What's Wrong With Planned Parenthood?:
Before we comment on this church's decision lets review the history, goals, and ultimate objectives of the Planned Parenthood organization. (their stand on abortion may be the least of their sins….)

  • Planned Parenthood was founded in 1916 by Margaret Sanger as America's first birth control clinic. All the founders of Planned Parenthood were known eugenicists who wanted to rid the world of the "undesirable element". This was based on race, education, wealth, and religious affiliation. It is no surprise or secret that the first clinic was in Harlem. (see Margaret Sanger's Eugenic Plan for Black Americans)

    A bit of Margaret Sanger: This is the "Plan For Peace" document that Margaret Sanger presented before the New Historical Society:
    1. to raise the level and increase the intelligence of the population.
    2. to increase the population slowly by keeping the birth rate at its present level of fifteen per thousand, decreasing the death rate below its present mark of 11 per thousand.
    3. to keep the doors of immigration closed to the entrance of certain aliens whose condition is known to be detrimental to the stamina of the race, such as feebleminded, idiots, morons, insane, syphilitic, epileptic, criminal, professional prostitutes, and others in this class barred by the immigration laws of 1924.
    4. to apply a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is already tainted, or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to offspring.
    5. to insure the country against future burdens of maintenance for numerous offspring as may be born of feebleminded parents, by pensioning all persons with transmissible disease who voluntarily consent to sterilization.
    6. to give certain dysgenic groups in our population their choice of segregation or sterilization.
    7. to apportion farm lands and homesteads for these segregated persons where they would be taught to work under competent instructors for the period of their entire lives.

    Other Margaret Sanger'isms:
    Margaret Sanger promoted racism ("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."), infanticide ("The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.") and eugenics ("Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race.")

    Planned Parenthood still continues in this mode today working largely in underprivileged minority neighbourhoods. It also continues it's outreach to schools.

    In our public schools it is nearly illegal to teach a biblical view of creation or human sexuality, but PP can come in and distribute condoms with literature that not only shows how to use it but encourages it's use. Planned Parenthood promotes sexual activity in almost all of it's literature. It rarely if ever lets these young people know that a condom fails more than 30% of the time. They tout a condom as an effective protection from AIDS, STD's, and pregnancy. Of course if you happen to get pregnant then abortion is a perfectly acceptable solution to that problem. (in 1991 in the US Planned Parenthood performed 129,000 abortions)(see Planned Parenthood. It's not what you think, A Plan For Peace, The History and Plans of Planned Parenthood, Why We Oppose Planned Parenthood, Planned Parenthood Exposed, )
