Black leader outraged Illinois lawmakers seek taxpayer funding for abortions

CHICAGO – Black Illinois conservative Babette Holder told Illinois Family Institute that her research shows Margaret Sanger established the first Planned Parenthood clinics in black neighborhoods to minimize the growth of the African American community.

"We know that Planned Parenthood specifically targets the black community," Holder said in a video interview. She said the abortion providers use "the ills and the flaws with that community" to fund their program and, "mainly, their abortions."

Holder's comments were stirred by a bill moving through the Illinois General Assembly that would require taxpayers to pay for abortions in Illinois. HB 40 could be voted on in the Illinois House this week.

Five of the bill's 23 Democrat co-sponsors are African-Americans.

Holder said Sanger's mission was to eliminate "human weeds" – a term Sanger used – when she set up the first clinic near a black neighborhood in New York's Bronx.

  1. Sigh. So much wrong. Sanger’s clinic was in the Brownsville neighborhood of Brooklyn. It was primarily Russian Jews, not blacks. Planned Parenthood was exclusively a birth control organization. People forget what it was like in an era when birth control was illegal and the rate of death in childbirth was astronomically higher than it is today.

  2. I doubt if these five black co-sponsors know anything about the history of Margaret Sanger and Planned Parenthood, or do they even CARE to know.
    Madigan tells them what to do, and they do it, even if it’s against the interests of their own people.
    That’s the Democrat Party, the party of slavery, the Ku Klux Klan and now, the party of legalized, taxpayer-funded infanticide.
