Planned Parenthood was founded in 1921 as the American Birth Control League by Margaret Sanger. Ms. Sanger was a known progressive from that era and a firm believer in Eugenics and Race Control. Contrary to current liberal beliefs, the original birth control movement of which Margaret Sanger was a proponent had nothing to do with a women’s right to choose. It was all about white supremacy and the cleansing of the races. It was about eliminating the undesirables. And, yet the Democratic Party of the 21st Century continually claims that birth control is a women’s rights issue and has been so from the start. They ignore the past because they do no want Americans to know the truth. Accordingly, this article shall be another of what is becoming one of my rants about the media and the Democratic control of the message.
In the same vein that the Republican Party is demonized by the left as being racist, the Democratic Party has controlled the media on the issue of birth control and abortion. Let’s look at some of the facts in the movement spearheaded by Margaret Sanger.
To begin with, Ms. Sanger believed that lighter skin races were more intelligent than those with darker skin. She also felt that undesirables, i.e. blacks and those with other undesirable qualities, such as “morons, etc., should not be permitted to have children and should be schooled accordingly. However, she was not above using members of the black race when necessary to achieve her goals. One of her most famous quotes is:
“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 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.” Margaret Sanger’s December 19, 1939 letter to Dr. Clarence Gamble, 255 Adams Street, Milton, Massachusetts
The implications of this quote should be clear to even the most ignorant among us: Use black ministers to make sure that blacks don’t know we want to get rid of them.
It has often been said that Ms. Sanger was the inspiration of the Nazi movement to exterminate undesirables and there is plenty of evidence of that on the net. However, according to Wikipedia, “Sanger denounced the aggressive and lethal Nazi eugenics program,” while maintaining that her beliefs could be attained by the use of birth control and proper planning so that the undesirables did not ever have children and euthanasia would not be necessary. There is also similar evidence all over the net that Ms. Sanger was against abortion. Again, she believed that all of her policies and beliefs could be met by the proper use of birth control. In a strange twist upon this, she believed that a fetus was a human life and that abortion was murder. Kind of ironic that the woman responsible for the Planned Parenthood abortion mills was actually against the killing of fetuses. I wonder what she we think of her creation now?
Here is further evidence of her positions as set forth in her address before the New History Society on January 17th, 1922 in New York City
First, put into action President Wilson’s fourteen points, upon which terms Germany and Austria surrendered to the Allies in 1918.
Second, have Congress set up a special department for the study of population problems and appoint a Parliament of Population, the directors representing the various branches of science: this body to direct and control the population through birth rates and immigration, and to direct its distribution over the country according to national needs consistent with taste, fitness and interest of individuals. The main objects of the Population Congress would be:
a. to raise the level and increase the general intelligence of population.
b. to increase the population slowly by keeping the birth rate at its present level of fifteen per thousand, decreasing the death rate below its present mark of 11 per thousand.
c. to keep the doors of immigration closed to the entrance of certain aliens whose condition is known to be detrimental to the stamina of the race, such as feebleminded, idiots, morons, insane, syphilitic, epileptic, criminal, professional prostitutes, and others in this class barred by the immigration laws of 1924.
d. to apply a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is tainted, or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to offspring.
e. to insure the country against future burdens of maintenance for numerous offspring as may be born of feebleminded parents, by pensioning all persons with transmissible disease who voluntarily consent to sterilization.
f. to give certain dysgenic groups in our population their choice of segregation or sterilization.
g. to apportion farm lands and homesteads for these segregated persons where they would be taught to work under competent instructors for the period of their entire lives.
The first step would thus be to control the intake and output of morons, mental defectives, epileptics.
The second step would be to take an inventory of the secondary group such as illiterates, paupers, unemployables, criminals, prostitutes, dope-fiends; classify them in special departments under government medical protection, and segregate them on farms and open spaces as long as necessary for the strengthening and development of moral conduct.
Having corralled this enormous part of our population and placed it on a basis of health instead of punishment, it is safe to say that fifteen or twenty millions of our population would then be organized into soldiers of defense—defending the unborn against their own disabilities.
The third step would be to give special attention to the mothers’ health, to see that women who are suffering from tuberculosis, heart or kidney disease, toxic goitre, gonorrhea, or any disease where the condition of pregnancy disturbs their health are placed under public health nurses to instruct them in practical, scientific methods of contraception in order to safeguard their lives—thus reducing maternal mortality.
The above steps may seem to place emphasis on a health program instead of on tariffs, moratoriums and debts, but I believe that national health is the first essential factor in any program for universal peace.
With the future citizen safeguarded from hereditary taints, with five million mental and moral degenerates segregated, with ten million women and ten million children receiving adequate care, we could then turn our attention to the basic needs for international peace.
There would then be a definite effort to make population increase slowly and at a specified rate, in order to accommodate and adjust increasing numbers to the best social and economic system.
In the meantime we should organize and join an International League of Low Birth Rate Nations to secure and maintain World Peace.
Can it be any more clearer. Not only was Ms. Sanger a blatant racist, but she was also for the control of the “unwanted.” What I cannot understand is why the Republican Party of today doesn’t make sure that all of this is clear to the American people. Why can’t we get our message out? I’m just recently beginning to hear Democrats are the Party that was against black Americans. As you all know, the Republican Party is the of Abraham Lincoln, the Party of Civil Rights, and the Party of Martin Luther King. The Democratic Party was the party of Slavery, Jim Crow, the KKK, forced segregation and George Wallace. But yet, we Republicans are painted as racists on a daily basis!
Why do we let the Democrats control the media? Why don’t we do something about it? Democrats started the abortion movement, not to give a women rights, but to cleanse society of the unwanted. Let’s shout that from the rooftops. Maybe, at some point, people will start listening. And, if we are lucky they will start believing the truth.
