Racist Margaret Sanger praised by Planned Parenthood

Accolades to the racist founder of Planned Parenthood have been published by the organizations Colorado Affiliate. According to a Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains (PPRM) 2008 annual report, the organization wants you to think of them [Planned Parenthood] when you think of Sanger, writing “We Are Planned Parenthood” and calling Margaret Sanger a “Heroine.”

    Planned Parenthood is rooted in the courage and tenacity of American women and men willing to fight for women’s health, rights, and equality. Margaret Sanger, Planned Parenthood’s founder, is one of the movement’s great heroines. Sanger’s early efforts remain the hallmark of Planned Parenthood’s mission to:

    Provide contraception and other health services to women and men;

    Fund research on birth control and educate specialists and the public about the results;

    Advance access to family planning in the United States and around the world.

    Women’s progress in recent decades — in education, in the workplace, in political and economic power — can be directly linked to Sanger’s crusade for women’s reproductive freedom.

And again here.

Planned Parenthood Margaret Sanger Racist Heroine

Well…the largest chain of abortion clinics which targets minority communities for abortion left out a tiny detail about this alleged heroine:

SHE WAS A RACIST MEMBER OF THE EUGENICS MOVEMENT.

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 writings and Sanger published many of those in her publications.

EugenicsBoardSanger

Planned Parenthood was also steeped in eugenics and to this day their top award is called the Margaret Sanger Award, despite the fact that Sanger was an admitted Klan speaker.

Margaret Sanger and Autobiography

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 https://ia802607.us.archive.org/1/items/margaretsangerau1938sang/margaretsangerau1938sang.pdf)

Sanger Autobiography Klan Speech
This blog has documented those views many times, so I will not go over them one by one here. If you want more information, I recommend the film, Maafa21 for documentation on Sanger’s beliefs.

But, interestingly, Planned Parenthood is not alone.

Hillary Clinton admires Margaret Sanger

Hillary Clinton has also praised the racist founder – read about that here.

Black pastors decry Bust of racist Planned Parenthood founder at Smithsonian

Posted in Black Panthers, Black pro-life leaders, Margaret Sanger with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 11, 2015 by saynsumthn

A group of Black pastors has sent a letter to the Smithsonian asking that they remove the bust of controversial racist Margaret Sanger.

Margaret Sanger Bust National Portrait GalleryMargaret Sanger Bust

Ministers Taking a Stand addressed their concerns to Ms. Kim Sajet, Director The National Portrait Gallery at the Smithsonian Institution.

Writing:

    We are writing to ask that Margaret Sanger’s likeness be removed from all National Portrait Gallery exhibits. Her bust should not be part of the Gallery’s “Struggle for Justice” exhibit, which honors “great achievements…striking down long-standing segregationist practices and discrimination in American society.”

    Ministers Take a STand

    Ms. Sanger may have been a lot of things, but a “champion of justice” she definitely was not.

    Perhaps the Gallery is unaware that Ms. Sanger supported black eugenics, a racist attitude toward black and other minority babies; an elitist attitude toward those she regarded as “the feeble minded;” speaking at rallies of Ku Klux Klan women; and communications with Hitler sympathizers.

    Also, the notorious “Negro Project” which sought to limit, if not eliminate, black births, was her brainchild.

Sanger Autobiography Klan Speech

The letter also mentions the recent baby parts videos exposing Planned Parenthood’s gruesome organ harvesting operation.

    “Until now the national spotlight has not fallen on Sanger’s background. However, the recent revelations about aborted babies’ organs and body parts being sold, have not only brought Planned Parenthood under intense scrutiny, but also raised questions about its founder, Margaret Sanger. If the revelations were not consistent with her character and ideas, one might argue that Planned Parenthood has ‘gone rogue’ and abandoned Sanger. The fact is that the behavior of these abortionists, their callous and cavalier attitude toward these babies, is completely in keeping with Sanger’s perverse vision for America.”

Margaret Sanger from her autobiography

The Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery catalogs more than 100,000 portrait records from the Catalog of American Portraits (CAP), a survey of American portraits in public and private collections across the United States and abroad.

The CAP encompasses portraits of American subjects or by American artists, generally limited to one-of-a-kind likenesses such as paintings, sculpture, drawings, miniatures, silhouettes, and daguerreotypes.

