The words in the headline are not my own. They were proclaimed by Dr. Alveda King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., at a Black History Month event in Washington, D.C., this week. At the event, she noted her intent of rebuffing the modern-day claim that her uncle was an abortion-rights supporter.
In her speech, she observed that, while her uncle did receive an award from Planned Parenthood in 1966, the group then bore what she termed a "hidden agenda."
In fact, the dirty secret of Planned Parenthood is this: Its founder, a one-time nurse named Margaret Sanger, believed that America needed "to cut down on the rapid multiplication of the unfit and undesirable at home" through methods of eugenics. Merriam-Webster defines eugenics this way: "a science that deals with the improvement (as by control of human mating) of hereditary qualities of a race or breed."
Much evidence points to Sanger being a racist. To stop the "multiplication" of those she saw as unfit, Sanger sought to halt "medical and nursing facilities to slum mothers," as she wrote in her book, "The Pivot of Civilization." (Of course, we cannot depend on our so-called mainstream media to report on Sanger's shameful writings.)
