Surprise, surprise! This court case proves Planned Parenthood is still racist

Most Americans don’t realize why Planned Parenthood was even started in the first place.

The simple fact is, it was started by racist eugenicist Margaret Sanger to try and use abortion and family planning to stop minorities from having children.

And surprise, surprise! This court case proves Planned Parenthood is still racist.

In the ongoing battle over abortion, some truths are being ignored by the radical pro-abortion forces.

A legacy of racism

And foremost among them is the blatantly racist roots of the abortion mill industry.

Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood was a well-known racist and adherent of eugenics (the belief in selective breeding to create a master race).

In fact, Planned Parenthood got its start to force birth control on black Americans through Sanger’s “Negro Project.”

Sanger herself wrote in her own autobiography about speaking to Ku Klux Klan groups and advocating for a eugenics approach to human breeding for “the gradual suppression, elimination and eventual extinction, of defective stocks — those human weeds which threaten the blooming of the finest flowers of American civilization.”

Among those human weeds in Sanger’s view included Black Americans.

But that legacy of racism still exists today in Planned Parenthood.

Selective abortions in minority communities

For example, according to the Centers for Disease Control, the vast majority of the Planned Parenthood’s abortion mills have set up shop in minority neighborhoods.

This means that while they are only 13% of the U.S. female population, African-Americans made up 38% of all abortions.

And recently more than 300 former and current employees of Planned Parenthood wrote about the continued racist views of Planned Parenthood in an open letter, noting a “toxic” environment.

“Planned Parenthood was founded by a racist, white woman. That is a part of history that cannot be changed,” the letter said, writing that the pattern of “systemic racism, pay inequity, and lack of upward mobility for Black staff” continues. 

When the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision legalized abortion in the 1970s, polling at the time showed that blacks were “significantly less likely to favor abortion” than whites. 

Yet in New York City today, more black babies are aborted than are born alive each year. 

And the abortion industry’s own think tank, the Guttmacher Institute, admits that “the abortion rate for black women is almost five times that for white women.”

It would seem Margaret Sanger’s vision of primarily ending black lives with abortion has come to pass.

Discrimination lawsuit bringing Planned Parenthood’s racism on full display

When she was laid off from Planned Parenthood in the spring of 2021, Michelle Fisher knew it was in retaliation for filing multiple discrimination complaints to human resources. 

That’s when Fisher decided to do even more to bring Planned Parenthood’s discrimination to light. Fisher decided to sue.

In May 2022, Fisher sued Planned Parenthood of Northern, Central, and Southern New Jersey for race discrimination and wrongful termination.

Fisher was deposed in March of this year and the case is ongoing.

But Fisher isn’t the only one.

Over the last five years alone, discrimination lawsuits have been filed by at least two dozen former and current employees of Planned Parenthood’s 49 affiliates.

Margaret Sanger would be proud.
