Planned Parenthood said Children of the Poor are too costly

By Sarah Terzo

A fund-raising letter of Planned Parenthood committee of Pittsburgh:

“Have you ever stopped to consider how much the ‘unwanted’ children of poor and ignorant parents are costing you in the community in increased relief load, state medical and mental care, juvenile delinquency, and criminality?… There is a critical need for the expansion of this work [birth control] in American slums and other areas.”

Johanna Choen, Choice & Coercion: Birth Control, Sterilization, and Abortion in Public Health and Welfare (Chapel Hill: The University of North Carolina Press, 2005).

This is an old letter from before abortion was legal, but it shows the disregard Planned Parenthood had for minorities and the poor.
