“We must not be surprised when we hear of murders, of killings, of wars, of hatred.
If a mother can kill her own child, what is left but for us to kill each other.”
~ Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta
The culture of death marches ever on. It’s worse than ever in our nation’s largest city. How did we get here? First, a little background that will make a few people uncomfortable.
“The most merciful thing that a family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.” – Margaret Sanger (editor). The Woman Rebel, Volume I, Number 1. Reprinted in Woman and the New Race. New York: Brentanos Publishers, 1922.
“Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race.” – Margaret Sanger. Woman, Morality, and Birth Control. New York: New York Publishing Company, 1922. Page 12.
Those are just two of the many horrifying things she said. You can read even more of Sanger in her own words by doing some research. The scandal isn’t just that she said these things, but that people today ignore them and continue the unabated wholescale slaughter. It’s incredibly sad that so many go mindlessly along with her and her ideas, whether they realize it or not.
And lest you think those ideas died with her, and no one says or things those things anymore, here is a more recent example courtesy of Jonah Goldberg:
In 1992, Ron Weddington, co-counsel in the Roe v. Wade case, wrote a letter to President-elect Clinton, imploring him to rush RU-486 — a.k.a. “the abortion pill” — to market as quickly as possible.
“(Y)ou can start immediately to eliminate the barely educated, unhealthy and poor segment of our country,” Weddington insisted. All the president had to do was make abortion cheap and easy for the populations we don’t want. “It’s what we all know is true, but we only whisper it. . . . Think of all the poverty, crime and misery . . . and then add 30 million unwanted babies to the scenario. We lost a lot of ground during the Reagan-Bush religious orgy. We don’t have a lot of time left.”
Weddington offered a clue about who, in particular, he had in mind: “For every Jesse Jackson who has fought his way out of the poverty of a large family, there are millions mired in poverty, drugs and crime.” Ah, right. Jesse Jackson. Got it.
There’s more, including a breathtaking statement by writer Nicholas von Hoffman to “…get rid of the thing before it turns into a monster.”
One more, from Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in 2009:
“Frankly I had thought that at the time [Roe v. Wade] was decided there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of.”
And all this time the pro-choice crowd has been telling us it’s about choice. I guess their “choice” is to eliminate the “little monsters that they “don’t want to have too many of.”
You may remember earlier this year when New York City released data that showed over 41% of all pregnancies ending in abortion. What it didn’t show was that 60% of those babies were African-American.
New data on New York City’s abortion statistics reveals an abortion ratio almost twice the national average. The report, provided by the New York City Department of Health at the request of the Chiaroscuro Foundation, a New York City non-for-profit organization that supports alternatives to abortion, said that of 225,667 pregnancies in 2009, there were 87,273 abortions.
Abortion rate statistics show that the zip code with the highest abortion ratio in the city, 67%, is in Manhattan’s Chelsea-Clinton neighborhood, followed by rates of 60% in two Jamaica, Queens zip codes and in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village and Central Harlem-Morningside Heights neighborhoods.
The five zip codes with the lowest abortion ratios are on the Upper East Side, in Lower Manhattan, on the Upper West Side, and in Borough Park, Brooklyn. While there are several mostly white neighborhoods among the highest rates, there is not a zip code with less than 57% white residents according to 2010 census data among the lowest rates. About 60% of African-American women’s unborn babies were aborted, 41.3% for Hispanic women, 22.7% for Asians, and 21.4% for Caucasians.
The data revealed that in 2009, 48,627 of the 87,273 abortions in New York City, or 56%, were repeat abortions. 33,401, 38%, were paid for by Medicaid.
The demographic breakdown of the fifteen zip codes with the highest rates versus the fifteen with the lowest rates of abortion is here. What immediately jumps out at you is the disparity between the white and black population.
It would seem that Margaret Sanger is getting her wish after all. Her every racist eugenic fantasy has come true.
The survey they took is here. You’ll want to read the conclusion because it flies in the face of everything a pro-choice politician, Planned Parenthood supporter or the media will tell you.
Overall, voters say that the current rate of abortion in New York City is too high, particularly among the African American community. However, prior to being informed, voters’ perception of the abortion rate is significantly lower than reality. (Note: they thought it was only 25.7%. The national average is 23%.) Despite the fact that New York City voters tend to be pro-choice (Note: 67% of those surveyed identified themselves as pro-choice; 29% as pro-life.), they approve of several measures to reduce the rate of abortions such as providing information on the procedure and options to women, parental consent for minors, and a 24 hour waiting period before an abortion can be performed. They also oppose using state tax dollars to pay for abortion and oppose forcing health care workers to assist in abortions against their conscience.
To everyone who called me a racist for opposing President Obama’s economic policies I ask this question: would it be fair of me to state that anyone who is a supporter of Planned Parenthood is a racist? Why not?
I’ll tell you why. Because both are intellectually lazy and stupid arguments. I don’t believe everyone who is pro-choice or pro-Planned Parenthood is a racist. But I do believe the vast majority of you are misinformed and naive, much like the NYC voters who underestimated the abortion rate of their city by a wide margin. Next week I’ll be publishing a post that will demonstrate the truth of my statement with much clarity.
Sanger’s not the only one with blood on her hands. It’s on all of us.
NYC 41 Percent is on Facebook.
Gregory Pfundstein takes a look at one of the zip codes with the lowest rates of abortion and finds a reason for hope amidst the darkness. You’ll want to read it all. Mary, Mother of the Unborn, pray for us.
