Blood Money Isn’t Colorblind

Abortion — By on February 29, 2008 at 12:03 am

Lila Rose, a pro-life student and reporter at UCLA, launched an undercover investigation aimed at exposing the racial insensitivity of Planned Parenthood. With the help of an actor, she contacted Planned Parenthood clinics in seven states, inquiring if they would be willing to accept a donation earmarked for the abortion of black babies. Not one employee objected or questioned the request, even when the actor insisted that the purpose was to “lower the number of black people” in America.


As Jared Bridges says, “Never a group to turn away a buck, Planned Parenthood will take money from wherever and whomever it can get it, be it the government, Hollywood movie stars, and corporations. That welcoming spirit apparently even extends to those who seek racial genocide.”

    Unbelievable… actually that is incorrect…
    Completely believable. Check out the founder of Planned “Infanticide” …
    Margaret Sanger.. she was instrumental in the growth of the modern eugenics movement in America… Just Google it and see.

    Wow. That’s just stunning.
    I’d have to think some heads will roll … even if just to save face.

    So I saw this same story yesterday (though not the video) and I emailed a liberal friend of mine to see what his response would be. He was similarly outraged – but at the audacity and deception of the reporters! So now I guess liberals area gainst undercover reporting to uncover deception, fraud and racism! Unbelievable.

    I just heard this on the radio yesterday.
    This is excellent. Thanks, Joe.

    The reality of it the video is shocking, but it is totally believable given the history of PP/Margaret Sanger.
    But allow the outrage to extend to the eugenic motivations behind preimplantation genetic diagnosis and sex selection.

  • http://evangelicalperspective.blogspot.com/ Collin Brendemuehl

    There’s no outrage. Yet.
    Let’s not forget that it’s not been on CNN that I’ve seen yet.

    Suppose a racist called a “pregnancy crisis” center and wanted to donate money to help whites avoid abortion. Do you think they would take his money? Suppose a racist contacted an adoption agency and said he only wanted to adopt a white child. Do you think they would turn him away?
    The fact is that virtually all non-profit organizations will accept donations from virtually any source with virtually any giving motive. I’ve heard that even evangelical churches will accept money from klansmen or even if it was acquired through gambling or shadier means. I’ve never heard of a church refusing a contribution because they didn’t approve of the motive of the contributor.

    Should they? I don’t think so. Do I think, though, they should let him ‘earmark’ his money for only whites? I don’t think so.

    And they definitely shouldn’t get “excited” about such an earmark request or say that it’s “understandable” that white people might want to stop African-Americans from procreating because of affirmative action.

    “I’ve heard that even evangelical churches will accept money from klansmen or even if it was acquired through gambling or shadier means.”
    Sure you have.

    Oclarki
    Sure you have.
    Hmmm, somehow I suspect if I sent a check into the McCain campaign with “No blacks in the Oval Office!” in the memo field it would end up cashed. Even if I walked into one of his campaign offices expressing the desire to donate to keep a black out of the White House, the person taking my money would be more concerned about complying with FEC rules than the fact that McCain opposes such positions.
    What seems to be demonstrated here is mostly a cheap shot and a stupid one. Cheap because you can pull this nonsense off with many organizations. Stupid because all you’re doing is organizations will be happy to cash a check you write out to them.

    And they definitely shouldn’t get “excited” about such an earmark request or say that it’s “understandable” that white people might want to stop African-Americans from procreating because of affirmative action.
    One possibility is that they had the guy pegged for a nut and were humoring him because:
    a. PP clinics already have enough trouble with nutcases.
    and/or
    b. He was a nut with a check (see above on organizations willingness to cash checks you write them….this also works for individual people…I will be happy to cash any checks you all want to send to me. Feel free to send multiple checks to make sure I’m not just kidding).
    c. They had him pegged as a faker and were willing to grab the check.
    Ex raises an interesting hypothetical. What if the local chastity league got a donation from someone who wanted to fight out of wedlock births in the African American community so his child would have less competition from affirmative action 20 years from now? If they take his money but fail to try to ‘fix’ his motivations does that demonstrate anything really useful about abstinance organizations?

    Boonton,
    It was at several locations all over the country.
    Including a development director who would be a person trained in the field.
    Yes, some of the “Hmmm” responses sounded accomodating.
    But …
    The relationship between “minority” and “Women in Need” is undeniable. Even subtracting what *might* be at issue, there is plenty of material to indict PP for patent racism.
    Sadly, Margret Sanger still lives in PP.

    Boonton:

    You can stop right there. There is a difference between humoring a lunatic and playing the part yourself. This employee stepped over the line of merely humoring the actor in saying she was “excited.” I’ve been in her shoes where I was taking a call from someone in a work situation who decided they wanted to tell me how inferior women are to men (one person would hang up if a woman answered the phone) or some other hateful thing, and I didn’t get “excited” – I just said, “Mmmhmm,” or a similarly noncommittal response just because I couldn’t be confrontational with the customer about their idiotic statement. I think of about a hundred different ways she could have handled the situation other than responding like she was just as hateful.

