Welcome to Margaret Sanger's Brave New World

Welcome to Margaret Sanger's Brave New World

By Doug Patton

"To compel a man to furnish funds for the propagation of ideas he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical." — Thomas Jefferson

So why is anyone surprised to learn that Planned Parenthood "doctors" may be killing babies on the operating table after they are born? The current President of the United States favored the practice back home in Illinois, as evidenced by his strenuous opposition to the Born Alive Infant Protection Act put forth in the Illinois State Senate when he was a part of that body. (It was one of the few times he didn't vote "present," so you know he must have been passionate about it.)

The macabre possibility that Planned Parenthood physicians may be committing infanticide was inadvertently brought to light by one of the organization's lobbyists, one Alisa LaPolt Snow, during her testimony before the Florida State House of Representatives, which is considering a bill similar to the one Obama stood against. The proposed "Infants Born Alive" bill would extend protection to live infants born in the wake of a failed abortion.

"If a baby is born, on a table, as a result of a botched abortion," Florida Rep. Jim Boyd asked Snow, "what would Planned Parenthood want to have happen to that child that is struggling for life?"

Her knee-jerk, talking-points answer: "We believe that any decision that's made should be left up to the woman, her family, and the physician."

Rep. Daniel Davis pressed her further: "What happens in a situation where a baby is alive, breathing on a table, moving? What do your physicians do at that point?"

Snow's answer: "I do not have that information."

And when asked by another lawmaker if, in addition to the mother, the baby also would at that point become the patient, she again replied, "I really don't have the answer to that."

I repeat: why is anyone surprised? After all, Planned Parenthood is a breathtakingly evil organization founded nearly a century ago by Margaret Sanger, a racist devotee of Adolf Hitler and the eugenics movement, who envisioned a world where physically and mentally challenged individuals and people of color would simply be aborted, sterilized or eliminated. She once stated that sterilization of the "unfit" would be the "salvation of American civilization."

She had equal contempt for people of faith, calling "reckless and irresponsible" anyone "whose religious scruples prevent them from control of their numbers," stating that "there is no doubt in the minds of all thinking people that the procreation of this group should be stopped." Rarely has such a cold-hearted, wicked woman been as lionized as has Margaret Sanger.

Today, Planned Parenthood performs more abortions than any other single entity in the country, making them an incredibly profitable enterprise. And yet our federal government handed them more than half a billion dollars of our hard-earned tax money last year.

This is the same organization that was caught on tape a few years ago facilitating the sexual abuse of children by counseling underage teen girls to quietly have abortions to hide pregnancies caused by their over-21 boyfriends, teachers, male relatives — whomever! And still they receive hundreds of millions of our tax dollars.

This is an organization that specializes in aborting black babies, as evidenced by so many Planned Parenthood clinics located in the inner city. And still they receive hundreds of millions of our tax dollars.

Ceasing to give Planned Parenthood our tax money seems like such a simple thing. John Boehner and his merry band of Republican "leaders" in the U.S. House of Representatives, tasked by the Constitution with the power of the purse strings, could simply choose not to fund this monstrosity any longer. But even in cases where state governments have voted to cut off funds to this organization, tyrannical judges have frequently stepped in and forced them to continue the funding. At some point, this nation's patriots will have to defy that tyranny and simply say "no!"

From Margaret Sanger to Barack Obama, this is the world the left has created for us. It is a twisted, amoral utopia, where right is wrong and wrong is right, where good is evil and evil is good, where fully born babies can be murdered in abortion mills.

Welcome to Margaret Sanger's brave new world.
