Mr. Turner – a long-time advocate of population control – said the environmental stress on the Earth requires radical solutions, suggesting countries should follow China’s lead in instituting a one-child policy to reduce global population over time. He added that fertility rights could be sold so that poor people could profit from their decision not to reproduce.
The abortion movement in America was spun off from eugenics and population control policies advocated by “choice” heroes like Margaret Sanger. And if you think Sanger was bad, try the UK version of her, Marie Stopes.
Marie Stopes sent one of her books to Hitler with a personal note and wrote poems like these, “Catholics, Prussians, The Jews and the Russians, Are all a curse, Or something worse.”
She disinherited her son because he married a woman who wore glasses, or as she put it, “I have the horror of our line being so contaminated and little children with the misery of glasses… Mary and Harry (her son) are quite callous about both the wrong to their children, the wrong to my family and the eugenic crime.”
Marie Stopes International has 629 centers around the world from New Guinea to Pakistan, Mexico, Ghana and Washington D.C.
The abortion organizations now sell their movement as “choice”, but it isn’t about choice. It’s about power.
When her mind is clear, Gong Qifeng can recall how she begged for mercy. Several people pinned her head, arms, knees and ankles to a hospital bed before driving a syringe of labor-inducing drugs into her stomach.
She was seven months pregnant with what would have been her second boy. The drugs caused her to have a stillborn baby after 35 hours of excruciating pain. She was forced to have the abortion by officials in China’s southern province of Hunan in the name of complying with national limits on family size.
“It was the pain of my lifetime, worse than the pain of delivering a child. You cannot describe it,” Gong, 25, said in a recent interview in Beijing. “And it has become a mental pain. I feel like a walking corpse.”
An outcry over forced late-term abortions peaked in June 2012 when family of Feng Jianmei in the northwestern province of Shaanxi revealed her forcibly aborted 7-month fetus on the Internet, drawing widespread fury, attracting international media and prompting the top family planning official to reiterate the state stance against such misconduct.
This is Ted Turner’s dream for America. And he’s not alone.
