Part Two - Eugenics and Abortion Sarah Kovar, Class of 2014

Planned Parenthood, on one hand, could be argued as socially progressive because of the power it initially gave women to decide when and how many children they wanted. However, their tainted history has not gone away and what has inevitably happened is that there has become a link between Planned Parenthood and their targeting African American communities. There is a troubling connection between the numbers of Planned Parenthood clinics in the minority community. In 1975 minorities were 50% more likely to obtain an abortion. As the number of Planned Parenthood clinics have grown and their concentration in African American and minority communities has skyrocketed, so have those statistics. 79% of Planned Parenthood clinics are located in minority neighborhoods. This coincides with the amount of abortions in the African Americans community, 1 abortion for every 1.3 live births. Abortions in the African American community occur 3 times that of the white population and twice as many as all other races combined. If Planned Parenthood’s goal is to truly “insure access to all,” there should be the same access to clinics in all areas of society. Another inconvenient truth is Planned Parenthood’s current donation policy. Lila Rose, a student at UCLA and editor of a pro-life magazine, The Advocate, had her journalists go undercover to see if Planned Parenthood clinics would accept specific donations to target African American children. “No Planned Parenthood employee (or director of development, in one case) declined the tainted money… In the

Conservative Perspective 150th Anniversary of Lincoln’s First Inauguration Jared Johnson, Class of 2013

By now many readers will suspect that this writer for the CR Monthly has a keen interest in the Civil War. For the record, this is certainly true. As a student of the War for over seven years and a re-enactor for six, I have come to appreciate what I have learned and am thankful that there are many out there who want to learn more about the greatest war in America’s history. To go along with this theme of the Civil War, Friday is March 4th. For many, this is the start of the weekend and a chance to relax with friends. For others it is a homework weekend. For me, however, it is the start of the greatest Presidency this nation has ever seen. This Friday March 4th is the 150th Anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s First Inauguration. This represents what it means to be a Republican. With Lincoln taking the oath of office, he became the first Republican President in the U.S. He led the way in creating and implementing Republican ideological stances on issues that still exist to this day. Most importantly, he was the main person who held the Union together and eventually freed more than four million peoples held in bondage. So, as March 4th comes around, let us take a minute to remember what Lincoln and his administration did for the United States. In honor of this event, there is a reenactment of Lincoln’s swearing in at the Capitol

Visitor Center beginning at 10:00 AM, followed by a march up Pennsylvania Avenue and then a dinner at the Willard Hotel this Saturday, March 5th. I hope that the readers will take at least some time this weekend to reflect on what Abraham Lincoln did for the nation, not only as a Republican, but also as the greatest President this country has ever had.
