Planned Parenthood no eugenics plot
It’s a shame that the Savannah Morning News would print such a misguided opinion column, full of misinformation and hysteria (“Children need more stones,” Geveryl Robinson, March 21).
Planned Parenthood works harder than any pro-life protestor ever will to help educate all communities so that they can make the best health care decisions for themselves. No one works harder than Planned Parenthood to provide the health care services that help reduce the number of unintended pregnancies while also providing cancer screenings and other essential services.
The founder of Planned Parenthood lived 80 years ago and brought birth control information and services to all those who requested them. This was a time when just talking about birth control could land you in jail and before abortion was legal. What she said about eugenics has never been a part of Planned Parenthood’s beliefs.
Women who face challenges getting affordable preventive services often face higher unintended pregnancies as well as many other preventable illnesses. Instead of using race to divide our communities, we should all be working with Planned Parenthood to ensure that all women get affordable health care services.

HERE IS THE STORY:
Robinson: Children need more stones
Author: GEVERYL ROBINSON

Albert Einstein once said, “The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing.”
I was reminded of this statement when I became aware of billboards in Fulton and DeKalb counties in Atlanta that proclaimed the following:
“Black Children Are An Endangered Species. TOOMANYABORTED.COM”
I am pro-life. I believe the abortion of any child of any race is murder.
However, in this country, abortion is legal; thus, women have the right to make that choice. In addition, I am not a conspiracy theorist, and I tend to become irritated with those people who are.
But after researching Planned Parenthood and speaking to Ryan Bomberger of The Radiance Foundation and the man responsible for the billboards, and Catherine Davis, Minority Outreach Director for Georgia Right to Life, I am 100 percent certain that Planned Parenthood targets minorities – namely, Black people.
My statement is not based on a conspiracy theory or paranoia. It’s based on facts.
Bomberger was put up for adoption after his mother was raped. He has said his campaign doesn’t target black women. Instead, it exposes an industry that he believes targets African-Americans.
During my talk with him, he added, “This is not propaganda; this is the truth. It’s amazing how people can have the truth in black and white, and still try to deny it.”
For those who may not know about Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, she was a eugenicist who spearheaded the birth control movement and Planned Parenthood for one reason. On page 12 of “Morality and Birth Control,” Sanger wrote, “Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race.”
She believed there were certain people who should not pro-create. She focused on one group in particular and put her plan, which she called the “Negro Project” in motion.
Here’s what she wrote on Dec. 19, 1939, in a letter to Dr. Clarence Gamble:
“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 billboard campaign has come under fire, and Loretta Ross, the executive director of theSisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Health Collective in Atlanta, said the billboards painted black women as either monsters intent on destroying their own race or victims of whites who control abortion clinics.
“The reason we have so many Planned Parenthoods in the black community is because leaders in the black community in the ’20s and ’30s went to Margaret Sanger and asked for them,” Ms. Ross said. “Controlling our fertility was part of our uplift out of poverty strategy, and it still works.”
I’m going to guess that Ms. Ross is probably not a Rhodes scholar. I am not aware of any correlation between abortions of black children and uplift out of the poverty strategy of the black race. As a matter of fact, I’m pretty sure blacks are at the bottom of the poverty chain. In addition, Sanger’s plan didn’t really take effect until the 1940s, so Ross’s claim that in the ’20s and ’30s black leaders went to Sanger and asked for Planned Parenthood is ludicrous.
According to the Guttmacher Institute, Planned Parenthood’s research arm, “In the United States, the abortion rate for black women is almost five times that for white women, and 43 percent of all black pregnancies end in abortion.” Those are pretty high statistics, considering that blacks nationally comprise only13 percent of the population but account for36.4 percentof all abortions.
In Georgia the toll is worse. According to the Georgia Department of Community Health,58 percentof all abortions committed in 2008 were on black women, even though blacks comprise 30 percent of the state population.
I have often wondered how many pro-life advocates would be willing to “put up or shut up. How many would be willing to adopt a child whose mother kept her child?
Some have said trying to fight against organizations like Planned Parenthood is like David battling Goliath. If people rallied to fight for things in which they believed, I’m sure Goliath would attest that it’s amazing what small stones can do.

