At the age of 14, after becoming pregnant from a violent rape, the eugenics board of the State of Nort

North Carolina decided Elaine Riddick should not have any more children and sterilized her without consent. Riddick claims the reason she was sterilized without her knowledge or approval was because the state of North Carolina had ruled her “feebleminded,” a degrading term commonly used in eugenics. She recently told her emotional story in the powerful documentary film, produced by Life Dynamics, Inc., called Maafa21: Black Genocide in 21st Century America, which Live Action is screening on social media this month. North Carolina’s eugenics program was funded in part by a member of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger’s Board of Directors and close friend of the Federation — Clarence Gamble. Gamble sat on the boardof Sanger’s American Birth Control League (ABCL) as well asPlanned Parenthood, and was also a financier of Sanger’s birth control crusade. In addition, he helped to fund the North Carolina Eugenics program.

Sanger, an established member of the American Eugenics Society, stacked her organization with like-minded men and women. In 1942, the ABCL changed its name to Planned Parenthood.

Elaine Riddick was kidnapped, molested, and became pregnant as a result of rape at 13 years of age. At the time, Riddick was living with her grandmother, Maggie Woodard, known as “Miss Peaches,” when a social worker with the State discovered her pregnancy. Her name was Sue L. Casebolt, and she referred Elaine’s case to the state’s Eugenics Board. Casebolt had been installed as the Executive Secretary of the North Carolina Eugenics Board in 1961.

Elaine Riddick speaks about eugenic sterilization in Maafa21

According to Maafa21:

At a board meeting held three weeks later, she stated that she intended to keep a file on every child whose name reached her desk so that they could be picked up as soon as they reached childbearing age. Casebolt was still on the board in 1968 when it approved the sterilization of Elaine Riddick.

Riddick said that her grandmother was illiterate and did not understand what she was signing. Knowing this, the social worker pressured her to sign with an “X,” threatening to send Elaine to an orphanage, and remove her grandmother’s government aid for food if she did not. Unfortunately, the document her grandmother was pressured to sign was not a medical consent form for the birth, but a consent to have Elaine sterilized after she gave birth to her son Tony, now a successful businessman.

“I did not find out that they had sterilized me until I was nineteen years old,” Riddick says in Maafa21, adding:

I asked the State of North Carolina why they did this to me and they said that [they did it] because I was feebleminded. That I would not be able to take care of myself…. That I was incompetent…. They were saying that feeblmindness is hereditary. So, they sterilized me so I would not produce my kind. Mind you, I am not illiterate nor am I feebleminded…. They sterilized kids, my understanding…-as young as eight years of age. I don’t know what an eight year-old can do that could cause them to do this to them? The only reason I can give myself is that [it’s] because they’re Black.”

Riddick’s powerful testimony and nearly 40-year battle for justice secured millions of dollars for surviving victims in North Carolina. As a result of Riddick’s willingness to tell her story, North Carolina also agreed to make its eugenics records public.

North Carolina Eugenics Program document

North Carolina’s sterilization program began with the passage of the North Carolina Sterilization Act in 1929. In 1933, according to the North Carolina History Project online, the act was declared unconstitutional on the grounds that it “did not allow an appeals process. In the same year, the North Carolina General Assembly passed a law allowing an appeal process and created the Board of Eugenics to oversee sterilizations.”

“Between 1929 and 1974, more than 7,600 North Carolinians were sterilized,” reports the Winston-Salem Journal, which wrote extensively on this tragedy, “many of them against their will. Young girls who had gotten pregnant, some by rape or incest, were frequently the targets. Some were flagged because faulty intelligence tests labeled them “feeble-minded,” others simply because they were epileptic. Many were young, poor and black.”

“It’s a very paternalistic model,” author and researcher Johanna Schoen said. “(Women) certainly weren’t supposed to choose when to use birth control or when not to use birth control, or when to be sterilized or when not to be sterilized. The model was, the physician knows best.”

Schoen writes in his book, “Choice & Coercion: Birth Control, Sterilization, and Abortion in Public”:

[M]any philanthropists and health officials believed that African Americans lacked the intellectual  capacity to use any form of birth control. Elsie Wulkop, a social worker who collaborated with [Clarence] Gamble to establish small contraceptive field trials, commented on the attempt to educate African Americans on birth control, “It impresses me as being like trying to get sheer animals to conform.”

Schoen continues, “Sources indicate that some health officials might have found birth control programs appealing as a form of population control.”

Elaine Riddick

Riddick is also understandably outspoken against Planned Parenthood, as the abortion corporation’s founder was  financially supported by Clarence Gamble, the man who also helped fund the very eugenics program that sterilized Riddick. “Euphemisms and sterilization target code words, for example, “feebleminded”, were used to describe Black women like me,” Riddick wrote in an op-ed:

“I was forcibly sterilized at the age of 14 years under North Carolina’s inhumane forced sterilization policy. A policy that was derived from Margaret Sanger’s Planned Parenthood population control handbook, which spread across the United States by her loyal band of eugenicists and lobbying our elected officials.”

