The ad battle over abortion in the United States gets more and more bizarre.
Here's the Christian Defense Coalition's pitch: Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood and sexual revolutionary, had a regrettable involvement with the eugenics movement in her early days. There's no defending this. She even gave a lecture on birth control to the women's auxiliary of the KKK in New Jersey ("one of the weirdest experiences I had in lecturing").
So, sensing a wedge issue in the "race card", this group has decided that they can make the claim that today's Planned Parenthood has a racist agenda against African Americans.
Furthermore, they would like you to know that celebrities who support Planned Parenthood are pretty much the KKK:
Yeah, that's weird. here's the original:
I don't even know what else to say. It's like drawing a Hitler moustache on someone and calling it a political action. Not even worth refuting.
Although it's worth noting, for the sake of irony, that Ms. Sanger hated abortion. She never lived to see it legalized, but it's interesting to note that the whole family planning movement was started as a way to prevent abortions. Hmmm...
