The media seems to always equate abortion with “women’s rights” — but many people may be unaware that legalizing abortion in America was actually an idea originally pushed by pro-abortion men, many of whom were concerned about the growth of certain people groups. But beyond this, predatory men have benefited significantly from legalized abortion, which has removed male responsibility from unplanned pregnancy situations, and which is used to cover up sexual abuse. And male abortionists continue to be protected by the abortion industry even when they rapeinjure or kill female patients.

Below are eight things everyone should know about the large role certain men played in liberalizing abortion laws in the U.S.:

1. Pro-eugenics men were the primary people discouraging reproduction among “undesirable” groups

2. A pro-population control man led the push for abortion at Planned Parenthood

3. A misogynistic man influenced the sexual revolution, which primarily benefited predatory males 

  • The sexual revolution of the 1960s pushed by Cosmopolitan Magazine (under direction of Helen Gurley Brown) was inspired by Hugh Hefner, creator of Playboy.
  • Hefner told Hollywood Reporter that Brown approached him for job before joining Cosmo: “She wanted to do a female version of Playboy.
  • The theme of free sex without consequences and no kids, with abortion as a safety net, benefited men.

4. Two pro-abortion men hijacked the 1960’s “women’s movement” to legalize abortion

Larry Lader and Bernard Nathanson

  • Most outspoken abortion enthusiasts in the 1960s were men, like Larry Lader and Bernard Nathanson.
  • Betty Friedan, author of “The Feminine Mystique,” dubbed “mother of the women’s movement,” called Lader “the father of the abortion rights movement.”
  • Friedan founded the National Organization for Women (NOW) in 1966 and in 1967, Lader and Nathanson convinced her to add abortion to NOW’s plank, causing a loss in female NOW membership.
  • Lader admitted in his book that “Abortion never became a feminist plank in the United States among the suffragettes or depression radicals. It was ignored, even boycotted by Planned Parenthood women in those days.”
  • 1969: NARAL was established by Lader, Nathanson, and Friedan, who admitted few women attended. (Nathanson later renounced his pro-abortion stance and worked to expose the lies they told.)
  • 1989: Friedan acknowledged it was certain men who pushed to legalize abortion: “I remember that there were some men… that had been trying to reform these criminal abortion laws. And they got a sense somehow that the women’s movement might make everything different…. They kept nagging at me… to try and do something…. ‘We need some organization to take up… abortion rights.’”

5. Pro-eugenics men founded the Guttmacher Institute, Planned Parenthood’s former research arm 

  • Alan Guttmacher, former Planned Parenthood president and Eugenics Society VP, founded the Center for Family Planning Program Development in 1968, which became the Guttmacher Institute, a “special affiliate” of Planned Parenthood.
  • In 1969, Guttmacher acknowledged funding came from “Kellogg, Rockefeller, and Ford Foundations.”

6. Men in favor of population control pushed for taxpayer-funded “family planning,” which aids America’s largest abortion business

  • The Title X federal family planning program allocates tens of millions of tax dollars to Planned Parenthood.
  • 1965: President Lyndon Johnson (LBJ) supported taxpayer funded “family planning” and was awarded Planned Parenthood’s Margaret Sanger Award the following year.
  • 1966: Alan Guttmacher proposed a blueprint to force taxpayers to fund birth control for poor.
  • 1968: George N. Lindsay, chairman of Planned Parenthood-World Population, urged President Richard Nixon to federally fund poor people’s “family planning.”
  • 1969: Nixon spoke in favor of “family planning” and the same year, the Senate approved tax funding for it, with the help of Democrat Senator Joseph D. Tydings, a Planned Parenthood supporter granted PPFA’s Margaret Sanger award.

  • 1970: The U.S. House of Representatives authorized federal dollars to pay for family planning services.
  • The chief co-sponsor of the Title X statute was Rep. George H.W. Bush, who later became president. Bush was recruited because his grandfather, Prescott Bush, once sat on a Planned Parenthood board.
  • 1972: Nixon recommended Congress create the Commission on Population Growth and the American Future to study abortion. It was chaired by John D. Rockefeller III, a longtime advocate of population control. The Executive Director was Charles Westoff, a member of the American Eugenics Society and Planned Parenthood’s National Advisory Council.

7. An all-male Supreme Court legalized abortion

  • 1973: U.S. Supreme Court justices, all men, ruled 7 to 2 to vote in the Roe v. Wade case in favor of legalizing abortion on demand.

8. Men pushing eugenics and population control brought the abortion pill to the U.S.

  • The Population Council, founded in 1952 by John D. Rockefeller III, was led by men concerned about population issues and is credited with bringing abortion pill RU-486 to the U.S.
  • Population Council leaders were connected to the eugenics movement (read more here).

  • 1994: President Bill Clinton’s administration encouraged French pharmaceutical manufacturer Roussel-Uclaf to assign US rights of marketing and distribution of RU-486 to the Population Council.
  • Right to distribute handed over to Danco Laboratories, a sub-licensee of the Population Council.
  • 2000: Larry Lader bragged in a press conference he “plotted” to break the law and smuggle the pills into the U.S.