The Margaret Sanger Bust was made in 1964 a few years before the Planned Parenthood founder died.

The bronze sculpture was created by artist Joy Buba in 1972 and cast after a 1964 original and owned by the National Portrait Gallery, Smithsonian Institution.

2009 audio of NPG director Martin Sullivan who explained the portrait to a group visiting the museum said the Bust is located in the “Search for Justice” room which includes César Chávez and heroes of the Mexican revolution among others.

Sanger KKK

Sanger, who praised by the Klan, was also admired by 2016 presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton.

The Black group said this letter is the first among many efforts to expose the racist Planned Parenthood founder.

Stand PP Margaret Sanger

Ironically, Sanger’s bust is featured in the NPG’s “Struggle for Justice” exhibit, alongside two of America’s most celebrated and authentic champions of equal rights. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and Rosa Parks. If Sanger had her way, MLK and Rosa Parks would not have been born ,” the pastors write.

Black Pastors oppose Margaret Sanger Bust Smithsonian

How can a person like Sanger, who found common cause with the racial agenda of the Ku Klux Klan (“KKK”), be ranked among true champions of “justice?” She was a purveyor of grave injustice against the most vulnerable,” they continued.

Ministers Take a STand Smithsonian Margaret Sanger 1Ministers Take a STand Smithsonian Margaret Sanger 2

Read the full letter here.

The Smithsonian has refused to remove the Bust.

Bishop EW Jackson has suggested ( to Fox) that the Margaret Sanger Bust be placed in exhibits of the Klan or in a “hall of shame.”

It is equivalent to a Black genocide and she should not be honored at the Smithsonian Gallery,” he said.

A documentary I did the research for that was produced in 2009, called Maafa21, details the racist views of Sanger and is worth viewing.

NARAL tweets article quoting eugenicist Margaret Sanger founder of Planned Parenthood

Posted in Margaret Sanger, NARAL with tags , , , , , , on May 18, 2015 by saynsumthn

NARAL Pro-choice NC is a friend of Planned Parenthood that is why it was a puzzle to me when they tweeted to a story on forced sterilizations that begins with a Margaret Sanger quote.

NARAL Forced sterilization

“We Will Not Be Erased: Confronting the History of Black Women and Forced Sterilization http://www.forharriet.com/2015/05/we-will-not-be-erased-history-of-black.html … via @ForHarriet,” NARAL Tweeted.

For Harriet

For Harriet author, Anna Nti-Asare, writes:

    “More children from the fit, less from the unfit.”

    These words were supposedly spoken by Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, and resonate with contemporary attempts to eradicate Black existence. In response to these words, I want to bring light to an issue that many forget or are unaware of. It is a history of social injustice that affects Black women’s reproductive rights and the civil rights of people of color as a whole. Furthermore, it is a reminder that the attempts to erase our people have come in many different forms.

    I am talking about the little known history of forced sterilization.

Unfortunately, that is where the For Harriet story ends as far as Margaret Sanger is concerned – yet- the out-spoken advocate of forced sterilization said much more.

By sterilizing Black women and those she and her eugenics friends considered feeble-minded, Sanger could guarantee they would never become pregnant again.

Margaret Sanger from her autobiography

In Margaret Sanger’s, “Birth Control and Racial Betterment,” Sanger states clearly that eugenics, the ideology Stone denounces is not complete without birth control , “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 unfitEugenics 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”.

In an interview with Mike Wallace, Sanger called the bringing of these “unfit” children, created by God in the womb, into the world a sin:

Just who was Sanger directing her Birth Control Pill advocacy towards? Her description is below

Sanger I Consider

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,” Sanger wrote in 1950, “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.”

The Planned Parenthood founder was also a racist:

In her Autobiography KKK

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.” (Source: Margaret Sanger: An Autobiography, P.366 and Maafa21. )

Sanger 1965 Population Control

In 1964, Planned Parenthood founder, Margaret Sanger said she believed that it would take the US Government to accept “Population Control” to convince other nations to do the same.

I just don’t see how we can control the birth rate until we get the government to agree that this is something which should be taken seriously. Other countries feel that if our government is against it, it must be bad. Americans would be much more acceptable when they go abroad to work on the problem if we get our government to approve it- perhaps under some such term as population control,” Sanger stated.

