Exposing the Dark Past of Planned Parenthood

By: Kristen Clark

I knew what Planned Parenthood was but had never been this close to one of their buildings before. I was standing twenty feet away from their front door and silently watching as several teen girls got out of a car.

One of the girls was wearing sweat pants which is a dead giveaway for why she was there that morning. She kept her head down as she and her friends quickly walked inside the building. My heart pounded fast and my hands began to sweat as I realized what was about to happen. The reality of abortion became more alive to me in that moment than ever before.

I had just watched a teenage girl walk inside Planned Parenthood to get an abortion.

I silently prayed that God would change her mind and that the little life inside of her would be spared.

Planned Parenthood isn’t a place I visit often, but I was there that day to stand in silent protest against abortion. I was with a small group of pro-lifers and we didn’t yell or make a scene… we just stood and prayed.

Being that close to an abortion facility and watching young women walk inside all day made my stomach sick. A righteous anger welled up inside of me that day and it has never left.

Prior to my first experience with Planned Parenthood, I didn’t have a lot of knowledge about the abortion industry. Yeah, I have always been pro-life…but the reality of what takes place 3,288 times a day didn’t sink in until I watched it happen.

If you are like I was, you kind of know that Planned Parenthood isn’t all that good…but you don’t know much else about the organization. I was under the impression that Planned Parenthood was a woman’s health care facility which also offered abortions as an option.

Wrong. Major wrong.

Planned Parenthood isn’t an innocent organization that accidentally got caught up in the abortion industry. They are the nation’s largest abortion providing business with a rich history rooted in racism, eugenics, and lies.

Don’t believe me? Check this out.

Jump back in history with me to the year 1921.

This is the year that a woman named Margaret Sanger founded the American Birth Control League (which later changed its name to Planned Parenthood). She, along with a group of liberal feminist women founded this organization out of fear for America’s affluent, educated elite (aka: rich white women). To have more money and time for themselves, these white women were choosing to have fewer children. As a result, they were being outnumbered by the poor and working-class people, and this scared them. (1)

Margaret Sanger came up with an evil scheme for how to solve this “problem.”

The solution?

Selective Birth control.

In her own autobiography, she admitted that her entire life’s purpose was to promote birth control. (2) This wasn’t birth control for all women though. It was selective birth control for the poor people and for specific races. She wrote, “The purpose in promoting birth control was to create a race of thoroughbreds. (3) More children from the fit, less from the unfit – that is the chief aim of birth control.” (4)

She also hated black people. Her ultimate aim and goal for birth control was to slowly do away with black people. She herself referred to them as “human weeds and reckless breeders…human beings who never should have been born.” (5)

Margaret strategically opened up birth control clinics in the areas of town wherever these “feeble minded and defective stocks bred unhindered.” (6)

To put it plainly, Margaret Sanger was a radical racist and extreme promoter of eugenics.

However, birth control was just the beginning for Margaret. What happens if a poor woman or black woman actually gets pregnant…then what? She had an evil solution for this problem too: abortion. She knew that the complete elimination of certain people groups and races would never be achieved without abortion.

In her book Woman and the New Race, Margaret asserted that, “The most merciful thing a large family can do to one of its infant members is to kill it.”

Margaret Sanger died in 1966, just seven years before her life dream became a reality. In the 1973 court battle between Roe v. Wade, abortion became legal for the first time in all 50 states of America.

Planned Parenthood is the direct result and product of Margaret Sanger’s life work and evil dreams.

She is their founder.

Now jump forward with me in history to present day America. Today, Planned Parenthood advertises to be a caring and loving organization that promotes the health of all women. In fact, their tag line is “Care. No Matter What.”

I guess this boils down to what your definition of “caring” actually is.

Planned Parenthood assists women in the murdering of their babies 3,288 times a day. Please explain to me how murdering innocent babies is “caring?” Out of 6,000 clinic visit records examined from a Texas Planned Parenthood clinic, only 3 were referred for adoption. (7)

Planned Parenthood is a billion dollar organization and 51 percent of their yearly clinical income – their only self-sustaining revenue source – comes from abortions.

