Update: 04/02/14: Pelosi, good Catholic that she is, attended the meeting and accepted her award.
As Politico reported, Pelosi rebuked the pro-life community and criticized “personhood” laws, stating that the struggle for reproductive rights will continue whatever the Supreme Court decides on the HHS mandate.
Speaking about pro-life individuals, Pelosi said, “…When you see how closed their minds are or oblivious or whatever it is – dumb – then you know what the fight is about.”
Pelosi calling someone dumb is ironic.
Mr. Obama gave away the blessed rosary beads Pope Francis gave him and he gave them to her. She said it means a lot to her. How strange.
Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PP) announced that House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, an alleged Roman Catholic, will be given “the Margaret Sanger Award, the organization’s highest honor, in recognition of her leadership, excellence, and outstanding contributions to the reproductive health and rights movement over the course of her career,” according to a Planned Parenthood website posting.
It’s their “highest recognition of leadership, excellence, and outstanding contributions to the reproductive health and rights movement.”
Margaret Sanger was a Eugenicist whose name came up late last year when President Obama awarded the Medal of Freedom to that fighter for far-left women – Gloria Steinem. Steinem believes in “reproductive freedom” which includes abortions to the moment of birth.
A woman’s right to decide whether or when to have a child is not a ‘social issue’, it is a ‘human right,’ Steinem said upon receiving her medal. She doesn’t see any limit to women’s rights and unborn babies have no rights.
She accepted her Medal of Freedom to honor “the work of Margaret Sanger.”
Margaret Sanger was a eugenicist and probably a racist.
Sanger’s appearances at KKK rallies have been kept from the public as much as possible. One writer on Daily Kos, who claims to be a professor, actually said the KKK in the south wasn’t what it is now and “it wasn’t that much of a negative.”
The KKK in the south in Sanger’s time was a murderous band of bigots, contrary to what this professor seems to think.
She was happy to go to KKK rallies:
“I accepted an invitation to talk to the women’s branch of the Ku Klux Klan…I saw through the door dim figures parading with banners and illuminated crosses…I was escorted to the platform, was introduced, and began to speak…In the end, through simple illustrations I believed I had accomplished my purpose. A dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered.” (Margaret Sanger: An Autobiography, P.366)
In E. Drogin, Margaret Sanger: Father of Modern Society, CUL Publishers, 1980, Section 1, p. 18-24;
“Negroes and Southern Europeans are mentally inferior to native born Americans”
Sanger wrote in an article entitled “The Eugenic Value of Birth Control Propaganda,” which appeared in the October 1921 edition of Birth Control Review, the following:
“In this matter, the example of the inferior classes, the fertility of the feeble-minded, the mentally defective, the poverty-stricken classes, should not be held up for emulation to the mentally and physically fit though less fertile parents of the educated and well-to-do classes,” she wrote. “On the contrary, the most urgent problem today is how to limit and discourage the over-fertility of the mentally and physically defective.
“Possibly drastic and Spartan methods may be forced upon society if it continues complacently to encourage the chance and chaotic breeding that has resulted from our stupidly cruel sentimentalism,” she said.
Sanger wanted a new and improved race: ‘[We should] apply a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is tainted, or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to offspring.’
Then there was the April 1932 Birth Control Review, p. 108
Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race.
Let’s go to The Pivot of Civilization, 1922. Chapter on “The Cruelty of Charity,” pages 116, 122, and 189. Swarthmore College Library edition
“Our failure to segregate morons who are increasing and multiplying … demonstrates our foolhardy and extravagant sentimentalism … [Philanthropists] encourage the healthier and more normal sections of the world to shoulder the burden of unthinking and indiscriminate fecundity of others; which brings with it, as I think the reader must agree, a dead weight of human waste. Instead of decreasing and aiming to eliminate the stocks that are most detrimental to the future of the race and the world, it tends to render them to a menacing degree dominant … We are paying for, and even submitting to, the dictates of an ever-increasing, unceasingly spawning class of human beings who never should have been born at all.”
She had a view of population control that would have made the Communist Chinese quite proud:
The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.
In her “Plan for Peace” from Birth Control Review (April 1932, pp. 107-108) she said:
Article 1. The purpose of the American Baby Code shall be to provide for a better distribution of babies… and to protect society against the propagation and increase of the unfit. Article 4. No woman shall have the legal right to bear a child, and no man shall have the right to become a father, without a permit… Article 6. No permit for parenthood shall be valid for more than one birth.
In “America Needs a Code for Babies”, 27 Mar 1934:
“Give dysgenic groups [people with “bad genes”] in our population their choice of segregation or [compulsory] sterilization.”
Delightful woman that Margaret Sanger and a fine representation of what Gloria Steinem, Barack Obama, and Nancy Pelosi represent.
The fact that far more minorities than whites are having their babies aborted should concern everyone. It’s of genocidal proportions.
What is it with people like Nancy Pelosi and the uncompromising support of abortion and eugenics?
The infamous, Margaret Sanger, Founder of Planned Parenthood, was and is much adored by Progressives for her stand on abortion and eugenics.
Congratulations Nancy upon receiving this dubious award in the name of a eugenicist racist, KKK lover, you have earned it.
Nancy Pelosi thinks the Catholic Church doesn’t know when life begins:
