The Mormon problem with Planned Parenthood

The push to defund Planned Parenthood is not new. As the nation’s largest provider of abortions today, Planned Parenthood has been under attack since eugenicist Margaret Sanger breathed life into it in 1916. It began as her effort at population control. She figured that if “inferior” people could be convinced (or forced) to stop having children, humanity’s future would be bright.