Oh, and they’re still in the business of eugenics. Margaret Sanger would be proud of this statistic: In 2012, there were more black babies killed by abortion (31,328) in New York City than were born there (24,758), and the black children killed comprised 42.4% of the total number of abortions in the Big Apple. (8)

The most shocking thing about Planned Parenthood is their evil plan to encourage abortions at any cost.

Over the years they have strategically created explicit “sex education” material for children and students of all ages to “teach” them about safe sex.

A pro-abortionist stated, “the only avenue the International Planned Parenthood Federation and its allies could travel to win the battle for abortion on demand is through sex education.”

By exposing children and young teens to sexual information at a young age, these kids are way more likely to become sexually active, get pregnant, and run to Planned Parenthood for an abortion.

In fact, the president of Planned Parenthood stated, “We are not going to be an organization promoting celibacy or chastity.”

This is only the beginning of Planned Parenthood’s evil schemes to get as many pregnant teen girls through their doors as they can.

Why?

Because abortions for them equal money in the bank.

Over the past few years, a Pro-Life organization called LiveAction has done some incredible undercover work bringing to light some shocking dark secrets of Planned Parenthood. They went undercover into abortion clinics all across the U.S. pretending to be underage pregnant teen girls in need of information. They secretly filmed each one of their undercover missions.

The results are shocking.

Video after video Planned Parenthood workers tell these underage girls to lie about their age, lie about their boyfriend’s age, lie about working in the sex industry, lie about being a prostitute, lie to their parents, etc.

The abortion workers were telling these girls whatever they needed to say (illegal or not) in order to get them to have an abortion. Ummm… and that’s “caring?” (See videos here)

A former Planned Parenthood nurse told The Criterion newspaper that “she saw many women pressured into abortions they did not want, including minor girls.” (9)

I don’t know about you, but that makes my stomach hurt.

I could go on and on about the lies and scandals that have been uncovered on Planned Parenthood. As pro-lifer activist Lila Rose puts it, “Planned Parenthood is the single most evil organization in human history.” And I wholeheartedly agree with her. I hope you do to.

As Christian girls we cannot be ignorant or silent on our stance against Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry. We need to know the truth and we need to fight for it. We need to know the history of why these organizations were founded and what they truly stand for.

My hope is that this blog will spark a flame of righteous anger inside of you as it has me.

I hope you will continue to do more research on your own and figure out a way to get involved in the pro-life movement.

A great place to start is by signing this petition to get Planned Parenthood defunded by the government. Yes, your personal money is currently being used to fund Planned Parenthood.

Next, visit www.liveaction.org for some great information and resources about this subject.

Last, spend some time praying and asking God to end abortion in our country.

Pray for opportunities to get involved in your local city. It could be as simple as standing in front of an abortion clinic and praying.

In closing, we have to remember that our greatest enemy isn’t the abortion clinics themselves, but it’s satan.

“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places” (Ephesians 6:12).

Pray that God would convict the hearts of the people involved in the abortion industry.

Pray that they would be freed from their evil work and from the clutches of satan.

This is an intense topic and I would love to hear your comments, feedback, and insights on it.

What is your personal opinion on Planned Parenthood? Did this blog open your eyes to anything new?

Have you been personally involved in the pro-life movement in any way? If so, what have you done?

    Wow!!! This was an incredible article. Well done!! Thank you for enlightening us and reminding us of the battle we are in. We can’t stand silent any longer! Thank you for calling those that kill babies “Pro-abortionist” rather than “Pro-Choicers”….subtle terms that disguise the truth! Thanks again for boldly speaking the truth! Great job!

    • Marie, thank you for your comment and encouragement. Keep standing for the truth!

  • Jacqueline

    Wow, Kristen, I am praising the Lord for proclaiming truth through you! I have been thinking recently about the fight against abortion and the need to get involved more deeply. Here is yet another inspiration to do that. This article is very well written and researched. I am sure it took quite a bit of time, but it is so worth it! I am so grateful to both you and Bethany for all the work you do to speak into the lives of young ladies (including mine). May God richly bless your ministry and I will be praying for continued protection and guidance.

    • Thank you Jacqueline! We are so encouraged and blessed that you found this blog helpful and inspiring. Thanks for those encouraging words to us as well. 🙂 Keep fighting the battle!

