Obama White House violating international “right to life” with drone strikes?

Posted in Drones, Obama and Drones with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 22, 2013 by saynsumthn

Two leading human rights groups released detailed reports on U.S. drone strikes Tuesday that accuse the government of killing civilians and violating international law. The White House admitted killing civilians, but denied breaking the law, saying the strikes were “precise” and “lawful.”

Amnesty International, which studied 45 drone strikes in Pakistan in 2012 and 2013, said the U.S. violated the internationally recognized “right to life” and may have committed war crimes. They state,

“The Obama administration claims its use of lethal force, including with drones, is “legal”, “ethical”, and “wise”. But Amnesty International is gravely concerned that the administration is killing people outside the bounds of human rights and the law. International law permits the use of lethal force in very restricted circumstances. But from the little information made available to the public, U.S. drone strike policy appears to allow extrajudicial executions in violation of the right to life, virtually anywhere in the world. Public outcry over the killer drone program is growing, leading to President Obama and Congress addressing the issue. Despite all the talk that new laws, rules or a “kill court” are needed, the solution is simple: the Obama administration must follow the law. Congress and the courts must hold them to it.
Urge the U.S. government to follow international law that restricts the use of lethal force.”

“There are real threats to the U.S. in the region,” said Naureen Shah, Amnesty’s advocacy adviser, “but it is hard to imagine that a 68-year-old grandmother or a 14-year-old boy are among them. Something clearly went wrong and the U.S. government needs to come clean.”

On March 15, Ben Emmerson, the UN Special Rapporteur on Human Rights and Counterterrorism, released a statement that categorically declared the CIA drone program a “violation of Pakistan’s sovereignty.” That statement followed three days of secret meetings with Pakistani officials, who told Emmerson that they had confirmed 400 civilian deaths in drone strikes since the program began in 2004.

In Pakistan, popular support for CIA drone strikes is virtually non-existent. Although public opinion in favor of drone strikes remains quite high in the United States, the targeted killing campaign has come under increasing fire of late from human rights organizations, Congress, and even former U.S. government officials. The New America Foundation’s National Security Studies Program is pleased to invite you to a conversation with Emmerson about his work investigating human rights violations in the “war on terror,” particularly in relation to the CIA drone program.

PARTICIPANTS include: Ben Emmerson, Special Rapporteur on the Promotion and Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms while Countering Terrorism, United Nations Commission on Human Rights. Peter Bergen, Director, National Security Studies Program, New America Foundation

This week, Human Rights Watch, which focused on six drone strikes in Yemen over the past four years, said the U.S. is undermining its own efforts against AL Qaeda with drone attacks.

The 102-page report, “‘Between a Drone and Al-Qaeda’: The Civilian Cost of US Targeted Killings in Yemen,”examines six US targeted killings in Yemen, one from 2009 and the rest from 2012-2013. Two of the attacks killed civilians indiscriminately in clear violation of the laws of war; the others may have targeted people who were not legitimate military objectives or caused disproportionate civilian deaths.

“The US says it is taking all possible precautions during targeted killings, but it has unlawfully killed civilians and struck questionable military targets in Yemen,” said Letta Tayler, senior terrorism and counterterrorism researcher at Human Rights Watch and the author of the report. “Yemenis told us that these strikes make them fear the US as much as they fear Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.”

Human Rights Watch released “‘Between a Drone and Al-Qaeda’” in a joint news conference on October 22, 2013, with Amnesty International, which issued its own report on US drone strikes in Pakistan.

Can Jesse Jackson now speak up for “Human Rights” after flipping on abortion?

Posted in Jesse Jackson with tags , , , , , , , , on July 16, 2013 by saynsumthn

The Rev. Jesse Jackson, founder and president of the Rainbow Push Coalition, wants the United Nations’ human rights watchdog brought into the debate over the shooting of Trayvon Martin.

Various parts of the U.N. human rights system have in the past weighed in on the Feb. 2012 shooting of the 17-year-old, criticizing Florida’s “stand your ground” law and, in one case, calling for “reparation for the victims.”

