Planned Parenthood Refuses to Respond to Congressional Request for Information Regarding What Percentage of Abortions the Organization Performs on Women of Color
On March 11, 2019 Congressman Russ Fulcher (pictured) sent a letter to Planned Parenthood's President, Dr. Leana Wen, asking her to, "Please provide to me what percentage of abortions your organization performs on women of color."
In that March 11 letter, Congressman Fulcher stated, "Margaret Sanger embraced a philosophy of racial discrimination and eugenics." He goes on to say, "I must do all that I can to ensure her racist and eugenic policies are still not being implemented today."
In a letter sent to Dr. Wen on June 13, 2019, Congressman Fulcher shares, "It is most troubling that, after three months, I have not been given the courtesy of a response from you or your organization. I do not know the reason for your disregard of my request or the apparent lack of respect for the very institution responsible for allocating over 500 million dollars a year to Planned Parenthood."
Mr. Fulcher once again asks for Planned Parenthood to provide the percentage of abortions they perform on women of color and concludes with this stern warning. "If you chose not to respond, I will pursue all avenues available to me as a member of Congress to obtain this information." Click here for more.
