Give Me Your Tired, Your Poor... Your Wretched Refuse

I got an email from a friend of mine that included an article from World News Daily, regarding a letter sent to then soon to be President Clinton from Ron Weddington.

If anyone doubts that those of us who have been defending the preborn babies have been telling the truth about Planned Parenthood, NARAL, and other pro-abort groups not 'really' being concerned about most of what they claim to be concerned about... go read about (with exerpts) his letter.

Just in case you need a little persuasion:

Weddington told the president-elect: "I don't think you are going to go very far in reforming the country until we have a better educated, healthier, wealthier population."

He said the new leader can "start immediately to eliminate the barely educated, unhealthy and poor segment of our country."

Weddington qualified his statement, saying, "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."

He then goes on to talk about how to beat The Religious Right, even saying that they have lost ground during the "Reagan-Bush Religous Orgy"!

He adds:

"The biblical exhortation to 'be fruitful and multiply' was directed toward a small tribe, surrounded by enemies," he argued. "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 his postscript, Weddington said: "I was co-counsel in Roe v. Wade, [and] have sired zero children and one fetus, the abortion of which was recently recounted by my ex-wife in her book, "A Question of Choice" I had a vasectomy in 1969 and have never had one moment of regret."

The Weddingtons divorced in 1974.

Oh, by the way... those people that Weddington (and Margaret Sanger before him, remember her? The foundress of Planned Parenthood...) speak about know, the poor, the unhealthy, the uneducated??

I wonder what those in the past, especially Emma Lazarus, the woman who wrote the words now found on our Statue Of Liberty would think about the above letter...for in her poem, The New Colossus she told other nations to send theirs HERE!

"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
