NEW YORK, May 19 ( – The pro-life group STOPP International yesterday called on Planned Parenthood to “stop mocking God.” STOPP was taking aim at PP’s intent to highlight religious support of abortion this year, a plan it announced at its annual meeting last November.

Jim Sedlak, director of STOPP, noted that Rev. Howard Moody, minister emeritus of Judson Memorial Church in New York, was presented with the Margaret Sanger Award earlier this year.  Furthermore, Planned Parenthood of Amarillo, Texas is scheduled to have Dr. Daniel McGee, a religion professor from Baylor Baptist University, speak at its annual fund raising luncheon today.

It seems PP is sticking to the modus operandi of its founder Margaret Sanger who, as part of her “Negro project,” designed to eliminate members of what she called an “inferior race,”  publicly admitted her intent to hire three or four black Ministers “to travel to various black enclaves to propagandize for birth control.” (Woman’s Body, Woman’s Right: pg.332)

In Sanger’s opinion, “the most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the Minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.” (Killer Angel: George Grant: Reformed Press: p 74)

Sedlak called on all Christians, as well as people of other faiths, to join in opposing the work of Planned Parenthood. “This is an organization,” he said, “that opposes every one of the Ten Commandments. For it to pose as a group deserving religious support is nothing less than an outright mocking of God’s laws. We must take a stand now.”
