Planned Parenthood operates the nation’s largest chain of abortion clinics and almost 80% of its facilities are located in minority neighborhoods. About 13% of American women are black, but they submit to over 35% of all abortions in this country. While these statistics are shocking, they are embedded in the history of Planned Parenthood. Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, was active with the Klu Klux Klan (KKK) and the eugenics movement in the beginning of the twentieth century.
