The memo appears to be legit but I haven’t been able to find its original source. Read it.
This memo has all sorts of blood chilling suggestions- blood chilling if the culture of death does not run through your veins, that is. Ideas on controlling world population include:
Fertility control agents in the water supply
Encourage women to work
Require women to work and provide few child care facilities
Compulsory abortion of out-of-wedlock pregnancies
Compulsory sterilization of all who have two children- except for a few who would be allowed three
Discouragement of private home ownership
Allow certain contraceptives to be distributed non-medically
Make contraception truly available to all
Some of my more predictable readers will go through that list and their eyes will simply glaze over for most of it. With their eyes in a fog as they instinctively declare the above as merely an instance of “Godwin’s Law” but their blood started boiling when they saw on the list “Encourage women to work.”
Dear God, who could be against that? And who could be against making contraception available to everyone? Clearly, this blogger is a bigot.
Apparently, a letter has been written to GOP leaders by conservative homosexuals and some tea-party activists requesting that the GOP lay off its traditional pro-life stance. That would be horrible for many reasons. One reason: In actuality, de-emphasizing life issues is a threat to conservative notions about limited government and individual liberty.
The very first thing that has to be made clear is that those in the culture of death themselves strongly believe that social issues and economic issues are linked. The pro-death camp is perfectly able to present their “social issues” in economic terms. Not only are they able, but they are happy to do so.
A brief glance at history reveals this to be utterly obvious and conclusively true. To take one prominent example, the eugenics movement was very concerned about improving the race, but it was more than that. Activists’ position on these “social issues” was closely connected to the economic realities on the ground as they perceived them, as this quote from Margaret Sanger (founder of Planned Parenthood) will quickly corroborate:
The problem of the dependent, delinquent and defective elements in modern society, we must repeat, cannot be minimized because of their small numerical proportion to the rest of the population. … The actual dangers can only be fully realized when we have acquired definite information concerning the financial and cultural cost of these classes to the community, when we become fully cognizant of the burden of the imbecile upon the whole human race; when we see the funds that should be available for human development, for scientific artistic and philosophic research, being diverted annually, by hundreds of millions of dollars, to the care and segregation of men, women, and children who never should have been born.
