What do they mean by choice?

They mean that they view abortion as birth control. They see it as the means to save the government money. They mean that they want to eliminate the poor, the minorities, and others they deem as a financial drain and as unfit for society.

As reported on on October 26, 2010 (which can be read by clicking here), regarding the federal healthcare reform, Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards, appearing on the Bill Pless radio show, said "I think it's important, Bill, to understand that unlike some other issues of cost, birth control is one of those issues that actually saves the government money. So an investment in covering birth control actually in the long run is a huge cost savings because women don't have children that they weren't planning on having and all the sort of attendant cost for unplanned pregnancy.

"So we actually feel that covering birth control is not only the right thing to do for women, it's good for women, it's good for their health care, but it's frankly good public policy."

Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in her attempt to justify the contraceptive funding in the stimulus bill said that preventing births "will reduce costs to the states and to the federal government."

So, in essence, no babies from the poor in our country, means huge savings to the state and federal governments, and also means that those pro-choice elitists won't have to see or deal with the poor.

For instance, Ron Weddington, the co-counsel who successfully argued the Roe vs.Wade decision before the United States Supreme Court, wrote a letter to the then-president-elect Bill Clinton urging him to "eliminate the barely educated, unhealthy and poor segment of our country" by liberalizing abortion laws."

World Net Daily, on May 13, 2006 reported on Weddington's letter to Clinton after the letter was included in an exhibit by the legal watchdog group, Judicial Watch. According to the report Weddington also included in the letter the following statements to the president-elect (all the statements below appear on World Net Daily's story which can be read by clicking here) :

"No, I'm not advocating some sort of mass extinction of these unfortunate people. Crime, drugs and disease are already doing that. The problem is that their numbers are not only replaced but increased by the birth of millions of babies to people who can't afford to have babies.

"There, I've said it. It's what we all know is true, but we only whisper it, because as liberals who believe in individual rights, we view any program which might treat the disadvantaged differently as discriminatory, mean-spirited and ... well ... so Republican."

"Having convinced the poor that they can't get out of poverty when they have all those extra mouths to feed, you will have to provide the means to prevent the extra mouths, because abstinence doesn't work. The religious right has had 12 years to preach its message. It's time to officially recognize that people are going to have sex and what we need to do as a nation is prevent as much disease and as many poor babies as possible."

"Think of all the poverty, crime and misery ... and then add 30 million unwanted babies (there had been 30 million abortion in the United Sates up to that point in time) to the scenario. We lost a lot of ground during the Reagan-Bush religious orgy. We don't have a lot of time left."

"The biblical exhortation to 'be fruitful and multiply' was directed toward a small tribe, surrounded by enemies. "We are long past that. Our survival depends upon our developing a population where everyone contributes. We don't need more cannon fodder. We don't need more parishioners. We don't need more cheap labor. We don't need more poor babies."

In a study from the Guttmacher Institute, which is an affiliate of Planned Parenthood, it was reported that among American women who obtained abortions, the proportion who lived under the federal poverty level went from 27% in 2000 to 42% in 2008. The report did not look at Planned Parenthood's campaign of encouraging abortions among poor women and women of racial minority groups. It did note however that only 36% of the women receiving abortions were white.

I will not delve into how this all lives down to the exacting standards of Planned Parenthood's founder Margaret Sanger, who, in her 1939 Negro Project said "We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population and the minister is the man who can straighten out the idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members." 1

Sanger also wrote the following:

"It is a vicious cycle; ignorance breeds poverty and poverty breeds ignorance. There is only one cure for both, and that is to stop breeding these things. Stop bringing to birth children whose inheritance cannot be one of health or intelligence. Stop bringing into the world children whose parents cannot provide for them. Herein lies the key of civilization. For upon the foundation of an enlightened and voluntary motherhood shall a future civilization emerge." 2

"It is said that a fish as large as a man has a brain no larger than the kernel of an almond. In all fish and reptiles where there is no great brain development, there is also no conscious sexual control. The lower down in the scale of human development we go the less sexual control we find. It is said that the aboriginal Australian, the lowest known species of the human family, just a step higher than the chimpanzee in brain development, has so little sexual control that police authority alone prevents him from obtaining sexual satisfaction on the streets." 3

So, when they say “pro-choice” they mean “pro-death” and “pro-hate”.
