It was Margaret Sanger who laid the foundation for today’s liberal social agenda that has left a legacy of anguish, confusion, pain, and death during Planned Parenthood’s century in business. Their legacy of “birth control” is one of radical feminism, rebellion against God, racism, and eugenics that in recent years has expanded to include abortion on demand and sexual experimentation leading to brokenness, depression, regret, and worse.

What Adolf Hitler did to millions of Jews through eugenics and sterilization, Planned Parenthood founder, Margaret Sanger has dwarfed by pioneering a movement leading to the abortion of over one hundred million babies in the United States since the 1920s. Sadly, most people are ignorant of this horrible history leading to ideas such as population control and euthanasia. Proud promoter of eugenics and racism, Margaret Sanger is celebrated today by most feminists and liberals. So what’s the truth behind this dark history?

Ninety-four. Remember this number. A baby is aborted at a Planned Parenthood facility somewhere in America every 94 seconds. In that same amount of time, Planned Parenthood receives over $1,100 in federal funding. That equals more than twelve taxpayer dollars a second and allows them to abort over 912 lives every day. How did it get to the point in America where we kill our own and call it a choice? It didn’t happen overnight, but an abortion is committed – Every 94 seconds…

…In her book The Pivot of Civilization, Margaret Sanger mentioned “constructive eugenics,” saying:

“…we are paying for and even submitting to the dictates of an ever increasing, unceasingly spawning class of human beings who never should have been born at all…”

Reports indicate the Nazi’s were inspired by the population control movement in America in the 1920s and 30s. Planned Parenthood founder, Margaret Sanger promoted a eugenic ideology that eventually led to the gas chambers in Germany. A truth seeking, fair-minded person cannot read Sanger’s many writings without seeing her ungodly influence.

Sanger’s publication, The Birth Control Review, was founded in 1917 and through the years, she often published articles from socialists and eugenicists such as Ernst Rudin. Rudin (1874-1952) was a psychiatrist who worked as Adolf Hitler’s director of genetic sterilization and founded the Nazi Society for Racial Hygiene, which was Germany’s racial purity program.

…According to her own autobiography, Margaret Sanger spoke to the women’s auxiliary of the Ku Klux Klan in Silver Lake, New Jersey in 1926. Just three years later, Sanger’s “American Birth Control League” laid the groundwork for her first abortion clinics in Brooklyn and Harlem.

Margaret Sanger taught that the campaign for abortion is “practically identical with the final aim of eugenics.” In 1934, she suggested that only parents approved by government or eugenics leaders be allowed to have children, and that a strict code be enforced to stop the overproduction of children.

Sanger argued for compulsory sterilization and segregation for people with disabilities.

Until 1942, birth control and eugenics were nearly impossible to separate. Prior to World War II, Sanger was outspoken about her views on race, and used the influence of prominent New York blacks to further her cause. Margaret Sanger reiterated the need for black ministers to head up the [Negro] project…

“We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”

Is it a coincidence nearly 80% of Planned Parenthood clinics are in minority communities today?

Sanger also reasoned that by requiring a license for mothers to give birth, it would protect society from those who are unfit. Part of her “American Baby Code”…

Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Is. 40:31 

Two famous people took their own lives last week, and the same week, 850 others committed suicide in the U.S. alone. Every human being is equally valuable and created by God for a purpose, so how many more deaths will it take for us to admit we have an epidemic of hopelessness? Maybe it’s time we address it in a different way.

In less than twenty years, suicide rates in America have increased more than thirty percent in half the country; it’s on the rise in almost every state. Nearly 45,000 Americans died by suicide in 2016, and unlike the rich and famous, you will never know their names. 

TV personality Anthony Bourdain and designer Kate Spade took their own lives, and both were famous and wealthy. Why are we surprised when things of this world fail to satisfy?

Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the U.S. – and according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, it’s one of only three causes of death (Alzheimer’s, drug overdoses) that are increasing. Worldwide, someone dies by suicide every forty seconds! This is beyond tragic.

A recent CDC study suggests more than half of those who commit suicide did nothave a mental health condition. Over half. Some had problems involving relationships, finances, health, or substance abuse while others didn’t have any of these. But the end result was the same.

Books and articles have been written, studies done, articles published. I don’t mean to over simplify a very serious and complicated issue here, but as important as it is to diagnose and treat (counseling, meds, etc.) mental illness, it’s even more important to acknowledge the often ignored spiritual aspect.

There’s a reason we can be in a room full of people and still feel lonely. We’re just passing through this life, and our true citizenship is in Heaven (Philippians 3:20).

