Planned Parenthood’s “Black Genocide”

At a Catholic Conference (out of respect for my parents, I am not a Catholic)  a couple months ago I realized that there was a table selling DVDs on Planned Parenthood‘s “Black Genocide.” Now, I was not about to pay $15.00 for a DVD accusing  Planned Parenthood of such a terrible thing, because the money would end up in what I felt were corrupt hands.

This weekend I remembered the stand selling the DVDs and decided to research and post about the accusation that Planned Parenthood was the Adolf Hitler of the 21st century.Here are some of the key points I pulled of their website,

Personhood is always redefined to exclude the intended victim class. In 1935, the Nuremberg Laws codified the exclusion of Jews from German society. The next year, the Reichsgericht (Germany’s highest court) essentially legalized the Holocaust. Cartoons routinely depicted Jews as pigs, dogs, rats, and other vermin. In 1857, the U.S. Supreme Court declared Blacks “…a subordinate and inferior class of beings…” in [Dred] Scott v. Sandford.Black slaves were often assigned diminutive names, such as “Mingo,” that were normally reserved for pets. In 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court found that “the word ‘person,’ as used in the [Constitution], does not include the unborn.” Today, unwanted children are spoken of in dehumanizing terms: “embryo,” “fetus,” “products of conception,” etc.
Genocide often framed in the language of “choice.” The Nazis asserted that the racial make-up of the German nation was an internal matter for the German people to decide. They also emphasized Hitler’s choice, his “Will to Power,” as a Nazi propaganda film put it. In the Senatorial debates of 1858, Stephen Douglas said that he was personally opposed to slavery but that each state should have the right to choose whether to be a slave state or a free state. Pro-abortion advocates argue that if pro-lifers don’t like abortions, they shouldn’t have them. Abortion is not mandated; it is a matter of personal “choice.”
Victim class tends to be people who have what we want or get in our way. Eastern Europeans owned land that the Nazis wanted forlebensraum (“living space”) for the German people. Jews owned material wealth that Nazis wanted for themselves. Blacks owned the work product that slave owners desired for themselves. The loss of this uncompensated work product would deprive slave owners of material wealth they desired to maintain. Killing babies is often justified based on the desire to acquire material wealth and /or maintain lifestyle. Babies get in the way of career development, women’s rights, sexual freedom, etc.
Victim class is often seen as a “disease” on society or as diseased themselves. “Parasites” and “bacilli” were words used by Nazis to describe Jews and others targeted for extermination. Benjamin Rush, a leading American scientist who personally opposed slavery, speculated that all blacks were really leprous, diseased, whites in need of a cure. In his medical textbook Abortion Practice, Warren Hern analogizes the unwanted, unborn child to a disease, the treatment of choice for which is abortion.
Resources are inadequate to care for intended victim class if they are allowed to live. The Nazis justified killing “useless eaters” based on the fact that they were using up resources needed by the German people. Pro-slavery advocates justified the continuation of slavery because they said the slaves, if emancipated, could not take care of themselves and would be a drain on society’s resources. Pro-abortion advocates attempt to justify abortion by stating that there are inadequate resources to care for all unwanted babies if they are not killed by abortion.


Please leave any comments on your stance on this claim. I do not want to take any side because it seems to me like something the Tea Party would start to “prove” they aren’t racist. If this is true, however, I do not want to be a denier of such an atrocity.

    No worries… like any such treatise that claims to be based on logic, and uses statistical or legal analogies, they are false from the first premises they assume. Rhetoric is NOT argument, and statistics may be found to support ANY concept. This type of nonsense will bury itself in its own vitriol, and isn’t worth any further thought than that…. just blowing smoke, as it were…. giving it attention just prolongs the useless discussion with them, for they will not accept any evidence that is contradictory to their chosen attitudes…..ignore them, and they will eventually crawl back under their rocks…..

    • Ethan Hill says:

      That is what I was assuming. It is almost amusing how ridiculous that assertion is!

      • gigoid says:

        Aye, and that is one of the key methods to help spot such egregious nonsense. They make outrageous claims, the more outrageous the better, because they know the media will then blow it up more… on the “squeaky wheel gets the grease” principle… sad and pathetic, if one considers it much, but, best to just let such stuff fly on by, and find something more challenging to the mind and spirit than wiping mud off your clothing from their spew….

    • Mike@UsneakydevilU says:

      As a black male, I must say, this response is insane!! What total disregard for PP historically and factually foundation. FACT: Planned Parenthoods founder Margaret Sanger was a racist and sought to “weed out all the unwanted of out society…, blacks”. Do you not care for TRUTH or is it your own reality, your own liberal agenda that overrides commonsense and sanity? What cluelessness!

      • gigoid says:


        Though to me the word insane is not necessarily an epithet, I still feel I must point out, insane as it may sound to you, evidence of past discrimination does not prove racism in the present. The modern version of PP is far different, and has a different agenda, from its original version.

        The most important function that PP performs in today’s society is that of distributing information, not in encouraging abortion. Abortion is presented as one of the many choices that should be available to women, of any race….

