Culture Wars: 

Planned Parenthood is Eugenics in Modern Day

Nick Cannon Doubles Down: Planned Parenthood Is ‘Modern Day Eugenics’

Jerome Hudson

Rapper and TV personality Nick Cannon is not backing away from his claim that Planned Parenthood is committing “genocide” against black people, insisting further that the abortion provider promotes “population control.”

Asked by a TMZ reporter to elaborate further on the topic, Cannon said, “Yeah, it’s population control.”

plannedParenthoodAFAWhen pressed further, the America’s Got Talent host said Planned Parenthood engages in “modern day eugenics.”

The 36-year-old TV star first accused Planned Parenthood of inflicting “real genocide” on black Americans during an interview last week with “The Breakfast Club” radio show.

“Hillary was sneaking and cheating,” Cannon said. “Think about all the stuff they did with Planned Parenthood and all that type of stuff. That type of stuff is to take our community — and forget gentrification, it’s real genocide, and it’s been like that for years.”

Cannon appears to be referring to Planned Parenthood’s genesis in the early 20th century.

Planned Parenthood was founded by eugenicist Margaret Sanger in October 1916. More than 100 years later, the taxpayer-funded organization performs over 300,000 abortions per year in the United States — making it the country’s largest abortion provider.

According to the 2010 census, some 79 percent of Planned Parenthood’s abortion facilities are located within walking distance of black or Latino neighborhoods.

Of the 59 million abortions performed since the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision in 1973, more than 18 million of them have been of black children. Today, about 30 percent of all abortions in the U.S. are performed on black women, while another 25 percent are performed on Hispanic women, Breitbart News has reported.

MATTERS OF LIFE AND DEATH

Planned Parenthood founder busted

Authors join black pastors in calling for Smithsonian to remove Margaret Sanger
By Paul Bremmer

keyIt may be uncomfortable for fans of Planned Parenthood, but it’s true – Margaret Sanger, the legendary birth control activist, was a racial eugenicist who once spoke before the Ku Klux Klan.

The evidence is right there in her own memoir, according to Paul Kengor.

margaretsanger“These are the kind of great lengths to which liberals go to ignore the writings of their own icons,” said Kengor, a professor and author of “Takedown: From Communists to Progressives, How the Left Has Sabotaged Family and Marriage.” “Pages 366 and 367 of her memoirs, published by a top New York publishing house, she talks about her 1926 speech to the Silver Lake, New Jersey, women’s chapter of the KKK. That’s right – Margaret Sanger spoke to the KKK.”

In an interview with WND, Kengor recounted Sanger’s KKK experience as documented in her memoir.

“She describes the white hoods that come through, the flaming crosses that come through,” Kengor recalled. “Then she gets up and speaks, and she spoke for so long and was such a hit that she didn’t get finished until late at night. She also said a whole bunch of additional offers to speak were proffered by her enthusiastic audience, and she finished so late that she missed the train to go back to New York. She had to spend the night there.

“And people might wonder, why would the KKK invite Margaret Sanger? Because Margaret Sanger was a racial eugenicist. She spoke openly of race improvement.”

This fact was not lost on a group of 10 black clergymen who now have sent a letter to the director of the Smithsonian Institution’s National Portrait Gallery requesting that a bust of Sanger be removed from the museum’s “Struggle for Justice” exhibit.

truth-meter-false“Ironically, Sanger’s bust is featured in the NPG’s ‘Struggle for Justice’ exhibit, alongside two of America’s most celebrated and authentic champions of equal rights – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and Rosa Parks,” the pastors wrote. “If Sanger had her way, MLK and Rosa Parks would not have been born.”

Neither would Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, a radio talk-show host, speaker, and WND columnist. Peterson said he agrees with the black pastors’ demand to remove the Sanger bust.

“They should remove it because Margaret Sanger is presented as a civil-rights person, someone who was for the people and for freedom, and that wasn’t the case at all,” Peterson told WND in an interview. “Margaret Sanger believed in eugenics and she believed that black people were an underclass, they were having too many babies in the South and that they needed to be wiped out.”

Peterson, author of the soon-to-be-released book “Antidote,” charged Sanger’s desire to control the black population led her to found the American Birth Control League, which later evolved into Planned Parenthood.

“She was a hardcore racist who hated black Americans, and unfortunately 70 percent of the Planned Parenthood abortion mills are in inner cities right now,” Peterson noted. “[Sanger] was not about freedom for all people, and she wasn’t a leader in the civil rights movement or an example for the civil rights movement.”

Troy Newman, president of Operation Rescue and a leading anti-abortion activist, also supports the removal of Sanger’s likeness from the National Portrait Gallery.

