Birth Control And Eugenics: Name A More Iconic Duo

Since its inception in the mid-1950s, birth control has allegedly been part of a eugenic population control agenda executed by societal elites to exploit and sterilize “undesirables.”

The promises birth control has made to women since May 9, 1960, when the FDA approved the very first hormonal contraceptive, are many and bold: Sexual liberation, the ability to choose how many children you have and when to have them, a fix to imbalanced hormones and PMS, and the ability to have sex without consequences

We know today that these promises are exactly as they seem – too good to be true. Take any form of hormonal birth control and you open yourself up to a whole litany of serious medical problems: blood clots, embolism, osteoporosis, sarcopenia, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, hair loss, acne, weight gain, altered sense of smell (pheromones are inhaled and detected on a subconscious level and are an important part of how our body determines whether or not the man in front of us will be a good match to our fertility/biology), decreased sex drive, loss of ability to orgasm, increased risk of mood disorders, uterine perforation, infection, migraine, blindness, liver tumors, gallstones, jaundice, heart attack, stroke, sterilization, cervical cancer, breast cancer, and death. 

But what if I told you that during its earliest trials in the mid-1950s doctors and scientists already knew much of this? That the plan for readily available, inexpensive, easy-to-use birth control was not to make women's lives easier and give them equal footing with the men? It was to slash global population growth and eliminate certain people groups. As Margaret Sanger, the inceptor of birth control, puts it, “these two words [birth control] sum up our whole philosophy...It means the release and cultivation of the better elements in our society, and the gradual suppression, elimination and eventual extinction, of defective stocks – those human weeds which threaten the blooming of the finest flowers of American civilization."

Now, not all doctors knew about this, obviously, but the few who were responsible for the testing and development of the pill knew. They knew the birth control pill, Enovid, had contributed to the deaths of at least three women and was responsible for a myriad of different health complications. The first methods of birth control were meant for the poor, immigrant class. It was tested on and used to exploit the poor, uneducated women living in 1950s Puerto Rico.

Eugenics, the American Elite, Unethical Clinical Trials, Death, and the Pill

Believe it or not, in addition to her attempted eugenocide of black people through her “Negro Project,” Margaret Sanger “drove the research and development” of the world's very first birth control pill.

Fueled by her hunger to “limit and discourage the over-fertility of the mentally and physically defective” (these terms included anyone who was uneducated, poor, and non-white) and her beliefs that “there should be no more babies” and that “the most merciful thing… the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it,” Sanger opened the U.S.’s first Birth Control Clinic (The Brownsville Clinic) in 1916 in the middle of a working-class immigrant housing area. Here, she provided diaphragms to anyone who wanted one, education regarding the latest and most effective birth control method, and abortions. At the time, such a practice was illegal, but in true megalomaniac fashion, this was not a deterrent for Sanger, even after a doctor in her practice killed a mother during an abortion and got thrown in jail. In accordance with her beliefs, she made sure to provide advertisements for her practice in “English, Hebrew, Russian, and Italian” so that no mother of “inferior genetic stock” was left untouched. 

In her spare time, Sanger was a popular and coveted speaker at KKK meetings. Sanger wrote in her autobiography about how after one of her first speeches at a women’s branch of the Ku Klux Klan, “a dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered.”

These contributions to a “cleaner race” weren’t enough for Sanger, however, she needed more. She needed a way to insert herself and her ideals into every American bedroom without anyone ever having to step foot inside her clinic. If the judicial courts wouldn’t take up her repulsive “code for babies,” where every married American couple would have to apply for a permit before getting pregnant in order to legally birth a single child, she’d have to find a way to make women adopt the practice itself, without awareness of their compliance to Sanger’s ideals. She just needed to find the proper tool and packaging.

Margaret Sanger wanted to insert her ideals into every American bedroom, so she conceived the birth control pill.

Enter Rockefeller funding in 1942 (the foundation had just withdrawn its funding from Nazi eugenicists only after America joined WWII and was apparently itching for another eugenic project to fund), heiress Katharine Dexter McCormick’s funding (she underwrote the project), and eugenicist Clarence Gamble’s (heir to Procter & Gamble) Puerto Rican laboratories, which he took over from the U.S. government when funding from the New Deal ended.

With Rockefeller and McCormick money, Margaret Sanger hired controversial reproductive biologist Gregory Pincus to apply what he had learned from his animal testing to humans. They decided that due to the fact that birth control was still illegal in the U.S., and they needed a large cohort to test on, Clarence Gamble’s labs in Puerto Rico would be the perfect place to conduct their trials.

Clarence Gamble was thrilled at the prospect of hosting such an experiment, as he believed the poor Puerto Ricans needed to be “wiped out to make room for more ‘fit’ members of the population.” He had allegedly already accomplished a one-third sterilization rate among the Puerto Rican women due to a governmental policy he helped pass and execute in his labs that coerced women to undergo hysterectomies after their second child, so anything that would allow him to further his eugenic agenda was exciting.

