The “father of the abortion movement,” Larry Lader, was heavily influenced by Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, about whom he wrote a biography. Planned Parenthood was also steeped in eugenics from its beginning, and boasted a list of eugenics proponents as its board members. Although the two shared a eugenics ideology, Lader would eventually part ways with Sanger over abortion. But it was perhaps Sanger’s warped eugenic ideology that motivated Lader to manipulate the 1960s women’s movement to push for abortion legalization.

 

Lader wasn’t interested in equal rights… just ‘abortion rights’

“Larry never seemed to be interested in the rest of the women’s movement, the equal rights amendment, child care and so forth,” Sey Chassler, a consulting editor at Parade magazine, recalled to the LA Times in 1995. But on abortion, “he is absolutely single-minded. He just keeps going forward on it.”

In 1966, Lader authored the book “Abortion” on the heels of the Supreme Court’s 1965 decision in Griswold vs. Connecticut, granting a so-called right to privacy. “If I had written it five years earlier, it would have sunk like a stone,” he admitted.

Lader stressed in the book, “We will only defeat ourselves by producing an endless cycle of unwanted children. Those born in slums, for example, denied even the smallest share of education and economic opportunity, have little chance of realizing their full potential as citizens.” He goes on to quote Garrett Hardin, a leading eugenic ecologist, whose views influenced debates on abortion, immigration, foreign aid, overpopulation, and other provocative issues.

Hardin, a member of the American Eugenics Society, who was given Planned Parenthood’s highest national award in 1980, once called it insanity to rely on voluntarism to control population. He advocated coercive birth control, stating that citizens should be willing to give up their right to breed for the betterment of society.

“When unwanted children become parents,” Lader quotes Hardin in “Abortion,” “they are more likely than others to be poor parents themselves and breed another generation of unwanted children. This is a vicious cycle if there ever was one. It is ruinous to the social system.”

“Above all, society must grasp the grim relationship between unwanted children and the violent rebellion of minority groups,” Lader went on to state, then using Planned Parenthood’s iconic slogan, “every child a wanted child,” coined by eugenicist Frederick Henry Osborn, a founding member and president of the American Eugenics Society (AES) who also signed Sanger’s “Citizens Committee for Planned Parenthood,” published in her review in April 1938.

“As long as a reasonable chance of contraceptive failure persists, however, abortion must be included as part of birth control to insure every child’s becoming a wanted child,” Lader wrote. He then turned from a eugenics emphasis to couching abortion as liberating for women, calling it, “the final freedom,” and quoting Sanger as saying, “No woman can call herself free until she can choose consciously whether she will or will not be a mother.”

“The complete legalization of abortion is the one just and inevitable answer to the quest for feminine freedom,” Lader stated. “All other solutions are compromises.”

Lader sought “a complete restructuring of sexual morality”

Lader saw abortion as liberating for women, sexually. But in reality, abortion was a man’s dream and the last barrier keeping him from free sex without consequences… and has shifted the responsibility of pregnancy to the woman alone.

“The rapid advance of legalized abortion in turn gave the feminist movement an explosive boost,” Lader wrote in “Abortion II,” adding, “Abortion provided the prime weapon against sexism and the ‘biological imperative’ – the prison of unwanted childbearing that had chained most women to the role of housekeepers, nurses, and cooks under male dominance. Once sex had been detached from pregnancy, Women’s Liberation could construct its own ethics on the ash-heap of puritan morality.”

Lader then suggested that the “feminist revolt” was the “rebirth of sex… an explosion of sexuality” while also pointing out that a recent study had shown that “nearly half of all unmarried women have had sexual intercourse by the age of nineteen.” Of course, Lader also observed from that Commission on Population Growth study that, “more Blacks than Whites had intercourse in each age group.”

Lader described the feminist demands as “a complete restructuring of sexual morality,” claiming that the “most radical feminist wants an even more sweeping revolt – the end of the nuclear family itself.” He claimed the feminist had replaced the security of a “husband’s salary” for the “biological security of abortion.”

‘Father of abortion rights’ called self a ‘disciple’ of Planned Parenthood founder and eugenicist Margaret Sanger

Planned Parenthood founder

Larry Lader, rightly dubbed the “father of the abortion rights movement,” influenced the women’s movement of the 1960s to push abortion. Lader was a writer by trade and became the biographer for Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, even referring to himself as her “disciple.” The two eventually parted ways over abortion. Watch to learn more:

In his biography, Lader said Sanger’s obsession with eugenics (an ideology the two shared) originated with her introduction to Henry Havelock Ellis in 1914, a psychologist and author of several books on sex, with whom Sanger was rumored to have had an affair. At the time Lader’s biography was published, it received some favorable reviews with Sanger herself arranging book signings. It was also reportedly distributed through Planned Parenthood offices.

