Bill Gates and Planned Parenthood:

GATES: When I was growing up, my parents were almost involved in various volunteer things. My dad was head of Planned Parenthood. And it was very controversial to be involved with that. And so it’s fascinating. At the dinner table my parents are very good at sharing the things that they were doing. And almost treating us like adults, talking about that.
My mom was on the United Way group that decides how to allocate the money and looks at all the different charities and makes the very hard decisions about where that pool of funds is going to go. So I always knew there was something about really educating people and giving them choices in terms of family size.

Planned Parenthood was founded on racist eugenics

Proctor and Gamble heir Clarence Gamble and Eugenics

In this Questions, answers about history of eugenics in US, published by the Associated Press, the AP highlights the role of Planned Parenthood supporter Clarence Gamble in Eugenics, a movement created to discriminate against the so-called unfit and feebleminded, which usually led to racism and the forced sterilization of blacks in Americas. True to form, the media has censored any correlation from Gamble to the Planned Parenthood movement founded by Gamble’s near and dear friend Margaret Sanger.

Quoting from =the article:

One of the leading promoters of the North Carolina eugenics program was Dr. Clarence Gamble, a Boston doctor and heir to the Proctor & Gamble fortune. He helped form Birthright and was the driving force behind the national campaign.

Gamble convinced his brother Cecil Gamble to help, and in December 1944, the Gamble Family Trust made a $10,000 donation to Birthright, which would be the equivalent to about $125,000 today.

Clarence Gamble didn’t have a role in Proctor & Gamble, and while Cecil Gamble was on the board, the company said last year the donation was personal and in no way reflected the firm’s opinion.

Birthright later changed its name to the Human Betterment Association. They had a national office in New York and loosely-affiliated chapters in North Carolina, Georgia, Iowa, Arkansas and Texas. Some of the chapters were short-lived, but the one in North Carolina operated for almost 30 years.

Gamble hired a New York City advertising firm to help sell the campaign. Leading journalists, along with some doctors and professors, voiced support, too.

Gamble and his colleagues launched the expanded eugenics campaign with the intention it would cut across all social and racial categories. A eugenics document written in 1945 said: “It is designed to check the reproduction of defectives wherever they may be found, in institutions or at large, in the richest family or the poorest family, without regard to color, race, or religion.


Planned Parenthood’s founder Margaret Sanger was a racist eugenics supporter and members and Planned Parenthood got referrals from their eugenics Courts. One of Sanger’s supporters and financiers was Clarence Gamble and he funded the NC Eugenics Society which sterilized many black women including Elaine Riddick.


Tens of thousands of Americans were sterilized from the 1920s into the 1970s under programs that embraced eugenics – the idea that one way to improve the population was to limit the number of children born to people with undesirable traits.

North Carolina performed the third-most eugenic sterilizations in the United States, behind California and Virginia. North Carolina is the first state to consider compensating people who were sterilized under its eugenics program.

“They cut me open like I was a hog,” said Elaine Riddick, who was sterilized at age 14. “I didn’t even know nothing about this stuff.”
Riddick, now 57, said her only crime was being poor, BLACK, and from a bad home environment.

Clarence Gamble a supporter and funder of the founder of Planned Parenthood’s founder Margaret Sanger… funded the North Carolina Eugenics Society which sterilized this woman and many black women as well. Click Here : Clarence Gamble.

Gamble also supported Margaret Sanger’s Birth Control Movement. Sanger was the founder of Planned Parenthood and she had many of her board members and presidents were members of the American Eugenics Society.

According to the North Carolina Winston-Salem Journal, Clarence Gamble who helped found the Human Betterment League of North Carolina in 1947 did so to promote eugenic sterilization. Journal research shows a long history of abuses in the N.C. sterilization program – abuses that Gamble consistently glossed over..” Gamble wanted sterilizations to increase rather than decrease, and increase they did.

Think the targeting of blacks for sterilization was coincidence? Just like they way they are targeted today for abortion??? Think again:

Read what Planned Parenthood Founder, Margaret Sanger, wrote to Dr. Clarence Gamble (who funded the State of North Carolina’s Eugenics Programs) in a letterdated December 19, 1939,
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.” that plan was called “The NEGRO Project”.

