Margaret Sanger

In the past I have made references to Planned Parenthood’s founder, the racist, eugenicist Margaret Sanger. I have written about how she was inspired by Darwin to see to it that people who were unfit to produce quality “stock” should not be allowed to have children.

This Darwinian belief led her to champion birth control and Planned Parenthood, which are based on someone more evolved planning your parenthood for you, controlling your births. It was never about “reproductive rights” or “access to healthcare.” In her words, “Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race.” To prove my point, I just want to let Sanger speak for herself; here are some of my favorite Margaret Sanger quotes:

“The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.”

“[We should] apply a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is tainted, or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to offspring.”

(That is from her book Women and the New Race, in a chapter titled “The Wickedness of Creating Large Families)

In April of 1932 in Birth Control Review, Sanger argued for people to be required to have permits before they could have children (both mother and father would be required to obtain one), and that a new permit would be needed for a second child; she said families should have no more than two children. The purpose was “to protect society against the propagation and increase of the unfit.”

She also suggested that people with “bad genes” be given the option of segregation or sterilization. So nice of her to let them choose. Maybe this where they get the label “pro-choice.”

My personal favorite shows her detestation towards black people, which she (along with Charles Darwin) thought were less evolved than white people:

“We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities.  The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”

Her reference to not wanting the word to get out does not mean that they were opposed to exterminating black people; that was her goal. The minister would serve as a propaganda tool to keep the Negros from figuring it out.

Exterminate the Negro population? Did you know that the number one killer of black people is abortion?

Did you also know that more people were aborted last year than died in the entire War on Terror?

Did you know that more people have died at the hands of abortion doctors than at the hands of the Nazis? Or in all of World War II for that matter.

And Margaret Sanger is viewed as a hero. She should be in the same boat as bin Laden and Hitler.

They glorify this woman and make no mention at all of her racist beliefs. Selective memory at it's best. I wonder how she would have felt having a Negro (her word not mine) President "blessing" her organization.

lol, good point Elaine. I don't like having any president bless her organization, and saying "God bless" it is perverse.

It should have been "God help." It actually made me feel a little sick hearing that. Blasphemous.
