Investigative author Edwin Black to give testimony on racist eugenics

Black has been called to testify to the Judiciary Committee of the US House of Representatives as it considers the Pre-Natal Non-Discrimination Act that would restrict abortion on the basis of race.

The Judiciary Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives is holding hearings on December 6 on pending legislation, the Pre-natal Non-Discrimination Act (PRENDA), which addresses infanticide and gendercide. Millions of babies are aborted or murdered in their first moments of life because of their gender or racial make-up. The problem is acute among ethnic communities that value male children over females for cultural reasons, experts say. This practice is sometimes called "son preference."

Renowned investigate journalist and author Edwin Black has been called to testify at the hearing to provide background on the history of eugenics—the pseudo-science that provided the basis for laws that called for the sterilization of so-called “unfit” classes of Americans. Black’s book War Against the Weak details the collusion of government, scientists, and nonprofit institutions such as the Carnegie Foundation, in propagating master-race theory in America. The connections between American racial theorists, and the ultimate practice of genocidal and henious social enginerring conducted by Nazi Germany, is docuemented with crystal clarity in the award-winning book.

Known as PRENDA, the measure is intended to protect the unborn from discriminatory race and sex-selective abortions. It was re-introduced in the House on November 28. PRENDA would restrict “sex-selection abortion and race-selection abortion, and the coercion of a woman to obtain either. The woman seeking an abortion is exempted from prosecution, while abortion providers are held to account,” according to Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.), leading sponsor of the bill. Women are frequently the targets of pressure or violence from family members to coerce the abortion of an unwanted daughter.

“Sex-selection abortion is happening in the United States,” wrote Franks in a letter to colleagues. He cited a 2008 scientific study based on U.S. Census data that showed that certain segments of the U.S. population—particularly those coming from countries that practice sex-selection abortion—have unnaturally skewed sex-ratios at birth caused by sex-selection ‘most likely at the prenatal stages.’”

Black is summoned to Congress as an expert on the subject, having lectured extensively worldwide. He wrote in a statement that he is not coming as an advocate or adversary of any legislation, but rather as “a historian who has chronicled the dark chapters of racist and genocidal eugenics in America and Nazi Germany. I will outline some historical points and answer questions. My remarks will trace the early 20th Century collusion by government, academia, and tax exempt philanthropic organizations in a county-by-county and state-by-state crusade to eventually eliminate an estimated 90 percent of Americans.”

The issue, dormant now for decades, is gaining ground in the political sphere. The focus here is on the abortion of fetuses on the basis of race. Related legislation is being considered elsewhere in the U.S. According to author Black, “The population control and social engineering techniques debated and proffered to legislators included gas chambers, euthanasia, abortion, forced sterilization, confinement, and internal deportation. Many of these techniques were adopted into law, some were debated by legislatures, and some were adopted as de facto policy by governments. Targets were Blacks, Native Americans, Southern Italians, Eastern Europeans, Jews, Hispanics, the poor, criminals, the intellectually unaccepted, the so-called “shiftless,” Appalachian whites with brown hair, and many others.”

The much-reviled Nazi genocide of the enemies of the Third Reich found its intellectual powerhouse in the American eugenicists’ medicalized concept of racial supremacy,” writes Black. He adds, "American philanthropic organizations such as the Rockefeller Foundation and the Carnegie Institution, teamed up with all three branches of the federal government to bolster Nazi eugenics. This all began in a eugenics laboratory in Long Island and ended up in the gas chambers of Auschwitz. Indeed, American philanthropic organizations, such as the Rockefeller Foundation funded Hitler's number one Nazi doctor Otmar von Verschuer. Verschuer's assistant Josef Mengele went into Auschwitz to continue the twin research Rockefeller has funded with his boss.”

North Carolina is now considering compensation for the victims of its eugenic genocide, who as children and young adults were sterilized because of their supposed inferiority to those considered more “fit.” North Carolina State Rep. Larry Womble (D) has spearheaded efforts to address eugenics victims’ incalculable loss. Author Black toured North Carolina extensively earlier this year, providing state legislators, victim groups, and public officials historical testimony and insight into the eugenics collusion that subtracted millions of potential Americans. The North Carolina legislature is deliberating on the proposed compensation. Black stated, "I speak for the never born, for those who never had a chance to exist. Neither the victims nor humanity will ever be properly compensated for their loss."
