This was not the article I was going to write today, however, when I opened my e-mail this morning, I received word from “Operation Rescue” that the two heroes who recorded the undercover Planned Parenthood videos, were indicted Tuesday, on charges of violating the federal law against buying human organs.  According to the “Center for Medical Process” (CMP).

CMP Statement on Harris County Announcement

The Center for Medical Progress uses the same undercover techniques that investigative journalists have used for decades in exercising our First Amendment rights to freedom of speech and of the press, and follows all applicable laws. We respect the processes of the Harris County District Attorney, and note that buying fetal tissue requires a seller as well. Planned Parenthood still cannot deny the admissions from their leadership about fetal organ sales captured on video for all the world to see.

As I understand the verdict, these two people now face serious prison time.  On the other hand, Planned Parenthood is clear of all charges.  In an interview, Dawn Laguens Executive V.P. of Planned Parenthood, on CNN Tuesday morning said:

… found Planned Parenthood did nothing wrong, and that’s consistent with, of course, our ninety-nine year history as a high quality, well-known, women’s health provider.

Margaret Sanger

What I find absolutely astonishing about this quote, is the reference to their history.  I expect them to claim innocence, but if you do your research you will find a more nefarious history behind Planned Parenthood than simply as an abortion clinic.  To start let’s look at its founder, Margaret Sanger.  If you leave your research to Wikipedia, you may walk away thinking Margaret Sanger was a saint merely looking out for women’s health.  However, I’m going to use her own words and a look at who she associated with in order to paint a different picture.  This will not be a chronological look at the life of Margaret Sanger.  That information is available in numerous location.

In writing about her character, Daniel Flynn said:

“She was a serial adulterer. Among the scores who shared her bed were some of the most famous men of her time, including novelist H. G. Wells and sex researcher Havelock Ellis. As she cheated on her husband of the moment with not-so-secret lovers, she cheated on these paramours with still other beaus. These encounters, biographer Ellen Chesler suggests, were limited neither to members of the opposite sex nor to two participants.”  Daniel J. Flynn, Intellectual Morons: How Ideology Makes Smart People Fall for Stupid Ideas (2004), Chapter 8.

Unless otherwise noted, quotes by Margaret Sanger come from her various writings and speeches, primarily “What Every Girl should know”.

George Bernard Shaw and H. G. Wells were not only famous but they and others with whom she associated were prominent Fabian Socialists.  While in England she also formed contacts and joined in with a group of neo-Malthusians, who helped her to refine her socioeconomic justifications for birth control, primarily with concern of over-population.  If your familiar with Keynesian economics you might be interested to know that he includes neo-Malthusian principles in his “Economic Consequences of the Peace”.  Meanwhile, in addition to a husband, she left three children back in the Untied States when she fled to England to escape jail time for felony charges.  Her daughter was ill at the time.


In her own words, here is what Margaret Sanger says about the subject:

Birth Control does not mean contraception indiscriminately practised. It means the release and cultivation of the better elements in our society, and the gradual suppression, elimination and eventual extinction, of defective stocks–those human weeds which threaten the blooming of the finest flowers of American civilization.

If the birth rate of the “fit” is decreasing, and the birth rate of the “unfit” is increasing, will not the latter soon dominate?  Here is one of the great problems America must face and solve.  Is Birth Control an immoral, unnatural practice which is driving this country to destruction, as our enemies assert, or is it an avenue of racial salvation? How can education in Birth Control be brought to those who need it most? These questions I shall seek to answer in my next article.

Has it never occurred to our present charitable and relief agencies that they are really not relieving our social problems, but are aggravating them? What have our government agencies really done to conserve the best in human kind? In animal industry the poor stock is not allowed to breed; in gardens the weeds are kept down. The Government sends all kinds of literature through its many departments to inform farmers and livestock breeders as to how they can improve produce–by nurturing the good and eliminating the bad stock.  But when it comes to human beings these same agencies prefer to patch and tinker rather than to prevent or eliminate. They are dominated by the fear of religious intolerance, with its dogmatic cruelty. It is this same intolerance (and let us be frank about it) that prevents all discussion at these National Conferences of the one thing which would help most in human conservation–birth control.

One of Margaret’s lovers while in England was non other than renown playwright and Fabian Socialists George Bernard Shaw, who on the subject of Eugenics said:

“ I don’t want to punish anybody, but there are an extraordinary number of people who I might want to kill…I think it would be a good thing to make everybody come before a properly appointed board just as he might come before the income tax commissioner and say every 5 years or every 7 years…just put them there and say , ‘Sir or madam will you be kind enough to justify your existence…if you’re not producing as much as you consume or perhaps a little bit more then clearly we cannot use the big organization of our society for the purpose of keeping you alive. Because your life does not benefit us and it can’t be of very much use to yourself.’