  • Tara

    This is an amazing article! I just found your website and I will continue reading! Thank you for being bold and proclaiming the truth!!

  • Elisabeth

Thank you evere so much for lettting me know about this awful wicked thing!I will pray about it!

  • rachel

    Your 3% stat is debunked propaganda. Look into it.
    And I think that those videos prove that a lot of those women DON’T necessarily want abortions.
    I sympathize with many of your points, but is comfort, ease and freedom bought with the life of a child really worth having?

    • First Amendment

      Actually, even though many states force women to watch an ultrasound and inform them of other options, about 98% still want abortions. Yes, a lot of those women DO want abortions. And there is nothing wrong with that.

  • Leisha

    This is so sad:( Just what they do and all that. What actions would you suggest to do to help with this situation?

  • Dolly

    You know what’s sad is that most of these women looking for an abortion don’t even think about visiting a pregnancy clinic for other options.

    Thank you for this info, I had no idea. This is so sad.

    • First Amendment

      Why would they visit a pregnancy clinic if they don’t want to be pregnant? Food for thought.

  • First Amendment

    America was founded by white, male slaveowners, yet no one propounds that the United States is a racist institution. Margaret Sanger’s past does not influence the wonderful missions of Planned Parenthood, which does much more than just perform abortions.

    There is a great BuzzFeed article entitled “We Asked 17 People Why They Visited A Planned Parenthood” which details the many reasons women go to PP– birth control, medical checkups, counseling, etc.

  • First Amendment

    Thank you for this. I share your beliefs.

  • Jordy_Leigh

    Well I think the word choice – “Planned Parenthood” – is deceptive. They’ve manipulated the wording in a very sneaky way to make it sound like they advocate parenthood. More food for thought…

  • Cappy

    You are aware that most of Planned Parenthood’s services are with giving out sonograms, providing contraceptives, and helping young mothers start motherhood, right?

    • FOR COMMENT

      The post is about planned parenthood’s dark past…although they offer other services the bulk of their million dollar empire is from abortions–not to mention they sell babies body part.planned parenthood was/is genocide for blacks and the poor. Bill gates father also ran planned parenthood and we all know Bill is a cheerleader for vaccines-and depopulation.

      • Cappy

        Everything you just said has been proven false by multiple investigations. Fear mongering to fir your angle doesn’t help anyone; it makes it harder for those who need help to get it due to fear.

        • Ameera

          First of all I know I’m late to the party. But can you please give me info where it has been proven false. Because we all know that Sanders plans where to kill infant lives (she said it in her own book not me I have quotes) and to kill off the black race. She was a racist. And there is just no denying that

          • OrangeGirl

            I posted with sources for all of my claims, but the links caused the filter to pick me up for spamming. I’ll post my original comment below with the title of the articles if you want to research them.

            Umm, the above comment had nothing to do with Sanders. She said and did some terrible things, it’s true. But not everything she did was terrible.
            Planned Parenthood has done so much to help underprivileged women to prepare for motherhood. They don’t just do abortions, in fact, only 3% of their services are abortions. They provide s3x education, sonograms, STD testing, physicals, basic health checkups, and many other things.

            Planned Parenthood does not sell babies, it does not cover up s3x trafficking, nor does it profit from their abortions. They are a non-profit.

            PP has helped out my family a lot. When my sister was too poor to afford clinical care for a problematic pregnancy, Planned Parenthood was there. I know others who had to have an abortion due to a nonviable pregnancy, and while people like the writers of the blog would tell this friend of mine that she didn’t deserve to live due to the 4% chance that her baby would live, Planned Parenthood was there for her.

            How is a company that does so much good so hated by so many people?

            I can come up with more if you like.

  • Sydney

    Lila Rose is so awesome! Praise God that there are women like her who are a voice for the voiceless! I agree with Kristen-how can killing babies be caring? I mean, consider this. When does human life start? Nine months? Whenever the mom wants it too? Or, at conception?

  • Emma

    What a strong post. I agree that PP is against God. But I do not think that we should builted up hatred against them. The Bible says to love the enemy. I am not for anything that they do but we should rise up prayer not hatered.
