Day Gardner of the National Black Pro-Life Union has said that during Black History Month Americans should acknowledge abortion’s disproportionate impact on blacks and should see abortion advocacy as a form of “ethnic cleansing” that targets the black community. “Abortion providers are still being located for the most part in black neighborhoods and are still delivering the same old message,” Gardner said, claiming their message is that black, poor urban children are “not worthy of life” and that America would “be a better place without black people.” Writing in a Tuesday commentary, she recounted the history of black oppression at the hands of groups like the Ku Klux Klan (KKK). “The Klan's aim was to prevent African-Americans from voting, getting an education, competing for jobs and owning property,” she explained. While the KKK conducted a “lynching war” on blacks in the American South, Gardner charged that Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger and her allies were devising an “evil plan” to enforce what Sanger called “race hygiene.” In a 1922 book the birth control activist called for the elimination of “human weeds,” the segregation of “morons, misfits and maladjusted” and for the sterilization of “genetically inferior races.” According to Gardner, Sanger associated with known racists and was the guest speaker at a Ku Klux Klan rally in Silverlake, New Jersey in 1926. In 1939, Sanger launched the Negro Project. Gardner claimed this effort planned to “get rid of black people” by limiting their population growth with abortion and sterilization. She also charged that Sanger sought to use the clergy and charismatic members of the black community to advance her cause in a form of “ethnic cleansing.” Let's talk about this tonight, on the slugfest, "If You can Handle the Truth."
