Letter sent to pro-life group from pro-choice person reveals eugenics is alive and well in America
In September, pro-lifers in Texas received a very disturbing letter promoting pure unadulterated eugenics.
According to Jim Graham Executive Director of Texas Right to Life, when Texas Right to Life participated in a pro-Life townhall in Beaumont, Texas, voters went to their cars to go home and found the disturbing message on their vehicles.
The letter said that they needed to “wake up” because unwanted babies “cost us billions of dollars every year!”
The letter begins with the all to well-known Planned Parenthood (paraphrased) slogan, it reads, “Babies deserve to be wanted and loved.” It implies that an unwanted child is automatically going to become a criminal. What nonsense.
What most people and the writer of this letter may no know is that the the origin of Planned Parenthood’s oft repeated slogan “Every child a wanted child” may have come from the eugenics movement, specifically Fredrick Henry Osborn.
Frederic Osborn once stated that, “Eugenic goals are most likely attained under a name other than eugenics.”
Osborn was a founding member of the American Eugenics Society and he also helped start the Population Council as well as the Pioneer Fund, all known for their population control agenda.
Osborn signed Margaret Sanger’s “Citizens Committee for Planned Parenthood” published in her review in April of 1938.
According to Evolution in the News, Osborn, a founding member of the American Eugenics Society, restructured the eugenics movement in the 1950s and 1960s, covering up its totalitarian roots and marketing it as “voluntary unconscious selection,” a corrective to natural selection impaired by human domestication (i.e. civilization).
Osborn’s suggested motto for the New Eugenics was “Every Child a Wanted Child“, which now adorns Planned Parenthood’s website and is available on buttons from pro-abortion organizations.
Saynsumthn Blog wanted to confirm that eugenicist Osborn coined the term, so I contacted the American Philosophical Society which houses records from the eugenics society.
Here is their reply, ” Osborn’s slogan apparently is used in Planned Parenthood, and papers are in Princeton. According to the APS Librarians, We do have a collection of Osborn’s papers at the APS as well and the records of the AES. It’s possible that there is documentation in one of the collections. It’s the kind of question that is likely difficult to determine, unless Osborn published something specifically about it. It does sound like Osborn, the respectable face of eugenics in the post WWII era.”
It is no wonder that Osborn also said that, “Birth Control and abortion are turning out to be the great eugenic advances of our time.”
The letter which members of Texas Right To Life received also complains that if we allow children to be born rather than murdered in the womb, it will cost “billions of dollars every year,” in tax money.
Even if you buy into a eugenics/ abortion philosophy there is no proof that killing little babies saves the taxpayer money, as I break down here.
The letter is a sad commentary that eugenics is alive and well in America and it is even more proof that it’s roots must be completely pulled out and shown for the lie it is.
