Group To Launch 'Defund 'Klanned' Parenthood' Campaign


WASHINGTON  -- Members of the Christian Defense Coalition and other groups plan to bring focus to their belief that Planned Parenthood was founded on the principles of Margaret Sanger who was a racist and Ku Klux Klan supporter.

Organizations will be calling for Congress to defund Planned Parenthood and stop giving billions of public dollars to a group with what they call 'racist roots'.


The groups will are holding a news conference to formerly announce the "Defund 'Klanned' Parenthood" campaign in conjunction with a demonstration at Planned Parenthood in Washington, D.C. on Saturday, April 30 at 10:00 A.M.

As part of their campaign they will cover the entire lawn of Planned Parenthood with white sheets, a longtime symbol of the KKK.

Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, Director of the Christian Defense Coalition, states;

"We are launching 'Defund 'Klanned' Parenthood' to expose the reality that Planned Parenthood founder, Margaret Sanger, was a racist who supported the agenda of the Ku Klux Klan, spoke at their events and wanted to reduce the number of African-Americans.

"We are calling upon the members of Congress, who have given billions of public money to Planned Parenthood over the years, to defund this group whose roots are racist, bigoted and extremist.

"Our tax dollars should be given to groups that have embraced human rights, equality and justice for all. They should not be given to organizations founded by racists who embraced the agenda and philosophy of the KKK."

Kristina Garza, Campus Outreach Director for Survivors, comments;
"Planned Parenthood cannot deny its embarrassing racist history. In a society that prides itself on equality and diversity, Planned Parenthood continues a tradition of discrimination and hate toward women and children of minority backgrounds.

"It is time for our generation to wake up and come out from under their apathy and indifference and take action to "Defund 'Klanned' Parenthood. Like the civil rights workers of the 50's and 60's, this generation will speak out with passion to end racism and bigotry."
