If Planned Parenthood thought they could wrap themselves in REVEREND Dr. MLK’s legacy without getting fish slapped by Alvida King, they were DEAD wrong.
Planned Parenthood is nothing if not consistent.
The same group that used to claim that abortion is only ‘3 percent’ of the services they offer is now on record admitting that it is, in fact, their core service.
That’s in the words of their own President.
What else are they lying about?
Here’s another good example:
We honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s life & legacy as the fight for racial justice, economic equity, & reproductive freedom are undeniably intertwined. This fight is one we cannot do alone, & we are proud to stand w/ our partners who are on the frontlines of this fight. #MLKDay pic.twitter.com/X2f7Cnq8oe

Not in love with MONEY, but in love with justice?
Not only was PP lying about how big a role abortion is, but they were working very hard to silence those who told the truth. Those who DID tell the truth about their activities spilled the beans by ALSO telling the truth about what an INSANELY lucrative industry PP is running.
With a three-judge panel at the Appeals Court announcing that the hidden videos taken about Planned Parent selling baby parts, and ‘wanting a Ferrari‘ were NOT ‘deceptively edited’ as first claimed, that ‘love of money’ reference snaps right back on them.
(Here’s the story about that ruling, if you missed it.)
Hey CNN: Judges Rule Those Damning Abortion Videos Were NOT ‘Deceptively Edited’… Is That ‘News’?
As for the Humanity side of it, here’s Alveda King:
In a reaction to the tweet provided to CNSNews, King’s niece, Alveda King said Planned Parenthood’s “inhuman” and “inhumane” claim dishonored her uncle:
“To dishonor a prophet by raising a political banner which supports killing innocent babies on MLK’s birthday is so inhuman. To dishonor a prophet by raising a political banner on his birthday is so inhumane.”
“King sought after the spirit not the flesh. He was after the divine,” King’s niece continued, calling on people of all races to oppose “crimes against humanity,” such as abortion:
“20th century skin color race card inflammation will not solve crimes against humanity; including abortion, human trafficking, modern slavery, oppression. MLK did not serve politics. He didn’t serve government. He served God. We are not color blind; we are one human race; one blood, created in living color.”

And what about those who would point to the Margaret Sanger award he was given? We’ve got that covered, too.
In 1966, and before, Planned Parenthood was publicly against abortion, but for birth-control. So was Dr. King; so it shouldn’t be surprising that he accepted an award from them.
Dr. King did not know (as most people even today don’t know) that Margaret Sanger was a racist, elitist, and eugenicist. She knew that if he hopes for a controlled black population were to be realized then PP would have to enlist the help of black ministers. She knew that black ministers were very well respected in their communities. She once wrote:
“The mass of Negroes, particularly in the South, still breed carelessly and disastrously, with the result that the increase among Negroes, even more than among Whites, is from that portion of the population least intelligent and fit.***
“The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We do not want 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.” (Black Pro-Lifers March, Protest Racist Nature of Planned Parenthood and Abortion, p.1 online)
Planned Parenthood used Dr. King in order to promote birth-control; a practice he would have vehemently agreed with. But today, pro-Choice advocates use the memory of Dr. King to promote abortion; a practice which he vehemently disagreed with.
Another researcher has written:
“Some people against abortion: Mother Teresa, Martin Luther King, Jr., Gandhi, His Holiness the Dalai Lama (the leader of Tibetan Buddhism), feminist Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cody Stanton,…and Alice Paul (author of the original Equal Rights Amendment).” (Sacred Heart Catholic Essays: Abortion, p.1 online, emphasis added)
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was not a champion of “reproductive rights”, but rather a man who believed in the human rights of all people; including the Unborn. Most (if not all) African-American civil-rights leaders in his day agreed with him.
Get Doug Giles’ new book:
Rules For Radical Christians is not a survival devotional designed to help the young Christian adult limp through life. Rather, it is a road-tested, dominion blueprint that will equip the young adult with leadership skills and sufficient motivation to rise to a place of influence in an overtly non-Christian culture. Rules For Radical Christians gives the reader the keys to become strategically equipped to move into an anti-theistic environment and effectively influence it for the glory of God.
