WASHINGTON, D.C., (LifeSiteNews) – Congressman Russ Fulcher is calling on Planned Parenthood CEO Leana Wen to provide the percentage of abortions her organization performs on "women of color" in a letter highlighting the abortion giant’s historical ties to the eugenics movement.
“I recently learned that Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger embraced a philosophy of racial discrimination and eugenics,” the Idaho Republican wrote in the letter, which is dated March 11 (read full letter below). “That historical fact, and the possibility that this philosophy continues today within your organization, is disturbing to me and many others.
“It has also come to my attention that, in a personal letter to Katharine Dexter McCormick in 1950, Ms. Sanger called for ‘a simple, cheap, safe contraceptive to be used in poverty-stricken slums, jungles, and among the most ignorant people,’” Fulcher continued. He went on to quote Sanger as endorsing “national sterilization for certain dysgenic types of our population who are being encouraged to breed and would die out were the government not feeding them.”
