The Population Council has a shocking 65-year history, and it’s nothing to celebrate

(From Live Action News)

John D Rockefeller-founded Population-Council

The Population Council, the eugenics organization credited with bringing the abortion pill RU-486 to the United States, turns 65 this month — but it is nothing to celebrate.

In 1952, John D. Rockefeller III founded the Population Council and served as the organization’s first president.  According to the Rockefeller Foundation, the Population Council, Inc., was incorporated following Rockefeller’s Conference on Population Problems, “…to stimulate, encourage, promote, conduct and support significant activities in the broad field of population.”

Like its founder, the Population Council’s other members were concerned about population issues — and, like other population organizations such as Planned Parenthood, high ranking Population Council leaders were well connected to the eugenics movement.

Frederick Osborn

 

Frederic Osborn followed Rockefeller as Population Council president in 1957. Osborn was a founding member of the American Eugenics Society who signed Margaret Sanger’s “Citizens Committee for Planned Parenthood,” published in April of 1938. Osborn once wrote, “Eugenic goals are most likely attained under a name other than eugenics.” Some speculate that Planned Parenthood’s infamous slogan, “Every Child a Wanted Child,” may have originated with Osborn. 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.”

Frank W Notestein

Frank W. Notestein followed Osborn as president in 1959. Like Osborn, he was member of the American Eugenics Society and as the American Philosophical Society, according to a biography published by Princeton University. He was also one of the organization’s original four trustees, according to the Population Council’s 1957 Annual Report.

In 1939, Notestein and Osborn served together on the Medical Advisory Board for Margaret Sanger’s Birth Control Federation. By 1967, under Notestein’s leadership, the Population Council released a controversial film, entitled “Family Planning,” which featured Disney’s iconic cartoon figure Donald Duck. It was one of many efforts in the 1960s and ’70s to indoctrinate the culture on the use of birth control.

By 1970, Notestein was serving on the Board of Directors of Planned Parenthood-World Population.

Bernard Berelson

Bernard Berelson took the helm of Population Council in 1968, as its fourth president. A year later, in 1969, Berelson published an article which suggested that if voluntary methods of birth control were not successful, it may become necessary for the government to put a “fertility control agent” in the water supplies of “urban” neighborhoods. The article was published in the journal, “Studies in Family Planning,” published by the Population Council. Berelson was also featured in the Population Council’s first issue of “Population and Development Review.”

 

Alan F. Guttmacher, M.D. sat on the Population Council’s first Medical Advisory Board. Guttmacher, a former Planned Parenthood president, was also vice president of the American Eugenics Society. His ideas of forced or compulsory population control measures were in lock-step with Planned Parenthood’s founder Margaret Sanger, who made sure that Planned Parenthood was knee deep in eugenics. Guttmacher’s namesake institution, the Guttmacher Institute, would later be referred to as a “research arm” and a “special affiliate” of Planned Parenthood.

Thomas Parran, Jr. was on the original Population Council’s board of trustees. On paper, he has a very distinguished career, having been named the nation’s sixth U.S. Surgeon General, building support for the passage of Social Security as well as the establishment of the World Health Organization. His name even appeared on the public health building of the University of Pittsburgh as “one of the giants of 20th-century medicine.”

But according to USA Today, “Parran’s legacy was tainted in 2010, when the U.S. government apologized to Guatemala for the syphilis experiments that exposed 1,308 men, women and children to syphilis without consent from 1946 to 1948. Parran approved of the experiments, conducted by U.S. Public Health Service physician John Cutler.” (Cutler and his wife Eleise contributed to the Population Council and Cutler’s wife admitted that she served on the board of Planned Parenthood.)

Earlier this year, Philly.com reported that Parran was suspected of being the “intellectual inspiration of the infamous Tuskegee Syphilis Study”:

Regrettably, Parran’s great work, impressive resume, and proud legacy are besmirched by his ethical violations. The truth of his association with horrendous experiments using impoverished Alabama sharecroppers, federal prison inmates, and an array of vulnerable subjects in Guatemala who were purposefully infected with syphilis were already known. But newly discovered evidence disclosing his role as the architect of the Tuskegee study may have caused his already troubling case to reach the tipping point…

Pitt trustees now must confront evidence showing Parran was more than a distant bureaucrat during the Tuskegee study. New documents disclose that Parran believed the African American population of Macon County, Ala., was perfect for a nontreatment exercise. “If one wished to study the natural history of syphilis in the Negro race uninfluenced by treatment,” Parran wrote in January 1932, “this county would be an ideal location for such a study.”