C.S. Lewis once stated:

“If we find ourselves with a desire that nothing in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that we were made for another world.”

…In a culture that has embraced narcissism and moral relativism in which there are no fixed absolutes, we end up seeking our own happiness and meaning. Most of us end up living by a morality of shallow self-fulfillment and temporary pleasure.

From the unborn, the disabled, and the elderly to the addict, the jobless, homeless, or hopeless, every human being is worthy of dignity and respect. It’s time we address the problem God’s way…

As I drove by what may be the only Planned Parenthood clinic in Wisconsin yesterday, on the sidewalk out front was a woman holding a “Defend Life” sign with a photo of a baby. God bless her and all those who have taken action, prayed, or raise awareness about the ongoing slaughter of life in mother’s wombs across the land.

Most of us know what the Bible teaches about the value of every human life. Heck, even the animal kingdom knows how to protect their own. And yet, according to our laws, eliminating life in the womb for any reason is legal and acceptable including late term, partial-birth abortion.

This regardless of the fact science and biology now confirm a baby’s heart starts beating 22 days after conception, and they can feel pain by at least 20 weeks.

But do we really know when life begins? This question was asked during legal arguments in the Supreme Court case, Roe V. Wade in 1972-73. Granted, they did not have the advances in technology we do today including sonograms and ultrasound. They did have the Word of God – and ignored it completely.

That was 45 years ago. What’s our excuse today and where is the church?

Also available are the many undercover videos of Planned Parenthood employee’s convicting admissions, so we can no longer say abortion is not pure evil being promoted as a choice, a right, and a service. The progressive media won’t touch news stories when they reflect negatively on their precious political party and the abortion industry.

In 2010 for example: “Little Shop of Horrors” Abortion Clinic Closed When Frozen Bodies of 35 Aborted Babies Were Found.” Abortion practitioners in Maryland were found guilty of murder and a host of other crimes. The good news is now the building that the former illegal business was using is now the home of a Pregnancy Center serving women with life-saving care.

These stories are out there and have been for a few decades, and they’re only shocking perhaps to Christians who have turned a blind eye to our culture of death and have knowingly gone on with their busy entertainment-filled lives. Remember abortionist and convicted serial killer, Kermit Gosnell? What about the dark history of Planned Parenthood’s Margaret Sanger?

This isn’t about politics; it’s about life and the right to be born. For years I’ve written about this battle and am thankful for those who also believe this is a pivotal moral issue in a country with a seared conscience. Some say a society is judged by how the most needy and vulnerable are treated. If this is true, we’re in a lot of trouble with our Maker.

We ignore the moral decline because too many Christians in America have “progressed” from accepting what the Bible considers sin to accommodating sinners or even celebrating sin in various popular forms.

There is a huge difference between accommodating and loving sinners -those who need the truth of the gospel that includes the satisfied wrath of God through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

One more example of our indifference is the fact a major report was done last year when the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee published a 500-page report on Planned Parenthood. With decades of destroying human lives and of corrupt practices, the report was a glimpse into the dark, chilling world of selling human baby body parts.

It is a sick, twisted industry and federal law is very clear: it is illegal to make a profit from the body parts or specimens of fetuses or parts of any human. But the documents subpoenaed from Planned Parenthood and related companies show how the law was completely and willfully ignored.

Representative Diane Black said the report should “incense all people of conscience.”

“Over the last year, the Select Panel’s relentless fact-finding investigation has laid bare the grisly reality of an abortion industry that is driven by profit, unconcerned by matters of basic ethics and, too often, non-compliant with the few laws we have to protect the safety of women and their unborn children,”

Without getting into extensive details of the House investigation, the panel concluded and recommended Planned Parenthood must be defunded. After receiving more than $4 billion from American taxpayers over the last decade, Congress should make Planned Parenthood ineligible to receive federal tax dollars and instead, redirect those funds to the thousands of low-cost health clinics that do not sell abortions.

The panel also recommended Congress take action to protect women and infants from unscrupulous tissue procurement practices, and from the repeated failure to report the sexual abuse of young girls. By far, the abortion industry is one of the least regulated in America so it’s business as usual for them.

Plenty of statistics show eugenicist and racist, Margaret Sanger’s mission not only continues today, but truth is often buried or denied. According to the Center for Disease Control, over 35% of aborted babies in America are black. 

However, more citizens appear to be changing their minds as polls generally show most people (one poll, 84%) think there should be restrictions on abortion. A majority overwhelmingly believe our tax dollars should not be helping fund Planned Parenthood. Hollywood, the government, the education system, and the media do not appear to be siding with the majority of the people on this issue.

