Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, has finally been disavowed by "cancel culture." Planned Parenthood of Greater New York (PPGNY) is finally removing Margaret Sanger’s name from its Manhattan clinic after decades of choosing to overlook the organization’s white supremacist roots.
Sanger thought Hitler's idea of a Master Race was brilliant. "More from the fit, less from the unfit." Whom did she consider unfit? The poor, physically or mentally disabled, and blacks. Her written opinion on "The Negro Project":
“We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the [black] population and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to their more rebellious members.” (Gordon, Woman’s Body Woman’s Right, p.332).
A mother of nine children, Sanger saw impoverished women having baby-after-baby and thought it was the reason they were poor. In 1918, she called for the “poverty-stricken classes” to be forcibly sterilized if they would not limit their reproduction voluntarily, stating, “All of our problems are the result of overbreeding among the working class.”
Any other person who had one-tenth as much evidence of racism would have been cancelled a long time ago. Not so the founder of the world's largest abortion provider. Hillary Clinton, the Democratic Party's Presidential nominee in 2016 gushed, "I admire Margaret Sanger enormously, her courage, her tenacity, her vision ... 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."
Planned Parenthood may have symbolically removed Margaret Sanger from their NYC clinic, but her eugenics objectives will still linger: Research by Protecting Black Life found that 79 percent of Planned Parenthood surgical abortion facilities are located within walking distance of minority neighborhoods.
