See Former Planned Parenthood official to lead attempt to reduce black infant mortality — Given that the #1 cause of death for blacks is abortion and that the abortion rate in the black community is 3x that of whites, the best way for her to help blacks would be to tell her former employer to stop doing abortions.
With the mortality rate for black Wisconsin infants among the highest and most unrelenting in the nation, that state’s largest public university has become co-manager of a $10 million grant to help prevent baby deaths.
Like the Northern Manhattan Perinatal Partnership, the Wisconsin effort is “based on the assumption that the problem of African-American infant mortality extends back through the entire life course of African-American females,” said Dr. Philip Farrell, a semi-retired neonatologist, former University of Wisconsin medical school dean and co-chairman of the Lifecourse Initiative for Healthy Families steering committee.
“We’re hoping this investment will allow us to attract and leverage more dollars so that we can support even more interventions,” said Lorraine Lathen, a global health consultant, program leader of the Lifecourse Initiative and the university’s chief partner in the project. “We’re looking at the non-health-related situations that can lead to poor birth outcomes. Our project is really focused on systems change, looking at increasing access to health care for women throughout their life span, not just waiting until they become pregnant.”
“There are multiple causes for the disparity, perhaps a dozen factors that we believe strongly influence pregnancy outcomes,” [Farrell] said, adding that he is encouraged by the present momentum in Wisconsin’s assault against infant deaths.

This effort to reduce infant deaths is led by a woman who engaged in infant deaths at Planned Parenthood.

What black women WON’T hear about:
– Planned Parenthood’s role in aborting black babies, who are aborted at four times the rate of their numbers in the Wisconsin population;
– How Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, felt about the black people: “Colored people are like human weeds and are to be exterminated;”
– How abortions increase the risk of low birth weight in future pregnancies by a factor of three, and of premature birth by a factor of two [both factors in infant deaths.]
