The Negro Project Part 1

Birth control and abortion are some of the hottest debates in this country and have been for a long time. But what, if anything, do we blacks know about the supposed humble beginnings of this revolution that has pitted right and left wingers on opposite ends of the debate? Margaret Sanger has been coined as the mother of birth control, abortion and also of Planned Parenthood. To a lot of people she was a godsend, someone who gave women control over their bodies during the time of suffrage and one of Time magazine’s hundred most important people of the 20th century. To some she is a monster bringing about the death of so many innocent fetuses. So what about the black community, where do you and I stand on these issues, but more importantly on the founder of these debates?

According to whom you speak to these days you will hear a plethora of information about Margaret Sanger. But the one story that most don’t want to speak about her is the fact that she was proposing birth control etc. because she felt that certain people shouldn’t be allowed to continue breeding. Taken from the website BlackGenocide, Sanger said “Our failure to segregate morons who are increasing and multiplying… demonstrates our foolhardy and extravagant sentimentalism.” She wrote in the recently republished “The Pivot of Civilization.” This book, written in 1922, was published at a time when scientific racism had been used to assert black inferiority. So who determines who is a moron? And better yet how would these morons be segregated? She was on record stating that sterilization or birth prevention was necessary for those that she felt were unfit stating “it is a vicious cycle; ignorance breeds poverty and poverty breeds ignorance. There is only one cure for both, and that is to stop breeding these things. Stop bringing to birth, children whose inheritance cannot be one of health or intelligence. Stop bringing into the world children whose parents cannot provide for them.”

She was also reported to have been a believer in the eugenics project. Eugenicists believe that civilization can be enhanced through selective breeding. From its inception eugenics was supported by prominent people, including Alexander Graham Bell, George Bernard Shaw, Winston Churchill, Adolf Hitler and of course Margaret Sanger. Eugenics became an academic discipline at many colleges and universities. Funding was provided by prestigious sources such as the Rockefeller Foundation, the Carnegie Institute of Washington, and the Harriman family (taken from Wikipedia). Having these beliefs she stated that: “inferior races were human weeds and a menace to civilization.”

Ms. Sanger died in 1966 but she did get her wish of having her creation Planned Parenthood seen as a liberal helper to the black community. People who undoubtedly find her a heroine of modern day women’s rights will charge that she was not involved with the eugenics movement. But not only did she never refute them she made remarks that would classify her as a racist in her own right. Also, her publication called The Birth Control Review founded in 1917 published pro-eugenics articles by known eugenicists such as Ernst Rudin on a regular basis. The eugenics movement was all about improving the hereditary qualities of a race or breed by controlling mating in order to eliminate “undesirable” characteristics and promote “desirable” traits. Also espousing that “all children born, beyond what would be required to keep up the population to a desired level, must necessarily perish, unless room is made for them by the deaths of grown persons. We should facilitate, instead of foolishly and vainly endeavoring to impede, the operations of nature in producing this mortality” according to An Essay on the Principle of Population, published in six editions from 1798 to 1826 by Thomas Robert Malthus, The principal of Malthus Eugenics.

Sanger gave this address called “A Plan for Peace,” before the New History Society on January 17, 1932, in New York City Margaret Sanger, as printed in the “The Birth Control Review, April 1932, 107.” Sanger suggested Congress set up a special department to study population problems and appoint a “Parliament of Population.” One of the main objectives of the “Population Congress” would be “to raise the level and increase the general intelligence of population.” This would be accomplished by applying a “stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation [in addition to tightening immigration laws] to that grade of population whose progeny is already tainted, or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to offspring.” It’s reasonable to conclude that as the leader of Planned Parenthood – even after 1929 – Sanger would not allow publication of ideas she didn’t support. Sanger’s defenders argue she only wanted to educate blacks about birth control’s “health benefits.” However, she counted the very people she wanted to “educate” among the “unfit,” whose numbers needed to be restricted.

