Well, well, well.
Leftists have finally caught up with the history of Planned Parenthood.
The name of Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, is set to be scrubbed from a high-volume Manhattan abortion center.
According to the New York Times, Planned Parenthood of Greater New York announced Tuesday Sanger’s name will be removed from its flagship Bleecker Street abortion center because of her “harmful connections to the eugenics movement.”
“The removal of Margaret Sanger’s name from our building is both a necessary and overdue step to reckon with our legacy and acknowledge Planned Parenthood’s contributions to historical reproductive harm within communities of color,” Karen Seltzer, the chair of the New York affiliate’s board, said in a statement.
So they’re going to distance themselves considerably from Sanger, who founded their organization and laid the ideological framework to justify the murder of millions of unborn babies, but continue to practice contemporary reproductive harm within communities of color?!
As LifeSiteNews explains, Sangers’ racist history and the problematic role that Planned Parenthood plays in minority communities has long been under scrutiny:
The pro-life movement has been pointing out for years that Sanger was a racist eugenicist whose goal was to use contraception and sterilization programs to reduce the population of races and ethnicities she deemed inferior.
Notably, a pro-life black woman told attendees at a Black Lives Matters rally that Planned Parenthood is the “number one killer of the black population” and asked: “Why don’t I see my brothers and my sisters outside Planned Parenthood?”
According to Students for Life Action’s “Strike Out Sanger” Campaign: “Seventy-nine percent of today’s Planned Parenthood facilities are located in minority and low-income areas; 20 million black babies have been aborted since the tragic Roe v. Wade decision; black babies in New York City are more likely to be aborted than born alive; and according to the CDC, nearly 36 percent of all abortions were committed on black babies despite the fact that African-Americans only make up 13 percent of the total population.”
Talk about empty virtue signaling. Planned Parenthood, a for-profit business, is just trying to cover the bases. They are not repentant at all of their long legacy of causing harm to minority communities or anyone else, for that matter. The least of all, the unborn babies that they dismember.
