Yes, Planned Parenthood’s founder spoke to the Klan – but the photo is a fake

With the topic of America’s history in racism once again a focus in the news, a fake image of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger speaking to the Klu Klux Klan has been circulating online. While the image is not real, what is quite real is the fact that Sanger, a proponent of eugenics, spoke to a meeting of the women’s branch of KKK in 1926.

The event took place in Silver Lake, New Jersey, and Sanger described in it 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)

Sanger called that event “one of the weirdest experiences I had in lecturing.”

That being said, the image below, which purports to show Sanger giving that speech before her adoring Klan supporters is not authentic. The image was part of a blogger’s photo contest.

Photo of Margaret Sanger W/ KKK is fake

Sanger and Klan image was part of blog photo contest in 2005 — it is not authentic.

The Sanger/Klan fake was published by the “Margaret Sanger Blog Spot” which held an annual photo contest because, in the blog’s words, “The Big Abortion Industry still holds Margaret Sanger out as an icon. Artwork is one more important ways to promote the truth about Margaret Sanger.”

The blog’s instructions for the contest were to “commemorate Sanger at the Klan rally in unique artistic ways,” including “modern interpretations of Sanger speaking to the Klan.”

But Sanger’s views were so outrageous in and of themselves that there is no need to circulate inaccurate depictions, which could lead to attempts to discredit her meeting with the Klan altogether.

Sanger has a very controversial history as an enthusiastic proponent of eugenics and a member of the American Eugenics Society. This philosophy not only fed her work within the Planned Parenthood movement, but her lesser known advocacy of euthanasia as well. The organizations Sanger founded, such as The American Birth Control League (ABCL) and later, Planned Parenthood, also have ties to many eugenics proponents.

Clarence Cook Little

Clarence C. Little

One of those connections was a man by the name of Clarence Cook Little.

According to a biographical memoir published by the National Academy of Sciences, Little held various distinguished positions. He was the president of the University of Maine and of the University of Michigan, and he was the managing director of the American Society for the Control of Cancer.

He was named the director of The Jackson Laboratory and later accepted a position as scientific director of the Tobacco Industrial Research Committee. He was also a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the National Academy of Sciences.

Sadly, Little was also president and founding member of The American Eugenics Society, as well as a board member of Margaret Sanger’s American Birth Control League. He was also the Birth Control Federation President, and sat on the previously mentioned American Euthanasia Society board.

Little was also listed on the 1938 Committee for Planned Parenthood.

CC Little ties to Eugenics and Sanger’s ABCL

Little has since been denounced by some in modern society who have called for his name to be removed from the University of Michigan’s science building for his belief in eugenics. An op-ed penned by the daughter of an interracial couple and a student at the University of Michigan published last year by MTV.com shows the disdain for Little:

There is a building (and a bus stop) on the University of Michigan campus named for Clarence Cook (C.C.) Little. He was the University’s president in 1925, and an outspoken “scientific” racist and eugenicist, who believed that “inferior” races should undergo involuntary sterilization. I often sat at the bus stop bearing his name while I waited to go to class. Little would have hated that.

Despite the merit of these denouncements, few have expressed concern over Little’s ties to Planned Parenthood’s history.

Hilda Cornish

Another interesting eugenics connection to both Sanger and Planned Parenthood is a woman by the name of Hilda Kahlert Cornish. Hilda Cornish chaired the Arkansas Eugenics Association. According to a 1986 article in an Arkansas newspaper, Cornish received much of her counsel directly from Margaret Sanger. In fact, the Blytheville Courier Press notes that the sons of the two leaders were roommates at Yale University.

The documentary film on eugenics, Maafa21 (clipped below) details disturbing connections the Arkansas Eugenics Association had to Planned Parenthood:

The film states:

From its beginning, Planned Parenthood always had powerful ties to the American Eugenics community. In fact, in many places they were often one in the same.

For example, when the first birth control clinic was opened in Arkansas, it was operated by the Arkansas Eugenics Association and overseen by a woman named Hilda Cornish.

Later, the Arkansas Eugenics Association would become the Arkansas State Affiliate of Planned Parenthood and Cornish would be named its executive director.

Documents obtained by Live Action News confirm this fact.

