Planned Parenthood leaders saw abortion for eugenics reasons according to Justice Clarence Thomas

Part Two of Two.

Abortion for eugenics reasons was advocated by Planned Parenthood leaders such as Alan F Guttmacher according to a multi-page summary written by Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas in the case Box v. Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky Inc. In part one, we detailed how Justice Thomas linked eugenics ideology to Planned Parenthood’s founder Margaret Sanger. Here we will include additional statements from the Justice.

In his opinion, Thomas wrote a lengthy history of eugenics and touched upon one of Margaret Sanger’s notorious directors, Lothrop Stoddard. Thomas wrote, “[…E]ugenicist Lothrop Stoddard argued that the “prodigious birth-rate” of the nonwhite races was bringing the world to a racial tipping point…Stoddard feared that without “artificial barriers,” the races “will increasingly mingle, and the inevitable result will be the supplanting or absorption of the higher by the lower types….Eugenic arguments like these helped precipitate the Immigration Act of 1924, which significantly reduced immigration from outside of Western and Northern Europe….”

Read more about Stoddard’s views at Live Action News (here).

Thomas also implicated former PP president and eugenics VP, Alan F Guttmacher, writing, “Many eugenicists therefore supported legalizing abortion” adding how “abortion advocates—including future Planned Parenthood President Alan Guttmacher— endorsed the use of abortion for eugenic reasons…Even after World War II, future Planned Parenthood President Alan Guttmacher and other abortion advocates endorsed abortion for eugenic reasons and promoted it as a means of controlling the population and improving its quality…”

Thomas went on to address PP leaders on eugenics, “One journal declared that “abortion is the one mode of population limitation which has demonstrated the speedy impact which it can make upon a national problem.” …Planned Parenthood’s leaders echoed these themes. When exulting over “‘fantastic . . . progress’” in expanding abortion, for example, Guttmacher stated that “‘the realization of the population problem has been responsible’ for the change in attitudes. ‘We’re now concerned more with the quality of population than the quantity.’”

Live Action News has documented how Guttmacher was instrumental in the decriminalization of abortion and then pushed PP into committing abortions.  The fact is that Guttmacher’s ideas of forced or compulsory population control measures were in lock-step with Planned Parenthood’s founder Margaret Sanger. After all, they were both members of the very racist American Eugenics Society, with Guttmacher serving as the group’s vice-president. As Live Action News has documented in the past, Sanger made sure that Planned Parenthood was knee deep in eugenics.

The Justice, a Black man himself, spoke about the suspicion that Blacks had about “family planning” and abortion becoming a tool of Black genocide, mirroring examples pointed out previously by Live Action News:

“Avoiding the word “eugenics” did not assuage everyone’s fears. Some black groups saw “‘family planning’ as a euphemism for race genocide” and believed that “black people [were] taking the brunt of the ‘planning’” under Planned Parenthood’s “ghetto approach” to distributing its services,” the Justice wrote.

Thomas pointed out how eugenicsts were cited in the Roe v. Wade case, writing, “Similarly, legal scholar Glanville Williams wrote that he was open to the possibility of eugenic infanticide, at least in some situations, explaining that “an eugenic killing by a mother, exactly paralleled by the bitch that kills her misshapen puppies, cannot confidently be pronounced immoral.” …The Court cited Williams’ book for a different proposition in Roe v. Wade.”

Live Action President, Lila Rose pointed out that Live Action has seen first hand how the abortion industry targets vulnerable and minority demographics as evidence in the undercover call below:

 

“I applaud Clarence Thomas’ assertion that ‘Given the potential for abortion to become a tool of eugenic manipulation, the [c]ourt will soon need to confront the constitutionality of laws like Indiana’s…. Enshrining the constitutional right to an abortion based solely on the race, sex, or disability of an unborn child, as Planned Parenthood advocates, would constitutionalize the views of the 20th Century eugenics movement.’ Rose stated.

Although Thomas concurred with the Court’s decision to not rule on the discrimination portion of the case at this time, he recognized that this issue of eugenics must be addressed by the Court, writing, “Given the potential for abortion to become a tool of eugenic manipulation, the Court will soon need to confront the constitutionality of laws like Indiana’s…Although the Court declines to wade into these issues today, we cannot avoid them forever. Having created the constitutional right to an abortion, this Court is dutybound to address its scope.”

