Planned Parenthood continues to fail when it comes to the real health of women and girls.

Pay no attention to the elitist population controller behind the curtain

Liberal strategist Kirsten Powers wrote a brilliant piece on Planned Parenthood last week. Although she seems to have lost her confidence in some parts of her argument, she has still pointed out some fascinating details–including the fact that Planned Parenthood, according to their own 990 tax filings (pg. 82), still considers itself a population control organization.

In the 990 form for non-profits, the non-profit must state its official organization purpose . Here is Planned Parenthood’s:

THE PURPOSE OF THE FEDERATION IS:
(A) TO PROVIDE LEADERSHIP:
– IN MAKING EFFECTIVE MEANS OF VOLUNTARY FERTILITY REGULATION, INCLUDING CONTRACEPTION, ABORTION, STERILIZATION, AND INFERTILITY SERVICES, AVAILABLE AND FULLY ACCESSIBLE TO ALL AS A CENTRAL ELEMENT TO REPRODUCTIVE HEALTHCARE:
– IN ACHIEVING, THROUGH INFORMED INDIVIDUAL CHOICE, A U.S. POPULATION OF STABLE SIZE IN AN OPTIMUM ENVIRONMENT;
– IN STIMULATING AND SPONSORING RELEVANT BIOMEDICAL, SOCIO-ECONOMIC, AND DEMOGRAPHIC RESEARCH;
– IN DEVELOPING APPROPRIATE INFORMATION, EDUCATION, AND TRAINING PROGRAMS.
(B) TO SUPPORT AND ASSIST EFFORTS TO ACHIEVE SIMILAR GOALS IN THE UNITED STATES AND THROUGHOUT THE WORLD.

There you have it. Planned Parenthood’s official mission is to make abortion, contraception, and sterilization a routine part of medical care so that the U.S. can achieve a “population of stable size.” Note the erroneous assumption that the current population is not stable, or at least, that reducing the population will bring stability. Oh, and they “support and assist efforts to achieve similar goals in the United States and throughout the world.”

“[W]e are paying for and even submitting to the dictates of an ever increasing, unceasingly spawning class of human beings who never should have been born at all,”

wrote Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger in her 1922 book Pivot of Civilization. Compare this statement with one made just a few months ago by current Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards:

[A]n investment in covering birth control actually in the long run is a huge cost savings because women don’t have children that they weren’t planning on having and all the sort of attendant cost for unplanned pregnancy.

Margaret Sanger was an avid eugenicist who wanted to control the fertility of people she and her fellow travelers deemed “unfit”–which was typically code for African-Americans, as Mark Crutcher documents in Maafa 21. Cecile Richards, current Planned Parenthood CEO, praised Margaret Sanger as recently as today in an op-ed.

Pay no attention to the eugenicist behind the curtain.

    Excellent thanks David. Shows PP to be an expensively white-washed farce.

  • FinalEcho

    Planned Parenthood is corrupt!? . . . what else is new? ;)

  • beautifulsister

    Wow it's crazy how much abortion PP is responsible for. I read 3/4 of women who have abortions say it's because they can't afford the pregnancy. Let's make sure we're supporting all those poor moms so they don't feel like abortion is their only option.

    The same people proposing cuts to Planned Parenthood (which is GOOD) are proposing cuts to programs that help poor families (which is BAD). They're trying to cut $42 billion from things like supplemental nutrition, after school programs, low income housing, and community health centers. But they're trying to let the richest 2% of Americans KEEP $42 billion in tax cuts.

    Please contact your representatives and tell them you're pro-life all the way. Tell them you want your tax dollars to go to helping poor families raise their babies, NOT to the richest 2% and NOT to Planned Parenthood.

    ALL women should be able to have babies, not just the rich women. Right now, a record number of children are falling into poverty and homelessness due to the recent recession. Let's be pro-life inside and outside the womb. Please write to your representatives about this issue, as well as being active in stopping Planned Parenthood.