A 1945 Planned Parenthood directory reveals that Mrs. Edward Cornish was the director of the Planned Parenthood Association of Arkansas. Cornish was active with the Democrat Party and married to banker Edward Cornish, according to Arkansas historians.

She is also listed as a member of the American Eugenics Society.

According to the Encyclopedia of Arkansas:

In the summer of 1930, [Cornish] met Margaret Sanger… The two developed a friendship maintained by correspondence and occasional meetings. During that summer, Cornish visited Sanger’s Clinical Research Bureau in New York, and she launched the Arkansas birth control movement later that same year.

At Cornish’s initiative, a group of physicians, business and religious leaders, and women active in civic work formed the Arkansas Eugenics Association (AEA)…. In early 1931, the association opened the Little Rock Birth Control Clinic in the basement of Baptist Hospital…. Cornish also worked with the National Committee on Federal Legislation for Birth Control.

The online historical site added that in 1942, The Arkansas Eugenics Association changed its name… to the Planned Parenthood Association of Arkansas.

Segregated Clinics

Authors of the bookHidden Histories of Women in the New South, noted that the “first report of the Arkansas Eugenics Association stated that the Little Rock clinic registered 161 White women during its first eleven months of service.”

The book concludes that Cornish was more aligned with promoting birth control than the national eugenics movement. (That being said, Sanger herself wanted to merge her publications with the national eugenics organization.)

The book‘s authors reveal that the clinic “directed its efforts towards poor women only,” yet they imply a prejudice against Blacks by writing that “African American women were not invited to the [Arkansas Eugenics] clinic from its start in 1931.”

www.AbortionProcedures.com click here for facts on abortion

The authors add that “until 1937, only white women actually had the opportunity to receive services” and the organization “held separate hours for white and African American women.” The book also notes that “most of [the American Birth Control League’s] clinics were segregated.” The ABCL later changed its name to Planned Parenthood.

Planned Parenthood’s beloved founder Margaret Sanger reached out to many people who saw Blacks as less than equal, and this includes the Klan and the Eugenics movement.

Today, many believe that Sanger’s racist ideologies have penetrated much of her work. And even without an image to document Sanger’s speech before the Klan, Planned Parenthood knows her history, as revealed in her own autobiography.

Instead of repudiating Sanger, taxpayer-funded Planned Parenthood honors her as a hero, naming their most prestigious award after her. It’s despicable.

Margaret Sanger rejected for $20 bill and praised by Hillary Clinton

Posted in 2016 Presidential Race, Hillary clinton, Margaret Sanger Award, Planned Parenthood Hillary Clinton, Planned Parenthood Margaret Sanger Award with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 14, 2015 by saynsumthn

While the racist founder of Planned Parenthood has been resoundingly rejected by voters to be placed on US currency, 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton once praised Margaret Sanger.

Margaret Sanger NO $20

Following outrage from Black leaders and pro-lifers nationwide, Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger was resoundingly defeated as a candidate for the $20.00 bill.

The group, Woman on 20’s initiated the campaign to replace Andrew Jackson with a woman on the currency.

Candidates were selected from a field of 30 through a “vigorous survey process involving more than a dozen women’s historians and academicians.”

Sanger

Originally among them was Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood whose beliefs in racism and eugenics were documented in the powerful Life Dynamics film, Maafa21.

This is what Sanger wrote in her autobiography, “I accepted an invitation to talk to the women’s branch of the Ku Klux Klan”

Margaret Sanger and Autobiography

Sanger continued, “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)

Margaret Sanger Autobiography spoke to Klan Planned Parenthood racism

Despite the award being named after a Klan speaker, in 2009, Hillary Clinton received Planned Parenthood’s top award, the Margaret Sanger Award.

Sanger was a also member of the American Eugenics Society which advocated the sterilization of those she deemed unfit and unworthy to procreate.

In 2009, at a Planned Parenthood Honors Gala in Houston, Texas – then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton accepted Planned Parenthood’s Margaret Sanger Award.

These were Hillary Clinton’s words of praise to Margaret Sanger:

    I admire Margaret Sanger enormously, her courage, her tenacity, her vision,” said Hillary Rodham Clinton, “I am really in awe of her, there are a lot of lessons we can learn from her life.”

More on that event here.

Margaret Sanger was a racist.

