FOUNDER MARGARET SANGER’S MISSION: ‘STOP THE MULTIPLICATION OF THE UNFIT’
Given that “No Child Left Behind” has been replaced by the Regime with “No Birth Control Left Behind,” and the recent dust-up over the Susan G. Komen Foundation’s decision to stop funding Planned Parenthood, (and subsequent reversal), the Rat has a question:
How much do you really know about Planned Parenthood, America?
Yeah, I know you know that PP is all about providing “reproductive health” services for the less fortunate women among us, but how much do you know about its origins? Not much? Well, you’re about to learn.
Planned Parenthood was founded by Margaret Sanger in 1916 for one primary purpose: “To stop the multiplication of the unfit“– as she clearly stated in her autobiography. This would be “the most important and greatest step towards race betterment.”
Aware that she would need help from “the other side” if she were to accomplish her mission, Sanger recruited black activists to front her plan, conspiring with eugenics financier and businessman Clarence Gamble to “hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities” to sell “community health and welfare services” to the “coloreds.”
Lest you think I’m manipulating Sanger’s words – or taking them out of context – any guesses as to what she called her plot?
Are we all on the same page now?
Ironically, given today’s histrionics by liberals who claim Planned Parenthood’s primary mission is “reproductive care” for women in need, Sanger actually attacked programs that provided “medical and nursing facilities to slum mothers” because they “facilitate the function of maternity” when “the absolute necessity is to discourage it.”
In an article included in her writing collection held by the Library of Congress, Sanger urged her abortion clinic colleagues to “breed a race of thoroughbreds.” Nationwide “birth control bureaus” would facilitate the “science of breeding” to stop impoverished, non-white women from “breeding like weeds.”
Does this sound more like the savior of women in need, or Adolph Hitler?
Forty years after Sanger’s racist views had supposedly mellowed, she didn’t sound all that “mellow” in a 1957 interview. Foreshadowing Barack Obama, Sanger explained her anti-Catholic views, saying that New York Catholics had no right to protest the use of their tax dollars for the city’s birth-control programs: “It’s not only wrong, it should be made illegal for any religious group to prohibit dissemination of birth control – even among its own members.”
So here we are, America – nearly 100 years and millions of aborted black babies later. Sting operation after sting operation by Live Action and others have proved that Sanger’s organization is alive and well.
A 2011 Planned Parenthood annual report proved that 97.6% of pregnant women going to Planned Parenthood were sold abortions while less than 2.4% of them received non-abortion services – including adoption referral counseling and prenatal care. Margaret Sanger would be proud.
In case you’re wondering, not only has today’s Planned Parenthood failed to disavow the views of its founder, the organization’s “highest honor” aptly bears her name:
The Margaret Sanger Award, presented annually, recognizes leadership, excellence, and outstanding contributions to the “reproductive health” movement.
Is it, or is it not, ironic that America’s first black president would champion the cause of Planned Parenthood and Margaret Sanger?
Margaret Sanger and Barack Obama – simpatico. Who’da thunk it?
