Soon clinics throughout the South were distributing contraceptives to Blacks and Margaret's dream of discouraging "the defective and diseased elements of humanity' from their 'reckless and irresponsible swarming and spawning" was at last being fulfilled. From Margaret Sanger, The Pivot of Civilization (New York: Brentano's, 1922) 108.

How about one of several meetings with the KKK? Sanger’s 1938 autobiography, pages 366-67,” Always to me any aroused group was a good group, and therefore I accepted an invitation to talk to the women’s branch of the Ku Klux Klan at Silver Lake, New Jersey…After three hours I was summoned at last and entered a bright corridor filled with wraps. As someone came out of the hall I saw through the door dim figures parading with banners and illuminated crosses. I waited another twenty minutes. It was warmer and I did not mind so much. Eventually the lights were switched on, the audience seated itself, and I was escorted to the platform, was introduced, and began to speak.”

And this quote from National Public Radio. “She also talked about birth control being used to facilitate "the process of weeding out the unfit [and] of preventing the birth of defectives." www.npr.org...

the idea that if a women doesn't want to get pregnant, she should just keep her legs crossed never did work out too well, did it??

Nope. And frankly, sex is enjoyable. Anyone should be able to enjoy sex without fear of unwanted pregnancy.


people should really take a look at how the poor and unwanted were treated in the early part of the 20th century with it's poor houses here and work houses in england and realize that women being given control over their own reproduction via birth control probably played a large part in seeing these atrocities vanish.


This is true on a global scale. When women have the opportunity to be educated and to be able to have income for themselves (work) and when they have access to good medical care for themselves and their children, they choose to have fewer children. This is one of the things undone by defunding "Let Girls Learn" which helped girls in poor areas of the world get to school.


ya, we still have foster homes, and we still have children who have no foster home to be place into, and we still have children waiting for adoption, but it's nothing like the horrors of the past.

It's still a pretty sad situation. Only a small percentage get a good foster home and good parents.

I'm still trying to figure how you can have the title of Planned Parenthood and do abortions. Where does parenthood come into this? You're planning on being a parent but not right now. Hmmmmm

Contraceptives and Rhythm Methods have the same reasoning, many times.

They already have been receiving record numbers of donations in response to the GOP's shenanigans for months now.

If other people want to support them, that is their business.

I don't want my tax dollars to be used for killing babies.

Soldiers are doing their job in the national interest. You would not have filled your home with lithium powered devices and very thing light weight screens would it not be for soldiers making the ultimate sacrifice around the globe, and are targeting specific criminal elements in the area of operation. Babies are quite literally the most vulnerable demographic of ANY species. Terminating a pregnancy is the literal killing of a vulnerable baby.

It was a separate discussion on an overtime bill in another thread.

On the flip side, the same people who are for abortions will describe in agonizing detail how they would torture another human being in the most horrible ways for something as simple as kicking a cat out of the way, or backhanding a begging dog.

That's awesome. Proof the government doesn't need to subsidize its operations! Well done!

Adoption of American children is too expensive and the birth parents have too many rights. This needs to be fixed as well. Most of the adopted children I know are either foreign or adopted by family members.

That's not how it works. PP provides medical services to the poor. Donations help but tax dollars are king. Do you also want to take away Medicare/Medicaid and monies for the disabled? You know, the downtrodden and unfortunate? Do you have no empathy because you feel like you're paying for everyone? Are you just as outspoken against gov't waste, giving billions to the already bloated military/MIC, and corporate welfare, you know tax cuts for the rich?

Or do you just attack the poor and disabled?

They are able to offer abortions at a lower costs since their other costs are subsidized by tax dollars. They don't keep separate ledgers and accounts. It all goes to the same pot. It's indirectly funded by tax dollars.

Talk about ignorance.

PP survived off of private donations for more years than it's been subsidized by tax payer money. Yes, I am, actually. Except for corporate welfare/tax cuts for the rich. Corporations can provide more jobs if their taxes are cut. They are in it to grow and earn higher evaluations. More growth = more jobs.

I'm not attacking anyone at all. Planned Parenthood will still be here. You've already stated that donations are through the roof since it'll be defunded. They'll need to make a few cuts but it'll be privately funded like it was for 40 some years.

Now if we could turn this momentum around and get all of our troops home to debloat the military budget that'd be a nice change as well.

Oh no, trickle down economics is a fairy tale that never worked and it never will. It's all just a scam for the wealthy to con you out of your tax dollars. When they don't pay their fair share the burden is pushed onto the rest of America and that's why the middle class has been suffering for decades with no end in sight. Stop buying into the BS!

PP hasn't been defunded but the GOP and their ilk continue to try but federal judges continue to stop them. They can't rely alone on donations to support their facilities providing medical care to the poor. Donations are a big help but they need a steady income known as taxes.

Oh really? You actually know the costs of abortions or did you just read that nonsense on some conservative blog and parrot it? I think that's what going on here.

Tax dollars do not fund abortions. That is a fact. You're the ignorant one.

Exactly! Why should the federal government have anything to do with liberals' over breeding?

Defund it all I say! What the Usa NEEDS is a stronger defense against rouge nations like North korea and little Kimmy.
