January 25th Monthly Meeting: Planned Parenthood’s Eugenic Roots – Black Genocide?
- This event has passed.
The eugenics movement was in full bloom in the 1920s and 30s. Margaret Sanger was an enthusiastic supporter – stating in 1921 that, “the most urgent problem today is how to limit and discourage the over-fertility of the mentally and physically defective.” Race, class, mental/physical deficiencies, promiscuity, and even simple poverty factored into eugenic definitions of “fit” and “unfit. Driven by the eugenics movement, 30 states had forced sterilization laws by 1931.
Is there an agenda by Planned Parenthood to target African-Americans?
“Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in America. 78% of their clinics are in minority communities. Blacks make up 12% of the population, but 35% of the abortions in America. Are we being targeted? Isn’t that genocide?”
Famed voting rights and anti-poverty activist, Fannie Lou Hamer, considered abortion a “genocide among black people.”
“In New York City, the abortion of black babies occurs at an alarming ratio that is 5 times higher than whites, and twice as high as Hispanics. For every 1,000 black babies born alive, there are 1,180 babies destroyed by abortion (as compared to 240 white babies per 1,000 born alive and 610 Hispanic babies aborted per 1,000 born alive). Nearly sixty percent of all viable black pregnancies in NYC, the home of Planned Parenthood, end in abortion.”
Our guest speaker- Helen Lowery:
Helen Lowery is the child of a 13-year-old unwed mother and grew up in poverty. Based on Margaret Sanger’s view, she would have been classified as unfit to live. Helen states she was a “poster child (pun intended)” for the abortion agenda. Helen also became a teenaged unwed mother.
However, Helen is the first in her family to graduate from college with bachelor and master degrees. She is a community leader – having served on various non-profit boards, notably Niagara Falls Center for Young Parents. In 2017, Helen became the second female and first African-American president of a 35-year global trade association. Helen and her husband Jeff witnessed three of their children graduate from college in 2017.
Come hear about the devastation of abortion in the minority community and Helen Lowery’s riveting story.
