EUGENICS: Scientific Racism At It’s Best By Pastor Ray Hagins, Ph.D. The principal force behind eugenics is racism.

Eugenics is the program that is expressed through euthanasia, artificial or assisted insemination, environmental extremism, genetic engineering and coercive population policies. Eugenics shapes and determines the outcome of debates over welfare reform and health care reform. Eugenics is found in the social sciences (i.e., anthropology, sociology, and psychology). Eugenics is found in modern literature, arts and entertainment (especially science fiction). Eugenics is promoted in and through religion. Such a potent force deserves some study. The key idea is simple: We breed better roses, better tomatoes, better dogs, better horses. Why do we hesitate to breed better humans? Eugenics is false science. It is about the selective prevention or encouragement of births for social, racial, or political ends. When eugenic goals demand increased fertility, those goals may be advanced in the name of national power, race survival, or even family support programs. Eugenics is essentially concerned with competitive fertility. If it is a particular race that is to targeted, for instance, the eugenicist will first offer a "scientific" basis for such a plan -- usually consisting of statistical "evidence" that the disfavoured group is less capable of achievement, more prone to anti-social behaviour, or otherwise disproportionately responsible for a prevalent social problem. Most importantly, the eugenicist will insist that this "inferiority" is hereditary -that "excessively" high birthrates among these people will lead to a general decline in the quality of the society as a whole. Thus the eugenicist will argue the legitimacy of a public policy that minimises procreation among certain groups, while often simultaneously promoting greater fertility among other segments of the population. High rates of incarceration (especially where a large number of young adults are concerned) may be tolerated precisely because imprisonment results in a loss of reproductive opportunity. The word eugenics comes from the Greek for "good genes." Therefore, any policy that is thought by advocates to stimulate the prevalence of "good genes" is considered eugenic in its effect. Another term -dysgenic -- is applied to a situation in which the undesirable elements grow at a greater rate than the rest. This kind of thinking can be found in advocacy of such contemporary proposals as the "family cap" for welfare parents, certain efforts to halt teen pregnancy, and the flap about and "illegitimacy." Likewise, racial eugenics defines people from different regions of the world as having unique "evolutionary characteristics" which make one group more suited to certain pursuits than another. This is the ideology behind The Bell Curve and similar publications that have aroused controversy in the past few years. The fact that children inherit genetic characteristics from their parents, Eugenicists hold to the view that "criminal tendencies" or an "underclass" culture should be addressed through social and political discriminatory policies. "Eugenics" involves the aim of racial purity, racial superiority, and the heritability of intelligence, virtue, or vice. In the book Aristotle to Zoos by Peter Medawar, (a member of the English Eugenics Society). Medawar quotes Galton (on page 78), as follows: "I do not see why any insolence of caste should prevent the gifted class, when they had the power, from treating their compatriots with all kindness, so long as they maintained celibacy. But if these continued to procreate children inferior in moral, intellectual and

physical qualities, it is easy to believe the time may come when such persons would be considered as enemies to the State, and to have forfeited all claims to kindness." Margaret Sanger, a member of both the American Eugenics Society and the English Eugenics Society, is a particularly well-known proponent of eugenics. In the book , The Pivot of Civilization she is quoted to say: "Those least fit to carry on the race are increasing most rapidly ... Funds that should be used to raise the standard of our civilization are diverted to maintenance of those who should never have been born." "Race Building in a Democracy" was the theme of the 1940 joint meeting of the Birth Control Federation of America and the Citizens Committee for Planned Parenthood. The Federation proclaimed: 1. "It is entirely fitting that 'Race Building in a Democracy' should have been chosen as the theme of the annual meeting of the Birth Control Federation of America ..." (Birth Control Review, vol. XXIV, January 1940. My purpose in sharing this information is to expose the institutions, associations, and intellectual disciplines which have been founded by, governed by or intellectually controlled by, members of the America Eugenics Society. The point is to encourage a healthy skepticism about the politics of these groups. For example, Planned Parenthood makes much over its program to reduce teen pregnancy, eliminate V.D., and counter AIDS. It has most notably succeeded, however, in reducing the number of births to people of color. To know that Planned Parenthood was founded by eugenicists like Margaret Sanger and Medora Bass of Philadelphia is to receive some enlightenment as to why PP continues, year after year, to fail so spectacularly at its stated goals, while producing what often passes for an "unintended consequence.” GOALS Pre Hitler Goal: Race building by conscious selection -- backed with force. In the book The Passing of the Great Race by Madison Grant, co-founder American Eugenics Society; Grant says: "[Sterilization could] be applied to an ever widening circle of social discards, beginning always with the criminal, the diseased and the insane, and extending gradually to types which may be called weaklings rather than defectives, and perhaps ultimately to worthless race types." Post-Hitler Goal: Race building by a "voluntary unconscious selection" implemented by deceptive programs and manipulation. 1956 "The very word eugenics is in disrepute in some quarters ... We must ask ourselves, what have we done wrong? "People (Negroes) simply are not willing to accept the idea that the genetic base on which their character was formed is inferior and should not be repeated in the next generation. We have asked whole groups of people to accept this idea and we have asked individuals to accept it. They simply won't accept the idea that they are in general second rate. We must rely on other motivation. ... it is surely possible to build a system of voluntary unconscious selection. But the reasons advanced must be generally acceptable reasons. Let's stop telling anyone that they have a generally inferior genetic quality, for they will never agree; and perhaps our proposals will be accepted." After the release of The Bell Curve, the American Psychological Association convened a task force of experts to address the realities of intelligence, culminating in a publication of a consensus report in 1995 entitled Intelligence: Knowns and Unknowns. They determined, as a collective of experts, that Blacks are in fact less intelligent than Whites.