If there’s a glimmer of light, in the last two-plus decades, the number of abortion clinics has fallen by more than 74%. At least twenty states now have from two or less abortion clinics, and since the early 90s, 81% of abortion clinics have closed.

Some former abortion clinics have turned into life-affirming pregnancy centers in recent years include two in Iowa, two in Miami, one in Toledo, Ohio, and a former flagship Planned Parenthood building in Bryan, Texas, that now houses 40 Days for Life and a pregnancy help medical clinic. Some prayers are bring answered.

There is some momentum for the pro-life movement, but this is not time to celebrate. America has blood on its hands. Much damage has been done and every other week it seems another young woman is taken to the emergency room due to a botched abortion. It’s also clear we are simply too busy to care or do much to reverse one of the most evil, unjust Supreme Court decisions in this nation’s history.

What can we do? Keep believing, keep raising awareness, keep voting for life, and keep praying; but don’t hold your breath.

David Fiorazo’s new book is Redefining Truth: Delusions of Replacing God and Calling Evil Good

all-lives-matterOne danger in our society is many people have gotten used to the back and forth debate over the most sacred of rights on earth – life. Though the pro-life movement has had some recent success, there is so much political give and take depending on who gets elected and who follows through on campaign promises, too many people tune out.

It’s tragic however, when Christians, religious folks, and true conservatives look the other way as well. Make no mistake: this is a battle of worldviews. Who should be born, how long should people live, and who determines the quality, productivity, and value of human life?

Pastor David Platt often emphasizes God’s heart for the unborn and recently said:

“Children are so precious. They are a treasure to be cherished. And yet, we live in a culture where children are a problem to be avoided.”

Most of us have heard the argument by some pro-abortion activists insisting pregnancy is comparable to a disease that must be cured and thus, a baby is something to be removed. The logical progression of this extreme thought process and its lack of value for human life doesn’t stop at the dismembering of baby body parts. Support for assisted suicide has also increased – even among church-goers in America.

First, in a story ignored by the media and that few paid attention to because it came out just before Christmas, the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee published a 500-page report on Planned Parenthood. The report gives a small glimpse into a very dark, strange and chilling world of selling baby parts, a world where nothing goes to waste in this huge, profitable business.

And it is a sick, twisted industry. The law is very clear: it is illegal to make any profit from the body parts of fetuses or any body parts of any human. But the documents subpoenaed from Planned Parenthood and related companies show how the law was completely and willfully ignored.

Journalist and filmmaker, Phelim McAleer produced the Gosnell movie and co-authored a book about America’s most prolific serial killer, abortionist Kermit Gosnell. McAleer describes how the Committee documented how one $15 an hour “technician” spent his time on a summer day in 2014:

The ABR “technician” obtained a 20 week-old fetus at a [Planned Parenthood] clinic. From that one fetus, ABR sold its brain to one customer for $325; both of its eyes for $325 each ($650 total) to a second customer, a portion of its liver for $325 to a third customer; its thymus and for $325 and another portion of liver to a fourth customer; and its lung for $325 to a fifth customer. These fees are merely the service fees for the specimens themselves; ABR separately charged each customer for shipping, disease, screening, cleaning and freezing, as applicable. So from that single fetus for which ABR paid a mere $60, ABR charged its customers a total of $2,275 for tissue specimens…

…How long has it been since America lost its collective conscience and heart for truth? Just like Kermit Gosnell who was allowed to kill for years, most of us have turned a blind eye to the baby-part selling even though hundreds, perhaps thousands of professionals were part of it.

Incidentally, it costs $120 to send an aborted baby’s brain through FedEx Priority Overnight. The report does not detail where the parts were shipped but presumably they went to universities across the nation who kept signing the invoices and paying them.

And just today there was more breaking news – “Congressional panel publishes final report on Planned Parenthood body parts scandal.”

Representative Diane Black said the report should “incense all people of conscience.”

In another breaking story, Alabama becomes the seventh state (Illinois, Louisiana, Missouri, Oklahoma, South Dakota, and West Virginia) to allow wrongful-death actions before the pre-born child becomes viable.

Next, two more unreported stories came out last month on the subject of euthanasia. One activist in Australia claims assisted suicide is not just for the terminally ill and the option should be available to everyone. Philip Nitschke once wanted to make suicide pills available in supermarkets, even to “troubled teens.”

It may seem like an extreme position to believe that individuals have the right to dispose of their lives for any reason, but this has more support than most of us realize.

