The Culture of Death: Margaret Sanger & Planned Parenthood

I keep hearing Hillary Clinton claim some spiritual kinship to Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood. Cloaked in a benign sounding name lies a nefarious organization that readily kills millions of infants under the guise of  providing women with readily available health care. This should be of concern to everyone because their primary funding comes from the American taxpayer, as well as the odious practice of selling infant's body parts.

There is a profound kinship between Sanger,Clinton and Planned Parenthood,but it has nothing at all to do with women's health. What Planned Parenthood is, and has always been concerned with is one thing-Eugenics. For the uninitiated, eugenics is social engineering through "culling the herd" by means of forced sterilizations, abortions, etc., where only "desirable" parents are allowed to breed. It is elitism taken to its most dire conclusion. Hillary is an advocate and ally of this movement, hence her professed kinship to Sanger. A look at Sanger's history will further illuminate Planned Parenthood's goal...which has little to do with parenthood and everything to do with planning.

I used to do a series of college lectures and one in particular applies to this issue- Designing the Perfect Society. In the course of the lecture I asked the class two questions: Given that not everybody will fit into this perfect society, what do you do with those who don't fit? Second: Who gets to decide? There are no wrong answers...the problem is, there is no right one. However, that has never stopped eugenicists from trying.

Margaret Sanger has always been an elitist. She believed in selective breeding- more accurately, in keeping "undesirables" from having children. This includes blacks, Hispanics, Italians, Irish, Slavs, Poles, Jews and just about anyone else from a Catholic country, or anyone who didn't fit into the East-coast elites coterie. These undesirables, she referred to as "human weeds." The following is a quote from her about African-Americans:
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.

Sanger was arrested for printing and distributing brochures that encouraged minority women to douche with Lysol and began handing them out in the slums of the lower east side. Lysol in those days was very different than it is now. It was much stronger and contained chemicals that caused scarring of the uterine walls causing infertility. Before her court appearance, she took it on the lam and fled to Europe.

While there, she became the darling of European eugenicists who applauded her for her daring and courage. While there Sanger met and became good friends with Dr. Ernst Rudin, the Psychiatrist in charge of Hitler's Medical Experimentation Program. When we think of Eugenics in practice, we always go to Hitler's "Master Race." But Eugenics was not limited to Germany. Switzerland, Austria and most of the Scandinavian countries had forced sterilization programs, as did the United States, where over 15,000 young women were forcibly sterilized. I think it's important to digress for a moment here to say that Eugenics is NOT a science- it is a pseudo-science. It employs such bogus science as phrenology- ascertaining intelligence by the shape of one's head and other  equally questionable "sciences." One goal of the sterilizations was to prevent people of lower intelligence from procreating, according to Sanger: [We should] 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. 

The problem with selective breeding is that there are no assurances of what the result of the breeding will produce. For example two intelligent parents will not necessarily produce intelligent offspring. It is likely that intelligent parents will create an environment conducive to learning, but intelligence does not guarantee that that trait will be passed on. Conversely, there is absolutely no data that mental retardation is an inherent trait. Here's an example of the latter (I know this is anecdotal): A young woman from Alabama, 15 years old and considered "slow", who lived with an aunt was seduced and impregnated by a drifter. The baby was taken away and the girl was forcibly sterilized. The baby grew up in an orphanage and became one of the first women to graduate from Harvard Medical School.

After her exile, Sanger returned to the United States and started Planned Parenthood. One further note about Dr. Rudin, Hitler's pet psychiatrist who provided scientific justification for the "Final Solution." He became one of the most frequent contributors of material to Planned Parenthood Magazine. (He also avoided prosecution after the war)

Very little has changed since Planned Parenthood's early days. The victims are the same- minorities. The storefront clinics have moved to high schools for the most part in, you guessed it, minority neighborhoods. Under the guise of affordable healthcare, they continue their genocide with full support from Hillary Clinton (and the American taxpayer who has little to say about it). I may be crazy and not the world's smartest guy, but somehow killing doesn't seem like part of healthcare to me. But, what do I know???
