With Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade the history of Planned Parenthood has been brought into question as they continue to fight for the rights of women who want to abort unborn children. In today’s society Planned Parenthood is mostly looked as the good guys who are doing noble work by protecting women’s rights over their bodies and unborn children. However, CJ Pearson reminded people of the racist history behind why Planned Parenthood was created.
Is Planned Parenthood Racist? A Black Man Named CJ Pearson Explains Why He is Celebrating Supreme Court Overturning Roe vs Wade
CJ Pearson is going viral after he posted a video celebrating Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. He feels their decision to overturn the federal laws that protected a woman’s right to abortion is something that should be celebrated by black people, because of the history behind the real reason Planned Parenthood was created.
Planned Parenthood was created by a racist white supremacist woman named Margaret Sanger as part of the controversial “Negro Project”, which was basically a covert operation that was hoping to systematically eliminate or reduce the black race in America. Margaret Sanger believed that one effective way to eliminate the black population in America was to promote abortions within the black community. Through Planned Parenthood she hoped to hire black doctors, because she believed that it would be easier to infiltrate the black community without them realizing their actual plan was focused on significantly reducing the black race in the America.
Her theory was that if black women were talking to black doctors about abortion there would be less fear, superstition, and doubt. In her autobiography Margaret Sanger talked about her conversations with Ku Klux Klan members, and how she agreed with their eugenics approach to gradually and systemically eliminating or significantly reducing the black population in America.
To put the possible impact of Planned Parenthood in perspective today you can look at the disproportionate amount of abortions that happen in the black community. For example according to CDC in 2016 38% abortions involved black women despite the fact that black women make up only 13% of female population in America.
With all that said, take a listen to CJ Pearson explaining why he is celebrating Supreme Court’s Decision to overturn Roe V. Wade as a black man in America.
Regardless of how you feel about the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, the sentiment that CJ Pearson has about Planned Parenthood being a racist organization is based on facts, and as aforementioned statistics from today show that abortions disproportionately happen in the black community. It definitely makes you think twice about how Planned Parenthood promotes abortion to women.
Supreme Court’s decision will surely save the lives of the a lot of unborn children, but you also have to think about the women who get pregnant as the result of being $exually assaulted, and the woman that have health complications from pregnancy that could cause death. States where abortions are made illegal should definitely have stipulations for women in those two situations to have access to abortions.
