Chinese national denied asylum because she reported pregnant women subjected to forced abortions

A Chinese National who claims she was wrongfully denied asylum in the United States because she reported pregnant women pregnant in violation of China’s one-child family planning policies, has lost her bid before the United States Court of Appeals, Second Circuit.

On February 25, 2008, Suzhen Meng was admitted to the United States as a nonimmigrant visitor with authorization to remain for six months.

Five months later, on July 24, 2008, Meng filed for asylum stating that she had suffered past political persecution when, as a public security officer in her local community, she refused to collect a security fee from residents and wrote a letter to the local public security bureau alleging that the police chief was corrupt.

Meng asserted that, as a result of these actions, her passport was confiscated and she was arrested and held in custody for 14 days, during which time a guard slapped her in the face several times and fellow prisoners beat her on instruction of the guards.

Ten months later, Meng’s passport was returned when she promised not to engage in any further anti-government activities, whereupon she left China.

After having overstayed her visa Meng was later brought before a US immigration hearing.

During that hearing, she testified that in her twenty-two years as a public security officer her duties included reporting all pregnant women to China’s family planning office, including women pregnant in violation of state limitations.

Meng told the judge that she understood that when she reported a woman to authorities, that woman would be punished, typically by being forced to undergo an abortion or sterilization.

In addition, Meng testified to having seen women dragged away forcibly by the police.

Meng said that despite the severe consequences to women who were reported as pregnant against China law, she continued to make her reports. In her attempt to receive sympathy she claimed that she sometimes advised women whom she would report as being pregnant to go into hiding or to flee.

On November 3, 2014 the United States Court of Appeals, Second Circuit upheld the decision of the Immigration Judge in denying Meng’s application for asylum. That judge had ruled that Meng’s active assistance in the persecution of pregnant women barred her from receiving asylum and ordered her removal from the United States.

In writing the court’s opinion, Judges Reena Raggi explained that asylum is a form of discretionary relief granted when a person shows either past persecution or a well-founded fear of future persecution.

“Meng does not–and cannot–dispute that forced abortions and involuntary sterilizations constitute persecution on a protected ground,” Raggi wrote. “Nor does she dispute that women in her community who became pregnant in violation of family planning policy were subjected to such persecution.”

Despite the fact that Meng attempted to claim she would be persecuted if asylum were denied the court was not persuaded and called Meng the persecutor, writing that, “Meng’s reports regularly resulted in persecution, she knew that, and she nevertheless continued to report.”

“Meng engaged in such reporting over a period of two decades. In short, her assistance in persecution was not a single, marked departure from her duties, but a regular, and important, aspect of her duties. While Meng may have encouraged some women to hide or flee to avoid the persecution that she knew would follow from her conduct, the record indicates that Meng nevertheless persisted in reporting women with unauthorized pregnancies as long as she served as a public security official. Accordingly, because the record evidence was sufficient to support a finding that Meng assisted in persecution, we identify no legal error in the agency’s determination that the persecutor bar rendered Meng ineligible for asylum or withholding of removal,” the denial of review states.

Responding to the Immigration Crisis

Posted in Hispanic, Immigration with tags , , , , , , on July 8, 2014 by saynsumthn

As I write this blog on the Immigration crisis I am watching the O’Reilly factor. I just finished listening to Conservative radio host, Mark Levin. As a Conservative myself one would think my personal views on immigration and more specifically illegal immigration would be simple: control the border and stop the bleeding?

But…simple is not how I would describe my very conflicting views.

Conservative talking points on illegal immigration are persuasive:

• Open borders let in criminals – drug cartels – human traffickers
• The crisis on the border will increase disease with many immigrants carrying lice, scabies, swine flu, Tuberculosis and even leprosy.
• We can’t afford these people who will inevitably tax our welfare system
• Immigrants will make more voters for the Democrat Party – this is strictly political

Well…I must admit….these points are compelling.

Politically, I totally get why there is a call to deport illegals and control the border after all, no one want chaos in our nation.

Years ago, I lived in Florida where Cuban immigration was the issue.

In that crisis, I do not recall such political division the way it comes across when you discuss immigration on the Southern border.

Today, illegal immigration is muddied with stories of children, risking death, to cross into our nation. That definitely tugs in my heart. In fact, looking back on the Cuban immigration issue, I was living in Florida when a young Cuban immigrant child was deported after his mother died at sea struggling to get him to America.

His name was Elián González and it was Republicans fighting against the Democrat Clinton administration to keep him here.

Elianraid2

Gonzalez was almost 6 years old 1999 when a fisherman found him off the coast of Florida, clinging to an inner tube after his mother and others fleeing Cuba drowned trying to reach American soil.
Republicans ELien

He was taken to live with relatives in Miami but his father, who was separated from his mother and had remained on the island, demanded that the boy be sent back, saying Elian was taken without his consent.

Bill Clinton’s attorney general Janet Reno ruled that he had to be returned.

So what changed? Maybe it is the terror threat – maybe the economy – who knows? I don’t.

Today the division is ripping our country apart. We can hardly come together to solve these critical issues.

It would definitely appear to me that the Obama administration is using the immigration crisis by refusing to do what is needed to secure the border.

On the other hand, many of the anti-immigration organizations Conservatives rely on for facts on this crisis are muddied up in eugenics.

WHAT?

Yes…as a researcher, I happen to know that many of the groups Conservatives are listening to on this immigration issue are founded in ideology we usually oppose.

Let me explain.

One of the top anti-immigration organizations in the nation today is FAIR, the Federation of American Immigration Reform.

tanton185 FAIR was founded by John Tanton a former board member of Planned Parenthood who also helped found the group: Zero Population Growth.

FAIR BOD 2001

On his website, Tanton describes himself this way, “John’s conviction that continued human population growth was a large part of the conservation problem led him to chair the National Sierra Club Population Committee (1971-74), and to the national board of Zero Population Growth (1973-78, including a term as president from 1975-77). In 1979, as immigration grew to be the significant part of the U.S. population problem, John Tanton founded FAIR to address mass immigration reform. John is the author of numerous articles, editorials and opinion pieces, many of which can be found by searching under John Tanton in The Social Contract archives.”

FAIR’s website reads, “John Tanton, M.D…Dr. Tanton is the original founder of FAIR. He became interested in immigration to the United States through his long-standing concerns about the effects of unplanned and uncontrolled population growth and resource depletion. He was the national President of Zero Population Growth from 1975 to 1977 and was Chairman of its Immigration Study Committee from 1973 to 1975. He was organizer and President of the Northern Michigan Planned Parenthood chapter. From 1971 to 1975, Dr. Tanton served as Chairman of the Sierra Club National Population Committee. He is currently editor and publisher of The Social Contract, a quarterly public policy journal. He was a 1990 recipient of the Chevron Conservation Award. Dr. Tanton is a graduate of Michigan State University and the University of Michigan Medical School.”

