Yes, Planned Parenthood is still racist

The Pro-Life publication The Advocate recently conducted a shocking study into the attitudes of Planned Parenthood employees towards African Americans that revealed that PP, even at its lower levels, still embraces the idea of using abortion as a means to reduce the black population. I want to thank the Lubitz family of the Diocese of Albequerque for brining this to my attention via their excellent little publication, The Los Pequenos Pepper.

The investigation into the financial dealings of PP was very telling. Lila Rose, of The Advocate, explained their investigation this way:

"We obtained the information by having an actor call clinics across the country and pose as a donor. The actor who called, The Advocate’s advisor, communicated to them a very racist agenda—the one that Margaret Sanger, Planned Parenthood’s founder, had envisioned. He then asked to donate money specifically for the abortions of African-American babies in order to "lower the number of blacks in America" (source).

So an actor calls up with a blatantly racist agenda, asking to donate money specifically for a black baby. How does PP react to these calls? Rose says, "Despite his bigoted requests, no Planned Parenthood employee (or director of development, in one case) declined the tainted money. Some even asked to speak with other employees to get permission. In the first day of calling seven clinics, not a single Planned Parenthood representative expressed outrage or concern at the racism behind donations specifically "to reduce the number of blacks." In fact, some even went as far as agreeing with the anti-black agenda."

Here's a transcript of one of the calls from Idaho (remember, the "donor" is an actor):

Idaho donor: The abortion—I can give money specifically for a black baby, that would be the purpose?

PP Rep: Absolutely. If you wanted to designate that your gift be used to help an African-American woman in need, then we would certainly make sure that the gift was earmarked for that purpose.

Idaho donor: Great, because I really faced trouble with affirmative action, and I don’t want my kids to be disadvantaged against black kids. I just had a baby; I want to put it in his name.

PP Rep: Yes, absolutely.

Idaho donor: And we don’t, you know we just think, the less black kids out there the better.

PP Rep: Understandable, understandable.

Idaho donor: Right. I want to protect my son, so he can get into college.

PP Rep: Alright. Excuse my hesitation, this is the first time I’ve had a donor call and make this kind of request, so I’m excited, and want to make sure I don’t leave anything out.

Clearly, Planned Parenthood is still following right in the tracks of its racist founder, Margaret Sanger. You can view the entire story here and listen to the actual recordings of these phone calls.

This made the news about a year ago, and when I say "news" I mean conservative talk radio.

It blows me away that the MSM never picked up on this, and other exposes of PP. The blatant racism and flaunting of laws (15 year old girl goes in and tells them her 31 year old boyfriend got her pregnant and they do not report it to the authorities) that PP engages in and is not held accountable for is one of the worst signs of our times.
