“Are these folks blind to the irony?”

by Guy Page

In the email that included this cartoon, Artist Dan Jeffries described its genesis.

“On Channel 3 News the other night in a story about Planned Parenthood, they had an exterior shot of the Barre PP office. And there in the window was a BLM sign. It was brief but it shocked me. Are these folks blind to the irony? That half second image floored me. Have the people at Barre PP ever heard of Margret Sanger?”

For the record, Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger:

1) wrote in a 1939 letter (see the actual letter if you doubt) these words: “We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population.”

2) happily spoke before a gathering of the Ku Klux Klan. “I accepted an invitation to talk to the women’s branch of the Ku Klux Klan… I was escorted to the platform, was introduced, and began to speak…In the end, through simple illustrations I believed I had accomplished my purpose. A dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered.” — Margaret Sanger, An Autobiography, published in 1938, p. 366

Planned Parenthood of New England has never publicly disavowed Margaret Sanger or addressed her racist statements.

According to 2018 CDC statistics, the number of black babies aborted almost equals the number of white aborted babies, despite blacks comprising just 13% of the population.

  1. Methinks i see a straw man.

    The left i know harps on about the eugenics movement and is aware that eugenics was a mainstream belief in the US for many years. Planned Parenthood, many US states including Vermont, the judicial system and many philanthropists promoted and practiced eugenics.

  2. The street artist Sabo captured the irony best with his rendition of a Planned Parenthood sign stating Black Lives Are Matter… Guess that the case here in Vermont, truly deplorable.
