Planned Parenthood has resurfaced as front and center of the abortion debate when a video surfaced of Planned Parenthood executives discussing selling aborted fetuses.
Cecile Richards, president of the organization, said that all practices are within the law and ethical, but admitted the video revealed a lack of compassion:
“Our top priority is the compassionate care that we provide. In the video, one of our staff members speaks in a way that does not reflect that compassion. This is unacceptable, and I personally apologize for the staff member’s tone and statements.”
Planned Parenthood should be defunded of federal funding for the simple fact that taxpayers should not see their money funded to the largest abortion provider.
In 2009 alone, affiliates performed 332,278 abortions and had only 977 adoption referrals. That means that over 97% of the services provided ended up being an abortion.
In 2012, Planned Parenthood made records, but the numbers are cringe worthy. They performed almost 334,000 abortions and saw revenues exceed $87 million.
Planned Parenthood has an extensive negative impact on the back community. While blacks make up for almost 12-15% of the U.S. population, Planned Parenthood clinic are located in 78% of minority communities.
Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, wanted to hide behind religion to cover up her bigotry and racism towards blacks:
“We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”
If government is reconsidering the Confederate flag because of its oppression towards a certain segment of people, surely the funding of Planned Parenthood should be reevaluated in wake of its stance against humanity.
