Today, Planned Parenthood’s president compared the celebration of birth control to Thanksgiving.

In a tweet she posted for National Thank Birth Control Day, Cecile Richards said, “Happy #ThxBirthControl Day—like Thanksgiving, but for birth control! Here’s why I’m thankful.”

We thought that since the abortion giant was celebrating birth control, we would publish quotes by early Black leaders from our documentary film Maafa21, which document that they viewed abortion and birth control as a form of eugenics.

Writing for Planned Parenthood founder, Margaret Sanger’s Birth Control Review, in 1932, Walter Terpenning, said that birth control among the black population was eugenic, “…the practice of birth control among the majority of colored people would probably be more eugenic than among their white compatriots. The dissemination of the information of birth control should have begun with this class rather than with the upper social and economic classes of white citizens.

Sanger Eugenics value BC

In 1921, Margaret Sanger, confirmed the eugenic value of birth control even calling it identical with the final aim of eugenics, when she wrote, “The eugenic and civilization value of birth control is becoming apparent to the enlightened and the intelligent … the campaign for birth control is not merely of eugenic value, but is practically identical in ideal with the final aim of eugenics.”

In a 1500 page book on the Black “problem” eugenicist Gunnar Myrdal noted that “birth control facilities” could be placed in Black neighborhoods.

American Dilemma BC Facilities quote Maafa21

In Chapter Seven of An American Dilemma: the Negro Problem and Modern Democracy, Myrdal writes, “…birth control facilities could be extended relatively more to Negroes than to whites, since Negroes are more concentrated in the lower income and education classes…

BLACKS TAKE NOTICE:

The idea that Planned Parenthood clinics were swarming into Black neighborhoods pushing birth control and abortion alarmed the black community.

LeroySwiftQuote

In 1968, Obstetrician/Gynecologist Dr. Leroy Swift, noted that “Birth control and sterilization in the wrong hands would be more deadly to Negroes than all the tanks, riot guns, cattle prods, billy clubs, and shackles we have overcome in the past.”

That same year the Black Unity Party, wrote, “Under the cover of an alleged campaign to ‘alleviate poverty,’ white supremacist Americans and their dupes are pushing an all-out drive to put rigid birth control measures into every black home. No such drive exists within the white American world.”

Van Keys Maafa21

The following year, a member of the Oakland Chapter, Black Panther Party, Van Keys, said that the push was a form of mass extermination, writing, “The racist tells you to take birth control pills to kill, to murder life that might have existed if you had not … They are planning mass extermination of people they consider dispensable.”

Muhammed Speaks

Calling it a hate crime of sorts, by 1970, an article published in Muhammed Speaks, the Black Muslim Newspaper, said that Blacks were the target of birth control, “Black people are the target of birth control not because the ruling politicians like them and care about their economic equality, but because they hate them and can no longer use them in plantations and other cheap-labor conditions.”

Haden into blk cmmty Planned Parenthood Maafa21

After witnessing Planned Parenthood centers flooding his neighborhoods, in 1971, Black civil rights activist, William Bouie Haden called Planned Parenthood, Planned-Black-Genocide, “Into the black community stepped Planned-Parenthood; only when they came into the black community they’ve become Planned-Black-Genocide. Planned Parenthood for whites, birth control for blacks.

Contraceptives Drug Warfare

Shockingly, even Jesse Jackson saw that birth control was being targeted at the Black community and wrote this in 1971, “Birth Control as a National policy will simply marshal sophisticated methods to remove ( and control when not remove) the weak, the poor – quite likely the black and other minorities whose relative increase in population threatens the white caste in this nation. Contraceptives, will become a form of drug warfare against the helpless in this nation. Those who we could not get rid of in the rice paddies of Viet-Nam we now propose to exterminate, if necessary, eliminate if possible, in the OB wards and gynecology clinics of our urban hospitals. The direct extension of the old “man-in-the-house” rule against public aid recipients can be detected in the drive for birth control…”

In 1974, Roy Innis, National Director of The Congress of Racial Equality, told Ebony Magazine, that he was alarmed by the high concentration of birth control centers and abortion clinics in black neighborhoods, “It was not until the mid 60’s that blacks began to realize that what was called urban renewal was, in fact, what one city planner labeled, ‘Negro removal.’ … We are alarmed by the high concentration of birth control centers and abortion clinics in black neighborhoods as well as more exotic proposals such as adding anti-fertility drugs to drinking water, as suggested by a famous Chicago economist.”

