The “Gates of Hell” movie project by Molotov Mitchell of Illuminati Pictures has captured part of the stage in the developing controversy over the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure Foundation’s decision to stop donating to the nation’s biggest abortion industry player, Planned Parenthood.
The Komen Foundation explained earlier this week that it wasn’t going to donate to organizations that are under investigation for their activities. Planned Parenthood is under investigation in several venues. Komen later issued a statement changing course again, saying it would give to the abortion business again.
The movie was noted in an Examiner report on the blowup between the breast cancer-fighting organization and Planned Parenthood.
“Planned Parenthood has been also under scrutiny by some members of the African-American community because of the high proportion of abortions being performed on Black women,” the report said. “Film maker Molotov Mitchell, who recently produced the film, ‘Gates of Hell’ has alleged that Planned Parenthood from its inception, under the direction of Margaret Sander (sic), targeted Black and minority women. It has also been targeted by The National Black Catholic Congress.”
Mitchell earlier told WND the film explores the black genocide pursued by Planned Parenthood in an entirely different light.
“If it is indeed true that the black community is being targeted for extinction today, this is like major political thriller stuff,” he said.
He noted Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger’s views of race, her work on the Negro Project and mounting evidence that abortion clinics are disproportionately distributed among black and minority communities as evidence of an underlying conspiracy. At one time, Mitchell points out, civil-rights leaders were at the forefront of sounding the alarm over abortion’s “racist” agenda.
He said today that ultimately the “racial components, the racial directives of Planned Parenthood will be its undoing. And the more that people become aware that Planned Parenthood is racist, and racially driven to exterminate the Black population and has always been driven since their founding, Planned Parenthood finally will be done.”
He continued, “There’s nothing more radioactive than the word racist. It’s fortunate for pro-lifers that Planned Parenthood has such a huge Achilles heel in that they are racist from their origins to the present.”
Officials with Planned Parenthood did not respond to messages requesting comment.
In published website statements the abortion company has said officials are “alarmed and saddened” that the Komen Foundation would “have succumbed to political pressure.”
“Anti-choice groups in America have repeatedly threatened the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation for partnering with Planned Parenthood … and news articles suggest that the Komen Foundation ultimately succumbed to these pressures,” the group stated.
Planned Parenthood supporters rallied to attack Komen, from trying to block permits for its parades to accusing Komen of abandoning women’s health interests.
But Mitchell said the racism of Planned Parenthood is a “skeleton in the closet” that the abortion business would not want publicized. So pro-life activists need to expose it, he said.
Noting there’s no defense for racism, he said, “I really believe the ‘Gates of Hell’ approach is the most effective approach that we can utilize at this juncture. We have to present the facts and allow people to connect the dots.”
Planned Parenthood critics constantly note the high number of abortion clinics in minority and black communities and their relative scarcity in affluent and white suburbs.
But the racism is evident even in recent incidents.
It was just a few years ago that Planned Parenthood was caught on tape agreeing to take a donation for an abortion that would destroy an unborn black child specifically.
It was uncovered through the work of Lila Rose, then editor of the Los Angeles-based Advocate and now chief of Live Action, which goes undercover to document the activities of abortion providers.
In a taped interview, an Idaho official for Planned Parenthood said it was “understandable” that a donor would want to contribute to abortions targeting blacks so that his own, presumably white, child would have less competition in college.
Actor: I want to specify that abortion to help a minority group, would that be possible?
Planned Parenthood: Absolutely.
Actor: Like the black community for example?
Planned Parenthood: Certainly.
Actor: The abortion – I can give money specifically for a black baby, that would be the purpose?
Planned Parenthood: Absolutely. If you wanted to designate that your gift be used to help an African-American woman in need, then we would certainly make sure that the gift was earmarked for that purpose.
Actor: Great, because I really faced trouble with affirmative action, and I don’t want my kids to be disadvantaged against black kids. I just had a baby; I want to put it in his name.
Planned Parenthood: Yes, absolutely.
Actor: And we don’t, you know we just think, the less black kids out there the better.
Planned Parenthood: (Laughs) Understandable, understandable.
Actor: Right. I want to protect my son, so he can get into college.
Planned Parenthood: All right. Excuse my hesitation, this is the first time I’ve had a donor call and make this kind of request, so I’m excited, and want to make sure I don’t leave anything out.
At that time, Day Gardner, president of the National Black Pro-Life Union, said, “African-Americans are having abortions at a hugely disproportionate rate according to their population, and Planned Parenthood has no shame whatsoever in accepting money that specifically targets our community.”
The audio was posted on YouTube, which later censored it.
Sanger supported eugenics through birth control to cull people she considered unfit from the population. In 1921, she said eugenics is “the most adequate and thorough avenue to the solution of racial, political and social problems.”
At one point, Sanger lamented “the ever increasing, unceasingly spawning class of human beings who never should have been born at all.” Another time, Sanger wrote, “We do not want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population.”
The National Black Catholic Congress also has weighed in on the issue, challenging its members to choose the cause of death most costly to the black community, since 1973.
“Think about it for a minute. Is it heart disease – 2,266,789 deaths since 1973, cancer – 1,638,350, or accidents – 370,723? It is AIDS – 203,695, or violent crimes – 306,313? There is one possibility that is often overlooked. It happens 1,452 times a day in our community. It has taken over 13 million Black lives within the last 30 years. It has taken 1/3 of our present population. What is it? ABORTION!”
The group continued, “The CDC reports that of the approximately 4,000 abortions that are performed daily in the United States, 1,452 of them are performed on African American women and their pre-born children. This means that although African Americans represent only 12 percent of the population in the United States, they account for 35 percent of the abortions,” the report said.
Mitchell said his documentary’s trailer is shocking and provocative, which is what trailers are supposed to be:
And he said his work is not a call to violence.
“I’m not espousing the murder of anybody,” Mitchell told WND. “The film is not a call to arms; it’s a political thriller. The topic of black genocide, the cover-up, the conspiracy – we were shooting for (pun intended) great art, great entertainment.”
