I have to ask, where is the out rage? Seriously, I don’t like being angry and pessimistic all of the time, so I haven’t blogged much of late. Well, there is also the fact that I just can’t keep up with the multitude of things these days that keep me angry and pessimistic. Just about every one of the things has to do with the anger-making and pessimism-making president we have. Every time I think he has gone as far as he can go, he goes a little (actually a lot) further in doing and promoting stupid stuff that drags us lower and lower. Is there really anyone who voted for Obama that thinks he is not an Israel hater? Who thinks it’s a good idea to make it easier for Iran to create nuclear weaponry and at the same time reduce the United States military strength to pre-WWII levels? Maybe they are the same people who think it’s a good idea to fund Planned Parenthood, while Margaret Sangers’s ‘brain child’ harvests body parts from aborted baby human beings to sell on the open market. They are human babies, people. The thought that they are anything but humans is trully outrageous.
I have blogged about the evils of Planned Parenthood before, but the recent revelations of traffiking in baby body parts and financial gain for the greedy killers makes me beyond sick to my stomach; and I need to vent. Incidentally, does anyone else find the name, “Planned Parenthood as ironic as I do? Shouldn’t it be “Planned Un-parenthood?” Margaret Sanger was a racist proponent of eugenics. It was Sanger’s view, along with many of the progressives of the 30s and 40s, that sterilization of the feeble minded—morons and idiots, in her view—should be compelled to be sterilized. She was successful in this in 30 states resulting in an estimated 60, 000 sterilizations. Not unlike Hitler, Sanger was for culling negroes and Jews by birth control, Sterilizations, she said, “do not go to the bottom of the matter.” (“Birth Control and Racial Betterment,” Feb. 1919, The Birth Control Review). She presented her beliefs to female groups of the Ku Klux Klan, and in a letter to Clarence Gable in 1939, Sanger wrote: “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” (Margaret Sanger commenting on the ‘Negro Project’ in a letter to Gamble, Dec. 10, 1939). If you are a big proponent of Planned Parenthood, as is Hilary Clinton, you get a Margaret Sanger award.
Last evening I visited my daughter and my beautiful new grandson, to whom she had that day given birth. I looked at him and couldn’t help but think of the total number of abortions in the U.S. 1973-2013: 56.5 million. That is 219 abortions per 1,000 live births (according to the Centers for Disease Control); 1.058 million abortions every year; 2,899 Abortions per day; 120 abortions per hour; 1 abortion every 30 seconds. Is it not bad enough that we allow such carnage unabated in this nation? Do I have to help fund it too. Yeah, I’m angry and pessimistic about this nation’s relationship to God. So, I ask, Where is the Outrage? Soilent Green, anyone?
