OBAMA HONORS GLORIA STEINEM, MARGARET SANGER, AND PLANNED PARENTHOOD
RED STATE ^ | February 16, 2012 | WILLIAM SULLIVAN

OBAMA AWARDED THE 2013 MEDAL OF FREEDOM TO ABORTION CHAMPION, GLORIA STEINEM, AND SHE DEDICATED THE HONOR TO MARGARET SANGER, THE FOUNDER OF PLANNED PARENTHOOD.

SANGER, THE KU KLUX KLAN, AND PLANNED PARENTHOOD

By: William Sullivan | February 16th, 2012

“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…In the end, through simple illustrations I believed I had accomplished my purpose. A dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered.” (Sanger 366)

The above quote is taken from the autobiography of Margaret Sanger, the sometimes revered mother of American abortion. She is also the founder of Planned Parenthood, an organization that has come under scrutiny recently for its use of federal tax dollars in financing the abortions that generate the bulk of its revenue, causing public friction for its supporting groups like Susan G. Komen and the Girl Scouts.

Though a highly misunderstood figure, Sanger is often quickly associated with “progressivism.” But considering that the Ku Klux Klan would be considered anything but “progressive” by today’s standards, this quote immediately begs the question- why were the women of the KKK so attracted to her message?

These women, predominantly Protestant Christians in Sanger’s time, would have generally rejected progressive or scientific social initiatives. Yet they, much like the liberal and commonly unreligious advocates of Planned Parenthood would later do, found Sanger worthy of admiration.

Lloyd Marcus, author of Confessions of a Black Conservative, provides some perspective to address this peculiarity, and shares some truths about what the left’s devotion to abortion has wrought, specifically in regard to American blacks.

He writes:

“Colored people are like human weeds and are to be exterminated.” So said Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood. Seventy-eight percent of Planned Parenthood clinics are in black neighborhoods. Blacks make up only 12% of the population, but 35% of America’s aborted babies are black. Half of black pregnancies end in abortion. Is this an intentional genocide? (Emphasis added)

”The most dangerous place for an African-American is in the womb,” according to Pastor Clenard Childress, Jr. Blacks are the only minority in America experiencing a declining population.

So why would Obama, the NAACP, Rev. Sharpton, and other black leftists be passionate supporters of Planned Parenthood? Why did Al Sharpton threaten to protest a pro-life billboard which exposed the devastatingly high number of black abortions?

Why, indeed. The application of ethics and morality in the abortion issue may vary from person to person, and debating this might require the most complex human philosophy, but the specificity of the abortion agenda’s targets in the black community could be recognized even by a child.

These trends are unpleasant to progressive sensibilities, and they therefore will be ignored or dismissed as false by those unwaveringly devoted to the notion that a woman’s right to “choose” is the crux of the debate. But the extent to which these disturbing trends are hidden and avoided by abortion advocates gives the pro-choice agenda a decidedly insidious nature.

Abortion advocates in Washington, most notably San Francisco’s resident crooked Catholic Nancy Pelosi, have for years prattled about the long-term savings to be had through federal spending on contraception and abortion. The future public cost of education and welfare, they argue, will be significantly reduced if the welfare class can more readily afford and acquire abortions. So the fact that the abortion agenda has a targeted demographic should not, in itself, be surprising- implicit in these past suggestions is that the fertility of the lower economic rungs of society be cauterized.

There is an intense irony in the poor accepting Democrats like Pelosi as their champion in spite of the crowing about the need to sterilize them, but perhaps even more puzzling, and certainly tragic, is the fact that Barack Obama garnered 95% of the black vote in 2008 while promoting a wholesale devotion to a practice that proves uniquely destructive to black Americans.

Half of the black children conceived in this country are aborted before reaching our world, and they are aborted at levels nearly three times their demographic representation. Lloyd Marcus ponders whether this is intentional, but the reality is that it doesn’t matter whether it is intentional or not. Either by design or inadvertently due to social realities, the evidence conclusively shows that the left is fulfilling Margaret Sanger’s vision of systematically exterminating blacks, which should reveal even to the most naive abortion advocate why her message was so incredibly attractive to the KKK in her time. In fact, it would even be reasonable to assume that those same women who once hung on Sanger’s every word might today support Planned Parenthood in their efforts, unintentional or not.

The fact that today’s modern left doesn’t likewise profess the racist intentions of the KKK or Margaret Sanger does not change the fact that the result of its continuing quest to promote federally-sponsored abortion and Planned Parenthood, if one appraises a child in the womb to have the smallest ounce of humanity, does indeed border genocide.

Wasn’t it Margaret Sanger that supported killing black babies by abortion? Am I all wet?

Frankly, if I were head of the national Choose Life campaign, I’d blanket the national airwaves with Gloria’s award, followed by letters, speeches and videos (if any) of Margaret Sanger and her genocide campaign against blacks and Jews, and tie it all together with a Planned Parenthood logo.

In a bazillion years, you will not convince me that killing babies is a “personal right”. Someday, maybe 200 years from now, we will look back and call this the age of immorality.

Given the fact that Bam has two children, who are black, makes this award the definition of irony.

