Margaret Sanger: “We Want to Exterminate the Negro Population.” Her Wish is Coming True

If you listen very carefully to the coffin of Margaret Sanger you would hear absolutely nothing.

Assuredly, she’s not rolling over in her grave that black and Hispanic babies are far more likely to be aborted than white babies. She might be dancing, however.

Sanger once said, “Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race” and even said, “We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. 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.”

Now, you can read all sorts of defenses of those quotes like they’re taken out of context or hey, it was the 1920’s people said all sorts of stupid things way back in the day. But it’d be a little easier to ignore if the group she founded didn’t seem so intent on killing black and Hispanic children. According to a recent study from The Center for Disease Control 82 Percent of Abortions in New York City and 64% in Texas Were on Black or Hispanic Babies. Hey Margaret, mission accomplished. reports:

According to the report, there were 415,479 abortions for known ethnicity reported for selected states in 2010 and 153,045 (or 36.8 percent) were non-Hispanic white babies, 148,261 (or 35.7 percent) were non-Hispanic black babies, 87,240 (or 21.0 percent) were Hispanic babies, and 26,933 (or 6.5 percent) were babies of other races or ethnicities. The report reveals that a majority of Black or Hispanic babies were aborted in New Jersey (55.9 percent), the District of Columbia (64.8 percent) and Georgia (73.2 percent). In New York City alone 81.9 percent of the babies aborted were Black or Hispanic while in the state of Texas 63.7 percent were Black or Hispanic an increase from 2009.

So we have the founder of the organization saying that’s what she wanted to do and then when the organization does that, we’re all supposed to believe it’s just coincidence? Isn’t it weird that people point to the majority of prisoners being black and Hispanic as proof of racism but the fact that black babies are far more likely to be killed in the womb is just coincidence?
