Birth control is not contraception indiscriminately and thoughtlessly practiced. It means the release and cultivation of the better racial elements in our society, and the gradual suppression, elimination and eventual extirpation of defective stocks— those human weeds which threaten the blooming of the finest flowers of American civilization.
Margaret Sanger, as quoted in The New York Times, April 8, 1923
Planned Parenthood Worse Than Murder, Inc has never strayed far from its racist roots as the routine placement of their abortion clinics in high minority areas attest. Of course today the overt racism of the days of Sanger’s youth is no longer fashionable on the Left where Planned Parenthood gets most of its support, but sometimes the mask slips.
If this sounds like something the alt-right might tweet, as Elliot Kaufman wrote at NRO in August, “contrary to NARAL’s protestations, the leaders of the alt-right are actually pro-choice. They don’t oppose abortion because it’s good for racial minorities; they support abortion because it kills them. They hate black people and think America would be better if fewer of them were born. Though this is terrifying to contemplate, it should not be unfamiliar. In fact, the alt-right tends to praise abortion for the same reasons that Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, praised birth control: They help to rid the country of ‘undesirables.’”
Hey, it’s not like Planned Parenthood’s founder herself ever actually spoke at a KKK rally or anything.
Planned Parenthood Worse Than Murder Inc go together like bread and butter. Their political alliances have changed over time, but that essential reality has not changed.
