A small quiz:

Who do you think made the following statement about blacks, immigrants and indigents?

"Human weeds … spawning class of human beings who never should have been born at all.”

Who said that they should enlist black ministers to sell black women on the prospect of abortion and the use of contraceptives in what was dubbed “The Negro Project”?

“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.”

Who said, “The eugenists wanted to shift the birth control emphasis from less children for the poor to more children for the rich. We went back off that and sought first to stop the multiplication of the unfit. This appeared the most important and greatest step towards race betterment”?

Was it Adolph Hitler, Joseph Stalin or some rabid white supremacist bent on purification and perfecting a “master race”?

Actually, it was Margaret Sanger, a woman, hailed as a hero in the ranks of feminism, who has coveted awards named after her, is revered by many prominent people in Washington and who founded the nation's largest abortion mill, Planned Parenthood.

Margaret Sanger's views on the controlled birth of children bordered on Nazism, and her views on religion and marital fidelity were akin to hedonism.

She made this statement: “The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.” And she was a closet advocate of black genocide.

Planned Parenthood is lauded by abortion advocates – and most liberal politicians – as the much needed purveyor of reproductive services. It has powerful proponents in high places and generous federal funding.

Actually, in Sanger’s mind it seems, Planned Parenthood was founded not for such reasons as reproductive services but to rid the world of as many people of color, deformity and mental deficiency – including "human weeds, etc. …” as the above quotes state – as possible.

It was not widely reported in the mainstream media, but a person high up in Planned Parenthood was recently secretly videotaped callously speaking about harvesting the organs of unborn babies and selling them. She talked with no more compassion than if she were referring to dissecting a frog.

Apologists are now defending the statement, saying that the conversation was taken out of context, but the harvesting and sale of fetal organs actually was the context, so no such thing was possible.

I will admit that I am an opponent of abortion – except in cases where the mother's life is endangered – and basically feel that this exception is all too often used for the termination of unwanted pregnancies, a decision that – in most cases – should have been made well before conception and prevented by the abundant sources of birth control pills and devices readily available on the open market.

To me, the act of wholesale abortion is murder. It’s a petty attempt at playing God, deciding who gets to live and who dies. It’s an action that should be exclusively reserved for the Giver of life alone, who said that He knew us in our mother's womb, knit the pieces together and scheduled the days of our lives before we were born.

This latest revelation takes the aborting of unborn fetuses to a whole different level. The harvesting and sale of infant body parts for profit by an organization whose original purpose was to rid the world of races and people who, in the opinion of elitists like Margaret Sanger, didn't measure up to her standards for the right to live.

In 2013, over $540 million of our tax dollars went to keep the doors of Planned Parenthood open, and speaking for myself, I think it's high time to stop funding the butchering and exploitation of the unborn.

What do you think?

Pray for our troops and the peace of Jerusalem.

God Bless America
