Why touch the untouchables when you can eliminate them?

This kind of stuff is really disturbing.  The story is now making the rounds regarding Justice Ginsburg’s recent statements about abortion.  If you haven’t heard about it yet, let me fill you in on the part that has everyone talking:

Yes, the ruling about that surprised me. [Harris v. McRae – in 1980 the court upheld the Hyde Amendment, which forbids the use of Medicaid for abortions.] 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. So that Roe was going to be then set up for Medicaid funding for abortion. Which some people felt would risk coercing women into having abortions when they didn’t really want them. But when the court decided McRae, the case came out the other way. And then I realized that my perception of it had been altogether wrong. (emphasis added)

There is no way to get around what she is saying.  In fact, people who understand the history of the abortion debate cannot miss the parallel with Ginsburg’s comments and those of the founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger:

In 1939, Margaret designed a “Negro Project” in
response to requests from “southern state public
health oflicials”—~,~n not generally known for their
racial equanimity. The mass of Negroes,” her project
proposal asserted, “particularly in the South, still
breed carelessly and disastrously, with the result that
the increase among Negroes, even more than among
Whites, is from that portion of the population least
intelligent and fit.” The proposal went on to say that
“Public Health statistics merely hint at the primitive
state of civilization in which most Negroes in the
South live. (p. 73 excerpted from the book Killer Angel, available at http://www.entrewave.com/freebooks/docs/a_pdfs/ggka.pdf)

I am afraid that very few realize how shady the origins of Planned Parenthood and the legalized abortion industry really is.  I have written about abortion before, but I haven’t really touched on this issue to my memory.  This isn’t compassion or protecting a woman’s right to choose.  According to Justice Ginsburg (someone who is in position to protect abortion and has done so), abortion is about controlling the growth of populations “that we don’t want to have too many of.”

And lest you think that this is isolated.  It appears that the current administration wants to move further in this direction.  Among the many czars that Obama has appointed (czars who are unconstitutional and unaccountable to us) is a man who once openly advocated for forced population control/reduction a la the one child policy in China that results in forced abortions.  The man is the new “science czar,” whatever that is, who said the following:

“There exists ample authority under which population growth could be regulated,” wrote Obama appointee John Holdren, as reported by FrontPage Magazine. “It has been concluded that compulsory population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing Constitution if the population crisis became sufficiently severe to endanger the society.”

You can check out the article linked in the quote and also the news story about the czar at WorldNetDaily, which my wife pointed out to me yesterday.  Honestly, it appears we are watching the death spirial of the US.  The republic that our founders created no longer exists in any form that they would recognize and we are not seeing any movement to bring it back.  But while I am pessimistic about our country, I am confident about my future for one good reason.  I know whom I have entrusted my life to for the long haul.  In the words of the Apostle Paul,

8Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord, nor of me his prisoner, but share in suffering for the gospel by the power of God, 9 who saved us and called us to a holy calling, not because of our works but because of his own purpose and grace, which he gave us in Christ Jesus before the ages began, 10and which now has been manifested through the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, who abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel, 11 for which I was appointed a preacher and apostle and teacher, 12 which is why I suffer as I do. But I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed, and I am convinced that he is able to guard until that Day what has been entrusted to me. 13 Follow the pattern of the sound words that you have heard from me, in the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus. 14By the Holy Spirit who dwells within us, guard the good deposit entrusted to you. (2 Timothy 1:8-14)

One thought on “Why touch the untouchables when you can eliminate them?

  1. Amen, Jeff!

    Things may not look so good here, but this place isn’t the source and goal of our lives…He is.

    But, we still battle on until the appointed time when our Lord will usher in His New Kingdom.

    What a Glorious Day that will be!

    Come Lord Jesus, come!