Despite Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger’s ties to the horrors of eugenics, many laud her as a hero, including modern-day Planned Parenthood itself. But, as Mary Senander explains in the Star Tribune, Sanger was anything but a heroine:

Contemporary liberal social planners have elevated Sanger to sainthood, protesting that her birth control campaign was nothing more than a vehicle for economic betterment and health for the masses. But Sanger’s own well-documented words, publications and associations indicate a deeper and darker motivation. Sanger began publishing the Birth Control Review in 1917 and served as its editor until 1938. The May 1919 Review proclaimed, “More children for the fit, less for the unfit.” By unfit, Sanger meant the mentally retarded or physically handicapped; later her definition expanded.

Birth Control to Create a Race of Thoroughbreds, by Margaret Sanger (Image Birth Control Review)

In November 1921 the review issued a clarion call: “Birth control, to create a race of thoroughbreds.” Sanger suggested that parents should “apply for babies as immigrants have to apply for visas.” By 1925, she was a true convert to eugenics, setting up birth control clinics in poor neighborhoods populated by “Latins” and “Slavs” (both groups heavily Catholic) and “Hebrews” – groups she had targeted as threats because of their increasing numbers. She spoke of those who were “irresponsible and reckless,” among them those “whose religious scruples prevent their exercising control over their numbers”…

In the October 1926 Review, Sanger announced her idea for eugenic sterilization: “There is only one reply to a request for a higher birthrate among the intelligent, and that is to ask the government to first take off the burdens of the insane and the feeble-minded from your backs.” Eugenicists like Sanger concluded that the poor were both stupid and immoral, fueling campaigns for sterilization during the Depression. (By 1932, 27 states had compulsory sterilization laws.)

Sanger supporter Clarence Gamble was a graduate of Harvard Medical School graduate, the heir to the Procter & Gamble fortune, and a teacher at the University of Pennsylvania. He was also a medical consultant for the Human Betterment League of North Carolina, another organization with ties to eugenics.

                                                        Eugenics pamphlet from Human Betterment League Association

According to the book, “Intended Consequences,” in 1933, Gamble was elected president of the Pennsylvania Birth Control Federation, an organization affiliated with Sanger. And, according to researcher James A. Miller:

In December 1937, Gamble was appointed ‘Medical Field Director’ of Sanger’s Birth Control Clinical Research Bureau and at the same time became a member of the editorial advisory board of the Bureau’s Journal of Contraception, a propaganda vehicle for Sanger’s birth control and eugenics agenda…When the North Carolina plan was launched, there were just three (private) birth control clinics in the state; by the end of 1938, with Gamble’s backing, the state had created 56. At that time, with less than 3 percent of the country’s population, North Carolina had 13 percent of the nation’s birth control clinics. By mid-1939 the number of birth control clinics in North Carolina had risen to 62, second only to New York.

Planned Parenthood, eugenics

Margaret Sanger letter to Clarence Gamble (image credit: Maafa21)

By 1939, Gamble joined others in funding Sanger’s Committee on Planned Parenthood. And, according to Senander’s article, “Eugenics part of Sanger legacy”:

 Dr. Clarence J. Gamble, previously a director of the ABCL, was elected the BCFA regional director in the South. Almost immediately, he drew up a memorandum for his plans for the “Negro Project.” Gamble’s plan included placing black leaders in positions where it would appear that they were in charge (in order to counter the perception by black leaders who might regard birth control as an extermination plot). Sanger agreed: “We do not want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten that idea out if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”

Sanger’s 1939 letter to Gamble, about the infamous “Negro Project,” can be seen excerpted in the image below:

Planned Parenthood, eugenics

Excerpt: Margaret Sanger Letter to Clarence Gamble, Negro Project

Gamble referred to eugenic sterilization as “preventative medicine,” writing in the North Carolina Medical Journal in 1951:

One method of preventive medicine, the sterilization of the insane, the feeblemided and the epileptic, is supervised by the Eugenics Board of North Carolina…. Petitions for the sterilization of a mentally diseased, feebleminded, or epileptic person may be initiated by a county superintendent of welfare, or the head of a state institution. If the Board finds that the operation is for the best mental, moral or physical improvement of the patient, or for the public good, it may authorize the procedure…. Of those sterilized under the law, 23 per cent were Negro. That this figure is lower than the proportion of Negroes in the population of the state-approximately one-third-is due partly to the fact that the state hospital caring for the Negro insane and feebleminded has not had sufficient surgical services to perform many of these operations.

Then, by the early 1960’s, Gamble co-authored a booklet on family planning with Planned Parenthood’s president, Alan F. Guttmacher. It was published by Pathfinder Fund, an organization Gamble helped to found. The book was  entitled, “Family planning: a challenge to health workers of every nation.”