UNFPA: Family Planning a Human Right ! Can you say Eugenic Population Control?

Posted in Bill Gates, Sex selection abortion, UNFPA, United Nations with tags , , , , , , , , , , on November 15, 2012 by saynsumthn

The world economy would be boosted by billions of dollars if all women had access to contraception, the United Nations said on Wednesday in its annual State of World Population report.

The report said inadequate family planning in developing countries contributed significantly to poverty and ill health, and that $5.7 billion could be saved by preventing unintended pregnancies and unsafe abortions.

Eugenics Attitude:

In 1965, President Lyndon Johnson stated in a speech, that every five dollars the government spent on population control was worth more than a hundred dollars invested in economic growth. In 1966, Johnson accepted Planned Parenthood’s highest award (the Margaret Sanger Award) for his policies pushing family planning on foreign countries. (Sanger founded Planned Parenthood, was a racist member of the American Eugenics Society who admitted she gave a Klan Speech)

Johnson was a staunch supporter of the racist /eugenics founded Planned Parenthood organization. Here (LBJ) Lyndon B. Johnson accepts the Margaret Sanger Award and it is mentioned that Dwight D. Eisenhower and Harry S. Truman are co-chairs of a Planned Parenthood honorary council- here
( SOURCE: Lodi News-Sentinel – Oct 10, 1966)

This clip from the documentary MAAFA21 shows how saying that Family Planning reduces “Costs” is a Scheme by the Elite to force population control:

“FAMILY PLANNING [ in poor countries] A RIGHT”

Family planning is not a privilege, but a right. Yet, too many women — and men — are denied this human right,” said Babatunde Osotimehin, executive director of the UN Population Fund (UNFPA).

“The data that we have shows that access to family planning unlocks unprecedented rewards, both at the individual and national level,” the former Nigerian health minister told a press conference in London.

“Women who have access to family planning can contribute enormously to economic development. The accumulated effect of these highly personal decisions can influence entire countries and regions.”

H/T Catholic Online

The United Nation’s Population Fund’s (UNFPA) Annual Report published on November 14, 2012, is entitled “By Choice, Not by Chance: Family Planning, Human Rights and Development,” Dr. Babatunde Osotimehin, the executive director of the fund, described family planning-which is code for artificial contraception-as a universal human right.

“Family planning is a human right,” wrote Dr. Osotimehin. “It must therefore be available to all who want it. But clearly this right has not yet been extended to all, especially in the poorest countries. Obstacles remain. Some have to do with the quality and availability of supplies and services, but many others have to do with economic circumstances and social constraints.”

Dr. Osotimehin seeks to spend an extra $4.1 billion a year to make family planning available to anyone who wants it. “Family planning is still more akin to a privilege enjoyed by some rather than a universal right exercised by all.”

___________________________________________

Written on Page 3 of the document is this astounding statement:

Reproductive rights encompass both freedoms and entitlements involving civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights. The right to decide the number and spacing of children is integral to the reproductive rights framework and is therefore directly related to other basic human rights, including:
The right to life;
• The right to liberty and security of person;
• The right to health, including sexual and reproductive health;
• The right to consent to marriage and to equality in marriage;
• The right to privacy;
• The right to equality and non-discrimination;
• The right not to be subjected to torture or other cruel, inhuman, or
degrading treatment or punishment;
• The right to education, including access to sexuality education;
• The right to participate in the conduct of public affairs and the right to
free, active and meaningful participation;
• The right to seek, impart and receive information and to have freedom
of expression;
• The right to benefit from scientific progress

The so-called “RIGHT to LIFE” is often denied under the “Reproductive Rights” agenda, which includes Emergency Contraception and Abortion.

In April of 2012, IPPF ( International Planned Parenthood Federation) held a luncheon where the UNFPA leader spoke. According to IPPF, Dr. Osotimehin stated that universal access to sexual and reproductive health remains an urgent challenge and that youth need safe spaces to express themselves. He spoke about the positive impact investments in girls has on global development and explained that comprehensive sexuality education not only helps youth make informed decisions about their personal well being; it also improves the lives of everyone in their community.

