Here is Joan Conroy on planned parenthood
This might be considered a very provocative statement concerning Margart Sanger but lets read a few words that she has said:
It [charity] encourages the healthier and more normal sections of the world to shoulder the burden of unthinking and indiscriminate fecundity of others; which brings with it, as I think the reader must agree, a dead weight of human waste. Instead of decreasing and aiming to eliminate the stocks that are most detrimental to the future of the race and the world, it tends to render them to a menacing degree dominant [emphasis added].
The most serious charge that can be brought against modern “benevolence” is that is encourages the perpetuation of defectives, delinquents and dependents. These are the most dangerous elements in the world community, the most devastating curse on human progress and expression.
There will be more to see on the subject tomorrow. I’ve put it up for a reason. And the reason will be apparent with tomorrow’s posts.
My review of the movie Michael Collins staring Liam Neeson in the title role is available at Amazon.com here.
Always remember with movies like this that they are not a substitute for the actual history. If you want history , read history, if you want movies watch movies.
Not bad for the 5th straight day of protest in a small city is it?
And what in fact are we protesting, maybe stuff like this:
A new report by the International Planned Parenthood Federation is advocating that children as young as 10 be given extensive sex education, including an awareness of sex’s pleasures.emphasis mine
because we all know how mature and restrained children are concerning their pleasures.
And it’s not as if planned parenthood isn’t doing things illegal these days: Oh Wait:
A Planned Parenthood clinic in Alabama has been put on probation by the state after an undercover sting helped reveal that underage teens had been receiving abortions there without parental consent.
State health officials said the Birmingham, Ala., abortion clinic has until next week to present its plan to correct violations involving minors receiving abortions.
Anyone who thinks kids raised on the internet don’t have access to sex information is out of their mind.
…and the 80’s a tad differently that his son might:
Not this time. Ron Reagan, now a talk show host in Seattle, got the ball rolling when he told Joy Behar of CNN Headline News that his dad wouldn’t have approved of either Sarah Palin or the “Tea Party” movement now roiling American politics. “Oh, I think he would be unamused by the tea partiers with their Hitler signs and all the rest of it,” Mr. Reagan told Ms. Behar. “No, I don’t think he’d be cottoning to that much at all.”
As for the Republican Party today, Mr. Reagan called it a “true train wreck” and said both Ms. Palin and new Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown were symbols of the decline of the GOP.
Mind you he is saying that the person who was only surpassed by Clinton and was SOLELY RESPONSIBLE for the period that John McCain had a shot (until he threw it away with the stimulus vote) and the person who was able to break the democratic hold on the Massachusetts delegation in congress as “symbols of the decline of the GOP? What planet is he living on? The same one as the commentator who claimed I never read her book.
But Michael Reagan, a talk show host on the other side of the political spectrum, took sharp issue with that analysis. “I believe he would embrace the Tea Party movement, if he were alive today, and support the work of Sarah Palin, Scott Brown and others who espouse conservative principles, who are opening up the eyes of the public to what is happening to our nation,” Mr. Reagan said in a statement. “There’s no doubt that President Reagan would respect the power and political potency of this movement.”
If Ron Reagan wants to know about the tea parties and the people therein he could do no better than to read Glenn Reynolds today.
