.- Day Gardner of the National Black Pro-Life Union has said that during Black History Month Americans should acknowledge abortionâs disproportionate impact on blacks and should see abortion advocacy as a form of âethnic cleansingâ that targets the black community. âAbortion providers are still being located for the most part in black neighborhoods and are still delivering the same old message,â Gardner said, claiming their message is that black, poor urban children are ânot worthy of lifeâ and that America would âbe a better place without black people.â
Writing in a Tuesday commentary, she recounted the history of black oppression at the hands of groups like the Ku Klux Klan (KKK).
âThe Klan's aim was to prevent African-Americans from voting, getting an education, competing for jobs and owning property,â she explained.
While the KKK conducted a âlynching warâ on blacks in the American South, Gardner charged that Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger and her allies were devising an âevil planâ to enforce what Sanger called ârace hygiene.â
In a 1922 book the birth control activist called for the elimination of âhuman weeds,â the segregation of âmorons, misfits and maladjustedâ and for the sterilization of âgenetically inferior races.â 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 âget rid of black peopleâ 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 âethnic cleansing.â
Gardner cited Sangerâs letter to Dr. Clarence Gamble in which she wrote:
âThe most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. 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.â
The organization Sanger founded, Planned Parenthood, makes money by âkilling children â especially black children,â Gardner charged. While the KKK killed about 3,500 people since its beginnings in 1865, Planned Parenthood is responsible for âmore than 17 million black deaths since 1973.â
âEvery day more than 5,000 babies are slaughtered by the blades of the abortion butchers--decapitated, ripped apart...killed,â Gardnerâs statement concluded.
âThis is Black History Month. Let's remember why the killing began and then vow in Jesus' name to end it!â
