November 27, 2012 (HLIWorldWatch.org) – Supporters of the Culture of Death tend to lack foresight, and do not seem to possess even a rudimentary understanding of human nature. These defects inevitably lead to many cases of the “law of unintended consequences.”1

One good example of this principle is the ongoing effort by population control groups to flood Africa with condoms in an attempt to stem the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Condom manufacturers refuse to publicize their high failure rate, however, and so African nations where more condoms are used have much higher rates of HIV/AIDS than those nations whose people widely reject their use.2

Another example of this lack of foresight is the claim that, when the State pays for a poor woman’s abortion, it saves a lot of money by avoiding the costs of a delivery and another child added to the welfare system. In fact, this is one of the most persuasive arguments offered by pro abortionists in support of Medicaid funding of abortion.

In support of this belief, pro-abortionists grossly exaggerate the costs incurred by a child on welfare. They began using this tactic in their battle against the Hyde Amendment, which banned most federal funding of abortion. Senator Charles H. Percy (R Ill.) testified, “If we can avoid a $100,000 cost for a $200 [abortion] investment ― and make a humanitarian investment at the same time ― what sense does it make to say, `We cannot afford $200 for this expenditure [for an abortion]?’”3

Leaders of the pro-abortion movement sometimes accidentally reveal the naked racism behind these comments. Notorious California abortionist Edward Allred said, “When a sullen Black woman of 17 or 18 can decide to have a baby and get welfare and food stamps and become a burden to all of us, it’s time to stop. In parts of South Los Angeles, having babies for welfare is the only industry these people have.”4

Of course none of this is new, and abortion is not the only weapon targeting poor women in the United States in the name of cost-cutting. Donald Kimelman of the Philadelphia Inquirer revealed the true goal of our domestic population controllers in a 1990 article ominously entitled “Poverty and Norplant: Can Contraception Reduce the Underclass?” He wrote:

As we read these two stories [about Norplant and Black poverty], we asked ourselves: Dare we mention them in the same breath? To do so might be considered deplorably insensitive, perhaps raising the specter of eugenics. But it would be worse to avoid drawing the logical conclusion that foolproof contraception could be invaluable in breaking the cycle of inner city poverty ― one of America’s greatest challenges.

Kimelman went on to suggest that welfare mothers could be implanted with Norplant for free and perhaps receive increased welfare benefits as a reward.5 And speaking of unintended consequences, Norplant was later banned by the FDA for the harm it caused women, resulting in a massive class action lawsuit against Norplant’s producer.
It seems reasonable to ask why, if Kimelman was truly concerned about poverty in general, did he not also recommend the use of Norplant for poor White women?

Others asked this same question. Vanessa Williams, president of the Philadelphia chapter of the National Association of Black Journalists, called Kimelman’s article, “A tacit endorsement of slow genocide.”6 Four days after Kimelman’s article, Inquirer columnist Steve Lopez sarcastically suggested that contraception would not reduce the underclass quite as fast as “just shooting them.” The Inquirer quickly apologized for Kimelman’s article after a wave of complaints. But the racist and eugenicist thinking of many of those who want to “help” poor women had been exposed once again.

Abortion As Human Culling

Kimelman was not the only journalist to step on his tongue after the introduction of Norplant. Anthony Bouza, former Minneapolis Police Chief and columnist for the Minneapolis Star Tribune, wrote an editorial with the oxymoronic title “A Mother’s Day Wish: Make Abortion Available to All Women.”

He described the “at risk” population as “poor, Black and Indian,” and said that their offspring are “marked for failure.” He went on to say:

When abortions are illegal, poor women deliver and keep their babies. Then they plunk them in front of a TV set, watch them get abused and conditioned to violence by parades of males, and expose them to all the factors the criminologists describe as the precursors to a life of crime … Making abortions freely available to the impoverished young women who produce our criminals is very likely the most important crime prevention measure adopted in this country in the last 25 years.7

If Bouza’s allegation is true ― that abortion is our “most important crime prevention measure” ― why are 7.2 million adults in prison or on parole or probation, 3.1 percent of all adults in the entire population?8 This is a fourfold increase since the Roe v. Wade decision in 1973, when only 0.8 percent of all adults in the United States were subject to the criminal justice system. If abortion is so effective at fighting crime, why does the United States possess the dubious distinction of having the largest percentage of its population imprisoned among all the countries of the world, including the former Soviet Union, Cuba, and South Africa?

Don’t expect answers to these questions from abortion advocates ― especially pro abortion journalists. They have a very big axe to grind, and nobody had better bother them with the facts.

Taking the Long View

Obviously, an abortion does indeed cost much less than delivery and care for a baby, but as always, the pro-abortion view is extremely short-sighted and completely neglects the future benefits to society provided by a child over his or her lifetime.

To begin with, pro-abortionists invariably assume that welfare children will be “on the dole” until they are eighteen. However, less than five percent of all children born into welfare families will remain on welfare until they are adults. In fact, the average period of welfare dependency for a child is just two years.9

A first-trimester Medicaid abortion currently costs about $515.10 By comparison, the cost of all kinds of public assistance for a child, including prenatal care, delivery and postnatal care, and two years of all types of public assistance for the child is about $22,300.11 So, at first glance, abortion seems to be a very good financial deal indeed for the long-suffering taxpayer.

But hold it ― not so fast. What about the future benefits that a child generates during his or her lifetime?

