Planned Parenthood (Finally) Rejects Founder Margaret Sanger Over Racism

'We will no longer make excuses or apologize for [her] actions...'

The Planned Parenthood Federation, renowned abortion provider, has attempted to disavow founder Margaret Sanger due to her racism, Fox News reported.

In light of a recently published New York Times op-ed, which addressed Sanger’s racist and white supremacist aims, the abortion provider finally decided to “cancel” its old hero.

“We will no longer make excuses or apologize for Margaret Sanger’s actions,” said Planned Parenthood CEO Alexis McGill Johnson.

Nevertheless, Johnson would not admit that Planned Parenthood might still be a racist organization, despite the fact that the abortion rate for black women is nearly three times that of white women.

Pro-life advocates criticized Johnson’s response, noting Planned Parenthood’s effect on blacks and Hispanics in the United States.

“For me, this was kind of like changing the name of Auschwitz,” said Roland Warren, the CEO of Care Net, an operate of pro-life crisis pregnancy centers.

Johnson wrote that the organization must make Sanger’s influence less prominent in the future.

“[W]e can’t simply call her racist, scrub her from our history, and move on,” Johnson said. “We must examine how we have perpetuated her harms over the last century — as an organization, an institution, and as individuals.”

Despite its long history rooted in racism, eugenics, and white supremacy, Planned Parenthood refused to allow its activities to be compared to the genocide that it is.

According to Nia Martin-Robinson, Planned Parenthood’s director of black leadership, “Black women are free to make our own decisions about our bodies and pregnancies, and want and deserve to have access to the best medical care available.”

“Any insinuation that abortion is black genocide is offensive and infantilizing. The real threat to black communities’ safety, health, and lives stems from lack of access to quality, affordable health care, police violence and the criminalization of reproductive health care by anti-abortion opposition,” she added.
