If you have ever witnessed one of those “spontaneous” pro-abortion demonstrations held in Washington whenever Congress contemplates curtailing taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood, you may have noticed that there was something missing—African-American demonstrators. This is odd, considering that black women are far more likely to have abortions than are their Caucasian counterparts. And, examined in light of the now infamous video of a white Planned Parenthood official discussing how to crush a baby without damaging marketable livers and other organs, it is particularly ominous. Why? Because the terminated baby will probably have been black, and that is no coincidence.
Am I suggesting that Planned Parenthood purposely mines a specific minority group for “products of conception”? Yep. There has long been concern in the black community that this organization views African-Americans as grist for its abortion mills. Dr. Alveda King, niece of slain civil rights leader Martin Luther King, has put it thus: “The most obvious practitioner of racism in the United States today is Planned Parenthood… founded by the eugenicist Margaret Sanger and recently documented as ready to accept money to eliminate black babies.” Her reference to money involves Planned Parenthood’s willingness to accept targeted donations for the abortion of African-American infants.
Dr. King’s conviction that Planned Parenthood is racist cannot be written off as paranoia or some wacky conspiracy theory. As columnist Star Parker has pointed out, “Analysis of 2010 census data… shows that 79 percent of Planned Parenthood abortion clinics are located in walking distance of minority neighborhoods.” And this suspicious proximity has produced disturbing results. Arina Grossu reports in the Washington Times that “The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Abortion Surveillance report revealed that… nearly 36 percent of all abortions in the United States were performed on black children, even though black Americans make up only 13 percent of our population.”
And what of Planned Parenthood’s founder? Margaret Sanger was one of America’s best known proponents of eugenics—a fact that Planned Parenthood only recently stopped denying. She was also a racist who spoke to the women’s branch of the KKK and was the primary organizer of the “Negro Project.” The latter undertaking, like her passion for eugenics, has been shamelessly whitewashed by “reproductive rights” activists. Sanger was also an anti-Catholic bigot who was confronted by Mike Wallace in this television interview about her statement that “It should be made illegal for any religious group to prohibit dissemination of birth control even among its own members.” Sound familiar?
All of which naturally means that the Democrats, those dauntless champions of the underprivileged who battle bigotry in all its forms, have vehemently denounced Planned Parenthood’s blasé view of infant dismemberment as well as its odor of racism. Oh, wait … It turns out that the party of Andrew Jackson (see native-American genocide) has circled the wagons around these callous purveyors of baby body parts. The White House is defending these creeps, as are its Capitol Hill accomplices. The Hill reports, “Congressional Democrats are coming to the defense of Planned Parenthood as Republicans launch investigations into the group’s use of fetal tissue from abortions.”
These GOP investigations involve Planned Parenthood’s “donations” of organs to for-profit companies. The New York Times reports, “Speaker John A. Boehner and other top Republicans suggested that Planned Parenthood was selling fetal parts, which is illegal if done for profit.” The organization’s leadership insists that it charges only for “expenses such as processing and transporting.” This claim, however, may be hard to sell once investigators see this brochure from one of Planned Parenthood’s collaborators in the harvesting of livers and other infant organs. It lists a variety of benefits that potential clients can expect to receive, and the words “Financially Profitable” are prominently featured.
And how have the media responded to the macabre spectacle of a Planned Parenthood official casually discussing the growing demand for these livers while sipping wine and munching arugula? By attacking the people who exposed them. The Los Angeles Times, for example, shows no interest at all in whether Planned Parenthood’s “donations” of infant organs to for-profit entities are legal, yet suggests that the covert videographer “violated a California law which forbids recording a person without consent.” Likewise, the Huffington Post insinuates that the Center for Medical Progress, which produced the undercover video, “deceived the Internal Revenue Service… about its mission.”
This is reminiscent of the way Herman Cain was attacked in 2011, when he pointed out that Planned Parenthood had set up most of its “reproductive health centers” in or near minority neighborhoods. Although Cain’s assertion could have been easily verified by honest journalists, his integrity and intelligence were questioned by virtually every legacy “news” outlet. Cain refused to recant, however. Indeed, when pressed to do so, he responded, “It’s not Planned Parenthood. No, it’s planned genocide.” The above-quoted statistics notwithstanding, that may be difficult to prove in the end. Nonetheless, it’s blindingly obvious that these ghouls should not receive another dime of taxpayer money.
