Eugenics: The Real Reason for Legalized Abortion

By Mark Crutcher | September 3, 2010 | 3:41pm EDT
For almost 40 years, we’ve been told that the legalization of abortion was about “reproductive freedom” and “women’s rights” and “choice.”  Now, an explosive new documentary is exposing this rhetoric as nothing more than marketing hype designed to conceal a nasty hidden agenda. 
With a mountain of documentation, Maafa 21, is proving to audiences all across America that the real motivation behind the legalization of abortion was eugenics and racial genocide.  In just over two hours, the documentary shows that the legalization of abortion was part of a campaign that had been created, promoted, and financed by a small cartel of ultra-wealthy elitists. 
Most frightening of all, Maafa 21 shows that this effort continues today with massive financial and political backing from a new generation of ultra-wealthy elitists.
Viewers are also stunned to learn that it was the American eugenics movement that gave rise to the Nazi effort to create “racial purity” and that this effort was in large measure funded with dollars from American corporations.  They also learn that the first anti-abortion organizations in America were radical civil-rights groups of the 1960s whose leaders had seen that eugenics and black genocide were the driving forces behind the call for legalized abortion. 
Some people are also surprised to learn about the numerous links among America’s number one abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, its founder Margaret Sanger, and the American eugenics movement.  They learn that Sanger gave a speech to a chapter of the Ku Klux Klan and was then invited back to speak to 12 “similar groups,” as she wrote in her autobiography.
They learn that Planned Parenthood was an integral part of the sterilization boards that operated in more than 30 states.  They learn that Sanger once tried to merge Planned Parenthood with the American Eugenics Society.           
The revelations go on and on and each one is fully documented.
The reality is that Maafa 21 is a primer on power, corruption and betrayal.  Ironically, within days after the first edition of Maafa 21 was released, U.S Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was being interviewed by a reporter for The New York Times and made the following statement when asked about Roe vs. Wade – the decision that legalized abortion: Frankly, I had thought that at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of.”
Here is the most radical abortion proponent that’s ever been on the Supreme Court openly conceding that the arguments made in Maafa 21 are absolutely accurate.  She is admitting that the legalization of abortion was not about women’s rights or reproductive freedom; it was about eliminating certain groups of people.  In other words, it was about eugenics.
More than 20,000 copies of Maafa 21 have already been distributed on DVD, and it is being shown in theaters, churches, college campuses and conventions across the country.  It has even been shown twice in the Congressional Visitors Center in Washington, DC.  Audience reactions run the gamut from sadness to shock to rage. 
There is no disputing that the content of Maafa 21 can be a little overwhelming, but it “connects the dots” in a way that makes it clear why the abortion holocaust is happening. 
Legalized abortion has killed 50 million unborn children so far in America and it kills over 3,000 more every day.  At least now, people will no longer be able to deceive themselves into thinking that this is happening for one reason when, in reality, it is happening for a totally different and totally unrelated reason.
In the final analysis, Maafa 21 does what all good documentaries do: It exposes what the media have been hiding and tells you what the political establishment doesn’t want you to know.  To learn more, go to