Tanton also nurtured the anti-immigration groups Numbers USA and the Center for Immigration Studies.

Another FAIR board member, Sarah G. Epstein, now serves on Planned Parenthood’s board in Washington. Epstein also serves on the Pathfinder International board founded by eugenics financeer, Clarence Gamble. In fact, Epstein is the daughter of Gamble, and as she serves on Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR’s) Board : According to the North Carolina Winston-Salem Journal, “Gamble helped found the Human Betterment League of North Carolina in 1947 to promote eugenic sterilization, and Journal research shows a long history of abuses in the N.C. sterilization program – abuses that Gamble consistently glossed over..” One major eugenics promoter which Gamble linked up with was Margaret Sanger.

Also, on the list is the man who helped legalize abortion in Colorado in 1967, Richard Lamm. Colorado became the first state in the US to legalize abortion.

I have blogged about these ties before. My research is no secret and can be viewed here , here and here.

What absolutely confuses me is why Conservatives and especially pro-life Christian Conservatives would interview and promote groups that were founded in eugenics by Planned Parenthood and population control ideologues?

I am not saying that we should have no views on immigration- not at all. But, come on, shouldn’t pro-life Christians at least avoid these groups to make their points?

But, I digress.

On this crisis, I remain conflicted. Seeing children in need pulls at my heart strings.

Listening to all the talking points on the possible dangers pulls on my fears.

Red flags go up when I hear stigmatizing descriptions of immigrants taxing our welfare rolls or spreading disease.

Is this not the same rhetoric we heard to discourage freeing Black slaves or taking in the Jews from Germany or accepting other immigrant groups who made their way to our shores?
Slaves carried DiseaseImmigrants Disease

So where do we draw the line? Compassion or policy?

I still do not have the answers. One thing I do know, as a Christian, I am called to show compassion to every human being. I am blessed to have been born in the United States. I would not hesitate to help any fellow human being and especially a child in need legal or illegal.

On the other hand, mayhem and chaos are not good for my fellow Americans either. What we are facing is a crisis not just at our border but in the very heart of this nation. This crisis is not the fault of poor illegal immigrants bleeding across our borders – no- this is a crisis of moral decay leading to a country that is ripping apart.

I do not have the answers here but I know who does.

Jesus through His Bride, the Church, many of whom may be immigrants now seeking refuge into this country, has a solution.

Perhaps God is trying to show us that we are in desperate need of Him, in need of real solutions and answers.

I remain conflicted. I hate seeing illegal activity so blatant on our border. Breaking our laws shows disrespect for this nation and it should not be taken lightly.

In addition, I despise American citizens being turned down for jobs because an illegal immigrant can do it cheaper.

I join many Americans concerned that porous borders allow terrorists who will kill Americans and immigrants alike into this nation.

But- deep in my heart – I know that America has snubbed our nose at Almighty God. We have executed 55 million unborn children with abortion – we export pornography – and our God is entertainment.

If I look at this crisis spiritually I will acknowledge that the illegal immigration crisis is yet another symptom crying out for the ultimate cure in America-that we bend our knee in repentance and seek Divine intervention and wisdom.

This is not the first crisis America has faced and it won’t be the last.

But, how we respond may have changed over time.

In 1774 John Hancock penned these wise words in his time of crisis, “We think it is incumbent upon this people to humble themselves before God on account of their sins. He hath been pleased in His righteous judgement to suffer a great calamity to befall us, as the present controversy between Great Britain and the Colonies. [And] also to implore the Divine Blessing upon us, that by the assistance of His grace, we may be enabled to reform whatever is amiss among us, that so God may be pleased to continue to us the blessings we enjoy, and remove the tokens of His displeasure, by causing harmony and union to be restored.”

In 1781, Thomas Jefferson made this powerful statement, “God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people, that these liberties are of the Gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever.”

Yes, on today’s illegal immigration crisis I remain conflicted – but prayerful.

Until a Divine solution comes please join me in lifting up America before Almighty God that He will purify our hearts, send revival to this nation and give us the wisdom to handle these critical issues facing us today.

Abortion rights org honors anti-immigration advocate who promotes population control

Posted in FAIR, Immigration, NARAL with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 27, 2013 by saynsumthn

naral logo 2008 election

According to a tweet to NARAL the abortion group honored Richard Lamm, who promotes anti-immigration thru several organizations.

The Southern Poverty Law Center accuses several anti-immigration groups of racism.

NARAL Honors Richard Lamm

According to Image 2050, Richard “Dick” Lamm: the former Governor of Colorado is long-time associate of Tanton. Lamm has long served on the board of advisers for the Federation of American Immigration (FAIR), the group Tanton founded in 1979. Lamm was a part of the Tanton-inspired attempt to hi-jack the Sierra Club’s board in 2003, after the group dropped population politics from its agenda in 1996. Lamm has also served on PFIR’s board since its launch. In the past, the former Governor has attacked immigrants by regarding their presence in the United States to the Denver Post as follows: “this onslaught of new people and new cultures [is] diluting what we are and who we are.” He is also on the national board of advisers of an official FAIR state contact group, Californians for Population Stabilization (CAPS), which like FAIR has received funding from the pro-eugenics Pioneer Fund.

Richard Lamm FAIR

In 1967, Colorado became the first state in the US to legalize abortion.

Colorado’s bill was carefully steered through the lower house by then Denver Representative Richard D. Lamm. Lamm was the abortion bill’s principle sponsor. The abortion bill was the first one to pass a state legislature in the United States setting off a domino effect of other bills in various other states. It was signed into law by then Governor John A. Love.

Richard D. Lamm is Co-Director of the Institute for Public Policy Studies at the University of Denver, and the former three-term Governor of Colorado, (1975-1987).

Today Lamm sits on the boards of several anti-immigration organizations the Federation of American Immigration Reform (FAIR) and (PFIR), Progressives for Immigration Reform, and (CAPS), Californians for Population Stabilization.

Lamm has always been in the forefront of political change. As a first year legislator, he drafted and succeeded in passing the nation’s first liberalized abortion law. He was an early leader of the environmental movement, and was President of the First National Conference on Population and The Environment. Lamm was elected to three terms as Colorado’s top elected official, and in serving as Governor from January 1975 and retiring in January 1987, he was the longest-serving Governor in Colorado’s history to that date.

In a press release about his newest book, THE BRAVE NEW WORLD OF HEALTH CARE, Lam writes about limits, rationing and denial to Americans of some of the health care they have come to expect. “We are going to have to have a candid dialog and set priorities on spending limits at the beginning of life, the end of life, and all points in between. No modern nation can build a health care system an individual at a time. The new questions in health care will not only be What do we need? but What can society afford? I hope this book makes Americans more aware of that.” Former Colorado Governor Richard Lamm is well known for speaking out about issues that politicians find too controversial to address, including his often misinterpreted “Duty to Die” speech in 1984. He was also a presidential candidate for the Reform Party.

