The Real Margaret Sanger – Founder of
Like Adolf Hitler, Margaret Sanger was quoted and said many times, she dreamed of a perfect race. She often called planned parenthood the “negro project”.
In the beginning and even now, most of the planned parenthood clinics were and are located in low income or poverty neighborhoods.
Although Sanger’s involvement in eugenics and radical politics is well documented, many people today are attempting to whitewash her past eugenics involvement. Her ‘hagiographers, and her most devoted followers in the abortion rights movement, deny and gloss over the eugenicist nature of her program.
Why do black people and people on the “left” praise this woman so much?
Here are a few quotes by Margaret Sanger. These quotes are from articles, reports and books written by the woman herself, Margaret Sanger.
“The most merciful thing that a large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.”

On the purpose of birth control:
The purpose in promoting birth control was “to create a race of thoroughbreds,” she wrote in the Birth Control Review, Nov. 1921 (p. 2)
On the rights of the handicapped and mentally ill, and racial minorities:
“More children from the fit, less from the unfit — that is the chief aim of birth control.” Birth Control Review, May 1919, p. 12
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
