Planned Parenthood Pink: Mother’s Day Massacre and Beyond
Abortion’s underbelly is raw and oozing filth. Festering in that underbelly are a host of unacceptable, even squalid facilities, that one former abortion center worker says “even the demons in hell are not exposed to”. Like others in America’s elite community, abortionists have no qualms in experimenting on women of color – subjecting them to the same hazardous and squalid conditions some claim were eradicated when abortion moved out of the back alley and into the centers that dot Black and Latino neighborhoods.
One such experiment was the "Mother’s Day Massacre” Harvey Karman, an abortionist who faked his medical credentials, created a device called the supercoil that International Planned Parenthood paid him to test in Bangladesh. The experiment went awry and women were injured. In 1972, Karman joined Kermit Gosnell, who later ran Philadelphia’s house of horror , to try the device on American women. They bussed fifteen Black women in their second trimester of pregnancy from Chicago to Philadelphia. Once there, the ‘super coil’ was placed inside their wombs and nine of the fifteen were seriously injured. The supercoil, according to testimony to the grand jury in Gosnell’s 2013 murder trial, “…was a device that he and [Karman] were working on that was supposed to be plastic – basically plastic razors that were formed into a ball. All right. They were coated into a gel, so that they would remain closed. These would be inserted into the woman’s uterus. And after several hours of body temperature, it would then – the gel would melt and these 97 things would spring open, supposedly cutting up the fetus, and the fetus would be expelled.”
Gosnell fled the country for a while, vacationing in the Bahamas. Karman was prosecuted and did a short stint in jail for practicing medicine without a license. In 2008 when he died, one Planned Parenthood director celebrated him stating he did “more for safe abortion around the world than practically any other person in the world.” The fact that so many Black and Bangladeshi women were injured by his “invention” was of no concern to the purveyors of abortion. As America ‘s elite has done in most experiments on people of color (Tuskegee Syphilis Study 1932-1972; Puerto Rican Cancer Study – 1931), they quietly pushed the story to the back burner and abortionists continued plying their wares in squalid, unclean environments.
Planned Parenthood is one of those purveyors of abortion in unclean, sometimes squalid conditions. They target women of color. Like Gosnell, Planned Parenthood lures women of color into their facilities and their shoddy healthcare has resulted in the deaths and serious injury of women who trusted them with their “reproductive healthcare”. Once every few weeks, sidewalk counselors and prayer warriors report the increasing numbers of patients evacuated from a Planned Parenthood by ambulance: New York, Connecticut, Missouri, California, Illinois, Michigan, to name a few. When states dare to inspect Planned Parenthood facilities, many are cited for unsafe medical conditions including failure to wash hands between procedures and failure to sterilize instruments.
Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards spins a narrative that women of color will be denied access to reproductive healthcare if her organization loses the more than half billion dollars of taxpayer money they receive each and every year. She repeatedly ignores the fact that 79% or more of her surgical abortion facilities are located in the very neighborhoods where these women live and many of them do not provide the healthcare she claims these women will lose if taxpayer funds are reallocated. She ignores her own records that reveal Planned Parenthood: reached a half million fewer clients in the past six years; completed 60% fewer breast exams- less than 2% of America’s breast exams; and completed 77% fewer pap tests – less than 1% of America’s pap tests.
The only area where services increased have been in abortion - they perform almost 35% of them. Planned Parenthood has masqueraded in the cloak of women’s rights for far too long. Their services are steeped in abortion’s underbelly, and many of them operate in conditions just as squalid as those found in Kermit Gosnells’ house of horror. As the mother’s day massacre continues in Planned Parenthood abortion chambers across the nation, Black and Latino women must beware – their very lives and reproductive health depends on it.