But, in co-authoring his second book on Sanger, Lader can be credited for remaking her from a eugenic fanatic into, as Planned Parenthood describes her, a heroine. Thanks to Lader, Sanger “the eugenicist” became known instead as Sanger “the birth control pioneer.”

Lader’s books barely mention the word eugenics and certainly fail to connect the evil philosophy to Sanger. But the Planned Parenthood founder admitted to meeting with members of the Ku Klux Klan, openly advocated eugenics, and supported the use of sterilization to rid the planet of the “unfit.”

Forced sterilization as a permanent solution was, in Sanger’s mind, a preferred solution to procreation of the so-called “unfit” over abortion.

In his push for legalizing the abortion pill RU486, Lader recounted that Sanger had “skimpy” knowledge about abortion and claimed the topic caused a split between the two. “Ironically, I would eventually split with Margaret over abortion – only in a theoretical sense since, by 1963, she was too ill to carry on our old discussions,” Lader wrote in “Abortion II.”

“Margaret had always opposed abortion…. Naturally, she was right in the context of her time,” he continued.

According to the LA Times, Lader had observed Sanger’s strong opposition to abortion, “seeing the horrors of the women on the Lower East Side, with $5 in their hands, submitting themselves to butchers.” To Sanger, “birth control was a solution to abortion,” Lader realized.

Lader’s abortion activism birthed with Sanger 

Nonetheless, Lader’s time with the Planned Parenthood founder seems to have been the catalyst for Lader’s own abortion obsession. “I hesitated to deal with the subject after writing my biography of Margaret Sanger,” Lader wrote in “Abortion II.” “In 1955, I evaded it again…. By 1962, I made the first step, soliciting dozens of editors to write a magazine article on abortion, but being rejected by all. A year later, still concerned that I could be damaged as a writer by this connection, I started work on a book that was published under the blunt title, ‘Abortion,’ in early 1966.”

On April 14, 1966, during a discussion about abortion recorded by WNYC in New York, Lader was asked about his feelings on abortion. He said:

I did a biography of Margaret Sanger of the birth control movement ten or twelve years ago and from that point on I’ve been extremely interested in anything that denies to women — and to men also, but basically to women — what I consider their basic right to decide whether they should or should not become a mother.

I think this is summed up very well by a great phrase of Margaret Sanger’s which she stated, ‘No woman can call herself free who does not own and control her own body. No woman can call herself free until she can choose consciously whether she will or will not be a mother.’

Margaret Sanger quote

And then I add in my book, I state my own statement, the laws that force a woman to bear a child against her will are the sickly heritage of a feminine degradation and male supremacy. In brief, I believe that the right of a woman to bear or not to bear a child is one of the basic human rights and that this cannot be taken away from her….

Lader reiterated the Planned Parenthood founder’s influence in his book, “RU486.” He wrote (emphasis added), “My first book on Margaret Sanger indicated I had a feminist bent. Three crowded years of talking and working with Sanger had completely convinced me that a woman’s freedom in education, jobs, marriage, her whole life, could only be achieved when she gained control of her childbearing. I came gradually to understand that birth control required abortion as a backup measure when contraception failed or wasn’t used at all.”

Prior to the Roe decision, Lader took part in an illegal underground abortion referral service called the “Clergyman’s Consultation Service on Abortion,” founded by the Reverend Howard Moody. Lader made more than 2,000 referrals for women seeking illegal abortions while participating in this “service.”

Then, in 1967, Lader, along with former abortionist Bernard Nathanson (who later became pro-life) hijacked Betty Friedan’s 1960’s women’s movement and influenced the so-called feminist icon to add a pro-abortion plank to the National Organization for Women (NOW), which she founded. Soon after, in 1969, Lader helped Nathanson to found NARAL, originally called the National Association for the Repeal of Abortion Laws, and remained active until 1976, when Lader left NARAL for reasons “no one chooses to discuss,” as the LA Times noted.

NARAL leader used her abortion as birth control

Posted in NARAL with tags , , , , , , on February 5, 2016 by saynsumthn

The president of NARAL pro-choice America has admitted that she used abortion as birth control. In a video she published online, IIlyse Hogue admits that she had an abortion due to a contraception failure.

