The debate continues to rage over abortion in this nation. My views are clear: I am unapologetically opposed to abortion as a means of birth control. As an emergency procedure where medical necessity dictates, it is a matter of conscience where a choice between two lives must be made. This is not a decision that I could undertake lightly, and I hope that others share that view.
My purpose in writing is to expose the culture of genocide that lies at the very founding of Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the nation. Its roots go back to the Progressive Era early in the 20th century where the intelligentsia determined to set themselves up as the keepers of mankind, even including the decision of which lives were worth living or even worthy of entering the world. A large number of Americans, and especially those in the black community are ignorant of the roots of the movement and the sinister motives that continue to this day.
[The] incidence of abortion has resulted in a tremendous loss of life. It has been estimated that since 1973 Black women have had about 16 million abortions. Michael Novak had calculated “Since the number of current living Blacks (in the U.S.) is 36 million, the missing 16 million represents an enormous loss, for without abortion, America’s Black community would now number 52 million persons. It would be 36 percent larger than it is. Abortion has swept through the Black community like a scythe, cutting down every fourth member.” 1
Currently, in our government, there is a well-entrenched cadre of true believers in abortion on demand, a group that lionizes the founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger. Among these is Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton. At 4 minutes 25 seconds into this video, Ms. Clinton compares the eugenics advocate and racist Margaret Sanger to Thomas Jefferson. Secretary Clinton even seems to say that Sanger is superior to Jefferson.
So the bar has been set; Margaret Sanger’s actions in life were superior to that of the author of the Declaration of Independence.
Let’s examine the evidence. Let’s start with a video overview of Sanger’s beliefs.
Margaret Sanger was born in Corning, New York, on September 14, 1879. Although Sanger had aspirations of becoming a doctor, she only worked briefly as a “nurse probationer” and never entered nursing school. 2
By 1916, Sanger had fully subscribed to the eugenics movement which formed a central tenet of the progressive movement. Sanger saw birth control as a principal way to limit the numbers of people she considered to be defective. Sanger sought to protect the freedom and power of those she believed to be of a superior breed as they would be needed to rule over the impure masses. At this time she was operating an illegal birth control center in Brooklyn, NY, in a heavily Italian and Jewish minority neighborhood, establishing the model for locating future Planned Parenthood clinics in heavily minority neighborhoods of the inner cities of America.