For the past several years, Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky has been losing patients and decreasing its Pap test services, while the organization’s abortion numbers and government funding have remained relatively stable. This remains consistent with a national trend showing Planned Parenthood’s services in areas such as contraception, Pap tests, cancer screenings, and breast exams have all decreased while government funding and abortions continue to rise.

Proponents of defunding Planned Parenthood argue that the half a billion dollars the abortion corporation receives each year should be directed towards Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs), which offer more services. While Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky’s website (PPINK) states that they operate 17 centers in Indiana, there are 67 rural health clinics in Indiana and 26 Federally Qualified Health Centers in Indiana which provide services at 172 sites in the state, according to the Rural Health Info Hub.

 

Patients Decreasing

In 2013, Planned Parenthood of Indiana merged with Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky (PPINK). That year, Planned Parenthood of Indiana saw 67,916 patients, a decrease of almost 31 percent from 2007 when it served 97,897 patients.

By 2015, the affiliate, which runs centers in two states (Kentucky and Indiana), saw only 55,949 clients and reported that government dollars made up 12 percent of its revenue, totaling  $1,824,912.

In 2016, the numbers again dropped, with PPINK reporting a total of 51,127 clients in Indiana and Kentucky combined –which amounts to fewer patients than its Indiana centers alone reported for 2013.

In contrast, federal health centers listed on the Health Resources Services Administration’s website (HRSA) serve a wider array of health services and served 444,450 Indiana patients in 2015 alone (2016 data has not been published.)

Abortions

Abortions committed by Indiana Planned Parenthood centers have remained relatively steady while other services have dropped substantially.

In 2007, Planned Parenthood of Indiana committed 5,160 abortions. Six years later (in 2013), the affiliate reported a slight dip in these numbers, committing 4,571 abortions.

By 2016, a combined total of 5,397 for both Indiana and Kentucky was reported by PPINK, while government grants to the affiliate totaled $1,675,442.

Pap Tests

In 2007, Planned Parenthood of Indiana reported a total of 50,128 Pap tests in its annual report. By 2010 — just three years later –this number was cut nearly in half to 26,559.

A substantial decrease was seen again in 2013 when the Indiana affiliate reported only 7,124 Pap tests, a drop of almost 86 percent in just three years.

By 2016, Pap test numbers plunged again, to a combined total of 5,258 reported for Indiana and Kentucky.

In contrast, according to HRSA’s website, Indiana federal health centers reported that 54.4 percent of their patients were cervical cancer screenings (Pap tests) — approximately 240,000 patients.

Contraception Care

Abortion advocates are always touting the importance of contraception, claiming that if Planned Parenthood is defunded, federal health centers will not be able to absorb the influx. However, an analysis by Planned Parenthood’s former “special affiliate,” the Guttmacher Institute, reveals that this may not be the case at all.

Data for both Indiana and Kentucky shows that women do not need to go to an abortion chain to access contraception.

In 2015, 17 out of 44 counties in Indiana which offer publicly funded contraception had at least one Planned Parenthood center, while 34 counties had at least one FQHC site that provided contraception services. Guttmacher reports that there were no Planned Parenthood centers located in 27 counties. In addition, Planned Parenthood served fewer contraception clients than FQHC sites in 3 of the 17 counties that had Planned Parenthood facilities.

Kentucky

In 2015, two out of 120 counties in Kentucky offering publicly funded contraception had at least one Planned Parenthood center, while 46 counties had at least one FQHC site that provided contraception services. This means that there were no Planned Parenthood facilities located in 118 counties. In addition, Planned Parenthood served fewer contraception clients than FQHC sites in all the counties where there were Planned Parenthood facilities. Less than one percent (2 out of 211) of publicly funded family planning centers in Kentucky were Planned Parenthood centers, which served just 5 percent of contraception clients. FQHC sites served 31 percent.

While Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky operates just two centers in Kentucky, the Rural Health Info Hub shows that there are 190 Rural Health Clinics in Kentucky and 23 Federally Qualified Health Centers, providing services at 211 sites in the state.

Planned Parenthood’s website shows they saw 3,622 patients in Kentucky in 2016 — a decrease of 32 percent from 2015, when the organization served 5,358 patients. In contrast, federal health centers saw 378,258 Kentucky patients in 2015.

In Kentucky, Planned Parenthood currently shows a total of 2,973 cancer screenings, yet federal health centers reported cervical cancer screenings on 56.4 percent of the 378,000 patients they saw in 2015 — 213,192 patients.

