Planned Parenthood is Tuskegee 2.0
Imagine reading this headline in your local newspaper: “If the Tuskegee Experiments Were Being Run by Planned Parenthood Today, Congress Would Increase Their Funding!”
Would you be outraged? One presumes you would be, but the sad fact is that the idea is not too far-fetched. Let’s look at the facts.
Planned Parenthood’s foundress, Margaret Sanger, supported eugenics. The record is well documented. In one exposé on this subject, Tanya Green wrote about Sanger’s “Negro Project,” telling the reader, “The aim of the program was to restrict–many believe exterminate–the black population. Under the pretense of “better health” and “family planning,” Sanger cleverly implemented her plan. What’s more shocking is Sanger’s beguilement of black America’s créme de la créme–those prominent, well educated and well-to-do–into executing her scheme. Some within the black elite saw birth control as a means to attain economic empowerment, elevate the race, and garner the respect of whites.”
