Roe v. Wade and the Origin of the American Abortion Movement

An estimated 100,000 plus Pro-Life Americans marched on Capitol Hill today to reflect and challenge what some call the worst SCOTUS decision since the Dred Scott v. Sandford case of 1857, Roe v. Wade. An estimated 60 million abortions have been performed since Norma McCorvey who was known as Jane Roe in the 1973 case that legalized abortions in the United States. Norma McCorvey never got an abortion. Her daughter is now 48 years old. Roe v. Wade is based on a lie.

So how did the abortion movement get a foothold in America and why?

Margaret Sanger is the founder of Planned Parenthood. Margaret Sanger was a racist and eugenicist. She didn’t hide her opinions. She organized with them.

In her own words: Woman, Morality, and Birth Control. New York: New York Publishing Company, 1922. Page 12:

“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.”

"The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it."

Woman and the New Race, ch. 6:

‘The Wickedness of Creating Large Families.’ Here, Sanger argues that, “because the conditions of large families tend to involve poverty and illness, it is better for everyone involved if a child’s life is snuffed out before he or she has a chance to pose difficulties to its family. [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.”

“Plan for Peace” from Birth Control Review (April 1932, pg.107-108)

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.

“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.

April 1932 Birth Control Review, pg. 108

Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race.


The Center for Garden State Families has to ask:

Which race?

Below Margaret Sanger talks about those who are of less quality than others; i.e.; handicapped, mentally ill, chronically depressed, or with incurable illnesses being a burden on the more worthy of society.

  • Pivot of Civilization, 1922 “Here, Margaret Sanger speaks on her eugenic philosophy – that only the types of “quality” people she and her peers viewed as worthy of life should be allowed to live. Such parents swell the pathetic ranks of the unemployed. Feeble-mindedness perpetuates itself from the ranks of those who are blandly indifferent to their racial responsibilities. And it is largely this type of humanity we are now drawing upon to populate our world for the generations to come. In this orgy of multiplying and replenishing the earth, this type is pari passu multiplying and perpetuating those direst evils in which we must, if civilization is to survive, extirpate by the very roots.”

  • The Need for Birth Control in America (quoted by Angela Franks.) “Women of the working class, especially wage workers, should not have more than two children at most. The average working man can support no more and the average working woman can take care of no more in decent fashion.”

  • “Family Limitation,” eighth edition revised, 1918 “Of course, it is also a nuisance to have to trouble about the date of the menstrual period. …. But it is far more sordid to find yourself several years later burdened down with half a dozen unwanted children, helpless, starved, shoddily clothed, dragging at your skirt, yourself a dragged out shadow of the woman you once were.”

The real irrefutable ugly truth behind Planned Parenthood shows the disproportionate number of minorities this organization kills and how it sets up shop in poor neighborhoods. According to a report by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, in 2012, far more African American babies were killed by abortion—31,328—than were born—24,758.

Meanwhile, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that in New York City, 78 percent of the abortions in 2011 were to black and Hispanic children.

By the way, the redoubtable Rev. Walter Hoye of Oakland, California notes that abortion kills more black Americans in three days than the Klan killed under Jim Crow in 86 years. That is the real legacy of Margaret Sanger, and Planned Parenthood.
