WASHINGTON, D.C., December 6, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) – The most popular talk show host on radio has told his audience abortion “has made us insensitive to killing.”

On Monday, a caller from Washington, D.C., named “Joe,” told Rush Limbaugh that he believes young gang members become callous to killing in part from their involvement in abortion.

“If you do not have respect for his own seed’s life, how can he have respect for others?” Joe asked. “We have been teaching this in the black community.”

The attitude that the unborn are simply disposable, he said, has led members of that community to become indifferent to killing carjacking victims.

“Do you realize that it’s attitudes like this that are guaranteeing the Republicans losing elections?” Limbaugh replied in jest. The statement was an allusion to the brewing civil war between the GOP’s pro-life base and its Beltway leadership, who are pressuring for the party to downplay the abortion issue.

“Margaret Sanger was targeting the black community,” Limbaugh said. “The elimination of black families – that’s what Margaret Sanger was about.”

Sanger, a believer in eugenics, once spoke to a Ku Klux Klan rally and famously paid black spokespeople to promote contraception and sterilization in the black community.

Although Sanger’s desire to cull the black population is well known, Limbaugh said the “average liberal” would dismiss the facts as “mindless, racist, hateful speech.”

“They don’t want to know the truth,” he said.

Rush Limbaugh’s daily radio program is heard on nearly 400 radio stations by an audience of up to 30 million people. 

Michael Harrison of Talkers magazine said the radio host’s kerfuffle over Sandra Fluke earlier this year likely had little impact on his listenership, and his audience is as large as it has been in years.
