Ruth Bader GinsburgThe impact of all these restrictions is on poor women, because women who have means, if their state doesn’t provide access, another state does. ...
It makes no sense as a national policy to promote birth only among poor people.
Ruth Bader GinsburgFrankly 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.
Suheir HammadOccupation, curfew, settlements, closed military zone, administrative detention, siege, preventive strike, terrorist infrastructure, transfer. Their WAR destroys language. Speaks genocide with the words of a quiet technician.
Occupation means that you cannot trust the OPEN SKY, or any open street near to the gates of snipers tower. It means that you cannot trust the future or have faith that the past will always be there.
Occupation means you live out your live under military rule, and the constant threat of death, a quick death from a snipers bullet or a rocket attack from an M16.
A crushing, suffocating death, a slow bleeding death in an ambulance stopped for hours at a checkpoint. A dark death, at a torture table in an Israeli prison: just a random arbitrary death.
A cold calculated death: from a curable disease. A thousand small deaths while you watch your family dying around you.
Occupation means that every day you die, and the world watches in silence. As if your death was nothing, as if you were a stone falling in the earth, water falling over water.
And if you face all of this death and indifference and keep your humanity, and your love and your dignity and YOU refuse to surrender to their terror, then you know something of the courage that is Palestine.
Adolf HitlerThe demand that defective people be prevented from propagating equally defective offspring is a demand of the clearest reason and if systematically executed represents the most humane act of mankind.
John Holdren[U]nder the United States Constitution, effective population-control programs, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing Constitution if the population crisis became sufficiently severe to endanger the society.
Margaret Sanger[W]hile there are cases where even the law recognizes an abortion as justifiable if recommended by a physician, I assert that the hundreds of thousands of abortions performed in America each year are a disgrace to civilization.
Margaret SangerA free race cannot be born of slave mothers.
Margaret Sanger[N]o one can doubt that there are times when an abortion is justifiable but they will become unnecessary when care is taken to prevent conception. This is the only cure for abortions.
Margaret SangerThe most merciful thing that a large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.
Margaret SangerI accepted an invitation to talk to the women's branch of the Ku Klux Klan...I was escorted to the platform, was introduced, and began to speak...In the end, through simple illustrations, I believed I had accomplished my purpose. A dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered.
Margaret SangerI think the greatest sin in the world is bringing children into the world, that have disease from their parents, they have no chance in the world to be a human being practically...Delinquents, prisoners, all sorts of things just marked when they're born. That to me is the greatest sin -- that people can -- can commit.
Margaret SangerAs an advocate for birth control, I wish to take advantage of the present opportunity to point out that the unbalance between the birth rate of the 'unfit' and the 'fit', admittedly the greatest present menace to civilization, can never be rectified by the inauguration of a cradle competition between these two classes.
Margaret SangerNo woman shall have the legal right to bear a child, and no man shall have the right to become a father, without a permit for parenthood.
Margaret SangerApply a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is tainted, or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to offspring.
Margaret Sanger...these two words [birth control] sum up our whole philosophy...It means the release and cultivation of better elements in our society, and the gradual suppression, elimination, and eventual extinction, of defective stocks -- those human weeds which threaten the blooming of the finest flowers of American civilization.
Margaret SangerBirth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race.
Margaret SangerWe 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 don't want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population…
Margaret SangerEugenic sterilization is an urgent need ... We must prevent multiplication of this bad stock.
Margaret SangerEugenics is … the most adequate and thorough avenue to the solution of racial, political and social problems.
Margaret SangerBirth control itself, often denounced as a violation of natural law, 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.
Margaret SangerThe unbalance between the birth rate of the 'unfit' and the 'fit,' [is] the greatest present menace to civilization… the most urgent problem today is how to limit and discourage the over-fertility of the mentally and physically defective.
Margaret SangerThe campaign for birth control is not merely of eugenic value, but is practically identical with the final aims of eugenics.
Margaret SangerOur failure to segregate morons who are increasing and multiplying… a dead weight of human waste… an ever-increasing, unceasingly spawning class of human beings who never should have been born at all.
Margaret SangerThe undeniably feeble-minded should, indeed, not only be discouraged but prevented from propagating their kind.
Margaret SangerThe procreation of [the diseased, the feeble-minded and paupers] should be stopped.
Margaret SangerThe marriage bed is the most degenerative influence in the social order...
Margaret Sanger[Our objective is] unlimited sexual gratification without the burden of unwanted children...
Margaret Sanger[Mandatory] sterilization for [the insane and feeble-minded] is the answer.
Margaret SangerGive dysgenic groups [people with 'bad genes'] in our population their choice of segregation or [compulsory] sterilization.
Faye WattletonAs we celebrate the 100th birthday of Margaret Sanger, our outrageous and our courageous leader, we will probably find a number of areas in which we may find more about Margaret Sanger than we thought we wanted to know...
Ron WeddingtonThe biblical exhortation to 'Be fruitful and multiply,'
was directed toward a small tribe, surrounded by enemies.
We are long past that. Our survival depends upon our
developing a population where everyone, contributes. We
don't need more cannon fodder. We don't need more
parishioners, We don't need more cheap labor. We don't need
more poor babies.
Ron WeddingtonCondoms alone won't do it. Depo-Provera, Norplant and
the new birth control injection being developed in India are
not a complete answer ...
No, government is also going to have to provide
vasectomies, tubal ligations and abortions...RU 486 and
conventional abortions. Even if we make birth control as
ubiquitous as sneakers and junk food, there will still be
unplanned pregnancies.
Ron WeddingtonBut you can start immediately to eliminate the barely
educated, unhealthy and poor segment of our country. No,
I'm, not advocating some, sort of mass extinction of these
unfortunate people. Crime, drugs and disease are already
doing that. The problem is that their numbers are not only
replaced but increased by the birth of millions of babies to
people who can't afford to have babies.
There, I've said it. It's what we all know is true,
but we only whisper it, because as liberals who believe in
individual rights, we view any program which might treat the
disadvantaged differently as discriminatory, mean-spirited
and...well...so Republican.
