ANALYSIS/OPINION:

In her Op-Ed column “The abortionist’s eye is on us” (Opinion, Monday), Alveda C. King provided empirical evidence that abortion as practiced today is primarily a racist activity. She pointed out that “blacks comprise about 13 percent of the population, yet undergo 37 percent of all abortions.” She also pointed out that “a majority, perhaps as many as 75 percent, of abortion clinics are in areas with high minority populations.” Finally, Ms. King mentioned that abortion as a racist practice is the legacy of the eugenics of “Margaret Sanger, the founder of an organization known today as Planned Parenthood,” which is the world’s largest aborter of blacks.

As Ms. King states, Ms. Sanger openly admitted that she wanted “more children from the fit, less from the unfit.” She made clear that the “unfit,” in her view, were blacks and poor whites. She also had no qualms about speaking to the Ku Klux Klan.

Planned Parenthood has not repudiated Ms. Sanger. In fact, its most prestigious award is in her name.

The proof of Planned Parenthood’s continued racism a la Ms. Sanger is its decades-long promotion of sex in predominantly black neighborhoods and of abortion when women become pregnant. It is obvious it is not helping blacks, but the organization makes a handsome profit practicing its disguised brand of racism and eugenics. Sadly, our taxes support this racism, with some $350 million in taxpayer funds going to Planned Parenthood in the last fiscal year alone. Taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood has added up to billions over the years.
