To the Editor-
“Birth control, to create a race of thoroughbreds”, “More children from the fit less from the unfit, that is the true aim of birth control”; these slogans are from the founder of Planned Parenthood Margaret Sanger’s own publication, The American Birth Control Review, which often published articles with openly racist commentary.
Originally called the American Birth Control League, Planned Parenthood cannot be separated from its historic eugenic and social engineering past. The original board of directors was rife with racists and those sympathetic to race purification and social Darwinism goals of the intellectual and social elite of the 20th century.
Sanger lobbied Congress earnestly trying to severely restrict immigration of eastern European Jews before and during WWII. She invited Hitler’s top eugenics adviser, Dr. Eugene Fischer, to give a speaking tour of the United States in the 1930’s. Sanger invited Lothrop Stoddard to the board of directors of the American Birth Control League. Stoddard toured Germany and sat in on hearings to the eugenics supreme court.
Afterwards, Stoddard wrote the book Into the Darkness: Nazi Germany Today. In it, Stoddard not only reports on his interviews with Heinrich Himmler, Robert Ley and Fritz Sauckel (all Nuremberg war criminals) but also praises what the Germans were doing for race purification.
Now that the insidious nature of Planned Parenthood and its disgusting excuses for deliberately mutilating aborted, nearly-term fetuses is out, it quickly tries to cover it all up with stated outrage and manualtion of ignorant news reporters who scant research on this organization whose roots are in the most heinous and racist ideologies. Make no mistake, for all the “good” works Planned Parenthood does remember it is the largest abortion provider in the United States and supported by your taxpayer dollars. And so its doctors, who have abandoned their Hippocratic Oath, and the most fragile of our human family, dicker on the price of human flesh to pursue a Lamborghini.
