Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s acceptance of Planned Parenthood’s endorsement of her 2016 campaign has highlighted her adoration of the abortion giant’s controversial founder Margaret Sanger, to whom she stands “in awe.”
Despite the proximity to Planned Parenthood’s selling of baby body parts scandal last year, Clinton has intensified her support for so-called “women’s reproductive rights.”
Established by Sanger nearly 100 years ago, Planned Parenthood is looking to Clinton to keep its legacy going into another century, as its president, Cecile Richards, said last week that “everything Planned Parenthood has believed in and fought for over the past 100 years is on the ballot.” Richards and other abortion activists regard Clinton as their truest advocate and believer to fight for them — considering her to be the embodiment of everything they represent on the November ballot. Planned Parenthood’s endorsement of Clinton in the presidential primary was an unprecedented move by the world’s largest abortion provider — the first time in its history that its endorsed a candidate in a primary.
Clinton’s seemingly unconditional advocacy of Planned Parenthood has been witnessed for years, such as when she served as President Barack Obama’s chief foreign diplomat several years ago.
“Fittingly, in 2009, Clinton proudly accepted Planned Parenthood’s self-described ‘highest honor,’ its coveted Sanger Award,” The Center for Vision and Values Executive Director Paul Kengor pointed out. “She blushed and gushed that she was ‘in awe of’ the racial eugenicist.”
Kengor asserts that Clinton’s allegiance to Planned Parenthood is just as strong as when she served with the president.
“The then-secretary of state accepted her award at Planned Parenthood Federation of America Awards Gala, just after completing a visit to Mexico’s Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe, the patroness of the pro-life movement,” the pro-life professor at Grove City College continued. “To Hillary, Margaret Sanger is the patroness of the women’s movement. She will defend Saint Margaret’s organization like a knight guarding the Holy Grail. The fealty is mutual; thus the group’s historic endorsement of Clinton.”
More cause for concern?
The conservative author says Clinton is about as far Left as one can get when it comes to abortion.
“As someone who wrote an entire book on Hillary Clinton, and has long followed her very carefully, especially on matters of her faith and abortion beliefs, I can say without equivocation that she is not mildly or even strongly pro-choice; no, Hillary Rodham Clinton is fanatically pro-choice,” Kengor explained. “There is nothing more ideologically worthy to her. To borrow from Nancy Pelosi, this is political ‘sacred ground’ to Mrs. Clinton.”
In fact, after telling America that she is “honored” by Planned Parenthood’s endorsement of her 2016 presidential election campaign, Clinton made the recently embattled abortion organization a promise.
“As your president, I will always have your back,” Hillary assured Planned Parenthood.
Kengor also rose concern about Clinton’s and Richard’s adulation of the notorious Margaret Sanger, who they consider a hero to modern women.
“I’ve written here before of the checkered history of Margaret Sanger, especially on race, which her devotees either excuse or avoid like the plague,” the professor noted. “There was her Negro Project, her May 1926 speech at a rally of the women’s chapter of the KKK in New Jersey, her general championing of an ideology of ‘race improvement,’ and much more. It is no surprise that a group of African-American pastors are demanding the removal of the bust of the progressive icon from the Smithsonian’s ‘Struggle for Justice’ exhibit.”
Incriminated by her own words, the late Planned Parenthood’s founder’s intention behind setting up women’s clinics allegedly had little to do with their health.
“Sanger deemed certain human beings ‘morons,’ ‘idiots,’ ‘imbeciles,’ ‘human weeds,’ and ‘misfits,’” Kengor pointed out. “She wanted her Planned Parenthood to spearhead a movement to generate ‘a race of thoroughbreds’ from the misbegotten ‘dead weight of human waste’ soiling the national landscape courtesy of undesired and ‘unfit’ breeders.”
And Sanger’s promotion of the subtle genocide of “unwanted” populations was evident in a statement she issued in 1934 commending the birth-control policies of Joseph Stalin’s Russia after returning from a fact-finding mission.
“We [in America] could well take example from Russia, where there are no legal restrictions, no religious condemnation, and where birth-control instruction is part of the regular welfare service of the government,” Sanger implored.
Any different today?
Kengor argues that Democrats are not far off from Sanger’s agenda today.
“That’s exactly where Clinton and modern progressives stand today: they demand that birth control be part of the regular welfare service of the government, and funded by taxpayers regardless of religious objection,” the Christian leader impressed. “If you disagree, the Obama administration will take you all the way to the Supreme Court. Just ask Hobby Lobby, Conestoga Wood Specialties, and the Little Sisters of the Poor.”
The vocal pro-life advocate also pointed out Clinton’s defense of Planned Parenthood in the midst of its selling of baby body parts scandal.
“None of Sanger’s sordid history has deterred Hillary Clinton’s unflagging admiration, just as none of the video exposes of Chianti-sipping Planned Parenthood personnel fingering their Caesar’s salad as they discuss crushing unborn babies has deterred her crusade to keep America’s largest abortion provider awash in tax dollars,” Kengor expressed.
Clinton’s unconditional support for the abortion giant was confirmed in her following statement.
“I don’t have all the facts, but Planned Parenthood has apologized for the insensitivity of the employee who was taped,” Clinton insisted concerning the Center for Medical Progress’s video-sting exposing a Planned Parenthood employee casually discussing the ‘harvesting’ of babies. “But for more than a century Planned Parenthood has provided essential services for women.”
Clinton then attempted to point the finger at the makers of the video as the ones deserving scorn.
“I think it is unfortunate that Planned Parenthood had been the object of such a concerted attack for so many years, and it’s really an attack against women’s rights to choose,” Clinton contended, adding that the abortion group does “really good work” and that she will continue to be “proud to stand with Planned Parenthood.”
The fact that Planned Parenthood gives Clinton more financial support than any other Democrat was also emphasized by Kangor, who wonders if the media will ever question her allegiance of Sanger’s racist ideals.
“Someone in the media who can get near Mrs. Clinton should ask if she’s willing to repudiate Margaret Sanger and her organization’s highly questionable and objectionable history in everything from race to the literal business of baby parts,” Kangor ventured. “Now that Clinton has received Planned Parenthood’s endorsement, and promises to have its ‘back,’ it seems a fair thing to ask, doesn’t it?”
