Abortion Practitioner to Haiti: "Stew in Your Own Juices" for Having High Population

Port-au-Prince, Haiti (LifeNews.com) — The world is in mourning today in the aftermath of a devastating earthquake in Haiti that initial reports indicate could have left hundreds of thousands of people dead or wounded. Although the nation is getting the world’s sympathy, Haiti was once on the receiving end of hatred from an abortion practitioner.
Joyce Tarnow, the owner of an abortion center in Florida, where many Haitian-Americans reside, made some shocking comments to a newspaper two years ago.
Tarnow is an aggressive population control advocate who told the New Times newspaper in July 2004, "I try to get as many people sterilized as are in my way."
But, today, she is begin recalled as someone whose attitude towards the Haitian people is beyond the pale.
Tarnow told the New Times at the time that she supports population control because America "can’t take all the people in the world."
"We need to help nations that can subsist and let others wither on the vine," she said.
She told the newspaper that Haiti, and third-world nations like it with high populations, "has denuded the whole land."
Her advice for the country? "Stew in your own juices."
The comments from Tarnow came in an article focusing on how she was closing her abortion business that did as many as 800-900 abortions a year. Abortion advocates hailed her as a hero, but one pro-life blogger at the web site "Saynsmthn" has a different take.
"This is the way these pro-abortion people feel about people of ‘color’ in my view," the pro-life advocate says of the insensitive comment about Haiti. "Just like recent comments by Harry Reid, it is time African Americans and minorities wake up and see how these supposed liberal progressives view them."
"Is abortion clinic owner, Joyce Tarnows wish coming true after the Haiti Earthquake?" the pro-life blogger asks.
Tarnow hasn’t changed her stripes since targeting low-income Haitians in south Florida with abortions. Now she is the president of the anti-immigration group: Floridians for a Sustainable Population.
