Ned has written earlier about the “Planned Parenthood” movement founded by Margaret Sanger, and how it was a part of the eugenicist movement, with a subtle but well-defined outcome of reducing America’s “unfit” population, among which a disproportionately large number of Blacks were targeted. We have promised to write a bit more about this topic and so here we go.
We are drawing your attention to a Letter to the Editor of the Italian-based online publications the AsiaNews. In the letter, Fr Mark Tardiff, an American Catholic Priest, argues against Obama’s stand on abortion when he writes:
The joy over the first black head of state must not overshadow the fact that Obama supports extremely permissive abortion laws, and is against the rights of the unborn. Abortion is diminishing black American communities. The design of Planned Parenthood has always been that of using black leaders to promote the self-destruction of their own people.
Tardiff provided the following statistics to substantiate his arguments:
What compounds the tragedy as well as the irony is that Afro Americans are disproportionately targeted in abortion. Blacks make up 12% of the U.S. population, but 35% of all abortions are performed on black women. Afro Americans are the only minority in the U.S. which is declining in population. Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the U.S. has 78% of all their clinics in minority neighbourhoods.
What is more alarming is the realisation that this development of the so-called “Planned Parenthood Movement” among African Americans is consistent with the thinking of Margaret Sanger and her view on negative eugenics. We once again recommend Edwin Black’s book War Against The Weak for more details about the history America’s eugenics movement from a humanitarian perspective.
Tardiff concludes his letter by pointing out this tragic irony:
Afro Americans understandably voted overwhelmingly for Mr. Obama, embracing a historic chance to affirm their place in U.S. society. Tragically, all too few of them realize that the candidate they think will bring them much more political prominence strongly supports Planned Parenthood and its abortion policies which, if present trends continue, will reduce the black vote to insignificance by 2038. This, too, falls in line with the strategy of Margaret Sanger. She realized that whites trying to eliminate the “human weeds” would be met with suspicion. She laid great emphasis on recruiting black leaders who would convince their people to cooperate in their own destruction.
It is beyond tragic that the first Afro American elected as President of the United States is a man that Margaret Sanger would have approved of, rather than one that Martin Luther King would have approved of.
We highly recommend Fr Tardiff’s letter to everyone who is concerned about the Obama Administration’s policy on abortion.