Margaret Sanger, and the American Eugenics Society, also promoted the idea of a board.  George Bernard Shaw was a contributor to Sanger’s “Birth Control Review”.  In an endorsement of Sanger, he wrote:

We are up against an overpopulation problem created by Capitalism…Socialists say quite truly that Socialism can get rid of it…But it cannot wait for Socialism…

Shaw also wrote:

“ I appeal to the chemists to discover a humane gas that will kill instantly and painlessly. In short- a gentlemanly gas deadly by all means, but humane, not cruel.”

This philosophy would later be adopted by Nazi Germany.


Margaret Sanger is accused of creating Planned Parenthood for the final eradication of the black race.  Wikipedia implies that this claim is wrong, I will place the offending quotes and leave it to the reader to come to their own conclusions:

“In all fish and reptiles where there is no great brain development, there is also no conscious sexual control. The lower down in the scale of human development we go the less sexual control we find. It is said that the aboriginal Australian, the lowest known species of the human family, just a step higher than the chimpanzee in brain development, has so little sexual control that police authority alone prevents him from obtaining sexual satisfaction on the streets.”

Consider the above statement, inline with this next statement about visiting the women’s auxiliary of the Ku Klux Klan:

I accepted an invitation to talk to the women’s branch of the Ku Klux Klan…I saw through the door dim figures parading with banners and illuminated crosses…I was escorted to the platform, was introduced, and began to speak…In the end, through simple illustrations I believed I had accomplished my purpose. A dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered… Margaret Sanger, An Autobiography.


the ministers work is also important…offering to train him in their ideals because “we do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members

Too Many has a more detailed analysis of this topic.

Planned Parenthood

Margaret’s efforts on Birth Control and the American Birth Control League, eventually evolved into Planned Parenthood.  In addition to Shaw, one of its earliest supporters was John D. Rockefeller Jr. (prominent member of the Council on Foreign Relations – A U.S. equal to the Fabian Socialists), and his family, which continued to make donations to Margaret Sanger’s causes.  John D. Rockefeller was also a supporter of Eugenics, concurrently  funding both Margaret Sanger and Eugen Fischer, whose works at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute, were responsible for the Nazi scientific theories that led to the death of millions of Jews, black, gypsies, communists, handicap, and others considered interior.

We often hear about how Planned Parenthood is a charity for women’s health, but consider Margret’s own words on what she thought of charities:

“Organized charity itself is the symptom of a malignant social disease…Instead of decreasing and aiming to eliminate the stocks [of people] that are most detrimental to the future of the race and the world, it tends to render them to a menacing degree dominant.”— Margaret Sanger, Pivot of Civilization, Chapter V, “Cruelty of Charity”

According to, speaking of Planned Parenthood:

When overt eugenics programs became outlawed, its goals and ideology remained thoroughly intact and devastatingly effective through the policy of Birth Control and the legalization of abortion.  Eugenicists merely changed the language, speaking in euphemisms. Today, abortion is a billion dollar industry that escapes any mainstream scrutiny as it pawns off birth control and the deliberate killing of unborn children as the false resolve to poverty. It exploits the mythology of global overpopulation, the narcissism of economic convenience and the false liberty of total sexual liberation.

number on killer

All life matters

I would add Baal worship to that list.  Want to talk about black lives matter.  Of all 285,500 estimated annual deaths combined of all other causes, it’s abortions and it’s 363,700 deaths that tops the list as the number one killer in the black community.

Apparently next year will mark Planned Parenthood’s 100th birthday.  In the last five years alone, Planned Parenthood has performed 1,642,227 Abortions, according to their own report. Here are some additional statics from

  • Planned Parenthood has slaughtered over 4 MILLION preborn babies.
  • Planned Parenthood kills 5,871 innocent human beings every week.
  • 1 out of every 4 abortions is committed in a Planned Parenthood facility.
  • Planned Parenthood calls abortion “reproductive rights,” but no one has the right to kill a child.
  • Planned Parenthood collected $349.6 million in government grants and contracts in 2008, and at the end of the year had $85 million in profits.

In 2009, Planned Parenthood ran 817 Abortion Clinics.

But back to what started this article.  The evidence available indicates that Planned Parenthood has been illegally selling aborted baby tissue.  And yet, a grand jury is indicting those who exposed this evil and letting Planned Parenthood go free, despite the video evidence.  In cases like this, my normal disposition is to accept the verdict, however, given the history of Planned Parenthood especially in light of why it seems to have been created, I can’t help but feel something else is going on here.  I guess time will tell, and hopefully an appeal, will show what is really going on.

Update 1/29:

Governor Matt Bevin of Louisville today announced that Planned Parenthood Is Illegally Performing Abortions Without a License in his state.  Read more here.  You can also read it in his own words below.