Mothers and babies both lose in abortion

Tuesday, April 6th, 2010

As a woman, I deeply sympathize with the families of all women who lose their lives in childbirth. Thanks to medical technology, more women are having healthy deliveries at this time in history than ever before. That being said, it is hard to make the connection between death in childbirth as opposed to deaths of mothers and babies by abortions. If 1,500 women die every day worldwide in childbirth, and approximately 126,000 babies are aborted every day, how can the tragedy of abortion be overlooked? Women die by legal or illegal abortions as well. So, why are they not included in most of the statistics that are often sited?

A Canadian op-ed columnist who’s critical of Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s refusal to include abortion in his Third World maternal health program, claims that 1,500 women die every day worldwide in childbirth. The author claims the figure is easy to document, but fails to do so.

How I spent Resurrection Day this year (2010)

Monday, April 5th, 2010

When I was a little girl, my teachers often had me write reports upon return to school from Spring Break. Usually, I wrote about what I did for Easter in those reports. So, please join me on a memory lane experience while I chronicle this year’s Resurrection Day.

First, I arose and praised the Lord! I read the Bible and some meditations, including a page from Rev. Frank Pavone’s reflections on life. Then, at church, our choir (of which yours truly is a member) led a praise and worship celebration honoring His Majesty Jesus Christ our Risen Savior! At the conclusion of the musical which included song, dance and instrumental music, the Honorable Holy Spirit blessed many with salvation and healing. God made His presence known among His People!

After church, I joined members of my family at a groundbreaking ceremony for a community center named after my grandfather, Dr. Martin Luther King, Sr. We then crossed the street to lay a wreath on my Uncle Martin’s grave, and we sang For He (Jesus) is Lord and We Shall Overcome. After that many of our family members joined friends for Easter Dinner with lively conversation.

I just know that your Easter was wonderful too. God bless you.

Finally, here are some notes from RNC Chairman Michael Steele, who visited Memphis, TN and he stopped to honor my uncle, Dr. King.

Remembering April 4, 1968

Posted by: Chairman Michael Steele

On April 4, 1968, one of America’s greatest leaders and civil rights activists Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., was assassinated in Memphis, TN, at the young age of 39 years old.

Of all the horror witnessed in America’s struggle for racial equality, Dr. King’s tragic and emotional death took its toll on the American psyche. While a heartrending moment in our nation’s history, his death served to unravel the tolerance of injustice and strengthen the certainty of those allied in the cause of freedom.

The notion that each individual should be provided an opportunity to succeed, make choices, acquire dignity, responsibility, become educated, find happiness – to be free – was at the very core of Dr. King’s cause and motivation. Not only in America but across the world the eternal struggle to advance human dignity and equality is enabled by leaders like Dr. King and so many others who have sacrificed to advance human freedom.

While most people associate Memphis with Graceland, it is also the place where Dr. King lived his final moments, at the Lorraine Hotel. Today, at this historic location stands the National Civil Rights Museum, as a testament to his life and the sacrifices made by him and so many other unsung heroes in the fight for civil rights and racial equality that paved the way for me to become the Chairman of the Republican National Committee.

Recently, while in Memphis, I was able to take time out of my political schedule and pay a personal visit to this location and paid my respects. Words cannot describe what this very special place means for me and so many Americans. The visit provided a sobering reminder of how far we’ve come and how far we still have to go as a nation. As a young boy growing up in DC, I had the unique opportunity to actually attend the historic March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. I remember being on my dad’s shoulders as Dr. King and so many others spoke that day. Standing on that hallowed ground gave me a renewed sense of purpose and passion to continue the fight for freedom, for jobs, and protecting our rights guaranteed under the constitution.

On this April 4, 2010, we remember your legacy and honor you, Dr. Martin Luther King, for your heroic leadership in the cause of freedom.
