Denying Margaret Sanger’s embrace of eugenics “is a pathetic and desperate attempt to rewrite history”

By Dave Andrusko When I read interim Planned Parenthood President Alexis McGill Johnson letter to the editor of the Wall Street Journal, I immediately thought of the post her predecessor (the one whom PPFA sacked for insufficient abortion militancy) wrote that hewed closely to PPFA’s standard free-wheeling contempt for facts. As you may remember, earlier …

6.7 million dead babies–PPFA “just getting started”

By Dave Andrusko Okay, I appreciate the need to thread the needle–that is, for PPFA to acknowledge (in the most minimal imaginable fashion) some of the outrageous things its founder did and said without raining on Planned Parenthood’s parade in celebrating the 100th anniversary of its founding by the notorious Margaret Sanger. Thus the convoluted, …

Shining Light on the Dark Side of PPFA Founder Margaret Sanger

By Angela Franks Editor’s note. Elsewhere today we comment on the eerie juxtaposition of lightness and dark. Today is the 40th anniversary of the life-saving Hyde Amendment.

Shining Light on the Dark Side of PPFA Founder Margaret Sanger

By Angela Franks, Ph.D. Editor’s note. We’ve published 20+ posts on the shocking videos released by the Center for Medical Progress.

She says, “An entire generation has been taught by Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, that life can be discarded.  Pregnant and unmarried?  Have an abortion.  Too many children?  …

Despite best efforts of new book, the truth about PPFA Founder Margaret Sanger Grows Harder and Harder to Deny

By Dave Andrusko Six years ago, NRLC’s Director of Education Dr. Randall K.

Dr. Angela Franks Will Conduct Two Workshops on PPFA at National Right to Life 2011

By Dave Andrusko There is without question no topic that more intrigues/angers pro-lifers than Planned Parenthood. As the largest abortion provider in the world, PPFA not only takes the lives of more than 322,000 babies annually (according to the Guttmacher Institute), its underlining ethos continues to reflect its founder Margaret Sanger.
