Abortion rights advocates are disturbed. Spelman College professor Beverly Guy-Sheftall called the strategy a gimmick.
"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."
How very interesting that a history teacher would make a comment like that. Your first statement is correct, Professor - many black people do not know who is Margaret Sanger, but your second is incorrect. They should know who Margaret Sanger is, and you, ma'am, are likely a hypocrite because I am quite sure you teach that people like Jessie Helms were terrible racists , it was convenient because they were not attached to a liberal institution as Margaret Sanger is to Planned Parenthood.
Since 1973, 9,000,000+ reported abortions have been performed on African-American women. Tuskagee University, who maintains statistics on lynchings against Blacks, reports that between 1882 and 1959, there has been a total of 4,733 lynchings. There's your history.