But Jackson is proposing an investigation by the U.N.’s top human rights apparatus, the Human Rights Council (HRC), a controversial body whose ranks include regimes with poor human rights records, including some of America’s most vocal critics.

But – Jackson has ignored the Human Rights of millions of the same children he USED to advocate for:

1970– In the 1970’s as a the head of the People United to Save Humanity, (PUSH), a Chicago based Civil Rights group, [Jesse] Jackson acknowledged that he personally abhorred abortion because he felt that only the intercession of his grandmother had prevented his mother from aborting him. He brought a pronounced religious opposition to abortion, telling a group of students, “I’m conceding that unless we put human life second only to God in our lives, we’re becoming a Sodom and Gomorrah… we have an obligation to take sex and life as a far more sacred event than we do now.

Not only Jackson, but also Militant Black spokesman from Black Nationalist groups and the Black Muslims denounced family planning and abortion as “black genocide”.

Leaders including Julius Lester, Dick Gregory, Daniel H. Watts, and H. Rap Brown called upon blacks to continue to reproduce in order to avoid race suicide.
(SOURCE: Intended Consequences: Birth Control, Abortion, and the Federal Government in Modern America By Donald T. Critchlow, Oxford Press, Published 1999; P. 142)

In 1971-Jesse Jackson, declared “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…” ( Source: Statements at public hearings of the Commission on Population Growth and the American Future as quoted in: Genocide? Birth Control and the Black American by Robert G. Weisbord, Greenwoor Press, 1972 ; P. 165)

Again in 1971 The Rev. Jesse Jackson, director of Operation Breadbasket, joined a demagogic chorus charging that government efforts to spread birth control information are equivalent to genocide. (BIRTH CONTROL ISN’T GENOCIDE Chicago Tribune Jun 28, 1971)

Then in 1973– Jesse Jackson said, “Abortion is genocide. Anything growing is living…If you got the thrill to set the baby in motion and you don’t have the will to protect it, you’re dishonest…You try to avoid reproducing sickness. You try to avoid reproducing deformities. But you don’t try to stop reproducing and procreating human life at its best. For who knows the cure for cancer won’t come out of some mind of some Black child?” (Jet Magazine Mar 22, 1973; p. 15)

And again in 1973-Jackson Chicago railed against birth control and abortion clinics in the black community and warns against “genocide“. …(Chicago Tribune – Apr 19, 1973)

In 1974– Jackson wrote a resolution in favor of a human life amendment. (The Milwaukee Sentinel – Jul 24, 1974)

Then in 1975– Jesse Jackson joined Billy Graham’s wife to push for a constitution amendment banning abortion. Jackson and Mrs. Graham were among the signers issued by the Christian Action Council, which read in part, “A deep concern for defenseless human life, including the unborn as well as the handicapped, is a consistent element of Christian moral teaching from the days of the Apostles onward…It is not limited to any particular Christian confession or denomination.” ( Christian’s join Bishops Ban on Abortion The Milwaukee Journal – Dec 1, 1975) and (Protestant leaders back abortion plan: The Telegraph-Herald – Nov 27, 1975)

In 1976– Jackson made this statement, “I think it is a significant issue, it reflects at one level, the moral decay and ambiguity in society, I think that Whenever Human Life ceases to represent the highest value in the human sphere, the society is in trouble….at this point what the court have ruled in abortion, the legal , it almost takes away from the young man the responsibility, and from the young woman the responsibility, of the act they have engaged in. And when people begin to use the excuses like “this girl is not ready yet” it means that the law of convenience becomes the highest law, and that is a very dangerous precedent morally, even before it becomes political!” (Jesse Jackson, Press Conference USA, February 2,1976)

Jesse Jackson calls abortion’s “Law of convenie…, posted with vodpod

By 1977– Jesse Jackson was endorsing the Pro-life Hyde Amendment. Jackson wrote, “I must oppose the use of federal funds for a policy of killing infants.” ” You don’t stop reproducing or procreating life at its best . For who knows that the cure for cancer won’t come out of the mind of some black child? ” He later called abortion – genocide. (The Southeast Missourian – Jul 14, 1988)

