Planned Parenthood Document Casts Doubt About Its Real Motives
Contact: Anthony Horvath, Athanatos Christian Ministries, 202-697-4623, director@athanatosministries.org

GREENWOOD, Wis., April 29, 2016 /Christian Newswire/ -- A 1969 document produced by a former vice-president of Planned Parenthood suggests the organization cares less about women and minorities than it does in controlling their fertility.

Then president of the Population Council, Bernard Berelson, asked Planned Parenthood vice-president, Frederick Jaffe, for ideas on how to reduce America's population. The infamous response has come to be known as "The Jaffe Memo."

Dr. Anthony Horvath, a pro-life advocate and executive director of a Christian apologetics ministry, Athanatos Christian Ministries, tracked down the complete memorandum written by Jaffe and sent to Bernard Berelson, and has made it available at www.jaffememo.com.

The memo calls into question Planned Parenthood's real reasons for promoting birth control and abortion on demand.

Horvath says, "Planned Parenthood paints itself as an organization that advocates for women's rights, but the Jaffe Memo proves that they were more than willing to dispense with such ideals in a pinch. The memo actually suggests that women be forced--actually compelled--to get abortions. So much for 'pro-choice.'"

Other proposals that they considered worthy of consideration included adding fertility control agents to the water supply and forcibly sterilizing people who have more than two children. The organization even contemplated forcing women to work, and then ensure that there were few child care facilities.

"The idea was to make women choose between a family and their career. If child care was scarce and expensive, women would make the 'right' call and have smaller families. The goal was to get women to do what Planned Parenthood wanted them to do, but have the women think it was their own idea," Horvath explains.

Horvath says, "If there really is a 'war on women,' documents like the Jaffe Memo suggest that perhaps it is Planned Parenthood and its allies that are the ones carrying it out."

To make matters worse, Jaffe cataloged which proposals would have more impact on certain racial groups.

According to Horvath, "Black communities have long been suspicious about the number of abortion clinics in their neighborhood. The 'Jaffe Memo' suggests that those suspicions are well-founded. If I were a woman or a black person, I'd worry less about Cruz and Trump, and worry more about my supposed 'allies,' like Planned Parenthood, with its continued demand for Federal funding."