Guttmacher, a former vice-president of the American Eugenics Society, had been a longtime advocate of abortion and a strong proponent of government funded “family planning.” Author Angela Franks notes in her book on Sanger:

As both Sanger and Gamble had foreseen, once government got involved, Planned Parenthood [PPFA] and Gamble’s Pathfinder Fund would be able to spend great sums of money carrying out their original eugenic and population control mandates, and with people like Gamble and PPFA’s Alan Guttmacher directing the organizational bureaucracy, the continued influence of eugenics was inevitable.

Research from the Winston-Salem Journal discovered that “Gamble wanted sterilizations to increase rather than decrease, and increase they did.”

According to the film, Maafa21, “In 1947, Gamble called for the expansion of North Carolina’s State’s sterilization program saying that for every feeble minded person sterilized, 40 more were polluting and degrading the bloodlines of future generation with their defective genes.”

Planned Parenthood, eugenics

Gamble had been promoting birth control since the late 1930s…” writes the Winston-Salem Journal. In addition:

Gamble was sure that eugenic sterilization was a good idea, but after World War II few states were willing to consider the kind of aggressive program that he wanted. Gamble contributed time, money and a keen public-relations sense to the Human Betterment League. He also paid for most of the sterilizations in Orange County during one year, and he paid for the research that went into the book Sterilization in North Carolina, written by researcher Moya Woodside.

According to Maafa21, “North Carolina was not the only state whose eugenics programs were influenced by friends of Sanger or Planned Parenthood. In some parts of the country, Planned Parenthood was closely associated with these state eugenics boards and was often a referral agency for them.” You can watch Maafa21 on Live Action’s Facebook page.

In her quest to get justice for eugenics victims, Elaine Riddick testified tearfully:

I was a victim of rape…I was a victim of child abuse… I have to get out what the state of North Carolina did to me. I am not feeble minded. I’ve never been feeble minded. They slandered me. They ridiculed and harassed me….

They cut me open like I was a hog… at the same time they gave me a cesarean birth and took my child and when they did that – they sterilized me. What do you think I’m worth?

Riddick told the lawmakers that her only crime was being poor, Black, and from a bad home environment.

Between 1929 and 1974, nearly 7,600 documented males and females were sterilized by choice, force or coercion under the authority the NC Eugenics Board program. The youngest victims were ten years of age.

  • 85% of victims were female.
  • 40% of victims were minorities, including African Americans and Native Americans.

In 2010, the Justice for Sterilization Victims Foundation was established as a Division of the NC Department of Administration to compensate victims who were forcibly sterilized by the State. The exact number of victims alive today is unknown. However, the State Center for Health Statistics estimates that 2,944 victims may have still been alive as of 2010. It is more realistically estimated by the State Center that 1,500 to 2,000 victims may still be alive.

In 2013, the NC state legislature included $10 million in the budget to be divvied among verified victims.

Eugenics is an evil ideology that tragically remains alive today. As Live Action News has previously documented, the philosophy of eugenics continues to morph under different terms such as abortion and euthanasia. Today, abortion disproportionately targets the African American community — and the main promoter of abortion is Planned Parenthood.

Although Planned Parenthood was founded by Margaret Sanger, an eugenics enthusiast, the organization has yet to denounce her. That is because Planned Parenthood’s ties to eugenics run just as deep as their founder’s — and that evil root, which claims to decide who is worthy to live or to die, exists to this day.

Texas abortion doctor says its great that 98% of babies he aborted were from Hispanic mothers

Posted in Abortionist, Eugenics, Eugenics by State, Hispanic, Hispanic Abortion Stats, Texas Abortion, Texas abortion clinics with tags , , , , , , , , on September 12, 2014 by saynsumthn

White doctor, Lester Minto who performs abortions in Texas has admitted that he aborts primarily Hispanic babies.

For 35 years I had a clinic where I saw women and took care of their reproductive needs, but mostly terminating pregnancies,” Dr. Lester Minto says.

Lester Minto

Ninety-eight percent were Hispanics,”Minto told NPR radio, “I would go days where I wouldn’t speak English because they were all Spanish speakers — which is great.

Minto, who says he averaged more than 4000 each year, admits that he has had emergencies related to his abortions. Two of his patients have had to go to the hospital, he says.

According to the most recent stats, 64 percent of babies aborted in Texas were Black or Hispanic.

24.9% of babies aborted in Texas were Black.

38.7% of babies aborted in Texas were Hispanic.

TEXAS 2010 Abortion Stats REAL 2010

The stats, published by the CDC , reports that there were 76,778 total abortions performed in Texas in 2010.

23,548 (or 30.7 percent) were non-Hispanic white babies, 19,139 (or 24.9 percent) were non-Hispanic black babies, 29,771 (or 38.8 percent) were Hispanic babies, and 4,320 (or 5.6 percent) were babies of other races or ethnicity.

