WIC promotes racist Planned Parenthood

The following is from this blog:

Visit the USDA's WIC Learning Center, the U.S. government's Women, Infants, and Children program, and you'll find a link to the Planned Parenthood Federation of America website.

That's because a hefty chunk of the $5 billion in taxpayer funds for the program designed to help feed and provide health care for low-income pregnant women, new moms, and young children go to Margaret Sanger's organization.


Since some 61 percent of WIC recipients are nonwhites, WIC's efforts to steer them towards Planned Parenthood dovetails neatly with the efforts of the nation's No. 1 abortion provider to prevent births in the black and Latino communities.

"We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We do not want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members."

---- Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, in a letter in 1939 to Clarence Gamble, a partner in her plan to promote birth control and abortions in the black community.
