Do a search on Sanger at discover the networks.

http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/individualProfile.asp?indid=1816

Margaret Higgins Sanger was a radical feminist, eugenicist, Marxist, and the founder of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America.
...
According to her New York Times obituary, she sought to encourage birth control and/or abortion among “subnormal children.”
...
(1939) Sanger turned her attention specifically to the reproductive practices of black Americans. She selected former ABCL director Clarence J. Gamble (of the Procter and Gamble company) to become BCFA's southern regional director. That November, Gamble drew up a memorandum titled "Suggestion for Negro Project," whose ultimate aim was to decrease the black birth rate significantly. Anticipating that black leaders would be suspicious of anyone exhorting African Americans to have fewer children, Gamble suggested that BCFA place black leaders in high positions within the organization, so as to give the appearance that they were in charge of the group's agendas. BCFA presented birth control as a vehicle for the upward economic mobility of blacks.
---------------------------------------

More relevant today than racism in the previous century is the way abortion hits black babies now, killing them at a rate three times that of the white ones.  Imagine if that was a Republican policy!  What liberal over at Planned Parenthood or DNC or MSM has ever expressed concern much less outrage over that?

Attorneys for Apple Valley man argue fetus' death was an abortion
10/21/2013

When an Apple Valley woman died in March, her 15-week-old fetus, too young to survive outside the womb, died with her.

Margorie Holland's husband, Roger Holland, is charged with murder in the deaths. But with his trial scheduled for Monday, his attorneys are making a novel argument: The death of the fetus was an abortion, not a murder, and the only person whose rights that such an act could have violated -- the mother -- already was dead.

It seems to me that the longer you wait and the more you need to mull the decision over as the fetus develops, the more you admit there is another life involved.  At some point this goes from women's rights, rape victim, mistake etc. to ending an innocent life.  Can we all at least agree on that? 

The answer, according to the Supreme Court and this NY Times editorial, is NO:

Thanks to the judicial imperialism of SCOTUS in 1973, this issue has been dividing America ever since.  20 weeks seems quite a reasonable legal compromise to me.  That after all this time and societal turmoil SCOTUS cannot agree to even 20 weeks is profoundly discouraging.  The standard of survivability makes no sense at all because the point of reference changes as technology improves.  Surely even by the logic of the Choicers' argument the standard must have reference to the state of development of the zygote/fetus/baby?

It's called the 'Roe effect'.  A lot of the women that would be likely to abort at this point in time were themselves aborted under the rights established in the Roe decision.
