Planned Parenthood of Greater New York announced Tuesday that it’s disassociating from its founder, Margaret Sanger, for her “racist legacy” and view on eugenics. But pro-life advocates say that despite dropping her name, the abortion business is carrying on her legacy.

Planned Parenthood of Greater New York announced it will remove Sanger’s name from its buildings and a street sign and both will be renamed, according to PPGNY’s statement.
