Ben Watson Slams Planned Parenthood For Wanting To 'Exterminate Blacks' (JANICE WILLIAMS, 08/08/16, IB Times)

NFL player Ben Watson has made a radical charge against Planned Parenthood. The 35-year-old Baltimore Ravens tight end alleged Planned Parenthood was created to eliminate the black race while discussing how race factors into abortion during an interview with the Turning Point Pregnancy Resource Center, CBS Sports reported Sunday. 

"I wouldn't say I have any unique insight," he said. "I do know that blacks kind of represent a large portion of the abortions, and I do know that honestly the whole idea with Planned Parenthood and [Margaret] Sanger in the past was to exterminate blacks, and it's kind of ironic that it's working."

According to Watson, who has written lengthy and popular essays highlighting the many social injustices faced in the black community, Planned Parenthood is one of the biggest forces pushing minorities to get abortions.

"We [as minorities] support candidates, and overwhelmingly support the idea of having Planned Parenthood and the like, and yet, that is why she created it," Watson said. "We are buying it hook, line, and sinker, like it's a great thing. It's just amazing to me and abortion saddens me period, but it seems to be something that is really pushed on minorities and provided to minorities especially as something that they should do."

Over the years, Sanger has received a lot of criticism over her ideals about abortion and the black community. In the late 1930's, Sanger started "The Negro Project," which was aimed at providing abortion and pregnancy prevention services in the rural south. Her known support of the Nazi party's eugenics movement, the idea of improving the human race by encouraging reproduction based on specific genes, has led to backlash in recent years, the Washington Post reported.

"It makes no sense as a national policy to promote birth only among poor people," Ginsburg says.

This isn't the first time she's sounded in favor of eugenics. Ginsburg caused a stir in July 2009 when she made comments about the Roe v. Wade abortion case that appeared racist. In an interview with the New York Times, Ginsburg said made it appear she supported Roe for population control reasons targeting minorities. [...]

Ginsburg first advocated taxpayer funding of abortions and followed it up by saying she backed Roe to eliminate "populations that we don't want to have too many of."
