Each week, over 5700 Black babies are aborted in the United States. Since abortion became legal in 1973, 18,647,000 plus black children have been aborted (murdered), out of a total of 62,157,000 plus abortions since 1973.
At least thirty per cent of all abortions are performed on blacks, who represent 13.4 % of the population. Planned Parenthood, formerly the American Birth Control League, is a major provider of abortions in black neighborhoods, providing a disproportionate number of services in those neighborhoods vs. other neighborhoods.
The founder of Planned Parenthood is Margaret Sanger (1879-1966). She is a eugenicist who said in a letter to Dr. Clarence Gamble:
“We should 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. We don’t want the 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.”
Today that mission is alive and well. Sanger craftily promoted “women’s health” to black intellectuals and pastors. W. E. B. Dubois wrote
“the mass of ignorant Negroes still breed carelessly and disastrously, so that the increase among Negroes, even more than the increase among whites, is from that part of the population least intelligent and fit, and least able to rear their children properly.”
Dr. Adam Clayton Powell Sr. allowed Margaret Sanger to speak at a mass meeting at the Abyssinian Baptist Church and Rev. Adam Clayton Powell Jr. served on the Board of the American Birth Control League, now Planned Parenthood.
Margaret Sanger dreamed of a magic birth control pill, and secured funding for Gregory Pincus to develop birth control pills in the early 1950’s. Before that, birth control devices consisted of condoms, intrauterine devices and diaphragms and the like. However, a little known effect of using birth control pills is the decline in fertility for women using the pill for many years. This accounts in part for the vast rise in the infertility business.
Not surprisingly, considering her value set, Margaret Sanger separated from her first husband and embraced the idea of “free” love, having multiple affairs. Later, they divorced. She later remarried. Sanger was a member of the Women’s committee of the New York Socialist Party.
Interestingly, Dr. Marie Stopes (1880-1958), Sanger’s contemporary in Great Britain was also a eugenicist, who said
“…to counteract the steady evil which has been growing for a good many years of the reduction of the birth rate just on the part of the thrifty, wise, well-contented, and the generally sound members of our community, and the reckless breeding from the C.3 end, and the semi-feebleminded, the careless, who are proportionately increasing in our community because of the slowing of the birth rate at the other end of the social scale. Statistics show that every year the birth rate from the worst end of our community is increasing in proportion to the birth rate at the better end, and it was in order to try to right that grave social danger that I embarked upon this work.”
What is badly needed is a God-centered view of marriage that uplifts the dignity of marriage and underscores the importance of sexual abstinence before marriage. Such a view is found in the scriptural teachings of Rev. Sun Myung Moon who explains clearly the purpose of marriage as creating the very image of God. Real liberation and freedom can only come when we follow God’s plan. Anything else will bring false “liberation”, just like Margaret Sanger’s shrill promise of a better life for black people. Instead, we have today’s black genocide, still being promoted as “women’s health” and something that is helping and liberating black women and black communities. Nothing could be farther from the truth.