Birth Control and abortion the great eugenic advances of our time

Frederick Osborn

But…nothing sums up the agenda of birth control like reading what a leader in the eugenics movement wrote.

Frederick Osborn, was a founding member of the American Eugenics Society, and a member of Sanger’s organization. In 1973, Osborn summed up his observation of birth control this way, Birth Control and abortion are turning out to be the great eugenic advances of our time.

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

Osborn went onto state that, “Eugenic goals are most likely attained under a name other than eugenics.

How true that statement has become !

Below is a list of quotes from the past – YOU DECIDE !

The number of contraceptive clinics rose from 34 in 1930 to 803 in 1942. In three states North Carolina, South Carolina, and Alabama- public health authorities have taken the most lead in bringing birth control clinics to rural areas, where they are the most needed. ( SOURCE: An American Dilemma; the Negro problem and Modern Democracy by: Gunnar Myrdal, 1944; Harper and Brothers Publishers; New York P. 178)

In 1942 the name of the Margaret Sanger’s American Birth Control League, was changed to the Planned Parenthood Federation of America. Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest abortion provider and has most of it’s clinics in minority neighborhoods.

In 1958, State Representative of Mississippi David H Glass sponsored a sterilization bill.
He was angered by black women who made it a business to give birth to illegitimate children and collected welfare assistance for them. Glass wanted to “ stop, or slow down, such traffic at its source.” According to Mississippi’s The Delta Democrat-Times, Glass said it was designed to limit the number if illegitimate Negro children. Four times more Black children than Whites were receiving Aid to Families with Dependent Children in Mississippi in the early 60’s. ( SOURCE: Genocide? Birth Control and the Black American by Robert G. Weisbord: Greenwoord Press, 1975; PP. 141-142 and The Delta Democrat-Times, Bill would have unwed mothers sterilized: 2/7/1958; P2)

In 1960, Nelson A Howard, JR. , Pasadena Planned Parenthood Committee, Drive Chairman, said,
For every 1000 unwanted pregnancies Planned Parenthood helps avoid in indigent families, tax payers save more than a million dollars a year.” ( In 1965, He was named area co-chairman of the second nationwide campaign of Planned Parenthood- World Population)
( SOURCE: Pasadena Independent: Tax Saving cited by Birth Club: 2/4/1960, P. 19)

As [ Margaret] Sanger , ( Founder of Planned Parenthood), allied herself with the burgeoning eugenics movement, the call for birth control veered away from its radical, feminist origins to include programs to regulate the poor, immigrants and blacks, based on theories of genetic inferiority and social degeneracy. Some blacks of the period, including the nationalist leader Marcus Garvey, opposed birth control as a form of “race suicide.” ( SOURCE: Alan Guttmacher, Family Planning Perspectives, Volume 32, Number 2, March/April 2000 :Forum: Black Women and the Pill, By Dorothy Roberts )

In 1965, Langston Hughes wrote in his column, “ White folks are not thinking about being sterilized, neither in war nor peace. It is India, China, Africa and Harlem they is considering- 300 million dollars worth of birth control for us! You know I really do believe white folks has got something up their sleeve for colored folks. Yes, they has.” ( SOURCE: Population Explosion, by Langston Hughes, NY Post : 12/10/1965)

In 1965, At the White House Conference on Civil Rights sponsored by Lyndon Johnson, Cecil Moore of the NAACP, made this attack on population control, “ And I have noticed that every time that we talk about population and planned parenthood, the only country I find that wants to limit poverty by limiting the poor- they always want to do it in Africa and South America and Asia , but I never heard them talk about doing it in Paris or England. Then I hope I am not belaboring the point, but don’t take that away from Negroes because we don’t have much else.” ( SOURCE: The Historical Journal, Vol. 41, No. 1 ( Mar., 1998) pp. 259-282, The 1966 White House Conference on Civil Rights, by Kevin L. Yuill, quoting transcript records of the WHCCR)