The Federal, state and local taxes paid by a child and his or her employers during 30 years in the work force amount to about $955,900.12

Pro-abortionists consider only the short-term benefits to the State, which is the difference between the cost of caring for a child and the cost of an abortion, which is ($22,300 – $515), or $21,785; but the long-term benefit to the State of paying for the child’s delivery and care is ($955,900 – $22,300), or $933,600. In other words, the State pays on average $22,300 and gets $955,900 back, a benefit-cost ratio of 43.8 dollars received for every one dollar spent, which is a very good deal indeed.

But this is not the only part of the equation. We must also consider that each person continuously generates wealth during his working career and consumes goods and services that help support the livelihoods of many other people. At current levels, this sum amounts to an average of about $2,764,000 per person.13

Therefore, we see that every person aborted costs society at large a total of about $3,720,000. So, for every single dollar spent on a Medicaid-funded abortion, society loses ($3,720,000/$515) = more than $7,200.

Does anyone other than hardcore abortion advocates think that this is a fiscally sensible or responsible position to take?.

1 This term originated when the occupying British government became concerned about the proliferation of venomous cobras in Indian urban areas. The government offered a reward for every dead snake brought in, and people began breeding the cobras for extra income. When the British learned of this practice, they discontinued the reward. The breeders then released their thousands of cobras, resulting in the problem being much worse than it was before.

Vintage vid “I am somebody”, from a once Pro-Life Jesse Jackson

Posted in Jesse Jackson with tags , , , , , , , , , on January 9, 2012 by saynsumthn

H/T

“I Am Somebody,” which Jackson elsewhere called the Black National Anthem, was written in the 1950s by Rev. William Borders, Sr. Here he is in 1971, when Rev. Jesse Jackson recited the powerful poem, “I Am Somebody” on the children’s television show, Sesame Street.

It is particularly poignant that in 1971 Jackson was adamantly pro-life, and here he was on Sesame Street teaching little children that they may be small, and their faces and hair my be different, but they were still to be “respected, protected, never rejected.”

“I am Somebody! I am Somebody! I may be poor, But I am Somebody. I may be young, But I am Somebody. I may be on welfare, But I am Somebody. I may be small, But I am Somebody. I may have made mistakes, But I am Somebody. My clothes are different, My face is different, My hair is different, But I am Somebody. I am Black, Brown, or White. I speak a different language But I must be respected, protected, never rejected. I am God’s child!” — Reverend Jesse Jackson recited this poem on Sesame Street in 1971. Yasmin Brown was featured in this episode.

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.

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)

1971-Jesse Jackson, “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)

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

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)

1973– Chicago black leader, rails against birth control and abortion clinics in the black community and warns against “genocide“. …(Chicago Tribune – Apr 19, 1973)

1974– Pro-lifers say that a resolution in favor of a human life amendment written by Jesse Jackson would be read at their meeting. (The Milwaukee Sentinel – Jul 24, 1974)

1975– Jesse Jackson joins Billy Graham’s wife 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)

1977– Endorsing the 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)

1977– Jesse Jackson writes, “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 )

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)

1978 Jesse Jackson writes, “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)

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. But Miss Nellie Grey said he was Ill and unable to attend. ( Thousand rally at Capitol in March for Life Observer-Reporter – Jan 24, 1978 )

1979 Jesse Jackson well known civil rights activist and president of People United to Save Humanity said recently, “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)

1980– Jesse Jackson , prominent black civil rights activist , says 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)

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.

Star Parker addresses Liberal Eugenics mindset that “blacks must control their birth”

Star Parker addresses liberal mindset that “bla…, posted with vodpod

Lest you forget how the targeting of blacks was used by the eugenics crowds…here is news going on right now in North Carolina. Victims of the North Carolina Eugenics Movement are now telling how they were the targets of Black Population Control :

Lela Mae Moore Dunston lives in Raleigh, just a few miles away from where a board of men and women she’d never met voted to have her sterilized in March of 1963. She was 13, living with her mother in Wilmington, and pregnant with her first child. It would be the only child the state would allow her to have.

Dunston, who was termed “mildly retarded” as the justification for sterilization, says she is not mentally handicapped and is one of a growing number of sterilization victims demanding that the state compensate them. Their mental evaluations were often based on flawed intelligence testing. Others were sterilized for reasons including epilepsy, blindness or rumors of promiscuity.

Many of these victims have read the petitions for sterilizations that social workers wrote about them. Often, they contain more racism and class prejudice than hard facts. The petition to sterilize Dunston says that she and her mother “live in an area that has a low socio-economic level.” Dunston is described as “a rather alert little Negro girl” who “wore a very ragged sweater and her hair literally stood on end all over her head.”

That was “a bunch of baloney,” Dunston said.

In the early 1960s, as Gov. Terry Sanford was leading North Carolina through integration, the sterilization program, which operated beneath the radar, began targeting black women of modest means. Sometimes, the petitions contained outright lies, as in this line from Dunston’s: “Both the mother and Lela Mae understand that sterilization will result in Lela Mae not being able to reproduce and both seem happy with this.”

Dunston said she didn’t know what the operation was about. “I was only 13,” Dunston said. “Thirteen years old you don’t know nothing about this kind of mess. You’re a child yourself.”

Here is a sample of what the Eugenics Victims have said:

Elaine Riddick:I have to get out what the state of North Carolina did to me. I am not feeble minded. I’ve never been feeble minded. They slandered me. They ridiculed and harassed me. They cut me open like I was a hog, My body was too young for what they did to me. I had to have a child at the age of 14. When I had my son, at the same time they took my child in cesarean and then did that to me. What do you think I’m worth? … I’ve never had nobody to take care of me. I’ve had to do this all by myself. I never had anyone give me anything. I had to pick my own self up…What am I worth? The kids I didn’t have. Couldn’t have. What are they worth?”

