The History of Planned Parenthood

On April 30, 1945, surrounded by the Soviet Army in Berlin, Adolph Hitler committed suicide and his Reich collapsed. In all 6 million Jews had been buried by Hitler, but the Nazi killing didn't only involve the Jews, it is estimated that the total number killed by Hitler’s Reich may have been more than 20 million.

Most believe that the Nazi’s evil ideology was defeated when Hitler committed suicide, but that is incorrect. Only Hitler’s Reich was defeated on that date. Amidst the rubble, the surrender, and the Nuremberg Trials, the roots of the Nazi’s ideology nightmarishly remained...

The Nazi’s practiced eugenics, but they did not invent it. The Nazi's killed millions under the moral banner of bettering the human gene pool, but they did not kill the most. Before the Nazi’s, before Hitler’s, “Final Solution,” American eugenicists were busy in a place that for many Americans may seem too close to home, Cold Springs Harbor, Long Island.

Here, the Rockefellers, the Carnegies, and the Ford’s were meeting in the darkest of shadows…

The plan was to immediately sterilize fourteen million people in the United States and millions more worldwide –the lower tenth- and then the next lower tenth, and so on, until only a super race remained. Records indicate that 60,000 Americans were forcibly sterilized during the first six decades of the twentieth century, although the number is probably much higher. The victims of eugenics were poor urban dwellers, rural “white trash,” blacks, Jews, the blind, the def.

These were labeled lesser forms of life, unworthy of existence, a pseudoscientific classification created in the research rooms of the Carnegie Institution, verified by the research grants of the Rockefeller Foundation, validated by Ivy League Universities, further financed by the Harriman Railroad fortune, and the Ford Foundation.

In 1920, Henry Ford published a collection of essays entitled, The International Jew: The World’s Foremost Problem. Back on the Old Continent, it was destined to be read by a young and struggling so-called German “hero” from World War One, Adolph Hitler; in America, by a young woman’s rights activist, Margaret Sanger…

Sanger, the sixth of eleven children, eventually published her own magnum opus, “The Pivot of Civilization.” Miss Sanger wrote acidly:

“There is no greater curse to posterity than that of bequeathing them an increasing population of imbeciles.” “Organized charity itself,” she wrote, “The Church, those vast, complex, interrelated organizations aiming to diminish the spread of misery and destitution, are the surest reason for the increasing population of imbeciles.” “My criticism therefore, is not directed at the failure of philanthropy, but rather its success…Oh, the cruelty of charity!”

“The first step,” she ordered, will be to establish a so-called “Eugenics Record Office,” “to quietly register the genetic backgrounds of all Americans, separating the defective strains from the desired lineages.” Family trees will be called pedigrees.

Where will this Eugenics Record Office obtain family details? Inquired the great twentieth century Zoologist, Mr. Charles Davenport.

“They lie hidden,” she told him, “in the records of our many charitable organizations, our 42 institutions for the feebleminded, our 115 schools and homes for the blind and the deaf, our 350 hospitals for the insane, our 1,200 refuge homes, our 1,300 prisons, our 1,500 hospitals, and our 2,500 almshouses. Our great insurance companies and our college gymnasiums, have tens of thousands of records on the characteristics of human bloodlines.” “These records should be studied; their hereditary data sifted out, properly recorded on cards and then sent to a central bureau for study…”
