iVoterGuide: Removing Sanger’s Name Doesn’t Erase Planned Parenthood’s Bloody Present or Future

Abortion Provider’s Awkward Scramble Reminds Voters of the Importance of Choosing the Right Leaders the First Time

July 27, 2020

DALLAS, Texas — Planned Parenthood of Greater New York has decided to remove Margaret Sanger’s name from their building, but pro-life organizations say this is not enough.

For decades, the pro-life movement has been calling attention to the words and actions of Margaret Sanger. Sanger founded the organization that would become Planned Parenthood in 1921. She was a champion of eugenics, promoting the idea of limiting the reproduction of those considered mentally and physically defective.   For decades Planned Parenthood has given heroic status to Sanger for her achievements by granting their “highest honor” to individuals they recognize as showing “leadership, excellence, and outstanding contributions to the reproductive health and rights movement.” The pro-choice movement has been ignoring the connection between the theories of Margaret Sanger and the practice of abortion for decades, even criticizing the pro-life movement for claiming these ideas were racist.

iVoterGuide President Debbie Wuthnow says Planned Parenthood’s awkward scramble to expunge its founder’s name should remind voters of the importance of choosing the right leaders in the first place — because innocent lives depend on it.

“Those in the right-to-life movement have long known that the true motives of Planned Parenthood founder, Margaret Sanger, were to abort minorities and the disabled,” Wuthnow said. “Although it seems Planned Parenthood is coming to terms with their past, their present and future practices of ending innocent lives is no less terrifying. As voters go to the polls, they deserve to know where candidates stand not only on abortion, but on the funding of Planned Parenthood. iVoterGuide seeks to answer these questions, and more.”
