Last month, Alexis McGill Johnson, the current president of Planned Parenthood, penned a New York Times Op-Ed in which she claimed, “We’re done making excuses for our founder.”

That founder, of course, is the early 20th century racist eugenicist Margaret Sanger, who made contraception and abortion targeted at culling the “unfit” from society her life’s work.

McGill’s non-apology was a not-entirely surprising move as wokeness became the dominant theme in civil (and not-so-civil) discourse following the death of George Floyd in 2020. Even via her acknowledgement, McGill — herself a black woman, who has spoken about “growing up with Black Nationalist parents who taught her to embrace the African and black American experience” — artfully dodges the worst of Sanger’s racism, saying instead that “her legacy on race has been debated” and that “the facts are complicated.”

Praise the Lord