According to the book “Race and IQ” edited by Ashley Montagu, Oxford University Press, New York 1999, “the average IQs of Blacks developed over tens of thousands of years, as they were isolated in subSaharan Africa. There was extremely little mixing with other races outside of this region. At the same time, Caucasians and Eastern Asians were according to most researchers, evolving higher intelligences. Dr. Clarence Gamble and the Pathfinder International Population Research Institute Review, July/August 1996, p. 5. One of the most militant, well-funded, and pervasive organizations promoting population control throughout the world _ especially in underdeveloped nations _ has been Pathfinder International, formerly known as the Pathfinder Fund prior to a 1991 name change. Founded in 1957 by the wealthy eugenicist and population control advocate Clarence Gamble, heir to part of the Gamble fortune from the Proctor and Gamble soap company billions, Pathfinder was one of the very first organizations to fund overseas population control programs. (Clarence Gamble himself was "the first American" individual to fund such activities.) After Gamble's death in 1966, Pathfinder prospered greatly due to substantial funding from a new entity which entered the population control field with very deep pockets indeed: the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). THE "NEGRO PROJECT" In 1939, Margaret Sanger's new Birth Control Federation of America, a merger of her American Birth Control League and her research arm, the Birth Control Clinical Research Bureau, designed a "Negro Project" which sought to bring about a major birth-rate reduction among American Negroes. Such a result, according to the goals of the project, would help solve the problem of Southern Negro poverty. According to the project proposal, widely believed to have been written by Gamble, "The mass of Negroes, particularly in the South, still breed carelessly and disastrously, with the result that the [population] increase among from that portion...least intelligent and fit, and least able to rear children properly." The project was to hire three or four "colored Ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities" to travel through the South and propagandize for birth control. As the project proposal stated, "The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal." In a remarkably frank letter to Gamble, Sanger wrote that "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." Gamble in turn proposed that the ministers enlist the aid of black physicians and attempt to organize a "Negro Birth Control Committee" in each community. In a private memo concerning the "Colored Steering Committee," Gamble wrote that "There is great danger that [the project] will fail because the Negroes think it a plan for extermination. Hence let's appear to let the colored run it...." MOBILIZING OPPOSITION TO BROWN BABIES The ethnic cleansing people are powerful. Ted Turner of CNN is one of the leaders in the MOB in the elimination of Brown people and collaborates with the United Nations and International Planned Parenthood in this project. He recently made a commitment to the United Nations program of population control in the amount of one billion dollars. This is the group that is insisting on massive sterilizations of whole countries. Planned Parenthood presents itself as a group that helps the community

