MIAMI (ChurchMilitant.com) - Planned Parenthood is pushing its eugenicist agenda in two poor, predominantly black and Hispanic Miami neighborhoods.

The abortion giant's local staff members are knocking on approximately 25,000 doors over the next six weeks in Little Haiti and Little Havana — telling residents they are at risk for contracting the Zika virus. Residents in the two neighborhoods are 80–90 percent black and Latino/Hispanic with a median income of about $17,000 per year.

They are passing out "Zika prevention kits," including bug spray, water treatment tablets, condoms and other prophylactics. The head of Planned Parenthood of South, East and North Florida commented, "You'd be surprised how many women we are finding don't even know that Zika is sexually transmitted. We are stepping in because there is an urgent need here."

 

Zika has become the pet epidemic of population control advocates like President Barack Obama, who is using it as an excuse to dump even more federal money to abortion providers like Planned Parenthood. In February, he asked Congress for $1.8 billion towards research, education and contraception. Senator Harry Reid of Nevada joined in, asking for the money to be granted as quickly as possible. "We also need to make sure that our nation's response to the virus includes increasing access to contraceptives for women in Zika-affected regions who choose to use them."

In February, ChurchMilitant.com reported that the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) found no link between the Zika virus and the sudden increase in birth defects in South America since 2014.

Medical studies released in June noted, "Preliminary surveillance data in Colombia suggest that maternal infection with the Zika virus during the third trimester of pregnancy is not linked to structural abnormalities in the fetus."

A CDC spokesman concluded, "[D]ata from Colombia suggest that Zika virus infection during the third trimester of pregnancy is not linked to birth defects like microcephaly."

Doctors in Brazil and Argentina are pointing to larvicide as the cause of the recent surge in birth defects in Brazil. Starting from a single incident of microcephaly in a town in Brazil at the beginning of May 2015, the number has now grown to 4,000 cases in this town alone, where Pyriproxyfen — a larvicide — is widely used.

Despite recent medical studies and the CDC's own conclusions, the CDC recently advocated a program to encourage condom use among American school students to fend off the infection.

The majority of Planned Parenthood's clinics are in poor, non-white neighborhoods. Its founder, Margaret Sanger, is noted for calling immigrants "human weeds," "reckless breeders," "spawning ... human beings who never should have been born."