Tony Riddick added, “You harmed my mother and killed her womb . When u look forward – It’s genocide – premeditated murder – you deserve to be punished….This is sinister. I know I don’t have the power to bring justice myself….We say we are a nation that’s concerned and compassionate and these victims have not been compensated yet. For my mother, it’s been 43 years…God will hold you accountable for what you have done to my mom.”

LeLa Dunston (victim)
“I can’t have no babies…They told me to sign papers. I didn’t sign papers. That was not my signature on these papers…I need a reward or something…some kind of compensation for all they put me through. I wanted more children. I wouldn’t have minded having a daughter. Maybe two, maybe three.”

Australia Clay (victim’s family member)
“Every victim that went through any of this victimization was a guinea pig. A science guinea pig. It was bogus medicine. Bogus science…This is North Carolina’s holocaust. We need a wall. We need a library. My mother needs her name and picture in a library room.”

Melissa Hyatt (victim’s loved one)
“Nobody explained what the surgery was for, at least to him.”

Karen Beck (victim’s family member)
“I’m sure the surgeons that wielded the knives against their small bodies believed they were doing the right thing. Indeed, how could any of them be wrong?”

Deborah Chesson (victim’s family member)
“The eugenics board has deemed my mother nothing. To me, she is everything….You tore families apart. You hurt people. There’s no compensation that can put that back.”

After years of telling and re-telling her story, Sterilization victim, Elaine Riddick is pleading with the state of North Carolina to take responsibility for what they did to her through their Eugenics Programs.

“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.”

Listen to what the State of North Carolina’s Eugenic Board (Funded by Margaret Sanger supporter- Clarence Gamble more below) did to this “African American woman” : Elaine Riddick

( this clip below from the powerful documentary on eugenics and black genocide called: Maafa21 )

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”.

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Planned Parenthood founder, Margaret Sanger, was a member in good standing with the racist American Eugenics Society. Sanger had board 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 Read it here http://library.lifedynamics.com//Autobiography/Chapter%2029.pdf)

Margaret Sanger helped Bermuda set up birth control clinics when they discovered there was a huge increase in the Negro Population – ( Times Daily – Jun 16, 1937) here

Margaret Sanger concerned that the Well-to-do is using Birth Control while the “feeble minded” are not. She urges that birth control gets legalized so that these “unskilled” , “sub-normal” and “feeble minded” will not out-number the “intellectuals” (The Pittsburgh Press – Dec 30, 1928) Here

In 1962, Vice President of the American Eugenics Society at the time, Dr. Alan Guttmacher wants abortion laws patterned after Sweden and other nations. One reason they list to allow abortions is :EUGENIC ! Also- Guttmacher at this point says he does NOT BELIEVE that abortion should be left up to the patient or their doctor, rather it should be up to “Special Board” to approve the abortion. (Eugenic Board, perhaps?) ( The Miami News – Aug 12, 1962) Read Here ( Alan Guttmacher is a former Vice President of The American Eugenics Society and a Former President of Planned Parenthood)

NEVER NEVER FORGET WHAT THESE EUGENICS PEOPLE DID:

Tom Metzger, the former Klan leader promotes the pushing of abortion clinics in Black Neighborhoods. From Metzger: “…abortion and birth control should be promoted as a powerful weapon, in the limitation of non-White birth. “


If a White Supremacists Klan leader knows that abortion is Black Genocide it needs to be opposed:

2011 Rev. Johnny Hunter of LEARN or http://www.blackgenocide.org, “Blacks have been targeted for elimination.” This has been the legacy of Planned Parenthood, whose creator, Margaret Sanger, was a notorious eugenicist, Hunter continues, “she [Margaret Sanger] is dead and from her grave she is still killing off black people.” (Source: The Interim, Abortion as Black Genocide 5/16/2011)

2011 I’m pro-life and I’m proud to be pro-life because I don’t think anyone should abort any kids,” Florida State Representative Daphne Campbell. ( Source; Pro-life lawmaker demand apology from fellow dem; Charisma online 5/10/2011)

2011 “Planned Parenthood has also been both witness to and architect of a long-term campaign to reduce, if not eliminate entirely, the Black population of the U.S.A. based on its eugenics ideology. Margaret Sanger even famously wrote a letter stating that anti-Black objective in 1939, just before her giving birth to the Planned Parenthood Federation. The Black community needs to look at this non-profit/ for-profit entity with a very careful and rueful eye. It has indeed been and is dangerous to our well being and should be known by that fact. All of our enemies are not dressed like wolves.” Professor David L. Horne (founder and executive director of PAPPEI, the Pan African Public Policy and Ethical Institute) (Source: The politics of reducing the African American population, Our Weekly 5/26/2011)

2011Speaking of Planned Parenthood’s placement of clinics in black neighborhoods-“There was never any Caucasian project or Latino project or Asian project. There was only the Negro Project to reduce the birthrate of poorer blacks. That’s an important point because what they have done, instead of looking at the actual substantive issue, looking at the history, looking at today’s statistics and the continued targeting, they don’t engage in the conversation at all. And I think it’s a shame because abortion affects all of us. It’s not just a women’s issue, it’s a human issue that profoundly impacts all of us.” Ryan Bomberger, President Radiance Foundation

2011 If a person is killed, of what use are all the other rights to him or her?” he asked. “Some people say, ‘I am personally opposed to abortion, but I will not impose my view on others.’ It is like saying, ‘Some people want to shoot all of you in the Senate and the House of Representatives, but I won’t impose my views on them. It’s pro-choice for them.'”