Former Klan speaker candidate for $20 bill portrait, Blacks outraged !

REPUBLISHING from LIFE DYNAMICS Blog !!!

Black leaders say they are outraged to discover that former Klan speaker, Margaret Sanger, has been selected as one of the candidates to replace Andrew Jackson on the twenty dollar bill.

Woman on 20’s founder, Barbara Ortiz Howard who hatched the campaign to replace Andrew Jackson with an “American women hero,” is seeking the help of President Obama, an avid supporter of Planned Parenthood, the group Margaret Sanger founded.

Barbara Howard Margaret Sanger FB Woman on 20

The group’s mission reads:

    It’s our mission to generate an overwhelming people’s mandate for a new $20 bill, to be issued in time for the 100th anniversary in 2020 of the Constitutional amendment giving women the right to vote. Think of it as honoring the vote by casting your vote. The process of commissioning, designing and minting a new bill takes years, so now is a good time to act.

It sounds like a noble effort, right?

Until you realize that among the list of potential candidates the group has suggested is Planned Parenthood founder, Margaret Sanger.

Margaret Sanger 20 dollar bill Woman on 20s

According to Woman on 20’s the candidates were chosen from a field of 30 through a “vigorous survey process involving more than a dozen women’s historians and academicians.”

The website does not list the names, affiliations, or political slant of the select committee however.

The group chose the $20.00 bill because the year 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment that granted women the right to vote.

According to the US Treasury Department, currency portraits are selected by the Secretary of the Treasury and unless specified by an Act of Congress, the Secretary generally has the final approval. This is done with the advice of Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP) officials.

“The law prohibits portraits of living persons from appearing on Government Securities. Therefore, the portraits on US currency notes are of deceased persons whose places in history the American people know well,” the official government website states.

Sec-Lew24-t

The current Secretary of the Treasury is Jacob Jack Lew who previously served as Obama’s White House Chief of Staff.

Lew has also served as special Assistant to President Clinton from 1993 to 1994.

The Clinton as well as the Obama administrations promote radical pro-abortion legislation and both supported Planned Parenthood.

In fact, President Obama once ended a speech to the abortion giant by stating, “Thank you Planned Parenthood, God bless you.”

Margaret Sanger was an avowed racist and, in her autobiography, which Life Dynamics has on file, the Planned Parenthood founder even discussed a speech she gave at a Ku Klux Klan rally in Silver Lake New Jersey.

In her Autobiography KKK

She bragged about the fact that, afterward, she was invited by 12 other Klan chapters to speak at their events.

Sanger even wrote that she found the Klan to be an interesting group.

SangerKKKBook

In their film, Maafa21 Black Genocide in 21st Century America, Life Dynamics has documented some of Margaret Sanger’s so-called accomplishments:

    In 1927, Margaret Sanger organized the World Population Conference in Geneva Switzerland and gave it front page coverage in her Birth Control Review. The events program shows that several of its attendees were colleagues of Sanger’s from the American Eugenics Movement. It also documents that among those who were given a leadership role in the conference was Eugen Fischer, the man who eventually lead the Nazi effort to eradicate blacks from Europe.

    Fischer Sanger

    In 1932, Margaret Sanger called for the U.S. government to set aside farms and what she called “open spaces” where certain groups of people would be segregated from the rest of society. She proposed that, among others, the illiterate, the unemployed and the poor should be forcibly kept in these areas until they developed “better moral conduct.”

    FarmsandOpenSpaces

    In 1934, Planned Parenthood founder, Margaret Sanger, had proposed that the U. S. government implement a system in which women would not have the legal right to have a child without a permit from the government and that these permits would only be good for one baby.

    License to Breed Sanger Bizarre Ideas

The film points out, that defenders of Margaret Sanger try to distance her from her racist past by saying that she was not a eugenicist and that Planned Parenthood was never part of the eugenics movement. But the truth is that, as late as 1956, the American Eugenics Society listed Sanger as a member of the organization. In addition, many of Sanger’s colleagues and the people whose writings she published, as well as many of Planned Parenthood’s officers, were known to be Members of the American Eugenics Society.

