And, the whole story goes far beyond political parties. Both Democrats and Republicans alike are - and have been - complicit.
Subsequent to the "sting" videos being released there has been a move, across the political "aisles", to defund Planned Parenthood. Prior to passing judgement on this intended action, watch the below documentary. Or, education is a wonderful thing or a terrible thing depending on whether one seeks facts or wishes to stay with preconceived notions, pro or con.
The documentary video below is of extraordinary completeness and accuracy. The title of the documentary is "Maafa21". Maafa is a Swahili word meaning 'Great Disaster'. The number 21 refers to the '21st Century'.
Up front warning: it is 2 hours and 10 minutes in length. I would strongly recommend not letting that deter you from watching the entire thing. But, if something of that depth is not appealing, go to Google and type in "The Negro Project" or, there is a link to this "project" at the bottom of this page. What you'll find is but a small fraction of what the below documentary offers.
The documentary, in part, goes into some detail about Margaret Sanger, a founder of Planned Parenthood. It accurately highlights her involvement with "eugenics" - A theory that would rid humanity of the "unfit". If you are not really familiar with the term, then the below documentary is definitely for you.
I did note some omissions from the content of the documentary.
The documentary fails to point out a significant aspect of Sanger's approach to the implementation of eugenics. Although not specifically stated one way or the other, one might reasonably conclude from the documentary that Sanger was a proponent of abortion. In fact Sanger, personally, was an avid opponent of abortion; she found it immoral - even though her support to the notion of eugenics was adamant. Her approach to the "problem" was mainly birth control - by hook or by crook. Some of this "by hook or by crook" was (and is) pretty insidious, however.
The documentary also discusses the concept of "colonization". "Colonization" was a move prevalent both before and after slavery ended in our country. Basically, its intent was to send all the blacks back to Africa. Actually, almost no one who favored colonization "hated" blacks. More, they thought it a more "humane" treatment of blacks. Yep! This idea would be viewed as pure racism today - but not back then.
Anyway, in the documentary it is offered that many prominent people of "the day" favored colonization. They left out one, however - Abraham Lincoln. Perhaps the omission was due to the high degree of reverence paid to Mr. Lincoln; after all, he was the 'Great Emancipator', he freed the slaves we are told. In fact, although a great opponent of slavery, his direct actions freed no one, not even via "The Emancipation Proclamation". For more on this, Click Here. But, I can understand their omission.
Also, the documentary fails to point out specifically that eugenics was born, bred, fostered, and financed by those in the Northern states - not in the South.
One last note on the below documentary's content. The documentary, which seems to have been done several years ago, indicates that federal funding to Planned Parenthood at the time of filming was about $350 million per year. As of now, federal funding to them is at $540 million per year.
A well known conservative, reacting to the furor surrounding both the Confederate flag and Planned Parenthood issues, recently "tweeted" a version of this picture:
While many, indeed, may find the image disturbing, offensive, or otherwise troubling, it is accurate in its message. (I can not verify with accuracy the actual number presented. However, this picture might provide the scope of the issue overall:)
- And, the answer to the question posed by the first picture is not the Confederate Battle flag. Watch the documentary below.
Arguments exists that imply that efforts to defund Planned Parenthood are aimed at removing the availability of women's health care alternatives - or, the Democrats' alleged "war on women" mantra.
This is totally absurd. The first half of the below picture depicts the number of organizational facilities which provide all manner of medical services to women across the country. The second half shows the number of Planned Parenthood facilities. Doing away with an organization founded upon eugenics (i.e., genocide) would have little to no effect on the services offered to women.
One of the company's benefiting from Planned Parenthood's activities filed a suit to restrain the "sting" video producer from releasing any additional videos. If the videos, alone, aren't damning enough, further info has been revealed:
Daleiden said on CNN, “In a meeting with their top leadership, they admitted that