Grant presents other arguments Sanger’s supporters use to refute her racist roots:

Blacks, Jews, Hispanics and other minorities are well represented in the “upper echelons” of Planned Parenthood Federation of America;

The former, high-profile president of the organization, Faye Wattleton, is a black woman;

“Aggressive” minority hiring practices have been standard procedure for more than two decades;

The “vast majority of the nation’s ethnic leadership solidly and actively supports the work” of the organization.

(From the Negro Project found on CWA)

Writer Walter A. Terpenning, another eugenicist, wrote an article for The Birth Control Review, June 1932, where he described bringing a black child into a hostile world as “pathetic.” In his article “God’s Chillun,” he wrote:

The birth of a colored child, even to parents who can give it adequate support, is pathetic in view of the unchristian and undemocratic treatment likely to be accorded it at the hands of a predominantly white community, and the denial of choice in propagation to this unfortunate class is nothing less than barbarous.

I will leave off on that little tidbit of repugnant thinking. This is just the tip of the iceberg with Margaret Sanger and the eugenicists that I just have to write more about. Let me just say that I am not opposed to birth control or abortion in anyway. But the origins of the two sure make you think about some things. I will be writing another article to continue the mad thinking of this founder of Planned Parenthood and her Eugenics friends, since there are a number of books that have come out in the last ten years that seems to have revived some of the eugenic thinking.

    you have a passionate and thought provkig voice. Keep it up!

  2. theblacksentinel

    Thank you!

  3. I really enjoyed reading your blog. You give some thought provoking arguments and many common sense explanations. I would love to share thoughts and ideas, take a look and check out my blog. I thanks for being a medium of confidence and wisdom. Peace.

  4. anjiknut

    You’ve really made me think about birth ‘control’ in a different light. I seem to remember coming across the situation in a film where young ‘mentally retarded’ men were castrated to stop them ‘breeding’. I’d have to find out more but I think they were white…
    http://www.google.fr/search?source=ig&hl=fr&q=castration+of+mentally+retarded&btnG=Recherche+Google&meta=

    I honestly didn’t expect to find that much onformation.

    Excellent blog you have here, I’ll be back

  5. theblacksentinel

    Anjiknut,

    Thanks, that was all I was trying to do is to have people think about the origins. Yes, the mentally challenged were also on her hit list. Since eugenicists don’t believe they should exist either. I think that any form of discrimination is wrong, and I don’t like the fact that these people are allowed to spew this garbage then become one of Time Magazine’s most important people of the 20th Century, that is bogus.

    Thanks for the reply

  6. hello…the name is frederick…I am caucasion and all i have to say is I’m sorry… I’m sorry racism is still alive im sorry i cant do anything about and Im an american…sometimes i consider that an insult due to our undescribable behavior you have my deepest condulences

  7. Thanks for your blog…it was enlightening and educational. I have been posting about Margaret Sanger for years. Its a shame, so many have bought into this deception for so many other reasons than the truth. Great men and women alike herald Sanger as a saint, martyr, champion, freedom fighter and feminist heroine. Its horrible, the truth about her and her goals. Have you read, “The Inherent Racism of Population Control”?

    i agree that the origins of planned parenthood and Margaret Sangers personal views were horrible, racist and sickening. but as a female i have to say that i am a supporter of planned parenthood and birth control. she may have been a horribly racist person, but by founding planned parenthood she did a great service to our country.

  9. Mrs Mommy,

    The ends do not justify the means. I to agree that womens health care is necessary to our lives. I do understand that she created planned parenthood as a vehicle to sterilize and try to end the black race.

    That was her goal and NO I am not glad for her founding planned parenthood. It would be my wish that someone other than a racist eugenics supporter would have started an organization which could take care of ALL womens needs. Not be used as a front to knowingly harm the black community by sterilizing our women like nothing more than a common stray dog.