So ironic!! Margaret Sanger would have crawled across glass to have obama’s momma sterilized. She slept with a black man and thereby polluted the gene pool...in Sanger’s eyes. She would have counselled ole Stanley to abort! And odumbo praises her1 LOL!

More than 50 million of babies, mostly Blacks and Minorities, were sacrificed at the altar of progressivism since killing unborn babies was legalized in U.S.; nevertheless, Blacks and Minorities keep voting in favor of those responsible for such a horrendous holocaust.

Sanger believed in cleansing the gene pool by sterilizing or aborting undesirable and ethnic misfits of society.

OBAMA AWARDS MEDAL OF FREEDOM TO ABORTION CHAMPION, GLORIA STEINEM

THE “NEGRO PROJECT”

POOR, BLACK & “UNDESIRABLE”

LEARN MORE ABOUT THE 1939 PLANNED PARENTHOOD INITIATIVE

http://www.toomanyaborted.com/thenegroproject/

The Negro Project was initiated in 1939 by Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood. It was a collaborative effort between the American Birth Control League and Sanger’s Birth Control Clinical Research Bureau.1 For a eugenist, it wasn’t controversial, it was integral to the implementation of eugenics to eliminate the ‘unfit.

Eugenics is “a science that deals with the improvement (as by control of human mating) of hereditary qualities of a race or breed”.2 Negative eugenics focused on preventing the birth of those it considered inferior or unfit. This was the foundation of Sanger’s Birth Control Policy and advocated throughout her writings, speeches, and her periodicals including “Pivot of Civilization”, “Plan for Peace” and countless Birth Control Review articles.

The pseudo-science (racial hygiene theory) of negative eugenics influenced social policy and eugenics-based legislation (Immigration Act of 19243, segregation laws, sterilization laws) and led to the racial hygiene theory adopted by the Nazis.

Noted eugenist, Eugen Fischer, who was funded by The Rockefeller Foundation (one of many same organizations that also financially supported Sanger’s work), was responsible for the Nazi adoption of racial hygiene theory at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute that led to the eugenics implementation of the holocaust.4

The connection between American Eugenics and the horrors of Nazi Germany are irrefutable. The preponderance of evidence of where Sanger wanted to go (although she decried the atrocities of the holocaust after WWII) shows the ignorance and naivete of eugenics philosophy and its eventual conclusion, left undeterred. The Negro Project was but a precursor to what eugenists wanted to implement on a much larger scale.

“The main objectives of the [proposed] Population Congress is to…apply a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is already tainted, or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to offspring.” – Margaret Sanger, “Plan for Peace”, 1932 Senate hearing5

MAAFA21 is a powerful documentary that exposes the eugenic racism of Planned Parenthood. Watch it, free, online at www.Maafa21.com

This is the same Sanger who persuaded a few reluctant, yet incredibly influential, black ministers to join in her Birth Control movement. To dispel the rising doubts among those who objected to Birth Control on religious and moral grounds, Sanger wrote that “the ministers work is also important… offering to train him in their ideals because “we do not want 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”.6

Many use this statement to bolster the claim that Sanger wanted to exterminate all of the black population, but this statement is about reducing a certain type of black individual that Sanger believed should be eliminated, sterilized, or segregated onto farms.7 Those who were poor and (supposedly) less intelligent.

Eugenists believed the entirety of the black population were intellectually and racially inferior. (Sanger’s ideological agreement and written/spoken solidarity with the eugenics movements does throw legitimate doubt on whether it was only a segment of the black population that was being targeted.) With the help of elite and famous African-Americans Mary McLeod Bethune, W.E.B. DuBois, and Rev. Adam Clayton Powell, Sr., the Negro Project was able to be sold as a solution to poverty and high birth rates.

It is crucial, however, to understand this endeavor in conjunction with Sanger’s dominant efforts of ‘eliminating the unfit’ and her hatred of charitable organizations. She devotes an entire chapter on charities and how those who finance them “are dropping millions into rosewater philanthropies and charities that are silly at best and vicious at worst.”8

“Organized charity itself is the symptom of a malignant social disease…Instead of decreasing and aiming to eliminate the stocks [of people] that are most detrimental to the future of the race and the world, it tends to render them to a menacing degree dominant.”– Margaret Sanger, Pivot of Civilization, Chapter V, “Cruelty of Charity”

BLACK CHILDREN ARE AN ENDANGERED SPECIES.

Here is the simple truth. The intent of Sanger’s Negro Project is firmly intact. Nearly 40% of all African-American pregnancies end in induced abortion.9 This is by design. Abortion kills more black lives (363,705)10 than all other causes of death combined (285,522).11 The African-American abortion rate is up to 6 times that of the white population (as in NYC where black babies are aborted at 5.8 times the rate of white babies).

Abortion, no matter the race, is a tragedy. This is a crisis situation. The media has been mostly silent. Our churches are mostly silent. But the truth screams loud and clear. Under the false liberty of ‘reproductive freedom’ we are killing our very future.

It takes a lot of sacrificing to keep the RATs in power. The trouble is Beelzebub always requires a larger sacrifice each time around.

As long as he’s honoring Margaret Sanger, why not honor the KKK too. After all, the KKK was started by his own party.
