FOOD FOR THOUGHT—MARGARET SANGER, Founder of Planned Parenthood

MARGARET SANGER, Founder of Planned Parenthood

Like many eugenicists of her day, Margaret Sanger believed that some races (namely the intelligent, white classes) were more fit to produce children than other races. Using Darwinian reasoning, Sanger believed there was a clear connection between race and levels of intelligence. In 1912, she wrote: “The lower down in the scale of human development we go the less sexual control we find. It is said that the aboriginal Australian, the lowest known species of the human family, just a step higher than the chimpanzee in brain development, has so little sexual control that police authority alone prevents him from obtaining sexual satisfaction on the streets.” In addition to others for whom she had little use, Sanger had great disdain in her heart for the black race. According to writer Mary Kizior, Margaret Sanger not only believed that 85 percent of the U.S. population was morons and criminals unfit to have children, but she practiced what she believed. We’re talking about a woman so racist that she initiated the Negro Project, an effort to sterilize, segregate, or remove undesirable African Americans from society. Sanger believed in taxpayer funded sterilization for persons she considered “unfit to be parents.” Sanger and the legacy Planned Parenthood carries on to this very day are so treacherous that Planned Parenthood should be exposed for their true agenda.

In Sanger’s mind black women, because of the intense poverty and disadvantages of the South, were more likely to produce second-rate children – and lots of them. There is no question that Margaret Sanger targeted the African American community and tried to get its members to reduce the number of children per family. Her first success with the black community came when she opened a birth control clinic in Harlem, a predominantly black neighborhood in New York, in 1923. To keep the clinic from failing, she hired African American doctors, nurses, and an all-black advisory council to help her clients feel more at ease – and more inclined to listen to her birth control propaganda. Sanger and her staff went to great lengths to calm the fears of their clients – even changing the name of the clinic from “Research Bureau” to “Birth Control Research Bureau” so the clients would not think that research was being conducted on them, a common fear among black women.

In 1939, Sanger spearheaded Planned Parenthood’s “Negro Project,”, an initiative to target African American communities with birth control education, especially in the South, so that they would have smaller families.

“The question of race betterment is one of immediate concern, and I am glad to say that the United States Government has already taken certain steps to control the equality of our population through drastic immigration laws… But while we close our gates to the so-called “undesirables” from other countries, we make no effort attempt to discourage or cut down the rapid multiplication of the unfit and undesirable at home… These types are being multiplied with break-neck rapidity and increasing far out of proportion to the normal and intelligent classes.”

Margaret Sanger’s published speech in The Birth Control Review, October !926.

 

“The mass of Negros, particularly in the South, still breed carelessly and disastrously, with the result that the increase among Negros, even more than among whites, is from that portion of the population least intelligent and fit, and least able to rear their children properly.”

Margaret Sanger quoting W.E.B. DuBois, a black sociology professor.

 

Together with Dr. Clarence Gamble, of the manufacturer Procter and Gamble, Sanger and her staff developed a complex plan to sell her ideas about birth control to the black community. Making headway in the tight-knit black community was no easy task. In a letter to Dr. Gamble, a fellow eugenicist, Sanger express her concern about how to implement the project: “The minister’s work is also important and also he should be trained, perhaps by the Federation as to our ideals and the goal that we hope to reach. 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.”

Birth control supporters will say that letter is taken out of context – that Margaret Sanger meant to help African Americans rise above poverty and destitution. But as has always been the case among proponents of Planned Parenthood’s philosophy, the truth is elusive. Indeed, in this case, the record is crystal clear when it comes to Sanger and her attitude towards blacks. To convince the black community to accept birth control, Sanger first had to get the black religious community on board. In the Negro Project’s proposal, Sanger specifically spells out the need for religious appeal in order to make inroads in the black community. The Birth Control Federation of America, later known as Planned Parenthood, set up a National Negro Advisory Council with some of the most prominent African American leaders of the day, including religious leaders like Bishop David Sims and Reverend Adam Clayton Powell. With their help, Sanger earned the support of the black churches and even got them to preach the message from the pulpit.

Planned Parenthood still targets the African American community today, but this time with abortion services. In 2012, Life Issues Institute (LII) conducted a research study on Planned Parenthood and the black community. Using census data from 2010, it analyzed the location of Planned Parenthood clinics throughout the Country and their proximity to predominantly black neighborhoods. LII found that “102 out of 165, or 62% of the Planned Parenthood abortion facilities are located in areas with relatively high African American populations, or in targeted neighborhoods.”

President Trump is labeled a raciest because he is carrying out the oath he took to uphold the immigration laws. There is never a word spoken by the left about Margaret Sanger, a devout racist whose goal it was to eliminate the black race, concerning her racist views.
