Bad Choices

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton received Planned Parenthood’s highest honor—the 2009 Margaret Sanger Award in Houston on March 27, 2009 at a gala, which took place just a few blocks from the construction site of America’s largest-ever abortion facility. Clinton was lauded as a “champion of women’s health and rights throughout her public service career.”

Planned Parenthood is of course, an organization whose founder Margaret Sanger embraced ideological Eugenics and targeted “the unfit” for “extinction.” Recently, Planned Parenthood has been involved in serial statutory rape cover-ups, fraud, and has petitioned for the construction of abortion clinics under false pretenses.

Its very name, the Margaret Sanger Award, is a tribute to a woman whose whole life’s mission was to “build a race of thoroughbreds” and "eliminate human weeds." Planned Parenthood’s long campaign to promote unregulated abortion on request, celebration of sexual libertinism, Eugenic racism, and revolutionary human callousness is, according to the Family Research Council, "the worst foreign policy message our nation could send."

Agreed. Alas, now the insidious organization has crowned the Secretary of State as their anointed messenger.
