Original Sources for the Eugenics Jaffe Memo

While searching for the original source of the Jaffe Memo, the memo from Frederick S Jaffe Vice President of Planned Parenthood to  Bernard Berelson, President of the Population Council on March 11, 1969. (because I always do my research).  I found the same chart as in the Jaffe memo in the Family Planning Perspectives, on JStore (full citation follows).

U.S. Population Growth and Family Planning: A Review of the Literature

While JStore does require a subscription to view most public library allow free access with your library card number.  So as long as you have a library card you have access to download it and view it for yourself.

I also found an interesting comment on Abby Johnson’s Blog with good links.  I have never read this blog before, (apparently she is a former planned parenthood employee turned pro-life).

Dear Friends – My name is Randy Engel, and I am the founder and National Director of the U.S. Coalition for Life, the oldest prolife research agency in the world.

Since it was the USCL which originally exposed the Jaffe/Berelson Memo nearly 40 years ago I thought it necessary to make the following clarifications.

The chart which appears at our USCL research library website [http://uscl.info/edoc/doc.php?doc_id=49&action=inline] is a re-set copy of the chart that originally appeared in Family Planning Perspectives 1970. The FPP text however was too small to read, so I called Planned Parenthood/World Population in NYC and was told there was no copyright on the publication, so the USCL reset the text and distributed the chart almost immediately. Therefore the chart, in its new format has been available to the public from the USCL since 1970.

When we opened the USCL Research Library in February 2008, we posted both the Berelson/Jaffe chart [re-set] as well as the original article by Berelson of the Population Council titled “Beyond Family Planning” online. [http://uscl.info/edoc/doc.php?doc_id=83&action=inline]

The latter should be read in conjunction with the chart in order to understand the significance of the term “population control.”

If you have any questions about either, I can be contacted at rvte61@comcast.net.

Sincerely, Randy Engel, USCL
