Some background information:

Eugenics is the selective breeding of humans for desirable traits. Eugenics includes sterilizing people deemed unfit for reproduction, like criminals, people with physical and mental health problems, and poor people.

The United States was the first country in the world to implement eugenics in 1907 in Indiana. From that time until the 1970s, millions of people were sterilized. Eugenics is constitutional, as ruled by the Supreme Court in 1927 in Buck v. Bell.

Eugenics in the United States: not the past, but the present


by Sarah CrawfordThursday, December 01, 2011

Most Americans are unaware of the Eugenics programs that were implemented in the 1920s and continued until the 1970s. Even fewer are cognizant of the fact that eugenics is still practiced in the United States today. The Eugenics Movement is more subdued than it was nearly 90 years ago and there are different pseudonyms that disguise the practice, but the fact remains that the Eugenics movement in the United States is alive and well – and taking your tax dollars.

Under the guise of “reproductive health,” the United States has never stopped the government-sanctioned eugenics programs. Over $300 million of taxpayer money goes to family planning programs that are intentionally used suppress the birthrate in low-income, minority families. Abortion proponents like the Guttmacher Institute have deemed this category of citizens the most “at risk” for unintended pregnancies, and requiring the most amount of government-funded family planning programs.

Although the family planning money is strictly intended for contraceptives, much of it ends up at Planned Parenthood, America's number one abortion chain. It is no secret that Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger, was a self-proclaimed eugenicist, but many erroneously believe that those views died with her. Sanger trained under Swiss eugenicists who glorified and helped shape the Nazi view of the world. It stands as a testament that today while 80 percent of Planned Parenthood facilities are located in low-income, minority areas, and nearly 40 percent of all black babies are killed by abortion, that eugenics is still practiced throughout the nation.

Suppressing birthrates of racial minorities is not the only intent of eugenics. Today, over 90 percent of children prenatally diagnosed with Down syndrome are aborted. New tests are emerging that allow women to see if their child may be born with Down syndrome, autism, other cognitive disabilities, or even physical ailments. These tests are advertised as a way to determine whether a child is “suitable” for a “quality life” and whether such a disability would suit his or her parents’ lifestyle.

Sterilization programs that were practiced in North Carolina in the 1960s were recently in the news. These programs were meant to keep “undesirables”– blacks, mentally handicapped people, and low-income women – from having children and passing on these “undesirable” traits. People are appalled that something so immoral could be implemented on a group of people who were their neighbors, friends, and family. Yet, they continue to allow Planned Parenthood and other abortion facilities into their neighborhoods and communities with the main objective to decrease the number of minority and low-income pregnancies and births.

Sick children are being discharged from NHS hospitals to die at home or in hospices on controversial ‘death pathways’.

Until now,->-> end of life regime the Liverpool Care Pathway was thought to have involved only elderly and terminally-ill adults.

But the Mail can reveal-> the practice of withdrawing food and fluid by tube is being used on young patients as well as severely disabled newborn babies.

Sick children and babies are being discharged from NHS hospitals to die at home or in hospices on controversial 'death pathways'

One doctor has admitted starving and dehydrating ten babies to death in the neonatal unit of one hospital alone.

Writing in a leading medical journal, the physician revealed the process can take an average of ten days during which a baby becomes ‘smaller and shrunken’.

The LCP – on which 130,000 elderly and terminally-ill adult patients die each year – is now the subject of an independent inquiry ordered by ministers.

Doctors 'are withholding treatment from dying cancer patients because they think it is futile to continue'

The investigation, which will include child patients, will look at whether cash payments to hospitals to hit death pathway targets have influenced doctors’ decisions.

Medical critics of the LCP insist it is impossible to say when a patient will die and as a result the LCP death becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. They say it is a form of euthanasia, used to clear hospital beds and save the NHS money.

The use of end of life care methods on disabled newborn babies was revealed in the doctors’ bible, the British Medical Journal.

Earlier this month, an un-named doctor wrote of the agony of watching the protracted deaths of babies. The doctor described one case of a baby born with ‘a lengthy list of unexpected congenital anomalies’, whose parents agreed to put it on the pathway.

The doctor wrote:‘They wish for their child to die quickly once the feeding and fluids are stopped. They wish for pneumonia. They wish for no suffering. They wish for no visible changes to their precious baby.

According to a BMJ article, a doctor had presided over ten such

What is the big deal? Here in Carter county we have been selectively breeding our kin to promote desirable traits for generations. You family may branch, ours looks like a light pole. With the right breeding program and careful upbringing, you can just about count on a 100% bona fide crop of rednecks! Personally, I think one green eye and one brown eye is especially attractive on a red headed woman.
