Ok the founder was full of shit, but then again this is now 2017 & PP is TODAY doing their best to provide the help anyone need!

Did you read all the way through about the full context of what she was saying? To repeat the TL;DR: 

TL;DR: The full quote states that Planned Parenthood wanted to hire Black doctors in order to make their Black patients feel safer and respected. It also states that Planned Parenthood wanted to work with Black ministers, and encourage the ministers to tell others that Planned Parenthood was a safe clinic for Black patients.

The partial quote is circulated without its context in an attempt to demonise Margaret Sanger and to delegitimise Planned Parenthood’s helpful work.

Reblogging to spread the word, cause evidence shows that Autism $peaks are classic horror movie villains.

Reblogging because I’ve always wondered who to support instead of AS.

To every friend of mine who reblogs this, thank you. It means I can trust you. ❤

It’s not too late for you to attend a townhall (or organize one)! Pointers from Organizing For Action:

Our three big takeaways:

  • Ask a pointed, yet respectful, question for your MOC (member of congress). Focus on one issue (health care), fuse with your personal story, and get a commitment from your member of Congress.
  • Execute your town hall with the biggest splash. Get there early; make sure your group is spread out; and don’t wear partisan buttons or bring signs.
  • Use digital tools to amplify your work. As we like to say, “pics or it didn’t happen.” The goal of using social networks during recess is to catch eyes – those of our friends and family, press, and member of Congress. Help us help you do that by taking pictures and tweeting them out using the hashtags #CareNotChaos and #OFAction.

You can review the entire online training by downloading a pdf of the powerpoint. If your member of Congress is not holding a town hall be sure to check out the Congressional Recess toolkit which includes best practices and sample agenda for requesting an office visit with your elected official.

Below are are some resources, tools, and next steps you can take as you prepare your town halls and visits with your members of Congress:

  • Publicize your events on social media using the hashtags #CareNotChaos and #OFAction.
  • Lastly, don’t forget to let us know about your events! Send pictures, videos, and an overview by using our report back form.

All of you out there supporting planned parenthood should really remember what the woman who founded them said…. just saying. Do not stand with PP

Oh wow, you guys are still trying desperately trying to paint Sanger as a racist huh? Okay, if you’re gonna flat out lie like this you can at least try not to be lazy about it.

You’ve given no context to this quote and conveniently left of the first half of it. The sentence in it’s entirety is “
“We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population.”

I know you manipulated it that way because you wanted to make Sanger seem as evil as possible, and also because literally the only thing pro lifers know how to do is lie, but admittedly the full sentence by itself looks damning enough. I think you know this, which is why you provided no context. If you had, your entire argument would have fallen apart. Here are Sangers words with context;

“It seems to me from my experience where I have been in
North Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee and Texas, that while the colored
Negroes have great respect for white doctors they can get closer to
their own members and more or less lay their cards on the table which
means their ignorance, superstitions and doubts. They do not do this
with the white people and if we can train the Negro doctor at the Clinic
he can go among them with enthusiasm and with knowledge, which, I
believe, will have far-reaching results among the colored people. His
work in my opinion should be entirely with the Negro profession and the
nurses, hospital, social workers, as well as the County’s white doctors.
His success will depend upon his personality and his training by us.

The minister’s work is also important and also he should be trained,
perhaps by the Federation as to our ideals and the goal that we hope to
reach. We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the
Negro population and the minister is the man who can straighten out that
idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”

The article I linked goes into better detail about Sanger, the so called “Negro project”, and the lies spread about her by the pro life movement. I encourage you to read it the next time you feel like spreading lazy, manipulative propaganda bullshit like this.

TL;DR: The full quote states that Planned Parenthood wanted to hire Black doctors in order to make their Black patients feel safer and respected. It also states that Planned Parenthood wanted to work with Black ministers, and encourage the ministers to tell others that Planned Parenthood was a safe clinic for Black patients.

In other words, she didn’t want this exact lie to start circulating

Reblogging not just to spread this out there but so that I have it on hand the next time someone tries to feed me this crap, I can provide them the facts.
