All women have the right to control their fertility in the U.S. However, this was not always the case. And there is a contingent of Black men that resent and attack Planned Parenthood as being a racist organization started by Margaret Sanger, a woman who they believe promoted the death of Black babies and the elimination of the Black race.
Our discussion tonight will revolve around the recent decision (and reversal) by the Susan G. Komen foundation to elminate their annual grant to Planned Parenthood. We will also discuss the reason the so-called "black nationalists" are up in arms about Planned Parenthood and believe that organization was established solely as a tool to be used to eradication black babies, and therefore the Black race.
However, with hundreds of thousands of Black children abandoned into the foster care system in this country, the poverty, and the educational gap between poor Blacks and the middle class, is controlling one's fertility really that far off base?
Are Black women to be denied the right to decide when they should have a child, or if they should have one at all to fulfill the role black men have for women to breed more babies? What is the true goal of such a demand?
Call in to 347-327-9215 on Saturday, February 4, 2012 to share your thoughts on black women, black children, and Planned Parenthood.