“Her legacy has been one of disgusting racism and eugenics,” Newman, author of “Abortion Free: Your Manual for Building a Pro-Life America One Community at a Time,” said. “Most Americans do not understand that she was more closely associated with the ideology of the Nazis than a modern-day perspective of social justice. Reading through her writings and lectures one would easily find that she would be considered a despicable racist in today society.”

Kengor certainly agrees, pointing out Sanger once used the phrase “Birth Control: To Create a Race of Thoroughbreds” as a masthead in an issue of her publication Birth Control Review. The professor also echoed Peterson’s point that Planned Parenthood targets minority babies.

plannedParenthoodAFA“Today her Planned Parenthood clinics abort a disproportionate number of unborn African-American babies,” Kengor said. “And that’s a hard fact for liberals to accept, and they refuse to accept, and they’re right now yelling at their screen calling me names, but it’s true. It’s absolutely true. And it’s horrible, it’s disgusting, and it’s downright evil.”

“Evil” was the word Peterson also used to describe the Smithsonian Institution’s decision to honor the racist Sanger alongside the likes of King and Parks, who fought for African-American rights. He also called it a “slap in the face” to all those who suffered and died for the freedom of black Americans.

Said Peterson: “I grew up in Alabama on a plantation down there under Jim Crow laws, and to see [Sanger] standing there alongside people like that as though she was part of the civil rights movement is really – it’s evil. It’s pretty evil.”

Why Progressives Are Wrong to Revere Margaret Sanger

 

Paul Kengor @DrPaulKengor

Margaret Sanger is a saint in the feminist church. She is a charter member of the progressive hall of fame. Liberals revere this woman who preached “race improvement” and denounced what she called “human weeds”.

This woman is not worthy of enshrinement.

Democrats given high honors by Planned Parenthood

Hillary Clinton glows that she is “in awe of” Sanger. She said so in 2009 upon receiving Planned Parenthood’s “highest honor” that year: its coveted Margaret Sanger Award.

Likewise effusive was Nancy Pelosi when she proudly accepted the award in 2014.

obama-abortion-p-parenthoodSpeaking to Planned Parenthood a year earlier, President Barack Obama, hailed the organization founded by this racial eugenicist committed to creating a “race of thoroughbreds” and purging America’s “race of degenerates.”

“Thank you, Planned Parenthood,” and “God bless you,” said Obama to a giddy crowd of ecstatic women. The president commended Planned Parenthood’s “extraordinary” and “remarkable work,” and told the women they do a “great, great job.”

The love by liberals for Planned Parenthood and its founder seems to know no bounds. A professor, blogging at the New York Times, has argued for placing Margaret’s mug on the $20 bill.

And alas, even the Smithsonian, America’s museum, boasts a handsome bust of Sanger in its stately National Portrait Gallery.

>>> To read more on this topic: 13 Things You Probably Don’t Know About Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger 

Margaret is there enshrined in the Smithsonian’s vaunted “Struggle for Justice” exhibit.

This brings me to my reason for writing here today: a group of angry African-American pastors are demanding the removal of Sanger’s bust from the Smithsonian.

The letter from Ministers Taking a Stand states:

“Perhaps the Gallery is unaware that Ms. Sanger supported black eugenics, a racist attitude toward black and other minority babies, an elitist attitude toward those she regarded as ‘the feeble minded;’ speaking at a rally of Ku Klux Klan women; and communications with Hitler sympathizers. Also the notorious ‘Negro Project,’ which sought to limit, if not eliminate black births, was her brainchild.”

magnifying-glass-lightoftruthThe pastors quote an infamous December 1939 letter from Sanger to Dr. Clarence Gamble of the Eugenics Society, where, in the context of discussing the Negro Project, Sanger wrote: “We do not want word to get out that we want to exterminate the Negro population and the minister is the man who can straighten out the idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”

The succinct, powerful statement from the pastors adds: “Despite these well-documented facts of history, her bust sits proudly in your gallery as a hero of justice. The obvious incongruity is staggering!”

Amen to that.

truth-vs-liesLiberals must be baffled by this, confusedly scratching their heads.

This isn’t the esteemed Planned Parenthood foundress they learned to admire in their college classrooms.

Margaret Sanger, a racist? Huh? They never heard that in American History 101.

Where could these crazy charges possibly come from?

The answer is a myriad of authoritative sources. For starters, one might consult Sanger’s own words. On pages 366-367 of her 1938 autobiography, published by W.W. Norton, one of the leading New York publishing houses, she spoke warmly of her May 1926 speech to the women’s chapter of the KKK in Silverlake, New Jersey.

