Planned Parenthood is a government-sponsored program of genocide through the use of sterilization and abortion. Abortion has become an epidemic that crosses gender, race, economic and political lines. However, Planned Parenthood is the spearhead of a national population control policy founded on the principle and practice of selective breeding. A policy that targets low income and minority communities, and those deemed unfit or undesirable, who can be anyone from the handicapped to girls simply because the parents preferred a boy.
Planned Parenthood was founded in 1916 by Margaret Sanger, who coined the term “birth control”. Sanger was also a staunch advocate of eugenics by society. According to Wikipedia,
“As part of her efforts to promote birth control, Sanger found common cause with proponents of eugenics, believing that they both sought to assist the race toward the elimination of the unfit. Sanger was a proponent of negative eugenics, which aims to improve human hereditary traits through social intervention by reducing reproduction by those considered unfit.”
These “social interventions”, used in practicing eugenics, such as prevention (birth control), sterilization, and abortion, as means for population control, was a practice later adopted by the Nazis. The clinics were created to eliminate the colored races, which Sanger considered a burden on society. In fact, 70% of abortion clinics are in Hispanic, African American and poorer communities where the population is considered economically nonviable. The government perpetuates a lack of hope that destroys a person’s self-image and preys upon their difficult circumstance by encouraging them to see abortion as a good thing. Today, there are many defenders of Sanger and Planned Parenthood’s legacy. If there’s any doubt, watch the two and a half minute video, Margaret Sanger’s Negro Project and Barrack Obama’s Planned Parenthood, then read Sanger in her own words:
“Our failure to segregate morons who are increasing and multiplying…demonstrates our foolhardy and extravagant sentimentalism …Charity encourage the healthier and more normal sections of the world to shoulder the burden of unthinking and indiscriminate fecundity of others; which brings with it, as I think the reader must agree, a dead weight of human waste. Instead of decreasing and aiming to eliminate the stocks that are most detrimental to the future of the race and the world, it tends to render them to a menacing degree dominant … We are paying for, and even submitting to, the dictate of an ever-increasing, unceasingly spawning class of human beings who never should have been born at all.” (Read more of Sanger's writing..)
It is not the intent of this article to promote anger, but awareness. As a people we cannot hide an ugly truth, but must first be accountable in order to seek genuine change and unity. Unfortunately the current climate of divisiveness in our country is at an all time high being fueled by the news media and it’s modern “Jerry Springer” like format in which talk show pundits promote anger and emotionally charged, sensationalized, often even fictitious content, in order to produce ratings. In other words, there is little to no integrity in journalism anymore and our news sources mirror the entertainment industry by luring in viewers through our natural attraction to violence, sex, greed and wrath. To degrade, vilify, and even curse our own President, national leaders and authority figures has become far too commonplace and acceptable. As Christians, we should respect authority and pray for healing and revival in our nation.
“Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves” (Romans 13:1-2 NKJV).
That being said, as believers in The Word, we are also called to make a choice between God and the world. The ugly dispute over legalized abortion, the most controversial and divisive issue in our country, cannot be avoided and no one that respects The Almighty as the creator of life can stand by with their head in the sand and ignore it. Abortion is more than a tragedy; it is an American holocaust. We as a nation have legally sanctioned the taking of almost 60 million innocent lives since 1973; ten times more than the Jewish Holocaust of WW II, and we’re still counting.
The abortion issue has come back into the spotlight with the current Presidential administration’s healthcare reform and the HHS Mandate, requiring that most employers offer health insurance plans that cover sterilization and contraception, including abortion inducing drugs. Although President Obama, the Democratic Party and the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services are furthering abortion measures with the new policy, the blame is hardly all on the shoulders of any one President or political party, and we as a nation can share in the responsibility.
Since 1973, there have been many years in which each party has controlled both the Congress and Senate together. In addition, there have even been multiple years in which each party controlled not only the Congress and Senate together, but the Presidency as well. For some time we’ve even had a majority of Chief Justices sitting on the Supreme Court, nominated by Presidents from the Republican Party that claims abortion is against it’s platform. Yet, in four decades there has been little to no effort as a nation to stop abortion or overturn Roe vs. Wade.
To put it plainly, there is little difference between the Democratic Party that supports abortion and the Republican Party that claims to be against it, but does nothing to change things and allows abortion to continue unabated. Regardless of the Party in control, the results have remained consistent. Since we reached over one million abortions annually in 1975, the number has remained between 1.2 and 1.6 million per year.
It is awful to think of the days of self induced and back alley abortions and all the nightmares that come with it. However, for those that go against God’s will, and try to take an innocent life, there will be suffering. Men will not only share in God’s judgment for their part, but as head of the family, appointed under the authority of God, men will be held more responsible (Ephesians 5:23).
To those who’ve ever played any part in an abortion, this is not all written for the sake of anyone to live under condemnation, but to the contrary. We as God’s children must know the truth of our sins, in order to confess it and repent. Then, not only does scripture tell us we’re forgiven, but it’s forgotten and we can put the sin and guilt out of our mind and not let the Enemy hold us in bondage over it (Isaiah 43:25). God can even use that testimony to save lives both for this life and the next.
"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.." (Psalms 139:13-14 NIV).