That is an increase from the CDC Abortion Surveillance report published on Nov. 23, 2012.

The CDC Abortion Surveillance Report dated November 29, 2013 also reveals that in 2010, 56.7% of abortions reported to the CDC nationwide were done on Hispanic and Black women.

CDC 2010 Black Hispanic Abortions TOTAL

According to the Report there were 415,479 abortions for known ethnicity reported for selected states in 2010. 153,045 (or 36.8 percent) were non-Hispanic white babies, 148,261 (or 35.7 percent) were non-Hispanic black babies, 87,240 (or 21.0 percent) were Hispanic babies, and 26,933 (or 6.5 percent) were babies of other races or ethnicity.

The report reveals that a majority of Black or Hispanic babies were aborted in many states:

• 73.3% of babies aborted in Mississippi were Black or Hispanic

• 73.2 % of babies #aborted in Georgia were Black or Hispanic

• 64.8% of babies aborted in DC were Black or Hispanic

• 61.4% of babies aborted in Alabama were Black or Hispanic

• 55.9% of babies aborted in New Jersey were Black or Hispanic

• 55.6% of babies aborted in Virginia were Black or Hispanic

• 54.1% of babies aborted in Tennessee were Black or Hispanic

• 54.3% of babies aborted in Delaware were Black or Hispanic

• 45.7 % of babies aborted in South Carolina were Black or Hispanic

• 43.5% of babies aborted in Missouri were Black or Hispanic

• 42.6% of babies aborted in Ohio were Black or Hispanic

• 41.6% of babies aborted in Arkansas were Black or Hispanic

RacialTargeting

A Texas pro-life organization says that abortion clinics are strategically located in minority communities. The group, Life Dynamics, Inc. has published a report using zip code analysis to document their claims.

Mark Crutcher, president of Life Dynamics, who wrote the report, said that he believes abortion is about eugenics, and his research proves this claim, “This confirms what we have said all along, that abortion is not about woman’s rights or reproductive freedom it is simply about eugenics. We not only documented the eugenic targeting of minorities in our film, Maafa21 but also in a report we published in 2011. Research we produced for our report, Racial Profiling by Planned Parenthood and the American Abortion Lobby, clearly shows that a majority of family planning centers market abortion to minorities by locating their centers in minority communities.”

Maafa21 DVD NEW WEBSITE

Crutcher continues, “Maafa21 cites a study conducted by three American university researchers into the criteria used to decide the placement of U.S. population control facilities. Their finding was that the primary consideration in making this determination is not poverty but the percentage of blacks in the area. Historically, the population control movement’s eugenic efforts have been primarily focused on the African-American community and that was the underlying theme of Maafa 21. In our most recent research, however, we have seen unmistakable evidence that the family planning establishment is also ratcheting up its efforts to deal with the Hispanic population.

Life Dynamics identified 116 ZIP codes nationwide with more than one population control facility. Of those, 84 were disproportionately black and/or Hispanic.

Crutcher’s report revealed that in Texas alone, 94 zip codes showed either an abortion facility or a Planned Parenthood abortion-referral clinic located there and 72 percent of the zip codes have populations that are disproportionately black and/or Hispanic.

Another state considers reparations for Eugenics Sterilization Victims

Posted in Eugenics by State, Virginia Eugenics with tags , , , , on August 7, 2012 by saynsumthn

The Washington Post is reporting that Del. Patrick Hope (D-Arlington) called on the state to compensate people it forcibly sterilized under a eugenics law enforced as recently as 1979.

Between 1927 to 1979, Virginia sterilized about 8,000 people deemed unfit to reproduce for reasons such as mental illness, physical deformity or homelessness.

“Compensating these individuals is the just and right thing to do,” Hope said in a prepared statement. “This year marks the 85th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s Buck v. Bell decision, which upheld Virginia’s 1924 eugenics sterilization law, a model law used by many other states to sterilize their people.”

Hope made the announcement in the House briefing room. According to Hope’s office, 7,500 Virginians were forcibly sterilized by the state during the 53 years eugenics was practiced in the state.

Virginia’s eugenics law was upheld by the 1924 Supreme Court Decision Buck v. Bell. The law wasn’t overturned until 1977. It became a model for laws adopted in other states, and mandated involuntary surgical sterilization for any hereditary illness or disability. At the time, this included mental illness, alcoholism, developmental disabilities, even ‘immorality.’

Ten years ago then Governor Mark Warner issued a formal apology for the practice, but today Del. Hope is expected to ask Governor Bob McDonnell and the General Assembly to provide a “symbolic payment” to eugenics victims.

North Carolina is also discussing Reparations for their Eugenics Victims. Read More Here

“They cut me open like I was a hog,” said Elaine Riddick, who was sterilized at age 14. “I didn’t even know nothing about this stuff.”
Riddick, now 57, said her only crime was being poor, BLACK, and from a bad home environment.

