UPDATE 9/21/20: Examining the legacy of recently deceased Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, one is abruptly reminded of Margaret Sanger and her similar (almost identical) views on population control, thinning out “undesirables,” less palatably known as eugenics. Her own legacy “baby”, Planned Parenthood, has quietly distanced itself.
ORIGINAL POST 7/24/15: Examining the pointedly racist writings of longtime Leftist darling Margaret Sanger should be a real eye-opener for millions who unquestioningly accept abortion as a “right,” a given of modern civilized life. In Sanger’s case, she was a militant Fascist when Fascism was all the rage among the intellectual Progressive Elite of the West: H.G. Wells, G. B. Shaw, W.E.B. DuBois, Lincoln Steffens, Charles Beard….
For further enlightenment regarding the fascinating history of Fascism before it became exclusively associated with Hitler & Mussolini, read Jonah Goldberg’s “Liberal Fascism,” particularly pp. 270-274 on Margaret Sanger. Take special note of her enthusiastic call for “more children from the fit, less from the unfit-that is the chief issue of birth control.” (The Pivot of Civilization, 1922)
This Hitler-esque sentiment is echoed by fellow Master Planner H.G. Wells in his introduction to the same book: “We want fewer and better children…and we cannot make the better social life and the world peace we are determined to make, with the ill-bred, ill-trained swarms of inferior citizens that you inflict on us.”
Behold (and beware) the intellectual Elite’s idea of progress, as in “Progressivism.” And take seriously Rush Limbaugh’s much-maligned and misunderstood term “FemiNazi” which he has consistently defined as the particular Feminist view of abortion that raises it to the level of a personal accomplishment, a Holy Sacrament, a statement of liberation, spitting in the face of the Church and conventional morality, the ultimate in Female Rights. The notorious scandal now enveloping Planned Parenthood for marketing unborn baby organs on camera brings an undeniable, gruesome accuracy to the term “FemiNazi.” But Sanger got there first, beginning nearly a century ago.
The question of abortion is one of the most consistently controversial in our world. There are those who say Absolutely Never, and there are those who says On Demand!
If the guiding touchstone is to be the preservation and protection of innocent human life, things become clearer, but not without questions. In the instance of a child conceived by rape, does the innocent female victim’s life take precedence over the baby’s? What about the instance of an ill pregnant woman who will certainly die if pregnancy continues?
If there is no serious contemplation of the morality or ethics involved, no pause, no guiding touchstones other than convenience and advancing a political agenda, as in the case of Sanger and her modern FemiNazi descendants, we have the modern abortion holocaust. A done deal. No debate, “settled,” like Climate Change…until the logical, predictable consequences (abortion factories, selective eugenics, harvesting/marketing aborted baby organs) demand a second look.
