In case you missed it with all the uproar in recent weeks and days about the Disease That May Not Be Named (DTMNBN), I found a little something that further illustrates the utter depravity of our once-respected news outlets, in this case, Time magazine.
Everywhere you look or listen, about the only topic making headlines has to do with DTMNBN, but according to an article I found in a news outlet called Live Action, just a few days ago Time retroactively awarded Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger, with the Woman Of The Year award for the year 1925.
The list of women includes multiple abortion proponents, including Hillary Clinton for 2016, Michelle Obama for 2008, Nancy Pelosi for 2010, and Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg being retroactively named Woman of the Year for 1996. Vocal abortion advocate Gloria Steinem claimed 1970’s Woman of the Year. One very notable exception to the lineup of pro-abortion women is “Jane Roe” (whose real name was Norma McCorvey), who not only never had an abortion, but eventually became pro-life and opposed abortion to her dying day. She would definitely not feel honored to receive the retroactive Woman of the Year for 1973 for her contribution to the legalization of abortion.
However, one woman was given the utmost praise. Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, was named Woman of the Year for 1925 because, says TIME, “she helped women gain control over their bodies and futures.” But while abortion proponents like to believe this was her motivation, in reality, she held a strong pro-eugenics stance and argued that birth control should be put into drinking water in poor and minority neighborhoods.
Sanger saw birth control as “the facilitation of the process of weeding out the unfit, of preventing the birth of defectives or of those who will become defective.” In one of her most memorable quotes from a letter on her “Negro Project” to fellow eugenicist Clarence Gamble, she said, “We don’t want the 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.”
Ultimately, what Sanger really did by pushing for birth control was to dangle a carrot in front of women that promised freedom, power, and equality. But that carrot was rotten. As the use of birth control rose, so did promiscuity and divorce. The side effects of birth control began to show themselves through an increased risk of breast cancer, cervical cancer, pulmonary embolism, stroke, heart attack, and depression to name a few.
Something that absolutely sickens my heart is the use of politically-correct phraseology to soften the impact of the horror of abortion. Cutting straight to the chase, the practice of abortion is nothing less than first-degree premeditated murder for hire.
Literally millions of babies have been murdered since abortion was legalized after the Roe v. Wade case in 1973, with hundreds upon hundreds of more innocent lives added to the rolls every day, yet there are ZERO outcries against those who proclaim from the rooftops that removing a partially-developed infant from its mother’s womb is of no more consequence than removing a wart or a fibroid mass.
I see the hysteria about DTMNBM the MSM Fake News is pushing as nothing short of massive hypocrisy. Why is that? When addressing the issue of the lethality of the two, DTMNBM is almost exactly the inverse percentage-wise.
The percentage of babies that die during abortions (as compared to the number that survives) is so close to 100% as to be nearly statistically irrelevant, whereas the percentage of those dying from the DTMNBM to date is remarkably small, with increasing numbers of recoveries from the disease now being reported. When was the last time you heard of a dead baby recovering from a “successful” abortion procedure?
Abortion is in no way a valid form of “birth control” or “family planning.” In the same way, it is NOT a “women’s health” issue. We now have at our disposal the technology to be able to confirm that the developing child in a woman’s womb is indeed a separate person whose blood is not mingled with the mother’s.
Margaret Sanger’s “contribution” to society is nothing short of being perhaps the most single-mindedly racist and deadly attitude ever loosed on American society, particularly the black community, whose numbers have been, and continue to be, decimated by the horrific practice pushed by Planned Parenthood. Her inclusion in Time’s list of historically significant women is a serious indictment against common sense and morality.
