barbarahowardweb.gifBack in the 1960s, many of the radical pro-black revolutionaries (Black Panthers, Black Muslims) and other anti-government, anti-white organizations proclaimed that birth control was just another form of genocide. Little did they know how right they were.

The mother of birth control and Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, was an avowed atheist, Socialist and a proponent of negative eugenics.

Sanger wrote in What Every Boy and Girl Should Know (1915), “It is a vicious cycle; ignorance breeds poverty and poverty breeds ignorance. There is only one cure for both, and that is to stop breeding these things.

“Stop bringing to birth children whose inheritance cannot be one of health or intelligence. Stop bringing into the world children whose parents cannot provide for them.”

She wrote further, in "Birth Control and Racial Betterment" (The Birth Control Review), “We maintain that a woman possessing an adequate knowledge of her reproductive functions is the best judge of the time and conditions under which her child should be brought into the world… it is her right, regardless of all other considerations, to determine whether she shall bear children or not, and how many children she shall bear if she chooses to become a mother….”

Unaware of her background and political leanings, many of us agreed with her rationale, as well as for access to legal abortions, given the number of women and teenage girls who died as a result of backroom or self-administered abortions.  However over the years, the consequences of Sanger’s initiatives have proven to be devastating.

Since the first “family planning” clinic was opened in Harlem in 1930, there have been “more than 820 health centers around the country,” according to Planned Parenthood’s website. With most of hte health centers located in black communities, abortion has become the number-one killer of blacks.

Abortion statistics show there have been more than 50 million abortions – murder of unborn children – since the U.S. Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, averaging 4,000 abortions per day.

Statistics also show more than 46 million abortions worldwide, with 78 percent occurring in developing countries such as those with Planned Parenthood centers, including Ethiopia, Kenya, Nigeria, Sudan, and Trinidad and Tobago.

About 12 percent of abortions are for girls under 18, some without parents’ knowledge and paid for by your tax dollars, thanks to abortion proponents.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control reports that black teenage pregnancies are double those of other ethnic groups.  So what is Planned Parenthood doing in the black neighborhoods? And what about the murder of unborn black children?

Recently, some black preachers finally came out not against abortion per se, but merely against the location of Planned
Parenthood centers in black communities.

It seems the murder of blacks is only a consideration for black preachers or other leaders when they are killed by white or Hispanic cops.  They will march, protest and call press conferences every time a cop shoots a black criminal, usually as he is in the middle of perpetrating a heinous crime.

So it is no surprise that when President Barack Obama was in the Illinois Legislature, he voted to allow abortions in the third trimester and to prevent physicians from administering life-saving assistance to fetuses born from botched abortions – the only time that doctors are allowed to not save somebody’s life.

It is also no surprise that the very first bill Obama signed as President was to reverse President George Bush’s decree and give our tax dollars again to those non-governmental organizations (NGOs) which perform abortions in third world countries.

There has not been a word of protest from the Christian leadership. Their collaboration with Planned Parenthood, an organization created by an atheistic eugenics Socialist whose prime directive is the murder of millions of unborn children, is the very antithesis of the gospel of Jesus Christ that they preach.

So who will stop the cold-blooded murder of millions of unborn black children?
