nothing back from "dadothree".
what a surprise.
Well Guys, I'm glad to know that I was missed. Sorry for the delay, as the name implies, I have a life beyond this forum.
My source was various pro-life websites. Yours was planned parenthood. While I'm sure you would suspect a pro-life website of bias, can you say Planned parenthood(PP) is not? One of the most amazing things about the PP contention, is that they don't let Margaret speak for herself. For example, they claim she opposed eugenics. As evidence they give the following quote.
"Eugenist imply or insist that a woman's first duty is to the state. We maintain that her duty to herself is her first duty to the state. We maintain that a woman possessing an adequate knowledge of her reproductive functions is the best judge of the time and conditions under which her child should be brought into the world. We further maintain that it is her right, regardless of all other considerations, to determine whether she shall bear children or not, and how many children she shall bear if she chooses to become a mother."
The eugenist strategy was to increase the reproduction of the fit and decrease the reproduction of the unfit.
Notice that she does not say anything here against restricting reproduction of the unfit or undesirable. All she really says is that women should not be forced to have children. That's not much of a disagreement.
They also do not even mention the KKK rally at Silverlake NJ 1926. Sanger did not just attend, she was a speaker. Now, I've never been to a Klan rally, but my impression is that they do not encourage a diversity of opinion. How is it that Sanger was invited to speak if she was the lover of blacks as described by Planned Parenthood? Or should we say Klan Parenthood
I don't know of anyone who has falsely attributed the book "The rising tide of color against white world supremacy" to Sanger as Planned Parenthood claims we have. We do say that Sanger routinely shared the pages of "The birth control review" with racist including Ernst Rudin. Rudin later became Hitler's Director of Genetic Sterilization and founder of the Nazi Society for Racial Hygiene. So although she only wrote about 2% of the material herself, she helped them spread their hateful propaganda.
To say that she was not racist is to deny historical facts.
Even PP could not deny that she openly advocated forcing certain people to live on farms. These people included anyone who was illiterate, paupers and unemployables. If she was interested in serving these people, why would she want to force them to onto farms?
The answer is simple. She was a racist. Blacks from farms were moving to the cities. Whites were having to pay for them. Sanger tried to reduce the # of blacks so they would stop coming. Black elites were told that if they could limit their #s then they would become more prosperous. They bought the lie and helped to spread it. This was called the Negro Project.
Any person could occasionally say something that they didn't really mean.
But Sanger continually said these things. More importantly her actions backed up her mouth. MLK did some great things. So did Dubois. But their association with Sanger and their praise of her work is a sad part of history. It is pure foolishness to attempt to rewrite it. We must instead learn from it. Currently Black account for 12% of the population ,but 35-40% of all abortions. I pray the lesson is learned soon.[URL=black genocide.org]black genocide[/URL]
