Quoteable Quotes... (stuff people say)

By Darren Handler

The following is taken from a brochure that is published by Planned Parenthood. It contains actual quotes by actual people who, for some, hold high regard in society. When I read this, I was shocked to see what some of these people actually said. I though that this would be interesting for some.

The following DOES NOT represent the views of myself, and may or may not represent the views of my system administrators. (std discl.)

This is not all of the quotes in the pamphlet, but most of them.

On the subject of Birth Control:

"I think contraception is disgusting -- people using each other for pleasure." - Joe Schneider, Director: Pro Life Action League August 1985

"Technical advances permit women to avoid conception for continuation of pregnancy. Women pay dearly for this non-freedom. First, they become slaves of their erotic sensuality, they are easily by the male of the species, they truely become sexual toys, and their de-naturalization now transforms them into nothing more than large semen containers." --- J.C. Espinosa "Birth Control, Why are they Lying to Women" 1980

"We are totally opposed to abortion under any circumstances. We are also opposed to abortifacient drugs and chemicals like the pill and the IUD, and we are also opposed to all forms of birth control with the exception of natural family planning (the rhythm method)" --- Judie Brown, President, American Life Lobby, New York Times, October 6, 1985

"The argument that making contraceptives available to young people would prevent teen pregnancy is ridiculous. Thats like offering a cookbook as a cure to people who are trying to lose weight." --- Rev Jerry Falwell, pres. Moral Majority - Liberty Fnd.

On Sexuality Education:
"Sex education classes are like in-home sales parties for abortions."

"The facts of life can be told in 15 minutes."

"Just tell them to keep your hands out of what's inside your swimsuits -- that takes care of most girls and boys."

"Its very healthy for a young girl to be deterred from promiscuity by fear of contracting a painful, incurable disease, or cervical cancer, or sterility, or the likelihood of giving birth to a dead, blind, or brain-damaged baby (even 10 years later when she may be happily married)." --- All of these were stated by Phyllis Schlafly, President, Eagle Forum

"Sex education in our public schools are promoting incest." --- Rev Jimmy Swaggart, August 19, 1984

On Abortion
"For instance, several years ago we tracked down a twelve year-old girl who was going to have an abortion so that we could talk her out of it. Talking a woman out of having an abortion is not news. But tracking here down by using private detectives is." --- Joseph Scheidler. Director, Pro-Life Action League, 1985
On Clinic Violence:
"Destroying property is sometimes a good way to save lives." ---- Mary Meehan, Editorial Staff, National Catholic Reporter

"On the other hand, groups like Parenthood, the Charter Party, the American Civil Liberties Union, the National Organization of Women, are all part of an anti-Christian network whose cause is to work for anti-Christian goals. That network is overly peopled by members of the Reform Jewish Community and men who I believe to be Free Masons." --- James J. Condit, Jr., Cincinnatus Party's perennial candidate for city council

"Whoever did this [planted a pipe bomb at the Margaret Sanger Center] is a hero. I think they are heros. The bible commands us to rescue those being dragged to death." --- Nancy O'Brien, Co-director Project Jericho, February 23, 1987


"I see a divine hand in this AIDS thing." --- Dr. Jack Willke, Pres. National Right to Life Comm.

"Dr Koop is promoting death for the children and youth of our nation." --- Jim Daiger, Dir, American Life Lobby

"Collectively, homosexuals are acting as a gigantic biological vacuum cleaner scouring the earth for germs -- and the collecting bag is the United States. AIDS is the first fruit of this ugly process, but we can be certain that it will not be the last. As long as homosexuals travel, we can look forward to an unremitting stream of plagues stemming from these disgusting practices. Homosexuality is the #1 public health problem of our times --" --- Fr. Paul Marx, Pres, Human Life International, "The Wanderer" Mar 26, 1987

On Adolescence:
"The words `teenager' and `responsibility' cannot be used in the same sentence." --- Kay James, Dir. of Public Affairs, National Right to Life Committee

"Today's children... They're damned. They're gone." --- James Dobson, "Planned Parenthood and Sex Clinics"

On Sex:

"There is nothing loving about sex."

"Having sex without horniness is a greater expression of love."

"Sex is self-satisfying, but not meant for pleasure." --- Fr. Paul Marx, Human Life International Symposium on Human Sexuality

On sexual abuse:
"Incest is a voluntary act on the woman's part." --- Charles Rice, professor of law, Notre Dame Univ.
On Feminism:
"Inequality is the natural condition." --- Fr. Paul Marx, Human Life International Symposium on Human Sexuality

"Women have babies and men provide the support. If you don't like the way we're made you've got tp take it up with God." ---- Phyllis Schlafly, President, Eagle Forum

"Our G.I.s didn't storm the beachs of Normandy to allow women to fool around." --- Robert Marshall, Research Dir., The Castello Institute

"I listen to the feminists and all these radical gals -- most of them are failures. They've blown it. Some of them gave been married, but they married some Casper Milquetoast who asked permission to go to the bathroom. These women just need a man in the house. That's all they need. Most of these feminists need a man to tell them what time of day it is and to lead the home. And they blew it and they're mad at all men. Feminists hate men. They're sexist. They hate men -- that's their problem." --- Rev. Jerry Falwell