TURNER FUNDS QUINACRINE A vaginally inserted pellet, Quinacrine, sterilizes a woman by burning her fallopian tubes and upper uterus with acid. The attraction of this procedure for Turner and others is that it can be performed without advanced training and the pellets cost only a penny apiece. Short-term medical consequences include abnormal bleeding, fetal exposure, uterine lesions, ectopic pregnancies, backaches, fever, lower abdominal pain and headaches. Independent labora-tory studies show long-term side effects could include cancer. Quinacrine was made by two men in the United States, Dr. Elton Kessel and Stephen Mumford, and exported first to India and Bangladesh. According to The Daily Star newspaper published in Bangladesh (10/21/98), Quinacrine is not allowed in the United States and was declared unsafe by the World Health Organization in 1993. THE NEGRO PROJECT: The Negro Project was supervised by a special committee that included Margaret Sanger, Mary Lasker, and Clarence Gamble. It was guided by a national Negro Advisory Council made up of representatives of 25 major black organizations and universities, and included many prominent black leaders. With the help of local community organizations the Negro Project assembled clinical data to influence the adoption of clinics and contraceptive techniques primarily in the black communities of the South Planned Parenthood’s founder and matriarch, Margaret Sanger in the 1930s ingeniously promoted her ideology that the "unfit" should be prevented from reproducing, "by force if necessary." Since the economic plight of many Blacks placed them and their families in the position of living in an environment that Sanger believed breed "unfit" individuals, her organization zeroed in on the "Negro" population. Establishing the "Negro Project," Sanger and her cohorts set out to push their birth control agenda which as she writes "is nothing more or less than the facilitation of the process of weeding out the unfit, of preventing the birth of defectives or of those who will become defectives" (The Pivot of Civilization written by M. Sanger) In November 1939 a "Negro Project" leader feared that the project would be in "a great danger" of failing because "the Negroes think it a plan for extermination." Therefore, "let’s appear to let the colored run it ...." (Gamble memo "Suggestions for Negro Project" excerpted from pamphlet issued by the African American Committee, A.L.L.) Sanger later wrote him back saying, "We do not want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population ..." She goes on saying that use of the Negro minister would effectively "straighten ... any rebellious members." (Letter from Sanger to Gamble, excerpted from pamphlet issued by the African American Committee, A.L.L.) "With social service backgrounds, and engaging personalities" the "hired ... Colored Ministers" would "propagandized for birth control ... "through a religious appeal." To help maintain control, the colored ministerial staff would be carefully controlled. "A project director lamented ‘I wonder if Southern Darkies can ever be entrusted with ... a clinic. Our experience causes us to doubt their ability to work except under White supervision’." Through her Negro Advisory Council, Sanger’s dream of discouraging "the defective and diseased elements of humanity" from their "reckless and irresponsible swarming and spawning" has been successful. (Excerpts from Grand Illusions: The Legacy of Planned Parenthood) Elitist Bigotry: A Black and White Issue. We must realize that elitist bigotry was not (and is not) reserved for the white Sangers of her day. There were blacks even then who agreed that unfit segments resided in the Negro/Colored population. To some elite Negroes, it was only reasonable to believe elimination of the unfit within the community would cleaned up the race as a whole. Negroes would then eventually evolve into the black Aryan race. Birth control was promoted within the "Negro" population by blacks and whites Page 4 of 5

camouflaged as a means to eliminate unwanted pregnancies when, in fact, it was a systematic means to discourage the continued procreation within our poorer, less educated ranks. For Planned Parenthood, internal cooperation from the "colored elite" was highly desired. In fact, another "Negro Project" leader stated at a birth control annual meeting in January 1942, that she could not "overemphasize the importance of utilizing Negro professionals ..." they should be "fully integrated into the staff of this organization .... ." She went on stating that their "day to day contacts" within their own community would serve to "break down fallacious attitudes and beliefs and elements of distrust; could inspire the confidence of the group; and [these professionals] would not be suspected of the [organization’s] intent to eliminate the race.". (A Negro Project report excerpted from the pamphlet issued by the African American Committee, A.L.L.) George Bush: The Unauthorized Biography Chapter -III- Race Hygiene: Three Bush Family Alliances ``The [government] must put the most modern medical means in the service of this knowledge.... Those who are physically and mentally unhealthy and unworthy must not perpetuate their suffering in the body of their children.... The prevention of the faculty and opportunity to procreate on the part of the physically degenerate and mentally sick, over a period of only 600 years, would ... free humanity from an immeasurable misfortune.'' ``The per capita income gap between the developed and the developing countries is increasing, in large part the result of higher birth rates in the poorer countries.... Famine in India, unwanted babies in the United States, poverty that seemed to form an unbreakable chain for millions of people--how should we tackle these problems?.... It is quite clear that one of the major challenges of the 1970s ... will be to curb the world's fertility.''
