“We don’t want word to get out that we want to exterminate the Negro population. But you could abort every black baby in the US & your crime rate would go down,” married quote by Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger & former Secretary of Education Bill BennettPosted: February 3, 2011
With the theme of abortions being the solution, in one way or another, to the so called black problem or the problems America’s faced with because of us black people’s apparent propensity to poverty and crime, the coupling of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger and former Reagan administration Secretary of Education Bill Bennett is certainly a match made in white America heaven.
In the 1900’s a leader of an organization spoke at many KKK rallies and once called the Klan a great organization. She also referred to black people as “human weeds“. In fact this woman and many of her fellow American Progressives, were supporters of the Klan, eugenics, and the so called “Negro Project“. While speaking of the “Negro Project”, she said in a letter to a “progressive” colleague, “we do not want the word to get out that we want to exterminate the Negro population… . ” So how was she hoping to exterminate the Black American population? First, let me tell you who she was. Her name was Margaret Sangerand no, she was not a religious conservative or a politician. No, she was the president of Planned Parenthood and had a secret plan to promote as many abortions to Black mothers as possible! That is how she hoped to destroy theAmerican Dream for future Black citizens. She was not about trying to preserve women’s rights,and her hate speech exposed her as one who wanted to take away your right to be born, if you were black! (Link)
On September 28, 2005, in a discussion on Bennett’s Morning in America radio show, a caller to the show proposed the idea that the Social Security system might be solvent today if abortion hadn’t been permitted following the Roe v. Wade decision. Addressing a caller’s suggestion that the “lost revenue from the people who have been aborted in the last 30 years” would be enough to preserve Social Security’s solvency, radio host and former Reagan administration Secretary of Education Bill Bennett dismissed such “far-reaching, extensive extrapolations” by declaring that if “you wanted to reduce crime … if that were your sole purpose, you could abort every black baby in this country, and your crime rate would go down.” Bennett conceded that aborting all African-American babies “would be an impossible, ridiculous, and morally reprehensible thing to do,” then added again, “but the crime rate would go down.”
Margaret Higgins Sanger was born(September 14, 1879 and died September 6, 1966. Bill Bennett was born July 31, 1943. Of white America, it’s certainly reassuring to know that although these to movers and shaker were (fundamentally) a generation apart, so much of what they believed was still in alignment with each other.