AP exposes eugenics but censors Clarence Gamble’s connection to Planned Parenthood

Posted in Clarence Gamble, Eugenics, Eugenics by State, Margaret Sanger, Media Bias, Planned Parenthood and Eugenics with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 21, 2012 by saynsumthn

In this Questions, answers about history of eugenics in US, published by the Associated Press, the AP highlights the role of Planned Parenthood supporter Clarence Gamble in Eugenics, a movement created to discriminate against the so-called unfit and feebleminded, which usually led to racism and the forced sterilization of blacks in Americas. True to form, the media has censored any correlation from Gamble to the Planned Parenthood movement founded by Gamble’s near and dear friend Margaret Sanger.

Quoting from =the article:

One of the leading promoters of the North Carolina eugenics program was Dr. Clarence Gamble, a Boston doctor and heir to the Proctor & Gamble fortune. He helped form Birthright and was the driving force behind the national campaign.

Gamble convinced his brother Cecil Gamble to help, and in December 1944, the Gamble Family Trust made a $10,000 donation to Birthright, which would be the equivalent to about $125,000 today.

Clarence Gamble didn’t have a role in Proctor & Gamble, and while Cecil Gamble was on the board, the company said last year the donation was personal and in no way reflected the firm’s opinion.

Birthright later changed its name to the Human Betterment Association. They had a national office in New York and loosely-affiliated chapters in North Carolina, Georgia, Iowa, Arkansas and Texas. Some of the chapters were short-lived, but the one in North Carolina operated for almost 30 years.

Gamble hired a New York City advertising firm to help sell the campaign. Leading journalists, along with some doctors and professors, voiced support, too.

Gamble and his colleagues launched the expanded eugenics campaign with the intention it would cut across all social and racial categories. A eugenics document written in 1945 said: “It is designed to check the reproduction of defectives wherever they may be found, in institutions or at large, in the richest family or the poorest family, without regard to color, race, or religion.


Planned Parenthood’s founder Margaret Sanger was a racist eugenics supporter and members and Planned Parenthood got referrals from their eugenics Courts. One of Sanger’s supporters and financiers was Clarence Gamble and he funded the NC Eugenics Society which sterilized many black women including Elaine Riddick.


Tens of thousands of Americans were sterilized from the 1920s into the 1970s under programs that embraced eugenics – the idea that one way to improve the population was to limit the number of children born to people with undesirable traits.

North Carolina performed the third-most eugenic sterilizations in the United States, behind California and Virginia. North Carolina is the first state to consider compensating people who were sterilized under its eugenics program.

Sterilized at 13, eugenics victim speaks out , posted with vodpod

Winston-Salem, NC — A Triad area congregation hosted survivors of state-ordered sterilization, Sunday. The service went on without the presence of State Representative Larry Womble who is among lawmakers calling for victim’s compensation.

Womble remains hospitalized after a head-on collission that left the other driver dead, Friday night.

Among the survivors at Emmanuel Baptist Church today Lillie Ann Buelin, 72, from Ararat, NC.

Buelin says welfare workers told her that if she didn’t go to school they would operate on her and have her sterilized. She says they also tested her and labeled her retarded.

“I was just 13 years old.”

Buelin says she is sharing her story because she wants something done and that she is also praying for Larry Womble’s recovery.

The Eugenics Board of North Carolina approved 7,600 sterilizations between 1933 and 1976. Most of the victims were young, poor and black. But the list includes blacks and whites, males and females.

“The most important thing of my life was being a mother when I grew up and got married to have children and that was taken from me.”

Eugenics sterilization proponents had ties to Planned Parenthood,received awards,funded Sanger

Wallace Kuralt was a monster , he was rooted in eugenics and not surprisingly and in 1983 Planned Parenthood if Greater Charlotte gave him the Margaret Sanger Award – according to a Charlotte Observer Obituary from 1994. Not surprisingly because Sanger was a racist eugenics supporter and members and Planned Parenthood got referrals from their eugenics Courts.

According to the Charlotte Observer: Janice Black’s crooked signature crawls across the consent form. She didn’t know what kind of paper she was signing. Her name was the only thing she knew how to write.

It was 1971. She was 18. Janice’s IQ had tested out at 44. Her estimated mental age was 7. Her family decided she wasn’t fit to raise children. Her stepmother took her to Charlotte Memorial Hospital. Janice didn’t know why. She didn’t feel sick. She woke in a hospital bed. She tried to get up, and it hurt. She looked and saw an incision from her belly button on down. The state of North Carolina had sterilized her.

Between 1929 and 1974, the state – through the N.C. Eugenics Board – authorized the sterilizations of some 7,600 North Carolinians who were classified as mentally ill, epileptic or “feebleminded.”

She is 59 now. She lives in a house off The Plaza with the family of Sadie Gilmore Long, her longtime friend and legal guardian. Janice works three days a week and sings in her church choir and laughs at “Meet the Browns” on TV.

