It is a tragedy that Planned Parenthood, which masquerades as a support service for women's health issues, could ever have gained a positive reputation in American society. It is an even greater outrage that hundreds of millions of federal tax dollars are funneled into the group's coffers every year.
Founded by Margaret Sanger, one of the most notorious racists ever to influence American public opinion, Planned Parenthood has become exactly what she envisioned it to be: a merchant of death, with abortion clinics preying primarily upon poor and minority women in virtually every major city in the country. Of the 4,000 pre-born babies killed in their mothers' wombs each day, approximately one fourth of them are slaughtered by this vile organization. A disproportionate number of those babies are African-American. As Jesse Jackson predicted many years ago — before he sold his soul to the radical elements of the Democratic Party — legalized abortion will be a tool used to eliminate as many black people as possible.
As an avid supporter of the Eugenics Movement and a great admirer of Adolf Hitler, Margaret Sanger would be proud of what she has wrought. Planned Parenthood is a deceitful criminal enterprise endorsed and supported by some of the most powerful people in the world, from Members of Congress to presidents (especially this one) to mega-wealthy liberal "philanthropists" like George Soros and Warren Buffet.
During private sting operations in one location after another, Planned Parenthood employees have been caught on tape telling underage girls impregnated by older men that they can abort their babies in complete secrecy. Didn't hear about that on your nightly news? I wonder why.
Let me repeat: girls as young as 12, 13 or 14 years of age are being systematically counseled by Planned Parenthood to secretly abort their babies after being impregnated by adult men. These men could be older boyfriends. They could be fathers, stepfathers, uncles, or brothers. They could be teachers. They could be middle school guidance counselors. Coach Jerry Sandusky's offenses at Penn State were no worse than the perverts being shielded by Planned Parenthood.
The organization is currently under investigation by Congress, which has the authority to cut off their federal funding. Meanwhile, the group rakes in millions from abortions and private donations.
Which brings us to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. This breast cancer research charity has contributed millions of dollars to Planned Parenthood over the years, ostensibly for breast cancer screening. Of course, like the federal tax revenue the nationwide abortion behemoth gets every year, there is no way of distinguishing where breast exams or birth control funding ends and the methodical killing of unborn babies begins.
Recently, for whatever reason, the Komen Foundation decided to end its funding of Planned Parenthood. From the hue and cry that went up from the Left, one would have thought there were no other sources for breast cancer screening in the entire United States of America — and that these types of exams were the only service Planned Parenthood provides. Left-wing donors threatened to pull their financial backing. However, pro-life groups around the country, buoyed by the news of Komen's decision, urged their supporters to give to the group. Many did, but before the checks could clear, the foundation had buckled under the pressure and reversed their decision. Now, no one trusts them.
Perhaps the cruelest irony of all is the fact that in recent years, medical science has established a clear link between abortions — especially multiple abortions — and increased incidents of breast cancer. Didn't see that report on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, Headline News or in The New York Times, either, did you? No, and you won't as long as the alphabet networks and their friends in the elite Manhattan media are committed to the idea that Planned Parenthood can do no wrong.
One wonders if Margaret Sanger would be distressed to learn that the fulfillment of her vision is now contributing to breast cancer rates. Probably only if it were among white women.
