We are paying for and even submitting to the dictates of an ever increasing, unceasingly spawning class of human beings who never should have been born at all. The wealth of individuals and of states is being diverted from the development and progress of human expression and civilization.

“sub-human” and founded Planned Parenthood

The number of Hamilton County tots destroyed by government-protected medical practice in 2012 is higher from the year before by a single soul, according to state data.
In 2012 doctors in Knoxville, Nashville and other cities terminated the lives of 307 children whose mothers reside in Hamilton County, Southeast Tennessee’s richest in population. About 345,000 people reside in the county named after Alexander Hamilton, an American founder who favored a mighty national government whose court in 1973 wrote an opinion that Tennesseans understood to prohibit protection of the smallest babies.
The total number of Hamilton County babies destroyed in the past five years:
321 in 2008
346 in 2009
301 in 2010
306 in 2011
307 in 2012
Altogether, that is 1,581 people.
Black, Latino and other nonwhite boys and girls in Hamilton County in this period add up to 485 children.‡ Blacks are 20 percent of the county population, according to the federal census; but nonwhites account for 31 percent of babies terminated. Total “induced terminations” of Tennessee residents for the year are 12,122. Surgeries within the state bucketed 15,859 babies in any of seven clinics that serve a rising clientele of out-of-state mothers.
Most of the babies in question belong to women who by a 5 to 1 ratio conceived them with domestic partners or others outside the bonds of marriage.

Dr. Lawn was quoted in the Cambridge Evening News as saying ‘we are simply using something which is destined for the incinerator, to benefit mankind. *** [O]f course, we would not dream of experimenting with a viable child. We would not consider that to be right.’”
