Talking Points Memo: Herman Cain: Planned Parenthood Should Be Called 'Planned Genocide'

March 16, 2011- Presidential aspirant and former pizza tycoon Herman Cain did not mince words when criticizing Planned Parenthood on Tuesday, saying the organization would be more aptly described as 'planned genocide.'

Speaking to a group of reporters at the conservative Heritage Foundation, Cain said he supported fully defunding Planned Parenthood -- as House Republicans have sought to do with their budget bill -- because, he claimed, the organization was founded with the goal of killing black babies before they were born.

"Here's why I support de-funding Planned Parenthood, because you don't hear a lot of people talking about this, when Margaret Sanger - check my history - started Planned Parenthood, the objective was to put these centers in primarily black communities so they could help kill black babies before they came into the world," Cain, who is African American, was quoted as saying to

"You don't see that talked that much about," he was also quoted as saying. "It's not Planned Parenthood. No, it's planned genocide. You can quote me on that."

Cain then went on to say that Planned Parenthood doesn't do any planning, "other than to abort the baby."
