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