100 Years of Planned Parenthood
This Saturday, October 15 will mark Planned Parenthood’s 100th year of operation. 100 years of horrific practices. 100 years involving forced sterilizations, eugenics, population control, racism, and abortion-on-demand.
As Planned Parenthood celebrates their birthday, we remember the millions of birthdays they’ve denied.
As we approach the mark of a century, we want you to know 3 important ways for you to take a stand against Planned Parenthood:
This Saturday, a coalition of pro-life advocacy groups are leading prayer vigils at Planned Parenthood locations across the country. In Ohio, vigils will be held in Bedford Heights, Cincinnati, Columbus, Dayton, Mansfield, and Rocky River. Find details at protestpp.com.
Next Thursday is our big night, An Evening with Dinesh D’Souza! In his film, Hillary’s America, D’Souza slams Hillary Clinton for praising Margaret Sanger and exposes Planned Parenthood’s notorious eugenic practices. Get your tickets now and join us in exposing the truth!
Tickets to the event are just $20. Limited VIP seating and tickets to a private reception with Mr. D’Souza before the event are also available. For pricing information and availability, please contact Devin Scribner at 614-547-0099 ext. 309 or by email at [email protected].
Recently, news came out that Planned Parenthood is investing $30 million to elect Hillary Clinton in key states, including Ohio. Fortunately, the pro-life team at Susan B.

100 Years of Planned Parenthood: The History
As we approach the anniversary of Planned Parenthood’s founding, please share this information in your efforts to change hearts and minds!
On October 15, 1916, Margaret Sanger opened the first birth control clinic in the country, the first of what would become Planned Parenthood Federation of America. Sanger’s birth control advocacy was inextricably tied to her belief in eugenics, a movement that attempted to “improve” the human population by discouraging “unfit” people from reproducing.
Who did Margaret Sanger consider “unfit”? The poor, the sick, the disabled, the “feeble-minded,” the “idiots,” the “morons,” and the “insane.”
African Americans were also a target. To advance her cause, she accepted an invitation to speak to the women’s branch of the Ku Klux Klan in 1926. In 1939, she initiated the “Negro Project.” In explaining her vision and her methods, Sanger wrote, “We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”
To this day, Planned Parenthood’s highest award is given in Margaret Sanger’s name. In 2009, the recipient of the award was Hillary Clinton, who gushed, “I admire Margaret Sanger enormously, her courage, her tenacity, her vision.”
In 1970, Planned Parenthood officially began performing abortions in New York on the first day that the state legalized them. In the more than 40 years since, abortion services have grown to consume a bigger and bigger market share for the organization. In 2015, Planned Parenthood performed 323,999 abortions, all while receiving $553.7 million from US taxpayers.
You know as well as we do the horrors committed by Planned Parenthood. You know the horrors they continue to commit to this day. Over the next week, we urge you to take action against Planned Parenthood and spread the word about the many ways they have harmed the dignity of the human person over the last century!
