Elaine Riddick, an African-American rape survivor who years ago was the victim of eugenic sterilization by the State of North Carolina without her knowledge or consent, is endorsing Senator Ted Cruz for president, because of his stance for life and refusal to support Planned Parenthood.
Riddick, whose forcible sterilization was ordered by the Eugenics Board of North Carolina in 1968, is very outspoken on Planned Parenthood’s eugenic agenda. The abortion giant was founded by Margaret Sanger, who pushed eugenic ideology.
“Euphemisms and sterilization target code words – for example, ‘feebleminded’ – were used to describe Black women like me,” Riddick wrote in a 2014 op-ed:
I was forcibly sterilized at the age of 14 years under North Carolina’s inhumane forced sterilization policy. A policy that was derived from Margaret Sanger’s Planned Parenthood population control handbook, which spread across the United States by her loyal band of eugenicists and lobbying our elected officials.
This is Riddick’s story excerpted from the film Maafa21:
Shortly after this interview, Riddick testified before the North Carolina State Legislature in a successful effort to receive compensation for the sterilization. “They cut me open like I was a hog,” Elaine Riddick testified tearfully. Riddick told the lawmakers that her only crime was being poor, Black, and from a bad home environment.
North Carolina was not the only state whose eugenics programs were influenced by friends of Sanger or Planned Parenthood. In some parts of the country, Planned Parenthood was closely associated with state eugenics boards and was often a referral agency for them.
Riddick told Live Action News that any politician who supports abortion and Planned Parenthood will never get her support. This is why she has been an outspoken advocate of Ted Cruz rather than Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump.
As a victim of eugenics herself, Riddick is convinced that the Black community had been targeted with population control, specifically abortion. Research shows that family planning centers and abortion facilities often set up their locations in or near minority communities. In 2011, statistics published by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) revealed that almost 56% of all abortions reported for race were done on minority women. According to the latest report dated November 27, 2015, in 2012, over 55% of abortions reported for race/ethnicity were performed on Black or Hispanic women. According to those stats, Black women had the highest abortion rate (27.8 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15–44 years) and accounted for 36.7% of abortions reported for race/ethnicity.
“Planned Parenthood’s fundamental strategy for Population Control of Black and low income women was forced sterilizations and abortions,” Riddick points out. She believes Blacks are either a target on the streets or a target in the womb and she believes that a person who values life in the womb will value all life.
Riddick is very critical of the Democratic presidential candidates because of their abortion stance – most notably Hillary Clinton, whom she says once praised Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood. Riddick says:
Margaret Sanger persistently dehumanized Blacks, low-income children, the disabled, mentally ill, immigrants, and impoverished women, by classifying them as “human weeds,” “spawning… human beings who never should have been born.”
Riddick believes that Clinton’s support for Planned Parenthood translates to “lynching [African Americans] in the womb.”
When asked about GOP Presidential contender Donald Trump, Riddick didn’t mince words:
Are you kidding me? He supports Planned Parenthood – bottom line…. Anybody that supports Planned Parenthood, then, it’s not about human life…. He’s not a pro-lifer if he supports Planned Parenthood.
Riddick says that because of other candidates’ support for abortion and Planned Parenthood, she sees no other option besides Ted Cruz:
I love Cruz because he stands for life – number one. Anybody that stands for life deserves to have the chance. He will be a protector of all lives.
