YouTuber Karim Jovian asked the New Yorker what he thought about abortion.
One of the New Yorkers turned out to be Alexander Sanger, the former president of the planned parent-child relationship.
Sanger told Jobian that banning abortion would put women at risk.
YouTuber was surprised that one of the strangers asking about abortion on the street was familiar with the subject.
In the video Karim Jovi posted on Tiktok and Youtube, one of the New Yorkers approaching the day before the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the Roe v. Wade case. Coincidentally, it was Alexander Sanger, the former president of the planned parent-child relationship.
“Do you know who you are interviewing?” Sanger asks Jupiter. “I’m Alexander Sanger. I’m the former President of the Planned Parent-Child Relationship in New York. My grandmother was Margaret Sanger, the founder of the Planned Parent-Child Relationship.”
Margaret Sanger founded Planned Parenthood in New York in 1916. As a fertility advocate, she traveled all over Europe to study contraceptive methods and established the American Birth Control League in 1921.
Sanger’s grandson told Jobian, “You can’t get rid of an abortion by criminalizing it. All you have to do is put it at risk.”
“You put women at risk. Poor women, colored women, women who do not have the benefits of the middle class, wealthy women who travel somewhere and have an abortion,” he said.
“It’s discriminatory, unfair, unsafe, and to me it’s a complete anger towards women,” Sanger added.
His wife, Janet Watson, who stood beside Sanger during the interview, told Jobian that she questioned having an abortion during pregnancy.
“Did you think I could have an abortion when I became pregnant?” Watson said. “As you know, it’s very difficult.”
