The call to Idaho came in July to Autumn Kersey, vice president of development and marketing for Planned Parenthood of Idaho.
On the recording provided by The Advocate, an actor portraying a donor said he wanted his money used to eliminate black unborn children because "the less black kids out there the better."
Kersey laughed nervously and said: "Understandable, understandable. ... 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."
This is, in a word, appalling. It's flagrantly racist, and Planned Parenthood should be ashamed. As Feministing notes, it plays right into the right-wing talking points about race and abortion. PP refuses to say whether it's taken any further action against the offending employee. Is there seriously any question over whether he should still have a job?
