Murdering African-Americans, one baby at a time: Bumped

Category: abortionharmonicminer @ 8:21 pm

Go here.

When you enter the site, and click the “Planned Parenthood” link on the left side, you’ll see the following paragraph, and some very powerful videos.

Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in America. 78% of their clinics are in minority communities. Blacks make up 12% of the population, but 35% of the abortions in America. Are we being targeted? Isn’t that genocide? We are the only minority in America that is on the decline in population. If the current trend continues, by 2038 the black vote will be insignificant. Did you know that the founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, was a devout racist who created the Negro Project designed to sterilize unknowing black women and others she deemed as undesirables of society? The founder of Planned Parenthood said, “Colored people are like human weeds and are to be exterminated.” Is her vision being fulfilled today?

What else needs to be said?  I wonder:  just what were Margaret Sanger’s views on “diversity”, and what do most “diversity” activists today think about abortion on demand?

The cognitive dissonance is stunning.  Now go read the site, and ponder your own perspective on the matter.

    I just came from a meeting with the research director of an upcoming documentary about abortion. He, and the film’s director, both presented verifiable evidence, in the form of letters and passed interviews, which proved that the presenting of Margaret Sanger as a racist as untrue. Any quotes from her on the topic have been grossly decontextualized. They also interviewed a family member, and while they had plenty negative to say about her, they maintained that the racist presentation of her was at best inaccurate. Apparently the above quote cannot even be found in any documents of hers anywhere.

    While it can’t be denied that some members of her board of directors included racists, and eugenic “scientists”, and Nazi symphathists, Margaret Sangers take is seen clearly in her letters and speeches to be much more geared in the area of inconsequent sexual promiscuity than in racism.

    I could be wrong, please let me know. But please keep the issue of context in mind.

    Hmmm… My info on Margaret Sanger comes from many sources. I just linked to the one above, but she was a eugenicist, and while eugenics is not totally about race (includes discrimination against the disabled, victims of various birth defects, etc.), race considerations have always been a major component. I don’t know what’s in the letters you mention above, but the public statements and collegial associations are simply on the record. It is more than mere “guilt by association” when you publish the work of hard racists and praise it. It really doesn’t matter just what you say in your own letters.

    I don’t think I’ve ever heard of a “non-racist” eugenicist, regardless of how it’s spun. The founders of eugenics were racists, among other bad things.

    Regardless of the specifics of Sanger (perhaps she’ll turn out to be a promiscuous Mother Theresa), it is undeniable that Planned Parenthood deliberately pitches its abortion industry to minority, primarily black communities. Get out the yellow pages and check the map.

    BTW, the Guttmacher Institute
    is my source for black/white abortion comparisons, and they are a pro-choice organization, to put it mildly.

    Then there’s this: (Much more at the link)

    A Dark Past by Jonah Goldberg on National Review Online

    A fair-minded person cannot read Sanger’s books, articles, and pamphlets today without finding similarities not only to Nazi eugenics but to the dark dystopias of the feminist imagination found in such allegories as Margaret Atwood’s Handmaid’s Tale. As editor of The Birth Control Review, Sanger regularly published the sort of hard racists we normally associate with Goebbels or Himmler. Indeed, after she resigned as editor, The Birth Control Review ran articles by people who worked for Goebbels and Himmler. For example, when the Nazi eugenics program was first getting wide attention, The Birth Control Review was quick to cast the Nazis in a positive light, giving over its pages for an article titled “Eugenic Sterilization: An Urgent Need,” by Ernst Rüdin, Hitler’s director of sterilization and a founder of the Nazi Society for Racial Hygiene. In 1926 Sanger proudly gave a speech to a KKK rally in Silver Lake, New Jersey.

    One of Sanger’s closest friends and influential colleagues was the white supremacist Lothrop Stoddard, author of The Rising Tide of Color Against White World-Supremacy. In the book he offered his solution for the threat posed by the darker races: “Just as we isolate bacterial invasions, and starve out the bacteria, by limiting the area and amount of their food supply, so we can compel an inferior race to remain in its native habitat.” When the book came out, Sanger was sufficiently impressed to invite him to join the board of directors of the American Birth Control League.

    “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.” Margaret Sanger’s December 19, 1939 letter to Dr. Clarence Gamble, 255 Adams Street, Milton, Massachusetts. Original source: Sophia Smith Collection, Smith College, North Hampton, Massachusetts. Also described in Linda Gordon’s Woman’s Body, Woman’s Right: A Social History of Birth Control in America. New York: Grossman Publishers, 1976.

    BTW, the “weeds” comment is here along with several others. Does the family deny these sources are accurate? They seem fairly specific.
