From Fox News:
Planned Parenthood of Greater New York is removing the name of Margaret Sanger, the founder of the nation’s largest abortion provider, from its New York City clinic due to her “harmful connection to the eugenics movement,” the group said Tuesday.
The announcement comes after more than 350 current and former staffers at the Manhattan clinic, as well as 800 donors, supporters and volunteers, called Sanger “a racist, white woman.” An open letter on June 18 to Planned Parenthood of Greater New York, criticized the organization as “steeped in white supremacy,” the Washington Times reports.
For decades, pro-life activists pointed out Sanger’s racism, but in the wake of the Black Lives Matter movement, Planned Parenthood said it is addressing the problem.
“The removal of Margaret Sanger’s name from our building is both a necessary and overdue step to reckon with our legacy and acknowledge Planned Parenthood’s contributions to historical reproductive harm within communities of color,” Karen Seltzer, the chair of the New York affiliate’s board, said in a statement.

PARTING SHOT: Planned Parenthood RIPS Nikki Haley, Says ‘No Foreign Policy Experience’
Planned Parenthood took a partisan parting shot at US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley just minutes after announcing her impending resignation; trashing the top diplomat for having “no formal foreign policy experience” and “blocking” women’s access to healthcare.
The left-wing organization fired-off the incendiary tweet Tuesday after President Trump officially accepted Haley’s letter of resignation, posting “Nikki Haley — who has a long track record of blocking women’s access to health care and has no formal foreign policy experience — has resigned as UN ambassador.”

Planned Parenthood made national headlines just days ago after federal filings showed the organization donated vast sums of money to key Democrats serving on the Senate Judiciary Committee.
REPORT: Planned Parenthood Gave $120K to Dems on Judiciary Committee, $0 to GOP
A stunning financial report shed new light on Planned Parenthood’s staggering influence inside the Senate Judiciary Committee this week; revealing the organization’s political action committee and its supporters donated big bucks to Democrats and nothing to Republicans ahead of Kavanaugh’s confirmation battle.
According to CNS News, Planned Parenthood’s PAC, employees, and their family members gave over $126,000 to Democrats currently on the Senate Judiciary Committee; compared to $0.00 to Republican members.
“Planned Parenthood–which, as the nation’s largest abortion provider performed 321,384 abortions in fiscal 2016–has given Democratic Senate Judiciary Committee members a total of $29,961 in 2018 alone,” writes Emily Ward.
The report adds that all ten Democratic members of the Committee received political contributions at some point from Planned Parenthood’s PAC.
The revelation comes as the Senate moves to hold a final vote on Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination within days; setting the stage for a high-stakes showdown between Democrats and Republicans over the potential Justice’s political future.
