Pro-choice researcher admits Margaret Sanger was a eugenicist

Writer and researcher Edwin Black, who supports the work of Planned Parenthood, said the following about its founder, Margaret Sanger:

“[Margaret] Sanger was an ardent, self-confessed eugenicist, and she would turn her otherwise noble birth control organizations [which would be renamed Planned Parenthood] into a tool for eugenics, which advocated for mass sterilization of so-called defectives, mass incarceration of the unfit, and draconian immigration restrictions.

Like other staunch eugenicists, Sanger vigorously opposed charitable efforts to uplift the downtrodden and deprived, and argued extensively that it was better that the cold and hungry be left without help, so that the eugenicly superior strains could multiply without competition from “the unfit.”

She repeatedly referred to the lower classes and the unfit as “human waste” not worthy of assistance, and proudly quoted the extreme eugenic view that human “weeds” should be “exterminated.”

Moreover, for both political and genuine ideological reasons, Sanger associated closely with some of America’s most fanatical eugenic racists. Both through her publication, Birth Control Review, and her public oratory, Sanger helped legitimize and widen the appeal of eugenic pseudoscience. Indeed, to many, birth control was just another form of eugenics…

[Margaret] Sanger always considered birth control a function of general population control and embraced the Malthusian notion that a world running out of food supplies should halt charitable works and allow the weak to die off.”

African pro-lifer shows abortion minded women ultrasounds

African pro-life author Kiboko Francoise Machozi writes:

“Several times women come for an abortion [and] I just do a free ultrasound showing them how the fetus is and what he is able to [do] on that particular stage; I explain what abortion really means and that I can never help them doing what I believe it is murder because it is against my calling…

Many come to show me their children later, telling me that it is the product of what I told them. This makes me believe that many lives could be saved if a proper counseling could be done to women willing to abort children.”

Machozi is a registered nurse and midwife in South Africa.

Pro-choice activist gives instructions to sonographers

Pro-choice writer Carolyn McLeod says there should be “fairly radical changes in obstetrical practice” to dehumanize preborn babies. She says:

“… In some obstetrical contexts it may be appropriate to view fetuses as separate (e.g., in fetal surgery); however, overall, they should not be defined as separate or independent entities.

During ultrasound scanning, sonographers and physicians should try to avoid descriptions which suggests that they are self-sustaining beings.…

We need a model of pregnancy as a relation, but not one that is so exact that it cannot accommodate varying degrees to which women view their fetuses as part of them.”

Carolyn McLeod Self–Trust and Reproductive Autonomy (Cambridge, Massachusetts: The MIT Press, 2002) 159 – 160

Of course, scientifically, preborn babies are “separate and independent entities” and not a part of a woman’s body. McLeod seems to see a threat in the way sonographers and obstetricians regard preborn babies and communicate their existence to mothers. This seems to threaten the pro-choice talking point that preborn babies are not human beings.

Pro-Choice author refers to “baby” in the womb

Pro-Choice author Lisa M Mitchell was unimpressed with the ultrasound she had while pregnant. Nevertheless, she refers to the entity in her womb as a baby:

“What I recall most vividly during my first ultrasound was the technician’s concern when I didn’t seem interested in the swirling grey mass on the screen. From my perspective, lying on my back with an enormous belly and a full bladder, I just wanted the scan to be over. I now understand the technician incorrectly read my reaction to the ultrasound as a sign that I was ambivalent about or possibly even rejecting the baby.”

Lisa M Mitchell Baby’s First Picture: Ultrasound and the Politics of Fetal Subjects (Toronto: University of Toronto Press Inc., 2001) 50-91

Mitchell spends the entire book defending abortion but seems to know that women are pregnant with babies and that her child was a baby in the womb.

Preborn baby has hormonal response to pain

In the book Post-Abortion Syndrome: Its Wide Ramifications Peter Doherty writes:

“That the fetus exhibits a stress response to invasive stimuli is shown by a study from Queen Charlotte’s Hospital, London, in which Professor Fisk and his colleagues presented their findings of a hormonal response in the fetal plasma following intrauterine needling…

[I]t is highly suggestive in that a similar hormonal response is mounted by older children and adults to stimuli which they find painful.”

Peter Doherty “Introduction” Peter Doherty, ed. Post-Abortion Syndrome: Its Wide Ramifications (Dublin, Ireland: Four CourtsPress, 1995) 11

Doherty cites the following study:

Pro-choice author admits abortion is “killing and dying process”

Pro-choice author Laurie Shrage, describing late-term abortion:

“dismemberment, craniotomy, or the injection of a chemical that causes cardiac arrest, whereas abortion in the first trimester involves a less physically violent killing and dying process.”

Lauri Shrage Abortion and Social Responsibility: Depolarizing the Debate (New York: Oxford University Press, 2003) 57

This pro-choice activist admits that abortion, even early abortion, causes a “killing and dying process.” She is under no illusions that abortion kills.
