Laurie Bertram Roberts, Mississippi State Pres. of the National Organization of Women, comments on Margaret Sangers racism:
First of all, Margaret Sanger did not work on abortion. She worked on birth control. Context is everything. I will never deny that Margaret Sanger was connected to the eugenics movement, what they (abortion opponents) never bothered to say is that eugenicists also wanted to limit the birth rate of poor white people and disabled people. It wasnt just Black people; it was a whole lot of people they deem to be unfit.

From Anna Wolf Using the KKK to Fight Abortion Rights Jackson Free Press April 16, 2014
Margaret Sanger was the founder of Planned Parenthood. She was also an avowed racist (she spoke at at least one KKK meeting) who did indeed advocate sterilizations of the handicapped and poor.

I just love how she thinks that her explanation somehow makes Margaret Sanger and abortion more palatable.
Some things are so stupid only an intellectual will believe them.
Oh she hated everyone and using cold logic to determine her idea makes it okay to murder millions of black and white children every year. Not buying it.
The bigger the gene pool, the healthier the race. Yes, let’s euthanize and murder anyone who isn’t born with a silver spoon in their mouths. How many innocent defenseless children have been murdered in their mothers womb that could have changed the world? How many Einstein’s, Jefferson’s, Washington’s have been murdered in cold blood out of selfishness and evil? If only one of them cured cancer, eradicated poverty, or developed a way to reach out and grab the stars it would be worth a BILLION....no, TEN BILLION Margaret Sangers, even if all the murdered children turned out to be drug addled fools. I would rather suffer them then ONE Margaret Psycho Sanger.
I’d like to add that denying ANY person (no matter what the outcome might be) the right to live is inherently evil. No matter the reason. Yes, even from rape.
“Our body, our choice”.....idiots. No it isn’t your body. Your child is YOUR GUEST. Acting like a human life is some type of cancer to excise is disgusting. Anyone that thinks otherwise can kiss my white Christian buttocks. Thank you kindly.
I honestly can’t understand that we have allowed abortion to go on for so long. Do you think Benjamin Franklin, Jefferson, or Washington would sit idly by discussing the wrongs? No they would have acted. Years ago.
Natural physiology and chemistry stop the gene pool from branching in undesirable directions.
Your picture is a wonderful example. No man alive would fertilize that egg.
Well “someone did” - several times apparently. Another photo of her accompanied a story about her own 15 year old daughter who got knocked up and had an abortion
"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."
- United States Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, quoted in Emily Bazelon, "The Place of Women on the Court", The New York Times Magazine, July 7, 2009
"In particular, we are able to demonstrate that family planning services in the United States were provided more frequently whenever there were black Americans in the population. In other words, there is a strong inferential case to be made that reactions to the racial composition of the population have influenced decisions to provide family planning services. This fact [, that contraception dispensaries tend to be located in predominantly minority areas, not in poor white ones,] gives apparent substance to charges that such programs are designed not simply to assist the poor, but to control the growth of the black population. "

"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."
- Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, letter to Dr. Clarence Gamble, December 10, 1939 (Smith College, Sanger Collection)
"Population control is too important to entrust to some right-wing, pro-life types. Take the recent influx of Hispanic immigrants: Their lack of respect for democracy and social order is frightening. I hope I can do something to stem that tide. I'd set up a[n abortion] clinic in Mexico for free if I could. Maybe one in Calexico would help. The survival of our society could be at stake. The Aid to Families With Dependent Children program is the worst boondoggle ever created. When a sullen black woman 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 the people have."
- Dr. Edward Allred (multi-millionaire, former owner of Family Planning Associates, once upon a time the largest independent abortion clinic chain), quoted in "Doctor's Abortion Practice Lucrative," The San Diego Union, 10/12/80, pp. A-3, 17.
"In view of the large families of the Slav native population, it could only suit us if girls and women there [Poland and Russia] had as many abortions as possible. Active trade in contraceptives ought to actually be encouraged in the Eastern territories, as we could not possibly have the slightest interest in increasing the non-German population. We must use every means to instill in the population the idea that it is harmful to have several children, the expenses that they cause and the dangerous effect on woman's health. It will be necessary to open special institutions for abortions ['clinics'] and doctors must be able to help out there in case there is any question of this being a breach of their professional ethics."
- Adolf Hitler, Tischgesprache im Fuhrerhauptquartier, 1941-42.
Well. Technology has allowed the lazy, ignorant and foolish to breed. Critical mass approaches and only the strong will survive.
Funny, isn’t it? Planned Parenthood claims to teach young people how to prevent pregnancy yet this idiot, who demands we pay for contraception for all women, can’t even keep her own child from going out and getting pregnant.
She was already pregnant with her THIRD child at age 18.....now has 7.
So even well, able bodies blacks needed killin, but just the disabled whites. She’s still racist.
You know we actually have living relatives of the Founders among us today, yet they are silent, at least they are unheard if they are not silent.
It isn’t funny, nor ironic. The tragedy is that within our grasp is the power to stop this abomination dead in its tracks. But we sit here and comment about the evil done, then go to bed, or go to work and forget about it for another day.
America has been dead a long time, I fear. The great men that fought for this country are literally spinning in their grave with rage for the evil their countrymen have done, and allowed to flourish within this country.
Watch an abortion, and tell me how the murderers in that room should be dealt with. Just because it is law, does not make it right. It is a spiritually bankrupt law that has no right alongside the constitution, and is a silent declaration of war on all mankind. That is the well reasoned, logical conclusion of the abortion debate...anyone that says it is okay is literally insane, and needs to be in a room with an abortion performed. It should be dealt with as the butchers were at Nuremberg. Anyone that says it is okay to murder a living, defenseless, innocent human being whose only made up crime was being conceived forfeits their right to live. It only makes sense. Logically.
The eugenicists of the early 20th get, to some extent, an unjustified rap. They are tarred with the crimes of the Nazis. This is to somewhat unfair, for a couple of reasons.
1. Nazi racial ideas weren’t really (or at least entirely) based on eugenics. Two of the groups they were most eager to wipe out, Jews and Poles, precisely because they were afraid those groups weren’t really inferior, and therefore were a threat.
2. Sanger and other eugenicists of the early 20th had no particular reason to think that trying to limit breeding of children that could not be supported by their parents would lead to 12M people exterminated in Europe. Only in hindsight is there an obvious chain of ideas leading to this result.
If there is ANY hereditary component to intelligence and competence, then it is really difficult to argue logically against the central idea of eugenics. Present scientific evidence is that intelligence is somewhere around 60% inherited. Claims that there is no hereditary component have zero evidence, only assertions based on ideology.
The central idea of eugenics is that if those with high intelligence have few children, and those with low intelligence have many children, over time the average intelligence of the human race will go down. To which the most common response is, “Shut up, because Hitler!”
It is indisputable that in our society there is an inverse relationship between success in life and number of children. Jews, for instance, are in America in the process of breeding themselves out of existence due to a low birthrate (and intermarriage).
That Hitler (or Sanger) believed something does not make it in and of itself untrue. Neither does the fact that evil things were done in the name of a cause.
Now people of good will can have varying opinions on what, if anything, can or should be done to address this issue. But that it’s an issue and a crisis is to my mind indisputable, even if nobody wants to admit it.
That makes her okay then! Whew, what a relief!
Has science evolved to the point that they can help us jump to different universes or dimensions? This world is getting to the point of being completely unpalatable.