In 1977– Jesse Jackson wrote this, “Abortion is a vital issue. It does require immediate and wide attention because it really is a matter of life vs. death , because it is a matter of rights vs. morality.” ( The Milwaukee Sentinel – Jul 18, 1977 )

And this in 1977 Writing for the National Right to Life News, Jackson writes:
Another area that concerns me greatly, namely because I know how it has been used with regard to race, is the psycholinguistics involved in this whole issue of abortion. If something can be dehumanized through the rhetoric used to describe it, then the major battle has been won. So when American soldiers can drop bombs on Vietnam and melt the faces and hands of children into a hunk of rolling protoplasm and in their minds say they have not maimed or killed a fellow human being something terribly wrong and sick has gone on in that mind. That is why the Constitution called us three-fifths human and then whites further dehumanized us by calling us “niggers.” It was part of the dehumanizing process. The first step was to distort the image of us as human beings in. order to justify that which they wanted to do and not even feel like they had done anything wrong. Those advocates of taking. life prior to birth do not call it killing or murder; they call it abortion. They further never talk about aborting a baby because that would imply something human. Rather they talk about aborting the fetus. Fetus sounds less than human and therefore can be justified…What happens to the mind of a person, and the moral fabric of a nation, that accepts the aborting of the life of a baby without a pang of conscience? What kind of a person, and what kind of a society will we have 20 years hence if life can be taken so casually?” (How we respect life is the over-riding moral issue:Right to Life News, January 1977)

Then in 1978 Jesse Jackson wrote, “The pro-abortion forces say that the social conditions awaiting so many of the unborn are not good enough to live in. It is a legitimate concern, but in finding an answer in abortion they are overstepping their rights. In denying life because of social conditions , they are forcing their cynicism on others.”
( Abortion and Life, by Jesse Jackson Youngstown Vindicator – Jan 22, 1978)

By 1978– Rev. Jesse Jackson national director of Operation PUSH in Chicago, was among the scheduled speakers for the fifth annual March for Life, an anti-abortion rally on the Capitol steps. ( Thousand rally at Capitol in March for Life Observer-Reporter – Jan 24, 1978 )

In 1979 Jesse Jackson well known civil rights activist and president of People United to Save Humanity said, “Politicians argue for abortion largely because they do not want to spend the necessary money to feed, clothe and educate more people. Here arguments for convenience and economic savings take precedence over arguments for human value and human life…In my mind serious moral questions between $300.00 and $1000.00 to have abortion, but will not pay $30.00 for a hot school lunch for the already born children of these same mothers.” ( Anti-abortionists have rights: The Michigan Daily – Sep 7, 1979)

BY the 1980– Jesse Jackson, prominent black civil rights activist, said that the idea that life is private and that one may do with it as one wishes ‘was the premise of slavery. You could not protest the existence or treatment of slaves on the plantation because that was private and therefore outside your right to be concerned.’ (Abortions no answer to society’s problems: The Phoenix – Aug 7, 1980)

Then at the time he wanted to run for President, Jesse Jackson FLIPPED on protecting Human Life from abortion:

1984: In 1984, during his bid for President, Jackson was asked: What level of aid should the government provide for abortion?
Answer, “I choose to put my emphasis on sex education and self discipline before the fact. I would never encourage abortion, except under medically extenuating circumstances. On eth other hand I do support freedom of choice…” He later supports birth control. Bangor Daily News – May 18, 1984

1984– Jackson supports Medicaid funding of abortions for low-income women .(Morning Call – Apr 8, 1984)

1988 Jesse Jackson is the only remaining US presidential candidate to openly support abortion as a woman’s choice (Toronto Star – Jul 4, 1988)

1988 As a Presidential candidate in 1984 and 1988 Jackson has consistently said that women must have the right to choose whether to have an abortion. In an issues brief, Jackson advocates government medicaid funding of abortions for poor women. But in the 1970‘s and early 1980’s- Jackson who is a Baptist minister- was taking a much different approach. In 1977, he sent an open letter to Congress urging support for an amendment by Rep. Henry Hyde R.-Ill. banning federal funding of abortions. ” As a matter of conscience, I must oppose the use of federal funds for a policy of killing infants,” Jackson wrote. In prepared remarks before an anti-abortion rally in Washington DC, in 1978, Jackson said “allowing abortions may leave us with a hell right here on earth.” As late as May 1982, in an interview with Our Sunday Visitor , a national Catholic Weekly, Jackson said legalized abortions symbolized, ” a definite drift to Sodom and Gommorah in our culture. All this to me is part of a great suicidal process.” When asked to reconcile his positions on abortion Jackson has said that it would not be proper for him as president to impose his religious views on the country.

