Liberals believe that Planned Parenthood is all about women’s health and freedom of choice. If only that were true. Planned Parenthood was founded by Margaret Sanger and her motives were far more sinister. The following article is particularly important because it quotes her directly:
The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it
[We should] apply a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is tainted, or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to offspring.
The purpose of the American Baby Code shall be to provide for a better distribution of babies… and to protect society against the propagation and increase of the unfit.
No woman shall have the legal right to bear a child, and no man shall have the right to become a father, without a permit…
No permit for parenthood shall be valid for more than one birth.
Give dysgenic groups [people with “bad genes”] in our population their choice of segregation or [compulsory] sterilization.
Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race.
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. 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.
There is nothing here about a woman’s right to choose anything. There is no mention of women’s health. The goal was to get rid of people Margaret Sanger considered to be worthless. It was a strategy developed by an arrogant soulless progressive calculated to purge society of undesirables.
Do liberals really want to require a permit in order to have a baby? This is really disgusting stuff, but no one on the liberal left cares or even notices. Instead she is honored as a woman who devoted her life to legalizing birth control and making it universally available. That is like saying Adolph Hitler brought free medical care to Jewish people in German, omitting the part about how that medical care was a form of execution.
Her strategy worked brilliantly. The results for the black community in this country have been devastating. I recently read a liberal blog that expressed concern that as many as one in four black women were being forced to deliver a live baby. Apparently liberals don’t want minority women to have any live births at all.
How on earth can any Democrat fail to understand that a free abortion for minority women is the ultimate form of racism? Now we have Planned Parenthood harvesting and selling organs from late term abortions. Democratic politicians are so determined to protect Planned Parenthood they have asked the DOJ to investigate the people who took the videos. Our new Attorney General confirmed that the Justice Department is investigating. This is like someone taking great personal risk to obtain videos of the holocaust being charged with invading the privacy of the Nazis.
This is what happens when people convince themselves that there is no God so there are no God given values. This is what happens when the unalienable rights endowed by the Creator are replaced with values determined by secular humanism. This is exactly the kind of logic that resulted in the holocaust. The difference is that the holocaust killed a lot fewer people. No one said it better than Jesse Jackson himself:
I’m conceding that unless we put human life second only to God in our lives, we’re becoming Sodom and Gomorrah…We have an obligation to take sex and life as a far more sacred event than we do now.
“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 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.
Jesse Jackson was spot on with his prediction of what was being planned and how it would affect the black community. Sadly at some point he discovered that there was no room in the Democratic Party for pro-life candidates. He became one of those “colored ministers” so coveted by Margaret Sanger. I am not sure there is a corner of Hell hot enough.
