America’s Infatuation With Abortion-Based Eugenics

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following photo here, being shared by the page, “Defund Planned Parenthood” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

“My heart is with every child of rape, foster child, child with disability, etc. who has basically been told for the past 72 hours on all forms of news and social media they aren’t wanted and don’t deserve to exist right now.”

My Commentary: “Lebensunwertes Leben”?

Brief Reports Decline of Down’s Syndrome After Abortion Reform in New York State (1978):

According to the article…

“…Trends indicate that abortion reform may have made a significant contribution to the reduction of severe mental retardation… The decline in Down’s syndome in New York State cannot be attributed entirely to the abortion reform, although the abortion reform was effective in reducing the incidence of severe mental retardation.”

Would You Abort a Disabled Child?

“…Prenatal tests exist for other conditions such as Down’s syndrome. On learning their fetus could have this intellectual disability, between 70 and 85% of pregnant women in the US choose abortion”

No surprise that the US government continues to fund and promote the arrogant the pseudo-science of eugenics, considering the fact that “American scientists played a vanguard role in the eugenics movement” that terrorized the world’s most vulnerable throughout the 20th century, and beyond…

Dark Chapter of American History:
U.S. Court Battle Over Forced Sterilization:

As the article also notes…

“By the early 1930s, some 30 American states had adopted eugenics laws. Most of them were modeled after the law which Harry H. Laughlin had drafted for the state of Virginia in 1924. That legislation found emulators outside the United States too. For example, it served Germany’s National Socialists as a model for their 1933 ‘Law for Protection Against Genetically Defective Offspring,’ on the basis of which at least 400,000 men and women were forcibly sterilized. More than 200,000 handicapped or allegedly handicapped people were also murdered by the Nazis. The University of Heidelberg was apparently so grateful to eugenicist Laughlin that it awarded him an honorary doctorate in 1936 for his ‘services on behalf of racial hygiene’.”

The Horrifying American Roots of Nazi Eugenics:

Eugenics and the Nazis — the California Connection:

The US government wasn’t about to let all of that “impressive” Nazi “science” they helped to inspire go to waste, so they helped many Third Reich war criminals escape to South America, and gave them the means to continue their “great work”…

And, this is precisely where top-ranking Nazi “doctor” Mengele found sanctuary, along with a cushy little job, where he could continue to hone his skills for eliminating “undesirables”…

Josef Mengele an Abortionist, Argentine Files Suggest:

Abortion and eugenics are inextricably linked together, and it is impossible to deny their dependence upon each other. Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, for example, was a dangerously genocidal eugenicist, eager to eliminate what she referred to as “defectives,” and the “unfit.” She labeled them as “human weeds,” threatening the “flowers of American civilization.”

What Margaret Sanger Really Said About Eugenics and Race:

(hint: in 1921, she wrote that, “the most urgent problem today is how to limit and discourage the over-fertility of the mentally and physically defective”)

In 1923, Sanger wrote…

“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.”
