If fans flipped on their TVs hoping for an escape from the madness of 2020, the return of major league baseball wasn't it. Americans who tuned in to Friday's season openers, desperate for a return to something normal, were forced to witness another protest: the players'. In some ballparks, like the Washington Nationals, the politically-charged messaging was everywhere -- from the Black Lives Matter "unity" ribbons to the "BLM" stenciled on the back of the pitchers' mound. But when the entire league is kneeling, it only takes one player to stand out. And for the Giants' Sam Coonrod, there was never any question.

“Cancel Culture” Cancels One of its Own

Planned Parenthood of Greater New York announced Tuesday that they will remove Margaret Sanger’s name from their clinic.  Their board’s chair, Karen Seltzer, stated:

“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.”

We couldn’t agree more. The pro-life movement has persistently brought attention to Sanger’s racist motives. She was not shy about her intentions of eradicating minority populations and people with disabilities. She aligned herself with eugenicists who were actively researching how to do just that.
