I couldn’t help but notice the articles about more tapes of former President Richard m. Nixon being released to the public. One little tidbit in there showed me hoe deep the Eugenics movement has penetrated the thought process of Americans.
In the tape, on the day after the notorious Roe vs. Wade decision. Nixon revelaed his oppostion to abortion EXCEPT in the cases of inter-racial babies and rape. Inter racial babies?
How Margaret Sanger of him. Margaret Sanger a proud advocate of eugenics and founder of Planned Parenthood. She “of course was a racist . These are her words about the “negro project”:
“We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population…..” Dec. 10, 1939
But this attitude can be found today. In 1980, Edward Allred, the founder of California’s largest chain of abortion clinics told the San Diego Union Tribune; “I’d set up a clinic in Mexico for free if I could. Maybe one in Calexico would help. The survival of our society could be at stake.”
Nixon, Sanger, Allred and racism are all part of the abortion debate. For too long too many have used abortion as a way to get at miniorities and people different from themselves. All life is precious regardless of color.
