Video: Forced Sterilization: 1929-1974

Written by Gary North on July 21, 2014

The monstrous euegenics movement, based on the idea of Charles Darwin’s cousin Francis Galton, was dominant in intellectually circles in the United States from 1900 to World War II, and it survived legally until the mid–1970s.

The United States passed the first forced sterilization laws before World War I. The Supreme Court case, Buck v. Bell, legalized the practice in 1927. Only one justice dissented, a conservative. It has never been overturned. Hitler openly said that the sterilization laws in the U.S. were models for his similar program.

Rockefeller money was behind much of this research. So was Carnegie money. So was Harriman money. The great foundations, funded by the great fortunes, funded it.

This story of this misuse of state power has been kept out of the history textbooks. Historians have known about it for over 40 years, and there are monographs on it, but the story still remains suppressed by means of the liberals’ “gentlemen’s agreement.” But occasionally some aspect of it gets out.

Recently, an NBC Rock Center segment was devoted to this story. The forced sterilizations went on in North Carolina until 1974. The evidence was kept in a basement in files that were locked up. They are still closed.

You can see the segment here. The video carefully skips over the Rockefeller-Carnegie connection. It mentions more obscure rich supporters.

Planned Parenthood’s founder Margaret Sanger was the most eloquent supporter of eugenics. Her 1922 book, The Pivot of Civilization, is online for free. George Grant’s 1995 book, Killer Angel, has collected her statements in one horrifying volume.

Here is a Mike Wallace interview of Sanger in 1957. He used it to give her a chance to attack the Roman Catholic Church on birth control. Eugenics? Never heard of it. Forced sterilization? What are you, some right-wing nut? The complete transcript is here.

Liberals today are deeply embarrassed by this video. It promotes smoking.

    This isn't new! This started under Wilson era Sanger spoke to the KLAN mostly and it was ONLY black people they were particularly worried about! Just RACISM that NOW the Government especially PROGRESSIVES want to control EVERYTHING but themselves!! Their religion PRAISE GOVERNMENT!!! They still want the black people and poor of all races to be their DRONES to serve GOVERNMENT and the ELITES!! That is BOTH parties and that's why COURTS will over turn the peoples VOTES and the Congress will not DO ANYTHING for the people! We are just a necessary evil tool THEY use for their own ends! The elite NEED TO BE FEARFUL of the masses NOT the other way around!! Just ask yourself WHY the NSA, IRS, Gun control, Health care, etc… it is to control us unwashed! It is time to VOTE or at least put the FEAR OF GOD into these government TOOLS running our LIVES!!!

    democrats just changed how they do it now it is abortions at will same results just as they wanted to control the population

  3. Democrat liberalism is the root of this evil. Control or annihilate you if you are a burden are if you don't fit in.

  4. It would be interesting to have a psychiatrist or psychologist knowledgeable in the area of body language to view this video and comment on Sanger's many moves.

    Nothing wrong with eugenics. States have given it a bad rep. God help us if the they ever get involved again.

  6. The good eugenics would be choose with whom you'll have children with as well refusing to associate with undesirables.

  7. Bill and Melinda Gates Fund and support Eugenics. They are especially active in third world nations.

  8. Mike Wallace made some valid points, such as freedom of speech to permit this discussion, and to which I offer the following. An equally appalling issue as abortion is how long the public has been duped by the wealthy cigarette companies, and the millions who have died from those coffin nails AKA cigarettes. And when America has finally begun to reduce the effects of the Phillip Morris' in our country, these rich and diabolical companies simply moved their smoking audiences overseas, so now we poison their young and innocent without restrictions.

  9. I know this web site offers quality based content and additional information, is there any
    other web page which gives these things in quality?
