My Commentary: Time for a history lesson about eugenics…

Many are aware of the fact that the Eugenics laws of the United States, which began to spring up in the 1900s, legalized the State-sponsored sterilization of the mentally and genetically “inferior” for almost a hundred years – specifically targeting the disabled, and minority groups.

Few realize, however, that US Eugenics laws weren’t just implemented overnight, but were merely a “scientifically justified” repackaging of US anti-disablity and anti-minority-based “ugly laws”…

And, sterilization laws and laws restricting immigration weren’t the only means for the genocidal eugenicists of America to reduce the number of “inferior” human beings living and reproducing in the USA. Planned Parenthood founder, Margaret Sanger, a hard-core eugenicist, said of her “work”:

“Birth Control is not contraception indiscriminately and thoughtlessly practiced. It means the release and cultivation of the better racial elements in our society, and the gradual suppression, elimination and eventual extirpation of defective stocks — those human weeds which threaten the blooming of the finest flowers of American civilization.” (“Apostle of Birth Control Sees Cause Gaining Here”, The New York Times, 1923-04-08)
