Brad Mattes is the president and CEO of the Life Issues Institute, an organization dedicated to changing hearts and minds of millions of people through pro-life education.
According to Brad, Planned Parenthood was founded by Margaret Sanger who was a part of the eugenics movement. When WWII exposed the blatant inhumanity of the movement through Hitler, Planned Parenthood went underground.
Margaret Sanger is on record as having stated that the best thing that a poor family can do is to kill its young. She also referred to Blacks as ‘weeds’ and had a Negro project to keep them from multiplying.
Planned Parenthood continues as an extension of the legacy of Sanger. This involves not only killing pre-born infants, but often physically and emotionally maiming the mothers and fathers through abortion.
Did Sanger oppose abortion? Brad noted that there was a brochure produced as late as 1963 where Planned Parenthood is on record opposing abortion because it can hurt women and that abortion kills a baby that has begun whereas contraception keeps a life from starting.
Brad has heard that Planned Parenthood is so money driven that according to word from inside the organization they are under constant pressure to increase the abortion count. Staff has been known to be sent home early and not paid if they don’t keep the abortion count up.
Life Issues has done research on the issue of Planned Parenthood going into minority neighborhoods to establish their business. They took census track data and then drew a 2 mile radius around every Planned Parenthood surgical abortion facility. They found that 78% of these centers are located within predominantly Black or Latino neighborhoods. In fact, since 2005, Planned Parenthood has built 22 mega-abortion facilities across the country. 86% of them are in neighborhoods of Black or Latino women.
A large number of women of college age have abortions and this has not gone unnoticed by Planned Parenthood. Since 2005, 95% of their mega-abortion facilities are near colleges or women of color.
The women who are being targeted are blind to the fact that their population is being decimated due to abortion. Brad noted that when you look at the number of Black babies that die every year due to abortion, it’s greater than all the other causes of death combined.
Every 90 seconds, Planned Parenthood kills another baby and each day they get 1.5 million in tax dollars from U.S. citizens to carry out this agenda. They’ve claimed about 7 million lives so far compared to about 6 million by the Nazi holocaust. So what response does Planned Parenthood have? Jim quoted their CEO Cecile Richards who said, ‘We are part of the fabric of American life in all 50 states.’ She’s also said, ‘We’ve made incredible gains during our first century and we’re just getting started. We will build on our proud legacy and launch our second century with as much passion, courage, and conviction as our first.’ Then she said, ‘Our work is far from complete.’
How can anyone call abortion ‘women’s health care’ when the statistics make this look like ‘blood money’ that’s being made at the physical and emotional expense of American women? Find out more when you review this Crosstalk broadcast.
