In light of Planned Parenthood’s roots in racism and eugenics, it could not be more ironic for the organization to have had a black president speak at its national conference this year. In April, President Obama said, “The fact is, after decades of progress, there’s still those who want to turn back the clock to policies more suited to the 1950s than the 21st century. And they’ve been involved in an orchestrated and historic effort to roll back basic rights when it comes to women’s health.”
To what policies could he be referring? The ones of Planned Parenthood’s founder, who wanted to “exterminate the negro population”?