Lamm’s position on the board the (FAIR) Federation of American Immigration Reform lays side by side founding notable population controllers as Paul Ehrlich and Garret Hardin.

Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger’s ‘Plan for Peace’: choice of segregation or sterilization of the “feebleminded”

Posted in Immigration, Margaret Sanger, Margaret Sanger on Segregation and sterilization, Planned Parenthood, Racism with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 12, 2011 by saynsumthn

Read this and tell me just how “PRO-CHOICE” this sounds and then ask why the nation’s largest abortion chain which is funded by US taxpayers to the tune of $1 MILLION DOLLARS A DAY – praises their founder Eugenics member- Margaret Sanger?

PlanforPeace

The following (A Plan for Peace, Margaret Sanger) was published in
Birth Control Review (April 1932, pp. 107-108):
A Plan for Peace
by MARGARET SANGER

First, put into action President Wilson’s fourteen points, upon which terms Germany and Austria surrendered to the Allies in 1918. Second, have Congress set up a special department for the study of population problems and appoint a Parliament of Population, the directors representing the various branches of science: this body to direct and control the population through birth rates and immigration, and to direct its distribution over the country according to national needs consistent with taste, fitness and interest of individuals.

The main objects of the Population Congress would be: to raise the level and increase the general intelligence of population.

a) to raise the level and increase the general intelligence of population.
b) to increase the population slowly by keeping the birth rate at its present level of fifteen per thousand, decreasing the death rate below its present mark of 11 per thousand.
c) to keep the doors of immigration closed to the entrance of certain aliens whose condition is known to be detrimental to the stamina of the race, such as feebleminded, idiots, morons, insane, syphilitic, epileptic, criminal, professional prostitutes, and others in this class barred by the immigration laws of 1924.
d) to apply a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is tainted, or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to offspring.
e) to insure the country against future burdens of maintenance for numerous offspring as may be born of feebleminded parents, by pensioning all persons with transmissible disease who voluntarily consent to sterilization.
f) to give certain dysgenic groups in our population their choice of segregation or sterilization.
g) to apportion farm lands and homesteads for these segregated persons where they would be taught to work under competent instructors for the period of their entire lives.

The first step would thus be to control the intake and output of morons, mental defectives, epileptics.

The second step would be to take an inventory of the secondary group such as illiterates, paupers, unemployables, criminals, prostitutes, dope-fiends; classify them in special departments under government medical protection, and segregate them on farms and open spaces as long as necessary for the strengthening and development of moral conduct.

Having corralled this enormous part of our population and placed it on a basis of health instead of punishment, it is safe to say that fifteen or twenty millions of our population would then be organized into soldiers of defense— defending the unborn against their own disabilities.

The third step would be to give special attention to the mothers’ health, to see that women who are suffering from tuberculosis, heart or kidney disease, toxic goitre, gonorrhea, or any disease where the condition of pregnancy disturbs their health are placed under public health nurses to instruct them in practical, scientific methods of contraception in order to safeguard their lives—thus reducing maternal mortality.

The above steps may seem to place emphasis on a health program instead of on tariffs, moratoriums and debts, but I believe that national health is the first essential factor in any program for universal peace.

With the future citizen safeguarded from hereditary taints, with five million mental and moral degenerates segregated, with ten million women and ten million children receiving adequate care, we could then turn our attention to the basic needs for international peace.

There would then be a definite effort to make population increase slowly and at a specified rate, in order to accommodate and adjust increasing numbers to the best social and economic system.

In the meantime we should organize and join an International League of Low Birth Rate Nations to secure and maintain World Peace !

Billboard focuses on racism of abortion in Hispanic Community

Posted in Abortion, Billboard, Eugenics, FAIR, Hispanic, Immigration, Planned Parenthood and Hispanics, Planned Parenthood and Immigration with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 8, 2011 by saynsumthn

A Latino advocacy group is charging that abortion providers are targeting their communities, making their frustration known with a jumbo billboard campaign in Los Angeles, California.

“It’s clear that Latinos are being targeted by organizations that promote abortion like Planned Parenthood,” said Alfonso Aguilar, executive director of the Latino Partnership for Conservative Principles, the group behind the billboard. “Many of their clinics are in Latino neighborhoods and communities.”

The text reads, “El lugar mas peligroso para un Latino es el vientre de su madre.” or “The most dangerous place for a Latino is in the womb.”

According to the Center for Disease Control, 22 percent of abortions in performed in America are done on Latinos, making them 2.7 times more likely to abort than non-Hispanic whites.

The ad campaign is meant to kick off a pro-life event called “Unidos por la Vida” (United for Life) Sunday at the LA Sports Arena. The gathering will be sponsored by the pro-life Latino group Manto de Guadalupe.

So…who cares ?????? Well…….

It is important to understand that Hispanic images involved with Planned Parenthood work for their ultimate goal of population control and eugenics:

Planned Parenthood, an organization founded on racist eugenic principles is making every attempt to draw in the Hispanic Community. In the same manner as they did during Margaret Sanger’s Negro Project where they targeted African Americans to change their view that they were about black genocide, Planned Parenthood is now “reaching out” to another minority group: Hispanics. Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood was a member of the American Eugenics Society – who was responsible for the “Immigration Laws” we have on the books today. She despised immigrants…..

Sanger’s History of Racism

Planned Parenthood founder, Margaret Sanger, was a member in good standing with the racist American Eugenics Society. Sanger had board members who were known for their racist writing and Sanger published many of those in her publications. Sanger called for parents to have a QUOTE: LICENSE TO BREED controlled by people who believed in her eugenic philosophy. She wanted all would be parents to go before her eugenic boards to request a “PERMIT TO BREED“.

Margaret Sanger once said, “More children from the fit, less from the unfit — that is the chief aim of birth control.” Birth Control Review, May 1919, p. 12

In Margaret Sanger’s, “Birth Control and Racial Betterment,” Feb 1919. Birth Control Review , Library of Congress Microfilm 131:0099B .
Sanger states, “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.

Eugenists emphasize the mating of healthy couples for the conscious purpose of producing healthy children, the sterilization of the unfit to prevent their populating the world with their kind and they may, perhaps, agree with us that contraception is a necessary measure among the masses of the workers, where wages do not keep pace with the growth of the family and its necessities in the way of food, clothing, housing, medical attention, education and the like.