Is it not highly illogical for some people to talk of some whales, and the chimpanzees, and trees as ‘endangered species’ which must be preserved — and if you torture a dog in some countries you will be brought to court for your cruelty to animals — while the killing of unborn babies is labeled ‘pro-choice’ instead of what it is: murder? Call a spade a spade.Cardinal Francis Arinze (SOURCE: Real Straight Talk: Courageous Cardinal Arinze Decries Abortion ‘Word Games’:Zenit News Agency 7/15/2011)

2011 “There are things the black community does not like to talk about publicly, which is why Bill Cosby took a whipping when he called for an internal conversation about an abdication of parental and community responsibility for an epidemic of negative behavior and outcomes…And watch out if we dare to mutter that the No. 1 killer of African-Americans is not hate crime, black-on black crime, cancer or AIDS. The No. 1 killer of African-Americans in America is abortion. These are topics we run from. Again, with knowledge comes responsibility.Gregory A. Murray , chairman of the Macomb County Democratic Black Caucus. ( Daily Tribune: March 27,2011)

2011 Victor Davis, pastor at Spirit of God Fellowship church in Gary, In., “My mother was pregnant prior to me and she aborted that child. And when I came, she attempted to abort me. It has impacted me personally in a very, very strong way.” He says he and mother shared a strong bond and he didn’t know of his situation until adulthood following her passing, “For us, especially in the black community, we are disproportionally victimized through abortion. We’ve lost our minority status as the number one minority in the nation simply because we are disproportionally killing our unborn children for whatever the cause.” (Source: WBEZ: Abortion debate rages in Northwest Indiana 5/12/2011)

2011 “We are about 13% of the total population of the U.S. and yet we have a disproportionate rate of abortions, 35%, based on our population. Does this not make one think that we are being TARGETED?” ( SOURCE: Planned Parenthood and Black Genocide By Agnes Cross-White)

2011 Sylinthia Stewart, 45, said black women are intentionally left uninformed about abortion. She views abortion as black genocide. “Abortion is a racist act,” she said. “I wasn’t told the whole truth.” ( Source News Observer 5/12/2011)

2011 Between abortion and black-on-black crime, as a people group we’re exterminating ourselves. We’re not loving our children in the womb or outside of the womb. So I have to do whatever it is that I can do to help save babies’ lives and to make an impact on our culture. We’ve become a culture of death — and I want to be one of those used by God to move us from a culture of death to a culture of life. Less than two percent of the African-American population is involved actively in the pro-life movement. So any of the babies who have been saved — our babies — have been because there’s been people who aren’t concerned about the color. So [while] I say thank you to that…I also say it’s time for my culture to wake up and to become involved.” Dr. Peggy Elliott, ministry founder and president,Peggy Elliott Ministries ( Source: One News Now)

2011 “I support de-funding Planned Parenthood…You probably don’t hear a lot of people talking about this,When Margaret Sanger – check my history – started Planned Parenthood, the objective was to put these centers in primarily black communities so they could help kill black babies before they came into the world.It’s planned genocide…It’s carrying out its original mission, I’ve talked to young girls who go in there, and they [Planned Parenthood] don’t talk about how you plan parenthood. They don’t talk about adoption as an option. They don’t say, ‘Well, bring your parents in so we can sit down and talk with you, and counsel with you before you make this decision….When they [Planned Parenthood] have an objective to put 75 percent [Planned Parenthood facilities] in African American communities, says to me they are targeting blacks. They are doing the same thing at the other 25 percent, I guess.” Herman Cain, former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza and 2012 possible Presidential candidate

2011The Rev. Michael Pressley of the Mount Zion Church of God in Christ called abortion “the No. 1 cause of death in black families.” “How many doctors, lawyers, teachers, preachers, teachers and presidents have been lost?” he asked. “What can we do to stop this assault in black America and America as a whole?” ( Source Here)


2011– LaVern Tolbert, Former Board member of Planned Parenthood now opposes their agenda, “In 1970 the Department of Health, Education and Welfare (as it was called then, now it’s called the Department of Health and Human Services) with President Nixon, mandated a commission on population and the American future …They looked at how the Black community was expanding. Remember in the 1970s and ’60s, everyone had large families but especially Blacks. We (would have) eight or nine children. And so, they determined that since Black women were so fertile, there had to be a plan to keep us from having so many babies,” she said. “When I first became a board member, I thought what everyone else thought: that (the baby) was a mass of tissue. And I felt that every woman had a right to have an abortion, that it was a matter of choice. At that time in the early ’70s, we knew little about abortion….We didn’t have the information we have now. But while I was on the board, I received documents that detailed how abortions were performed.” Tolbert also noticed something else: She said that while she was on the board, a death certificate had to be issued for every abortion that was performed. “And I thought, ‘Well, a death certificate is only required if it’s a living a being. So, (when you) talk about it being a mass of tissue, how can that be when a death certificate is required?’ When I read how abortions were performed, I came back to the board meeting and I protested….This is traumatic for the mother and the baby.’ And, I was told that it was not traumatic, and then I started looking around the room and wondering why abortion was more necessary for Black women …

2011 Back in the 1960s, many of the radical pro-black revolutionaries (Black Panthers, Black Muslims) and other anti-government, anti-white organizations proclaimed that birth control was just another form of genocide… Little did they know how right they were.Recently, some black preachers finally came out not against abortion per se, but merely against the location of Planned Parenthood centers in black communities.It seems the murder of blacks is only a consideration for black preachers or other leaders when they are killed by white or Hispanic cops. They will march, protest and call press conferences every time a cop shoots a black criminal…So it is no surprise that when President Barack Obama was in the Illinois Legislature, he voted to allow abortions in the third trimester… It is also no surprise that the very first bill Obama signed as President was to reverse President George Bush’s decree and give our tax dollars again to those non-governmental organizations (NGOs) which perform abortions in third world countries. There has not been a word of protest from the Christian leadership. Their collaboration with Planned Parenthood, an organization created by an atheistic eugenics Socialist whose prime directive is the murder of millions of unborn children, is the very antithesis of the gospel of Jesus Christ that they preach. So who will stop the cold-blooded murder of millions of unborn black children?” Barbara Howard is a political consultant, radio host and commentator and motivational speaker. She is Florida State chairwoman for the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) and Trade & Travel goodwill ambassador to Kenya.

