In the past few months, Planned Parenthood has suddenly begun to distance itself from its founder, Margaret Sanger, to the point that they even removed her name from one of their facilities.
The question is why?
Did they only recently discover that this woman is the poster child for racism and eugenics? Or maybe they always knew this, but they had a “Road to Demascus” moment and saw the error of their ways. Of course, you’d have to still believe in the Tooth Fairy to buy into either one of those scenarios.
A more plausible explanation is found in my book, Siege. I make the case that, for years, Planned Parenthood has been positioning itself to become an agency of the federal government, probably within the Department of Health and Human Services. The plan was derailed in 2016 when Hillary Clinton lost, but with Biden in office, the long-time love affair he and Kamala Harris have had with Planned Parenthood could put it back on track.
However, America is now a different environment than it was when this effort began. Today, even the hint of racism – founded or not – is the kiss of death. So maybe, the people who want to turn Planned Parenthood into a government agency have concluded that it is time to toss Sanger under the bus and be rid of her racial and eugenics baggage.
