I'm here ... Right now, we have three clinics in this city and I want
ten more. We currently have a small storefront office in central
Harlem, and it is my first priority to see if we can transform that

unfinished business, and I intend to finish it.

Planned Parenthood's 'Accomplishments.'
Planned Parenthood's love affair with Socialism has become more
than a harmless upper middle-class hobby and now borders on the
Wall Street Journal editorial, December 19, 1984.
It is impossible to say enough about or against Planned
Parenthood, undoubtedly the most dangerous anti-life organization in the
Operating behind the respectable facade of a public service agency,
it has expended more than $2,000,000,000 (two billion
dollars) of our tax dollars to accomplish the following;
• it commits more abortions per year (130,000+) and refer for
more abortions per year (100,000+) than any other organization in the
• it was and is the prime mover for the 'sexual
revolution' in this and many other countries;
• it has undercut parental rights to an unprecedented degree
through the courts, so that now a teenage girl may fornicate, get
birth control devices, and obtain unlimited free taxpayer-funded
abortions without her parents even knowing;
• it is extending U.S. 'contraceptive imperialism' throughout the
world, in more than 70 countries, frequently in direct contravention
to these countries' beliefs and traditions;
• it has proudly declared itself in the forefront for abortion
'rights,' while shrilly denouncing all who oppose them (even Mother
• it opposes any restrictions on third-trimester abortions, fetal
disposal, and any efforts to spare the baby any pain or suffering. For
example, PP of Southwestern Indiana fired 18-year Medical Director Dr.
Roger Newton when it learned of his support for a bill requiring
"humane disposal of fetal remains." Newton grumbled
"Unless you are willing to be absolutely pro-abortion, then
evidently you are not welcomed."
• it proposed making all abortions free (taxpayer funded), and
applauds the program of forced abortions in China; and
• it has even proposed a program of involuntary sterilization and
forced abortions for implementation in the United States!
The threat posed by Planned Parenthood has been clearly recognized by
clear thinkers for decades. Immediately following World War II, General
Henry C. Evans sounded the warning;
The [Planned Parenthood] movement is insidious because its authors
are generally respected citizens, leaders in their communities in
civil affairs. It is a danger because it advocates breaking the
Natural Law and Moral Law. Whenever in history a people have broken
such a law, their civilization has perished.
It is hard to convince the advocates of this modern form of race
suicide of the error of their ways. Logic does not touch them.
Statistics make no impression. These persons give little thought to
history or experience. Warnings not to tamper with nature are wasted.
They turn a deaf ear to the appeals of religious or moral or spiritual
They call themselves patriotic. Yet they see nothing wrong with a
cause that eventually decimates our beloved country. Our returning
soldiers, who risked their lives on foreign soil, have a right to
object to the suicide of our race, the inevitable result of any
further headway made by the Planned Parenthood Movement.
Planned Parenthood's Ultimate Goals.
Increasingly, Planned Parenthood is viewing radical feminists as
obstacles, not allies ... the clear thrust of these [Planned
Parenthood] policies is to provide contraception and sterilization
services, not to further women's control of their own reproduction,
but to halt the population growth of poor nations ... in the first
eight months of 1980, Planned Parenthood shipped 15 million packages
of contraceptive pills, 300,000 intra-uterine devices, and 2000
sterilization kits to other countries. That sounds like population
control, noted Cindy Pearson of the Feminist Women's Health Center ...
Planned Parenthood favors two methods of contraception above all
others: sterilization and use of the dangerous hormone-like drug
The above list of atrocities committed by Planned Parenthood could be
extended endlessly. The ultimate goal of the International Planned
Parenthood Federation, with a annual worldwide budget of more than
$1,000,000,000, is the reduction of God's gift of sexuality to a
mechanical tool of pleasure. PP hopes to separate God and morals totally
from this critical function, and would like to provide free
contraceptives, sterilization, and abortion for everyone in its brave,
sterile new world.
As Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger stated, "Our
objective is unlimited sexual gratification without the burden of
Chapters 65 through 68 provide information on Planned Parenthood's
history, including the views of its founder, Margaret Sanger; gives
statistics on its United States abortion activities, and lists many
quotes by Planned Parenthood spokesmen quotes of great use to pro-life
debaters, because they paint an accurate picture of PP's anti-life and
anti-God philosophy and goals.
