Sanger and Eugenics?Edit

"Colored people are like weeds and are to be exterminated". -- Margaret Sanger. "We do not want word to get 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 the more rebellious members" --Margaret Sanger

Margaret Sanger may have been the woman to put "Planned Parenthood" into effect; however, she did it with the thoughts of exterminating an entire culture of people. She wanted to be rid of the black race and when it was being shown how much of a bigot she truely was, she went ahead and hired an African-American Social worker to help open a clinic in the Bronx of New York. Where the Media made her look like a hero, this step on helped to perpetuate her desire to extinquinsh the black population. An abortion clinic run by a black and located in an area largely populate by blacks was exactly what this woman wanted.

Margaret Sanger openly supported the Klu Klux Klan. "Always, to me any aroused group was a good group and therefore I accepted an invitation to talk to the women's branch of the Klu Klux Klan." --Margaret Sanger

So go ahead and erect a statue in her honor, or place her bust in one of the baby-killing clinics, but also know 'why' she created these clinics. They weren't created to "help women". They were created to kill the negro population and you are treating her like she's a hero. In fact, she's just the opposite.

The first quote is fake. The second is a misquote. You will find both listed here under Misattributed.
Contrary to your demonizing rhetoric, there is no genuine evidence that Margaret Sanger harbored eliminationist desires. She did recount speaking about birth control at a Ku Klux Klan meeting in her autobiography, though from her account, she clearly was not a member. We also already list that quote on this page.
And this page is here to talk about improvements to this page of quotations, not a forum about abortion. In the future, please end your Talk page comments with ~~~~ to sign and date your posts. ~ Robin Lionheart (talk) 00:29, 8 December 2013 (UTC)


  • Woman must not accept; she must challenge. She must not be awed by that which has been built up around her; she must reverence that woman in her which struggles for expression.
  • Anyone, no matter how ignorant, how diseased mentally or physically, how lacking in all knowledge of children, seemed to consider he or she had the right to become a parent.
  • 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.
