In an interview that was published in Sunday’s New York Times Magazine (July 5, 2009), Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said she thought the landmark Roe v. Wade decision on abortion was predicated on the Supreme Court majority’s desire to diminish “populations that we don’t want to have too many of.” Of course, there is nothing new in what Ginsburg said. The American Birth Control League (which eventually became Planned Parenthood), the brainchild of birth-control and abortion advocate Margaret Sanger, was founded on identical sentiments. In 1939 Sanger started “The Negro Project.” She called on black preachers to support sterilization:
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 do not want 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.
The authors of Freakonomics, which has sold more than three million copies, assert that there might be a link between legalized abortion and the reduction of crime. This is logical. If crimes are committed by people who are alive, and you kill some of them before they can commit crimes, crime will be reduced. Since more crimes are committed by “certain groups” (also see here), it would be best to target those groups for abortions. Ginsburg would probably agree. Sanger certainly did, and apparently Obama’s science dictator, I mean “czar,” does as well. Ben Johnson, writing for FrontPage Magazine, has shown Holdren and Paul and Anne Ehrlich maintained
“there exists ample authority under which population growth could be regulated.” Hiding behind the passive voice, they note, “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.” (Emphasis added.) To underscore they mean business, they conclude, “If some individuals contribute to general social deterioration by overproducing children, and if the need is compelling, they can be required by law to exercise reproductive responsibility” (pp. 837–838). Moreover, if the United States government refuses to take proper measures, they authorize the United Nations to take compelling force.
This all reminds me of scene from the film Dr. Strangelove where plans are being made for saving only the best people in anticipation of a nuclear war. Strangelove’s arrangement for post-nuclear war survival involves living underground with a 10:1 female-to-male ratio. “It is, you know, a sacrifice required for the future of the human race.”
Ginsburg, Holden, and liberals in general are being outbred by “undesirables.” At least one very liberal columnist has noticed the problem:
[F]or the past 30 years or so, conservatives—particularly those of the right-wing red-state Christian strain—have been out-breeding liberals by a margin of at least 20 percent, if not far more. . . . One theory goes like this: Libs are generally more socially conscious and hence tend to actually give a modicum of thought to what it means to pop out a brood of children in this modern overstuffed age. Also, many other liberal bohos are (admittedly) happy selfish suckwads who want all the modern booty for themselves and won’t want to give up the Ducati and the plasma and the biannual trip to Cinque Terre for the sake of a pod of rug rats and 15 grand a year (each) for private kindergarten. Translation: Libs just aren’t procreating like they could/should be.
When do you think people will catch on? A billboard located in minority neighborhoods might get some people to think about what they are doing when they decide to kill their preborn babies. Some black leaders, including Jesse Jackson at one time, described abortion as “black genocide.” Here are a few statistics that African Americans might not be aware of:
- Between 1882 and 1968, 3,446 Blacks were lynched in the U.S. That number is surpassed in less than 3 days by abortion.
- 1,452 African-American children are killed each day by abortion.
- 3 out of 5 pregnant African-American women will abort their child.
- Since 1973 there have been over 13 million Black children killed and their mothers victimized by the U.S. abortion industry.
How long do you think abortion would be legal in America if Blacks actually thought about the long-term consequences of this government-supported act designed to eliminate them and other undesirables as “human weeds”? I wonder how many Blacks knew the disproportionate statistics before they voted for Obama and his radical proactive pro-abortion views. I wonder how many upper class Blacks knew it and voted for him because of his views on abortion and because they disdain lower class Blacks except when they vote to keep them in office.
 Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner, Freakonomics: A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything (New York: William Morrow, 2005), chap. 4. There are those who dispute their findings on linking abortion to a decline in the crime rate. But for this article it does not matter. It’s what the authors claimed and many people wanted to believe because they are religiously connected to abortion on demand as they see it as their bloody sacrament.

 “Those advocates of taking life prior to birth do not call it killing or murder,” Jackson said in 1977, “they call it abortion. They further never talk about aborting a baby because that would imply something human. Rather they talk about aborting the fetus. Fetus sounds less than human and therefore abortion can be justified.”