Planned Parenthood’s allies continue to deceive the public into believing that the $540 million dollars the taxpayer was forced to send to the abortion corporation is for “health care” — but nothing could be further from the truth.  Congress must move to immediately defund Planned Parenthood, which commits 35 percent of abortions nationally, ending the lives of 900 preborn children each day in America.

The Federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act was signed into law in 1993 by Democrat president Bill Clinton and supported by many Democrats including Chuck Schumer and Al Gore who called it important legislation.

According to the Washington Times, “So far the Religious Freedom Restoration Act has never worked as a defense for Christian bakers embroiled in lawsuits over gay weddings, but for a handful of Apache, Muslim and Sikh plaintiffs, it’s been a godsend.”

Ronte L LathamA 20-year-old Indiana man has been sentenced to a year in prison, after he impregnated a 13 year old girl who was later taken for an abortion.

According to reports, the girl met Latham while visiting a park.

The victim told police Latham did not ask the teen’s age before or during sex that took place at his home, which, according to court records began in December of 2012.

Ronte L Latham COurt

The girl became pregnant and had an abortion in February 2013. Latham admitted to having sex with the child but claimed he was unaware that she had the abortion.

Latham, pleaded guilty in September to one Class C felony charge of child molesting. In addition to the jail time, he was given three years on probation and ordered to pay $600 in restitution.

According to Life News, Allen County Right to Life was aware of this 13-year-old girl having an abortion (non-identifying information only on her) and the abortionist not reporting it. The pro-life group filed hundreds of complaints with the Indiana State Attorney General’s Office, against abortion doctor Ulrich Klopfer, alleging sloppy record keeping at his abortion clinic.

Apparently, Klopfer was not reporting abortions he performed on under age girls. The Indiana Attorney General’s office filed complaints filed against Klopfer and in September asked the state’s medical board to review the license of Klopfer and three of his associates Dr. Kathleen Glover, Dr. Resad Pasic, and Dr. Raymond Robinson, for failing to report.

At the time those charges were filed, Klopfer faced criminal misdemeanor charges of failing to properly report abortions on a 13-year-olds in Gary and South Bend.

Recently, a national pro-life group compiled 60 criminal case summaries showing that abortion and Planned Parenthood centers fail to report abortions on minor children. That report, published by Life Dynamics in Denton, Texas, can be read here.

The Indiana Attorney General’s office has announced that it has filed administrative complaints against four abortionists in three counties for record keeping violations. The case is based on complaints filed by Indiana Right to Life, which obtained copies of Termination of Pregnancy reports that must be filed with the state’s Department of Health. The group discovered that not only were abortionists Ulrich Klopfer, Resad Pasic, Kathleen Glover and Raymond Robinson omitting important information from the forms, but Klopfer was not reporting suspected child sexual abuse on underage girls as young as 13.

Complaint filed against Democrat after offensive abortion tweet

Council_HDavis A South Bend Democrat is in hot water after he tweeted a suggestion that Republicans be aborted.

The tweet from Democrat Common Council member Henry Davis Jr. was offensive enough directed at Republicans but it also appeared to target the mentally handicapped.

The tweet stated, “Maybe if they could have discovered unborn babies with shortage of brain cells you republicans could have been aborted.”

SouthBendCouncilmanHenryDavisJrTweet-ABC57

A complaint has been filed against Common Council member Henry Davis Jr. by Rhonda Richards, a Republican resident of the city.

Speaking to the South Bend Tribune Richards described the offending tweet as “just too much.”

The fact that he believes people should be aborted just because they may not have the same brain function as someone else; the fact he wants people aborted at all; the fact he’s so afraid of his potential opponents he would want them aborted before they’re even born – the whole concept of it is just too over-the-top to be tolerated,” Richards said.

The tweet, which originated with another user, originally appeared on Davis Jr.’s Twitter page , a screen grab provided by the county GOP shows, but was later taken down, reports the paper.

“We are disappointed in Henry’s decision to use his official Twitter account to convey such a hateful and twisted message,” GOP Chair Deb Fleming said at the time. “I guess when it comes to Republicans equality and tolerance don’t matter.”

Davis responded by telling the Tribune that his social media accounts are personal and not associated with his duties as a councilman. “That is my Twitter,” he said. “You can’t qualify it as being wrong or right because there are no laws.”