      I am a little frustrated with a single individual relaying the exact same argument across these blogs but posting with different accounts. Let's knock it off and, at least, be forthright and honest about who you are. Trying to fool people into thinking multiple people are making this point (using the exact same words and arguments) is not helping your credibility at all.

  • Abortionismurder

    Robnicsea – could you possibly be ANY more picky??

    Beautifulsister – While I may not agree with you 100%, I think everyone knows there are a lot of people who use different “names” on different sites… Big deal…

    • robnicsea

      So it is "picky" to ask people to avoid breaking the 8th Commandment? Because one person, using multiple identities, to attempt to make a position appear more popular than it is, happens to be lying. This person doesn't use different names on different sites, he/she uses multiple names on THIS site. But I will keep in mind that you have no trouble with dishonesty, but then I also assume you are most likely "beautifulsister" et al.

      • ok_go

        what's the 8th commandment? not everyone who is pro-life is christian….

        • robnicsea

          You shall not lie.

          • ok_go

            i mean it's just odd to say you expect people to avoid breaking the 8th commandment when not everyone here is christian. not a big deal though, whatever.

          • robnicsea

            So non-Christians have a free pass to lie, steal, commit adultery, dishonor their parents, act enviously, and kill all the people they want? My experience has been even the vast majority of non-Christians are familiar with the Ten Commandments and the rest know how to use Google.

          • ok_go

            that's not what i am saying at all…. are u serious? obviously killing people is wrong in all instances, because it's against the law, not because it's against the 10 commandments. and stealing is wrong b/c it's against the law, not because it's against the 10 commandments. as for the other things…. well it would be nice if people didn't lie or dishonor their parents, but i don't see what gives you the right to tell them they can't do that.

            for instance, some people don't have a problem with committing adultery. i would never do it myself and personally i think it's wrong. but i know there are people out there who have open relationships and that works for them. and i don't think we have any right to tell them how to live, unless it's harming others. isn't that the whole pro-life argument? you don't tell someone else how to live, until it's physically harming someone else's life.

            i don't know why we're even arguing about this. all i'm saying is sometimes people get offended if you try to say they should follow the rules of your religion if they're of a different religion. for instance it's a basic tenet of my religion that it's sinful to eat meat. but i don't go around pushing that rule on other people and expecting people to live up to it, just because they can find out about it on google.

            "stealing is wrong b/c it's against the law"

            I disagree. You are saying that something is wrong because it is illegal. The law does not decide what is moral, rather it reflects. There are many atrocities that were legal in Hitler's Germany. Were those action's right because they were legal?

            If there was a law that said murder was legal, would that make it right? No. The law is not he basis of what is right.

          • robnicsea

            You took my response right out of my mouth. Or at least from the tips of my fingers.

          • ok_go

            right… but where does the law come from? not christianity. in hitler's germany, the law came from hitler. in america, the law comes from a democratic vote over what rules will be beneficial to society at large. something is wrong when society agrees it's not going to benefit the group and writes it into law. hence we've decided murder is wrong and made it a law.

            and if you want to go even further than that, and ask how we decide something is wrong so we can make a law about it? the answer is in science: the mechanism of natural selection dictates that we act in such a way that leads to the betterment of ourselves as a community and as individuals. so we've developed a moral sense through natural selection that enables us to distinguish actions as wrong that are going to be dangerous to our stability as a species and as individuals.

            if you want to take your own personal morals from the bible, i have absolutely no problem with that. but please don't tell me that the bible decides what's right and wrong, because that's not my truth and that's not my reality.

  • dezgyrl

    I want PP defunded along with all other abortion clinics. But we NEED our WIC, our Birthchoice, and Outreach Centers.

    • livewell8

      Yes we do!

    • ok_go

      agreed! we need to fund these things……. i hate that the pro-life side is lumped in with the 'conservative' agenda to de-fund all this stuff. :( maybe we should be doing something about this