Hogue NARAL abortion birth control

She begins by stating:

    “I’m Iilyse Hogue, I’m the president of NARAL pro-choice America which I might not be if I hadn’t had access to a legal abortion twenty years ago when I got pregnant due to a contraception failure.”

Let’s just pause here and dissect what she just said. The feminist president of an abortion group implied that pregnancy alone can keep a woman from success. She also clearly and unashamedly stated that using abortion simply because your contraception failed is not only acceptable but is preferable. Listen to what she says next:

    “I always say my abortion story is boring. I got pregnant, I wasn’t ready to be a parent, I wasn’t with the person I wanted to be with for the rest of my life, we weren’t financially secure, we both had dreams that we wanted to go on and achieve.”

That reads like a totally self absorbed person.

And, the abortion rights leader’s selfishness is reiterated by what she says next:

    “I think about my abortion, but I certainly don’t regret it. It allowed me to go on and do work that I think was incredibly impact full…If we can’t decide that we’re not ready to be parents than everything else we aspire to fades from view.”

Wow!

Such drama.

Is Hogue that weak of a woman that one baby would have sunk her entire future?

Apparently not, considering the NARAL leader just had a twins and- surprise – she is still the head of NARAL. Hogue made the announcement on her Facebook page last June:

    “June 17th, my husband and I were thrilled to meet our new daughter and son when they came into the world at 11:29 and 11:34 am respectively. We’re still getting used to being new parents with all of the flood of emotions–overwhelming joy and confusion and awe.”

Ilyse Iilyse Hogue John Neffinger

Hogue is married to John Neffinger who, according to his LinkedIn page, runs the Franklin Forum PAC, which does communications consulting with progressive candidates for public office. He also works with an affiliated non-profit called the Franklin Forum, which works with non-profit advocacy organizations on their communications . He also founded KNP Communications. He has authored a book called ‘Compelling People: The Hidden Qualities That Make Us Influential‘ which contains information about women can project strength without looking like a “b” as he details in a video here.

After the birth of her twins, radically pro-abortion 2016 presidential Democrat candidate, Hillary Clinton sent the NARAL abortion leader this letter of congratulations. Hogue us a huge supporter of Hillary.

Hillary Sends NARAL Leader a letter of congrats

In her video, Hogue makes the false claim that where abortion access goes down the numbers of injuries and deaths from abortion go up. Except, the hypocritical statement has no proof and it contradicts the facts that women have been injured and killed for the past 43 years with not even a whisper of concern from NARAL or any other abortion rights organization.

The fact is that despite the claim that women needed abortion for medical reasons or for rape, Hogue follows in lock step alongside other abortion rights leaders like Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards who openly admit their abortions were simply for reasons of convenience alone.

What Hogue and NARAL don’t seem to grasp is that their the targeting of a weaker individual – a woman’s own child – diminishes women as a whole. Pro-life feminist Erika Bachiochi said it best in an op-ed she penned for CNN:

    “When we belittle the developing child in the womb, a scientific reality that most pro-choice advocates have come to admit, we belittle and distort that child’s mother. We make her out to be one with property rights over her developing unborn child (much as husbands once had property rights over their wives).

    “We give her the inhumane (but for 42 years, constitutionally protected) right to decide the fate of another human being, of a vulnerable child — her child — to whom she properly owes an affirmative duty of care. We do all this rather than offering her the myriad familial and social supports she needs, whatever her situation, and cherishing her role in the miracle of human life.”

The sign of a strong woman is not in how quickly she will sacrifice her own flesh and blood for personal ambition, but in how she maintains her dignity and that of her child while working through a challenging situation to find real solutions. Many women in much more difficult circumstances than Hogue’s have chosen a better way: instead of viewing their own offspring as expendable “mistakes,” they have faced their challenges while embracing and protecting life.

Pro-abortion blogger survey reveals “How Pro-Choice Are You?” SICK !

Posted in Abortion, Abortionist, pro-choice, Pro-Life with tags , , , , , , on March 3, 2010 by saynsumthn

I came across the “Angry Feminist Blog” and discovered that there is a pro-abortion survey being sent around the internet. The questions and answers of this blogger are below and ARE NOT MY OPINION – Rather they will enlighten you as to how those who work in the abortion industry and those who claim the “pro-choice” label think. I am especially shocked at how they separate the question of 5 or 10 multiple abortions from “using abortion as birth control”

The “Survey” originated at a blog called: Abortioneers and is allegedly written by someone who works in the abortion industry

On the question of Gender Election Abortions, a commenter to the Blog wrote this:

These are great questions. I admit to feeling a little uneasy with some of them (especially gender-selection) and I would like to share the only thing that has worked for me in confronting things like this.

