Do Planned Parenthood slogans disguise real eugenics mission?

Posted in Planned Parenthood Slogan with tags , , , on October 29, 2016 by saynsumthn

Planned Parenthood’s cleverly crafted slogans may be disguising their real mission of eugenics. From its inception in 1916, Planned Parenthood has been an organization full of deception which misleads the public with snappy sounding taglines that make their them appear as if they are for “health” and families. We have assembled a few examples for your review below.

This vintage 1972 poster from Planned Parenthood reads, “We think children are priceless too.” This was published one year before the infamous Roe v. Wade abortion decision, but make no mistake, Planned Parenthood fully supported abortion, providing them in New York and openly pushing for it’s legalization nationally. The ad is very misleading attempting to convince it’s audience that Planned Parenthood actually believes children that they openly abort in the womb are “priceless.” Then comes the rub, as the ad goes on to state, “But if a child happens to be unplanned, it could mean financial pressures. You see a child is not just and extra mouth to feed. Its a whole other life to be provided for.”

The very name Planned Parenthood is deceptive. It was created to sound appealing on the outside until you dig deep to discover that they were founded in eugenics. Even their motto of “every child a wanted child” is misleading and very possibly originated in eugenics as well.

A little known fact is that the origin of Planned Parenthood’s oft repeated “Every child a wanted child” slogan may have come from Fredrick Henry Osborn. Osborn was a founding member of the American Eugenics Society(AES) and President of the organization in 1946. He also helped start the Population Council as well as the Pioneer Fund, all known for their population control agenda.

Osborn signed Margaret Sanger’s “Citizens Committee for Planned Parenthood” published in her review in April of 1938.

After World War 11, many eugenics leaders were concerned that the Nazi Holocaust (inspired partly by the American Eugenics Movement) had negatively affected the public’s perception of eugenics. This led to the AES changing the name of their publication from Study of Social Biology and the American Eugenics Society to The Society for Biodemography and Social Biology. At the time of this change, Osborn correctly pointed out how abortion ( with the same agenda) had replaced the term “eugenics” writing:

“The name was changed because it became evident that changes of a eugenic nature would be made for reasons other than eugenics, and that tying a eugenic label on them would more often hinder than help their adoption. Birth control and abortion are turning out to be great eugenic advances of our time.”

Osborn’s mission was to reinvent eugenics and make the concept more acceptable, something he believed his predecessors had not accomplished. According to author Edwin Black in his book on eugenics entitled, War Against the Weak:

“Osborn and his colleagues were searching for a new socially palatable definition of eugenics that would promote the same ideals under a new mantle. One Osborn cohort, Frank Lorimer, wrote Osborn, “Personally, I would redefine ‘eugenics’ to include concern with all condition affecting the life prospects of new human beings at birth.” He added the caveat, “This is a metter of strategy rather than ideology.”

Author Rebecca Messall, adds some additional insight into Osborn’s views. Writing in, The Long Road of Eugenics: From Rockefeller to Roe v. Wade, Messall states:

In 1940, Osborn received a public-relations boost from Time magazine, in an article titled “Eugenics for Democracy.” The article described him as being “among the leaders of the new, environmental eugenics.” In the article, Osborn articulated the meaning of this new eugenics: “An environment equalized at a higher level would show up a superior heredity in great numbers of persons now at a low level of development.” He believed doctors should involuntarily sterilize the feeble-minded, but said a “sound population policy stresses ‘freedom of parenthood’—freedom not to have children unless they are wanted.

Today, Osborn’s idea of “freedom of parenthood” or more commonly used concept that children are to be “wanted” have adorned Planned Parenthood’s website and advertisements for years. In essence, the new “eugenics” slogan now reads, “Every Child to be a Wanted Child.”

Today, Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest provider of abortion admittedly performing well over 300,000 abortions annually while taking in a half billion in dollars of revenue from the tax payer each year. Since his tenure in office, Obama has increased those dollars by 35%. Now, Hillary and Obama are vowing to force the tax payer to fund abortion by calling for the repeal of the Hyde Amendment.

