Margarat Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, once stated that her whole life was devoted to birth control. I cannot imagine anyone caring that much about keeping babies from being born, but evidently this was her mission in life. Perhaps she felt that there would be less poverty if families were kept smaller , but it’s more likely that she did not believe all persons deserve to have the opportunity to live. I read that her Mother had 18 pregnancies…..maybe this had an influence on her thinking. Personally, I would bet that she did not believe that man was created in the image of God and even though she used to be a Catholic, she probably did not believe in a Creator at all. My guess would be that she was a believer in evolution and the theories of Charles Darwin. How else could she have come to the conclusions that she did?
Margarat Sanger has been praised by some, and held in high regard amongst women’s groups and liberal politicians. Considering how Ms. Sanger encouraged abortions especially in Black communities, and knowing her connections with the KKK, I find it curious that so many black pastors and politicians sing her praises. In 1966 the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. remarked about Sanger: ‘There is a striking kinship between our movement and Margaret Sanger’s early efforts. . . . Our sure beginning in the struggle for equality by nonviolent direct action may not have been so resolute without the tradition established by Margaret Sanger and people like her.”
Our current Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton is a great admirer of Ms. Sanger and compared her to Thomas Jefferson, expressing that she was in “awe” of her. Hillary states, “Now, I have to tell you that it was a great privilege when I was told that I would receive this award. (Margarat Sanger award) I admire Margaret Sanger enormously, her courage, her tenacity, her vision. Another of my great friends, Ellen Chesler, is here, who wrote a magnificent biography of Margaret Sanger called Woman of Valor. And when I think about what she did all those years ago in Brooklyn, taking on archetypes, taking on attitudes and accusations flowing from all directions, I am really in awe of her.”
I have not read a whole lot about Ms. Sanger, but I can see the fruit of her labors in our country and around the world today. Since 1973, there have been 49,551,793 abortions in the United States. I sometimes ponder about these souls that might have been born, and wonder how many artists, scientists, inventors and musicians would there have been. How many Christian homeschool Moms and Dads did we abort? I feel sad and ashamed to be living in a culture that seems to think of children are a burden. Even our President just does not “get-it.” While addressing a Pennsylvania audience regarding his daughters, he pronounced, “I am going to teach them first of all about values and morals, but it they make a mistake, I don’t want them punished with a baby.” How very sad that he would rather kill a baby than inconvenience his daughters and family. With all of his fortune he could even hire a full time nanny to care for the child. But that would punish his daughters……it would be more convenient to abort his grandbabies I guess.
I hope you will benefit from reading the following quotes from Margarat Sanger. Her vision is alive and well even today and being promoted and taught through Planned Parenthood, the government schools, our universities, Hollywood, progressives in our government, and the socialist and communist groups right here in our America. May the Lord forgive us. ~Anne
The most merciful thing that a large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.”

“Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race.”

“We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population. and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”
“Organized charity itself is the symptom of a malignant social disease. Those vast, complex, interrelated organizations aiming to control and to diminish the spread of misery and destitution and all the menacing evils that spring out of this sinisterly fertile soil, are the surest sign that our civilization has bred, is breeding and perpetuating constantly increasing numbers of defectives, delinquents and dependents…….to breed out of the race the scourges of transmissible disease, mental defect, poverty, lawlessness, crime … since these classes would be decreasing in number instead of breeding like weeds….such a plan would … reduce the birthrate among the diseased, the sickly, the poverty stricken and anti-social classes, elements unable to provide for themselves, and the burden of which we are all forced to carry”
“The minister’s work is also important and he should be trained, perhaps by the Federation as to our ideals and the goal that we hope to reach. We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members”
“Women of the working class, especially wage workers, should not have more than two children at most. The average working man can support no more and and the average working woman can take care of no more in decent fashion.”
“We are failing to segregate morons who are increasing and multiplying . . . a dead weight of human waste . . .an ever-increasing spawning class of human beings who never should have been born at all.”
“Every feeble-minded girl or woman of this hereditary type should be segregated during the reproductive period. Otherwise, she is almost certain to bear imbecile children … we prefer the policy of immediate sterilization, of making sure that parenthood is absolutely prohibited to the feeble minded.”
“Couples should be required to submit applications to have a child”
More children from the fit, less from the unfit — that is the chief aim of birth control.”
We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population”
