You shall not murder. Exodus 20:13
Planned Parenthood has apparently distanced itself from its founder, Margaret Sanger. Depending on who you talk to, she was either someone helping people with reproductive problems or she was a racist, white supremacist, and an advocate for eugenics. In other words, she subscribed to the idea of helping humanity along with improving the gene pool by eliminating “undesirables.”
It’s hard to argue that abortion isn’t racist when you consider that the CDC reports over a third of all US abortions – 117,626 – are of black children.
Consider the following from a USA Today article in July of2020:
In promoting birth control, she (Sanger) advanced a controversial “Negro Project,” wrote in her autobiography about speaking to a Ku Klux Klan group and advocated for a eugenics approach to breeding for “the gradual suppression, elimination and eventual extinction, of defective stocks — those human weeds which threaten the blooming of the finest flowers of American civilization.”
In a 1939 letter to Dr. C. J. Gamble, Sanger urged him to get over his reluctance to hire “a full time Negro physician” as the “colored Negroes…can get closer to their own members and more or less lay their cards on the table which means their ignorance, superstitions and doubt.”
Like the abortion lobby today, Sanger urged Dr. Gamble to enlist the help of spiritual leaders to justify their deadly work, writing, “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.”
Indeed, most Planned Parenthood clinics are in minority neighborhoods. Consider that black women make up 13% of the female population while abortions of black children made up 38% of all abortions tracked in 2016. Sanger is quoted as saying, “A free race cannot be born of slave mothers.”
No wonder Planned Parenthood’s CEO issued a statement that they are done making excuses for Sanger!
Eugenics was Sanger’s foundation and is a blight on science that started with conclusions others drew from Charles Darwin’s works. The Carnegie and Rockefeller families essentially hijacked DNA research and used it to start the eugenics movement. Hitler drew on their work, leading to the Holocaust.
I did a lengthy series on DNA; Pirates of the Sacred Spiral, which chronicles their research and the hijinks they pulled in the process. The series starts with Pirates of the Sacred Spiral Part 1. The hijacking of research by the Carnegies starts in Part 5.
The reason I bring up this series is due to a documented episode from the book about an actual sterilization program carried out in the Philippines in the 1990’s. This is covered in Part 16. Here is roughly what happened.
The Ohio State University invented a vaccine against pregnancy. The active ingredient is hCG. The vaccine worked by taking away the free pass reproductive cells normally get from the immune system so we can reproduce.
The Philippine Medical Association discovered some hanky-panky with their tetanus shots in the 1990’s. The Philippine Department of Health discovered that 20% of tetanus vaccines they sampled contained hCG! It was later exposed that millions of women in South America, Mexico, and America got those same tetanus shots!
They got busted when Human Life International and other similar groups found their antennae twitching when they heard reports of pushes for tetanus vaccines that were only targeted at woman of childbearing or pre-childbearing years. This sterilization project was carried out by none other than the WHO!
The 1968 book, Population Bomb, has a telling quotation:
Our position requires that we take immediate action at home and promote effective action worldwide. We must have population control at home, hopefully through a system of incentives and penalties, but by compulsion if voluntary methods fail…We can no longer afford merely to treat the symptoms of the cancer of population growth; the cancer itself must be cut out.” (emphasis added)
Why this hard left turn in an article about Planned Parenthood and abortion? Because, as bad as abortion is, it is simply one prong in a long-time global population reduction plan that he been pushed relentlessly forward by those who think they know best. That plan only targets minorities and “undesirable” populations.
BeautyBeyondBones had a great article about how Hollywood continues to try to normalize abortions and even make them desirable. As she said in her article, we need to resist this with our time and dollars and not patronize “entertainment” that goes against God and His love for life.
Humanity is being attacked from several directions. We must be vigilant. We must be prayerful. We must support each other in our respective efforts to expose and combat this blight on our country and, indeed, the world! Read your Bibles to remain steeped in God’s truth and pray. Pray is if all our lives depend on it, because they just might!