NARAL holds Men for Choice event to push abortion rights

Posted in Bro-Choice, Ginsburg, Men For Choice, NARAL with tags , , , , , , , , , , on February 25, 2015 by saynsumthn

Nothing seems more unusual for so-called “women’s rights” than a bunch of Brochoice men getting together to promote abortion all while using the name of a radical FEMALE advocate of population control!

In promoting the event the Massachusetts abortion lobby group incorrectly titled it the Ruth Bader GINsberg which, if spelled correctly would be Ginsburg – but- you can’t expect abortion advocates to get their facts straight- right?

Maybe they got the spelling off this old tweet their national office sent out in 2014:

NARAL Ginsberg Tweet

Hey- I completely understand how one could make a mistake in spelling- I do it all the time- but- Ginsburg is the abortion lobby darling- I mean- how could they mess that up?

Oh…look – someone must have caught their mistake – NARAL corrected the spelling:

But not before tweeting it here here here here here and on Facebook here among other times.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is an advocate of population control otherwise known as eugenics:

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg once said , “I had thought that at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of.”

Recently the good Justice expounded on which populations we don’t want too many of – the poor !

Ruth Ginsburg and Bloomberg 2015 abortion

In an interview with Bloomberg’s Greg Stohr and Matthew Winkler, the radically pro-abortion Justice says that restricting abortion targets the poor – uh – the exact same people she once said abortion was created for.

Is that not ironic?

Ginsburg was asked if American women should be concerned about all the abortion restrictions across the county.

Ginsburg replied, “Women should be concerned because abortion restrictions in practical effect target poor women and poor women only.”

But…I digress…Back to NARAL’s Men for Choice celebration:

NARAL’s Men for Choice event looked pretty boring based on their tweets:

However, this tweet of an old man sitting on the floor with a little child to advocate abortion was pretty disturbing and read, “Spotted at #MenForChoice 2015: multiple generations of activists. The future of #ReproRights is looking bright.”

Men for Choice NARAL Future generations

Well…I doubt that. If the future of abortion rights is to beg support from men – I would say it is in deep trouble!

NARAL will also be honoring Mac D’Alessandro for his work on pro-choice campaigns in Massachusetts.

National Men For Choice events have also taken place under NARAL’s marketing with notable male guests such as Hunter Biden, son of Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., Nathan Daschle, son of former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle, D-S.D., Joe Lockhart, former press secretary to President Bill Clinton, Bill Burton, former campaign press secretary for President Barack Obama, Brian Wolff, former executive director of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, and former Rep. Tom Perriello, D-Va.

Although men have always benefited from abortion, I see nothing “astounding” or “great” about celebrating the killing of little babies in the womb. Apparently NARAL’s Men for Choice do!

NARAL’s prez spoke of “values” and “human rights” to ThinkProgress about the Men For Choice campaign- while they promote the wholesale slaughter of unborn babies with abortion and fail to speak up when abortion docs slap or kill their patients.

ilyse-hogue-200px “Reproductive freedom is a core value that we all share. The recent attacks on our freedoms affect women first and foremost, but are an affront to all people who hold human rights as a value. We want men on our team, not only at the elected level but at the grassroots level too. This is how we show solidarity and how we win.” ~ Ilyse Hogue, NARAL’s president.

TEXT:

The National Abortion Rights Action League is dragging out a campaign called Men for Choice as if this is some sort of revolutionary new concept. The reality is, and polls have consistently shown, that men have always been their strongest supporters. If fact, this is a reflection of why the early feminist leaders in this country were openly opposed to the legalization of abortion. They understood that legalized abortion has nothing to do with women’s equality. Women don’t need surgery to be equal to men. What abortion is, is a safety net for sexually predatory and sexually irresponsible males. It gives these guys a way to avoid any commitments to the women whose bodies they use or any responsibility for the children they father. Not only that, but the woman are the ones who take all the risks associated with the operation.

And not only did these early feminist leaders know this, men know it too. And men like those I just described, take advantage of it. That’s why, today, American society has devolved to the point where a male’s responsibility for an unplanned pregnancy he helped to create is often defined as a willingness to pay for half the abortion and provide transportation to the clinic.

Let’s also not forget what sometimes happens when a woman refuses to jump into this safety net. This Life Dynamics report documents about 100 cases in which women who refused their partners demands to have abortions, were then brutally murdered by those men. And our research made it crystal clear that the victims named here are just the tip of an enormous iceberg.

So if you are female, before you jump into bed with someone, it would be a good idea to find out his position on abortion. After all, you don’t want to be like the women listed here and find out the hard way that the kind of man who can be pro-choice about your baby could also be pro-choice about you.

The bottom line is, if you want to submit to an abortion, then the way the law is right now you can do so. But don’t be so blind, or so pathetically naïve, that you think abortions are done for the benefit of women. After all, if the people promoting this “Men for Choice” campaign can figure out whose bread is being buttered, so can you.
