Chaldeans4Life Shining Light on Planned Parenthood Move to Pontiac
By Angie Yono :: Wednesday, April 22, 2009 :: 52817 Views :: Government & Society

Michigan, USA – “Isn’t it curious that they always move into areas where there is a high population of African Americans and the poor.  They don’t care about helping families.  They care about making sure that those they consider the leeches of society don’t reproduce,” says Mary Khami a member of Chaldeans4Life in Southfield.  

Planned Parenthood opened two new centers in minority dense areas of Detroit and Warren and now wishes to add a third center in Pontiac Michigan.  Planned Parenthood continues to face challenges after internal workers and undercover investigative reporters’ revealed Planned Parenthoods bias towards targeting the abortion of minority babies. states on their website that “Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in America. 78% of their clinics are in minority communities. Blacks make up 12% of the population, but 35% of the abortions in America. Are we being targeted? Isn't that genocide? We are the only minority in America that is on the decline in population. If the current trend continues, by 2038 the black vote will be insignificant. Did you know that the founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, was a devout racist who created the Negro Project designed to sterilize unknowing black women and others she deemed as undesirables of society? The founder of Planned Parenthood said, "Colored people are like human weeds and are to be exterminated." Is her vision being fulfilled today?”
Khami is outraged that Planned Parenthood is attempting to move into another minority dominated impoverished city in Michigan.  “They prey on weak minorities who are unable to defend themselves.  They spend a significant amount of money on buying politicians and spend practically nothing on offering alternative options to abortion.  This is a modern day holocaust.”  

Planned Parenthood quietly held an organization fundraiser lunch in Troy.  Though small in size the influence and political purchase of Planned Parenthood remains impressive.   Planned Parenthood does not currently have a presence in Oakland County and said Lori Lamerand, president and chief executive officer of the mid Michigan franchise of Planned Parenthood.  

Khami disputes Lamerand’s claim that there is no other organization in Oakland County offering subsidized care for family planning.  “Practically every catholic and Christian church and associated charity offers free family services that include planning and education.  They just don’t offer abortions and that is what Lamerand wants.  She wants facilities to kill babies.  There is not one Planned Parenthood facility that offers options, counseling, or guidance for adoption.  

Contrary to public sentiments or statements by Planned Parenthood, such facilities do receive tax payer money to fund their operations says Khami.  “On paper there is both federal and Michigan laws that prohibit taxpayer financing of Planned Parenthood's murder of unborn children via abortion, but taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood's other services provide the needed money to subsidize minority abortion.  They want to go into poor areas, because that is where they get money for their supposed other services from taxpayers.”  

When confronted with the choice argument Khami scoffs.  “Murder is not a choice.  The choice was to take precautions before you got pregnant, not kill the baby, which is a consequence.  The choice they want is less poor black, hispanic, or retarded babies that they believe drain society resources.  Anyone who uses the argument of choice is disingenuous.  I bet they are not fighting for school choice. Let them spend some of their political bribes to get school choice for kids.  

Planned Parenthood financial statements show a significant portion of their operating expenses from taxpayer funds and donations.  “Mostly white donors give to Planned Parenthood because they see irresponsible children having babies that they feel they will have to care for through welfare or other social services.  So it is cheaper to kill them when they are young before it cost more in what they believe will be welfare, crime prevention, and bad cholesterol in education,” says Khami.  

Ironically the group awarded Bloomfield Hills resident Julie Fisher, a high school teacher in Illinois, Fisher said to a newspaper that she saw many of her young students become pregnant. In one school, she said there was more than one 14-year-old ninth-grade teenager who became pregnant for the second time.

“So when my peers ask me, ‘Why Planned Parenthood? Why is it our fight?’ I’ll tell them and I’ll tell you, it’s because of those kids,” Fisher said. “I have witnessed firsthand how important Planned Parenthood’s mission is. I feel fortunate to be part of such an important and vital organization.”
