Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, has been rightfully labelled a racist and promoter of “negative” Eugenics. She sought out to assist Darwinian evolution by means of natural selection, along with promoting the limiting of reproduction of minorities, whom she deemed to be the lesser breeds, “…human weeds,’ ‘reckless breeders,’ ‘spawning… human beings who never should have been born.”
She, indeed, was a racist and spoke in Klu Klux Klan rallies and determined to limit black populations as evidenced by the strategic placement of birth control clinics in densely black populated areas. Yet, the founder of Planned Parenthood, would be immensely opposed to the abortion and body parts industry it has become. Let that sink in for just a moment. Yes, I am saying by all practical assessment of Margaret Sanger’s beliefs, she was very much pro-life or more accurately anti-abortion. She deplored the whole idea of taking a baby’s life after conception.
Margaret Sanger, who coined the term “birth control,” was about women being provided birth control and contraceptive materials to prevent conception. Again, let this sink in. After conception, she recognized there was now a baby, and that to take that baby’s life was abhorring to society. Margaret Sanger states:
“While there are cases where even the law recognizes an abortion as justifiable if recommended by a physician, I assert that the hundreds of thousands of abortions performed in America each year are a disgrace to civilization.”
Sanger not only viewed abortion as a disgrace to civilization, but she makes it clear what she sought to provide in birth control guidance, “To each group we explained simply what contraception was; that abortion was the wrong way—no matter how early it was performed it was taking life.”
It was pretty clear that Margaret Sanger set up a line of distinction between birth control before conception and what Planned Parenthood is preaching to ladies that attend their clinics. Planned Parenthood pushes what they call birth control after conception and to this Margaret Sanger would be strongly opposed, even if it did control what she felt were the inferior populations. No, Margaret Sanger would object to the notion that abortion is an acceptable form of birth control.
This brings us to Planned Parenthood and why even more so, as tax payers and people that believe our forefathers, in constructing the Declaration of Independence, believed in a person’s inalienable right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness from conception, we must stop this number one abortion provider in America in their annual tracks of nearly 350,000 abortions a year. We must vote pro-life. I believe that if Margaret Sanger was alive today, she would have voted pro-life.
