Reproductive Racism, Unethical Business Practices…and Tax Exempt! (Mar-Apr08)

PLANNED PARENTHOOD DAY WAS APRIL 24: PP ACCUSED OF REPRODUCTIVE RACISM AND UNETHICAL BUSINESS PRACTICES. American Life League is working with Students for Life of America, as well as other national pro-life groups, to increase congressional support for defunding Planned Parenthood. On April 24, there was a silent protest in front of the PP in Washington, D.C., followed by a press conference at 11 a.m. with African-American leaders. Below is an excerpt from an e-mail blast that SFLA sent out last week:"Join SFLA on Thursday, April 24th to tell Congress that the Racism and Unethical Business Practices of Planned Parenthood should not be funded with tax-payer dollars… This is what Planned Parenthood has been up to: ** Planned Parenthood is currently under criminal investigation in KS for falsifying documents and performing illegal late-term abortions. ** In CA, a former Planned Parenthood employee has accused CA Planned Parenthood of defrauding taxpayers upwards of $180 million. ** A recent video of YouTube shows a Planned Parenthood Development Director “excited” at the possibility of taking money specifically earmarked to kill black children. ** The Alan Guttmacher Institute, along with the CDC, show that a huge majority of abortion businesses are located in minority neighborhood [sic] and some experts estimate the number at higher than 75%. ** Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest provider of abortions.

Black Pastors to Call on Parties to Reject Planned Parenthood Money/Native Americans targeted (6/08)

A coalition of black pastors plans to call on the Republican and Democratic parties to reject campaign spending from Planned Parenthood, claiming the abortion provider promotes a racist agenda. The pleas, to be made in a demonstration outside the Democratic and Republican National Committee headquarters in Washington, D.C., on Thursday, are the latest effort by the group to clamp down on Planned Parenthood, after an undercover inquiry by a college group revealed an alleged effort to target minority women for abortions. The pastors are amplifying their argument that abortion, which its members call genocide, is a civil rights matter. “We are very concerned that Planned Parenthood is targeting African American communities and African American babies,” said Alveda King, niece of Martin Luther King Jr. She and Day Gardner, of the National Black Pro-Life Union, are leading the coalition of more than 50 pastors, who represent churches and anti-abortion organizations. “Any candidate who continues … by accepting campaign contributions says that you’re not as concerned about civil rights for all people,” King told FOXNews.com. “It’s an anti-civil rights act to support Planned Parenthood.” In response, Planned Parenthood released a statement saying it “does not tolerate racism of any kind.” “For more than 90 years, Planned Parenthood has worked to address racial and economic bias in access to health care and ensure that all women receive care. We are committed to providing basic and preventative health services to women, men and teens, especially in underserved communities,” the group said. The women’s health care and contraception provider told FOX News in April that its role in black communities is greater because the...

Planned Parenthood ‘Day’ was 24 April: PP Accused of Reproductive Racism and Unethical Business Practices

India Will Pay Poor Women to Have Girls to Avoid Sex-Selection Abortions

To combat the ever-worsening gender ratio in India, government officials are unveiling a new plan to pay poor women and their families to avoid sex-selection abortions and infanticides. Authorities hope the payments will stop the estimated 500,000 deaths of girl babies from both practices. The cash payments will send approximately 15,500 rupees (or about $384 US) to families. Although the amount appears small by Western standards, it’s a huge sum of money to poor Indian families. The Indian government says it hopes as many as 100,000 girls will be saved from the deadly practices in the first year alone in the trial program, which begins in seven states. As additional incentive, girls who become 18 get will another 100,000 rupees ($2,500 US) if they have completed their education and have not yet been married. According to a London Guardian report, Renuka Chowdhury, the women and children development minister, talked with the media about the new program. “We will pay the money in stages and monitor how they are brought up,” she said. “We think this will force the families to look upon the girl as an asset rather than a liability and will certainly help us save the girl child.” Some detractors questioned what effect the plan would have in more wealthy areas of the Asian nation, where prosperous families can afford to pay black market prices for ultrasounds and secret abortions. “It is the urban middle classes who can also afford the ultrasound tests to determine the sex of the foetus,” anti-infanticide activist Sabu George told the Guardian. “That is really the problem. The poor are copying the...

