In a recent article we referred to in Bloomberg, Margaret Sanger was described as a “female trailblazer”. This is the opinion of those who see her as a saviour in the midst of the Great Depression of the 1930s where “unwanted” pregnancies left women with “sickness, disease and poverty”. It is unreal that Sanger, the Founder of Planned Parenthood (PP) would be seen as a female trailblazer.
Since March 2019 Unplanned the movie of the true story told by Abby Johnson, a former PP Manager, has shocked audiences in the United States with the truth behind the legacy of Sanger which is abortion on demand.
After providing contraceptives at the PP centres across the United States (which are mostly in poor Black and Hispanic communities), the next clear step if the contraceptive did not work was to provide abortions. This has become the means by which that organisation gains much of their funds. In the movie, Johnson ultimately exposes the profound truth that abortions do not help women.