World leaders to meet in London in July to pour cash into family planning in the developing world

The Guardian is reported that A major summit was planned for July that aimed to pour money into family planning in the developing world after almost two decades of neglect, particularly during the Bush years.

Parallel to this, millions of dollars are being spent by the Gates Foundation on developing more efficient forms of contraception, particularly injections that might only be required once every six months or annually.

The executive director of the UN Population Fund, Babatunde Osotimehin, in an interview with the Guardian, described proposals at the summit to turn family planning into a global movement as “transformational”.

It was organized by none other than the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the British government’s department for international development (DFID). Between 20 and 25 countries are scheduled to attend, including the US, India, Ethiopia, Nigeria and Tanzania.

The aim of the summit was to provide better family planning in 69 of the poorest countries with low rates of contraception. Much of the $4bn will come from the health budgets of these countries, with the rest coming from the Gates Foundation, DFID and other countries.

Osotimehin said: “It is about global planning … what will it take to provide these facilities to women and girls around the world and actually change the course of their lives. That is what will make it transformational.”

Melinda French Gates: Family Planning in Kenya

This is masking the Eugenic NASSM200 plan:

Listen to what our own president, Lyndon B. Johnson had to say< LBJ Faces up a Crisis: Johnson also stated, “Nations with food deficits must put more of their resources into voluntary family planning programs.” ( SOURCE: Lewiston Evening Journal – Feb 2, 1967 , from Johnson’s 1967 State of the Union Address )

On December 10, 1974, the United States National Security Council promulgated National Security Study Memorandum 200 (NSSM-200), also called The Kissinger Report. This document explicitly laid out a detailed strategy by which the United States would aggressively promote population control in developing nations in order to regulate (or have better access to) the natural resources of these countries.

In order to protect U.S. commercial interests, NSSM-200 cited a number of factors that could interrupt the smooth flow of materials from lesser-developed countries, LDCs as it called them, to the United States, including a large population of anti-imperialist youth, who must, according to NSSM-200, be limited by population control. The document identified 13 nations by name that would be primary targets of U.S.-funded population control efforts.

According to NSSM-200, elements of the implementation of population control programs could include: a) the legalization of abortion; b) financial incentives for countries to increase their abortion, sterilization and contraception-use rates; c) indoctrination of children; and d) mandatory population control, and coercion of other forms, such as withholding disaster and food aid unless an LDC implements population control programs.

While the CIA and Departments of State and Defense have issued hundreds of papers on population control and national security, the U.S. government has never renounced NSSM-200, but has only amended certain portions of its policy. NSSM-200, therefore, remains the foundational document on population control issued by the United States government.

In 1969, Guttmacher as then President of Planned Parenthood-World Population, said this: “ I would like to give our voluntary means of population control full opportunity in the next 10 to 12 years. Then , if these don’t succeed, we may have to go into some kind of coercion, not worldwide, but possibly in such places as India, Pakistan, and Indonesia, where pressures are the greatest…There is no question that birth rates can be reduced all over the world if legal abortion is introduced…” ( SOURCE: Family Planning: The needa and the Methods, by: Alan F. Guttmacher; The American Journal of Nursing, Vol. 69, No. 6. (June, 1969) PP. 1229-1234)

And in February of 1970 Alan Guttmacher was interviewed by the Baltimore Magazine and said this
Our birth rate has come down since we last talked.. I think we’ve hit a plateau- the figure’s not likely to drop much more unless there is more legal abortion. , or abortion on request as we call it…My own feeling is that we’ve got to pull out all the stops and involve the United Nations…If you’re going to curb population, it’s extremely important not to have it done by the dammed Yankees, but by the UN. Because the thing is, then it’s not considered genocide. If the United States goes to the Black man or the yellow man and says slow down your reproduction rate, we’re immediately suspected of having ulterior motives to keep the white man dominant in the world. If you can send in a colorful UN force, you’ve got much better leverage.”