She tries not to think about the past. It left a scar. “Sometimes I wish I hadn’t been born, you know what I’m saying?” she says. “Sometimes I – what I feel like – that I wasn’t treated fairly. Like I was a human being. I was treated like I’m not no human being.”

It’s not clear how Janice came to the attention of the Mecklenburg County Welfare Department. But Wallace Kuralt, head of the Welfare Department from 1945 to 1972, was known nationwide as a leader in eugenic sterilization. His department sought out clients among the (as he put it) “low mentality-low income families which tend to produce the largest number of children.”

Kuralt saw sterilization as part of a progressive vision of family planning. Some women, especially in the days before the birth control pill, came to the county begging to be sterilized. But the county also promoted the operations for people who were poor, disabled, or in trouble.According to PJmedia: The Charlotte Observer has obtained records sealed by the state that tell the stories of 403 Mecklenburg residents ordered sterilized by the N.C. Eugenics Board at the behest of Kuralt’s welfare department.It’s a number that dwarfs the total from any other county, in a state that ran one of the nation’s most active efforts to sterilize the mentally ill, mentally retarded and epileptic.

Race played a major role. Of course. Kuralt was a strong Progressive eugenicist.In 1960, just under 25 percent of Mecklenburg residents were African-American.

Most of that happened in the ’50s and early ’60s. After 1971, only 48 people in North Carolina were sterilized through the Eugenics Board. So, of the 7,600 people who were sterilized in North Carolina, Janice Black was one of the last.

State law listed three types of people that the state could sterilize. People with a mental illness, such as schizophrenia. People with epilepsy. And people who were classified as “feebleminded” – which generally meant they had an IQ of less than 70. Janice, with her IQ score of 44, was labeled as feebleminded.

These days, in North Carolina, parents can petition a judge to have a child sterilized. But it’s the last resort. Ellen Russell, director of advocacy for The Arc of North Carolina – a nonprofit that works with the developmentally and intellectually disabled – says IQ isn’t a reliable measure of the ability to raise children. Raising kids, she says, involves subtler skills, as well as support from the community.

“There are certainly people with developmental disabilities who can raise children well,” Russell says. “As there are people without developmental disabilities who can’t.”
The Eugenics Board doesn’t appear to have dealt with the subtleties. They approved the vast majority of cases brought to them. Janice Black signed the consent form, and so did her father, and Wallace Kuralt sent the file to Raleigh. He recommended that Janice be sterilized. The board agreed.

That’s how she ended up at Charlotte Memorial, in the hospital bed, with the scar.

One interesting point to the Charlotte Observers article, is that they failed to show the connection Kuralt and many others inside the North Carolina Eugenics Boards have to federally funded Planned Parenthood today- like the 1983 Margaret Sanger Award which was bestowed on him.In writings and interviews, Wallace Kuralt described sterilization and birth control as the key to saving tax money and rooting out poverty…have we not heard this reasoning before? Like Recently with ObamaCare?

In fact, Kuralt was so excited about Planned Parenthood that he approached a woman by the name of Sarah Bryant to start one and she later founded Planned Parenthood Health Systems Incin the late 1960s

Bryant, then asked many of Charlotte’s most powerful bankers, lawyers, ministers, doctors, teachers and community servants to join her on a Planned Parenthood board. In 1971, two years before abortions were legalized, the agency opened its first health Planned Parenthood center on Morehead Street. Bryant got businesses and government to provide financial support.

Another interesting connection is that the Doctor who worked with Kuralt: Dr. Elizabeth Corkey joined in a lawsuit to overturn North Carolina’s abortion ban in 1970, and chaired a Planned Parenthood clinic….very interesting, HUH? According to the Charlotte Observer, Many of the women sterilized in the late 1950s were seen by the Health Department’s Dr. Elizabeth Corkey, an obstetrician. Dr. Corkey died Thursday, Aug. 24, 1995, but according to the obituary in the Charlotte Observer, She helped start the Charlotte chapter of Planned Parenthood, also documented in the Planned Parenthood website – here. And in this 1964 article she is a speaker at a Planned Parenthood conference.

( H/T) Elaine Riddick was 13 years old when she got pregnant after being raped by a neighbor in Winfall, N.C., in 1967. The state ordered that immediately after giving birth, she should be sterilized. Doctors cut and tied off her fallopian tubes.

“I have to carry these scars with me. I have to live with this for the rest of my life,” she said.

Riddick was never told what was happening. “Got to the hospital and they put me in a room and that’s all I remember, that’s all I remember,” she said. “When I woke up, I woke up with bandages on my stomach.”

Riddick’s records reveal that a five-person state eugenics board in Raleigh had approved a recommendation that she be sterilized. The records label Riddick as “feebleminded” and “promiscuous.” They said her schoolwork was poor and that she “does not get along well with others.”