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.”

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.

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)

Elena Gorolová welcomes Czech Govt review of compensation for forcibly sterilized women
Prague, 21.2.2012 18:44, (ROMEA)

The recommendation by the Czech Government Human Rights Council that the cabinet compensate women who have been wrongfully sterilized has been welcomed Elena Gorolová, a survivor of these practices. She is the spokesperson for the Group of Women Harmed by Forced Sterilization, which came together under the non-governmental association Vzájemné soužití (Life Together) in Ostrava.

To this day, Gorolová has a bitter memory of the critical moment in the delivery room when health care workers gave her a paper to sign. “No one told me what it meant, I was young,” says Gorolová. Doctors sterilized her in 1990 at the age of 21.

The doctors decided to sterilize her in the course of her second Cesarean delivery. Two or more Cesarean deliveries was the most frequent reason given for the sterilizations, as were a birthing woman’s diseased heart or lungs.

However, the women harmed by these sterilizations say the problem is that they never gave their informed consent to the surgery. Gorolová says she was never given any information about sterilization, not even when she visited the maternity ward for checkups during her high-risk pregnancy.

Gorolová is one of 87 women who sent complaints of being forcibly sterilized to the Czech Public Defender of Rights (the ombudsman). In December 2005, in his Final Statement on this issue, the ombudsman accepted that sterilizations performed on Romani women during the communist era had been of a eugenic nature. Both his report and cases litigated by the League of Human Rights now show that illegal sterilizations have continued up until today.

Elena Gorolová is one of the “post-November 1989” cases. Her Group, which brings the women who suffered this treatment together, was not founded several years ago with the vision of suing for money, but to create a platform for sharing their unpleasant experiences and for those who felt the need to do something to change such practices in maternity wards.
“We have already succeeded in achieving many things, for example, that the Government expressed regret for the forced sterilizations in 2009. I attended the recent session of the Government Human Rights Council as a guest, and I am really glad the Government will be reviewing this problem once more,” says Gorolová, who sees the greatest omission in the area of preventing these abuses. She says work with young Romani girls is necessary to make sure they are informed of their options.

Gorolová recalled her work with a Vzájemné soužití project which once had that aim, but has now ended: “We traveled to schools to hold discussions and meetings with young women. The meetings were attended by experts, gynecologists, hospital personnel. The problem is that women do not know, for example, that they do not have to undergo sterilization, not even after a second Cesarean delivery. I had no inkling of these matters before, nor do many other women. When the time comes, they are unable to make a decision on the basis of knowing all the options. I think that thanks to the ombudsman and the discussion of forced sterilizations that has been ongoing for several years now, the situation in maternity wards has been changing.”

“I have had the opportunity to speak with many doctors, particularly in the Moravian-Silesian Region. They all expressed similar opinions, they believe the women are not well-informed. Maybe once the Government reviews sterilization once again it will help for this matter to be spoken of once more and for doctors to give more information to their patients,” Gorolová hopes.

The Czech Government Human Rights Council is recommending the cabinet compensate women who were wrongfully sterilized between 1972 – 1991 and said compensation should be provided irrespective of statutes of limitations. Czech Government Human Rights Commissioner Monika Šimůnková informed the Czech Press Agency of the recommendations, which she says the Government should discuss in the coming months. A draft “compensation mechanism” should be on the table by the end of 2013. Czech daily Lidové noviny has reported that most cabinet ministers support compensation.

According to the Council’s recommendation, all women who have ever been wrongfully sterilized should be compensated. Even women who were entitled to be rewarded monetarily for undergoing sterilization according to previously applicable regulations will be considered eligible. Until 1991, a decree was in effect that made it possible to pay women CZK 10 000 for terminating their fertility. The ombudsman’s Final Statement reported that social workers convinced Romani women not to have more children by offering them the payment.

