Did Hermain Cain lie about Planned Parenthood?

Consider Cain’s words here:

Schieffer also pushed Cain on his history of comments attacking Planned Parenthood as an organization that favors “genocide” in the black community — comments Cain said he still believes.

“I still stand by that,” Cain said. “If people go back and look at the history and look at Margaret Sanger’s own words, that’s exactly where that came from … What I’m saying is, Planned Parenthood isn’t sincere about wanting to try to counsel them not to have abortions.”

Those words are 100.00% accurate.  No lies there.  It is a fact that abortion rates in the black community are three times that of whites, and pro-legalized abortion voters and Planned Parenthood deeply desire taxpayer-funded abortions that are certain to increase that rate.  Therefore, the policies most dear to them result in the black population shrinking as a percent of the total.  Just imagine the outcry if Republicans supported policies that killed more blacks in a week than KKK has done since their inception.

But false teacher Chuck Currie says that  Herman Cain lied about Planned Parenthood Lie (and Chuck would know lying, I suppose).  But what of Cain’s claims?  PolitiFact quotes Cain here:

“When Margaret Sanger – check my history – started Planned Parenthood, the objective was to put these centers in primarily black communities so they could help kill black babies before they came into the world,” Cain said during a talk in Washington, D.C., at the Heritage Foundation, a conservative group.

“It’s planned genocide,” Cain added. He wants the U.S. Congress to yank funding for Planned Parenthood, which receives about $75 million a year to provide non-abortion health services.

Technically Cain may have been wrong on the precisely worded original goals of Planned Parenthood (although it it easy to see how proud Sanger would be of how many blacks PP aborts).  But even PolitiFact notes this, though they water down Sanger’s evils:

The supposed evidence that Sanger supported black genocide is a loose collection of her most objectionable statements, her ties to the disgraced eugenics movement, and her work on what was called the Negro Project. That effort, started in 1939, brought birth control services (but not abortion) to black communities in the South.

That’s not “supposed evidence,” that’s evidence.

And speaking of lies, why don’t Chuck & Co. criticize Planned Parenthood for their serial lies in hiding statutory rape?  Or their lies about offering mammograms?  Is lying bad, or not?

Truths: The greatest killer of black human beings in the U.S. is abortion.  The abortion rates in the U.S. mean the black population is a smaller part of the whole than it would be otherwise.  Democrats support this 100%.  Margaret Sanger, PP’s founder, aggressively worked to decrease the black population.

I’m going to side with Herman Cain over a false teacher and Planned Parenthood on this one.


More things to consider

Here’s one time when Planned Parenthood didn’t lie and when I agreed with them: “An abortion kills the life of a baby after it has begun.” Sadly, that was their view in this 1964 advertisement but they changed it when they realized how profitable abortions would be and how they could fulfill Margaret Sanger’s vision.

Regarding genocide: A pro-abort on Jim “the Gospel is all about wealth redistribution” Wallis‘ blog tried to insist that as a conservative and pro-lifer I was just trying to keep my majority.  I enjoyed pointing out that if I wanted to do that I would be just like her and fake Christians like Chuck: I would support Planned Parenthood, I would oppose crisis pregnancy centers and I would vote for Democrats.

  1. Hi Neil,

    I have been away from blogging for about 11 days and have missed a lot of what has been going on concerning Herman Cain and his position on abortion. I did see the video clip where he was interviewed by a leftist news reporter where there was some confusion about whether or not Cain discussed “choice” and what he meant by that comment. These days, video clips can omit the important facts stated either before or after what was said in the clip. Are you familiar with what Cain meant in that interview?

    I also saw Cain’s appearance at the Faith and Values? Conference on C-Span where he stated emphatically that he was pro-life, end of story. But the audience didn’t cheer for him as fervently as most conservative groups have done in the past. Was it because of that video clip that went viral and caused pro-life Conservative Christians to begin to doubt him? I must admit that I was very disappointed when I saw that clip – and I viewed it several times. Perhaps it was one of those “gotcha” moments hurled against Cain?


  2. I am dismayed that Romney is the front runner for the GOP nomination. I don’t trust him AT ALL! So, when Herman Cain began rising in the polls it brought me hope (the real kind – not the ObaMAO type!). However, when Cain’s position on abortion seemed to lean towards “choice,” I got the same sick feeling that I had about Obama back in 2008.

    It is unfortunate that politics is such a dirty, disgusting fight for any conservative candidate. It will probably get worse, too. But I cannot vote in the primary for someone (even Cain – who I like a lot) who is not 100% pro-life! I won’t do it!!

    It is sad that allegations of sexual harrassment (apparently false as Cain denied them on Fox News this morning) against Cain have gone out there too. Politics is so ugly. No wonder Sarah Palin didn’t run for president in this election! Her family has endured enough hate from the left already!
