Planned Parenthood sets up abortion clinics in black neighborhoods to "control that population," GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson said Wednesday.
"I know who [Planned Parenthood founder] Margaret Sanger is," Carson said on Fox News Channel's "Your World with Neil Cavuto."
"I know that she believed in eugenics and that she was not particularly enamored with black people."
Sanger's writings indicated that she viewed some races as inferior, though she worked with African-Americans in her projects.
"Look and see what many people in Nazi Germany thought of her," Carson said.
Cavuto asked Carson about his views on defunding Planned Parenthood in the light of a recent series of videos
showing abortion doctors discussing the sale of fetal tissue.
Carson said he is willing to have a discussion about when life begins.
"Certainly once the heart starts beating. Certainly at that point," he said. "If we are willing to open up the discussion, both sides, I think we can come to accommodation."