Kenyans did NOT Want abortion legalized. The United States forced it on them under NSSM reasons – In fact, when they stood against the legalization, they were bombed: A peaceful anti-constitution protest and prayer service on June 13, 2010 turned violent when two bombs exploded, killing six people and injuring over 100 more, according to Kenyan newspaper The Standard.

Not only were opponents being bombed, their leaders were being arrested. Three members of the Kenyan parliament were taken into custody on June 16 on charges of alleged hate speech relating to their prominent leadership in opposing the new constitution.

Three other members of parliament were also accused of hate speech, including Higher Education Minister William Ruto, widely seen as a leader in the campaign against the new pro-abortion constitution. The Obama administration offered “incentives” to Kenya to approve the pro-abortion constitution legalizing abortion for the first time, promising that passage will “allow money to flow” into the nation’s coffers, including U.S. aid. The pressure worked and Kenya passed it.

This is about POPULATION CONTROL – Increasing abortions in African nations is part of the NSSM200 plan.

Simply listen to the words ex Planned Parenthood President, Alan Guttmacher told a symposium at the University of California Medical Center in 1966 he stated that, “the belief that the white middle class was coercing their own poor and people with black and yellow skins to reduce family size because the middle-class whites are frightened of being outnumbered.”

The only way the mounting feeling that birth control is a tool of racism can be handled, is to involve knowledgeable leaders from the minority groups who understand and are favorable to the philosophy of birth control. They, in turn, must translate their appreciation of the contribution which birth control can make toward family stability to their own people.” (SOURCE: New York Times: Doctor blames his profession for delays on Family Planning: 1/16/1966)

Planned Parenthood founder, Margaret Sanger, was a member in good standing with the racist American Eugenics Society. Sanger had boards 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)

Big Brother as a Gates Vaccine Monitor

Posted in Big Brother, Bill Gates, Vaccinations with tags , , , , , on November 6, 2012 by saynsumthn

According to a press release issued by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation:

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation today announced more than $21 million US in new grants through its Grand Challenges Explorations (GCE) initiative.GCE is a tiered granting mechanism that funds innovative ideas to tackle key global health and development problems, and provides additional resources for projects that demonstrate initial promise. Included in today’s announcement is the first group of grantees who were selected, in partnership with Cannes Lions , to identify new ways to communicate that foreign aid is working. Also new to this round are projects working to develop new anti-malarial drugs thanks to unprecedented access to 400 compounds in the “Malaria Box”.

Ninety-four projects representing 19 countries were funded at the Phase I level including: Vaccine Monitors

Vaccine Monitors

Noor Sabah Rakhshani of the Trust for Vaccines and Immunization in Pakistan will develop children’s ankle bands that change color when children are due for their next vaccination.

According to Natural News, Gates intends to do a surveillance operation across the Internet and locate anti-vaccine advocates. His minions will then undertake a counter-insurgency campaign to neutralize them.

How does such an operation work? I’ll tell you how it works: “This writer has no medical credentials.” “This writer is spreading dangerous information that will harm children.” “This filmmaker tells lies about the most important medical technology the world has ever seen.” “The evidence for vaccination is overwhelming, and this writer is operating out of the Dark Ages.”

And that’s just the nice stuff.

“This writer was once an MD, but it’s been said he gave up his practice after several patients made complaints to the medical board. Now he spends all his time attacking vaccines. He’s a criminal menace.”

“Don’t read anything by this writer. He’s obviously mentally ill. He wants you to stop vaccinating your children, so they can catch life-threatening diseases.”

And it will go downhill and get nastier from there.

In 2010, Bill Gates, co-chair and trustee of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, gave a keynote address at the mHealth Summit, an annual gathering that focuses on improving health care through mobile technology.

Gates told an audience of more than 2,000 that if we could register every worldwide birth on a cell phone, we could ensure that children receive the proper vaccines.

Gates said computing technology has been great for health care, and there are plenty of opportunities to use the cell phone in clinic settings.