        The personal characteristics of the followers of any organization are not the truest indicator of its relative truth. And merely capitalizing the word ‘truth’ does not increase its degree of rightness, any more than shouting the word will convince others of its accuracy….

        I do appreciate your viewpoint, and cannot hold it against you, for all its vitriol, as you have ample historical reason to mistrust such organizations. I must however, agree to disagree with your conclusions, which do not seem to consider evidence that contradicts your own viewpoint… but, discussion is what makes such articles of value…

  2. And let’s remember- there are very strict rules, regulations, inspections, and reviews to prevent PP from using government money to fund abortion. And yet the right is continually slashing funding. Which then cuts access to contraception. Which results in the poor (and often less educated- who already have a higher then avg birth rate) having even more pregnancies. And of course, the right also continually slashes the social safety net. So these people that didn’t want to get pregnant in the first place now have even less hope of being able to afford to raise a child.’

    And of course the right loves to say adoptio is an option. But just look at the current situation. Minority children are far less likely to be adopted, and are far more likely to be in foster care or wards of the state until they are kicked out at 18. The numbers on those that will end up dead, in jail, or living in poverty and recreating the viscious circle is staggering. Now imagine the tens of thousands more children added to this (not to mention the increased costs that would be stolen from all the services already discussed…

    • cmunal says:

      If they didn’t wan’t to get pregnant why did they have sex? Why am I punished by having to pay for all these social programs when people need to take responsibility for themselves.

    Really, folks, are we going to deny history for political correctness. Please I invite you all to do your own research in the Margaret Sanger and Eugenics. Perhaps you would like to hear her speech she gave at a KKK rally. Yes it did happen. (Here in her own words).

    Perhaps here are some quotes to ponder from Sanger.

    “…human weeds,’ ‘reckless breeders,’ ‘spawning… human beings who never should have been born.” Margaret Sanger, Pivot of Civilization, referring to immigrants and poor people

    “More children from the fit, less from the unfit — that is the chief aim of birth control.” Birth Control Review, May 1919, p. 12

    “The most merciful thing that a large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.” Margaret Sanger, Women and the New Race (Eugenics Publ. Co., 1920, 1923)

    But I would invite you to do your own research. Never ask the blogosphere and then accept what folks here say, without doing your own research. This is one that cannot be avoided, Planned Parenthood was, by all acounts, an attempt at Eugenics.

    Don’t know about Eugenics, research that to. First read the “Descent of Man” by Charles Darwin. Then do some research into the work of his son Leonard.

    Knowing something goes beyond being told, please, please, go beyond what you read in blogs and even beyond what you read in text books, but more importantly, go beyond what society, the politically correct society tells you, so far that you might actually stumble on the truth.

    • Mike@UsneakydevilU says:

      tobeforgiven, thanks for inserting some sanity. The ignorance of some is killing me! many are basing their morality on false BS. Planned Parenthood was set up to pluck “human weeds” and now they are seen as this noble, womens rights organization. Man EVIL is definately at work, and the meek fall for prey all the time. Here’s another link to the Eugenics queen, Sanger:

  4. tobeforgiven says:

    Also please check out this link (not sure if this is the video you were talking about but it is worth checking out)

  5. Sir Ian says:

    I think I just got an aneurism out of sheer stupidity. Do they really compare abortion to … my goodness.

    • tobeforgiven says:

      The original post was talking about the historical source for planned parenthood, which was (as is Historically proven), the Eugenics movement. Not many would deny that the Eugenics movement was anything short of Genocide.

      Please, refute this, if you can, but don’t call historical evidence “Sheer Stupidity” just because it does not fall within the “Politically Correct” frame work.

      It seems we have thrown this part of our history out the window, and now it has been lost. But it is so important for us to know this part of our history. But we ignore it because we don’t like the links to Darwin or to Galton (who is still esteemed) or to Sanger.

      But it happened, we cannot choose to leave out history because we don’t like it.

      • Sir Ian says:

        Abortion doesn’t deal with persons. We do this not because of ideological reasons but well because clumps of cells aren’t in fact : persons. I was talking about abortion specifically, not planned parenthood. I don’t know much of the second.

        To say abortion is murder and lots of abortions are genocide when your intent is to wipe a ethnic minority is ridiculous because the word murder and genocide itself contain a false premise. Yadayadayadayada

      • tobeforgiven says:


        The original post is speaking of Planned Parenthood.
        So lets now look at what is Genocide
        “the deliberate and systematic destruction, in whole or in part, of an ethnic, racial, religious, or national group”

        (Funk, T. Marcus (2010). Victims’ Rights and Advocacy at the International Criminal Court. Oxford, England: Oxford University Press.)

        Now as you will read from the links I have shown above you will see that the Eugenics movement had the intention of using birth control and sterilization to get rid of unwanted races, ethnicities, populations, and social classes. They sought to destroy people groups, by limiting the ability to breed. Margret Sanger and Planned Parenthood came out of the Eugenics, again read the above links.

        Please, I am waiting to be refuted on the intention of Planned Parenthood.

        Perhaps the host of this page, or gigoid, or yourself. Please give evidence!!!