Sanger seemed eager to speak to the group. After getting off the train, she was escorted by car along windings roads to a literal barn hidden in the country. There, the undeterred Planned Parenthood matron waited patiently for nearly three hours while her white-hooded sisters engaged in their incendiary routine. She observed “figures parading with banners and illuminated crosses.

The Planned Parenthood founder’s KKK talk was a smash hit. Not only did it go very late, after a long wait, but it earned Sanger a dozen new invitations from the klan-sisters. The KKK was quite excited about the work of Planned Parenthood’s founder.

Thus, it hardly comes out-of-nowhere when a group of African-American pastors today asks the Smithsonian: “How can a person like Sanger, who found common cause with the racial agenda of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK), be ranked among true champions of ‘justice?’”

Precisely.

Such words pierce the liberal heart like a dagger. As many conservatives have experienced, when you point out to liberals that Planned Parenthood aborts (by far) a disproportionate number of unborn African-American babies, they go wild with rage and name-calling. You’re apt to be reflexively called everything from a fascist to (hey, why not?) a racist.

For liberals, facing such a stark reality precipitates uncontrollable, irrational outbursts. You can get called every name in the liberal playbook for raising this one.

As we watch weekly the ghastly Planned Parenthood video expose released by the Center for Medical Progress, in which Sanger’s organization’s “medical personnel” nonchalantly discuss dissecting baby parts while gleefully sipping Chianti and nibbling a Caesar’s salad, bear in mind that most of these babies are African-American. Which among them might have been another Rosa Parks, Ben Carson, Martin Luther King Jr., Arthur Ashe, or even Barack Obama?

These African-American pastors know that. Indeed, they show that 70 percent of Planned Parenthood abortion clinics are located in minority neighborhoods. Thus, they’re undertaking their own expose. Their letter, they say, will be but one “in a series of actions we will be taking to expose the evil of honoring Margaret Sanger and Planned Parenthood.”

Again, amen to that.

If liberals genuinely care about justice, they should join these African-American pastors in seeking the removal Margaret Sanger’s bust from the “Struggle for Justice” exhibit at America’s preeminent museum.

This woman is not worthy of enshrinement.

Barack Obama, 20-Dollar Bill, and Feminism History

Eugenicist Margaret Sanger to replace Jackson on $20 bill?

Vote conducted on female candidates from Feminism History

keyTwo former black slaves who went on to achieve greatness – Tubman and Truth – were also included, perhaps to compensate for the choice of Sanger.

WASHINGTON – Barack Obama says a little girl wrote to him asking why there were no women’s faces on U.S. currency.

andrew-jackson-20-dollar-bill-600That started a movement by a group called Women on 20s, which is now conducting an Internet poll on which of 15 candidates should be the first to replace President Andrew Jackson, ironically the founder of Obama’s party.

But creating the biggest stir on the list of candidates is Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, a eugenicist who advocated aborting as many black babies as possible for the benefit of society.

 

About Margaret Sanger

margaretsangerIn Sanger’s book, “Pivot of Civilization,” she characterized African-Americans and immigrants as “human weeds,” “reckless breeders” and “spawning … human beings who never should have been born.”
In Birth Control Review, she explained the purpose of the American Baby Code was to provide for a better distribution of babies and to protect society against the propagation and increase of the “unfit.” She also argued that women shouldn’t have the legal right to bear a child, and no man shall have the right to become a father, without a permit.

Yet, there she is among 15 candidates on the group’s website to replace the founder of the Democratic Party by 2020 – the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment that gave women the right to vote.
Legally it requires an act of Congress to order the secretary of the Treasury to make such a change, but these are different times. Obama has used executive orders frequently in lieu of getting what he wants from the legislative branch of government, and that’s just what Women on 20s is urging now.

Of the seven bills in current circulation, all feature portraits of either a former president or a Founding Father. And, yes, they are all white men.

Feminism History

Of the 15 candidates, the group is asking poll-takers to pick three. They include a bevy of other Democrats, radical feminists and progressive heroines:

Betty Friedan‎
Rosa Parks‎
Shirley Chisholm‎
Barbara Jordan‎
Rachel Carson‎
Susan B. Anthony‎
Eleanor Roosevelt‎
Patsy Mink‎
Frances Perkins‎
Sojourner Truth‎
Alice Paul‎
Elizabeth Cady Stanton‎
Margaret Sanger‎
Clara Barton‎
Harriet Tubman‎

“We at Women on 20s applaud President Obama for acknowledging that it’s time to put a woman’s face on our paper currency,” the group says on its website.

The group also let it be known it is pulling for the more radical “disrupters” on the list. Two former black slaves who went on to achieve greatness – Tubman and Truth – were also included, perhaps to compensate for the choice of Sanger.