2011– “Under the guise of family planning, black babies have been aborted at 5x the rate of whites, yet Planned Parenthood clamors for more, wanting taxpayer dollars to continue funding their genocidal agenda. As they rush to turn 100% of their clinics into abortion mills and build larger facilities in urban areas where blacks reside, it is clear they are carrying out their founder’s Negro Project, designed to control black births.” Arnold Culbreath of Protecting Black Life.


2011– “In my opinion PLANNED PARENTHOOD IS A MONSTER and cannot be DEFUNDED AND DEFUNCT fast enough.” Walter Hoye posted on Facebook

2011: Kevin McGary, author of “Instanity!, “Abortion has everything to do with human right, it has everything to do with civil rights, it has everything to do with social justice. If you’re sincere about racism, this is the pivotal issue.” McGary estimated that 94 percent of Planned Parenthood’s clinics are placed in African American neighborhoods. “Forty percent of all abortions are being performed on African American children,” he said. Noting African Americans make up 12 percent of the population, and estimating that women of childbearing age make up 3 percent of the population, “23 million people have been denied life,” he said. “How can we have principled people that ignore this issue?” he asked, noting that the NAACP, Congressional Black Caucus and council of black churches remain silent on the issue of abortion.

2011– Rev.-Dr. Christopher A. Bullock, pastor/founder of Canaan Baptist Church in New Castle, DE , said the African-American community is “under siege homicide, suicide and abortion, not to mention HIV/AIDS.” “This is the formula for genocide,” Bullock said. “The Black Church must tell the truth to our young people that life is worth living. Life needs to focus on faith, hope and love. Any other path will lead to self-destruction.” ( Press Release)

2011 We must face the truth no matter how painful and unsettling. Abortion kills black children at an alarming rate. We have seen the horrors of abortion in the bloody trash cans behind abortion facilities, in online abortion videos, and in the photographs of dismembered babies. We have seen the killing fields — and we must pray and work in Christ to end the killing of God’s smallest children.” Day Gardner, President, National Black Pro-life Union

2010 – Dr. Alveda King: “Abortion is genocide, it’s killing populations. It’s killing generations and certainly the population that is most impacted by abortion in America is the black community.

On July 17, cops would not allow Wallace to drive his pickup onto the public right-of-way to preach which he says he has been able to do for years. Instead, he sat on a step ladder to preach to the people. Police asked him to come down and arrested him when he refused to comply.

It was the American Eugenics movement; it changed its name to Planned Parenthood …” (Source: interview on His Place TV)

2010: “Racism and abortion are twins in many other ways. Racism springs from the lie that certain human beings are less than fully human. It’s a self-centered falsehood that corrupts our minds into believing we are right to treat others as we would not want to be treated. So it is with abortion. ” (Dr. Alveda King, niece of Martin Luther King)


2010 ” Perhaps there is nothing more sinister than a deception designed to cause those targeted to participate in a deep dark plot to facilitate in their own demise.

When will we push back against these elitists and stop our extermination?” (Pastor Stephen Broden, Dallas, TX)

2010 Dr. William R. Glaze, Sr. Pastor, Bethany Baptist Church- Pitts, Pa “The sad thing is that most African Americans don’t know that abortion is the leading cause of death within the African American Community and when we get a chance to show this video [Maafa21] to them with them, they’re shocked…Personally I’m on a crusade and the crusade that I’m on is to make African American leaders, especially pastors aware of this Black Genocide [from abortion]. One of the things we did, we invited influential members of the African American Community and showed them clips of Maafa21 and talked about it, almost to a person, they said ‘we didn’t know this was going on’, and Pastors began to see how they could show the film [Maafa21] to their congregations other people were going to address it at other levels, so personally I want to see more and more people become aware of this and we’re planning another luncheon to invite more Pastors and leaders to expose them to this genocide that’s taking place.” (Source: interview on His Place TV)

2010: “Abortion providers are still being located for the most part in black neighborhoods and are still delivering the same old message–that black, poor children, living in urban areas–are not worthy of life. America would be a better place without black people. The KKK brutally killed about 3500 black people since it began in 1865–Margaret Sanger’s Planned Parenthood is responsible for the more than 17 million black deaths since 1973. ” ( Day Gardner National Black Pro-Life Union)

2010: “Today, this African American pastor is declaring war against Planned Parenthood,” said Rev. Joe Ellison, vice president of the Council on Biblical Principles. “We’re asking pastors to shut them down in their communities. We’re asking pastors to pray them out and we’re asking Planned Parenthood to leave our children alone.”

