Jennifer Lawrence, Lena Dunham And Other Celebs Praise Margaret Sanger And Downplay Racist Beginning Of Planned Parenthood
The Planned Parenthood promotion ghouls are at it again. On Tuesday, pack-leader Lena Dunham and company--including Hillary Clinton-backers Jennifer Lawrence, Meryl Streep, America Ferrera, Constance Wu, and Mindy Kaling--commemorated the abortion mill responsible for over 7 million abortions to date in a sick animated video worshiping founder Margaret Sanger, who just so happened to be a racist eugenicist who longed to "exterminate the Negro population."
The animated short film produced by Dunham is called 100 years, in honor of Planned Parenthood's 100-year tradition of baby dismemberment, a true achievement.
"This film reminds us of the tremendous progress that's been made for women's health and rights just days before the new president is inaugurated — and at a moment when extreme politicians are trying to defund and shut down Planned Parenthood," describes Lenny Letter, Lena Dunham's newsletter.
Earlier this month, House Speaker Paul Ryan announced plans to defund the lucrative, scandal-ridden abortion warehouse in legislation seeking to dismantle disastrous Obamacare. Feminists have been losing their minds ever since, this grotesque video just the latest example.
After The Mindy Project star Mindy Kaling describes Sanger as a brave freedom fighter, self-styled sexual predator Dunham enters to briefly mention the Planned Parenthood founder's connection to eugenics.
"Margaret worked with civil rights leaders, immigrant women, and black communities, but also aligned herself with eugenicists. Ugh. It doesn't seem to makes sense," Dunham deceptively suggests, "but way back in the early twentieth century, eugenics was an immensely popular social movement, one with the kind of widespread legitimacy Margaret craved for her own birth control campaign."
Dunham continues: "Let's make something clear, racism and ableism do not have a place at Planned Parenthood and sure as hell don't represent the organization's commitment to equality. While there’s not question Margaret left behind a conflicting legacy, there's no question she's a champion of progress."
Where to begin. Dunham suggests that Sanger only outwardly aligned with eugenicists to yield more power for her allegedly good cause. This is false. Although Sanger was open about her quest to sterilize the "feeble-minded," she also tried to keep her most despicable views underground. Take this portion of the 1939 letter Sanger penned to Clarence Gable; “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," wrote Sanger.
Dunham also argues that "racism and ableism do not have a place at Planned Parenthood" today. This is also false. Sanger's racist roots have left a legacy she'd be proud of: an estimated 79 percentof all Planned Parenthood abortion clinics are located near black or Hispanic neighborhoods. Further, the organization has been rocked by a gendercide scandal as it is currently in a legal battle with the state of Indiana fighting to overturn legislation that bars abortionists from performing an abortion based upon disability, such as Down Syndrome, or gender.
And lastly, it is so odd that Dunham and company wish to grant Sanger a pass for all of her troubling racism because of the supposed "good" she's done when the left endlessly curses our Founding Fathers wholesale for some owning slaves. Our Founding Fathers actually worked toward freedom, not for the sterilization for those they deemed unfit.
To be clear, Sanger was a vile eugenicist who would be proud of Planned Parenthood today. To see Hollywood elites praise the founder as some sort of freedom fighter is utterly disturbing.