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 unfitEugenics without Birth Control seems to us a house builded upon the sands. It is at the mercy of the rising stream of the unfit…

Sanger also called for those who were poor and what she considered to be “morons and immoral‘ , to be shipped to colonies where they would live in “Farms and Open Spaces” dedicated to brainwashing these so-called “inferior types” into having what Sanger called, “Better moral conduct”.

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

In addition, Planned Parenthood’s top award is called the Margaret Sanger Award, despite the fact that Sanger was an admitted Klan speaker. This is what Sanger wrote in her autobiography, “I accepted an invitation to talk to the women’s branch of the Ku Klux Klan…I saw through the door dim figures parading with banners and illuminated crosses…I was escorted to the platform, was introduced, and began to speak…In the end, through simple illustrations I believed I had accomplished my purpose. A dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered.” (Margaret Sanger: An Autobiography, P.366)

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

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.

Paul Lombardo, University of Virginia, writes, “In 1920, Laughlin appeared before the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Immigration and Naturalization. Using data for the U.S. Census Bureau and a survey of the number of foreign-born persons in jails, prisons and reformatories, he argued that the “American” gene pool was being polluted by a rising tide of intellectually and morally defective immigrants – primarily from eastern and southern Europe. Sympathetic to Laughlin’s message, Committee Chairman Albert Johnson of Washington State appointed Laughlin as “expert eugenics agent.”

In this capacity, Laughlin conducted research from 1921 to 1931. He took a fact-finding trip to Europe, used free postage to conduct large-scale surveys of charitable institutions and mental hospitals, and had his results published by the Government Printing Office. His research culminated in his 1924 testimony to Congress in support of a eugenically-crafted immigration restriction bill. The Eugenics Research Association displayed a chart beneath the Rotunda of the Capitol building in Washington showing the cost to taxpayers of supporting Laughlin’s “social inadequates.”

The resulting law, the Immigration Restriction Act of 1924, was designed consciously to halt the immigration of supposedly “dysgenic” Italians and eastern European Jews, whose numbers had mushroomed during the period from 1900 to 1920. The method was simply to scale the number of immigrants from each country in proportion to their percentage of the U.S. population in the 1890 census – when northern and western Europeans were the dominant immigrants. Under the new law, the quota of southern and eastern Europeans was reduced from 45% to 15%. The 1924 Act ended the greatest era of immigration in U.S. history.

Upon signing the Act, President Calvin Coolidge commented, “America must remain American.” This phrase would become the rallying cry of anti-immigration sentiment until after World War II. The eugenic intent of the 1924 law and the quota system it established remained in place until they were repealed by the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965.

Laughlin’s Eugenical Sterilization in the United States of 1922 was the culmination of an extensive study into why most states in the country (California being the only notable exception) were not participating in the sterilization of their mentally ill populations. One of the primary problems, in Laughlin’s assessment, was that the laws used by most of the state were highly flawed: they were either too poorly crafted to be constitutional (and many were ruled unconstitutional by state courts), or that they were too confusing in their wording to be used efficiently. To remedy this, Laughlin published a copy of his “Model Eugenical Sterilization Law,” a law which was carefully crafted to be both constitutional and heavily used. A state law derived from his model was passed by the state of Virginia in 1924, and found constitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court in the highly flawed case of Buck v. Bell in 1927. The ruling greatly increased the passing of sterilization laws and the use of eugenic sterilization through the period of the second World War. State sterilization programs resulted in the sterilization of over 64,000 mentally ill and developmentally disabled patients by the time they went into general disuse in the mid-1960s.

Laughlin would later go on to be a principle founder of the Pioneer Fund, and received an honorary degree by the University of Heidelberg in 1936 for his work behalf of the “science of racial cleansing.” The Nazi German state would sterilize many hundreds of thousands of people under their own sterilization laws. Laughlin was himself an epileptic, suitable for sterilization under his own law.

Meet some others who were published and friendly with Planned Parenthood founder: Margaret Sanger and the Nazis:

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, (More on Laughlin later)

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?”

One of the largest abortion businesses in California is Family Planning Associates (FPA), founded by Dr. Edward Allred. FPA also operates three of Chicago’s largest abortion facilities, which have performed thousands of abortions on black and Hispanic women.

Allred became a multi-millionaire racetrack owner from the profits of FPA abortions. He openly stated his racist philosophy in a 1980 interview with The San Diego Union. “Take the recent influx of Hispanic immigrants: Their lack of respect for democracy and social order is frightening,” he told the newspaper. “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… When a sullen black woman can decide to have a baby and get welfare and food stamps and become a burden to all of us it’s time to stop. In parts of South Los Angeles having babies for welfare in the only industry the people have.”

The Los Angeles Times reported that his California facilities were handling referrals made by Planned Parenthood.

BUT..Just how does Planned Parenthood view the hotly contested issue of “IMMIGRATION” ? The answers lie in reading and listening to those associated with Planned Parenthood and the abortion lobby:


Garrett Hardin was a leading eugenic ecologist, whose views influenced debates on abortion, immigration, foreign aid, overpopulation, and other provocative issues. Hardin was intensely concerned about overpopulation and deeply involved with Planned Parenthood and was funded by the Pioneer Fund.

In 1949 Garrett published his elementary biology text, Biology: Its Human Implications, later issued as Biology: Its Principles and Implications. Both texts were widely used throughout the nation. He became Professor of Human Ecology in 1963.

According to the Garret Hardin Society, in 1980, Planned Parenthood Federation of America awarded Hardin the infamous, Margaret Sanger Award. Another report in the “Social Contract” states that In 1979 he was awarded the Margaret Sanger Award for his support for the wider provision of birth control and population limitation.

In an interview with Skeptic magazine, in 1996, Hardin describes his involvement with the eugenic founded Planned Parenthood organization,
“I started being an activist for legalized abortion in 1963. I spent most of my external time on that issue until the Supreme Court reached the famous 1973 Roe v. Wade decision. I thought the fight was all over. Well, I was wrong. At the time, my wife and I were active in Planned Parenthood. She was on the local board of directors. The question came up in Planned Parenthood as to what our position should be on abortion. Some wanted to stay clear of it entirely because they realized there would he a lot of opposition. Fortunately, Planned Parenthood decided that it was a question of women’s rights. Abortion is above all other things a method of birth control. To put it another way, it’s a backstop for any system of birth control when the rest of the system fails. That decision to support the woman’s right to abortion put Planned Parenthood in a dangerous position. “

In a tribute written about Garrett and posted in the Garret Hardin Society website, Hardin’s hard core immigration position is praised, “Because fertility is low in the United States and Europe, Hardin believes that the problem of excessive population growth would be largely under control if it were not for immigration. He sees immigration as the major problem that will lead to increases in population in the economically developed world. To prevent this growth he advocates the reduction of immigration nearly to zero. In a striking metaphor, Hardin has on several occasions used the analogy of a nation as a lifeboat.5 A lifeboat can only hold a certain number of people. If more are taken on board, the lifeboat sinks and everyone will be drowned. The only rational course of action for those in a full lifeboat is to refuse to take anyone else on board. It is the same with a nation. “To survive,” he writes in his last book, Living Within Limits:

rich nations must refuse immigration to people who are poor because their governments are unable or unwilling to stop population growth.