Israeli Doctor Exposes Nazi Abortion Program Reveals Chilling Parallels with the Ideas of Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger

An Israeli doctor has recently published an account of the Nazi use of abortion, euthanasia, and sterilization to eliminate groups they deemed “inferior stock”, especially Jewish and Slavic people. Dr. Tessa Chelouche writes that “Abortion was used as a weapon of mass destruction in Eastern Europe,” where “it has been estimated that tens of thousands of Polish and Russian women were compelled to abort not because of health reasons, but because of Nazi dogma.” She goes on to quote Hitler’s 1942 policy statement on the application of abortion to Slavic people, which is chillingly similar to modern Planned Parenthood propaganda: “In view of the large families of the Slav native population, it could only suit us if girls and women there had as many abortions as possible. We are not interested in seeing the non-German population multiply…We must use every means to install in the population the idea that it is harmful to have several children, the expenses that they cause and the dangerous effect on woman’s health… It will be necessary to open special institutions for abortions and doctors must be able to help out there in case there is any question of this being a breach of their professional ethics.” Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, expressed a similar objective about eliminating US colored people in a letter she wrote only months after Hitler’s invasion of Poland: “We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we...

Prenatal Screening Not As Accurate As Once Thought

“Normal” Children Killed as “Defective”? Scientists conclude there is really no such thing as “normal” in genetic inheritance. New research has found that more genetic differences exist among people than previous research had indicated. In 2000 the international team of scientists working on the Human Genome project said that there was only a miniscule percentage of difference between people. At about the same time, genetic screening was introduced as a common feature of prenatal care and as part of artificial procreation in IVF facilities. The new research shows, however, that this screening is not as accurate as previously thought. In the new study, 270 volunteers from different countries were tested and the researchers found that the genetic continuance from parents to child is not as straightforward as previously thought. In fact, the conclusion seems to be that there is really no such thing as “normal” in genetic inheritance. This means that screens for genetic abnormality are unrealizable without a reliable standard of “normal.” The report, published in the journal Nature suggests that prenatal screening may have incorrectly diagnosed genetic abnormalities as defects. In the period since the growth of genetic screening, in both IVF and natural conception, fewer children are being allowed to live to birth because of suspected genetic defects such as Down’s syndrome. With abortion being available in many jurisdictions for any reason or no reason, a genetic test result with any kind of abnormality is often a death sentence for the child. The Globe and Mail quotes Steve Scherer, a senior scientist at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto and study co-author, “The genome is...

British Court Overturns Pro-Life Effort to Stop “Designer Babies”

England’s highest court ruled that the creation of so-called ‘designer babies’ to help find cures for diseases is lawful, despite concerns about the destruction of unborn children to meet those goals. The five Lord judges who decided the case ruled unanimously that tissue typing to create babies to help their siblings could be authorized by the Human Fertilization and Embryology Authority, Britain’s medical research agency. HFEA is allowing a London clinic to screen embryos created by in vitro fertilization (IVF) for genes that might lead to cancer. Pro-life groups criticized the decision and say the agency is trying to play God by killing human embryos that have a cancer gene. Critics note that there is a possibility that these unborn children would never develop cancer if they were permitted to be born. Josephine Quintavalle of the Comment on Reproductive Ethics, the group that brought the lawsuit, argued the creation of designer babies violated British law. “We are not thinking about curing the disease, but about eliminating the carrier. It is pretty shoddy medicine,” she said of the goals of the research. The Society for the Protection of Unborn Children has also been vocal in its opposition to so-called ‘designer babies’.
