Abortion and eugenics

From Conservapedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Abortion and eugenics are often very strongly related. Abortion is commonly used to kill those babies who happen to suffer from Down Syndrome [1][2][3] and other physical and mental issues, to remove said physical and mental issues from the human race. Eugenics is essentially the unethical removal of those with physical and mental issues to "purify" the human race.

Margaret Sanger, eugenics and racism

Margaret Sanger was an American feminist and eugenics activist who founded the American Birth Control League. She retired from the organization in 1940 and it eventually became Planned Parenthood. Her main success was in bringing discussions of Birth Control into the public arena. She blamed large families for all of the ills of society,[4] and argued that a major reason to promote birth control was to stop abortions.[5] She was vigorously denounced by the Catholic Church because of her position on birth control.

Harlem clinic

Working with the Urban League in 1929, Sanger opened up the first birth control clinic in Harlem, New York.[6] That same year, Sanger established the National Committee on Federal Legislation for Birth Control as a lobbying organization, in order to influence the creation and amendment of laws pertaining to abortion and birth control.[7] It was closed in 1937, only six months after the court case United States v. One Package of Japanese Pessaries.[8]

Eugenics and race

Margaret Sanger campaigned for eugenic controls to enforce what she called "race hygiene" and was a member of the American Eugenics Society and the English Eugenics Society.[9][10][11]

Many modern ideas of the substandard morals and inferiority of particular races are echoed in Sanger's writings. She wrote in one of her "What Every Girl Should Know" commentaries, that aboriginal Australians are in her opinion "the lowest known species of the human family, just a step higher than the chimpanzee in brain development," and that they possess "so little sexual control that police authority alone prevents him from obtaining sexual satisfaction on the streets." She compared these aborigines to "normal man and Woman" who have demonstrated control over their sexual desires.[12] She had a very deep hatred for other races that demonstrated a greater fecundity, such as the Chinese and the aborigines.

Additionally, she wrote about the failure of traditional ethics in sexuality that "... have in the past revealed their woeful inability to prevent the sexual and racial chaos into which the world has today drifted."[13]

Margaret Sanger associated with racists[14] and in 1926, she was the guest speaker at a Ku Klux Klan rally in Silverlake, New Jersey.[15]

Minority Communities and Planned Parenthood

According to Cybercast News Service: "An analysis by the Cybercast News Service compared the location of Planned Parenthood abortion clinics with population data from the U.S. Census in 2000. The results appear to bolster the charge that the organization targets black communities."[16]

"Each day 1,786 African American children are aborted." According to the U.S. Census of 2006, African Americans are at 1.96 birth rate which is beneath the replacement level of 2.1.[17] At the continued rate, racism by abortion will decimate the black population of the U.S.

According to writer George Grant, the author of Killing Angel:

"During the 1980s when Planned Parenthood shifted its focus from community-based clinics to school-based clinics, it again targeted inner-city minority neighborhoods...Of the more than 100 school-based clinics that have opened nationwide in the last decade [1980s], none has been at substantially all-white schools....None has been at suburban middle-class schools. All have been at black, minority or ethnic schools.” [18]

Planned Parenthood itself reported that its abortions on minorities in 1991 were 42.7% of its total abortions.[19] However, during that time period, minorities comprised only 19.7% of the U.S. population.[19]

According to Cybercast News Service: "An analysis by the Cybercast News Service compared the location of Planned Parenthood abortion clinics with population data from the U.S. Census in 2000. The results appear to bolster the charge that the organization targets black communities."[16]

Abortion and Down Syndrome

It is extremely normal to abort babies with Down Syndrome.[20] In the United Kingdom, 90% of babies with Down Syndrome are aborted.[3] In Denmark, that number is 98%.[2] In Iceland, nearly 100% of babies with Down Syndrome are aborted,[21] and other countries in the world have percentages in the 90s.[2]
