    Con Fact Check: Sanger - Planned Parenthood Claims

    Why do conservatives keep repeating falsehoods? Is it that they are prone to propaganda?

    Sanger is a racist pure and simple. And Planned Parenthood is an evil organization that targets blacks even today they just do it in ways that the black community can't see.


    Sanger espoused the thinking of eugenicists -- similar to Darwin's "survival of the fittest" -- but related the concept to human society, saying the genetic makeup of the poor, and minorities, for example, was inferior. Pivot of Civilization, by Margaret Sanger, 1922, p. 80

    "The most merciful thing that a large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it."*Margaret Sanger, Women and the New Race*(Eugenics Publ. Co., 1920, 1923)

    “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 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.”
    Margaret Sanger’s December 19, 1939 letter to Dr. Clarence Gamble, 255 Adams Street, Milton, Massachusetts


    "To give certain dysgenic groups in our population their choice of segregation [concentration camps] or sterilization".....Margaret Sanger in April 1932 ("A Plan For Peace", Birth Control Review)

    Sanger said, “Keep the doors of immigration closed to the entrance of certain aliens whose condition is known to be detrimental to the stamina of the race, such as feebleminded, idiots, morons, insane, syphilitic, epileptic, criminal, professional prostitutes, and others in this class barred by the immigration laws of 1924.


    Apply a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is already tainted or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to offspring.”
    Sanger, “A Plan For Peace”, Birth Control Review, April 1932, p. 106

    “It is a vicious cycle; ignorance breeds poverty and poverty breeds ignorance. There is only one cure for both, and that is to stop breeding these things. Stop bringing to birth children whose inheritance cannot be one of health or intelligence. Stop bringing into the world children whose parents cannot provide for them. Herein lies the key of civilization. For upon the foundation of an enlightened and voluntary motherhood shall a future civilization emerge.”
    Sanger, What Every Boy and Girl Should Know, 1915, p. 140


    Margaret Sanger appointed Lothrop Stoddard as a board member of the Birth Control League (the forerunner of Planned Parenthood). What did Stoddard think about Nazi eugenics? Author Stefan Kuhl writes (5):

    When the Nazis came to power, argued Stoddard, they started to increase "both the size and the quality of the population." They coupled initiatives designed to encourage "sound" citizens to reproduce with a "drastic curb of the defective elements." (7) Stoddard personally witnessed how the Nazis were "weeding out the worst strains in the Germanic stock in a scientific and truly humanitarian way."

    Sanger influenced Hitler….who very much admired her. Does that tell you anything?

    Sanger though blacks were bad stock, inferior and like the people who surrounded her who wrote on this….they were weeds. Get rid of the weeds…by sterilizing and segregating blacks and undesirables who should not be having children.

    because they think if they say the same thing over and over again it becomes the truth.

    which statistic is meaningless without looking at the reasons for it. maybe the white women were more fundie by percentage and don't believe in reproductive choice.

    but pretending planned parenthood is somehow racist is pretty pathetic.

    I didn't say they were. Just thought it was an interesting statistic.