  • http://TheEverwiseBoonton.blogspot.com Boonton

    Another possibility that occurred to me was that she thought she was taking advantage of hate…when she says things like “yes we can earmark your donation for the African-American community”. Fund raisers are essentially only a notch or two above salesmen in the evolutionary scale.
    I agree that I would have handled such a caller differently….then again if I was trying to keep the lights on in a clinic I might take any dollar I could get my hands on.
    I’m unimpressed, though, with this ‘contribution’ to the debate on either abortion or Planned Parenthood. Like I said, if I walked into McCain’s campaign and got them to thank me for taking my check to “keep blacks out of the WH”…I wouldn’t say that says anything of interest about McCain.

    HILLARY WANTS TO TAKE AWAY OUR RIGHT TO EVEN SPEAK ABOUT ABORTION(cnn.com, issue :abortion) AND REINSTATE HER HUSBAND’S (BILL’S) VETO BY ALLOWING THE KILLING OF AMERICAN BABIES WHEN THEY ARE HALF IN AND HALF OUT OF A WOMAN’S BIRTH CANAL (PARTIAL BIRTH ABORTION). PRESIDENT BUSH STOPPED THIS OVERTLY-HORRIFIC EVIL ACT.

    McCain HAS BEEN WISHY WASHY IN GENERAL ON SOME KEY ISSUES. HE SLIPPED TODAY (FEB 29) AND CALLED HIMSELF A LIBERAL..ONE MUST WONDER, THOUGH…… SINCE HE PARTNERS WITH /HAS THE BACKING OF, A MAN WHO HATES CATHOLICS AND CALLS THEIR CHURCH A “WHORE”, AND “ANTI-CHRIST”. …………..
    IN ADDITION,ON THE RIGHT-TO-LIFE. THIS “MODERATE”( MC CAIN) HAS STATED THAT HE BELIEVED IN STEM CELL RESEARCH (USING ABORTED BABIES IN PETRI DISHES FOR RESEARCH). THIS IS HOW THE NAZIS PROCEEDED!
    POSSIBLY ROBBING VOTES FROM MIKE HUCKABEE, TOO… (IN WASHINGTON STATE) BY NOT DEMANDING THAT THEY COUNT ALL THE VOTES ?!?

    THIS, ALL OF IT, IS TOO REMINISCENT OF GEORGE ORWELL’S BOOK , ‘ANIMAL FARM’..
    2008 IS A YEAR FOR “CHANGE” ALRIGHT…BUT WHAT KIND, AND HOW IS IT BEING MARKETED IN ELECTION 2008 ?
    WHEN THE GOVERNMENT DECIDES WHO SHOULD LIVE AND DIE, WHO SHOULD SPEAK OR NOT, AND ABORTED BABIES CAN BE “FARMED” FOR RESEARCH,WE ARE SURELY GOING TO “CHANGE” !
    AS GOVERNOR MIKE HUCKABEE SO WISELY AND ELOQUENTLY STATED: “GOVERNMENT DID NOT GIVE LIFE, AND GOVERNMENT CANNOT TAKE IT AWAY”.

    HE IS THE TRUE CONSERVATIVE. OH, BY THE WAY, MC CAIN IS TRYING TO IGNORE A HUGE PETITION FOR A REPUBLICAN DEBATE WITH THE REMAINING CANDIDATES…EVEN THOUGH HIS REPUBLICAN CONSTITUENTS WOULD LOVE ONE !
    THIS UPCOMING VOTE IN TEXAS IS CRUCIAL …TEXAS CAN CHANGE THE TIDE AND EVERYTHING IN THIS ELECTION, TOWARDS MIKE HUCKABEE ,AND REALLY SAVE THIS COUNTRY!
    WHEN COMMUNISTIC SYMPATHIZERS (read:OBAMAS COMMUNIST TIES,WIKIPEDIA), AND NAZI-LIKE TACTICS RULE THE DEMOCRATS AND THE REPUBLICANS SUPPORT STEM-CELL (EXPERIMENTS ON HUMAN FETUSES)…WHEN WE
    HAVE NO VIABLE, TRUE CONSERVATIVE VOICE IN “JOHN MC CAIN AND COMPANY” … THEN WE MUST VOTE AND HELP MIKE HUCKABEE , OR WE WILL HAVE HELL TO PAY.
    HUCKABEE—CONSISTENTLY PRO-AMERICA, PRO-FREEDOM AND PRO-LIFE.
    GOD DID GIVE US LIFE..LET US GO FORTH TO HELP HIS TRUE SERVANT, MR MIKE HUCKABEE MAKE IT ALL THE WAY TO THE WHITE HOUSE !!
    PS: YOU KNOW, I HAVE NEVER BEEN POLITICALLY-INCLINED BEFORE THIS ELECTION..BUT I BELIEVE WITH ALL MY HEART AND SOUL THAT EVERYTHING WE VALUE MAY BE A STAKE IF WE ALL DON’T HELP MIKE HUCKABEE GET THE REPUBLICAN NOMINATION !