In 1967, Colorado became the first state in the US to legalize abortion.

Colorado’s bill was carefully steered through the lower house by then Denver Representative Richard D. Lamm. Lamm was the abortion bill’s principle sponsor. The abortion bill was the first one to pass a state legislature in the United States setting off a domino effect of other bills in various other states. It was signed into law by then Governor John A. Love.

Richard D. Lamm is Co-Director of the Institute for Public Policy Studies at the University of Denver, and the former three-term Governor of Colorado, (1975-1987).

Today Lamm sits on the boards of several anti-immigration organizations the Federation of American Immigration Reform (FAIR) and (PFIR), Progressives for Immigration Reform, and (CAPS), Californians for Population Stabilization.

Lamm’s position on the board the (FAIR) Federation of American Immigration Reform lays side by side founding notable population controllers as Paul Ehrlich and Garret Hardin.

What most people are unaware of is that many anti-immigration organization have deep ties to the abortion and population control movement. Groups like FAIR, PFIR, Numbers USA, Caps, Pioneer Fund and others have connections to abortion clinics, Planned Parenthood and Eugenics.

Federation of American Immigration Reform (FAIR)

If you look at the history and website of the Federation of American Immigration Reform (FAIR) you will note that many on FAIR’s board are former Planned Parenthood members and leaders, abortion clinic workers, and Zero Population Control Activists ! Just Google John Tanton– FAIR’S founder and see his links to Planned Parenthood in Michigan- In Fact, FAIR’s board member, Sarah G. Epstein, now serves on Planned Parenthood’s board in Washington. Epstein also serves on the Pathfinder International board founded by eugenics financeer, Clarence Gamble. In fact, Epstein is the daughter of Gamble, and as she serves on Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR’s) Board : According to the North Carolina Winston-Salem Journal, “Gamble helped found the Human Betterment League of North Carolina in 1947 to promote eugenic sterilization, and Journal research shows a long history of abuses in the N.C. sterilization program – abuses that Gamble consistently glossed over..” One major eugenics promoter which Gamble linked up with was Margaret Sanger.

In 1939, Planned Parenthood Founder, Margaret Sanger , and member of the American Eugenics Society, began The Negro Project. The Negro Project was but a precursor to what eugenicists wanted to implement on a much larger scale, by convincing leaders in the African American Community to support Planned Parenthood under the guise of “helping the black man.”

“The main objectives of the [proposed] Population Congress is to…apply a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is already tainted, or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to offspring.”

– Margaret Sanger, “Plan for Peace”, 1932 Senate hearings


Read what Planned Parenthood Founder, Margaret Sanger, wrote in a letter to Pathfinder Founder, Clarence Gamble ,

“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.”

Clarence Gamble, mentioned above funded the North Carolina Eugenics Society. Click Here : Clarence Gamble. Gamble also supported Margaret Sanger’s Birth Control Movement. Sanger and many of her board members and presidents were members of the American Eugenics Society.

Listen to what the State of North Carolina’s Eugenic Board (Funded by Sanger supporter- Clarence Gamble) did to this “African American woman” : Elaine Riddick
( Interview From the 2.5 hour film: Maafa21)

Back to Pathfinder
Pathfinder International is currently run by board members who are supporters of Planned Parenthood, doctors for Planned Parenthood, or are Board members of Planned Parenthood, and other population control organizations. In May of 2010, Pathfinder International , which Epstein served with and also issued The Memorandum of Understanding with International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF). According to a press release, the MOU establishes a jointly agreed framework for continued collaboration between the two organizations. The documents reads in part, “IPPF and Pathfinder share a common commitment to improve the lives and promote the reproductive health and rights of individuals and couples. Together, Pathfinder and IPPF have entered into this agreement to facilitate deeper collaboration to promote sexual and reproductive health and rights globally…” Reproductive Rights is code for abortion on demand !

IPPF stands for “International Planned Parenthood Federation” , so you can see that on top of the eugenics founding of both Pathfinder and Planned Parenthood- they have agreed to work together because their goals are the same.

Back to FAIR:

Also on FAIR’s board is Joyce Tarnow a former Abortion Clinic Owner from Florida – currently on FAIR’s National Board of Advisers . Tarnow, who recently retired from her abortion business to work in anti-immigration work full time, has made stunning comments about Haiti in the past and recently reinforced her outrageous point of view after the earthquake . Read her views of Haitians here: Florida abortionist on Haiti, “Stew in your own juices” More on Tarnow’s Darwinian beliefs in an interview from the film: Maafa21 clipped below:

FAIR’s Founder: John Tanton-“Population Control” motive for “Immigration” work

In 1975: John Tanton the founder of FAIR wrote The Case for Passive Eugenics You can read that here

In These Times reporter CHRISTOPHER HAYES, writes that as early as the ’50s, Tanton ( FAIR’s founder) avidly read reports from the Population Reference Bureau and by the time long time population control advocate: Paul Ehrlich’s book “The Population Bomb” was published, Tanton and his wife, Mary Lou had already started work on the first Northern Michigan chapter of Planned Parenthood. “I believed in the multiplication tables,” says Tanton. “Since I was a physician and could do something about birth control, it struck me that this was where I could make my contribution to the conservation movement.”

Some history on Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest abortion chain of clinics and they are well funded by many population control and eugenics organizations , including our own federal government. Planned Parenthood sets up their abortion centers primarily in immigrant and minority neighborhoods, making sure from the inside of the USA that the numbers of minorities are kept down. This is called “Negative Eugenics” and Planned Parenthood Founder, Margaret Sanger wrote quote substantially about this in her publication, the Birth Control Review. She also allowed many racist and eugenic writers to be published there. One such writer and Board member of Sanger’s American Birth Control League (later renamed Planned Parenthood) was Lothrop Stoddard, often quoted by the KLAN.
Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger was a featured speaker for the KLAN. Sanger admitted in her autobiography that she was invited at LEAST a dozen times to speak to the KLAN and now Planned Parenthood’s highest award is named in Sanger’s honor. The KLAN, last I heard was a “RACIST” Organization, yet no one condemns Sanger including Planned Parenthood. Sanger and many of Planned Parenthood’s founding board members were also card carrying members of the racist American Eugenics Society ! Margaret Sanger believed in EUGENICS and founded Planned Parenthood based on that belief ! For details on Sanger’s racism and factual information on how Planned Parenthood has taken racist donations, watch the film mentioned above: Maafa21 (http://www.maafa21.com)

Pioneer Fund:
Pioneer Fund’s eugenic roots also connect to Planned Parenthood. In Fact, most of the “Founders” of Pioneer Fund also worked closely with Planned Parenthood’s founder Margaret Sanger. Harry Laughlin and Frederick Osborn , both founders of Pioneer Fund were members of the American Eugenics Society and members of Sanger’s American Birth Control League which changed it’s name to Planned Parenthood, they also wrote regularly in Sanger’s Birth Control Review. Laughlin and Osborn also signed Sanger’s “Citizens Committee for Planned Parenthood” published in her review in April of 1938.


