Purposeful De-Construction: Planned Parenthood's Jaffe Memo

Have you ever heard of the Jaffe Memo? It's a memorandum sent in 1969 by Frederick S. Jaffe (then a Planned Parenthood vice-president) to the president of the Population Council. It's a quite disturbing document, revealing as it does that the social decadence occurring in recent decades did not "just happen" by sad accident. Indeed, there have been forces (like Planned Parenthood) purposefully and actively at work breaking down America's moral, economic and social traditions.

Think I'm sounding like a nutty conspiracy theorist? Then take a look at the actual document yourself.

Under the heading of "Examples of Proposed Measures to Reduce U.S. Fertility, by Universality or Selectivity of Impact," Jaffe outlines the following -- and I quote:

* Restructure family:
a) Postpone or avoid marriage
b) Alter image of ideal family size
* Compulsory education of children
* Encourage increased homosexuality
* Educate for family limitation
* Fertility control agents in water supply
* Encourage women to work

* Modify tax policies:
a) Substantial marriage tax
b) Child Tax
c) Tax married more than single
d) Remove parents tax exemption
d) Additional taxes on parents with more than 1 or 2 children in school
* Reduce/eliminate paid maternity leave or benefits
* Reduce/eliminate children's or family allowances
* Bonuses for delayed marriage and greater child-spacing
* Pensions for women of 45 with less than "N" children
* Eliminate Welfare payemnts after first 2 children

 -- Chronic Depression
* Require women to work and provide few child care facilities
* Limit/eliminate public-financed medical care, scholarships, housing, loans and subsidies to families with more than "N" children.

* Compulsory abortion of out-of-wedlock pregnancies
* Compulsory sterilization of all who have two children except for a few who would be allowed three
* Confine childbearing to only a limited number of adults
* Stock certificate type permits for children

* Housing Policies:
a) Discouragement of private home ownership
b) Stop awarding public housing based on family size
* Payments to encourage sterilization
* Payments to encourage contraception
* Payments to encourage abortion
* Abortion and sterilization on demand
* Allow certain contraceptives to be distributed nonmedically
* Improve contraceptive technology
* Make contraception truly available and accessible to all
* Improve maternal health care, with family planning a core element

The American public in 1969 would have considered nearly all of these things not only tyrannical but wildly immoral as well. And so naturally Planned Parenthood was scared of it coming to public notice. But they're not so worried anymore. After all, by skillfully using academia, the press, the courts and the Democrat Party, many of these coercive and culturally destructive policies have become part of American life.

And that's a tragedy that is America's lasting shame.