    I don’t think that I think too highly of the planned parenthood. I do believe that what they do is necessary but I disagree that this lady did our country a great service. Since she in no way intended for it to be what it is today. It became that way in spite of her. The Nazis did something similar. By experimenting on the Jewish people they were able to come up with a lot of medical procedures which are in use today. But, you would be hard pressed to find someone who would say that the Nazis did the world a great favor by doing what they did.

    Thanks for the comment.

  10. Ah yes, the unable to be (in my mind) honored, Ms. Sanger…her reputation as an anti-semitic, racist, eugenics toting, and fascist color her the epitome of moronism at its finest.

  11. Scott Fairfield

    Year 2012.

  12. Camelle

    In 1966, the year Sanger died, the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. said:

    There is a striking kinship between our movement and Margaret Sanger’s early efforts. . . . Our sure beginning in the struggle for equality by nonviolent direct action may not have been so resolute without the tradition established by Margaret Sanger and people like her.

    Agree to disagree.

    Thanks for the insight.

  13. Camelle,

    I am sorry but Martin Luther King Jr. made mistakes just like any person does. I know that at the time a lot of black preachers and leaders felt that she was trying to help the black community. But oncer her real actions were clear she was stopped. Although her plan was stopped the premise of helping women get health care was adopted and kept by the Planned Parenthood.

    But just because King was duped by her like everyone else of the time does not mean that her supposed tradition was a good thing. She was NOT struggling to get equality for anyone. She was struggling to end what she referred to as pathetic people from propagating. I don’t see how that tradition helped anyone along.

    Thanks for the reply.

  14. I liked reading this. Very well written.

    Here’s my 2 cents. Despite her intentions, Margaret Sanger didn’t ruin the world. It doesn’t matter what your race, we’ve all met people (of every color) who fall in the “Should never breed” category. But, that’s not for anyone to say nor is it our right to infringe on anyone’s right to have children. Even if they are white trash racist morons … nobody has a right to stop them from breeding. Racial tensions will never fade, the debates on abortion aren’t just going to stop, and we can’t all agree to disagree. Someone will always want to argue.

    In the end there’s only one thing that matters … common sense. Debates last for centuries. There will always be extremists like Margaret Sanger who have revolutionary ideas with some not so revolutionary idealistic hog-posh attached. The good thing, my blogging friends, is that these extreme ideas don’t have to come in a package. I mean, Hitler was a dynamite promoter. He was a marketing teachers dream! He had pretty much everything a leader should have … but … his ideas (not to mention his horrific actions and the Nazi movement). Well, you get my point. I hope.

    In case you missed my point … I’ll put it this way. There’s always something positive we can take from a negative, no matter how extreme. It’s a matter of how you look at it.

  15. Paul,

    Nicely put! I love your comment it is right on point. I know that what Sanger wanted was terrible but what came out of it good for women.

    You are correct that Hitler was great at motivating people but was horrible at making good judgments. Also, like I have been saying that great medical advances came out of the Nazi camp but that does not negate the wrong they did.

    Thanks for the reply Paul.

  16. One reason the Pope denounced artificial birth control is because he was afraid it would be forced on people, which it is. In fact that is why it was developed; to rid the world of “human weeds” in every race and nation and build a “race of throughbreds.” Margaret Sanger was a card carrying eugenicist who hated the Catholic Church because of Christ’s teachings to feed the hungry and care for the”least” of His brothers and sisters. The Church provided medical care and nutrition for poor pregnant women. Sanger wanted all charities closed down and replaced with birth control clinics. Planned Parenthood was originally call The Birth Control League. Abortion was later pushed for “women’s health” reasons but in fact it is a backup for the high rate of birth control failure. Hitler, whom Sanger admired was also interested in the development of birth control to stop the “breeding” of inferiors.

  17. Ojie Stephens,

    I agree with your assertions on what Sanger and her Birth Control League, now the Planned Parenthood stood for.

    But, I can’t agree on the Catholic Church caring for the least of us. As they did NOTHING to stop slavery and not much to speak against it either. I do believe that they should have done a lot more in integrating their churches earlier than they did.

