Planned Parenthood founder, Margaret Sanger, was a member in good standing with the racist American Eugenics Society. Sanger had board members who were known for their racist writing and Sanger published many of those in her publications. Sanger called for parents to have a QUOTE: LICENSE TO BREED controlled by people who believed in her eugenic philosophy. She wanted all would be parents to go before her eugenic boards to request a “PERMIT TO BREED“.
Margaret Sanger once said, “More children from the fit, less from the unfit — that is the chief aim of birth control.” Birth Control Review, May 1919, p. 12
In Margaret Sanger’s, “Birth Control and Racial Betterment,” Feb 1919. Birth Control Review , Library of Congress Microfilm 131:0099B .
Sanger states, “Before eugenists and others who are laboring for racial betterment can succeed, they must first clear the way for Birth Control. Like the advocates of Birth Control, the eugenists, for instance, are seeking to assist the race toward the elimination of the unfit. Both are seeking a single end but they lay emphasis upon different methods.
Eugenists emphasize the mating of healthy couples for the conscious purpose of producing healthy children, the sterilization of the unfit to prevent their populating the world with their kind and they may, perhaps, agree with us that contraception is a necessary measure among the masses of the workers, where wages do not keep pace with the growth of the family and its necessities in the way of food, clothing, housing, medical attention, education and the like.
We who advocate Birth Control, on the other hand, lay all our emphasis upon stopping not only the reproduction of the unfit but upon stopping all reproduction when there is not economic means of providing proper care for those who are born in health. …While I personally believe in the sterilization of the feeble-minded, the insane and syphilitic, I have not been able to discover that these measures are more than superficial deterrents when applied to the constantly growing stream of the unfit… Eugenics without Birth Control seems to us a house builded upon the sands. It is at the mercy of the rising stream of the unfit…“
Sanger also called for those who were poor and what she considered to be “morons and immoral‘ , to be shipped to colonies where they would live in “Farms and Open Spaces” dedicated to brainwashing these so-called “inferior types” into having what Sanger called, “Better moral conduct”.
“ I consider that the world and almost our civilization for the next twenty-five years, is going to depend upon a simple, cheap, safe contraceptive to be used in poverty stricken slums, jungles, and among the most ignorant people. Even this will not be sufficient, because I believe that now, immediately, there should be national sterilization for certain dysgenic types of our population who are being encouraged to breed and would die out were the government not feeding them.”
Planned Parenthood Founder, Margaret Sanger, 1950
In addition, Planned Parenthood’s top award is called the Margaret Sanger Award, despite the fact that Sanger was an admitted Klan speaker. This is what Sanger wrote in her autobiography, “I accepted an invitation to talk to the women’s branch of the Ku Klux Klan…I saw through the door dim figures parading with banners and illuminated crosses…I was escorted to the platform, was introduced, and began to speak…In the end, through simple illustrations I believed I had accomplished my purpose. A dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered.” (Margaret Sanger: An Autobiography, P.366 Read it here http://library.lifedynamics.com//Autobiography/Chapter%2029.pdf)

In 1962, Vice President of the American Eugenics Society at the time, Dr. Alan Guttmacher wants abortion laws patterned after Sweden and other nations. One reason they list to allow abortions is :EUGENIC ! Also- Guttmacher at this point says he does NOT BELIEVE that abortion should be left up to the patient or their doctor, rather it should be up to “Special Board” to approve the abortion.

Special Report: Sterilization victims talk about their pain
WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Two women from southeastern North Carolina are among the thousands of victims of the state’s Eugenics program. For more than 40 years, officials ordered doctors to perform sterilizations on more than 7,600 men, women, boys and girls to keep them from having children that would likely need social services.
Many of the victims of this program had some mental disabilities, and were categorized at the time as “feebleminded” or “retarded”. Some patients diagnosed with epilepsy were also sterilized, according to state records. While officials cannot pinpoint the exact number of victims still alive, as of 2010 the State Center for Health Statistics estimated that number to be around 2,940.
Lela Dunston is one of those victims. Lela grew up in Wilmington, living with her family on Queen Street. A psychological examination at the age of 12 said Lela was in need of special education. “They told my mother I was feebleminded,” she says. “And that I wasn’t capable of having children.”
But Lela did have a child when she was 14. Her son James still lives with her today in Raleigh. After James was born in 1963, the Eugenics Board of North Carolina ordered doctors to sterilize Lela so she could not have any more children. A move she has trouble understanding nearly 50 years later.
“God put us in this world to produce children, not get rid of them,” Lela said from her home in Raleigh. “He didn’t do it so someone could take all your organs so you can’t have any children”.
Elnora Mills is another sterilization victim, but her story is different than Lela Dunston’s story. Elnora grew up in Brunswick County, and still lives in an area of Maco not far from her parent’s home. She had a nervous breakdown in June of 1966 and spent one month in a psychiatric hospital. The following year, at the age of 16, Elnora had to go to the hospital for what records say was an appendectomy. During that same surgery, after Elnora’s parents approved the state’s order, doctors at New Hanover Memorial Hospital also sterilized her. “My momma and daddy probably thought it was right for them to do it,” Elnora said from her home.
No one ever told Elnora about the sterilization at the time. It wasn’t until 1969, when Elnora and her husband Buddy tried to have children that she found out. She learned during a doctor’s appointment. She remembers walking out of the office and telling her husband. “When I read to him what they did to me, he cried,” she said, getting emotional during our interview. “They (the doctors in 1967) should have told me what they did to me. I didn’t think it was right that I had to wait until 1969 to find out my tubes were cut and burnt.”
Lela Dunston and some other eugenics victims testified in public hearings held in 2011 by the N.C. Justice for Sterilization Victims Foundation. Governor Beverly Perdue formed the group to work on identifying victims, and recommending compensation on behalf of the State of North Carolina. Elnora did not know about the effort until watching a report in January on WECT’s sister station, Fox Wilmington News at 10. After calling the newsroom, Elnora was put in touch with the Foundation, and along with Lela is now eligible for restitution the state might pay to the victims. Foundation members are recommending $50,000 to each surviving victim.
“I think it’s bogus,” Lela said when asked her opinion on the recommendation. “I would tell them they are wrong, and the state needs to compensate me better than they’re thinking about paying me”.
Elnora agrees that $50,000 is not enough compensation for the victims. “You can’t put a price tag on that,” she said. “My husband has missed out on not having children. Money can’t take care of what happened to me. They shouldn’t have done what they did without telling me.”
Lawmakers in the General Assembly are expected to take up the Foundation’s recommendation when they reconvene in May.