Sanger AES

Now, Black leaders are outraged that Margaret Sanger has even been selected as a candidate for US currency and they are speaking out:

Clenard CHildress

Rev. Clenard Childress, president of LEARN Northeast, a national African American organization, sent this comment to Life Dynamics, “This is the most diabolical, racist person of the century why have her on the twenty dollar bill? I think it would be a total disrespect to African Americans and minorities because of her eugenics history.

Day_Gardner-225x263

Former Miss Delaware, Day Garner was livid, “Margaret Sanger was a despicable woman who believed that the only people worthy of life –be white and perfect,” she said.

The fact is substantiated by her Negro Project which was specifically designed to infiltrate Black neighborhoods in order to kill off the Black race via sterilization and abortion.”

Gardner became the first black woman to be named a semifinalist in the renowned Miss America Pageant, breaking through numerous racial and stereotypical roadblocks.

Presently, Dr. Gardner is the founder and president of the National Black Pro-Life Union on Capitol Hill.

RyanBomberger

Andrew Jackson had a vile view of certain human beings, especially Native Americans,” says Radiance Foundation founder, Ryan Bomberger.

Liberal activists want to replace someone who advocated “Indian Removal” with someone who advocated the removal of “human weeds”?

“Jackson’s racism was no less repugnant than Margaret Sanger’s thoroughly documented eugenic racism and elitism. Surely there are great American women we can honor who advocated for the elevation, and not the elimination, of other human beings,” Bomberger said.

Bomberger has garnered massive media coverage from CNN, USA Today, Yahoo News, MSNBC, NY Times, LA Times, JET, NPR, BET, ABC World News, Charisma, Christian Post, the AP, and Fox News, for his public views on race related issues.

Dr. Johnny Hunter Maafa21 Learn

The reason some people want Andrew Jackson removed from US currency is because he politically fought on the side of slavery,” Dr Johnny Hunter, national director of LEARN, Inc., said in response.

Why in the world would they put Margaret Sanger in his place? Sanger was far more more racist and is still killing Blacks from her grave,” Dr. Hunter stated.

Margaret Sanger 20 bill Woman on 20s

Women on 20’s says that they are asking individuals to vote, and “corporations can too — by supporting our mission with your endorsements and dollars.”

One wonders how long before a juicy Planned Parenthood check will be delivered to the group.

Walter Hoye 1

Putting Margaret Sanger on the twenty dollar bill is the personification of BLOOD MONEY, and the real time realization of the fact that America is no longer trusting in God,” said Rev. Walter B. Hoye, founder of Issues for Life, an organization which works with Black American leaders nationwide.

Do you agree?

Christianity Today: Eugenics proponent Margaret Sanger emphatic about social good of contraception

Posted in Margaret Sanger, Media Bias, Media Christian with tags , , , , , , , , , on March 12, 2015 by saynsumthn

Christianity Today has just released an article praising the birth control efforts of Margaret Sanger, the racist founder of Planned Parenthood.

Guest author, Rachel Marie Stone, penned the “Contraception Saves Lives“, article, where she describes the piece as, “Reconsidering Margaret Sanger as one who was opposed to abortion but emphatic about the personal and social good of contraception.”

Christianity today praises Margaret Sanger

Despite the sickening character of Margaret Sanger as a proponent of eugenics which Stone admits to, she attempts to paint the Planned Parenthood founder as compassionate towards women who suffered in child birth, writing of one case:

    The young nurse had been called to the apartment of Sadie Sachs, a poor woman who was extremely ill after attempting to perform an abortion on herself. Sadie begged the doctor to tell her how she might avoid future pregnancies.

    He suggested, coldly, that Sadie — a young married woman — abstain from sex entirely.

    Not long after, the young nurse was again summoned to Sadie Sachs’ apartment, where the same scenario was unfolding. This time, though, Sadie died from her attempt to abort her unborn child.

    The young nurse — whose name was Margaret Sanger — threw her medical bag across the room in fury and vowed that she could not go on nursing until she had helped to make effective birth control widely available to working class and poor women.

Rachel Marie Stone-

When asked to write the piece, Stone said this, “I wasn’t sure how to reply; Sanger founded Planned Parenthood, which, contrary to what Sanger would have wished, is today the largest provider of abortions in the United States. As it happens, Planned Parenthood did not, in Sanger’s day, provide abortions. Sanger herself opposed abortion, saying that “no matter how early it was performed it was taking a life.” But Sanger, like many medical professionals in her day, did hold eugenicist ideas. Eugenics were enshrined into compulsory sterilization laws in many U.S. states and supported by organizations like the Women’s Christian Temperance Union. I do not mean to excuse Sanger for holding these views, but I do want to give the charge of “eugenicist” a more complete background.”