According to Truman State University , Laughlin was placed in charge of the Eugenics Record Office of the Department of Genetics of the Carnegie Institute of Washington, D. C., from its origin in 1910 until 1921 and director from 1921 until 1940. Dr Laughlin served as the eugenics expert for the Committee on Immigration and Naturalization, U. S. House of Representatives from 1921 to 1931; the Eugenics Associate to the Municipal Court at Chicago, 1921 to 1930; the U. S. immigration agent to Europe for the Department of Labor from 1923 to 1924; and was a member of the permanent Immigration Commission of the International Labor Office of the League of Nations in 1925.

He also was a member of the Galton Society, the Eugenics Research Association, the American Society of International Law, the American Statistical Associate, president of the American Eugenics Society 1927-28, associate editor of the Eugenical News from 1916 to 1939, secretary of the Third International Congress of Eugenics in 1932, and president of the Pioneer Fund, Incorporated, from its origin until 1941.

Laughlin published numerous articles and books on eugenics, eugenical sterilization, immigration, genetics, and various phases of inheritance including racing capacity in thoroughbred horses. It is his work on eugenical sterilization and immigration restriction for which he is best known. Laughlin’s Eugenical Sterilization in the United States established him as an “expert” on the topic. His model sterilization laws were used by many of the more than 30 states that passed eugenics sterilization laws. Germany’s 1933 sterilization laws were also modeled after Laughlin’s. Laughlin’s immigration studies, which seemed to support the idea that recent immigrants from Southern and Eastern Europe had a higher percentage of “socially inadequate” persons than other immigrants, led to the highly restrictive immigration quota system of 1924 which favored immigrants from Northern Europe.

Some history about how Laughlin influenced the 1924 Immigration Act:
According to Paul Lombardo, University of Virginia
In 1911, Immigration Restriction League President Prescott Hall asked his former Harvard classmate Charles Davenport of the Eugenics Record Office (ERO) for assistance to influence Congressional debate on immigration. Davenport recommended a survey to determine the national origins of “hereditary defectives” in American prisons, mental hospitals and other charitable institutions. Davenport appointed ERO colleague Harry Laughlin to manage the research program.

The Public Health Service (PHS), whose duties included performing medical inspections of disembarking passengers at Ellis Island, also adopted eugenic arguments to help stem the flood of “inferior stock” represented by the new immigrants. Beginning in 1914, the Surgeon General and a number of senior officers in the PHS became publicly aligned with the eugenics movement. They took prominent roles in eugenic organizations and published articles to support the eugenicists’ position in the immigration restriction debate. The key role of PHS physicians as medical guardians of U.S. ports – particularly at Ellis Island – gave the PHS additional credibility.

Without specific support from eugenicists, by 1917, Congress had expanded the legal definition of those “likely to become a public charge” to include: “all idiots, imbeciles, feebleminded persons, epileptics, insane persons…,” “persons of constitutional psychopathic inferiority…, and” “mentally or physically defective..,” Later involvement of eugenicists further broadened that definition by specifying the immigrant groups most likely to represent what Laughlin called the “socially inadequate.”

In 1920, Laughlin appeared before the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Immigration and Naturalization. Using data for the U.S. Census Bureau and a survey of the number of foreign-born persons in jails, prisons and reformatories, he argued that the “American” gene pool was being polluted by a rising tide of intellectually and morally defective immigrants – primarily from eastern and southern Europe. Sympathetic to Laughlin’s message, Committee Chairman Albert Johnson of Washington State appointed Laughlin as “expert eugenics agent.”

In this capacity, Laughlin conducted research from 1921 to 1931. He took a fact-finding trip to Europe, used free postage to conduct large-scale surveys of charitable institutions and mental hospitals, and had his results published by the Government Printing Office. His research culminated in his 1924 testimony to Congress in support of a eugenically-crafted immigration restriction bill. The Eugenics Research Association displayed a chart beneath the Rotunda of the Capitol building in Washington showing the cost to taxpayers of supporting Laughlin’s “social inadequates.”

The resulting law, the Immigration Restriction Act of 1924, was designed consciously to halt the immigration of supposedly “dysgenic” Italians and eastern European Jews, whose numbers had mushroomed during the period from 1900 to 1920. The method was simply to scale the number of immigrants from each country in proportion to their percentage of the U.S. population in the 1890 census – when northern and western Europeans were the dominant immigrants. Under the new law, the quota of southern and eastern Europeans was reduced from 45% to 15%. The 1924 Act ended the greatest era of immigration in U.S. history.

Upon signing the Act, President Calvin Coolidge commented, “America must remain American.” This phrase would become the rallying cry of anti-immigration sentiment until after World War II. The eugenic intent of the 1924 law and the quota system it established remained in place until they were repealed by the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965.

Numbers USA , founder Roy Beck, and their ties to John Tanton/Planned Parenthood

Groups like the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) and its research arm, the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), are the inheritors of the Progressive Movement’s anti-immigration mantle. John Tanton, who founded FAIR, CIS, Numbers USA and a plethora of other anti-immigration groups, is a self-described progressive who first became involved in public policy issues in the Sierra Club and Planned Parenthood, later becoming president of Zero Population Growth. John Tanton mentored Roy Beck , who then founded Numbers USA with Tanton’s help.

NUMBERSUSA EDUCATION AND RESEARCH FOUNDATION BOARD OF DIRECTORS

From the website of Numbers USA: Roy Beck Founder of Numbers USA

Roy H. Beck is the Executive Director and President of NumbersUSA Education and Research Foundation. One of the nation’s first environment-beat newspaper reporters in the 1960s and a journalist for more than 25 years, Mr. Beck became a full-time policy analyst of immigration and U.S. population issues in 1991. He has written four books on immigration, environment and the U.S. labor market, and on ethics, religion and public policy. He is co-author of numerous studies of sprawl and has been published in scores of magazines, academic journals and newspapers. He founded NumbersUSA in 1996. Mr. Beck has annually led teenagers on Habitat for Humanity work trips since 1990, is an enthusiastic guitarist, and has served in nearly all capacities of leadership at Mount Olivet United Methodist Church, Arlington, Virginia.