“About one-third [of that improvement] is by increasing income,” he said. “The majority has been through vaccines. Vaccines will be the key. If you could register every birth on a cell phoneget fingerprints, get a location—then you could [set up] systems to make sure the immunizations happen.

Gates said he’d like to see a birth registration system, and because it’s a new technology, “we should let 1,000 new ideas blossom.”

But, Gates’ “death panel” comments were made at the Aspen Ideas Festival in Aspen Colorado implies that it is cost effective to allow certain sick people to die and to not spend any effort saving their lives.

During a question and answer session, Gates implied that elderly patients undergoing expensive health care treatments should be killed and the money spent elsewhere.

Gates said there was a “lack of willingness” to consider the question of choosing between “spending a million dollars on that last three months of life for that patient” or laying off ten teachers.

But that’s called the death panel and you’re not supposed to have that discussion,” added Gates.

Gates is sooooo concerned about children that he funds eugenics and population control around the world and is a strong supporter of the nation’s largest abortion provider: Planned Parenthood whose eugenic ideals are outlined in the documentary: Maafa21

GMO Rice? Bill Gates allocates $14 million for C4 Rice

Posted in Bill Gates, Genetically Modified Food with tags , , , , , , on November 6, 2012 by saynsumthn

The Business Mirror is reporting that THE Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF), the British government and the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) have allocated $14 million to fund the  second phase of research for C4 rice over the next three years.

In a statement, IRRI said the second phase of the project aims to produce C4 rice prototypes for testing.

“C4 rice” dubbed “the rice of the future” has a built-in fuel injector to better convert sunlight into grain, potentially resulting in up to 50 percent higher production while using less water  and nutrients.

“This is exactly the sort of innovative scientific research that the Prime Minister was calling for at the Hunger Summit at Downing Street earlier this year,” said Lynne Featherstone, the  UK Parliamentary Undersecretary of State for International Development, in a statement.

Prof. Joe Cummins reviews genetically modified rice in Japan and points to overlooked dangers

Japanese experiments in GM rice are technically sophisticated but the human and environmental safety of the GM crops has not yet been full evaluated. In particular, the human cytochrome p450 genes are already known to activate carcinogens. They should not be used in rice, which is an important food crop that is eaten widely as a staple in Japan and many parts of Asia. The extensive use of aggressive CaMV–based superpromoters untested for safety, and the incorporation of human genes will both increase the potential of transgenic DNA to invade human genomes through illegitimate and homologous recombination, with dangerous consequences including the creation/activation of new viruses or cancer .

Rajat Gupta, a former Goldman Sachs executive and adviser to the Bill & Melinda Gates’ and the William J. Clinton’s foundations, was sentenced Wednesday to two years in prison for passing sensitive stock information to a business partner, according to Bloomberg and The New York Times.

Mr. Gupta was convicted in June of tipping off hedge-fund manager Raj Rajaratnam, with whom he founded a private-equity firm, about a major deal involving Goldman in 2008. Federal District Judge Jed Rakoff also ordered Mr. Gupta to pay a $5-million fine.

Mr. Gupta, who also led consulting firm McKinsey & Co. in what had been a glittering Wall Street career, was active in humanitarian circles, chairing a panel that advised the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation on international development and working in efforts to battle AIDS, malaria, and other diseases in poor nations.

Bloomberg is reporting that the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation signed an agreement with the Islamic Development Bank for a program to fight contagious diseases and provide food security in several countries, the Saudi Press Agency reported.

The five-year program will cover projects mainly in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Nigeria, SPA reported, citing Ahmad Mohamed Ali, chairman and president of the Jeddah, Saudi Arabia- based Islamic Development Bank.

According to The National, A memorandum of understanding signed by IDB, based in Jeddah, and the Gates Foundation establishes a collaboration over five years for agricultural development, and the elimination of malaria and polio across Pakistan, Afghanistan and Nigeria.

“I am enthusiastic about our collaboration with the Islamic Development Bank,” said Bill Gates, the co-chair of the foundation.

IDB provides financial assistance to 56 countries in the Islamic world in loans and grants.