Rachel Marie Stone defends Margaret Sanger

Let’s pause for one clarification, if Ms. Stone was not defending Margaret Sanger in her Christianity Today piece, why did she send out this tweet saying, “I am @amyjuliabecker ‘s blog today, defending #MargaretSanger and talking about how #birthcontrol saves lives. http://ow.ly/Kc2qr”

After taking some heat, Stone back tracked slightly:

Rachel Marie Stone defends Margaret Sanger 2

It is true that Sanger opposed abortions as I detail here, however, what Stone leaves out is that she had a more permanent solution to abortion, forced sterilization.

By sterilizing Black women and those she and her eugenics friends considered feeble-minded, Sanger could guarantee they would never become pregnant again.

Margaret Sanger from her autobiography

In Margaret Sanger’s, “Birth Control and Racial Betterment,” Sanger states clearly that eugenics, the ideology Stone denounces is not complete without birth control , “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 unfitEugenics 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”.

In an interview with Mike Wallace, Sanger called the bringing of these “unfit” children, created by God in the womb, into the world a sin:

To further complicate Stone’s assumption of Sanger as a purveyor of “social good” the Planned Parenthood founder was also a racist:

In her Autobiography KKK

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.” (Source: Margaret Sanger: An Autobiography, P.366 and Maafa21. )

In her article, Stone makes a reference to Government funded birth control in ObamaCare accusing those who opposed it of labeling women, promiscuous or lazy or selfish, unwilling to host a blessing from the Lord:

    “A woman’s desire for birth control is, even today, regarded suspiciously, as was seen in public discussions around the birth control provisions of the Affordable Care Act — as if women desiring birth control were promiscuous or lazy or selfish, unwilling to host a blessing from the Lord, which children certainly are. But those of us who live privileged lives — relative to the urban poor of a hundred years ago, and relative to the millions of women in the majority world — are not always able to appreciate what access to birth control meant, and means, in these times and places,” Stone writes.

Well, Ms. Stone, are you not aware that many chemicals now labeled contraceptive are, in fact, abortive and that is one of the main oppositions to the government mandate?

But, since Ms. Stone is interested in Margaret Sanger’s view on all of this, allow me to give it.

Sanger 1965 Population Control

In 1964, Planned Parenthood founder, Margaret Sanger said she believed that it would take the US Government to accept “Population Control” to convince other nations to do the same.

I just don’t see how we can control the birth rate until we get the government to agree that this is something which should be taken seriously. Other countries feel that if our government is against it, it must be bad. Americans would be much more acceptable when they go abroad to work on the problem if we get our government to approve it- perhaps under some such term as population control,” Sanger stated.

If Stone wants to advocate for contraception, that is one thing, but for her to try and convince the world that Sanger’s motives were compassionate, that is a completely different story.

For more on this controversy, read the following posts by others:

Christianity Today Mag Wants to Reconsider Margaret Sanger By Ignoring History, by Ryan Bomberger.

Christian blog says Margaret Sanger contraception agenda was good, by Life Dynamics, producer of the film on Sanger, Maafa21.

Bizarre Christianity Today Article Whitewashes Planned Parenthood’s Sanger, by the Institute on Religion and Democracy.

“Christianity Today” Claims That Contraception Saves Lives and Attempts To Paint Margaret Sanger In a Good Light. My Response To This Ludicrous Article. By, Bryan Kemper at Stand True.

After all the controversy, Amy Julia Becker, whose Christian Post Blog Stone was writing for, gave her explanation as to why she published the piece:

“The purpose of the post was to draw attention to the number of women, children, and unborn babies who die in countries without access to contraception, she writes.

She continued:

    Rather, an Internet maelstrom of comments on Stone’s original post and hundreds of tweets ensued, all in response to the way Stone depicted Margaret Sanger, founder of what is now the organization Planned Parenthood. These concerns center on Sanger’s deplorable eugenic positions and racism. As the mother of a child with Down syndrome; as someone who has advocated again and again for the value of every human life; as someone who has curated series about abortion, prenatal testing, and racial reconciliation in the church—I care deeply about rooting out any eugenic tendencies in our current context. I care deeply about exposing and confessing racism and working together toward reconciliation.

