"Christian Extremists Passing Forced Birth Laws"

New York Democrat Congresswoman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez declared Friday the "Christian extremists" are "passing forced birth laws" to make it more difficult for a woman to abort her child.

This, just days after Texas's pro-life law went into effect.

In attacking Texas for their new pro-life law, Leftist "elites" are noting that some pro-life states may soon be overrun with children with disabilities ---specifically Down syndrome. 

Eugenics advocate and Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger would be proud.

We should be informed, not misled.

"Devout Catholics who deny the teachings of their own church.

Friday Rep. Ocasio-Cortez tweeted, "Christian extremists are passing forced birth laws to intimidate & cut off abortion services---including for victims of rape, incest & child abuse."

"While we fight back," she said, "know that you still have options. Pills can be mailed to your home discreetly," she said.

This came just days after Texas's law, banning abortion after a fetal heartbeat, took effect.

The left is out in force, working every angle to unravel the Texas law. Nancy Pelosi claims on Twitter "Every woman has a constitutional and moral right to basic reproductive health care. We will fight  SB 8 and all immoral and dangerous attacks on women's health and freedoms with all our strength."

Both Biden and Pelosi claim to be "devout" Catholics but publicly reject the Church's teaching on the two most fundamental moral issues: Life and murder.

At one time Joe Biden claimed to be "pro-life" and said he believed "life begins at conception."

Now he claims he does not believe life begins at conception.

Nancy Pelosi, also a "devout" Catholic agrees with Biden.

Eugenics 101.

Following this campaign against life, "Down Syndrome" was trending on Twitter alongside "abortion" after the Supreme Court ruled not to block the Texas Heartbeat Act last week.

Many of those posting on Twitter were quoting from a thread that was coming from Newsweek contributor Richard Hanania who proposed that banning post heartbeat abortions could overrun red states with children with Down syndrome and other disabilities.

Hanania wrote "You can't screen for Down syndrome before about 10 weeks, and something like 80% of Down syndrome fetuses are aborted."

He continued, "If red states ban abortion, we could see a world where they have five times as  many children with Down syndrome, and similar numbers for other disabilities." 

In another tweet, he continued, 

"Could be outliers in the whole developed world. There are already negative stereotypes of Americans in these states, one can hardly imagine it getting more extreme. What if they also ban genetic engineering and embryonic selection, while other places go ahead?

"Will they maintain their belief in a small safety net and lower government spending in such a world? Would liberals change their minds about government spending if it ends up going to states that have much higher costs due to these laws? Many interesting things to think about."

Indeed, there are things to think about in this outburst from the Left.

The abortion industry as we know it today was created by Margaret Sanger the founder of  Planned Parenthood.

Sanger was a racist who advocated eugenics as the best method to eradicate blacks and other "undesirables."

Sanger's much-republished "My Way To Peace" (1932) clearly lays out her essential eugenics platform.

Although she wrote and said much about her eugenics agenda.

In "My Way To Peace," she argues that to "preserve racial hygiene, the government should enact three coercive measures:" First, it should sterilize those with mental and physical disabilities, which included "morons, mental defectives, and epileptics." 

Second, it should segregate, on state-run concentration farms, a much broader public of impoverished and criminal citizens, including paupers, prostitutes, drug addicts, illiterates, and the unemployed. If the second group reformed its behavior and accepted sterilization, it could return to mainstream society. 

The third initiative would be obligatory birth-control training for mothers with serious diseases, such as heart disease, in an effort to persuade them to renounce any further childbearing. This program was not about "choice." Or "women's healthcare." It was about population control.

Defenders of Sanger in the last generation are defenders of Planned Parenthood in this generation.

Sanger was clever. She was also a racist. And she said some of the same things you can read on social media today.

She built an independent birth control campaign, but when she and her followers were called out she simply denied it and redirected the conversation.

With Sanger, birth control based on individual freedom degenerated into population control, engineered by a coercive state. And there was no question as to the color of the populations she targeted.

At least 70,000 people in the US were forcibly sterilized under laws promoted by Sanger and her allies.

But it was a letter that laid bare her agenda. And her deception.

The letter

One of Sanger's most cherished initiatives was the Negro Project, which targeted predominantly black neighborhoods for birth control. She actually recruited black leaders to persuade minority populations to help her persuade minority neighborhoods of the value of contraception and sterilization.

In a 1939 letter to Clarence Gamble, Sanger revealed the underpinnings of her agenda.

In the letter she said, "We don't want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the [African-American minister] is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members." 

Sanger's lasting effect

Sanger's eugenics program only experienced relatively modest gains during her lifetime. The most impact she had while still living was that more than 30 states passed laws authorizing agencies to sterilize forcibly those considered "unfit" for childbearing.

But she lives on large in this generation. Planned Parenthood has become the face of evil. More and more people who support her ideologies have found their way to elected office---including in our US Congress.

Theirs is a demonic ideology. It is anti-God. And it is an act of rebellion against God, not an effort to make the society better---as often presented.

Some are not buying Sanger, OAC, Hillary, or Elizabeth (Warren). Neither should you.

This eugenics movement predates Ocasio-Cortez and Margaret Sanger.

Princeton University Professor Robert P George saw this thread on Twitter and responded

"Why is 'Down Syndrome' trending on Twitter? Because some of the people are arguing we need permissive abortion laws so we can 'screen' for people with Down's and kill them in utero. So wrong. No member of the human family is inherently superior or inferior to any other basic dignity."

He continued:

"Sometimes its worth remembering that what became known as the Holocaust did not begin with the murder of Jews, or Slavs, or Romani. It began with the killing of the disabled and cognitively impaired. They were graded as 'useless eaters' and declared 'Lebensunwertes Leben', (Life unworthy of life).

Dr. George says, "The ideology that held Down Syndrome people and others to be "lives unworthy of life did not originate with the Nazis. It predated their rise. Its architects were sophisticated, urbane, progressive people---like Karl Binding and Alfred Hoche.

George said, "Claiming that they were 'eliminating Down Syndrome' by killing people with Down Syndrome---so long as we catch it early enough---is like claiming that we are eliminating poverty by killing poor people. It is barbaric and the very thought of it should fill us with revulsion."


Martin Niemoller (1892-1984) was a prominent Lutheran pastor in Germany. He emerged as a prominent outspoken foe of Adolf Hitler and spent the last seven years of Nazi rule in concentration camps.

He was famous for a statement he made often in his speeches. I'm sure you've heard it. In fact, it's inscribed in the lobby wall of the US Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington DC. But it bears repeating.

First they came for the socialists, And I did not speak out---because I was not a socialist.

Then they came for the trade unionists, And I did not speak out---because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, And I did not speak out---because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me ---and there was no one left to speak for me.

There is an element in America who are trying to transform the Christian Church into something the Lord never intended it to become.

It's time to speak out.

I'll be talking more about this morning on our live radio program---delayed in some cities.
