The Truth About Planned Parenthood: A History of Planned Parenthood


The Founding of Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood's founder and heroine (and whom Planned Parenthood's most prestigious award is named after) is Margaret Sanger, a radical woman (1879-1966) who believed in limiting the reproduction of "inferior classes." Planned Parenthood and many abortion activists praise Sanger for furthering "reproductive rights" and women's rights. However, Sanger did not have women's best interest in mind. Sanger advanced her radical eugenic ideals under the guise of "freeing women" with birth control.

Planned Parenthood's basis in "sex-education" began with Sanger's advocacy of "sex-education" that heavily reflected her interest in population control. Sanger published many articles, including "Some Moral Aspects of Eugenics" (June 1920), "The Eugenic Conscience" (February 1921), "The purpose of Eugenics" (December 1924), "Birth Control and Positive Eugenics" (July 1925), "Birth Control: The True Eugenics" (August 1928). In her book published for children and young people, What Every Boy and Girl Should Know (1915), Sanger wrote:

"It is a vicious cycle; ignorance breeds poverty and poverty breeds ignorance. There is only one cure for both, and that is to stop breeding these things. Stop bringing to birth children whose inheritance cannot be one of health or intelligence. Stop bringing into the world children whose parents cannot provide for them."

Sanger's ideas on eugenics, birth control, and sex education, culminate in her lack of value for any human life, particularly the innocent lives of the unborn and the elderly, who are not deemed to live a quality of life beneficial for society. In her 1920 book titled, Women and a New Race, Sanger famously wrote, "the most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it."

Margaret Sanger's American Birth Control League (ABCL), and other groups that shared her terrifying ideals, eventually united to become Planned Parenthood. The abortion giant continues to carry on Sanger's disturbing beliefs through their current practices and services today. Just as Sanger his her most radical ideas from being publicized too much - recognizing that such immoral thinking would not be readily accepted by society in order to progress forward with her organizations - Planned Parenthood continues to use deception and masks is destructive practices under the guise of women's health and women's rights.

Then to Now: Planned Parenthood Today

Founded in the radical ideals of eugenics, ending human life, and perpetuating a promiscuous sex-education that pushed further for the need of birth control, it is no surprise the Planned Parenthoods main services align with Sanger's 100-year-old vision.

Research shows that more Planned Parenthoods are located in African-American and other minority neighborhoods. Statistics provided by the CDC (Center for Disease Control) prove that minority abortions are disproportional to the minority population. Alveda King, niece of Martin Luther King Jr. and Right to Life activist, has spoken out about abortion as "black genocide," finding in her research that in some minority neighborhoods, more black babies are aborted than born. Written reports and videos of Planned Parenthood taking racially motivated donations can be viewed here.

The minority problem stretches from race to gender. Even though Planned Parenthood has publically stated that they discourage abortions motivated by gender of the baby, very few of their centers or clinics take steps towards preventing such motivated abortions. Further, some employees even suggested a late-term abortion to a birth mom who wanted a boy but may have been pregnant with a girl. Videos and written reports on this issue can be explored here.

In addition to many health code violations that plague abortion centers who do not follow regulations, one of the largest concerns about Planned Parenthood is their tendency to not comply with statutory rape laws. Planned Parenthood centers, in more than six different states, have been caught covering up statutory rape cases (by not taking proper protocol to report statutory rape or child abuse cases) on record - watch here. Planned Parenthood nurses and employees avoid asking young women essential questions about their pregnancy and who the father is, and sometimes even say they're going to "pretend not to hear" disturbing statements from patients who confide in them. Watch one of many videos recording these cover ups here.

Failing to report pregnancies and sending young women back into unsafe situations raises major concerns about Planned Parenthoods role in aiding sex trafficking. In 2011, a Planned Parenthood employee was caught on tape coaching a man and woman, posing as a pimp and prostitute, on how to obtain abortions, birth control and STD testing for their underage female slaves. You can watch the video here. The Planned Parenthood employee featured in the video has since been fired, but evidence shows this is not an isolated case.

Planned Parenthood makes a lot promises and throws out a lot of statistics about the services they offer. Unfortunately, most of these claims are untrue. Real statistics from Planned Parenthood's own reports that reveal their lies and tell the dismal truth can be found on our Facts and Statistics page.
