Do you know why abortion really began? Not many people do. Many today believe it is a ‘’political issue.” It is not. Many believe abortion enablers such as Planned Parenthood are simply there to ensure abortions are less prevalent, although they execute over 350,000 babies a year. Abortion has been spun into something that is completely separate from what the politicians have made it. A lot of people argue that abortion should not be an issue that the government has its’ hands in. I agree because it’s not a political issue. It is an ideological issue. And until the nation understands the beginnings of why abortion came about, it will always be considered fifth on the list of ‘’important issues facing America.” There is no difference between what took place in Nazi death camps and what takes place behind the walls of a Planned Parenthood, it is rooted in the same evil ideology with an agenda that has no (R) or (D) behind its’ name.
Margaret Sanger opened the first birth control clinic in the United States in 1916. She coined the term ‘’birth control’’ after many of her own self-induced abortions. She paved the way for the legalization of birth control under the US Supreme Court’s decision of Griswold v. Connecticut on June 7, 1965. In 1921 she founded the ABCL (American Birth Control League) which later became the Planned Parenthood Federation of America.
What a lot of people don’t know is that Sanger was heavily immersed in eugenics. Eugenicists proudly espouse racial supremacy and believe in the eradication of any race and/or genetic disability that would hinder a perfect society. Eugenicists typically found anything other than the Aryan race was unfit. Sound familiar? Her ideology was rooted in Malthusian Eugenics. Thomas Robert Malthus was a professor of political economics and strongly believed that economic problems such as poverty and hunger were a result of overpopulation. The only way to take care of overpopulation is to exterminate those who were poor, racially inferior or physically debilitated. (Remember that in America, nine out of ten children who are diagnosed in the womb with Down’s syndrome are aborted. Doctors continue to recommend that mothers terminate their pregnancy if they are carrying a child with any disability that could “hinder” her way of life.) Malthus wrote in his 1798 An Essay on the Principle of Population; “all children born, beyond what would be required to keep up the population to a desire level, must necessarily perish, unless room is made for them by the deaths of grown persons.”
Sanger was heavily influenced by Malthus and used Malthus’ eugenics ideology as the basis for the ABCL (today’s Planned Parenthood). Almost all of Sanger’s board members were eugenicists. The majority of financing was derived from big money eugenicists. The ABCL’s original work was actually housed in the offices of the Eugenics Society. Malthus and Sanger believed that charity actually propelled what they called ‘’human waste’’ on society because it enabled overpopulation instead of eradicating the ‘’problem.” In Sanger’s publication The Birth Control Review, she wrote, “…the most serious charge that can be brought against modern benevolence is that it encourages the perpetuation of defectives, delinquents, and dependents. These are the most dangerous elements in the world community, the most devastating curse on human progress and expression.”
Not only is Malthusian Eugenics goal to eliminate human beings considered “defective,” “delinquent” or “dependent,” it is rooted in racism. Remember, one of the pillars of eugenics is: racial inferiority, typically those not Aryan-like. The ABCL became a legal entity in 1929. This was the dawn of the Great Depression and racism against blacks was rampant thus creating more difficulty for them to find jobs and become productive members of society. Remember eugenics targets those races considered to hinder the well-being of a society that has negative economic repercussions. So how ironic that Sanger opened her first ‘clinic’ in a predominantly black populated city of Harlem, New York. Sanger’s goal was to diminish pro-creation of blacks. This is when Sanger began pushing birth control in the black community as an ‘’answer” to the problems they were facing during this time. All the while Sanger had a very deceptive objective. Sanger convinced many leaders in the black community, including pastors and the founder of the NAACP Dr. W.E. Burghardt DuBois that birth control would contribute to ‘’better health.” Gee, where have we heard that one lately? Blacks were facing problems such as: poverty, diseases and unemployment. How was birth control going to fix this? It wasn’t. Sanger knew if she could come at it from the ‘’healthcare’’ standpoint (as Planned Parenthood does today) she could implement her eugenics deceptively. Sanger then took her next clinic to the South…
Questions began to arise within churches regarding the religious aspect of using birth control. Sanger began using words like “reproductive health,” “reproductive practices of black Americans” to err on the side of doing this for the well-being of the black community. Sounds familiar doesn’t it to Planned Parenthood’s “women’s reproductive rights” mantra? Sanger understood the role religion played in the South and was fearful religious leaders would speak out against birth control. As a result, Sanger pushed to have Minister’s placed in leadership roles. In a letter she wrote to her regional director, Dr. Clarence J. Gamble, Sanger said, “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.” She later stated to the National Negro Advisory Council that, “the need for birth control is a public health measure.” Sound familiar again?
