In recent time, the Supreme Court ruled (7-2, which was surprising), that Indiana had the right to require “medical facilities” like Planned Parenthood to provide dignified burials or cremation for aborted children. And while that is a nice little win for pro-lifers, the Court decided against ruling on a supposedly controversial part of the law that prohibited abortions on the basis of race, gender or disabilities.
Justice Clarence Thomas, after the ruling, said in a statement that while “further percolation may assist our review of this issue of first impression,” and that the Court was smart to not rule on this part of the Indiana law, the Court cannot avoid this issue forever.
“Given the potential for abortion to become a tool for eugenic manipulation, the court will soon need to confront the constitutionality of laws like Indiana’s. So long as the Supreme Court forces a policy of unfettered elective abortion on the entire country, it ought to at least allow for states to protect babies from unjust discrimination.”
He added: “Although the court declines to wade into these issues today, we cannot avoid them forever. Having created the constitutional right to an abortion, this court is dutybound to address its scope.”
The Indiana law in question largely focuses on the disabilities aspect, targeting abortions performed for the reasons of a baby having Down syndrome.
The law reads: “Indiana does not allow a fetus to be aborted solely because of the fetus’ race, color, national origin, ancestry, sex, or diagnosis or potential diagnosis of the fetus having Down syndrome or any other disability.”
According to The Daily Wire, “Thomas referenced genetic screening in his concurrence, noting that a baby’s gender can be determined by an elective blood test given between 7 and 10 weeks, and that disabilities like Down syndrome can be detected before the end of the first trimester.” Thomas said that pairing these screenings with largely unrestricted abortion access leads us to “modern-day eugenics.”
Thomas ended by writing: “Enshrining a constitutional right to an abortion based solely on the race, sex, or disability of an unborn child, as Planned Parenthood advocates, would constitutionalize the views of the 20th-century eugenics movement. In other contexts, the Court has been zealous in vindicating the rights of people even potentially subjected to race, sex, and disability discrimination.”
All-in-all, I largely agree with what Justice Clarence Thomas is saying here except for two points. One, I do not think it was smart of the Court to pass up on not ruling on this part of the Indiana law. More time given to look things over when they ought to be clear as day allows for other states that do not have a similar law to perform the sort of ethnic cleansing Margaret Sanger often dreamed of.
If one discriminates against someone based on any of these factors at any level, whether that be in business, in school, in sports, or in any other area, that person is punished to some capacity. Not allowing a black person to eat at your restaurant for the reason of his or her race is not allowed under the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
Nowhere can someone openly discriminate against someone for the reason of race, sex, etc. except in the womb. Let us not ignore the fact that Planned Parenthood disproportionally targets black and Hispanic neighborhoods, with almost 80% of their facilities located within walking distance of minorities. Let’s not ignore the fact that 52% of African American pregnancies end in abortion or that roughly 1,800 black babies are aborted every day.
Let’s not ignore the fact that babies who are diagnosed with Down syndrome are 60 to 80% likely to be aborted, according to the Guttmacher Institute. And that’s just in the U.S. In Europe, Down syndrome is basically non-existent, not because they found a cure, but because they systematically abort babies diagnosed with Down syndrome.
And in places like China and India, unborn girls face a high probability of being aborted. The UNFPA (United Nations Population Fund. Yes, the letters don’t match, but that’s because they used to be called the United Nations Fund for Population Activities) says that “126 million women and girls were missing in 2010 due to gender-biased sex selection, which can include, for example, excess female mortality and prenatal sex selection.”
That last reason they give, “prenatal sex selection” is simply their Leftist way of acknowledging abortion is the cause without actually blaming abortion. But you can plainly see that abortion is at least partly responsible for over 100 million women and girls “missing” (not sure what exactly that is supposed to mean here, but I may have a few ideas).
Countries like India show quite an imbalance in sex ratios, where there are 110 boys born for every 100 girls from 2011-2013. But that is nothing compared to China, which had 115.9 boys for every 100 girls born in 2014.
So throughout the world, abortion is already very much a tool of eugenics. Matter of fact, it always has been! And that’s the second point that I don’t entirely agree with Thomas. Abortion does not lead to eugenics. Abortion is already a tool of eugenics and always has been.
Let’s not forget that Margaret Sanger saw black people as a “weed” to be uprooted and frequently employed Nazi sympathizers like Clarence Gamble and Lothrop Stoddard. And let’s not forget that there have been a plethora of eugenics-based organizations, such as the Eugenics Record Office, the National Conference on Race Betterment, and the American Breeders Association.
These racist organizations were so vile that one particular man remarked: “I have studied with great interest the laws of several American states concerning prevention of reproduction by people whose progeny would in all probability be of no value or be injurious to the racial stock.” And that “The demand that defective people be prevented from propagating equally defective offspring is a demand of clearest reason. If systematically executed, it represents the most humane act of mankind.”
And just who was this man who viewed American eugenics and abortion as “the most humane act of mankind”?
None other than the leader of the Third Reich, Adolf Hitler. Yes, he absolutely adored American eugenics programs and sought to adopt them into his own German empire.
Margaret Sanger sought to utilize abortion as a eugenics tool long before there was even a Planned Parenthood. She sought to keep minorities, whom she considered “weeds” and “imbecilic” and overall “defective”, from reproducing as much as possible.
And given the statistics we see today, that sort of racial discrimination is not only alive and well, but outright THRIVING. We easily see the dreams of Margaret Sanger, Clarence Gamble, Lothrop Stoddard, and Adolf Hitler being carried out by Planned Parenthood and other abortionists throughout the world.
Already, 61 million babies have been aborted in the U.S. since 1973 and 1.5 billion in the world since 1980. Almost 20 million in the U.S. were black.
Justice Clarence Thomas is certainly right in drawing the links between abortion and eugenics, particularly in race-based, sex-based, etc. abortions. The problem is that abortion doesn’t lead to eugenics. Abortion IS eugenics. Now, not all eugenics are abortions, but all abortions are eugenics. The reasoning behind the abortions may not sound like eugenics, but at the end of the day, they are.
It’s not “women’s healthcare” or “liberation” for a black woman to kill off her own offspring (the literal definition of a fetus). It’s eugenics, through and through.
And Thomas is certainly right in saying that the Supreme Court can’t keep kicking this particular can down the road. Eventually, it will have to face the reality that this kind of abortion is outright discrimination and should be treated like any other kind of discrimination is today.