2010: “There are conspiracy theories about AIDS and crack cocaine being intentionally inflicted on Blacks. What about abortion? Is there a secret KKK-Planned Parenthood alliance to extinguish the Black race in America? It’s unlikely the Grand Imperial Wizard has clandestine meetings with the president of the nation’s largest abortion provider, but Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger did once address the women’s auxiliary of the KKK…Surely no one now still thinks the same way as Sanger, right? Wrong. Just recently, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said in an New York Times interview: “Frankly, I had thought that at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of.” ( R. Dozier Gray , member of the national advisory council for the Project 21 Black leadership network)

2010: Chicago Auxiliary Bishop Joseph Perry describes in a written statement/talk how the black community in general has been profoundly affected by abortion. Bishop Perry, who is African-American, writes: “Abortion killed at least 203,991 blacks in the 36 states and two cities (New York City and the District of Columbia) that reported abortions by race in 2005, according to the CDC. During that same year, according to the CDC, a total of 198,385 blacks nationwide died from heart disease, cancer, strokes, accidents, diabetes, homicide and chronic lower respiratory diseases combined. These were the seven leading causes of death charted for black Americans that year.” Bishop Perry also notes that the abortion industry specifically targets the black community. He writes: “Dr. Alveda King, niece of slain Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., is a pro-life activist. In August 2007, she told a meeting of Priests for Life ‘those abortionists plant their killing centers in minority neighborhoods and prey upon women who think they have no hope…. the great irony is that abortion has done what the Klan only dreamed of.” http://www.renewamerica.com/columns/abbott/100312

2010: “Black Americans were brought to America in chains. After emancipation, we were subject to unfair laws restricting promised freedoms. Discrimination further robbed us of opportunity. Now, even with a level playing field, abortion is still pushing blacks into a corner. While the United States economy remains on the brink, blacks – who, as a community, are making their way up the socio-economic ladder – stand to lose the most. In promoting abortion, there is much more to lose than just our morality. Our very futures may lie in the balance. ( Mychal Massie , chairman of the black leadership network Project 21)

2010: “Reciting facts such as “abortion is the leading cause of death in the black community,” and “black women are three times more likely to be sold an abortion than her white counterpart” didn’t seem adequate to break through the veneer that covered the eyes of black liberals and caused them to view abortion as more a basic right than an instrument of racist evil. To be honest, I began to give up hope that anything we could present would ever be enough to break through the deep-rooted skepticism that was manifesting itself in illogical political alliances between perpetrators and victims in defense of legalized abortion. Until I saw Maafa 21.” (Reverend Ceasar I. LeFlore III)

2010: “Abortion is the #1 killer of blacks in America and no one talks about it. Preachers/polititicians/Obama: no one talks about it. They just sweep it under the rug. As blacks we need to fight or else we’re going to be extinct. Check out Maafa21.”

2005– In a recent survey of 500 black Americans, only half believed that the government tells the truth about the safety and side effects of new birth control methods.
Birth control conspiracy theories still affect the use of birth control by black men and women, according to a study reported in the latest issue of the journal Health Education and Behavior.
One-third of participants of the telephone survey said that medical institutions use poor and minority people as “guinea pigs”to try out new birth control methods, according to study authors Sheryl Thorburn of Oregon State University and Laura Bogart of the Rand Corporation. Substantial numbers of those surveyed also believed that the government uses birth control as a way to control the black population in America. Almost a quarter of those surveyed agreed that “poor and minority women are sometimes forced to be sterilized by the government”, while 22 percent agreed that “the government’s family planning policies are intended to control the number of Black people.”

1999– A controversial program to decrease the number of children born addicted to crack is sparking both cheers and cries of genocide. Called CRACK (Children Requiring a Caring Kommunity), the California- based group pays crack-addicted women and men $200 to be sterilized or go on a long-term birth-control method. Barbara Harris, the organization’s founder, acknowledges that her program is controversial, including the recent firestorm in Oakland, Calif., when a CRACK billboard was pulled down by an angry crowd. The crowd accused Harris’ group of racism and attempting to neuter the poor. ( SOURCE: Topeka Capitol Journal, Birth control? Or controlling poor population? 11/1/1999)

1990– According to The Advocate in Baton Rouge, LA, (Farrakhan chides blacks for self-destructive attitude Author: EDWARD PRATT :4/19/1990) In a speech at Southern University’s Activity Center Farrakhan suggested that abortion is a tool used by the government to stem the growth of the black population. “Why is it that they come into your neighborhood with planned parenthood?” he asked. He warned the black women that “the one you abort could be the one” to lead black people. Farrakhan said his mother used a hanger three times in an attempt to abort him.

1990 As head of the Black Health Group , Black Health Coalition of Wisconsin, Patricia McManus, sharply criticized Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin Officials, for their plans to establish a clinic in a largely black neighborhood. Some members of the black community thought the proposed clinic would be the one to offer abortions , and after an angry exchange with Planed Parenthood , plans for the clinic were dropped. One of McManus’ charges at the time were a serious one, that those who offer abortions to blacks were in her words, “Promoting Black Genocide.” ( Some in Black Community regard abortion as genocide; The Milwaukee Journal – Apr 21, 1990)

1969 A May 1969 issue of The Liberator , told readers, “ For us to speak in favor of birth control for Afro-Americans would be comparable to speaking in favor of genocide.” In articles and in cartoons in the Black press, the Pill was depicted as a wolf in sheep’s clothing. A poster circulated by the Berkley group: EROS, Endeavor to Raise Our Size- likened the Pill to lynching. Lynching represented “Birth Control Then…the crude way.” Under the image of a woman reaching for her oral contraceptives was the caption: ““Now, the Smooth Way.” (SOURCE: Devices and Desires, a History of Contraceptives in America, by By Andrea Tone Published 2002, Hill and Wang; PP.254-256, google books online)

Some of these quotes are from a new film on Eugenics and Population Control called: Maafa21. It is a MUST SEE film- the best ever made on this issue. The early civil rights leaders, Black Panthers and others saw through the Planned Parenthood mirage. They saw it for what it really was: BLACK GENOCIDE.