The planned compensation would also be offered to women who have been unable to sue over what happened to them because of statutes of limitations.

The cabinet reviewed the forced sterilization of women last week when it discussed the concluding recommendations of the UN Committee for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. That body has recommended the Czech Republic show its good will by compensating Romani women who were coercively or forcibly sterilized. “This mutilation was performed in state institutions, so the state is obliged to pay compensation,” Czech Foreign Minister and Deputy Prime Minister Karel Schwarzenberg (TOP 09) told LN.
Other ministers have also expressed agreement with that position. However, they say that whether the proposal is approved by the Government will depend on the precise form of the compensation system. “The procedure for proving that the sterilization was against the will of the woman requesting compensation must be clearly established,” Czech Defense Minister Alexandr Vondra (ODS) told the daily. “I support compensation, but there is a need to discuss the precise amount on the basis of arguments made by experts,” Czech Labor Minister Jaromír Drábek (TOP 09) told LN.

Šimůnková said she proposed to the cabinet that it give ministries various tasks with respect to the compensation. The Czech Justice Ministry is to develop an analysis to review existing statutes of limitations. The Czech Finance, Health and Labor Ministers, together with the Human Rights Commissioner, would have until the end of next year to propose how the compensation is to be undertaken. The head of the Health Ministry would have until the end of this June to make sure all medical records for female sterilization from 1971 are preserved. By the end of this September, the ministry would also develop instructions as to how doctors are to proceed with sterilizations in future.

UN head calls for more respect for gay, transgender ‘rights’

Posted in homosexuality, United Nations with tags , , , , , , on December 15, 2010 by saynsumthn

NEW YORK, December 14, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Speaking on the 62nd anniversary of the U.N.’s adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights on Friday, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called for an end to laws criminalizing homosexuality and demanded greater respect for homosexual and “transgender” “rights.”

‘‘Today, many nations have modern constitutions that guarantee essential rights and liberties. And yet, homosexuality is considered a crime in more than 70 countries,’’ the UN chief said. ‘‘That is not right.’‘

The UDHR, he said, ‘‘is not called the ‘partial’ declaration of human rights. It is not the ‘sometimes’ declaration of human rights. It is the universal declaration, guaranteeing all human beings their basic human rights – without exception.’‘

The UN secretary’s statement was attacked by Austin Ruse, president of the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute (C-FAM), who told LifeSiteNews that Moon is “reading the homosexual agenda into the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.” The UDHR, he said, covers homosexuals as much as anybody else, but “it does not include the homosexual agenda.”

“There’s a solid of block of at least 60 countries in the UN general assembly who will not allow this to happen,” he added.

Moon spoke at a major gathering organized at the UN headquarters by homosexual activists.

U.S. Ambassador to the UN Susan Rice expressed outrage over a recent vote at a General Assembly committee that excluded mention of “sexual orientation” from a condemnation of the extrajudicial killing of vulnerable people worldwide.

Rice promised that the United States will sponsor an amendment to the resolution. ‘‘We’re going to stand firm on this basic principle,’’ she said.

They were joined also by Archbishop Desmond Tutu, who spoke by teleconference. The Anglican prelate compared the homosexual effort to the fight against apartheid in South Africa.

Ruse said, however, that American blacks should find Tutu’s comparison “deeply offensive because there’s a vast difference between something that is in-born like race and something that is caused by psychological factors or trauma.”

The comparison between race and “sexual orientation,” he said, is “deeply offensive” to nearly half the U.N. General Assembly, if not more.

While he acknowledged that opposition to homosexuality goes too far in certain parts of the world, Ruse pointed out that homosexuals in North America and Europe are “among the richest, most accomplished, most lauded people in our society.”

“To say that they are compared to the people that have suffered under apartheid is ridiculous,” he said.

“What this is really all about is mainstreaming the homosexual agenda,” he continued. “It is not simply about ending capital punishment and the criminalization of homosexuality. … It’s about putting the homosexual agenda on par, and actually above, freedom of religion.”
