Planned Parenthood – the nation’s largest provider of abortions – says it is celebrating Black History Month.
The abortion business was founded by eugenicist Margaret Sanger, who said black people are an “inferior” race.

As TooManyAborted observes, Sanger launched The Negro Project in 1939 and worked to reduce the black population. Joining with elite and well-known African-Americans Mary McLeod Bethune, W.E.B. DuBois, and Rev. Adam Clayton Powell, Sr., the Negro Project was sold as a solution to poverty and high birth rates among the black community. At the same time Sanger promoted her theory of “eliminating the unfit,” she also condemned charitable organizations that she believed were elevating the very population that needed to be weeded out.
Sanger wrote in Pivot of Civilization:
Organized charity itself is the symptom of a malignant social disease…Instead of decreasing and aiming to eliminate the stocks [of people] that are most detrimental to the future of the race and the world, it tends to render them to a menacing degree dominant.
Janice Ponds – a member of the Coalition of African-American Pastors (CAAP) Women’s Ministry, tells Breitbart News Planned Parenthood founder Sanger “once stated that black people are a part of a spawning class who should have never been born; and are human weeds to be exterminated.”
“Now not only is the #1 killer of black Americans abortion, but Planned Parenthood is now selling the body parts of these precious black babies for monetary gain to buy what one official stated as ‘wanting her Lamborghini,’” Ponds asserts. “How can this not be viewed as a human atrocity?”

Planned Parenthood’s celebration of Black History Month comes as the abortion business is actively campaigning for Democratic primary candidate Hillary Clinton.
As The Federalist noted in 2014, Clinton sang the praises of Sanger in 2009.
“I admire Margaret Sanger enormously,” Clinton said at a Planned Parenthood event. “Her courage, her tenacity, her vision.”
“When I think about what [Sanger] did all those years ago in Brooklyn,” she added. “I am really in awe of her. And there are a lot of lessons we that can learn from her life and the cause she launched and fought for and sacrificed so greatly.”
Sanger’s organization that hoped to control the black population has blossomed into one in which abortion is king. Even though birth control and “sex education” are plentiful through Planned Parenthood and elsewhere, a significant disparity remains in poverty rates between blacks and whites, making it doubtful that “free” birth control or abortion is raising the economic levels of black women.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 40 percent of pregnancies among black women end in abortion. And in New York City – home of the headquarters of Planned Parenthood – more black babies are aborted than are born.
Embraced by the feminist movement – which advertises legalized abortion as the ultimate freedom for women and a “constitutional right” – Planned Parenthood has joined with other leftist causes such as the militant LGBT agenda – which also claims same-sex marriage as a “right.” By partnering with the Black Lives Matter movement – a cause founded by black women – Planned Parenthood may hope to further deny its racist, eugenicist foundation.
The Trust Black Women Partnership is a group that has joined in solidarity with Black Lives Matter and Planned Parenthood Federation of America to “develop a strong network of Black women’s organizations and individuals mobilized to defend our human right to make abortion and family planning decisions for ourselves.”
The group provides its mission statement:
We educate our communities, legislators and leaders of color about Reproductive Justice (RJ) issues from Black women’s perspectives. We also stand for the human right of every Black person, regardless of their gender identity or expression, to end a pregnancy, continue a pregnancy, build a family, and raise children with health, dignity, and freedom from violence. After five years of building power and organizing, we are now re-launching Trust Black Women, and we are stronger than ever.
The Reproductive Justice movement, created in 1994, the Trust Black Women Partnership, created in 2010, and the Black Lives Matter movement, created in 2012, were created because the lives of Black people were in peril. All were born out of a demand for the self-determination and liberation of Black people in this country. And all were born because of the leadership of Black women.
Ironically, the group states it is fighting “systemic racism” and “state-sanctioned violence,” but appears to ignore the disproportionate numbers of black babies aborted and the violence done to them.
Dr. Deborah Owens, who organizes the CAAP Women’s Ministry, says she is “appalled” an organization of black women is promoting the notion that “murdering babies is justified.”
“As women, the last thing we should be pushing is the abortion agenda,” Owens tells Breitbart News. “What about the lives of the unborn? Who speaks for the millions of children who are murdered via abortion each year in our nation? And it is all done in the name of human rights. Does the child have any rights?”
Owens observes the associations Trust Black Women has made with other leftist groups.
“What’s even more disturbing is the fact that these women are pushing an agenda that is pro-gay, pro-abortion and anti-family,” she asserts. “They have also aligned themselves with the Black Lives Matter Movement. While there is no debate that Black Lives do matter, but I ask is it only black lives that matter? And if so, then when does it matter? Should it not matter at conception?”
Dr. Alveda King – who is also director of African American Outreach of Priests for Life – suggests Trust Black Women’s financial backing will reveal why abortion is a main goal.
“Connect the dots and follow the money trail down the rabbit hole,” she advises. “Oh if they would only invest in life rather than aborting the dreams, civil rights and dignity of the babies in the womb. How can the dream survive if we murder our children? Reproductive genocide is more like it, and the blood of the wounded mothers and aborted babies is crying out for true justice.”
Catherine Davis, founder and president of The Restoration Project, tells Breitbart News that Trust Black Women was hatched to counter the facts presented in the “Black Children are an Endangered Species Billboard” campaign – one of the most forceful pro-life media campaigns of 2010.
“Trust Black Women was paid for through the coffers of Sister Song, Planned Parenthood’s primary transmitter of the 21st century Negro Project, that sought to portray black women as a monolithic tower of ignorance, unable to make an informed decision based on all the facts,” Davis explains. “They failed then and they are failing now in their sad attempt to latch on to the perceived success of Black Lives Matter.”
Pastor Ericka McCrutcheon asserts the Trust Black Women Partnership is in an “oxymoronic position.”
“To proclaim that ‘black lives matter’ and then seek to destroy black lives and that of the most innocent through abortion is ‘Reproductive Injustice,’” she asserts. “There is no way they can honestly be true in service to any woman while embracing such lies and hypocrisy, to be for life and for death at the same time.”
“The partnership between Black Lives Matter and True Black Women Partnership is just another evil tool to mislead and destroy black lives,” McCrutcheon concludes.
Davis equates the Trust Black Women partnership with other social evils the black community has faced.
“We survived slavery; we survived Jim Crow; we survived the political and educational systems that determined to keep us unlearned; we survived the welfare state that has sought to decimate black families,” she asserts. “Please know we will survive this latest population control antic and will thrive in the face of the oppression it presents.”
