I Take Back Taking It Back
The last but one entry actually did make sense after all. I've also been rereading 1989: Population Doomsday by Don Pendleton. It contains the following passage (which I suspect was typical of the era that got population worries into popular culture):
Black militants in Chicago mounted massive demonstrations aimed at disrupting the activities of abortion and sterilization clinics, charging “insidious genocide,” an echo of the 1974 black revolt against family planning clinics in that same city.The social conservatism of that era included a large dose of racism. That racism got into the Culture of Death but it has not been part of the theocon–neocon alliance that currently runs the right side of the political spectrum.
