Sanger was racist, elitist and deadly effective
By J. Michael Sharman – Editorial Columnist
Margaret Sanger founded Planned Parenthood with this policy in mind: People she believed to be unfit or unworthy should have their babies weeded out, and those whom she believed to be fit should flourish.
In an article Sanger wrote in 1921 titled, “The Eugenic Value of Birth Control Propaganda,” she said,
“As an advocate of Birth Control, I wish to take advantage of the present opportunity to point out that the unbalance between the birth rate of the ‘unfit’ and the ‘fit’, admittedly the greatest present menace to civilization, can never be rectified by the inauguration of a cradle competition between these two classes. In this matter, the example of the inferior classes, the fertility of the feeble-minded, the mentally defective, the poverty-stricken classes, should not be held up for emulation to the mentally and physically fit though less fertile parents of the educated and well-to-do classes. On the contrary, the most urgent problem today is how to limit and discourage the over-fertility of the mentally and physically defective.”
In 1925, she bemoaned the fact that, “[T]rainloads of children keep on coming – human weeds crop up that spread.”
Like Sanger, Charles Darwin’s theories were completely shaped by his racist views of man-kind.
In fact, the complete title of Darwin’s 1859 book is: “The Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life.”
In 1938, Margaret Sanger echoed Darwin’s racial philosophy while endorsing Nazi eugenics policy:
“It is time [to] plan to stem the tide of production of the unfit and try to turn it in the right direction. … Although the multiplication of the unfit is a world problem, we are here concerned with its impact on this country primarily. Birth control, properly directed, is an implement of vast importance in conservation of the race.
…[O]f 1,500 women admitted as charity obstetrical patients at Johns Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore, 39% of the whites and 70% of the negroes were found to have a mental age of 11 years or less. …
The Government sends all kinds of literature through its numerous departments to inform farmers and livestock breeders as to how they can improve produce-by nurturing the good and eliminating the bad stock. But when it comes to human beings these same agencies prefer to patch and tinker rather than to prevent or eliminate.
… Surely everyone will agree that the children of parents so afflicted are no contribution to the nation for even if they do not inherit these defects they are children of parents so handi-capped that life will give them little, owing to their necessarily bad environment.
…There are 1,700 special courts and 27 higher courts in Germany to review the cases certified for sterilization there. The rights of the individual could be equally well safeguarded here…”
Today, 50 percent of all African-American women’s pregnancies end in an abortion, com-pared to only 16 percent of white women’s. Even though Black women are only 13.7 percent of the total female population of child bearing age, the Guttmacher Institute says that they ac-count for 29.6 percent of all abortions.
Planned Parenthood’s Margaret Sanger was racist, elitist, and unfortunately, deadly effective.
My sister sent me a link to this site, Too Many Aborted. Here is a statement from their site:
Here is the simple truth. The intent of Sanger’s Negro Project is firmly intact. Nearly 40% of all African-American pregnancies end in induced abortion.9 This is by design. Abortion kills more black people than the seven leading causes of death combined (heart disease, cancer, strokes, accidents, diabetes, homicide, and chronic lower respiratory diseases) according to CDC data.10 The African-American abortion rate is 3x that of the white population and over 2x that of all other races combined.

Lord have mercy!
