An Excellent Spirit with great sadness notes this Jewish World Review story by Linda Chavez. In it, Ms. Chavez reports that the United States has joined most of Europe, a good part of Asia and Australia in having a live birth rate that will not sustain its growth or economy. “The old adage “be careful what you wish for” is an apt reminder in light of this week’s news that the U.S. birthrate has dropped to its lowest level on record. For years, population hysterics have tried to convince Americans to aim not just for zero population growth in the U.S. but its complete reversal. Many of the groups pushing this view have also been in the forefront of the anti-immigration movement — NumbersUSA, Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) and Negative Population Growth (NPG). They don’t like immigrants — even legal ones — because immigrants, especially Hispanic immigrants, traditionally have had higher birth rates than the native born. But the new report from the Pew Research Center suggests that even among Hispanic immigrants, birth rates are falling quickly. So why is this a problem? Contrary to the agenda pushed by the aforementioned neo-Malthusian groups, a declining population can spell real economic trouble in the future. As populations in advanced countries age, more people become dependents rather than contributors to the economy. Especially in nations that provide a social safety net, such as Social Security and Medicare in the U.S., the ability to fund these programs depends on population growth among younger, working-age people.”
While Ms. Chavez is correct in her conclusions, she does not go far enough. The abortion movement in America has spawned an international death by government culture that now threatens to return to America as accepted policy. “As long as it does not touch my family, I can live (or die) with it” is the watchword in this cowardly, ancient culture. That means that Barack Obama, the most pro-abortion President in our history and a spiritual question mark, will now formulate and enact policies that determine life and death in America.
The history of both the abortion and euthanasia movements in America are little known. The death of children was strictly forbidden by God. Molech, the god of Molech, (or Molek) was the chief god of the Phoenicians, and Canaanites, mentioned as the god of the Ammonites, Western Semitic, probably known to the Israelites before King Solomon. Human sacrifices were offered to him, mainly firstborn children (see First Fruits), the victims were slowly burned to death in the outstretched arms of this idol, which were metal, hollow and could be heated on the inside. Some say they fell into the fire below. Manasech offered his son to Molech. Solomon erected an altar to this god on one of the summits of Mount Olivet. (1 Kings 11:7) This idol worshipping continued there and in Tophet until Josiah abolished it and defiled the altars. (2 Kings 23:30) Molech was also worshipped in Carthage, where at one times about 200 little boys were sacrificed in hopes of saving that city from siege. Molech was synonymous with the Hebrew god Moloch of the Vetus Testamentum to whom the Israelite children were sacrificed. The Lord warned the Israelites to have nothing to do with Molech: “You shall not give any of your children to devote them by fire to Molech, and so profane The Name of your God: I am The Lord” (Leviticus 18:21 RSV) Notwithstanding that prohibition America has killed more than 41 million children by sacrificing them on the altar of abortion since 1973.
The patroness of abortion and eugenics was Margaret Sanger. This woman is today celebrated as the Jackie Robinson of women’s rights, when she should be reviled for the practices she preached and the life she led. Sanger was an admitted communist, sexual radical, and anti-black activist who couched her policies carefully in order to insure that they would succeed. Go here for more information. Sanger believed that “negroes” were inferior beings and should be “exterminated”. She and her organizations set out to do just that. It is incredible that today, Planned Parenthood, the organization that she is credited with founding, continues her diabolical work under the guise of free birth control for blacks. Sanger’s credo, often expressed graphically by her is muted by Planned Parenthood and the progressive left feminists today. Their coalition has need of African American votes as the last Election proved. Nevertheless, Sanger’s words ring out like a bomb destroying all peace and life: “Margaret Sanger herself. Ever the radical feminist, she insisted on speaking for herself, and, to this day, her words stand on their own. “Restriction should be an order as well as an ideal of the family and the race,” she wrote. Greatly influenced by her friend and mentor the neo-Malthusian thinker Havelock Ellis (co-founder of Great Britain’s Eugenic Education Society), Sanger strongly believed in a “qualitative” not “quantitative” factor for the human race. There was an ideal for humanity, and those who failed to meet Sanger’s standards in terms of physical condition and mental capacity, and those prone to alcoholism or epilepsy, were less “fit” human beings and less worthy of the freedoms that she apparently held so dear. They were the “weeds” of the human garden, and they must be plucked. In her 1922 work, Pivot of Civilization, Sanger remarked that the state should respond with either “force or persuasion” when “the incurably defective are permitted to procreate.” Most tellingly, perhaps, in her 1920 book, Woman and the New Race, Sanger referred to birth control as “nothing more or less than the facilitation of the process of weeding out the unfit, of preventing the birth of defectives, or those who would become defective.” Her great crusade for birth control was less about helping women and more about preventing the birth of those she deemed to be “unfit.” For a complete review of Sanger, eugenics and Malthusian doctrine, go to Black Genocide, an African American group that is dedicated to revealing the truth to all Americans about the systematic elimination of the black race in America.
What should be clear to Americans is that what is coming is far worse than anything that has been. America has permitted the killing of live fetuses for almost 40 years. America has been fighting a rear guard action against euthanasia for decades with progressives, academia, scientists and physicians leading the way down the path to hell. All of that is what was. What is going to happen? Under an unshackled Obama Administration with Obamacare, death panels, Medicare cuts and pervasive government interference with all life and death choices, nothing will ever be the same. Forces long dormant, doctrines not acceptable in gentile society are now going to become prevalent and America will have gone past the point of no return.
An Excellent Spirit will continue to document this sad, tragic tale of how a nation and a people dedicated to God Almighty can in little more than a half century choose death, destruction and turn its back on the God of Heaven and Earth. Stay tuned.