    So I pay attention when writers and Christians like Timothy Dalrymple offer this critique of the post (in the comments section):

    I hope you can make this argument more powerfully and more effectively in future by not making it seem as though one must accept or pseudo-accept Sanger in order to agree.

Amy Julia Becker said she will continue her contraception conversation from those opposed and those in favor, but, I get the feeling she will leave Sanger out of that conversation- we shall see.

CDC censors Planned Parenthood founder’s ties to Klan and Eugenics

Posted in CDC, Margaret Sanger with tags , , , , , , on December 28, 2014 by saynsumthn

Despite her ties to the Klan and to eugenics, the Center for Disease Control lists Margaret Sanger as some sort of heroine.

Sanger CDC

From the CDC, “Margaret Sanger.

“Sometimes social factors slow progress toward improving health more than lack of awareness or the absence of technology. No 20th century public health achievement demonstrates this more clearly than the struggle to provide women in the United States with safe and effective birth control. Margaret Sanger (September 14, 1879-September 6, 1966) risked scandal, danger, and imprisonment to challenge the legal and cultural obstacles that made controlling fertility difficult and illegal.

“Margaret Louise Higgins was born in Corning, New York, the sixth of 11 children. Her free-thinking father’s politics might have ignited her activism, but watching the process of her mother, aged 50 years, die after 18 pregnancies probably had an even deeper impact. Higgins was a nursing student in 1902 when she married architect William Sanger. Although weakened by bouts of tuberculosis, she bore three children between 1902 and 1910. The Sangers immersed themselves in the radical political and intellectual world of Greenwich Village in New York City. She worked as a visiting nurse in the city’s tenements and wrote about sex education and women’s health.

Sanger CDC PDF

“In 1914, Sanger’s articles in The Woman Radical brought her a federal indictment for violating federal postal obscenity laws, prompting her to flee to England. As soon as the ship left U.S. waters, she cabled a radical publisher in New Jersey to distribute 100,000 copies of her pamphlet, Family Limitation. Sanger remained exiled in Europe until late 1915; William Sanger had been arrested and jailed for distributing one copy of Family Limitation, and Margaret Sanger returned to face the charges against her. Personal tragedy intervened when the Sanger’s 5-year-old daughter died suddenly from pneumonia; public sentiments resulted in dismissal of the charges against Margaret Sanger.

“Rather than backing away from controversy, Sanger and her sister Ethel Byrne, also a nurse, opened the first birth control clinic in the United States, modeled after those Sanger had seen in Holland. On October 16, 1916, dozens of Jewish and Italian immigrant women from Brooklyn’s crowded Brownsville section lined up to receive counseling and birth control information. Nine days later police closed the clinic and arrested Sanger, Byrne, and the clinic’s interpreter. Byrne was tried and convicted first, and went on a hunger strike. Sanger was convicted and served 30 days in jail. Legal failure had brought victory, however. The publicity surrounding Sanger’s activities had made birth control a matter of public debate.

“After World War I, Sanger continued her U.S. leadership role, although during the 1920s and 1930s, she refocused her energy toward international birth control, traveling and lecturing throughout Asia and Europe. In 1952, she founded the International Planned Parenthood Federation and served as its first president until 1959. Sanger died in Tucson, Arizona, aged 87 years, a few months after the 1965 Supreme Court decision, Griswold vs. Connecticut, that made birth control legal for married couples, the culmination of events Sanger had started 50 years earlier.”

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 writings and Sanger published many of those in her publications.

Planned Parenthood was also steeped in eugenics and to this day their top award is called the Margaret Sanger Award, despite the fact that Sanger was an admitted Klan speaker.

Margaret Sanger and Autobiography

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 https://ia802607.us.archive.org/1/items/margaretsangerau1938sang/margaretsangerau1938sang.pdf)

One would think that at the very least the CDC would have read Margaret Sanger’s autobiography and her history and would have an accurate description of Sanger’s beliefs and motives. But, apparently the CDC is not interested in an accurate history of the Planned Parenthood founder.
