CINCINNATI, Ohio — In a recent article, Planned Parenthood President Alexis McGill Johnson denounced the organization’s founder, Margaret Sanger, for “Sanger’s association with white supremacist groups and eugenics.”
Response to the article has been heated, particularly from pro-life activists who see the article written by Johnson as a “fake reckoning” since the organization continues “to aggressively prey on black and brown communities with abortion.”
“Staying true to [the] founder’s vision is essential to an organization’s mission,” stated Patti Garibay, founder and executive director of American Heritage Girls (AHG, www.americanheritagegirls.org). Planned Parenthood has continued its founder’s vision of providing birth control and abortion. Today Planned Parenthood is located within walking distance in neighborhoods serving Blacks and Latinos. Often times a Planned Parenthood abortion mill is closer than a grocery store.
“Planned Parenthood, despite its recent meager attempt at disassociation with its racist and white supremacist founder, continues its founder’s vision of manipulating the human race with the eugenics mindset while destroying the lives of millions of women.”
American Heritage Girls was founded by a group of parents wanting a faith-based, scout-type character development program for their daughters in 1995. American Heritage Girls across the nation and the globe participate in badge programs, service projects, leadership opportunities, and outdoor experiences, all with an emphasis on Christian values and family involvement.
In addition to the biblically based parenting advice shared in the Raising Godly Girls blog and Raising Godly Girls radio features that are heard on 770 radio stations, American Heritage Girls provides a community experience in a Troop setting. Girls benefit from Christ-centered friendships and mentors to assist them in becoming Godly girls.
Today there are Troops in all 50 states and in 15 countries around the world through the Trailblazer Program. A variety of Christian denominations are also represented as Charter Organizations for Troops. There are thousands of volunteer members across the country helping girls to grow in their faith, cultivate a heart for service, enjoy the great outdoors, and have more fun than they can imagine.
