All the News That's Fit to be Tied

I have an axe to grind, but unlike the New York Times, I freely admit it.

Life Always Exposes Planned Parenthood

When Planned Parenthood calls upon one of its biggest racial gunslingers, you know someone touched a nerve. In an attempt to quiet Life Always, an anti-abortion group, Planned Parenthood called on Al Sharpton to help have a billboard taken down that calls the 36-percent abortion rate of black women the number one killer in the black community since 1973. Life Always board member Pastor Steve Broden notes that Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger was a supporter of Eugenics, which espouses the theory of a master race and contemplates the elimination of inferior individuals. In her book, Pivot of Civilization, Sanger referred to immigrants and poor people as "...human weeds, reckless breeders, and spawning... human beings who never should have been born." She once wrote "The most merciful thing that a large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it." There are many who believe Margaret Sanger was a racist as well as a believer in the master race concept espoused by Adolph Hitler. There are many that say she founded Planned Parenthood to achieve those goals. Has she succeeded? Life Always would say yes.
