'In an unusual display of self-criticism, a Planned Parenthood student group at the University of Florida hosted an event Wednesday to discuss the racist roots of the organization as well as the eugenics of founder Margaret Sanger.
“Come join Planned Parenthood Generation Action for a panel discussion on the racist roots of Planned Parenthood during Black History Month,” read the Facebook announcement of the event bearing the title “Decolonizing Sexual Health.”
“Our subject is addressing the racist roots of the birth control movement, specifically pertaining to the influence of eugenics,” the post continues. “Margaret Sanger, Planned Parenthood’s founder, is a controversial figure in this conversation because despite her devotion to reproductive rights, she also had beliefs, practices, and associations with eugenics that we acknowledge and denounce, and work to rectify today.”
Organizers said that the event was meant “to open a conversation about the decolonization of sexual health and how resources are disproportionally inaccessible to folks based on demographics.”
According to a number of Planned Parenthood critics, however, the problem is not the inaccessibility of abortion services to minority communities, but rather its opposite: the targeting of minority communities—which seems to fit with the original racist aims of the organization.
In a statement sent to Breitbart News, the president of Students for Life of America, Kristan Hawkins, said that while acknowledging the racist roots of Planned Parenthood is an important first step, it is ultimately meaningless “unless you also acknowledge that the racist practices of Planned Parenthood continue to this day, since Planned Parenthood continues to target black and Hispanic babies for abortion by the placement of their abortion vendor locations in minority neighborhoods.”'
