Interesting that the Nixon Presidential Library has just released recordings showing that the former U.S. president "believed legal abortion was 'necessary' in certain cases, such as when the baby was of mixed-race or conceived through rape" (click here for the story).

In Life Dynamics' newly-released documentary Maafa 21 — which I featured in my June 18 column — I was appalled to hear Nixon's racist, pro-abortion, pro-population control mentality, as evidenced by the following transcript of a recording that can be heard in the film (I've edited out two objectionable words):

    March 30, 1972

    Nixon:
    A majority of people in Colorado voted for abortion, I think a majority of people in Michigan are for abortion, I think in both cases, well, certainly in Michigan they will vote for it because they think that what's going to be aborted generally are the little black b------s.

    Unidentified Staff: Sure.

    ----------------------------------------

    April 3, 1972

    Nixon:
    ... as I told you and we talked about it earlier, that a hell of a lot of people want to control all the Negro b------s.

    Unidentified Staff: Yeah.

    Nixon: Isn't that really true?

    Unidentified Staff: Yeah

    ----------------------------------------

    April 3, 1972

    Nixon:
    You know what we are talking about — population control?

    Unidentified Staff: Sure

    Nixon: We're talking really — and what John Rockefeller really realizes — look, the people in what we call the 'our class' control their populations. Sometimes they'll have a family of six, or seven, or eight, or nine, but it's exception.

    Unidentified Staff: Sure.

    Nixon: People who don't control their families are people in — the people who shouldn't have kids. Now that's . . .

    Unidentified Staff: The black population in the city of San Francisco has gone from 3000 — right after World War II — to where they represent 30 percent of the population of San Francisco.

    Nixon: What?

    Unidentified Staff: Yes sir.
