      Arrow Planned Parenthood

      “…human weeds,’ ‘reckless breeders,’ ‘spawning… human beings who never should have been born.” Margaret Sanger, Pivot of Civilization, referring to immigrants, African Americans and poor people.

      Planned Parenthood has a long and well-documented history of racism beginning with its founder, Margaret Sanger. More African-Americans have died from abortion than from AIDS, accidents, violent crimes, cancer, and heart disease combined. And in America today, a black child is three times more likely to be killed in the womb than a white child.

      Since 1973, abortion has reduced the black population by over 25%.

      Planned Parenthood operates the nation’s largest chain of abortion clinics. While only 13% of American women are Black, 63% of Planned Parenthood facilities are located in solidly Black neighborhoods.

      While these statistics are shocking, they are embedded in the history of Planned Parenthood. Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, was active with the Klu Klux Klan and the eugenics movement in the beginning of the twentieth century.

      Today, Planned Parenthood is the number one provider of abortions in the United States and received over 350 million dollars in taxpayer funding in 2009. While they claim that they do much more than abort children, their own figures tell a different story: in 2007, they made only 5,000 adoption referrals, while aborting over 300,000 children.

      We are justified by works - just not our own.

      There was a meme going around on FB about murder of a child born verses one in the womb...that you can't hear them scream while they're in the womb.

      The "trickery" is in the numbers with P.P. as well. The percentage of abortions to "other services" that seems so low, cited by P.P. and its advocates, is a really distressing formula. The definition of a "service" is quite broad. If female "X" comes in for a visit, and receives a visit from the doctor, an advocate who provides information on protected sex, and a worker who dispenses condoms/IUD's/birth control - those are three separate "services". And let's say female "X" has several of these visits prior to consenting to an abortion procedure. What percentage of "other services" did P.P. provide, compared to the abortion procedure? Now let's multiply this by the 'Y' number of women served by P.P. annually, and there's your overall percentage.