Don Weeden is the Executive Director of the Weeden Foundation which supports a wide range of programs that aim to preserve biodiversity, nationally and internationally. Prior to taking that, Don had a nearly 25-year career in the international population and economic development field, serving in various field and management positions for Columbia University, International Planned Parenthood Federation, and other non-governmental organizations devoted to increasing access to family planning services. He is a specialist on South and Southeast Asian population issues, where he lived and worked for nearly 20 years. He has also worked in Mexico, Eastern Europe, and Sub-Saharan Africa. Don has a Masters in Population Planning (Public Health) from the University of Michigan.

_________________________________________________________________________

Roy Beck’s ties to Tanton and Tanton-founded anti-immigration groups go back at least to 1991. Tanton hired Beck as a consultant “because of his unique background in environmental reporting, and his understanding of the immigration issue,” Tanton wrote in a 1997 memo. At least through the summer 2000 issue, Beck served as editor of John Tanton’s The Social Contract. (SOURCE: http://www.newcomm.org/pdf/CNC-NUSA.pdf )

In 1985 – this Tanton letter makes it clear that Tanton wanted to couch his population control agenda under different terms such as the Center for Immigration Studies working together:
Tanton write, “After careful and prolonged study, the FAIR Board has concluded that a “Think Tank” on the scale of Worldwatch Institute is n eeded. For credibility. “This will need to be independent of FAIR, though the Center for Immigration , as we’re calling it as we’ re calling it , is starting off as a project of FAIR. A grant from the Wood Prince Foundation of Chicago under wrote our study. and provided for hiring an initial director, now accomplished.

John Tanton – Is Chairman of the US “Umbrella Foundation” – You will see that NUMBERS USA comes under that Umbrella: Here

In this 2001, John Tanton Letter, Tanton clearly shows how he and Roy Beck are connected-
Tanton writes, “Roy Beck and I think we have come up with an idea that can actually move the battle lines on the immigration question in our favor. While we are working on other ideas to move Democrats, this one involves using the recently released census data to show Republican members of Congress, the Administration, and the party’s leadership how
massive immigration imperils their political future. The goal is to change Republicans’ perception of immigration so that when they encounter the word “immigrant,” their reaction is “Democrat.” …Our plan is to hire a lobbyist who will carry the following message to Republicans on
Capitol Hill and to business leaders: Continued massive immigration will soon cost you political control of the White House and Congress.”

_________________________________________________________________________
Another organization investigating the racist connections of John Tanton and FAIR is: The Southern Poverty Law Center, who nail it when they write about John Tanton’s racism – but consistently refuse to mention the clear connections of John Tanton, Pioneer Fund, Numbers USA to Planned Parenthood. Why would this be? Because SPLA is well connected to the ACLU and the abortion lobby. So – you can see they also have an agenda which keeps them muzzled on showing the entire truth here – despite the fact that the documentary Maafa21 shows clearly that Planned Parenthood is promoting Black Genocide.

SPLC Writes, “FAIR, CIS and NumbersUSA are all part of a network of restrictionist organizations conceived and created by John Tanton, the “puppeteer” of the nativist movement and a man with deep racist roots. As the first article in this report shows, Tanton has for decades been at the heart of the white nationalist scene. He has met with leading white supremacists, promoted anti-Semitic ideas, and associated closely with the leaders of a eugenicist foundation once described by a leading newspaper as a “neo-Nazi organization.” He has made a series of racist statements about Latinos and worried that they were outbreeding whites. At one point, he wrote candidly that to maintain American culture, “a European-American majority” is required.
FAIR, which Tanton founded and where he remains on the board, has been listed as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Among the reasons are its acceptance of $1.2 million from the Pioneer Fund, a group founded to promote the genes of white colonials that funds studies of race, intelligence and genetics. FAIR has also hired as key officials men who also joined white supremacist groups. It has board members who regularly write for hate publications. It promotes racist conspiracy theories about Latinos. And it has produced television programming featuring white nationalists.”

The fact that Planned Parenthood founder, Margaret Sanger also met with White Nationalists like Stoddard and the KKK failed to make SPLC’s report.

_________________________________________________________________________
Roy Beck ( And John Tanton ) have both stated that they were frustrated that groups Like Planned Parenthood because they did not believe that Planned Parenthood went far enough. Tanton said this was the reason he started another pro-abortion pro-population control group: Zero Population Growth (ZPG). Hayes again states that, in 1969, Tanton started and chaired the population committee of his local Sierra Club chapter, and when Ehrlich and like-minded environmentalists founded the advocacy group Zero Population Growth (ZPG), he became one of its most active members, rising to its presidency in 1975. By then, the birthrate for Americans had declined below the replacement rate, but the American population was projected to keep growing. Tanton settled on the culprit: immigration.

Writing with Leon Kolankiewicz, in a piece entitled: The Environmental Movement’s Retreat from Advocating, Roy Beck Founder of Numbers USA writes:

Roy Beck
By the 1990s, for example, Planned Parenthood no longer played any role in advocating for U.S. population stabilization to protect the environment. Its focus had narrowed to making sure that women had full access to the whole range of options concerning fertility and births. That had always been a primary mission of Planned Parenthood, but one of the major purposes of empowering women had once been to reduce U.S. population growth.

And speaking of the pro-abortion group Zero Population Growth, founded in 1968 by Professor Paul Ehrlich, author of The Population Bomb, here is ZPG ( Zero Population Growth) Linking to Numbers USA :

Note: They also link to Alan Guttmacher, Teen Wire a Planned Parenthood Website, California’s for Population Stabilization (CAPS) another Planned Parenthood filled Immigration Org, and the United Nation;s Population Fund

From Numbers USA:
Third World Growth — California Style
Fast Facts on U.S./CA Population
Almost 60% of all pregnancies in the US are unintended. Better access to family planning, including contraception, is necessary so that women can choose the size of their families and delay pregnancy.
The teen pregnancy rate in the U.S. is twice that of any other industrialized nation and most of these are unintended. 85% of health insurance plans cover abortions and sterilizations, but only 15% of these cover all 5 FDA-approved reversible methods of contraception. The cost of providing coverage for contraceptive drugs is $1.25 per month per employee, although the out-of-pocket expense to an uncovered employee is $25- $50 a month.
92% of California’s population growth during the past decade was due to mass immigration (immigrants plus births to immigrants here). This state receives 40% of all immigrants to the U.S.
The U.S. now accepts over 1 million legal immigrants per year which is almost 5 times its traditional level. Illegal immigration is soaring to almost 800,000 per year.
In just fifty years the U.S. population will be almost a half billion (almost double) with 90 percent due to mass immigration since 1970.

NumbersUSA attacks Senator Cornyn!

