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.more Ruth Bader Ginsburg quotes
The 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.more Ruth Bader Ginsburg quotes
Occupation, 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.more Suheir Hammad quotes
The 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.more Adolf Hitler quotes
[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.more John Holdren quotes
Apply 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.more Margaret Sanger quotes
As 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.more Margaret Sanger quotes
I 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.more Margaret Sanger quotes
I 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.more Margaret Sanger quotes
No 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.more Margaret Sanger quotes
...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.more Margaret Sanger quotes
[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.more Margaret Sanger quotes
[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.more Margaret Sanger quotes
But 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.more Ron Weddington quotes
Condoms 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.more Ron Weddington quotes
The 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.more Ron Weddington quotes