Margaret_Sanger1

She advocated eugenics. She supported the use of sterilization to rid the planet of the “unfit”.

Sanger admitted in her own autobiography that she was invited by the Klan to give them a speech.

Sanger KKK

Did I say one invite? Nope, according to Margaret Sanger she received a dozen invites by the KKK.

So….why would anyone and I do mean anyone accept an award named after a racist Klan speaker?

Hillary clintonMargaret Sanger

Good question….one that Hillary Rodham Clinton might want to answer.

In 2009, Hillary Clinton received Planned Parenthood’s Margaret Sanger Award.

PPFA Hillary Margaret Sanger Award

The announcement posted to the US Secretary of State website read, “Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) will present its highest honor, the PPFA Margaret Sanger Award, to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton at the PPFA awards gala in Houston, Texas on Friday, March 27. Secretary Clinton will receive this award for her unwavering support of women’s health and rights throughout her public service career.

Later in her speech, Hillary says, “Yet we know that Margaret Sanger’s work here in the United States and certainly across our globe is not done…”

Really?

Don’t let her accomplish Sanger’s vision in 2016.

Black abortion doc receives award named after Klan speaker Margaret Sanger

Posted in Abortionist, Abortionist Racist, Black abortionist, Margaret Sanger Award, Planned Parenthood Maggie Awards, Planned Parenthood Margaret Sanger Award, Planned Parenthood uses blacks, Willie Parker with tags , , , , , , , , , , on March 30, 2015 by saynsumthn

Dr. Willie Parker is no stranger to controversy. He is a circuit riding abortionist who, most notably works at the last remaining abortion clinic in Mississippi.

Willie J. Parker

Parker has made many outrageous statements claiming that he performs abortions because he is a “Christian” despite the long-held view that murdering a baby in the womb is the antithesis of Christ-like.

Parker recently claimed that NOT PROVIDING ABORTIONS was RACIST.

Yes, you heard me correctly.

PP 2-2-15-Dreamkeepers-Headers_doers

As a result of Parker’s unwavering stand for abortion, and his dedication to killing majority Black babies, Planned Parenthood recently “honored” the abortionist during Black History Month 2015 even placing abortionist Willie Parker on their list of Dream Keeper “Doers.”

But, the organization based on eugenics and racism did not stop there.

Planned Parenthood Gala March 19 2015

At their 2015 Gala, Planned Parenthood, which took place March 19th, Planned Parenthood gave the black abortionist their most prestigious award, The Margaret Sanger award.

Sanger was the founder of Planned Parenthood who admitted giving Klan speeches in her autobiography.

The Klan would be right in line with Sanger’s views on limiting the births of the so-called feeble minded and unfit. The eugenics groups she belonged to and placed on her board as well as published in her Birth Control Review, also held those same racist views.

Sanger Negro Project KKK

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.

Thanks to an upload on YouTube by Planned Parenthood Gala attendee B. Rae Perryman, you can see just how excited Dr. Willie Parker was in accepting the Margaret Sanger award from Planned Parenthood:

Parker has a history with the abortion giant having once worked for them as medical director for Planned Parenthood Metropolitan Washington.

He is fast becoming the Black face Planned Parenthood uses to lessen the effects of those who have documented the genocidal affects of abortion as well as the racist history.

Just as their founder Margaret Sanger vowed to use “Black Ministers” in her “Negro Project,” Planned Parenthood is doing the same with Parker.

During his speech, Parker thanked Planned Parenthood for the Margaret Sanger award and told the crowd that his mother shaped his need for recognition when “you act on behalf of others.”

It is in the spirit of my mother’s teaching- that- while I am humbled to receive this award- I see you as simply honoring me for what I am supposed to do,” Parker told the Planned Parenthood crowd.

Supposed to do? Kill babies is something you are obligated to do?

The abortionist, who dismembers babies including African American babies in the womb, quoted holocaust survivor, Elie Wiesel who said, “Our lives are not our own – they belong to those who desperately need us.”

Newflash abortionist Parker:

The unborn baby desperately needs his/her mother and your knife guarantees they will not have the life granted them by their Creator.

Dr. Willie Parker should be ashamed of himself – but he isn’t.

Sadly, like others who betrayed their race or participated in the slaughter humans, Parker is proud.
