Over 90% of what Planned Parenthood does is eugenics!!!!

not intended to be a factual statement

Even without Trump, this GOP primary is going to be one for the ages. I can see myself teaching a classes on this in 30 years.

I'm pretty sure that Rick Santorum is full of shiat.
But unlike him, I would be right.
 
2011-04-28 05:23:22 PM  
Well, it was started by Margaret Sanger and she was big on Eugenics.

/just sayin

Not just shiat, it's a frothy mixture of shiat, lube and semen.

Her is what she said on Santorum's argument.

"The campaign for birth control is not merely of eugenic value, but is practically identical with the final aims of eugenics.... We are convinced that racial regeneration, like individual regeneration, must come 'from within.' That is, it must be autonomous, self-directive, and not imposed from without."

We maintain that a woman possessing an adequate knowledge of her reproductive functions is the best judge of the time and conditions under which her child should be brought into the world. We further maintain that it is her right, regardless of all other considerations, to determine whether she shall bear children or not, and how many children she shall bear if she chooses to become a mother... Only upon a free, self-determining motherhood can rest any unshakable structure of racial betterment."

Clearly, this rebuts Santorum's claims. She did however propose forced sterilization of idiots, which might explain why she gives Gary dyspepsia.

Well, Gat, eugenics is anything that prevents Jesus from making babies. Condoms, pulling out, masturbation? Eugenics.

I certainly hope they and other organisations do. As if society needs more unproductive and under-productive meatsacks. We used to sterilise the retarded and other presumably hereditarilly undesirables until the Nazis had to go and ruin the practice for everyone.

Want welfare? Get tied. Retarded? Get tied. Have serious birth defects that are going to keep you on the dole? Get tied. Third generation addict? Say it with me.

If things keep going down the path they are now, in 30 years learning will be a terrorist action, and teachers will be in Gitmo.

Anyway, since only heathen liburul socialists get abortions, wouldn't it be best for the conservatives to let the people who want abortions have them, so that only fine, upstanding conservative children were born?

I always wondered why conservatives don't support making abortion illegal for only white people. That serves their base's wants.

I actually just did a little bit of research on the word "eugenics," spent some time diving into what people who know about these things call the antomology of the word, and what I've learned is very interesting. See, the word derivates from ancient Greece, which spoke Greek, and was actually made by putting two words together. There are referred to by antomologists as the "root words." So eugenics has two root words, like I said: "eu," which in ancient Greek meant "good;" and "genos," which once meant "birth." So the antomological root words of eugenics are "good birth." Which means, according to my findings, that eugenics is anything having to do with anything that causes good births. Obstetricians, midwives, birthing coaches. Even women who are selective about the men they choose to breed with are practicing eugenics. This is horrifying. I had no idea it was so widespread.

The placement of clinics and the targeted advertising may be a vestige of what Santorum called Planned Parenthood's "horrific origins," but he said much of the "poisonous" nature of the organization has remained even as it has claimed to, he said, "transform over time." ...

Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger's support for eugenics gets a lot of play among anti-abortion advocates. Like Santorum did today, they claim that the Planned Parenthood of the modern day has kept at least some focus on cleansing society of "undesirables."


The campaign for birth control is not merely of eugenic value, but is practically identical with the final aims of eugenics. ~ Margaret Sanger

Before eugenicists and others who are laboring for racial betterment can succeed, they must first clear the way for Birth Control. Like the advocates of Birth Control, the eugenicists, for instance, are seeking to assist the race toward the elimination of the unfit. Both are seeking a single end but they lay emphasis upon different methods. ~ Margaret Sanger

Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race. ~ Margaret Sanger

Would you knowingly have a child with a person who has a genetic disease that would be passed down? No? Then you practice Eugenics.

Would you knowingly have a child with a person who is mentally retarded? No? Then you practice Eugenics.

Would you knowingly have a child with a person who is physically very weak and gets sick easily? No? Then you practice Eugenics.

Now, Would you knowingly have a child with a person who is very smart, strong and beautiful? Yes? Then you practice Eugenics.

99% of you all are firm believers in and practice Eugenics.

Bevets, seriously, so what? As was pointed out earlier, Henry Ford was an early supporter of Hitler, so does that make me a Nazi if I drive a Ford? If I work for Ford? If I'm the CEO of Ford?

Seriously, enough lame quotes, tell us, in your own words, the connection between Sanger's words then and PP now. And if you believe eugenics is still part of Planned Parenthood, provide direct evidence, not some mamby-pamby "pretty sure" BS.

Go ahead, I'd love to hear it.

/remember: your own words!

Marcus Aurelius: Rich people don't need Planned Parenthood.


There you go.

I am forever grateful for Planned Parenthood. When I was a poor student, I went there to get my birth control pills. (This was back in the '70's). I paid $3 for a months supply. Also had a free check up, which I otherwise would never have been able to have had.

It is a needed organization that provides necessary health care to women.
To say PP is all about abortions, et al, is smug stupidity.

Rick Santorum made his children play with a miscarriage and has said the Catholic sex scandal- which happened all over the world and has been going on for decades- happened because Massachusetts legalized gay marriage.

In other words, Rick Santorum makes as much sense as the crazy guy on my bus today, how got REALLY mad at a tree for looking at him funny, and ran off the bus and started yelling at said tree.
