Planned Parenthood has been targeting the elimination of children born to Black and poor mothers since its birth more than a century ago. From founder Margaret Sanger's support of compulsory sterilization of the "unfit" and her infamous "Negro Project" then, to today's reality that the vast majority of Planned Parenthood clinics are within walking distance of nonwhite neighborhoods, her legacy of destruction and dehumanization remains.According to the Guttmacher Institute, the former research arm of Planned Parenthood:• Three in four women receiving abortions are among the poorest income groups.• Six in 10 who are driven to abortion are women of color.• Six in 10 women who undergo abortions are already mothers.• Half of all abortions are repeat abortions.• Because of the lack of resources and support for mothers in school and at work, as well as from the fathers of their children, women cite these obstacles as top reasons to seek abortion.Read more in FFL President Serrin M.

Thanks to the overturning of Roe v. Wade, we are free to protect in law innocent children living and growing in their mothers' wombs.

Your child isn't worth anything anyway.'"***We were absolutely humbled by Marie Palmer's honest letter in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review ( We invite you to read our powerful issue of The American Feminist, "Voices of Women — and Men — who Mourn," about the spectrum of reproductive loss and grief, including miscarriage and abortion.