According to Texas GOP Vote:
It doesn’t take much for anti-immigration group NumbersUSA to get their knickers in a twist. When they got word that Texas Senator John Cornyn (who has a lifetime American Conservative Union rating of 92.00) was attending Thursday’s White House meeting on immigration reform, Roy Beck with Numbers USA fired off an angry blast email calling on recipients to jam the Senator’s office phone lines….
Check out Roy Beck’s famed “gumball” presentation! In it he also makes it clear that he is OK with U.S. support for “family planning” (i.e., abortion) to reduce population growth in third world countries. I am sure Planned Parenthood agrees. It is a real shame that the views pushed by Beck and his group have been accepted by so many in the GOP. Are his principles really consistent with conservative Texas GOP principles?
Beck’s email also warns Cornyn against committing “political suicide.” Folks, take a look at this report and tell me who is committing political suicide. 2008 provided a great test case for the “enforcement only” proponents, here are some highlights:

Racism is an issue with these Immigration Organizations- and most of the ones I quoted are also connected to Planned Parenthood. Watch
Maafa21 Black Genocide in 21st Century America (Clip Below) to learn much more about Planned Parenthood’s connections to Eugenics and racism:

Another organization with leadership in Planned Parenthood is PFIR, Progressives for Immigration Reform. PFIR’s President and Chair, William N. Ryerson, is the Founder and President of Population Media Center. Before founding Population Media Center, he served as Director of the Population Institute’s Youth and Student Division, Development Director of Planned Parenthood Southeastern Pennsylvania, Associate Director of Planned Parenthood of Northern New England, and Executive Vice President of Population Communications International.

Ryerson also has connections to another anti-immigration organization called: Californians for Population Stabilization or (CAPS). In addition to his connections to Planned Parenthood, CAPS’ 2009 annual report mentions a Board Member, Executive-at-Large:

Henry Mayer,M.D. a was a practicing physician and Clinical Professor of Medicine at Stanford University’s Medical School. He also
served on the board of directors of San Mateo County Planned Parenthood
and produced the documentary film which focused on eugenic sterilization, called “Tomorrow’s Children.”

Planned Parenthood calls Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords a “close friend”

Posted in Abortion, Eugenics, FAIR, Harry Laughlin, Hate Crimes, Health Care, Immigration, Planned Parenthood, Richard Lamm, terrorism with tags , , , , , on January 10, 2011 by saynsumthn

In a statement released on their website: Planned Parenthood who was founded by a known racist Klan speaker ( Margaret Sanger) called Rep. Gifford a “close friend”.

Read Statement: Planned Parenthood Statement on Shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords

Statement from Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, and Bryan Howard, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood Arizona, on the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords:
“The thoughts, wishes, and prayers of the entire Planned Parenthood family are with Rep. Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona and all of the victims of the tragic shooting incident in Tucson, Arizona today. Congresswoman Giffords is an invaluable and indefatigable advocate and public servant whom we respect for her courageous leadership on behalf of the people of Arizona and women everywhere. She is a fearless champion of health care for all Americans, and she played a vital role in the passage of the most important health care legislation in our nation’s history. She is a close friend of Planned Parenthood, and our staff and supporters in Arizona and across the country fervently hope for her recovery. We mourn all who were killed in this tragedy, and we will keep their families in our thoughts and prayers.”

Planned Parenthood points to Giffords support of Health Care which they know would fund the group to increase their already million dollar-per-day payout from taxpayers. But, what is NOT stated here is the close ties Planned Parenthood past and present employees also has with the anti-immigration movement. Another reason Planned Parenthood may have considered the Congresswoman a “close friend”

Giffords represents a district in southern Arizona that borders Mexico, so immigration has been her main focus in Congress.

The Democrat approached the immigration debate in a nuanced fashion, mixing requests for more Border Patrol agents with calls to increase the number of work visas granted to foreigners.

She has said repeatedly that federal assistance was desperately needed to secure the border and protect residents there.

“(Arizona is) directly paying the price for the burden of all the drug smuggling and human smuggling and immigration,” she said last year. “I understand the anger that Arizonans have about illegal immigration. They’re angry and I’m angry.”

During her four years in Congress, she worked to pass legislation that created special penalties for people who use tunnels to traffic goods and people under the border, and won a difficult fight to retain $420 million to reimburse local law enforcement agencies for detaining illegal immigrants.

Last year, her constant calls for more security helped prompt President Obama to send 1,200 National Guard troops to the Southwest border and dedicate about $600 million to add Border Patrol agents and new monitoring technologies.

Even so, Giffords opposed the state law passed last year that would have required all the state’s law enforcement officers to check the immigration status of anybody they stopped, detained or arrested if a “reasonable suspicion” existed that the person was in the country illegally.

Here is a letter Rep. Giffords penned in 2009 on behalf of Planned Parenthood:

Don’t short-change women’s health care (Rep. Gabrielle Giffords)
By Ariz. Dem. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords – 07/24/09

An amendment was offered this week to restrict vital funding that provides preventive and primary health care to millions of women from being made available to one of our country’s most essential community providers – Planned Parenthood.

For over 90 years, Planned Parenthood has been a trusted preventive health care provider to over three million women, men, and teens a year. To deny funding to Planned Parenthood is, quite simply, to deny essential life saving health care for millions of Americans who have nowhere else to turn.

In my home state of Arizona, more than 57,000 women receive health care through the Title X family planning programs – this is the funding that would be cut off by proposed amendment. Planned Parenthood health centers across the state serve over half of these women with Title X funding – more than any other women’s health care provider in the state.

Beyond Arizona, Planned Parenthood has more than 850 health centers in 49 states. Last year alone they provided birth control to 2.3 million people, breast exams to 850,000 women and more than one million cervical cancer screenings. More than 90 percent of the care they provide is preventive. One out of every three women, 1.7 million, who receives Title X family planning health care does so at a Planned Parenthood health center and could potentially lose access to their trusted provider if this amendment is adopted.

In the current economic crisis, more women are turning to women’s health centers for basic health care. Women of childbearing age spend 68 percent more in out-of-pocket health care costs than men, in part because of reproductive health-related needs. The number of women in need of publicly funded family planning services (currently 17.5 million) increased by more than one million between 2000 and 2006.

Today, more than six in 10 patients who receive care at a women’s health center like Planned Parenthood consider it their primary source of health care. One in four women who receives contraceptive care does so at a women’s health center. One in six women who obtains a Pap test or a pelvic exam does so at a women’s health center, as do one-third of women who receive counseling, testing, or treatment for sexually transmitted infections, including HIV. This basic health care is essential to give women the tools they need to protect and support their families.

For many women, and especially those in rural areas and underserved communities, Planned Parenthood is their only source of health care. Title X funding helps ensure these women have access to the high-quality, affordable and life-saving care they need through a trusted provider.
