June 25, 2009 ( - Planned Parenthood and similar groups have been using abortion and artificial contraception to control and reduce the African-American population of the US in a slow but deliberate and planned “genocide” that has been ongoing for 150 years, a new documentary claims.

The recently released documentary, “Maafa 21,” produced by Life Dynamics Incorporated, the Texas-based pro-life investigative group, traces the history of the contraception and abortion industry from its origins in the racist eugenics movement of the early 20th century that un-apologetically targeted the black population and other groups it regarded as inferior.

Planned Parenthood was targeted by Civil Rights movement activists in the 1960s and '70s for its involvement in a “black genocide” that had its origins in the early days of the eugenics movement in the 19th century. The film points out that since 1973, legalised abortion has been specifically aimed at the African-American population and has killed more than “cancer, diabetes, heart disease and gang violence combined.”

“Every week, more blacks die in American abortion clinics than were killed in the entire Vietnam War. And the largest chain of abortion clinics in the United States is operated by Planned Parenthood.”  

It quotes Frederick Osborn, a founding member of the American Eugenics Society, who said in 1973, “Birth control and abortion are turning out to be the great eugenic advances of our time.”

Pastor Stephen Broden, of the Fair Park Bible Fellowship, says in the film that the first “anti-abortion groups” were started by civil rights activists who spoke out against the use of birth control and abortion to eliminate the black race “long before the contemporary pro-life groups of today existed.” Support for the abortion movement among African-Americans, he said, came about in response to ”powerful influentical African-Americans” who were “willing to sell out the community” and who looked the other way to “advance their own personal political agendas.”

The release of the film comes at the same time as it has been revealed that racist eugenics ideas had been shared by the late President Richard Nixon, who endorsed abortion for “mixed race” babies. Dr. Alveda King, Pastoral Associate of Priests for Life and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., said that Nixon's comment is “one more reminder that abortion and racism are inextricably linked.”

“Since its inception, the abortion movement has been eliminating people that it considers undesirable – people of colour or those with low income.”