Why discuss this issue in the same context as abortion and profiteering from baby body parts? For many decades, we have allowed the culture of death to spread across America right under our noses and with the approval of many Christians.

A majority of Americans – including 4 in 10 professing evangelicals – want doctors to help terminally ill patients end their lives and believe it is morally acceptable. A recent article reveals opposition to assisted suicide is dying and the heart of the problem is our apathy and indifference as a civilized society. It proves we may not have the will to take a stand for righteousness and truth.

Even the American Medical Association (AMA) has described physician-assisted suicide as a serious risk to society and “fundamentally incompatible with a physician’s role as healer,” but apparently millions of Americans disagree.

Man thinks he knows best about life and death and should be able to play God; what could go wrong?

There is an abortion every 26 seconds in America, and shocking new statistics show the black and Hispanic populations taking the hit. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) numbers indicate the horrific fact that nearly 72% of black babies are aborted in Mississippi. Whites outnumber blacks in Mississippi 2-to-1, but white abortions make up 26% of the total.

In other heart-wrenching news, there are now more black babies aborted than born in New York City according to the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, Office of Vital Statistics. The number of black abortions in NYC is over 42% while Hispanics are not far behind at 31%.

The abortion figures are more staggering when you consider 82% of New York City abortions were on black or Hispanic babies; in Georgia, 73% and in Texas, 64% of abortions were on minorities.

If the liberal media, Hollywood, and pro-abortion Democrats are truly concerned about protecting women, why is there no outcry? Is it because abortion is big business or because their hearts have been hardened? Since wombs are dangerous places for black babies, isn’t there a story on racism here? Margaret Sanger sure would be proud.

A few weeks ago, a circuit court in Illinois ordered Planned Parenthood to pay $2 million to the Chicago family of 24 year-old Tonya Reaves, a botched abortion victim, in a wrongful death settlement. Reaves died at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in 2012 after hemorrhaging at a Planned Parenthood clinic. She did not receive proper medical treatment and the autopsy showed Reaves suffered from an incomplete abortion.

Thomas More Society’s vice president and senior counsel, Peter Breen, stated:

“The fact that Planned Parenthood has been allowed to merely pay ‘hush money’ to the victim’s family without any further consequences is a slap in the face to every woman who walks through the doors of the nation’s largest abortion provider.”

PlannedParenthood Tonya Reaves

Another tragic abortion-related death took place after a counselor strongly advised 18-year-old Marla Cardamone to abort her baby. Marla died at a Pennsylvania hospital from complications. Her Mother, Deborah Cardamone vowed to expose the truth so at Marla’s viewing, Deborah Cardamone requested an open casket even though Marla’s face and body were still swollen. She hopes to raise awareness about the abortion industry and wants people to understand abortions may be legal, but are not always safe. (Graphic photos)

Also largely unreported is the fact that the anguish and trauma of abortions often cause women years of emotional pain, torment, and guilt. Many young women try to act normal and hide the fact that they are in physical or emotional pain, often experiencing severe trauma soon after receiving an abortion. Moreover, countless women have experienced increased alcohol or drug use, eating disorders, depression, nightmares, self-destructive behavior and suicidal thoughts or attempts.

Is it a coincidence approximately 78% of Planned Parenthood clinics are in minority communities? Abortion rates should cause us to wonder if the original vision and work of Margaret Sanger to reduce minorities is becoming a reality right before our eyes. Sanger spoke to the women’s auxiliary of the Ku Klux Klan in New Jersey in 1926 and just three years later, Sanger’s American Birth Control League laid the groundwork for her first clinic in Harlem.

Sanger worked closely with William Edward Burghardt Du Bois, co-founder of the National Association for the Advancement of Col­ored People (NAACP). Prior to World War II, she was outspoken about her views on race, and used the influence of prominent blacks to reach the masses with her message. Du Bois was investigated by the FBI due to his socialist writings and later joined the Communist Party.

Du Bois helped Sanger with the “Negro Project,” for which Sanger invited black leaders includ­ing physicians, ministers and journalists, to form an advisory council to help direct the Harlem clinic and control births in the community. The prejudice blacks endured made their struggle even more difficult, which seemed to further justify reducing their population and restricting their reproduction. In his 1932 essay in Sanger’s Birth Control Review, Du Bois, wrote:

“The mass of ignorant Negroes still breed carelessly and disas­trously, so that the increase among Negroes, even more than the increase among whites, is from that part of the population least intelligent and fit, and least able to rear their children properly.”