“I was raped by a perpetrator [who was never charged] and then I was raped by the state of North Carolina. They took something from me both times,” she said. “The state of North Carolina, they took something so dearly from me, something that was God given.”

It wouldn’t be until Riddick was 19, married and wanting more children, that she’d learn she was incapable of having any more babies. A doctor in New York where she was living at the time told her that she’d been sterilized.

“Butchered. The doctor used that word… I didn’t understand what she meant when she said I had been butchered,” Riddick said.
North Carolina was one of 31 states to have a government run eugenics program. By the 1960s, tens of thousands of Americans were sterilized as a result of these programs.

Journal research shows a long history of abuses in the N.C. sterilization program – abuses that Gamble consistently glossed over..” Gamble wanted sterilizations to increase rather than decrease, and increase they did.

Think the targeting of blacks for sterilization was coincidence? Just like they way they are targeted today for abortion??? Think again:

Read what Planned Parenthood Founder, Margaret Sanger, wrote to Dr. Clarence Gamble (who funded the State of North Carolina’s Eugenics Programs) in a letterdated December 19, 1939,
We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. The minister’s work is also important and also he should be trained, perhaps by the Federation [of Eugenicists] as to our ideals and the goal that we hope to reach. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.” that plan was called “The NEGRO Project”.

NEVER NEVER FORGET WHAT THESE EUGENICS PEOPLE DID:

Lela Mae Moore Dunston lives in Raleigh, just a few miles away from where a board of men and women she’d never met voted to have her sterilized in March of 1963.
She was 13, living with her mother in Wilmington, and pregnant with her first child. It would be the only child the state would allow her to have.

Dunston, who was termed “mildly retarded” as the justification for sterilization, says she is not mentally handicapped and is one of a growing number of sterilization victims demanding that the state compensate them. Their mental evaluations were often based on flawed intelligence testing. Others were sterilized for reasons including epilepsy, blindness or rumors of promiscuity.

Many of these victims have read the petitions for sterilizations that social workers wrote about them. Often, they contain more racism and class prejudice than hard facts. The petition to sterilize Dunston says that she and her mother “live in an area that has a low socio-economic level.” Dunston is described as “a rather alert little Negro girl” who “wore a very ragged sweater and her hair literally stood on end all over her head.”

That was “a bunch of baloney,” Dunston said.

In the early 1960s, as Gov. Terry Sanford was leading North Carolina through integration, the sterilization program, which operated beneath the radar, began targeting black women of modest means. Sometimes, the petitions contained outright lies, as in this line from Dunston’s: “Both the mother and Lela Mae understand that sterilization will result in Lela Mae not being able to reproduce and both seem happy with this.”

Dunston said she didn’t know what the operation was about. “I was only 13,” Dunston said. “Thirteen years old you don’t know nothing about this kind of mess. You’re a child yourself.”

Here is a sample of what the Eugenics Victims have said:

Elaine Riddick:I have to get out what the state of North Carolina did to me. I am not feeble minded. I’ve never been feeble minded. They slandered me. They ridiculed and harassed me. They cut me open like I was a hog, My body was too young for what they did to me. I had to have a child at the age of 14. When I had my son, at the same time they took my child in cesarean and then did that to me. What do you think I’m worth? … I’ve never had nobody to take care of me. I’ve had to do this all by myself. I never had anyone give me anything. I had to pick my own self up…What am I worth? The kids I didn’t have. Couldn’t have. What are they worth?”

Tony Riddick added, “You harmed my mother and killed her womb . When u look forward – It’s genocide – premeditated murder – you deserve to be punished….This is sinister. I know I don’t have the power to bring justice myself….We say we are a nation that’s concerned and compassionate and these victims have not been compensated yet. For my mother, it’s been 43 years…God will hold you accountable for what you have done to my mom.”

“This right here is a good example of what God is capable of doing.My mother’s life and my life, by ANY measure, would have been, should have been, COULD have been totally written off.”

LeLa Dunston (victim)
“I can’t have no babies…They told me to sign papers. I didn’t sign papers. That was not my signature on these papers…I need a reward or something…some kind of compensation for all they put me through. I wanted more children. I wouldn’t have minded having a daughter. Maybe two, maybe three.”

Australia Clay (victim’s family member)
“Every victim that went through any of this victimization was a guinea pig. A science guinea pig. It was bogus medicine. Bogus science…This is North Carolina’s holocaust. We need a wall. We need a library. My mother needs her name and picture in a library room.”

Melissa Hyatt (victim’s loved one)
“Nobody explained what the surgery was for, at least to him.”

Karen Beck (victim’s family member)
“I’m sure the surgeons that wielded the knives against their small bodies believed they were doing the right thing. Indeed, how could any of them be wrong?”

Deborah Chesson (victim’s family member)
“The eugenics board has deemed my mother nothing. To me, she is everything….You tore families apart. You hurt people. There’s no compensation that can put that back.”

