Planned Parenthood has tried to paint itself as an organization which prides itself on providing women’s healthcare and health services, with a “mission” to champion women’s rights. Many feminists praise Planned Parenthood and seem to believe that one of those indisputable “rights” for many women is the “right” to be able to terminate a pregnancy at will.
(Or, as they like to put it, “My Body, My Choice”. The same thing, just in more elegant words.).
The pro-choice community will argue that the fetus has no value while still at its early stages of development (before the first trimester). However, a moral argument would be that, while the fetus is still in development, be it 3 weeks or 3 months of pregnancy, it still counts as a human life with human sentience. And just as important, the ability to feel pain just as any living being outside of the womb.
Here’s a fact that many pro-choice activists and even Planned Parenthood itself seem to be conveniently forgetting or leaving out on purpose: the founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, was an avid supporter of eugenics.
What is Eugenics?
Eugenics was a pseudo-scientific belief which stated that people who had certain “good” physical characteristics should breed in order to pass on those characteristics to their children, and that those who lacked them should not, in order to create a “perfect” ethnic group.
If this sounds familiar to you, that is because Eugenics was the movement which most notably served as inspiration for the Holocaust in Nazi Germany.
Sanger even wanted to restrict immigration in the United States.
If this doesn’t convince you, here’s a passage from a speech called “My Way To Peace” by Margaret Sanger:
“The main objects of the Population Congress would be:[…] keep the doors of Immigration closed to the entrance of certain aliens whose condition is known to be detrimental to the stamina of the race, such as feeble-minded, idiots, morons, insane, syphiletic, epileptic, criminal, professional prostitutes, and others in this class barred from entrance by the Immigration Laws of 1924.”
But that’s not all, here’s what she said about how to make that happen:
“Open the gates of the U.S.A. to those countries whose inhabitants have the inherent talents and national characteristics desirable, eliminating entirely those countries whose subjects have already been difficult to assimilate.”
So, basically what she wanted was to effectively ban immigration from certain countries, and sterilize certain ethnic groups in America.
And, if that didn’t work, she had another idea, which was basically forced labor:
There would be farm lands and homesteads where these segregated persons would be taught to work under competent instructors for the period of their entire lives.
So, to put it in a simpler way, Planned Parenthood’s original mission was to effectively reduce the number of people in certain ethnic groups within America. Most notably, those with “undesirable” traits. And if that didn’t work, just send them into forced labor camps for the rest of their lives.
Now that I have given you the facts, here’s my perspective on the subject:
I have no problem with women who want to feel good about themselves (or men, for that matter), people who believe that they can do anything that they want if they put forth any effort in doing so.
If you want to pursue a career in science, economics or any other field, you may do so. If you want to be an actor or actress, go for it.
I frankly don’t think that those life choices are mine or anyone else’s to judge.
But if those decisions involve taking a life, whether in the womb, out in the world, or even in a Petri dish for that matter, then I will firmly oppose.
Now, some will say something like “Oh, you’re just a mysogynist”, or “you’re a sexist, and part of the patriarchy “.
No, I’m just not in favor of taking a life, neither before nor after conception. Especially not when it’s in regards to the life of a child; if that was in a military campaign, you would be charged and arrested as a war criminal.
And those who are in favor of abortion and against gun rights and want to protect other American citizens are, in my opinion, either ill-informed or just hypocrites.
Because we use guns to protect other people and ourselves from assault, robbery, etc. We use them to preserve our lives and other people’s lives.
Although, yes, various criminals do get their hands on them, but that’s a logical fact; crime will continue to exist whether or not laws exist, what makes it different is that we at least have a chance of defending ourselves and preventing more of these crimes as long as we’re able to carry weapons to do so.
But, abortion serves no beneficial purpose; in fact, many women have been reported to suffer various health complications after having abortions.
Originally, my theory was that Planned Parenthood and Eugenics had some sort of connection at some point. As if the company was some sort of disguise for Eugenics research: and I was correct, in a certain sense.
And I now share these results with you, the reader.
I encourage everyone reading this to share this with their friends and family, and spread this unspoken truth about Planned Parenthood.
I have done my part, now I leave the rest to my fellow readers; which is to spread this message.