What Adolf Hitler did to millions of Jews through eugenics and sterilization, Planned Parenthood founder, Margaret Sanger has dwarfed by pioneering a movement leading to the abortion of over one hundred million babies in the United States. Promoter of eugenics, Sanger is still celebrated by feminists and liberals today.

Margaret Sanger’s publication, The Birth Control Review, was founded in 1917 and through the years, she often published articles from eugenicists such as Ernst Rudin, a psychiatrist who worked as Adolf Hitler’s director of genetic sterilization and founded the Nazi Society for Racial Hygiene (Germany’s racial purity program).

Ernst Rudin’s article, “Eugenic Sterilization: An Urgent Need,” was also published in 1932 in Sanger’s Birth Control Review journal. The fol­lowing year, Rudin drafted the Nazi Sterilization Law in Germany. Rudin publicly praised Hitler for making his “more than thirty-year-old dream a reality” by imposing “racial hygiene.” It was only one year after Sanger delivered her infamous Peace Plan that Hitler signed the Law for the Prevention of Hereditarily Diseased Offspring.

After World War II had concluded, the horrors of eugenics and Nazi atrocities were exposed. Sanger acted deceptively and quickly to distance herself and the Birth Control League from the Third Reich’s “Final Solution.” Her idea to change the name of her organization was a shrewd one because until that time, the birth control and the eugenics movements were nearly impossible to separate.

People such as Sanger’s grandson, Alexander, as well as Planned Parenthood presidents have stated they intend to carry on Margaret Sanger’s work.

Recent polls show over 80% of Americans favor significant restrictions on abortion, the pro-life movement is growing, and dozens of abortion restrictions have been passed in the last few years. However; restricting the murder of the unborn is not enough because the heart of mankind is bent toward evil and the promotion of promiscuity will only increase.

The battle can be summed up in three words: God or man? Is Jesus the Truth and the Word of God our ultimate authority? In our anti-Christian culture, the concepts of abstinence, morality, purity, and self-restraint are seldom found. We need to reach people with the message that every single life is a gift from God created in His image and has value. The battle begins with Life.

America’s Culture of Death: We Need Abortion Control, Not Gun Control

pro-life girls
It appears those of us who disagree with abortion no longer have the exact same freedoms as the rest of America.
 
The U.S. Supreme Court doesn’t want to take this case in which a Colorado ruling blocked abortion protestors from displaying images of aborted fetuses near a church where they might upset children. A judge later barred protestors from displaying the “gruesome images.”
 
In this case, the protestors were outside of an abortion-approving church. First of all, shame on any church that defends killing babies at any stage of development, but why are these images offensive?
 
If every kind of foul, gory, perverted, sexual and sinful image imaginable is protected as an expression of free speech, how is this any different? Is it simply an issue of the right to kill – um, I mean, the ‘right to choose’?
 
I understand the graphic images of dead babies or baby body parts can be very disturbing to see; they should be disturbing! The problem is too many Americans have become desensitized to blood, guts, gore, and violence. Studies prove this has made our society worse.
 
Kids can watch endless violence on their video games and in movies; fighting, shooting, killing, bloody massacres, death, and murder are commonplace. Few complain to Hollywood or to video game producers about it. But now because of the complaints of abortion defenders and supporters, real images portraying the truth of abortion cannot be displayed in public?
 
Let’s just admit it so we can move on with the debate: most of us have seen worse on television or in movies, but we can disconnect from it because we know it is make believe.
 
We have bought liberal lies and talking points and we have lost our compassion for the most vulnerable. Father Frank Pavone once said, “America will not reject abortion until America sees abortion.” Is that what it will take to shake us out of complacency and selfishness? Sadly, many people don’t want to know the truth.
 
With the help of the government, media, Hollywood, and Planned Parenthood’s strategic marketing, the lines have been blurred regarding life. They have sold the ideas of convenience and sexual experimentation while minimizing morality.
 
A human heart begins beating between 4 – 6 weeks after conception and ultrasound imagery provides indisputable evidence of life in the womb. Some call them ‘pre-born’ babies. Truth is inconvenient to those who are making money from destroying lives. (See Kermit Gosnell)
 
If telling the truth and displaying graphic photos helped wake up apathetic people in order to save Jews from the Holocaust and helped save black people from lynchings, why can’t we do the same thing in an effort to save even more lives?
 
It all comes back to who America chooses to live for: God or man?
 
“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; your works are wonderful… My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” (Psalm 139:13-16)
 
God is the Creator of all life. He knows the number of our days and He sustains all things.
 
We must support free speech rights, including those of the pro-life movement, and speak up any way we can to raise awareness about America’s ongoing holocaust.
