For Some of Us, the Battle IS Personal
If Margaret Sanger had her way, Paul in this video wouldn't be here today. For that matter, neither would I since my maternal grandarents were Southern European from Italia. Fortunately, we survived her efforts & those of Planned Parenthood. Sadly a huge number of babies haven't. Planned Parenthood must be stopped. Yes, it is personal for me. Because I am here despite Sanger's & PPs attempst, I know that I have a moral & God given responsibility to fight their agenda in order to save the lives of others.
Here are some of the things Sanger said that betray her racist views. Views that PP either ignores or downplays while forwarding the very agenda. Or in 1 case even out & out lies about what she said while calling those who quote directly from her books the ones who are misquoting her. They deny that she was a eugenicist even though 1 of her publications uses that title. But am I surprized that an organization that covers up rape & incest would try to cover up the truth about their Sanger begun agenda? NO!:
‘The lower down in the scale of human development we go the less sexual control we find. It is said the aboriginal Australian, the lowest known species of the human family, just a step higher than the chimpanzee in brain development, has so little sexual control that police authority alone prevents him from obtaining sexual satisfaction on the streets. According to one writer, the rapist has just enough brain development to raise him above the animal, but like the animal, when in heat, knows no law except nature, which impels him to procreate, whatever the result.’"22
"As an advocate of birth control I wish ... to point out that the unbalance between the birth rate of the 'unfit' and the 'fit,' admittedly the greatest present menace to civilization, can never be rectified by the inauguration of a cradle competition between these two classes. In this matter, the example of the inferior classes, the fertility of the feeble-minded, the mentally defective, the poverty-stricken classes, should not be held up for emulation.... On the contrary, the most urgent problem today is how to limit and discourage the over-fertility of the mentally and physically defective." - "The Eugenic Value of Birth Control Propaganda", October 1921, page 5.
"[We propose to] 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. And we do not want 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." - Commenting on the 'Negro Project' in a letter to Dr. Clarence Gamble, December 10, 1939
In Pivot of Civilization, Sanger referred to immigrants and poor folks as "human weeds," "reckless breeders," "spawning ... human beings who never should have been born."
"[Slavs, Latin, and Hebrew immigrants are] human weeds ... a deadweight of human waste ...[Blacks, soldiers, and Jews are a] menace to the race." "Eugenic sterilization is an urgent need ... We must prevent Multiplication of this bad stock." -- Margaret Sanger, April 1933 Birth Control Review . (Back then Latin was commonly used to refer to those of Italiano descent. Remember Valentino was considered the 1st Latin Lover.)
Sono Italiano-americano. I am a member of St Joseph the Worker Roman Catholic Church. I am an advisor to Alpha Phi Omega & College Republicans at Loras College. I am a member of the Dubuque Co. Republican Central Committee. I have been involved in the Catholic Charismatic Renewal Movement since 1974. For me the overriding issue of the day is defending the preborn & upholding their right to life. If we don't value life before birth, we devalue it after birth. Life is a gift from God. This is why I am a supporter of the work that Dubuque County Right to Life does in my area. & that is why I am politically active. Our nation's laws need to be changed to protect all from conception to natural death.
