In response to news that Planned Parenthood will be removing Margaret Sanger’s name from their Manhattan abortion facility, SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser issued the following comment:
“Today’s action by Planned Parenthood, America’s largest abortion business and the largest population control organization in the world, is the first time in their 104-year history that they’ve acknowledged their racist roots. The next step for Planned Parenthood is recognizing that Margaret Sanger’s racist legacy continues today, as abortion continues to disproportionately impact minority communities, especially the black community. We call on Planned Parenthood to immediately publish its historical abortion data by race given indications they have skewed the placement of abortion facilities and actively target minority communities. Further, we call on Planned Parenthood to drop its fierce opposition to anti-discrimination laws that protect unborn children from being selected for abortion due to their race, sex, or disability.
“We further call on Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Hillary Clinton to disavow and return their Planned Parenthood Margaret Sanger awards immediately. We also call on the National Portrait Gallery to relocate Sanger’s bust from its Struggle for Freedom exhibit.
“The pro-life movement will continue to fight for the legal right to life of every unborn child — regardless of their ethnicity, gender, and disability – and stand ready to lovingly assist their parents, no matter the circumstances.”
