In Planned Parenthood founder, Margaret Sanger’s, “Birth Control and Racial Betterment,” Feb 1919. Birth Control Review Sanger says that Birth Control will clear the way for eugenics and the elimination of the unfit.
Sanger writes, “Before eugenists and others who are laboring for racial betterment can succeed, they must first clear the way for Birth Control. Like the advocates of Birth Control, the eugenists, for instance, are seeking to assist the race toward the elimination of the unfit. Both are seeking a single end but they lay emphasis upon different methods.”
New CDC initiative targets births in Hispanic and Black teens:
The CDC says the “purpose of this program is to demonstrate the effectiveness of innovative, multicomponent, community wide initiatives in reducing rates of teen pregnancy and births in communities with the highest rates, with a focus on reaching African American and Latino/Hispanic youth aged 15–19 years.”
Just curious- why the focus on minority birth rates?
Does this concern anyone who has watched Maafa21?
TARGETING THE HISPANIC COMMUNITY?
The author of the 1924, Immigration Act, Harry Laughlin was a frequent published writer in Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger’s Birth Control Review. His eugenic ideas on forced sterilization were praised by the group. Laughlin was not only President and a founder of the American Eugenics Society he was also, on the Citizens Committee on Planned Parenthood published in Margaret Sanger’s Birth Control Review, was on the National Council of the American Birth Control League, now known as Planned Parenthood.
In 1967, Cesar Chavez, Mexican Farm Labor Activist asked this about Planned Parenthood, “Who the hell is getting the pill – the Mexican and the Negro. Do you want to wipe us out?”
A former abortion clinic chain owner Edward Allred once told the San Diego Union: “Population control is too important to be stopped by some right-wing pro-life types. Take the new influx of Hispanic immigrants. Their lack of respect for democracy and social order is frightening. I hope I can do something to stem that tide. I’d set up a clinic in Mexico for free if I could. Maybe one in Calexico would help. The survival of our society could be at stake.“
Allred added: “When a sullen black woman of 17 or 18 can decide to have a baby and get welfare and food stamps and become a burden to us all, it’s time to stop. In parts of South Los Angeles having babies for welfare is the only industry these people have.”
Sanger predicts that Birth Control Pills will should be used among the “most ignorant people.”
“ I consider that the world and almost our civilization for the next twenty-five years, is going to depend upon a simple, cheap, safe contraceptive to be used in poverty stricken slums, jungles, and among the most ignorant people. Even this will not be sufficient, because I believe that now, immediately, there should be national sterilization for certain dysgenic types of our population who are being encouraged to breed and would die out were the government not feeding them.” ~ Planned Parenthood Founder, Margaret Sanger, 1950
Sanger also said, “We who advocate Birth Control, on the other hand, lay all our emphasis upon stopping not only the reproduction of the unfit but upon stopping all reproduction when there is not economic means of providing proper care for those who are born in health. …While I personally believe in the sterilization of the feeble-minded, the insane and syphilitic, I have not been able to discover that these measures are more than superficial deterrents when applied to the constantly growing stream of the unfit… Eugenics without Birth Control seems to us a house builded upon the sands. It is at the mercy of the rising stream of the unfit…”
Blacks also saw Birth Control as a step towards reducing their population:
“Into the black community stepped Planned Parenthood; only when they came into the black community they’ve become Planned-Black-Genocide.” ~ Black civil rights activist, William Bouie Haden
On the Planned Parenthood Tumblr page, the eugenics and racist founded organization shows a black woman dancing to the idea of free birth control under ObamaCare
For YEARS, Black Americans fought the idea of free birth control in minority communities , in fact many continue to speak out today.
In the 1940’s –50’ Certain segments of the black community mistrusted the underlying intention of both private and government efforts with respect to contraception. Some blacks in particular became skeptical of the increasing push for contraceptive dispersal in poor urban neighborhoods, accusing contraceptive proponents of promoting nothing less than “black genocide.”
In 1962, the National Urban League rescinded its support of contraception, and so did many local NAACP chapters. Twenty-eight percent of the Blacks surveyed in the late 1960’s agreed that “ encouraging blacks to use birth control is comparable to trying to eliminate this group from society”
At a meeting of the Council of Philadelphia Anti-Poverty Action Committee in 1965, Cecil Moore, president of the local NAACP chapter, condemned a Planned Parenthood program for northern Philadelphia because 70 percent of the population was black. Labeling the plan “replete with everything to help the Negroes commit race suicide,” Moore convinced the committee to table the proposal. Around the same time, Donald A. Bogue, a Chicago activist, reported that the birthrate of blacks in Chicago had fallen from 39.4 per thousand births in 1960 to 29.1 per thousand births in 1965.
At the White House Conference on Civil Rights sponsored by Lyndon Johnson, Cecil Moore made this attack on population control, “And I have noticed that every time that we talk about population and planned parenthood, the only country I find that wants to limit poverty by limiting the poor- they always want to do it in Africa and South America and Asia , but I never heard them talk about doing it in Paris or England. Then I hope I am not belaboring the point, but don’t take that away from Negroes because we don’t have much else.”
In 1962, Whitney Young, a former leader of the Urban League, revoked his group’s support of contraception.
Also in 1962 Marvin Davies, head of the Florida NAACP, rejected contraception and argued that black women needed to produce large numbers of babies until the black population comprised 30-35 percent of Americans; only then would blacks be able to affect the power structure. (SOURCE: Journal of Social History, Birth control and the black community in the 1960s: genocide or power politics?, by Simone M. Caron, (Spring 1998)
In September 1965 the NAACP opposed a $91,000 federal grant for the dissemination of birth control information in North Philadelphia. The NAACP charged Planned Parenthood, which had applied for the grant, with attempting to “help Negroes commit racial suicide.” Although many blacks believed the pill was a benevolent technological advance, black nationalists tended to regard it as a symbol of genocide. A Planned Parenthood official explained to Ebony magazine: “Many Negro women have told our workers, There are two kinds of pills – one for white women and one for us…and the one for us causes sterilization.‘” This kind of paranoia frustrated and angered birth control activists.