Using Gender Selection as en example:

1) Acknowledge that this action is taken by a person who is fully capable.
2)Trust that person.

So I acknowledge that women who abort in order to select a gender are fully capable, intelligent human beings. I trust them to make the decisions in their lives.

Does that mean that I no longer consider gender selection (given that it is almost always aimed at producing males over females) misogynist? Do I now think that everything to do with gender selection is peachy-keen? No! I simply acknowledge the other person’s right and ability to make decisions for her life.

Why is that so hard for people to do?

Why can’t an anti say: I acknowledge the ability of women to knowingly choose the course of their own reproductive health and trust them to do so.

Pro-choice Survey via the Abortioneers

BELOW IS THE SURVEY AND THE ANSWERS GIVEN BY BLOGGER: angryfeministdoc

Do you Agree or Disagree with the following statements:

1. Every woman has the right to choose to terminate a pregnancy regardless of when during the pregnancy. Yes.

2. Abortion should be allowed even beyond 24 weeks of pregnancy. Yes. There is no “even”.

3. Parental consent should be required for any teen under the age of 18 requesting an abortion. Nonsense.

4. Women who have more than 5 abortions are irresponsible. No, but it may be wise as a health care provider to discuss contraception, relationships, and/or self-esteem with these women.

5. Women who have more than 10 abortions are irresponsible. Ditto.

6. Women should not use abortion as a form of birth control. Agree, in the sense that there are less invasive forms of birth control. But disagree, in the sense that “I don’t want to be pregnant” is a perfectly fine reason to terminate a pregnancy.

7. I think reproductive health advocacy organizations should promote the use of emergency contraception in order to decrease the number of abortions in the US each year. First part yes, second part…eeerm. I am always leery any time we talk about “reducing the number of abortions”, because the goal of reducing abortion often rests on an “abortion is bad” foundation, and not “there may be less invasive options available (like EC) for women that would ideally be accessible first”.

8. I feel uncomfortable if a woman has an abortion because of the gender of the pregnancy. On a personal level, yeah, because generally the undesirable sex of the fetus is “female”. But if the female fetus is inside someone else’s uterus, then it’s none of my business. And there are far better ways to empower women and girls than forcing them to birth more of them.

9. Male partners should have the right to be a part of the decision to terminate a pregnancy. No. Sorry. Men have reproductive choice, too. Just because the window during which they are capable of exercising their reproductive choice is smaller doesn’t make life “unfair”.

10. I think a woman’s right to choose to have an abortion is an absolute and inalienable right no matter what. Though my mind automatically tried to analyze this statement to make it untrue, I agree.

Abortion addiction? Woman who aborted 4 children speaks about her regrets

Four abortions ..now I’ll never have children

By Angela Carless 18/02/2010

With the number of women having multiple abortions rising in Britain, Karen Collier explains why she’s had four – and her devastation at now being left childless.

Terminating a pregnancy, is a decision no woman wants to have to make. However valid her reason for choosing an abortion, it is always a traumatic and terrifying experience.
But Karen Collier, who has had four abortions in 14 years, says she has paid the ultimate price for ending her pregnancies as she now faces the prospect of being childless.

“I take responsibility for my actions, but I think I’ve been very unlucky. I would have loved to have been a mother,” she says.

Karen, 43, represents a growing trend for multiple abortions. Almost 210,000 women had abortions in England, Wales and Scotland in 2008 – the highest figure in Europe. Of these a third were repeat abortions, with rising numbers of women having three, four or more terminations. And last week new statistics showed the number of unplanned pregnancies in the over 40s is now the same as the under 16s.

Karen has been left with a terrible legacy from her choice. “I am not someone who has slept around,” she says. “In fact, I’ve only ever had a handful of serious relationships. All I’ve ever wanted is marriage and a family, so it’s not easy to admit I’ve had four abortions – and it’s a confession I’m sure will make many people angry.

“But none of my terminations was undertaken lightly, and I have paid the ultimate price.” …..

Experts have identified a worrying pattern of “abortion addiction” in some women. Author Irene Vilar, 40, caused outrage recently by publishing a book about how she had 15 abortions in 17 years.
