From the Publisher
Thoroughly researched, carefully written, and comprehensively documented, "Grand Illusions" has already made its mark as the single best-selling volume of all time on Planned Parenthood's role in the controversial matters of abortion and sex education. No other book has so thoroughly surveyed the divisive issues, dominating personalities, legal and judicial precedents, educational and political initiatives, social consequences, and global impact of this organization and the great debates it has engendered worldwide. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product Description

Pro-lifers are unarmed without Grand Illusions: no joke.
While it was encouraging Blacks and Hispanics to limit their families, the organization well into the 1960's, was encouraging white middle class familes "Let us help you plan your next child" and openly infered that they wanted clients to have large families. Decriminalization of birth control and relegalization of Abortion broadened the organization's mission and the women of color health movement pioneered a multifaced class-concious lens through which to work.
Ironically, the standard of measurement blindly advocated in this book would also require public schools and accomodations to be under attack with the same venom, because they also had several policies now recognized as elitist.
Disagree with Sanger if you must, but don't run around confusing the current organization with earlier operations.
This book is may be pro-life, but it is unfortunately not pro-truth. It is progaganda.
