Santorum Goes After Planned Parenthood

Republican presidential contender Rick Santorum suggested Tuesday that Planned Parenthood is a bigger threat than the Confederate flag, according to The Huffington Post.

"You want to go back and take down the Confederate flag? Let’s take down Planned Parenthood," the former Pennsylvania senator said during a radio interview on the “Simon Conway Show” in Iowa.

The program host mentioned the recent release of a video that shows a Planned Parenthood official admitting that the organization sells body parts from aborted fetuses. That prompted Santorum to launch into an attack on the organization, once again linking it with the flag issue.

“Planned Parenthood has continued to do disgusting things, from killing little children in the womb, to now selling their body parts and harvesting them,” he said. “If you want to scrub all racism from America, let’s start with Planned Parenthood because it was started by a racist named Margaret Sanger, who was a eugenist, who was someone that believed in the separation of the races, someone that started Planned Parenthood for the purpose of culling out the undesirables, including blacks in America.”

According to The Huffington Post, that version of the organization’s history “has been proven largely false.” The website reported that “Sanger did not suggest certain races were inferior.”
