On the heels of the provocative "Black Children are an Endangered Species" billboard campaign running in Atlanta comes another, this one in Poland.
The Polish arm of the Center for Bio-Ethical Reform may have a chance to display this sign on a huge billboard (74 ft x 32 ft) in the center of a large city in Poland. Click to enlarge...
Translation: Abortion for Polish women introduced by Hitler on March 9, 1943
Adding to the interest in the timing of this display is that March 8 is a special day for feminists in Poland. Each year on this day they organize marches and demand abortion without limits.
The sign is true, by the way. 1st, according to Wapedia...
Until 1932, abortion was banned in Poland without exceptions. In that year a new Penal Code legalized abortion strictly when there were medical reasons and, for the 1st time in Europe, when the pregnancy resulted from a criminal act. Except during the German occupation during the 2nd World War, this law was in effect from 1932 to 1956.
Then, according to Wiki Answers:
Did Hitler support abortion?
Yes. In fact, he was the 1st major Western leader to allow abortion even for reasons of the stress of the mother - thus making it legal in nearly every circumstance. His idea was to limit the growth of populations (lessen them, actually) in the Eastern territories where he wanted the German empire to expand - while increasing pregnancies and births to "Aryan" couples.
"In view of the large families of the native populations," Hitler asserted, "it could only suit us if girls and women there had as many abortions as possible." Hitler also personally announced that he "would personally shoot" any "such idiot" who "tried to put into practice such an order" (forbidding abortion) in the occupied Eastern territories.
Israeli doctor Dr. Tessa Chelouche has done a major academic study on this subject ("Doctors, Pregnancy, Childbirth and Abortion during the Third Reich") and writes, "Abortion was used as a weapon of mass destruction in Eastern Europe," where "it has been estimated that tens of thousands of Polish and Russian women were compelled to abort not because of health reasons, but because of Nazi dogma."
Here is a direct quote from Hitler [1942 policy statement]:
"In view of the large families of the Slav native population, it could only suit us if girls and women there had as many abortions as possible. We are not interested in seeing the non-German population multiply....
We must use every means to instill in the population the idea that it is harmful to have several children, the expenses that they cause and the dangerous effect on woman's health....
It will be necessary to open special institutions for abortions and doctors must be able to help out there in case there is any question of this being a breach of their professional ethics."

Sick minds and troubled souls think.... and act alike.
"We must use every means to instill in the population the idea that it is harmful to have several children, the expenses that they cause and the dangerous effect on woman's health"...
It is called 'propaganda' and it is used to manipulate people to elicit the desired response.
"It will be necessary to open special institutions for abortions and doctors must be able to help out there
in case there is any question of this being a breach of their professional ethics."
Today they have to enact laws to keep doctors with ethics from gettting in the way in the instititutions.

This reminds me of a disussion we were having in our RTL meeting last night that not only has the abortion industry targeted the black population but has sold the black population so much so that they are the ones to fight tooth and nail to keep abortion on demand with no restrictions alive and well in TN.

I shudder to think of those back alley, front alley abortions!! Gah. Totally safe and legal though. Totally.Posted by: carla at February 12, 2010 10:36 AM
Susie, that's the way 95 percent of black politicians are, including those in Philadelphia, and the sad thing is these lawmakers are always in church. It's sad.Posted by: Phillymiss at February 12, 2010 10:44 AM
""We must use every means to instill in the population the idea that it is harmful to have several children, the expenses that they cause and the dangerous effect on woman's health"...
Sounds like a page from PP's playbook...
Gee...I wonder what the Femi-nazi's would say if they learned about this?
That they are unwitting pawns propagating Hitler's agenda...

Go over to RH (sur)Reality Check and post it in their comments section without a credit, and as them if they can name the person who said it, like a fun trivia game.Posted by: xalisae at February 12, 2010 12:30 PM

Is everyone able to see the billboard and view the enlargement? I've had 3 ppl complain they can't see the billboard, and I'm just not getting what the problem is... ??Posted by: Jill Stanek at February 12, 2010 1:50 PM
Nope, I can't view the image either. Maybe it's cached in your browser, Jill.Posted by: Fed Up at February 12, 2010 1:57 PM
Try now. I think it was a browser issue. Firefox is fine but not IE. I just renamed the file. Thanks, Fed Up.Posted by: Jill Stanek at February 12, 2010 2:01 PM
It shouldn't be surprising that PP and Hitler sound exactly alike, as Sanger went to Germany and was extremely enamored of the man and his philosophy. It only makes sense that his ideas would continue to be echoed by the institution she founded to further his beliefs.Posted by: Elisabeth at February 12, 2010 2:26 PM
True Elisabeth...but Hitler (only?) killed 6 million Jews ...while Sanger's PP is continuing her work and the death toll is now 50 million babies and counting...Posted by: RSD at February 12, 2010 2:32 PM
Is it just me? I still can't view the image. Source code shows style="" for that graphic. Is it a CSS issue?Posted by: Fed Up at February 12, 2010 3:09 PM

I beg to differ.
Todays feministas and yesterdays feminazis are both 'witting' and 'willing' pawns.

How many young black women have seen this picture of her lecturing to the KKK and the transcript of the speech? It's black and white and the KKK "ladies" are all wearing their best sheets.
I don't know if you allow people to post links, but you can find it by googling:: Margaret Sanger KKK :: and clicking on images. I'm trying to think of a way to make a sign out of it that would catch black women's attention without being offensive. Any ideas?
Right now, I have a sticker on my car that says " Babies are Beautiful" and shows a white baby on one end; a black baby on the other.Posted by: sabella at February 13, 2010 3:03 AM
Fed Up - Hit refresh and try again? Can everyone see the poster?Posted by: Jill Stanek at February 13, 2010 6:35 AM
I can see the poster.Posted by: John at February 13, 2010 9:24 AM
I still can't see it, but if everyone else can, I'd imagine the problem is on my end.Posted by: Keli Hu at February 13, 2010 2:31 PM
I can't see it either, Keli.Posted by: Fed Up at February 13, 2010 6:01 PM
