And even today, the government still funds a privately run organization established for the same purpose. It’s called Planned Parenthood.
According to ABC News:
From the early 1900s to the 1970s, some 65,000 men and women were sterilized in this country, many without their knowledge, as part of a government eugenics program to keep so-called undesirables from reproducing.
“The procedures that were done here were done to poor folks,” said Steven Selden, professor at the University of Maryland. “They were thought to be poor because they had bad genes or bad inheritance, if you will. And so they would be the focus of the sterilization.”
Today, Planned Parenthood continues on with the work of these programs. Advocates for Planned Parenthood will say that this is not so, but one only needs read the words of the organization’s founder, Margaret Sanger:
- It [charity] encourages the healthier and more normal sections of the world to shoulder the burden of unthinking and indiscriminate fecundity of others; which brings with it, as I think the reader must agree, a dead weight of human waste. (From Margaret Sanger’s Early Writings 1922)
- Always to me any aroused group was a good group, and therefore I accepted an invitation to talk to the women’s branch of the Ku Klux Klan…” (Margaret Sanger’s Autobiography)
- The minister’s work is also important and he should be trained, perhaps by the Federation as to our ideals and the goal that we hope to reach. 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 (November 1939 memorandum entitled “Suggestions for the Negro Project,”).
And if you think that Planned Parenthood has changed it’s agenda, check out a previous post “Abortion! Because Lynching is for Amateurs!”
I am not much of a conspiracy theorist. But don’t you find it interesting that the government run eugenics program ended just after the 1972 ruling which made abortion a constitutionally protected right?