    GOD’S KINGDOM COME. GOD’S WILL BE DONE. ON EARTH,AS IT IS IN

    Ex,
    Glad you are an ex preacher… At least we know where you stand.
    My wife and I are treasurers of our Baptist Church. It is our explicit policy to decline any… repeat… any donations that are a product of behavior we feel that does not honor Christ. So you are incorrect. But I am sure the truth will not convince you as you have already denied the one who is Truth…
    I believe you confuse fact with wishful thinking.

  • http://TheEverwiseBoonton.blogspot.com Boonton

    Bill,
    Unfortunately it appears I was right about McCain and he does not share you perspective about refusing support from those whose values are the opposite of what they are trying to do. The latest story is that McCain refuses to reject the support of anti-Catholic preacher John Hagee.
    I think you have a correct policy in your church but not one that should be applied to organizations with a charitable mission. As a church, you are interested in the whole soul of your members and those you reach. So I can see, for example, why you may not accept a donation from a man who made millions as a mobster. While you may do good stuff with that money, taking it may give him the impression that his lifestyle is not so bad after all.
    A charity, on the other hand, does not exist to help those who donate to it but those whose mission it is to serve. If I’m doing a homeless shelter, for example, my mission is to keep a place open for the homeless. If that means taking money from the mobster looking for a tax deduction I don’t think that would be wrong.

    As sickening as this is, as was mentioned above, it should not surprise us. Planned Parenthood was founded under these very same racist undertones, and its about time America wakes up and takes a stand against this trash — even more so the Church…

  • Rob

    What a non-story. Shall we indict Christianity as a whole because some priests molest children? While the practice of accepting money from bigots may be more prevalent in PP than pedophilia is in the RCC, it hardly rises to the same level of moral turpitude. The money of bigots is just as green as yours or mine. PP has a job to do, and its employees are not seeking to enrich themselves. Since apparently now the organization has to select its benefactors to suit the PC concerns of people who otherwise reject political correctness, some employee training is order.
    Let’s see this for what it is: sensationalism designed to bring discredit on an organization that does important work.

  • http://TheEverwiseBoonton.blogspot.com Boonton

    Brother Hank
    Planned Parenthood was founded under these very same racist undertones,
    What a double standard. 99% of American history would have to be judged equally as racist if not more based on this standard. When, however, this standard is applied to an institution people like you tend to like the response is almost always a plea that things have to be read in the ‘context’ of their times or that ‘political correctness’ has gone too far.

    Rob:

    Since apparently now the organization has to select its benefactors to suit the PC concerns of people who otherwise reject political correctness, some employee training is order.

    I don’t think this is really about political correctness, nor do I think that anyone is talking about screening donors. These were clear cases where the individuals purported to be donating money for explicitly racist reasons. The people who represented the company responded in kind with the same racism of the donors. Now I don’t personally think that PP should have refused to take the donations because of the reason, but I do think that the representatives should: 1) not have been so enthusiastic about honoring the request and instead 2) informed the donor(s) that they would be happy to take the donation to help a woman in need but that the organization does not provide services in order to control populations of society (or something to that effect). If nothing else, the organization should work on a specific policy for dealing with this sort of thing since this incident was basically a PR disaster.

  • Rob

    “Now I don’t personally think that PP should have refused to take the donations because of the reason, but I do think that the representatives should: 1) not have been so enthusiastic about honoring the request and instead 2) informed the donor(s) that they would be happy to take the donation to help a woman in need but that the organization does not provide services in order to control populations of society (or something to that effect).”
    I agree entirely. However, knowing that every organization has a few associates that represent it poorly, I am more indignant at the transparency of the attempt to discredit PP than at the “bad eggs” that played into her hand. What you refer to as a PR disaster is only one because of this ideologue’s machinations. She has not exposed any racial insensitivity at the organizational level. If she could have done so, she would have. She had to settle for some phone-answerers. When I get bad phone service at, say, the Home Depot, I don’t conclude that the company doesn’t want my business. I merely infer that they need to re-train or replace their phone operator.

  • http://thechristiancynic.wordpress.com The Christian Cynic

    I’m with you on that, Rob, and my primary concern is that this is put forth not as an isolated incident but something that was reproduced similarly around the country. Of course, I still think that better supports the theory that the organization has a lot of work to do in training their representatives on how not to sound like racists.