On September 10,1967, H. Rap Brown, National Chairman of the Students Nonviolent Coordinating Committee urged an audience of 1000 that the Vietnam War and Birth Control programs are part of a genocide against Negroes. ( SOURCE: The New York Times: Rap Brown Calls Nation on ‘Eve’ of a Negro Revolt: 9/11/1967)
A May 1969 issue of The Liberator, told readers, “ For us to speak in favor of birth control for Afro-Americans would be comparable to speaking in favor of genocide.”
In articles and in cartoons in the Black press, the Pill was depicted as a wolf in sheep’s clothing.
A poster circulated by the Berkley group: EROS, Endeavor to Raise Our Size- likened the Pill to lynching. Lynching represented “Birth Control Then…the crude way.” Under the image of a woman reaching for her oral contraceptives was the caption: “Now, the Smooth Way.” (SOURCE: Devices and Desires, a History of Contraceptives in America, by By Andrea Tone Published 2002, Hill and Wang; PP.254-256, google books online)
FILM EXPOSES EUGENICS IN AMERICA AS A MEANS OF TARGETING THE BLACK COMMUNITY
Produced in 2009 by Life Dynamics, Inc. and shown in theaters, community centers, university campuses, and churches nationwide, a powerful film about the eugenics movement in America, Maafa21 documents how, in the early 1960’s and 1970’s the Black Civil Rights Community began to see that there was an organized effort to limit the black population with abortion and birth control.
According to Maafa21, a growing number of 1960s civil-rights activists had recognized that “family planning” was a code word for abortion and birth control and that it was being pushed by the government as a way to avoid putting money into the black community.
In June of 1970 the Black Caucus walked out of the First National Congress on Optimum Population and Environment being held in Chicago, according to the film.
Felton Alexander of the National Urban League and the Chairman of the Black Caucus said the action was taken because of clear and unmistakable evidence that the purpose of the conference was to legitimize the extermination of the black population.
In 1971, the Detroit Chapter of the Black Panther Party, expelled one of its leaders from the organization for simply asking where she could obtain an abortion. At the time the party proclaimed that, “A true revolutionary cares about the people–he cares to the point that he is willing to put his life on the line to help the masses of poor and oppressed people. He would never think of killing his unborn child.”
Also in 1971, Black civil rights activist, William Bouie Haden, observed, “Into the black community stepped Planned Parenthood; only when they came into the black community they’ve become Planned-Black-Genocide. Planned Parenthood for whites, birth control for blacks.”
In 1971, Comedian, Dick Gregory, wrote an article entitled, My Answer to Genocide, which was published in Ebony Magazine.
In that article, Gregory wrote, “There is ample evidence that government programs designed for poor black folks emphasize birth control and abortion availability, both measures obviously designed to limit black population.”
In 1973, Black Catholic Priest, Father George Clements told Jet Magazine, “I believe the entire question of abortions is just one more in the continuous series of events to eliminate the Black population.”
African-American physician Dr. Charles Greenlee who had been a staunch supporter of Planned Parenthood became suspicious of the organization after noticing that black neighborhoods in his city were, as he described it, “saturated” with Planned Parenthood facilities, while nearby white neighborhoods that were just as poor did not have a single one.
In 1971, Jesse Jackson observed, “Contraceptives will become a form of drug warfare against the helpless in this nation.”
In 1975, Jesse Jackson called for the ban of abortion through a Constitutional Amendment, and in an interview in Jet Magazine he referred to abortion as genocide.
Then, in 1977, Jackson made this observation, “It is strange that they chose to start talking about population control at the same time that Black people in America and people of color around the world are demanding their rightful place as human citizens and their rightful share of the material wealth in the world.”
In 1968, Samuel Yette became the first African-American reporter hired by Newsweek Magazine where he quickly rose to the position of Washington D.C. bureau correspondent. Three years later, he wrote a book in which he documented that there were high-level plans within the United States to use birth control and abortion as genocide against African-Americans. Immediately after his book was released to the public, Mr. Yette was fired.
In 1985, Yette, told the Afro American, that “Given the history of the genocidal practices, and public policies impacted on black people in the society, it is barely believable that any significant number of black people at all could condone, much less demand, public policies and financing the destruction of human life on either side of the womb.”
Civil rights activist, Mrs. Fannie Lou Hamer, once said, “It is still a society in which an injured man must show his ability to pay before getting hospital services, but his daughter or wife can be aborted or fed birth control pills, at public expense…”.
Click: Today African American leaders are once again awakening to the tragedy of abortion and Planned Parenthood in their community.
“When we said we would no longer sit at the back of the bus, a place was being reserved for us down at the abortion clinic.” ~ Dr. Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in Maafa21.
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 but the Hispanic community is also under attack.
In Life Dynamics’ (producer of Maafa21)recent research,Racial Targeting Report, they document unmistakable evidence that the family planning establishment is also ratcheting up its efforts to deal with the Hispanic population.
The targeting of the Black community has been going on for years now the Hispanic community is in the cross hairs- below are some links to additional blogs where I have written on this topic:
Then the entire racist angle of Immigration has Planned Parenthood founders all over it ( Read here )
Planned Parenthood, already accused of targeting minority communities has been targeting the Latino community thru the media ( read here) and is associated with a group who encourages Mexican women to have abortions ( read here) And Planned Parenthood was tied to those who sterilized women in Guatemala ( Read here) –
