Planned Parenthood has been one of the driving forces to make it easier to get abortion-inducing drugs through the mail. But did you know that its founder, Margaret Sanger, had ulterior motives for abortion? Sanger believed whites were a superior race. In 1939, Sanger launched the Negro Project, which insidiously sought to eradicate blacks in the South. She advocated for “racial purity.” And in her book “The Pivot of Civilization” she called for the elimination of “human weeds” for “the cessation of charity, for the segregation of morons, misfits, and maladjusted,” and for the sterilization of “genetically inferior races.” According to the Guttmacher Institute, approximately 30 percent of all abortions are performed on black women, while they only make up 14 percent of the female population aged 15-44. Another 34 percent are performed on Hispanics and other minorities. This is no coincidence.
