Clueless Soft Porn Cosmopolitan Mag Attacks Jessa Duggar

Cosmopolitan magazine, the monthly magazine for liberal women who don’t mind pages filled with superficial airbrushed sleaze, is out of its depth. Cosmo’s senior political writer, Jill Filipovic, reveals why the magazine needs to stick to raunchy sex advice and not attempt commentary on history.

This past weekend, TLC’s Duggar family visited the Holocaust Memorial Museum in DC. Anyone who has ever been there knows how the experience pierces the soul. Jessa Duggar expressed some powerful sentiments on Instagram:

“I walked through the Holocaust Museum again today... very sobering. Millions of innocents denied the most basic and fundamental of all rights--their right to life. One human destroying the life of another deemed "less than human." Racism, stemming from the evolutionary idea that man came from something less than human; that some people groups are "more evolved" and others "less evolved." A denying that our Creator--GOD--made us human from the beginning, all of ONE BLOOD and ONE RACE, descendants of Adam. The belief that some human beings are "not fit to live." So they're murdered. Slaughtered. Kids with Down syndrome or other disabilities. The sickly. The elderly. The sanctity of human life varies not in sickness or health, poverty or wealth, elderly or pre-born, little or lots of melanin [making you darker or lighter skinned], or any other factor… May we never sit idly by and allow such an atrocity to happen again. Not this generation. We must be a voice for those who cannot speak up for themselves. Because EVERY LIFE IS PRECIOUS. #ProLife”

Cosmo went into full anti-woman mode. Filipovic attacked Jessa Duggar for daring to put history into perspective: “Jessa had just walked out of the Holocaust museum, and instead of absorbing the scale of that atrocity, decided to make a point about abortion rights. That's not just tone-deaf; it's deranged.”

Cosmo’s political writer apparently has no appreciation for the role of a museum of that nature. The point of learning of human failings of the past is so we don’t repeat them. Jessa’s remarks on Instagram conveyed a profound understanding of the past and applied it to the present. Over 56 million human lives have been butchered by an abortion industry birthed in the same racist and elitist pseudoscience of eugenics that created the racial hygiene theory that led to the slaughter of millions in the Holocaust.

I know eugenics is big vocabulary for a wannabe porn magazine that masquerades as the voice of American women. Cosmo clearly doesn’t speak for most women. Filipovic laments further about Jessa’s keen revelation: “Regardless of how one feels about the morality of abortion though, comparing it to one of the greatest horrors in modern history is insensitive and clueless, to say the least.”

No, Cosmo. It is you that is clueless. Abortion and the Holocaust are so inextricably tied together, no amount of airbrushing could paint a different picture. The American Eugenics movement was the single-most potent influencer of Hitler’s ethnic and racial cleansing “solutions”. Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger, was a member of the American Eugenics Society (AES). Guttmacher Institute’s founder, Alan F. Guttmacher (also President of Planned Parenthood) was the Vice President of AES. Most leadership involved in Planned Parenthood throughout the early to late 20th century, were involved in the American Eugenics Movement.

Prior to the holocaust, Sanger, like her fellow eugenicists, was a staunch proponent of forced sterilizations (only changing her tune to “voluntary” sterilization after the Holocaust revealed what happens when her rhetoric becomes reality). According to her 1932 article, “Plan For Peace”, she demanded that America “…apply a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is already tainted...”

This led to our country’s forcible sterilization of over 60,000 people. Nazi Germany modeled its actions after what was already happening here in the United States.

Sanger helped to create the World Population Conferences, a global gathering of leading eugenicists, to promote birth control and other forms of population control. One of the leading eugenicists, funded by the same Rockefeller Foundation that funded Sanger’s work, was Eugen Fischer. He was the Director of the Keiser Wilhem Institute for Anthropology, Medical Genetics, and Eugenics in Berlin, Germany. Sanger included Eugen Fischer as a contributing leader in her World Population Conference as evidenced here in the program for the event (h/t Maafa21.com). It was Fischer’s “racial hygiene theory” that Hitler adopted leading to the mass extermination of over 11 million precious lives.

Frederick Osborn (1889-1981), President of The American Eugenics Society, infamously declared in response to Roe v. Wade: “Birth Control and abortion are turning out to be the great eugenic advances of our time.”

Cosmo would like to think the present just magically appears, like flawless skin on their photoshopped models. But it takes real journalists to explore beyond superficial euphemisms and uninformed advocacy.

Edwin Black, a New York Times bestselling investigative author and human rights journalist (who can certainly never be accused of being rightwing or conservative) wrote the authoritative book on how American Eugenics inspired Nazi Germany—War On The Weak. The late Jack Fischel, the first Jewish professor hired at Millersville University, specialized in Holocaust studies and gave a definitive endorsement of Black’s book: 

It is apparent from Black’s research that American eugenicists contributed to Nazi racial hygiene policy. The Nazi experiments with X-rays to sterilize their victims, euthanasia and even the gas chamber were all at one time or another proposed by American eugenicists as a means of eliminating the unfit from American life. To the extent that Black’s research documents this connection between early 20th-century eugenics policy and its extreme escalation by the Nazis in the death camps, the book is a valuable contribution to our understanding of the evolution of the Holocaust.”

Jessa Duggar isn’t blinded to history by the broken lens of liberal feminism. The only thing deranged about tying abortion to the holocaust is deniers like Cosmo and its writers who think abortion is simply a fashionable choice.
