Mary will prevail.