Whether Planned Parenthood’s often repeated slogan originated from a former president of the eugenics movement or not, it is a misnomer to claim that a child has a “right” to be “wanted” but not a “right” to be born. The organization which is now abortion-focused is celebrating (imagine celebrating death?) it’s 100th year. But, Planned Parenthood remains tied to the vision of their founder, a staunch eugenics promoter, Margaret Sanger who admittedly gave speeches to the racist Klu Klux Klan. Despite this fact, Planned Parenthood praises her, writing this on a page regarding the organization’s history:

“Today we celebrate her [ Margaret Sanger] accomplishments, her pioneering work and her ideas. Margaret Sanger’s vision has inspired the availability of reproductive health care for women…across the nation.”

And this one:

“Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, is one of the movement’s great heroes. Sanger’s early efforts remain the hallmark of Planned Parenthood’s mission…”

While Planned Parenthood attempt to disassociate themselves from their eugenics beginnings, the truth is that the agenda has merely morphed under a new name, abortion. Given this, perhaps Osborn’s statement that “Birth control and abortion are turning out to be great eugenic advances of our time” has come true.

The origin of Planned Parenthood’s oft repeated slogan “Every child a wanted child” may have come from the eugenics movement, specifically Fredrick Henry Osborn.

According to Evolution in the News, Osborn, a founding member of the American Eugenics Society, restructured the eugenics movement in the 1950s and 1960s, covering up its totalitarian roots and marketing it as “voluntary unconscious selection,” a corrective to natural selection impaired by human domestication (i.e. civilization).

Osborn’s suggested motto for the New Eugenics was “Every Child a Wanted Child“, which now adorns Planned Parenthood’s website and is available on buttons from pro-abortion organizations.

Saynsumthn Blog wanted to confirm that eugenicist Osborn coined the term, so I contacted the American Philosophical Society which houses records from the eugenics society.

Here is their reply, ” Osborn’s slogan apparently is used in Planned Parenthood, and papers are in Princeton. According to the APS Librarians, We do have a collection of Osborn’s papers at the APS as well and the records of the AES. It’s possible that there is documentation in one of the collections. It’s the kind of question that is likely difficult to determine, unless Osborn published something specifically about it. It does sound like Osborn, the respectable face of eugenics in the post WWII era.

It is no wonder that Osborn also said that, “Birth Control and abortion are turning out to be the great eugenic advances of our time.”

Letter sent to pro-life group from pro-choice person reveals eugenics is alive and well in America

Posted in Planned Parenthood Slogan, Pro-choice Spin, Saves Taxpayers with tags , , , , , , , on September 2, 2014 by saynsumthn

In September, pro-lifers in Texas received a very disturbing letter promoting pure unadulterated eugenics.

According to Jim Graham Executive Director of Texas Right to Life, when Texas Right to Life participated in a pro-Life townhall in Beaumont, Texas, voters went to their cars to go home and found the disturbing message on their vehicles.

The letter said that they needed to “wake up” because unwanted babies “cost us billions of dollars every year!”

The letter begins with the all to well-known Planned Parenthood (paraphrased) slogan, it reads, “Babies deserve to be wanted and loved.” It implies that an unwanted child is automatically going to become a criminal. What nonsense.

What most people and the writer of this letter may no know is that the the origin of Planned Parenthood’s oft repeated slogan “Every child a wanted child” may have come from the eugenics movement, specifically Fredrick Henry Osborn.

More here.

The letter which members of Texas Right To Life received also complains that if we allow children to be born rather than murdered in the womb, it will cost “billions of dollars every year,” in tax money.

Even if you buy into a eugenics/ abortion philosophy there is no proof that killing little babies saves the taxpayer money, as I break down here.

The letter is a sad commentary that eugenics is alive and well in America and it is even more proof that it’s roots must be completely pulled out and shown for the lie it is.