    But thanks for the reply.

  18. As a matter of fact, the Roman Catholic Church played a key role in supporting slavery.

    The Church provided justifications for slavery in religious terms. Also, in many cases, Roman Catholic priests forceably baptized enslaved Africans before they were loaded onto ships to sail across the Atlantic.

    While the Roman Catholic Church may not condone slavery any longer, it is still struggling to acknowledge and atone for its role in this heinous past.

  19. Jim

    THANK YOU for the truth. I can’t scream loud enough to the black community to stand up for themselves, see this for what it is, that the whole “choice” movement was based upon well-documented lies by NARAL founder Dr. Bernard Nathanson and Norma McCorvy (Roe of Roe v Wade). They have both acknowledged that they lied. Nathanson admitted that they fabricated statistics to sell the idea to the public.

    When pressed as to what percentage of the population should be sterilized or moved to work farms, she said, 47 .3% of the US population. But her real belief was that less than 14% of the population were the only ones fit to procreate.

    Planned Parenthood has always used blacks as pseudo-leaders to quiet those in the black community smart enough to figure things out. Guess who the latest patsy is? Hint: A Senator from Illinois running for President with a 100% approval rating from PP.

  20. shabazz

    I always figured there was a connection between planned parenthood and the Black community. Notice there are never any protesters or bombing of aboriton clinics in the Black community. I guess abortion wasn’t a problem until they started opening up clinics in white communities.

  21. And you never will see anyone bombing black abortion clinics. Anything that halts blacks propagating is welcomed. When these fools like Palin talk of being pro-life they mean “white” life.

    That is why it is a blessing to have a pregnant unwed teenage daughter. But it is a shame and a show of bad parenting for that to happen to a black or minority family.

    Thanks.

  22. Andrew

    Planned Parenthood has not changed. Their clinics are located in inner city neighborhoods to purposely attract the poor and minorities; blacks especially.

  23. john

    Great story. I’m writing a peice now covering Earths over population and eugenics, among other things. It’s kind of an expose’ and I would like to know if I can have permission to use the Grim Reaper and child image. ( with proper credit given of course ) Let me know. Best wishes

  24. John,

    Have at it! And good luck on your piece.

    thanks.

  25. shea

    reading this article was a complete eye opener for me.
    i really dont know if i support abortions or not.

  26. Randy

    It’s amazing youre right exept Abortion is simply
    a government liscensed birth control.Some say
    “african american” I say youre eighther american
    or not. I realize this is not “Politically Correct”
    but political correctness is what has ruined this
    world if youre black and speak out against liberals
    youre called a sell out.Yet millions of black babies
    die every year and with Obama it’s going higher
    but because he’s black it’s acceptable exept for
    the educated.Some will agree with this some will
    say I’m a racist but a lot of people cant handle the
    truth.

    Thank you,

  27. Randy,

    WHAT?!? I don’t think that ANY President no matter what they believe can make abortion rates higher unless they fuck up the economy to the point that people can’t afford their babies. That is the main reason people have abortions. Not because they are legal. You might want to look into that.

    And I could care less if people call themselves African American or any other American it doesn’t much matter. And I don’t think that people speaking out about liberals it what gets them called sell outs. They are sell outs when they speak in a manner that is untruthful against the black community. In other words when they are using the same propaganda that is consistently used against the black community.

    Plenty of babies are killed year in and out because of war. Does this count against all of our Presidents? Because I am MORE concerned with babies who are already in this world. I feel that they deserve the health care, freedom, love and everything that is afforded to those that are the haves in this country. Not to mention that white abortion rates are higher but of course with propaganda we want to use per capita to complain that blacks are doing it more.

    So thanks anyway.

