"Busting the Birth-Control Myth" is a remarkable piece, posted at the Daily Beast, by Kirsten Powers (pictured), a Democrat who worked in the Clinton Admin.
Ms. Powers writes: "According to its most recent tax filing, the purpose of Planned Parenthood Federation of America is to provide leadership in '[a]chieving, through informed individual choice, a U.S. population of stable size in an optimum environment; in stimulating and sponsoring relevant biomedical, socio-economic, and demographic research.'
So it is, in reality, a population-control organization. Funny, this was never mentioned in the gauzy $200,000 advertising campaign launched last week. It also doesn’t make it into the 'About Us' section of the group’s website, which repeatedly claims its mission is to protect women’s health, when in fact the real mission is to keep the birth rate at whatever level the leaders believe it should be.
To hear Planned Parenthood and their supporters, they exist only to provide Pap smears or breast exams or prenatal services. In fact, President Cecile Richards has gone so far as to erroneously imply that they provide mammograms."
Do read the whole thing. Well done, Ms. Powers!
Margaret "Thin the Herd" Sanger was upfront about her agenda, but today's feminists, et. al., who make the big bucks off PP, can't afford to be that honest.
Update: Cecile Richards, PP's prez, makes $350,000, according to Bill O'Reilly.