Janice Black’s crooked signature crawls across the consent form. She didn’t know what kind of paper she was signing. Her name was the only thing she knew how to write. It was 1971. She was 18. Janice’s IQ had tested out at 44. Her estimated mental age was 7. Her family decided she wasn’t fit to raise children.

Supreme Court Blocks Government Plan To Claim Ownership Of DNA, tells government: Hands off babies’ DNA

Posted in Big Brother, DNA, Eugenics, Eugenics by State with tags , , , , , , , , on December 2, 2011 by saynsumthn

In a long running case, a Supreme Court has ruled to limit the use of blood samples collected from newborns by the government.

The case has exposed the fact that there is an ongoing semi-covert movement by state and federal governments to claim ownership of every newborn baby’s DNA for the purpose of genetic research without the consent of individual citizens.

The Minnesota Court ruled Wednesday that the Minnesota Department of Health is violating the law in storing, using and disseminating newborn screening test results and newborn DNA.

Overruling a lower court’s decision, the state Supreme Court found that the samples are “Genetic Information” under the State Genetic Privacy Act, and held that “unless otherwise provided, the Department must have written informed consent to collect, use, store, or disseminate [the blood samples].”

The case had been brought by nine families with 25 children. The Citizen’s Council for Health Freedom, which has monitored the case’s progress since it was launched, has expressed concern about the possible eugenics influences that could result from inappropriate use of DNA data.

President Twila Brase said, “We are cheered by this good news. When our organization discovered the state health department’s baby DNA warehouse in 2003 and the use of newborn DNA for genetic research without parent consent, we determined to do all that we could to stop this practice. No state law expressly permits these activities.”

She said, “We are pleased that these nine families were willing to sue the state of Minnesota. Their action and this decision now secures the genetic privacy rights and informed written consent rights of all Minnesota parents and newborn citizens.”

The majority opinion, written by Justice Helen M. Meyer, said, “The [state’s] Genetic Privacy Act … restricts the collection, use, storage, and dissemination of blood samples collected pursuant to the newborn screening statutes.

“The newborn screening statutes provide an express exception to the Genetic Privacy Act only to the extent that the [health] department is authorized to administer newborn screening by testing the samples for heritable and congenital disorders, recording and reporting those test results, maintaining a registry of positive cases for the purpose of follow-up services, and storing those test results as required by federal law.”

New Film ‘Alleged’ Dramatizing Impact of Eugenics and the Scopes Trial

North Carolina Faces Legacy of Forced Sterilization as Hollywood Releases New Film Alleged Dramatizing Impact of Eugenics in the South


By: John G. West November 8, 2011 11:35 AM | Permalink

North Carolina is all over the news this week as it deals with the shameful legacy of its eugenics program that forcibly sterilized minorities, the poor, and others well into the 1970s. Ironically, this same week Hollywood is releasing on DVD the film Alleged, a new feature-length movie that dramatizes the personal impact of forced sterilization in the American South.

The main focus of Alleged is the infamous Scopes “Monkey Trial” in 1920s Tennessee, but a key subplot depicts the attempt to sterilize a mixed-race girl who is wrongly labeled feeble-minded based on her family history and IQ tests. The subplot is fictional, but it draws on the actual history of forced sterilization at the time.

The movie correctly shows how many doctors and scientists in America embraced forced sterilization because of the so-called science of eugenics, which sought to breed better human beings by applying Darwinian principles.

Darwin himself helped provide the inspiration for eugenics in Chapter 5 of his book The Descent of Man, where he argued that civilized societies were degrading the human race by inoculating people against smallpox, helping the poor, and saving the sick. According to Darwin, by preserving defective people that natural selection would have killed off, we were ruining the human race: “No one who has attended to the breeding of domestic animals will doubt that this must be highly injurious to the race of man.”

More from the Movie – The Darwin Trial:

Darwin was ambivalent about what to do about this problem, one time writing that human sympathy wouldn’t allow us to go back to the law of the jungle, and other times insisting that if man “is to advance still higher he must remain subject to a severe struggle.”

Darwin’s followers were not so double-minded. Like Darwin, they thought that simply reinstating natural selection would be cruel, and so they suggested that a more humane approach would be to re-institute selection by sterilizing or segregating those natural selection would have killed off. Thus, the “science” of eugenics was born.

Although eugenics involved artificial selection rather than natural selection, it was based fully on Darwinian ideology. Indeed, the whole reason we needed to apply artificial selection according to eugenists was because we had abandoned natural selection. We had to reinstate something equivalent to natural selection in human society or we were doomed.

Eugenics is typically regarded today as an example of fringe science from the past. In reality, it was the consensus view of the scientific community for decades, and it was embraced in particular by the leading evolutionary biologists at Harvard, Princeton, Columbia, Stanford, and the University of Chicago. Refreshingly, Alleged accurately conveys both the pervasiveness of eugenics in scientific and medical circles of the 1920s, and its ideological connection to Darwinism.