In 1968, this was reported in the Press-Courier: Many black militants also see the government’s participation in birth control programs as “black genocide.” As one militant put it to this column: “Whitey is trying to get us before we’re born.”
In some U. S. cities, the government finances clinics where disadvantaged persons get instruction in family planning and are given contraceptives free of charge. In other places,
Government finances programs to promote birth control.
( SOURCE: THE PRESS-COURIER, PAGE FOUR Thursday, Sept, 12, 1968)

In a March 1968 article in Ebony Magazine, Douglas Stewart, Director of the National Office of Community Relations of Planned Parenthood spoke of the fear of genocide against blacks, “Many Negro women have told our workers, There are two kinds of pills – one for white women and one for us…and the one for us causes sterilization. This is a very real fear for some women’” (SOURCE: Ebony Magazine, Birth Control and the Negro Woman, By Mary Smith: March 1968; PP. 29-37 )

In December of 1969, President Richard Nixon’s White House Conference on Food and Nutrition, was a farce. Not only did it dash the hopes of the hungry in a way unprecedented, it also succeeded in advancing- against strong sentiments of the poor at the conference- the administration’s own program of imposing birth control on the Blackpoor . ..His [ Nixon’s] primary concern was obviously toward reducing the number of hungry-not hunger itself.
There appeared inadvertently in the press room during the first morning of the conference a working paper of the panel on the “Pregnant and Nursing Women and Infants”, which was the first panel under a section titled “Establishing Guidelines for the Nutrition of Vulnerable Groups ( With Special Reference to the Poor).” …First and foremost , that panel was following the same wish devoutly expressed by the President, himself: Birth Control. What this panel concocted for tacit approval and adoption by the conference of poor and hungry people was a cleverly phrased recommendation that Congress pass a law providing for:
Making birth control information and devices available to any and all girls over the age of 13 who requested them , with or without the permission of parents.
Mandatory abortion for any such unmarried girl found to be pregnant and within the first three months of that pregnancy
Mandatory sterilization of any such girl giving birth out of wedlock for a second time.
A look at the panel itself showed only one black person present</strong
Mrs. Fannie Lou Hamer asked whether she would favor such birth control measures proposed by Dr. Lowe’s panel, she responded with shock and disappointment, “ What? What are you talking about? Birth Control? I didn’t come here to talk about birth control. I came here to get some food to feed poor, hungry people. Where are they carrying on that kind of talk?

In a 1970, in a commencement speech at Syracuse University, Julian Bond, said this as the director of the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee, which he helped found. At the time of the speech, he was a member of the Board of Trustees of the Southern Conference Education Fund, of the Advisory Board of the proposed Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Library, and of the Executive Committee of the Atlanta NAACP. Bond suggested that the intense interest in the ‘population bomb” could lead to genocide of black Americans and other poor people.( SOURCE: Transcript, Commencement address delivered at Syracuse University by Julian Bond on June 6,1970)

In 1970, Paul Ehrlich , author of The Population Bomb, made this statement after the The Black Caucus withdrew from the First National Congress on Optimum Population and Environment,
When you run a white racist society, the minority is bound to express nervousness. If you’re a black man and white are talking about birth control, it’s natural for you to conclude that they mean to control black population.” (SOURCE: The Register: Blacks couldn’t cope with COPE: 6/15/1970)

In a recent survey of 500 black Americans, only half believed that the government tells the truth about the safety and side effects of new birth control methods.
Birth control conspiracy theories still affect the use of birth control by black men and women, according to a study reported in the latest issue of the journal Health Education and Behavior.
One-third of participants of the telephone survey said that medical institutions use poor and minority people as “guinea pigs”to try out new birth control methods, according to study authors Sheryl Thorburn of Oregon State University and Laura Bogart of the Rand Corporation. Substantial numbers of those surveyed also believed that the government uses birth control as a way to control the black population in America. Almost a quarter of those surveyed agreed that “poor and minority women are sometimes forced to be sterilized by the government”, while 22 percent agreed that “the government’s family planning policies are intended to control the number of Black people.
