Many Twitter users say the Planned Parenthood 501(c)4 Black Community account embraced the abortion business’s eugenics roots Tuesday when it advised, “If you’re a Black woman in America, it’s statistically safer to have an abortion than to carry a pregnancy to term or give birth.”
The account, which identifies itself with Planned Parenthood Action Fund, tweeted:
If you're a Black woman in America, it's statistically safer to have an abortion than to carry a pregnancy to term or give birth #ScaryStats

Planned Parenthood was founded by eugenicist Margaret Sanger, who wrote in The Pivot of Civilization:
Everywhere we see poverty and large families going hand in hand. Those least fit to carry on the race are increasing most rapidly.