In fact, civil rights icon, Fannie Lou Hammer saw clearly that abortion and birth control were being used as Genocide first hand.
Below are exerts of an eye opening incident Ms. Hamer experienced in the realm of Black Genocide written by Black journalist Samuel Yette. Yette was the first Black Washington Correspondent for Newsweek who was later fired after he himself authored a book exposing how birth control and abortion would be used as black Genocide, more on that later. Here Yette writes about Hamar’s experience in the Afro-American:

Mrs. Fannie Lou Hamer was Tough Fighter The Afro American – Apr 2, 1977 By Samuel Yette

” It is still a society in which an injured man must show his ability to pay before getting hospital services, but his daughter or wife can be aborted or fed birth control pills, at public expense…For these and other reasons the recent death of Mrs. Fannie Lou Hamer …was noted here and across the nation not only with personal sadness, but also with stern political reflection.

When the charades of Richard Nixon included a White House Conference on hunger in 1969, Mrs. Hamer was among the hundreds of authentic grass-roots persons brought here to confir with the highly paid experts.

But the conference (whose name was changed from a conference on hunger to a conference on “Food and Nutrition”) was in reality, one great fraud against the poor.

Instead of seeking ways to feed the hungry, the back stage plan was to get the poor unwittingly to endorse a plan to eliminate from the society those who were hungry.

For example, a panel of medical experts pretended to be studying was to insure proper nourishment for babies and pregnant women. Instead it adopted-in the name of the poor at the conference- a resolution providing for:

– Birth Control devices for young girls, free, and with or without parental approval;

– Required abortions of unmarried girls discovered during the first three months of pregnancy; and

– Forced sterilization of any such girl giving birth out of wedlock a second time.

Only one black person-a nurse-was a member of that panel.

Yette continues, In my reportorial role, I found Mrs. Hamer for a reaction to the newly passed resolution.

She responded with shock and outrage at the deception, “I didn’t come to talk about birth control, ” she protested, ” I came here to get some food to feed poor, hungry people, Where are they carrying on that kind of talk?”

Hearing the location of the panel, she gamely pulled herself up on a cane, and made her way to the panel’s meeting room. Along the way she beckoned several black men, who followed seriously intent on doing her will.

She went straight to the front of the room and demanded to be heard.

With the power and conviction of personal tragedy, she told how she, herself, had once been sterilized under the guise of an unrelated surgical procedure. She told how such tools as their resolution in the hands of racist medical personnel would mean tragedy for the black and poor.

Finally, with several large black men at her side, Mrs. Hamer demanded that the resolution be reconsidered. It was, and voted down. But she could not stand and watch forever.

Though she saw the deception and illuminated the society’s most immoral contradictions , she, like the hope and moral vigor of he 1960’s ran out…

The author of the tribute above, Mr. Samuel Yette also suffered persecution for exposing the sinister plot to exterminate blacks with population control methods.

Samuel Yette authored a stunning book called: My Book, “The Choice” and it exposed high level eugenics efforts against the black community

Samuel Yette was also one of the first and very distinguished Black journalists to work for Newsweek. After he published his book, The Choice” which exposed high level attempts of Black Genocide through birth control , abortion, and additional means , he was fired by Newsweek. Yette claims his superiors told him that the “Nixon Whitehouse” wanted him out of Washington.

In One chapter on Birth Control

Yette exposes President Nixon’s White House Conference on Food and Nutrition of December 2-4, 1969. In Mr. Yette’s words it, “was worse than a farce.” President Nixon opened the conference with 3 recommendations designed to reduce the number of hungry people! He suggested no measures for the relief of hunger in America.

1. He wanted everyone to have a guaranteed minimum income of $1,600 a year. (This is less than welfare was paying at that time.)
2. A supposed expansion of the food stamp program that would be tied into and compliment the welfare reform package in #1. (His plan would have actually reduced the amount of food stamps. Less money + less food =more hunger.)
3. Provide family planning services to at minimum 5 million women in low-income families.

This last proposal was part of a plan formulated by Dr. Charles Lowe of the National Institute of Health. The plan recommended Congress pass a law that:

1. Made birth control information and devices available to any and all girls over the age of 13 with or without parental consent.
2. Allowed mandatory abortions for unmarried girls within the 1st three months of pregnancy.
3. Mandatory sterilization for any unmarried girl giving birth out of wedlock for the 2nd time.

In that book, Yette describes how black activist, Mrs. Fannie Lou Hamer was there for the Conference on hunger. When she heard about the birth control proposals she grabbed about a dozen young black men, walked into the room, and demanded to be heard. She spoke about ten minutes on the evil results of this plan and the conference dropped it from consideration.

Archived Resolution unites American Eugenics Society with Margaret Sanger’s American Birth Control League!

Posted in American Birth Control League, American Eugenics Society, Eugenics, Margaret Sanger, Planned Parenthood with tags , , , , , , , , , , on May 17, 2011 by saynsumthn

Margaret Sanger founder of The American Birth Control League which later became known as Planned Parenthood, belonged to an organization called the American Eugenics Society, organized in the early 1900′s. Members from the American Eugenics Society actually formed Sanger’s original group whose name was changed to Planned Parenthood, but even the latter’s first three presidents were officers or members in the AES, including Alan Guttmacher. Sanger is listed as a member in 1956 under her then-married name, Mrs. Noah Slee.