  28. Lex Talionias

    just because a racist supports something doesn’t mean that thing is bad. Hitler supported criminal justice, should we dismantle the court system? no, and neither should a living thinking person be FORCED to carry a potential life they don’t want to and go through physical and mental pain like no other. I generally ignore women who complain about the pain of child birth, because it is their choice to go through that.

    the whole argument is freedom, abortion and birth control logically doesn’t snowball to forcing people to go through it. the Nazis themselves forced people to have children to boost the population while stopping “undesirables” form reproducing. be afraid of tyranny, not choice.

    cheep shot here, but taking away things like birth control and abortion is Nazi thinking. the thinking that you know what is best for your fellow citizens is what can snowball, not choice and freedom.

  29. Lex,

    I doubt very seriously that you have actually read my post. If you had then you would have noticed that I am the LAST person to be calling for any halt of birth control or abortion. I am for both and always will be. I was merely pointing out which was stated in the post, was that some things that actually can be and/or are needed in life were began by people with terrible backgrounds.

    So in short it would behoove you to read the post before complaining about things never stated in the post.

    Thanks.

  30. truthlove

    I realize people are always going to disagree on the subject of abortion, or more specifically government’s authority concerning written law. But what I find interesting is the lack of compassion for the unborn, or more specifically the possibilities of those future lives that will never be explored. No matter which side of the fence you fall on, it ‘should be’ tragic in everyone’s mind that 50 million unborn children were terminated since 1973 (Roe v Wade). Think about that for a second…. There are only 300 million people in the United States, so that number is staggering. People are so caught up in the ‘debate’, they forget about this reality. 50 MILLION + there potential offspring/s!!!! Maybe I’m just a naïve optimist, but I feel for every bad apple there are a bushel of good ones… And I cry thinking about all the great people we are missing out on. Don’t you?

  31. truthlove,

    No I don’t bother to think about the supposed people who are missing out. Missing out on what exactly? Missing out on being unwanted? Missing out on not having health care and suffering? Missing out on being poor and possibly not having any food or shelter? Missing out on being discriminated against and suffering from racism or sexism or both?

    Maybe we should start thinking about some of those truths! Maybe then people might not have a need to abort a child. People want to sit and pretend as if these children would be born into their small world. Well the fact is that these children would more likely be born into a world that right now doesn’t even feel that people have a RIGHT to health through health care. We don’t even ensure that children have decent food, clothing, housing and education. And you want people to waste time thinking about what these aborted fetuses could have turned into.

    I cry thinking about the fact that the majority of people who claim to love fetuses are so hateful towards children once born. Stop wasting time crying for unborn babies and START crying for the children that are being born only to be killed by OUR bombs, the children who are born to die of illness due to lack of health care, children who end up in prison due to lack of education, parental oversight or horrible environments. Those children are RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW!

    Thanks.

  32. truthlove

    theblacksentinel,

    I have grown up in the ‘poorest’ USA neighborhoods most of my life, and I faced all those challenges you speak of (minus not being wanted). I DOUBT YOU HAVE, as you look among us with such distain & empathy. With a loving family I was able to accomplish my goals and have a rewarding existence. HOW DARE YOU SAY OTHERWISE!!!HOW DARE YOU SAY MY EXISTENCE IS/WAS FUTILE!!! The very thing you’re arguing against in your article, proves to be what you agree with after analyzing your post. Basically, those among us with struggle should not be missed. That my existence could HARDLY enrich your privileged life. HOW DARE YOU!!!! You and Margaret Sanger seem to share the same mindset. By your standards, 1/2 of the World should be forbidden to reproduce. The reality is even the poorest in the United States have a far better life + opportunity than most of planet Earth. Yes, we don’t live in a Utopia. And yes, all ‘moral’ people have a desire to take care of his brother. To make peace. To stop hunger. To educate our youth. But allow us to help make these changes. And don’t look at us as something less… Something that has no right to exist… Something that could never enrich the lives of many…

    Peace

  33. truthlove,

    Obviously you don’t UNDERSTAND what I am saying. How dare you say what I have or haven’t faced. ANYWAY, what I am saying is that instead of worrying about those who ARE NOT here, try worrying about those who ARE! I am not saying that it is futile to bring children into the world. If my mother had been thinking that being poor or being without health care was a reason for her to abort, then none of my siblings nor myself would be here.

