Atlanta billboard and Planned Parenthood's legacy of shame

In an earlier post I quoted from CDC data:

Abortion kills more black Americans than the seven leading causes of death combined, according to data collected by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for 2005, the latest year for which the abortion numbers are available. Abortion killed at least 203,991 blacks in the 36 states and two cities (New York City and the District of Columbia) that reported abortions by race in 2005, according to the CDC.  During that same year, according to the CDC, a total of 198,385 blacks nationwide died from heart disease, cancer, strokes, accidents, diabetes, homicide, and chronic lower respiratory diseases combined. These were the seven leading causes of death for black Americans that year.
Given the facts, the money quote in the Huffington Post's article regarding the billboards popping up in the Atlanta area is this:

"To use racist arguments to try to bait black people to get them to be anti-abortion is just disgusting," said Guy-Sheftall, who teaches women's history and feminist thought at the historically black women's college.

"These one-issue approaches that are not about saving the black family or black children, it's just a big distraction," she said. "Many black people don't know who Margaret Sanger is and could care less."
If it is true that black people do not know who Margaret Sanger is then shame on Guy-Sheftall.  Shame on the black churches and shame on those who chose the history curriculum taught in our schools.  Margaret Sanger, and her evil invention Planned Parenthood, are to black people what Hitler was to Jews.
Sanger, like Hitler, was a eugenicist.  Her goal, like Hitler's, was to rid society of "undesirables".  She considered black people to be "feeble minded" and as such, a drag on society.  Sanger started the "Negro Project"  and enlisted prominent black preachers of the day to aid her in convincing black society to embrace birth control and abortion. 
In The Truth About Margaret Sanger quotes from George Grant's Killer Angel.
In his book, Killer Angel, George Grant says: "Myths, according to theologian J. l. packer, are stories made up to sanctify social patterns.' They are lies, carefully designed to reinforce a particular philosophy or morality within a culture. They are instruments of manipulation and control.
Killer Angel tells the real story behind one of the biggest myths that controls our culture today the life and legacy of Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood. Grant exposes "the Big Lie" perpetuated by Sanger's followers and the organization she started.

Through detailed research and concise writing, Grant unveils Sanger's true character and ideology, which included blatant racism, revolutionary socialism, sexual perversion and insatiable avarice. Grant includes direct quotes from sources such as Sanger's Birth Control Review to support his findings. His biography spans Sanger's disturbed and unhappy upbringing which Sanger said contributed to her agitation and bitterness later in life to her eventual fixation with drugs, alcohol and the occult.

Particularly shocking was Sanger's involvement in the Eugenics movement. Grant says: "[Sanger] was thoroughly convinced that the inferior races' were in fact human weeds' and a menace to civilization.' . . . [S]he was a true believer, not simply someone who assimilated the jargon of the times as Planned Parenthood officials would have us believe."

Sanger died September 6, 1966, a week before her eighty-seventh birthday. Grant says: "[She] had nearly fulfilled her early boast that she would spend every last penny of Slee's [her second husband] fortune. In the process, though, she had lost everything else: love, happiness, satisfaction, fulfillment, family, and friends. In the end, her struggle was her naught."
Planned Parenthood has long played down its racist legacy and denied that it targets minority communities and women.  The facts say otherwise.

My answer to any rebuttal to these billboards is to watch: Maafa21 Black Genocide in 21st Century America. That film is researched from the archives of Margaret Sanger , Planned Parenthood, and their eugenic gang of followers. No debate - in their own words- see it here:
