    The racially charged protests that have roiled 23 universities from Yale to the University of Missouri in recent weeks reached Princeton on Wednesday. Members of the Black Justice League left their classes and occupied historic Nassau Hall, which houses the Princeton administration's offices. They demanded that officials acknowledge the racist legacy of Woodrow Wilson - who was president of Princeton before becoming president of the United States and expunge his name from anything named after him. They further demanded "cultural competency training" for anyone teaching at Princeton, courses on the "history of marginalized people," and a designated public space for...

    NEW YORK CITY, November 18, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – In response to a lower than projected Family Planning 2020 (FP2020) report, Bill Gates is spending more money on abortifacient birth control in third-world countries. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has announced additional donations over three years totaling $120 million more for their pet project, a global initiative to combat childbirth among the poorest of the world. FP 2020 had a goal of getting contraceptives to 120 million more women and girls by its namesake year. A status report showed only an additional 25 million, far short of the trajectory needed...

    WASHINGTON : Does Ben Carson have a "death panels" problem? Before he was a 2016 presidential candidate, Carson, a retired neurosurgeon, frequently raised questions about the high cost of end of life medical care ,and asked whether patients should be able to pursue every available treatment. The statements touched on many of the most sensitive questions about care for the elderly. "Do people just get to choose on their own, you know, I've been, you know, completely devoid of any mental faculties for 10 years, but want to be kept alive regardless of anything that comes down the pike?"

    So-called “progressives” love moving forward with their reconstructed versions of history. The taxpayer-funded Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery is supposed to be a place that reveres history, not revises it. That hasn’t stopped the institution from presenting to the public a false presentation of the founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger. The bust, prominently and ironically displayed in the NPG’s “Struggle For Justice” exhibit, was provided by the late Cordelia Scaife May. She was a very wealthy population control activist who “supported conservation and Planned Parenthood among other causes” according to her obituary in the Pittsburgh Post Gazette. May founded the...

    WASHINGTON, D.C., October 16, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – A majority of states may soon use tax dollars to pay for the implantation of dangerous, abortion-inducing IUDs in women immediately after childbirth. The journal Contraception reports that Medicaid now pays for IUDs to be inserted into women following delivery in 19 states. Eight more states are poised to follow suit. Not one state used taxpayer money for IUDs before the Obama administration took office. Within 10 minutes of delivery, doctors are implanting either copper IUDs or chemical-releasing IUDs in women. But potential health complications for the mother are magnified when IUDs are...

    (CNSNews.com) – Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger opposed the Catholic Church for decades because of its moral teachings and its theology in general, to the point that in 1960, when John F. Kennedy, a Catholic, ran for president, Sanger said if he were elected, she would “find another place to live.”Sanger (1879-1966), in her many writings and speeches, frequently attacked the Catholic Church, describing it as among the “arch-enemies to hinder the progress of enlightenment” and determined to destroy America’s “liberties” and establish its own “rules & dominion.”  In early July 1960, when then-Senator John F.

    Ben Carson alleged in an interview with Fox News Wednesday that Planned Parenthood puts most of its clinics in black neighborhoods to "control the population" and that its founder, Margaret Sanger, "was not particularly enamored with black people." Planned Parenthood has been a target on the campaign trail after a series of sting videos was released alleging the organization illegally profits from selling aborted fetal tissue. Carson, a famed neurosurgeon turned Republican presidential candidate, has been a vocal opponent of the group. He was also in the news this week after reports surfaced that he once used aborted fetal tissue...

    There is a haunting familiarity to the arguments defending Planned Parenthoods sale of body parts from aborted babies for medical research: an echo of another era of medical innovation amid moral ambiguity. Then, as now, the response of cultural leaders especially religious leaders is a story about the corruption, and potential renewal, of Western civilization. Today were told there is no other way to achieve the research results we desire, because fetal tissue is a uniquely rich source of stem cells, which provide invaluable clues to human development. Second, were led to believe that research on aborted babies...

    Now that the left is demanding no memorializing of those who defended slavery and racism, it is time to turn the spotlight on Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, who sought to use abortion and birth control to limit the black population as undesirables.  Sanger was openly and explicitly racist, and her eugenics movement enjoyed the support of progressives of the era.  It is no coincidence that today Planned Parenthood aborts a much higher percentage of black babies than the black share of the U.S. population.

Planned Parenthood, the nation's #1 killer of unborn children, is caught selling aborted babies' organs and entire intact bodies and liberals sound like Nazis: "ALL IN THE NAME OF SCIENCE!" The Center for Medical Progress, conducting investigative journalism because billion-dollar mainstream media has no interest in investing in the truth, continues to open our eyes and convict our souls (at least some of us) with the 5th video release detailing Planned Parenthood's inhumanity.

A couple of years ago, Margaret Sanger was named one of Time magazines 20 Most Influential Americans of All Time. Given her enduring influence, its worth considering what the woman who founded Planned Parenthood contributed to the eugenics movement. Sanger shaped the eugenics movement in America and beyond in the 1930s and 1940s. Her views and those of her peers in the movement contributed to...

Back then, all of the experts were warning that our planet couldn't take much more. And no one sounded that alarm...

    (CNN)It looks like it has happened again. A young male has allegedly killed. In this case it is nine people at a church in South Carolina. Anyone who is paying attention hears the news and thinks, "Here we go again." But why? After spending 20 years interviewing killers as a psychological expert witness in murder cases I have some thoughts about this. Males are disproportionately over-represented in the ranks of America's killers -- about 90%, in fact. Why is that? Some of it appears to lie in the biological vulnerability of males. About 30% of males (versus 9% of females)...

Jami Weaver claims that the agreement fell through when she learned her unborn child was diagnosed with gastroschisis (a congenital deformity where the bowel protrudes through the abdominal wall) last summer. 'Rosie told me she could not handle having a special needs child,' she said. Perhaps if shed have done some research, ODonnell would have discovered that babies with gastroschisis have a 90 percent survival rate,...

In “The Unrealized Horrors of Population Explosion” the newspaper has finally (several decades too late) thrown population control on the ash heap of discredited ideas. The article included a video interview with Paul Ehrlich, the author of The Population Bomb. He was the butterfly scientist from Stanford who scared tens of millions with the specter of overpopulation—and the population apocalypse that would supposedly result.

    A documentary film series produced in 2013, but one I have only recently viewed, maintains that the modern churchs stand in accepting birth control is contrary to centuries of early church teaching. Birth Control The Movie was directed by Kevin Peeples based on his own personal journey to answer the question: As a Christian, is birth control up to us? Little did he realize that his journey coincided with producers Scott Matthew Dix and Nathan Nicholson. The series consists of two DVDs: BIRTH CONTROL: How Did We Get Here?, which looks into why there is no fundamental difference between the...

    Officials within the UN are pushing the notion that the human population should be reduced in order to effectively combat climate change. The long standing notion has been continually pushed by Christiana Figueres, the Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC). In 2013, Figueres had a conversation with Climate One founder Greg Dalton regarding fertility rates in population, as a contributor to climate change. The comments are made at 4.20 into the following video: Climate One Interview

    Woe to those who call evil good and good evil; who put darkness for light and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter” (Isaiah 5:20). Turning right and wrong upside down is a human habit that goes back thousands of years. Modern times are no different. Famous evolutionary biologist and professor of Oxford University, Richard Dawkins, recently showed his hand in a twitter conversation that has gained media attention. The British Broadcasting Corporation, a public service broadcaster among many others in the United Kingdom, reported that a twitter user said to Dawkins, “I honestly don’t...

    Tomorrow is World Down Syndrome Day and awareness of trisomy 21 (the proper name of the disease) has never been more critical. Trisomy 21 causes physical growth delay, characteristic facial deformities, and mild to moderate intellectual disability. On average, a person with trisomy 21 will have the intelligence of a normal 8 or 9 year old child, though this varies widely some have graduated high school.I do not know a single family with a child with trisomy 21 who has not regarded them as a joy, much less regretted their existence. The expression "ray of sunshine" has become...

    March 11, 2015 (ALL.org) -- If you have ever heard the word “eugenics,” you probably know that it is a heinous act. And in the 21st century, we’re supposed to be more sophisticated and better behaved than the Nazis or the 18th and 19th century Americans who plotted massive exterminations of the “undesirable” population. In today’s world, where individuals have a host of legal “rights,” it might seem safe to revisit such goals as purifying the human race of genetic defects, preventing births in locations designated by scientists as overpopulated, and using abortion and contraception (often the same thing) to...

    Lewis Reynolds didn't understand what had been done to him when he was 13. Years later, after getting married, the Lynchburg man discovered he couldn't father children. The reason: He had been sterilized by the state. Reynolds was among more than 7,000 Virginians involuntarily sterilized between 1924 and 1979 under the Virginia Eugenical Sterilization Act. Advocates for the surviving victims won a three-year fight Thursday when the Virginia General Assembly budgeted $400,000 to compensate them at the rate of $25,000 each. It's welcome news, Reynolds said. "I think they done me wrong," he said. "I couldn't have a family like...

    Anna Duggar has done it now. Online "entertainment" news sites are up in arms that a woman would actually express her…gasp…opinion via Twitter! The Duggars are known for being unapologetically pro-life, and they are absurdly hated by those who rabidly defend a choice their mothers never made (ironically being alive to spew their pro-abortion nonsense). What did Anna do that has E! Online, RadarOnline, FishWrapper, InTouchWeekly and even Mommyish and Opposing Views so riled? She retweeted a Black History Month meme that I created and posted, via The Radiance Foundation, to highlight abortion’s devastating impact in the black community. “Human...

    One Sunday, Robert Latimer carried his 12-year-old daughter to the family pickup truck parked in the barn. He placed the girl, disabled by cerebral palsy, in the vehicle and started the engine. He closed the doors and asphyxiated Tracy to death. Latimer become something of a hero among many Canadians, supported as a loving father for murdering his daughter, for which he served time in prison. Now the child killer has come out in support of the recent Canadian Supreme Court decision that will bring doctor-facilitated death to Canadas disabled, elderly, dying, and mentally ill despairing citizens. From the CKOM...

    A mother of six with an IQ of 70 should be sterilised for her own safety, the Court of Protection has ruled. The Court heard that a further pregnancy would be a "significantly life-threatening event" for both the mother and child. Mr Justice Cobb said the woman had the "same human rights" as everyone else and this was not a case of "eugenics". He has authorised health and council services to intervene and perform the sterilisation. The name of the woman has not been released, to protect the identify of her children.

    In the United Kingdom, a mother-of-six will be taken to the hospital and forced to undergo a sterilization.In 2014, the department of health and social services applied for permission to enter the woman’s home and take her to get sterilized against her will. The woman, who has not been identified, reportedly has a learning disability.At a hearing at the Court of Protection, they argued that sterilization is necessary because the woman’s health would be put at risk if she had more children. However, John McKendrick, who represented a health authority, hospital trust and council said the application for sterilization was...

    I sometimes gauge the virtue of a particular public policy by posing a hypothetical question: What if we promoted this policy exclusively within a disadvantaged sector? Secular progressives love assisted suicide. They fawned all over Brittany Maynards decision to take her own life last year, declaring the beauty of such a thoughtful, pensive, decision. After all, any decision that requires so much deep thought and garners a large online following must be the right one. So heres the test. What if we marketed assisted suicide as an option, especially to inner-city blacks? Television commercials and billboards could tout a peaceful...

    According to Black Genocide, Planned Parenthood situates 78% of its abortion clinics in minority neighborhoods. It is almost as if Planned Parenthood is targeting black and brown babies. And perhaps it is. Margaret Sanger, the founder of PP shockingly said, "Colored people are like human weeds and are to be exterminated." She created the Negro Project to sterilize unwitting black women and others she considered undesirable. Her motto was grotesque as well as Hitler-esque: "More children from the fit, less from the unfit." I well remember, back in 2008, when Lila Rose and LiveAction released recordings of a call an...

    The main reason that the abortion movement cannot quite disentangle itself from its roots in 19th-century eugenics is the niggling, persistent fact that it doesnt really want to. Consider this from Amanda Marcotte, who is clutching her ironically worn thrift-store pearls over the fact that Indiana may pass a law that would make it a crime for parents to kill their children over a disability. No one is well served when children with disabilities are forced on families that know they dont have the emotional or financial resources to help them. And this entire bill, which is supported by...
