Planned Parenthood marked its 96th anniversary on October 16, and Jim Sedlak of the American Life League noted that over the past 42 years the abortion giant has been responsible for the deaths of over six million pre-born babies, all the while collecting millions of dollars in federal funding. “In 2010, Planned Parenthood did 27 percent of all the abortions in the United States,” Sedlak pointed out. “It has ended the lives of over 6,000,000 human beings in its own facilities since 1970. And, during that same time, it collected over $6 billion in taxpayer money.
Recent research from Protecting Black Life, a project of Life Issues Institute, found that 79 percent of Planned Parenthood's abortion clinics are located in or within walking distance of black and Hispanic communities. “Minority communities are the number one targets of Planned Parenthood,” said the Rev. Arnold Culbreath, director of Protecting Black Life. “It’s no wonder abortion remains the leading cause of death among African-Americans, higher than all other causes combined. Getting this information to as many people as possible is not only critical, it’s a matter of life and death for countless babies and oft times even their mothers.”
Sedlak recalled that when Sanger opened Planned Parenthood's first “birth control” clinic in New York City on October 16, 1916, she promoted uninhibited sexual activity, worked to trim back large families, and promoted aggressive birth control and sterilization of those within society's “dysgenic groups” — which included certain racal and ethnic minorities. Sedlak said that “for 96 years, Planned Parenthood has been actively spreading these philosophies.”
While the abortion giant no longer makes public the demographic makeup of its abortion clients, in the 1990s “it revealed that 43 percent of its abortions were on blacks and other minorities — who only made up 22 percent of the population,” Sedlak said.