The 1939 Negro Project was to show the birth control ads to the health and well-being of the black community when the truth is all it did was serve as a backdoor Sanger and the eugenicists used to implement their evil schemes to diminish a particular race. In a letter responding to a report that indicated the lives of blacks didn’t improve from birth control, Dr. Dorothy Ferebee said, “The future program of Planned Parenthood should center around more education in the field through the work of a professional Negro worker, because those of us who believe that the benefits of Planned Parenthood as a vital key to the elimination of human waste much reach the entire population.” Since 1973 (Roe vs. Wade) thirteen million black babieshave been aborted and continue to be the majority of babies aborted in America as Planned Parenthood targets inner cities and predominantly black communities.
There are copious amounts of evidence that shows the true roots of abortion and the hateful ideology of those who fight to keep abortion legal. We see the same deceptive, flowery language used then by Margaret Sanger and Thomas Robert Malthus used today to fool the masses into believing abortion is a health care right. Don’t be fooled. This is an issue beyond politics; this is a battle of good vs. evil.
The world was adamant to stop a mad man who blatantly called for the extermination of a particular race because they were not ‘’fit’’ for society. Six million innocent victims later, the world did something about it. Now children are being killed legally in America because they have a disability, they are the wrong race or the wrong sex. The very same eugenic-driven, evil ideology that Hitler and Sanger adhered to is being implemented on our nation’s most vulnerable, and we continue to enable it. Why is it that now, over 60 million innocent victims later (and that’s solely in America) have been slaughtered and nothing is being done about it? We have gone from the Nazi death camps to the confines of a Planned Parenthood. If Hitler would have been able to murder the Jewish people inside the confines of a Planned Parenthood, would it be considered okay because it was Hitler’s “choice?”
Thirty-nine years ago the United States of America gave the green light sentencing to death the most vulnerable of a nations’ citizens; the unborn. It seems every year the same marches are marched, the same signs are held, and the same chants are chanted. Yes, I do see a lot of progress being made in the states but after years and years of new law makers in Washington who profess to stand with the unborn children, why has there not been more progress? Why are American tax dollars still going to abort children on a daily basis? Why are there not more on the federal level who are willing to adamantly fight to put abortion as a front burner issue? It’s unfortunate that in America today, abortion is not considered an ‘’important issue.” On various polls I believe its level of importance has fallen as low as Congress’ approval rating. I have stressed over and over, until we get or moral priorities in check, America shouldn’t expect to see much economical flourishing.
I often get asked as a Conservative how I can be against abortion but in favor of the death penalty. My question is how can one be for abortion but against the death penalty? Presidential candidate Rick Santorum said it best recently when he was asked this question; so a man who brutally beats and rapes a woman receives no punishment but the innocent child conceived from the rape does?
I recently partook in a gathering outside Arizona State Capitol on opening day session. Various pro-abortion women’s’ groups were marching in circles in order to tell Arizona’s Conservative/pro-life lawmakers that ‘’we are watching you.” No joke, that is what their t-shirts said. I guess it’s a good thing these pro abortion women had pro life mothers or else they wouldn’t be alive to advocate their so –called cause. Reagan said it best, “I realize that all those who are for abortion have already been born.” One girl had her newborn baby draped in a pink Planned Parenthood t-shirt. Gee, I guess Planned Parenthood doesn’t need billboards anymore! As I stood there I had a few pink t-shirt wearing women come up to me and scathingly whisper in my ear “if you care so much about the children why don’t you pay for their health care!” Well according to these women the only health care they need is a visit to Planned Parenthood and they won’t ever need to worry about providing health care for their child.
It was then when I just stepped back, stood on the lawn and watched these women banter and chant for ‘’choice.’’ I don’t know if you’ve ever just had a moment where you step back and take everything in. It’s then when it really hit me; the pro abortion movement is so powerful and it truly is huge. I would estimate about 250 pro abortion women to the 50 or so pro life supporters. I had a moment where it did seem overwhelming. I prayed. I can’t imagine if I felt that way how much more it must pain the Creator of those lives being called a ‘’choice.’’ As I stood back taking it all in, praying, one thing really stood out to me; there is something in the hearts of these women that only God Almighty can change. There is a hard- heartedness within them. There were times I couldn’t respond to them, not because I didn’t know what to say but I really felt bad for them. These women are so deceived…How does one little person like me break down a hardened wall? Ultimately, I felt comfort knowing that even though the task is huge and sometimes it feels so overwhelming that as Christians we know it’s simply our job to plant the seed and Christ will handle the fruition part…
I pray for the day Roe vs. Wade is overturned and the death sentence imposed on 4,000 innocent victims a day is commuted. The task can seem overwhelming because I felt it that day on the Capitol lawn. How can we as individuals fight the establishment and companies who receive millions and millions of government subsidies to abort children? The truth is if you can impact just one person, you are doing something. If you attend one event and make one connection, you are doing something. We need to be bold. We must not be afraid. Someone has to be the voice for the voiceless. The pro life movement does not have the money the pro abortion movement has, but we do have the Creator of life in our favor. We know He knew us BEFORE He formed us in the womb (Jeremiah 1:5) In the meantime, the death toll continues to rise…what will you do to stop it?