Eugenics founded Guttmacher praises Eugenics founded Population Council which turned 65

The Rockefeller family has long been connected to eugenics. According to author Rebecca Messall, “Rockefeller money funded eugenic scientists decades before Hitler put eugenic theories into practice.”

According to author Edwin Black (emphasis added), “Eugenics would have been so much bizarre parlor talk had it not been for extensive financing by corporate philanthropies, specifically the Carnegie Institution, the Rockefeller Foundation and the Harriman railroad fortune. They were all in league with some of America’s most respected scientists hailing from such prestigious universities as Stamford, Yale, Harvard, and Princeton. These academicians espoused race theory and race science, and then faked and twisted data to serve eugenics’ racist aims… The Rockefeller Foundation helped found the German eugenics program and even funded the program that Josef Mengele worked in before he went to Auschwitz.”

These academicians espoused race theory and race science, and then faked and twisted data to serve eugenics’ racist aims… The Rockefeller Foundation helped found the German eugenics program and even funded the program that Josef Mengele worked in before he went to Auschwitz.”

Black added, “In May 1926, Rockefeller awarded $250,000 to the German Psychiatric Institute of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute, later to become the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Psychiatry. Among the leading psychiatrists at the German Psychiatric Institute was Ernst Rüdin, who became director and eventually an architect of Hitler’s systematic medical repression.” (NOTE: In 1933, Rüdin’s call for racial purity was published in Margaret Sanger’s Birth Control Review. According to the documentary film, Maafa21, Rudin would be chosen by Hitler to write Germany’s eugenics laws.)

Rockefeller III once claimed that birth control was “directly related to the matter of meaningful peace.”

In her review of the book, “Fatal Misconception: The Struggle to Control World Population,” written by Columbia University historian Matthew Connelly, C-Fam author Susan Yoshihara, Ph.D, discovered what led up to Rockefeller’s founding of the Population Council:

John D Rockefeller III (Image: Rockefeller Foundation)

In 1952, at a secret, invitation-only gathering in Colonial Williamsburg, John D. Rockefeller III brought together what would become the modern population control establishment. Setting the agenda for the following decades were the heads of the United States Atomic Energy Commission, National Academy of Sciences, and top scientists “from embryology to economics,” including past and present Nobel Prize winners.

From verbatim transcripts of the “Conference on Population Problems,” just one of the countless number of such meetings the book exposes, Connelly found that what drove them were the questions of how many people the world could hold along with “whether ‘industrial development should be withheld’ from poor, agrarian countries like India.” By decreasing mortality and encouraging “breeding,” development would increase inferior populations and further degrade “the genetic quality of the human race.” They decided radical measures to reduce birthrates were justified in order to save “Western Civilization” from being dragged down by the growing humanitarian demands of Third World countries.

Thus was born the Population Council, which would in turn become the nexus of the entire population control movement, going on to coordinate the work of the United Nations, the Ford and Rockefeller foundations, International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) – founded three weeks later – as well as major pharmaceutical firms.

In 1994, with the encouragement of the Clinton administration, french pharmaceutical manufacturer Roussel-Uclaf assigned the US rights of marketing and distribution of abortion pill RU-486 to the Population Council. The right to distribute the harmful drugs were later handed over to Danco Laboratories, a sub-licensee of the Population Council.

In 2015, a Government Accountability Office (GAO) report found that from fiscal year 2010 through 2012, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) reported sending about $236 million to six organizations and their affiliates and member associations: Advocates for Youth, Guttmacher Institute, International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF), Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA), the Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS), and the Population Council.

Today, abortion remains among the Population Council’s strategic priorities, according to its latest annual report.

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.

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!”

Letetr

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.

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.”

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.