    You need to do what you can to insure that those babies who ARE being born are able to have all the things that are necessary to be happy, healthy and secure. Not crying over what you don’t know. It makes NO sense. Why cry over what you don’t know versus what you DO? I had my first child while poor as hell and working three jobs. So don’t begin to tell me how I feel about abortion, poverty or anything else. You say that I somehow think that “some” have no right to live. Really? Is that all you got out of what I said?

    Let me reiterate for you! I believe that people have the RIGHT to do what they feel is correct. Morality is in the eye of the person. I don’t believe that anyone SHOULD OR SHOULDN’T be aborted. I believe that those who are alive are supposed to be alive. If someone made a different decision for THEIR life i.e. not having a baby is not wrong either. I just believe that we need to do MORE to change the environments in our communities and then maybe, just maybe you will see a lot more people actually keeping their babies.

    But if all we can do is cry for those who aren’t here then we will never have enough wherewithall to make our world a place that everyone has what they need to ensure that bringing a baby into this world is something that those pregnant feel right doing. SO until we can do these things don’t sit and lecture me on what or who I should be crying about.

    Thanks.

  34. truthlove

    theblacksentinel,

    I read your post very carefully, and my interpretation stands on logic. If you cannot feel deep sorrow for the poor helpless terminated unborn child that has no rights, I find it hard to comprehend your struggle. I celebrate my existence and the fact I was given this ‘gift of life’, and feel a deep connection to those aborted children that will not have this same opportunity. Why is this so wrong?

    Here’s something else I’m having problems with… Why do you act as though I can not process two situations at once? Can I (or you) not cry for the 50 million aborted lives, and also cry for the struggle so many endure? Can I not pray/fight for reduced abortions in our country, and pray/fight for a better country? Of course I can. To suggest otherwise ‘makes no sense.’

    We obviously share a far different view on abortion, morality, and who is “supposed” to be alive. Although I suspect our thoughts will remain, at least I hope I provided some food for thought. Or at least a different viewpoint from another citizen that faced many obstacles.

    Peace

  35. truthlove,

    The reason I feel it is so ridiculous to cry for aborted fetuses and fight or whatever you want to call it, is because if we make this a better place for EVERYONE that will reduce abortions in of itself. The problem I have with people who talk like you is that you seem to be overly obsessed with aborted fetuses than the actual babies who are born.

    I hear people talking out of both sides of their mouths constantly. They will hate abortion but then turn right around and say that we shouldn’t be supplying people with health care. Or that we spend way too much on the poor etc. Maybe these things that some hate so much are contributing to the abortion rate. But they will never seem to connect the two. It is their way or the highway.

    And what is it with you and this crap about who “should” be alive? You know the people who should be alive are those who are born. I guess that gives you my thoughts. I don’t believe that anyone is or isn’t ALLOWED to be here. I believe that if you are born, you are meant to be here. Somehow are the children that weren’t born due to miscarriage NOT meant to be here either? I think not. They weren’t born so it obviously wasn’t their time to be here. I believe that each aborted, miscarried or otherwise unborn child will be born when the time is right for them. Maybe that is why I don’t bother crying for them, they will have their time like everyone else.

    Not to mention I don’t have a problem with you crying over fetuses anyway, as long as you are using that same pain to help those babies who are brought here who suffer under the status quo in this world. So you have offered food for thought and that would be thinking about all those who cry for the woulda shoulda coulda’s and not for the here and now’s.

    Thanks, and I hope that you direct that pain and struggle to helping those who are here that may choose life instead of abortion if they are given the help needed to provide for the child.