According to an article published in the Hartford Courant in 1935 covering a meeting of Planned Parenthood’s founder ( Margaret Sanger’s) American Birth Control League….
Statistics concerning families on relief compiled by the Connecticut Birth Control League…The same resolution was adopted at the annual meeting of the League, which was held recently in Chicago and at the annual lunch held in New York…the Resolution reads:

Whereas the cost of public relief is now over 125 million dollars a month, and

“Whereas scientific research has shown that families on relief have about 50 per cent more children then similar families not on relief. and,

“Where as these children add to the burdens both of their already overburdened parents and of the taxpayers,

“Therefore be it resolved that the American Birth Control League unite with the American Eugenics Society in formulating and securing the adoption of the most effective plans for providing that as a matter of routine, all families on relief shall be informed where they may best obtain medical advice in a strictly legal manner as to the limitation of families by methods in accordance with their religious convictions. ”

(Source: Birth Rate in Families on Relief , The Hartford Courant, 2/15/1935 p.6)

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.

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 Read it here http://library.lifedynamics.com//Autobiography/Chapter%2029.pdf)

Indiana Planned Parenthood CEO fewer poor babies !

Posted in Abortion, Planned Parenthood, Poor woman with tags , , , , , , , , on July 12, 2010 by saynsumthn

This letter written by Betty Cockrum ,president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Indiana, was published by the Evansville Courier-Press.

As “Sweet” as some may think it sounds – if you know the eugenics background philosophy of Planned Parenthood you will be able to read between the lines enough to see what I see – that this Planned Parenthood CEO Wants fewer children of “POOR WOMEN”.

COMMUNITY COMMENT: Personal responsibility, pregnancy and protection
• BETTY COCKRUM SPECIAL TO THE COURIER & PRESS
Posted July 11, 2010
Betty Cockrum is president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Indiana.

Recently, I was reflecting on my life and the course it has taken.

When I was growing up on a 90-acre pig farm in LaGrange County, Ind., I never dreamed I would have the honor of serving as the state’s budget director, nor the privilege of now running the largest reproductive health care organization in the state.

I’m grateful for the opportunities I’ve had to thrive and do good. I’m a lucky woman. Like me, most Americans are blessed to be able to make the majority of their own decisions and shape the course of their own lives.

Of course, with that personal independence comes great responsibility.

Personal responsibility means making decisions that enable us, and our society as a whole, to be healthier. With independence you get to decide what your life will be like, by educating yourself and avoiding risky behaviors.

In my work as president and CEO of Planned Parenthood, I help Hoosiers do just that by making sure they have information about sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and the knowledge to avoid them.

With half of all Americans getting an STD by age 25 it is now more important than ever that women and men, young and old, understand the risk factors and the need for them to protect themselves.

My job is also to ensure individuals here in Indiana have the tools to avoid unintended pregnancy. The fact is that prevention of unintended pregnancy — by making contraceptives such as the birth control pill more accessible — makes good fiscal sense.

The Guttmacher Institute says that for every $1 spent on publicly funded family planning services in 2008, Indiana saved $4.78 in Medicaid-related costs alone.
The consequences of STDs and unintended pregnancy don’t just affect the individuals and their families; they have real economic consequences for Indiana and the nation. Unintended pregnancy is costly to our state’s pocketbook and to the overall health of our communities.

More than half of all births in Indiana are paid for by Medicaid, which means those children are being born into lower-income households. We’ve seen a 22 percent increase in the number of children living in poverty.

Many of those children will continue that cycle of poverty that keeps them from graduating high school, going to college and earning decent wages.
It is possible, however, to forge a new path, through education and responsible decision-making. There is hope.

Personal accountability starts at home. Parents must take seriously their responsibility to equip their children with the necessary tools to make sound and well-informed decisions as they go through life.

Have those conversations at home early and often.

Realize it is as important to their futures and their quality of life as teaching them safe driving and the dangers of alcohol, tobacco and drugs.

We have resources to help you approach difficult topics, such as relationships, dating, and sexuality education, available at http://www.ppin.org. We are here to help.

Just what does Planed Parenthood believe?

Perhaps this undercover video into one of Indiana’s Planned Parenthood abortion clinic’s will show you how much they care about “poor women”:

And about truthful reporting:

I find some of the “Comments” left on an article by the New Jersey Star-Ledger called, N.J. sees rise in vasectomies amid difficult economy, to prove my point that EUGENICS is alive and well in the minds of pro-choice America.

Comments from April 06, 2010, 3:27PM

Once again – responsible people who live within their means are refraining from having kids because they cannot afford them.
Of course the welfare bums and illegals continue to reproduce like rabbits.
How about requiring birth control for people living off government handouts!
People havng kids while living off other peoples money shouldn’t be procreating.

Posted by jeftaxpayer April 06, 2010, 3:24PM

Get we put together a list of people who should have one? That would be interesting.

Posted by jeftaxpayer April 06, 2010, 4:29PM
You need a license to paint fingernails, but anyone can have a baby, go figure!

( A NOTE- Margaret Sanger founder of Planned Parenthood also proposed “Licenses” for those who have children – so did many others in the Eugenics and Population Control movements, so we see this eugenic ideal still around ! Watch Maafa21 )

Posted by givmeliberty April 07, 2010, 8:42AM

Darwin never contemplated the mischief of man’s inventiveness – specifically the “invention” of the vasectomy. The men having them are responsible and capable of foresight. The leaves the irresponsible to be the ones to reproduce. Golumba – I agree with you exactly. The white shlubs are killing themselves working 60-hour weeks. They have working wives, both pay killer taxes so they have maybe one child. This is yet another case of the tipping point where those who are on the receiving end of government largesse will outnumber those paying in. Those paying in are getting very tired, I assure you.

You have been warned – Eugenics is alive and well on planet earth: Maafa21 Black Genocide in 21st Century America :