The women involved in these trials totaled around 1,500. Proper informed consent was never obtained. Women were simply told that they were taking a proven, safe drug that prevented pregnancy and that compliance was mandatory. The women involved didn’t even know they were participating in a trial and that the hormones they were ingesting were dangerously high (20x higher than the levels available in the U.S. today). Due to this, many reported severe side effects such as debilitating nausea, headaches, and blood clots. Three died, but their deaths were never investigated. All adverse effects that the pill caused were dismissed and not included in the official reporting submitted to the FDA. A short time later, Enovid, the world's first birth control pill, hit the American market.

A team of Nazi-sympathizing, KKK rally-speaking eugenicists are responsible for birth control.

Due to the ripe social revolutionary climate of the 1960s, Sanger’s eugenics campaign was successful, and by 1965, “one out of every four married women in the U.S. under the age of 45 had used the pill.” Even after women in the U.S. were hospitalized with blood clots, the Puerto Rican trials continued. This was no longer (and in truth, it never was) about providing women “freedom” from their fertility. It was about separating them from it, forever. 

“Birth control itself, often denounced as a violation of natural law, is nothing more or less than the facilitation of the process of weeding out the unfit, of preventing the birth of defectives or of those who will become defectives… If we are to make racial progress, this development of womanhood must precede motherhood in every individual woman.” — Margaret Sanger, Woman and the New Race

Birth Control Is Big Pharma’s Blood Diamond

It might be assumed that after such a violent, bloody, and racist past, the involved elites, as well as the pharmaceutical companies, would seek to distance themselves from such atrocities. It could be reasonably expected that they would provide complete transparency, honesty, and maybe even a public apology with a promise to never violate the Nuremberg Code again. In today's day and age of pandering to the masses, public groveling for such offenses as these would be a given. However, is that what happened? No. In fact, the problem has only gotten much, much worse.

These days the American elite (and I’m sure the European elite as well since the UN is also heavily involved in global population control efforts) are even worse than they were at the height of the eugenics movement in the late 1800s/early 1900s. Their antiquated ideas and beliefs are exactly the same, but the reach and execution of their population control agenda have evolved with the technology of the times, allowing them to harm more women than ever before. These days, it’s a coordinated divide and conquer system among America's wealthiest. 

The Rockefeller Foundation (the family that funded Nazis and their sterilization campaigns) collects birth control and sterilization patents like they’re going out of style.

The Gates Foundation works with third-world country governments and foreign aid groups (that Bill Gates funds) allegedly to covertly sterilize women (and possibly babies) using Rockefeller technology. Using his other company, FHI 360, Gates also carries out birth control “trials” similar to the Puerto Rican trials in other developing nations such as Bangladesh and Haiti. These trials are said to have left dead, disfigured, disabled, and sterilized women in their wake on a scale that exceeds the Puerto Rican experiment.

The intent of hormonal birth control was never to liberate women but to control them. 

On the home front, The Susan Thompson Buffet Foundation is the “leading provider of abortion access for poor women in the U.S.” and "the most influential supporter of research on IUDs and expanding access to the contraceptive." 

Another disturbing statistic is the fact that, in New York City, more black babies are aborted each year than born. State-wide, the number of black abortions to live births are almost equal, with live births barely outpacing abortions, sometimes by mere hundreds. The statistic about abortion is especially important to note as “blacks have the highest poverty rate at 19.5% and non-Hispanic whites the lowest at 8.2%. The poverty rate for blacks and Hispanics is more than double that of non-Hispanic whites.” Considering these statistics, it becomes obvious that the black population in America is clearly being targeted and manipulated by the elite into suppressing their fertility and murdering their unborn.  

This isn’t just an “old money” problem. Even the “new money” has gotten involved. Jeff Bezos’ company, Amazon, proudly announced that it will fund out-of-state abortions for workers after the recent overturning of Roe v. Wade. The interesting fact here is that white people make up only 30% of Amazon’s workforce. Furthermore, “the largest gift from a single donor in Planned Parenthood’s history” was given just this past March by MacKenzie Scott, ex-wife of Jeff Bezos and the 15th wealthiest person in the U.S.

Closing Thoughts

The intent of hormonal birth control was never to liberate women (as if fertility was a thing to be liberated from in the first place) but to control them. One of the most effective methods of birth control is natural family planning, or the fertility awareness method. Boasting a 99% effectiveness rate when used correctly, all it takes is a basal thermometer, a bit of charting, and some education. From this method, a woman learns her fertility cycle and simply abstains from sex whenever she is fertile (which is only a few days each cycle). 

In today's day and age of “ethically sourced,” “cruelty-free” products, we have to ask the question, besides the havoc it wreaks on your own body, is there even an ethical leg left for birth control to stand on?
