As the debate continues to rage over what Planned Parenthood stands for or against, and what is the truth about the harvesting and selling of embryos by clinics affiliated with Planned Parenthood, I think the organization owes us some explanations.
Of course, when it comes to liberal causes, getting any real answers may be as difficult as Hillary telling the truth about her emails, or foundation, but one must try. However, when it comes to the defender of women's health issues, PP, answers are not always associated with truth.
Margaret Sanger - Founder of Planned Parenthood
For example, do they tell us the founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger,
Abortions were first promoted by Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood and one of the first to endorse eugenics at the turn of the 20th century. Present Pro-abortion people want to forget the sad chapter in
's abortion movement when
eugenics was the motivation behind "choice" for women, it is a secret
they wish would remain forever buried. America
You see, abortion was never meant to be a "freedom of choice" for women in
sinister way to keep the nation from being populated by undesirables which included
the handicapped, institutionalized, the insane, criminals and the poor lower
classes including the African Americans. In short, it was the vehicle for creating America 's own
super race long before Hitler adopted the Aryan Master race program. America
In the late 1800's, after the Civil War and the difficult adjustment to the freedom of the slaves in 1865, eugenics started to take an unexpected and unknown twist. Over one hundred years ago eugenics was a science defined as; "The quality of breeding well of freely; the production of young by the union of individuals of different species or stocks."
Back at the turn of the century, some eugenics advocates such as Margaret Sanger used it as a justification for state-sponsored discrimination, forced sterilization of persons deemed genetically defective, and the killing of institutionalized populations. It evolved into a practice intended to cleanse the human population of inferior classes and cultures.
Sanger's newsletters and organizations were advocates of this social philosophy and her associates worked with people including Ernst Rudin who became architects of the Nazi Aryan Purification programs under Adolph Hitler.
Margaret Sanger advanced the cause of science even farther than the use of mass sterilization by promoting a way to dispose of undesirables while purifying the race through abortion and targeted birth control of the lower classes.
In fact, she was leader of the eugenics movement up until it provided training to Hitler's Nazis before World War II on the purification of the white race through birth control, sterilization, extermination, and other means. The intent of the movement was the purification of the white race period! Not only did the evil Nazi doctors embrace the teaching of Sanger, so did the Ku Klux Klan, not surprisingly, where she was a featured speaker at rallies.
By the middle of the 20 century the definition of eugenics changed to; "The science which deals with the improvement and culture of race, especially the human race, through improved conditions in the relation of the sexes." It pertained to genes, race and family, and the nobleness of birth.
Make no mistake, among other targets the African American population was a primary target of the eugenics movement. The battle for eugenics raged during the 20th century with the pro-abortionists fighting the Christian churches and in the end came Roe versus Wade in 1973, a landmark bill that did not approve abortion as pro-abortionists claimed but did state that life began in a fetus at the age of 27 weeks, and as early as 24 weeks. As a result, it legalized abortions up to that stage.
Planned Parenthood and Abortions Today
Today Margaret Sanger's Planned Parenthood claims no federal money is used for abortions, and that Planned Parenthood only performed a limited number of abortions.
In January 2014, the Guttmacher Institute, which was founded by Planned Parenthgood, reported there were 1.05 million abortions in the US in 2012, of which Planned Parenthood performed 327, 166, about 31% of all abortions.
Since the passage of Roe versus Wade in 1973 there have been a staggering 58 million abortions in
Planned Parenthood performing over 6.8 million, or 11%. That means the number of abortions performed
by Planned Parenthood has tripled over the past 40 years. America
Still, who performs the remaining three quarters of a million abortions? Again according to Planned Parenthood there are about 1,700 health clinics performing the abortions, some of the pop-up variety who keep relocating to avoid pro-life protestors.
Curiously, Planned Parenthood identifies affiliate status with 66 independently incorporated affiliates and supports 700 health clinics serving 2.7 million additional patients. One wonders if congress has ever looked into the fact of how much Planned Parenthood support to independent affiliates and health clinics is used by those clinics for abortions.
Abortions Compared to Worst Health Disasters in History
Between 1348 and 1350 the Black Death or bubonic plague is estimated to have killed 30–60 percent of
Europe's population, more than
50 million people, reducing the world population from an estimated 450 million
to between 350 and 375 million in the 14th century.
The Great Influenza, 1918 - 1919, also known as the Spanish Flu, the Great Influenza was most likely the deadliest plague in history. The extremely virulent influenza virus killed an estimated 50 million or more people in the space of just six months. The world’s population at the time was just 1.8 billion.
For comparison, the total abortions in
the total world deaths from either of the two worst disease outbreaks in
history, the Black Death and Spanish Influenza. America
Worldwide abortion deaths of 1.7 billion are more than three times the total world population in 1350, and nearly equal to the entire world population in 1919, the years of the health disasters.
The Harvesting of Fetal Tissue and Organs
Now we have the issue of Planned Parenthood medical staff discussing the harvesting of fetal tissue and selling it for profit.
Scientists at major universities and government labs have quietly been using fetal tissue for decades. They say it is an invaluable tool for certain types of research, including the study of eye diseases, diabetes, and muscular dystrophy.
Companies that obtain the tissue from clinics and sell it to laboratories exist in a gray zone, legally. Federal law says they cannot profit from the tissue itself, but the law does not specify how much they can charge for processing and shipping.
There is no doubt that the market for fetal tissue and organs is a potentially multi-billion dollar industry and with those stakes, how long can a government ban on profits be maintained? The black market will surely infiltrate the market if it has not already.
The Obama administration and congress must get to the bottom of the Planned Parenthood numbers games and create a meaningful policy for the long term use of fetal tissue and organs that can be enforced by the law.