  36. truthlove

    theblacksentinel,

    Our debate has been interesting, but I’ve said my piece. In closing, I just hope you consider not all pro-life people fit into a stereotype. And MANY are at the forefront of creating a better society. From working in soup kitchens, providing food for the poor (via food banks), offering shelter, donating to charity, and even free health care. Yes, these are things the Church does TODAY, and has done LONG before the Government ever cared about getting the ‘poor’ or ‘minority’ vote. So try to be careful about perpetrating a stereotype of a pro-life citizen.

    On another note, I enjoyed the original article. Extremely interesting and informative concerning the eugenics movement. Scary as well…

    Take care and good luck in your future…

    Truthlove

  37. truthlove,

    Indeed this has been interesting. I am glad that you had a place to say your piece. I don’t think that all pro-life people are or fit a stereotype. I was merely speaking of the ones I have had discussions with such as this type. And I hope that is not the impression I gave. Thanks for the compliment on the original post. I still think the founder of the planned parenthood is a monster.

    Thanks, you take care as well and continue to do the good work that will ensure that ALL babies have a fighting chance to survive and thrive.

  38. Johnt

    theblacksentinel,

    You should read the excerpt from Dr. King again in the above post, he was simply saying that without people like Margaret Sanger, the movement would not have been as resolute, i.e., she and other ill people like her were motivation to keep up the fight. He wasn’t saying that she was a noble inspiration, but an enemy inspiration.

  39. Gel828

    I’m going to be very clear, I am a white male. I’ve grown up in a poor, predominantly black community as well as an upper class white community. I’ve every side of many debates and have absolutely no political agenda, nor even, a need for your agreement. On the contrary, please disagree with me for the sake of an intelligent debate. From my point of view, abortion is a positive and a negative as is everything else in the realistic world. However, even if one is against abortion solely due to it’s origins, please consider the positive effects it has on society. I do not mean a minority-less society, but a society in which everyone is taken care of. As bad as the pain of the dead fetus and the fear of what it may have grown to be, far greater is the pain of a starving child who cannot understand why his parents had six children when neither has a job. A far greater fear is if you will live to see your next sibling. This problem plagues both white and black, Asian and Hispanic, etc. Lets face facts, the world is overpopulated, not with a specific race, with people. We are slowly killing ourselves and that is scarier than any racist, any gun, any thing. A racist will die, a gun can offer a quick kill, but the way we are killing ourselves will not die by itself or by nature, and it will be agonizingly painful in every way, to everyone involved. Stop racial tensions. Stop all of the useless debates on what is right in every aspect and damning everything not part of that. We have bigger problems than any of the petty problems, (in comparison of course.) Cry not for the wicked, nor the righteous, nor poor, nor the rich, nor the black, nor the white. Cry for the world that is doomed to collapse under all of our feet.

    Take that as you will and, please, respond however you wish as long as you respond.

    Thank You.

  40. Gel828,

    Damn, I wish I could give you the debate you are looking for. And I am sure that all of the people who argued with me on this story probably will give you a great debate. Unfortunately for you, I totally agree with what you said. And in fact that was what the post was about. That not everything that starts as a totally ignorant and bad thing remains so. It is not always in the best interest of the child nor the family that a baby is born.

    And yes, we are overpopulated and it is going to become frighteningly real all too soon. Hopefully we can do something about it before we all go the way of the dodo bird.

    Thanks for the reply and I hope that other readers give you the debate you are looking for.

    Just goes to show you that abortion is wrong no matter what color you are, it is an unnatural death brought on by the people pulling the strings to weed out undesirables… besides with plenty of disease, war, and natural disasters happening all around us, why do they still worry about population control?

    Margaret Sanger has been unfairly vilified – those extreme sentiments are not hers, but have been falsely attributed to her. In her own time, black leaders were praising her – they surely would have known had she said what is being attributed to her.

    On the picture there is a spelling mistake, it should be ‘we’re recruting now’ not ‘were recruting now’

  45. Nobodyimportant,

    Aptly titled name. Anyhow, I didn’t write the words with the picture. It came as a package. I liked the picture and there you have it. Oh, well. I suggest you find the picture creator for you comment.

    Bye, bye now.
