In a carefully and deviously crafted amendment by Sen. Barbara Mikulski to the health care reform bill, Planned Parenthood and its 295 clinics that perform abortions are included in the bill's definition of community health services. This classification gives Planned Parenthood a foothold in poorer communities that, in many large cities, are predominantly minority communities. This could begin the next Planned Parenthood war on black
The liberal agenda has had devastating consequences in the black community. Democrats have tried to trap entire segments of the black community into a cycle of dependency that is, at the very core, racist and has destroyed many black families. As a result we see a majority of mothers raising children with no father in the home, looking instead to token leaders like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton and organizations like the NAACP that have a vested interest in this oppression. Right at the center of this liberal agenda is the abortion issue.
Regardless of the position on abortion that one takes a study of the history of
Planned Parenthood was formed by Margaret Sanger (originally known as the American Birth Control League). Sanger was a proponent of negative eugenics which had as is primary tenet the prevention of reproduction by people who had genetic defects and undesirable traits. In other words, a follower of negative eugenics philosophy would make mandatory the sterilization of anyone who had a history in their family of birth defects.

“at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don't want to have too many of."
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said this of Sanger after receiving Planned Parenthood’s Margaret Sanger Award
“I admire Margaret Sanger enormously, her courage, her tenacity, her vision… when I think about what she did all those years ago in Brooklyn, taking on archetypes, taking on attitudes and accusations flowing from all directions, I am really in awe of her.”
