Planned Parenthood Exploits Mother's Day Again

Once again this past Mother's Day, Planned Parenthood reached out to those mothers who regret having children and would have done otherwise if only they had better access to so-called "reproductive health" options.

Some would think that the largest abortion operation in America would give it a rest on Mother's Day.

Not a chance.

This year they offered 4 Mother's Day cards, all celebrating "choice" rather than "life"---reaching out to the "angry" women who have been denied "reproductive health" options like destroying the life of an unwanted child.

And in the true spirit of Planned Parenthood's founder, racist and eugenicist Margaret Sanger, 3 of the 4 cards depict Black women.

Dr. Alveda King wrote yesterday, "My mother was not only angry in 1950, she was pregnant and scared; seeking a D&C. Thank God my Granddaddy Dr. Martin Luther King Sr. had seen me in a dream in 1947; and he was looking and waiting for me."

Dr. Thomas Williams observed that Planned Parenthood made 4 cards available this past Mother's Day. Each celebrated "choice" above "life" and in the spirit of Margaret Sanger, 3 of the 4 cards depicted black women.

His short article is revealing. I recommend you read it.

The contrast between life and death reveal many moral conflicts, none greater than the message of Planned Parenthood and their actual mission.

Describing their mission as one that ensures "rights," they have slaughtered 10's of millions of babies.

Describing their efforts as compassionate toward the less fortunate, minority neighborhoods of America and now the world, a majority of the those babies slaughtered are black babies.

Is their urgency really driven by the relativist "virtue" of choice or the racist, eugenicist ideology of their founder Margaret Sanger?

The Washington Times wrote an excellent, well documented article last year about the beliefs of Margaret Sanger and how those beliefs led her and her colleagues to found what we know as Planned Parenthood.

The article is very informative. For example, it exposes a newly discovered video from 1947 where Sanger is demanding "no more babies" for 10 years in developing countries.

In "An Autobiography" ( page 366), Sanger recounts how she was invited to speak to the women's branch of the Klu Klux Klan in Silver Lake, N.J. She says that opened more speaking opportunities to other KKK groups and it "accomplished my purpose."

In a letter to Clarence Gable in 1939, Sanger wrote, "We do not want 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."

In 1957 she told Mike Wallace on CBS, "I think the greatest sin in the world is bringing children into the world...that have diseased parents, that have no chance in the world to be a human being practically. Delinquents, prisoners, all sorts of things just marked when they're born. That to me is the greatest sin---that people can---can commit."

Therein lies the moral worldview of Planned Parenthood's founder.

My critics will say that does not correctly define Planned Parenthood in our times.

Yes it does.

Each year Planned Parenthood awards the "Margaret Sanger Award" to the person they feel has been most effective in advancing their mission.

Hillary Clinton received the award in 2009.

In receiving the award, she told the audience, "I admire Margaret Sanger enormously, her courage, her tenacity, her vision. I am really in awe of her, there are a lot of lessons we can learn from her life."

Also in 2009 before a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing on foreign policy she compared Margaret Sanger to Thomas Jefferson.

Planned Parenthood and its most important benefactors have not "evolved" very far from Sanger's root.

Planned Parenthood is the face of evil---not only in the Black communities, but in the pro-life community at large.

Yesterday, Dr. Alveda King wrote about a better way. The way of life.

She writes, "My mother was not only angry in 1950, she was pregnant and scared; seeking a D&C. Thank God my Granddady Dr. Martin Luther King, Sr. had seen me in a dream in 1947; and he was looking and waiting for me."

Alveda writes of how her grandfather and father insured she would be born, and how they helped her mother through years of fear and anger to where she finally came to personally know the love and grace of Jesus Christ.

She says, "If my family had followed the abortion friendly path...I and my siblings may have never been born."

She quotes feminist theologian Kristine Holmgren writing for the far left Huffington Post, "If you were born before women had access to safe, affordable, accessible abortion, chances are your mother was an angry mother."

Alveda says she too made some scared and angry decisions, having 2 abortions, and now lives with the consequences, however it was her grandfather Dr. Martin Luther King, Sr. who also helped her to personally understand the love and grace of Jesus Christ.

She says, "Anger is one thing, dead babies are quite another thing altogether."

"Planned Parenthood and the entire abortion industry are wrong. Abortion is not a Civil Right," she says. Continuing-- "A woman has a right to choose what she does with her body; a baby is not her body" asking "how can the dream survive if we murder our children?"

Her advice: "Choose Life." "Abortion doesn't cure anger."

Be Informed. Be Pro-Life. Be Blessed.