  6. Mike@UsneakydevilU says:

    gigoid,since 1973, the year of the Supreme Court Decision Roe vs. Wade, 13 million (13,000,000) African American lives have been lost to abortion. The CDC reports that of the approximately 4000 abortions that are performed daily in the United States, 1452 of them are performed on African American women and their pre-born children. This means that although African Americans represent only 12% of the population of the United States, we account for 35% of the abortions performed in this country. TRUTH! FACT!

    Our popoulation growth is stagnate!!!

    Say and write whatever, I can’t discuss foolish thought when I see the destruction first hand. The black picture doesn’t matter to you, only the liberal dream.

  7. The scary thing about the ‘right to choose’ is not merely the racial implications. Just look at China, where gender selection has created a huge imbalance between male and female populations. When humans play ‘god’, society suffers.

  8. tobeforgiven says:

    While moral truth can be considered relative. Historical truth, which was what this post was trying to get at, cannot be considered relative. It either is or is not true. We cannot change history because of how things are currently. I agree that those working at Planned Parenthood are not all racists, but the post was asking about the historical foundations of the organization, which are racist.

    It is interesting that in a post modern reletivistic society, that we can now call any historical accounting vitriol.

  9. It’s funny when they use the word “genocide” when it’s not targeted exclusively at black people, nor is it a population-reducing method, but rather a baby-postponing strategy. But of course, people jump all over everything if it’ll get people angry.

  10. Sir Ian says:

    I wasn’t talking about eugenics. I was talking about abortion in general and comparing it to murder. Of course forcing people to not have babies is bad. The whole fucking point is about the CHOICE to have an abortion because clumps of cells are not persons yet. That was my point. You haven’t adressed it and I have no intention of going down the silly lane. It will cost to much time.

    • tobeforgiven says:

      That is not the point of this post. It seems that the original post was about the origins and history of Planned Parenthood. It was not about specifically abortion but the hidden agenda behind the founding of Planned Parenthood. Which was Eugenics, although this agenda was not hidden in the beginning.

      All I have done is present historical facts to present a case that says indeed Planned Parenthood was hand in hand with the Eugenics in committing genocide though population and birth control. You have called this argument silly, stupid. Others here stated that it was mere rhetoric and vitriol. Yet, no one has presented any case to the contrary.

  11. tobeforgiven says:

    Alright buddy. The reason I come to this blog (kudos) to the host, is that the conversations are great. Most of the time these conversations involve real information.
    See, we have this awesome opportunity to learn and to teach on sites like this.
    But you have to use your mind enough to do your research and not get angry when your presented with information that goes outside your ever expanding (at least we hope it is expanding) mind.
    Saying something like that just makes it sound like you, in fact have no desire to learn anything.
    That is why I keep saying, prove me wrong. I want to learn just as much.

    I must say, I have never sworn at an atheist. I have never told one they are going to hell. I have never said they are damned. And yet it is strange that I have had several conversations end in the same way as this one has.

    • Sir Ian says:

      We don’t swear at you because you believe in god. I don’t care about it. Just like I don’t care about the whole eugenics issue. If I’d want to talk about the issue I’d have to book up but I don’t so basically what you’re doing is responding to people about things they’ve already made clear was not their argument and jizz on and on about it just so you can claim the moral high-ground and show how knowledgable you claim to be on the subject. I repeat it’s *not* because you’re religious, it *is* because you’re acting like a self-righteous prick.

  12. tobeforgiven says:

    I have not spoke on morality as of yet, nor did I mention I was a Christian until this last comment (I don’t believe). All I have done is to present citations. I have done this in an effort to have a good conversation.
    What I am asking for is proof, historical evidence, that PP did not have Eugenics in mind when the organization was begun.

    Why did you comment so definitively on the subject, in saying it was “sheer stupidity” if you did not want to talk about this issue, and if you had not read up on the issue?

    I don’t think this conversation with Ian is worth having. I would still like to have some proof in opposition to what I am saying, for the sake of conversation, as this is a good one.

    I’m not interested in having conversations with folks who are not open to conversation, who revert, instead to attacks. Please.

  13. Founder of Planned Parenthood has ties to Eugenics movement= true. Planned Parenthood, however does more than birth control, and abortions, they also provide women’s and men health care. This site is being pushed and funded by pro-lifers. The reason the abortion rate among African-Americans is high is the same reason HIV infection rate is high among African Americans and if you can make the basic correlation between those two statistics I feel sorry for you. Planned Parenthood has origins as a Eugenics movement but like many things it has changed. People ask why do they have to pay for the people who refuse to use condoms because if you aren’t paying for the abortion, you will be paying for the welfare for those children. Then if you say you don’t want to pay for abortion either, you will be paying asinine healthcare premiums because when homeless, which is what many people would be without welfare, go to the emergency they can’t be refused treatment, but they also can’t pay which will drive everyone’s premiums up.

    Man, it is apparent this is a teen’s blog…lol. Reminds me of my kids, when they were kids. Keep seeking the truth and I’ll pray you find it one day and don’t for one second believe you already have. In the words of Saint John Baptiste Vianney, “Beware If You Have No Temptations.” You should be exceptionally careful in public son. Your actions have eternal ramifications.
