On Monday, de facto Democrat nominee for president Joe Biden gained the endorsement of the nation’s largest and most lucrative abortion-on-demand provider, Planned Parenthood. In the recent past Planned Parenthood has been credibly accused of selling parts of in vitro infants after they have been aborted and of misrepresenting themselves as a healthcare provider.

The president’s reelection team hit Biden in a statement, claiming he is “controlled by radical ideas” and saying that he would force taxpayers to “foot the bill” for abortions. “In an effort to conform to the far Left’s agenda, Biden is now calling for zero restrictions on abortion and wants to force taxpayers to foot the bill. Biden has also made promises to ‘codify Roe v. Wade,’ taking the issue out of the hands of our duly appointed Supreme Court justices… President Trump is the most pro-life President in history and has safeguarded the rights of the unborn – not only in America but abroad,” said the Trump campaign’s statement.

After receiving the endorsement from Planned Parenthood, Joe Biden promised to “expand access to quality, affordable health care for women” and “protect women’s constitutional right to choose.” But coercion, not choice, has been at the heart of the Planned Parenthood agenda since its inception.

The group was founded by eugenicist Margaret Sanger. Sanger regularly articulated the argument for birth control in terms of “racial betterment” and infanticide. “The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it,” said Sanger in the 1920s.

From Sanger’s “Birth Control and Racial Betterment” in 1919: “Before eugenists and others who are laboring for racial betterment can succeed, they must first clear the way for Birth Control. Like the advocates of Birth Control, the eugenists, for instance, are seeking to assist the race toward the elimination of the unfit [emphasis added].” The language is strikingly similar to that which the Third Reich used to rationalize the horror of the Holocaust.

From Margaret Sanger’s “The Eugenic Value of Birth Control Propaganda” in 1921: “Today eugenics is suggested by the most diverse minds as the most adequate and thorough avenue in the solution of racial, political and social problems [emphasis added].”

From her “The Pivot of Civilization” in 1922: “We are paying for, and even submitting to, the dictates of an ever-increasing, unceasingly spawning class of human beings who never should have been born at all.” From Sanger’s “A Plan for Peace” in 1932: “[The government should] give certain dysgenic groups in our population their choice of segregation or sterilization.” This was written the year before the Nazis came to power in Germany.

Later Sanger excused her own decision to speak to a women’s auxiliary of the Ku Klux Klan group by explaining, “to me any aroused group is a good group.” She was supported in this view and in her racial eugenics campaign by one of the most racist authors in America in the 1920s, the Klansman Lothrop Stoddard. He was a founding member of the Board of Directors of Sanger’s American Birth Control League. Thus, a Klansman served in the founding leadership of Sanger’s flagship organization at the same time Sanger was a major figure in Planned Parenthood.

Nevertheless, Joe Biden welcomed the endorsement of such a group: “Health care is a right that should not be dependent on race, gender, income, or zip code,” Biden said, echoing the public talking points of Planned Parenthood. “As president, I’m going to do everything in my power to expand access to quality, affordable health care for women, especially women of color. Together we’re going to reverse the global gag rule and domestic gag rule, restoring the Title X program. We will protect women’s constitutional right to choose. And I’m proud to stand with you on this fight.”

What Biden may or may not understand is that by emphasizing the expansion of abortion on demand for “women of color” he is merely, perhaps inadvertently, continuing on with the stated mission of Margaret Sanger.
