Black pro-life activists accuse Planned Parenthood of racial discrimination

A group of black pro-life activists have filed a racial discrimination claim against Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the United States. The National Black Pro-Life Coalition, an organisation that hopes to “end abortion by restoring a culture of Life and the foundation of Family in the Black community,” announced that it filed a claim against Planned Parenthood with the Office of Civil Rights in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.


The suit comes nearly two months after more than 120 African Americans signed a letter to Planned Parenthood, urging the organisation to “confront its racist founding, mission and practices.”

The organisation quoted Catherine Davis, the founder of the pro-life Restoration Project, who said, “Systemic racism and abortion intersect at the door of Planned Parenthood, an organisation that has targeted Black women and their babies for almost five decades.”

Davis argued that by disproportionately aborting black babies, Planned Parenthood was violating the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which “made it illegal for recipients of federal assistance to discriminate on the basis of race.”

Planned Parenthood was founded more than a century ago by Margaret Sanger, a eugenicist who wanted to control and limit the black population of the United States.
