"While she decries it, Baker notes that Sanger's support of eugenics was in accordance with the day's leading scientists."
Yeah the day's leading scientists who went on to do their horrific work in Nazi Germany.
“pregnant 18 times during her 30-year marriage”
It’s not a clown car.
My brother and his “wife” have had 5 children. They range in age from 3 to 16. Of the oldest 4 not ONE wants children when they grow up. I found that kind of wierd.
Margaret Sanger did the work of Satan
What an ironic name she had, given the proliferation of abortion.
Sanger’s mother had 18 kids. I wonder which ones she would have wished to abort.
Her mother died young so Sanger decided it was from having too many kids and went off to save others from the terrible fate of Childbirth./s/
Unable to recognize Evil, progressives embrace it.
Do I really need sarcasm tags?
I’m a bit too busy to scan the entire SF article. However, given the source, I shall assume that none of Ms Sanger’s racism was revealed in the article. If I’m not mistaken, she pushed birth control as a means of controlling the “inferior” races, did she not?
And of course, liberals, in their quest to keep their lies alive, lie by omission each and every day.
Title should read: Margaret Sanger A Life of Passion and a Passion for Death!
The highest award a Dem can receive is the Margaret Sanger award.
Pray for America
spare us from the chronicles of a witch
Kind of like global warming. Bad things can happen when you detach your work in science from morality.
I showed it to a young lady in my office who is of course pro abort and asked her what she thought. She was speechless and unwilling to confront her world-view. What is the difference between Sanger and Hitler I asked?
Sanger is worshiped in our schools, that says something.
God will not be mocked, his retribution is coming.
War Against the Weak - Review
How American corporate philanthropies launched a national campaign of ethnic cleansing in the United States, helped found and fund the Nazi eugenics of Hitler and Mengele and then created the modern movement of human genetics.
In the first three decades of the 20th Century, American corporate philanthropy combined with prestigious academic fraud to create the pseudoscience eugenics that institutionalized race politics as national policy. The goal: create a superior, white, Nordic race and obliterate the viability of everyone else.
By identifying so-called defective family trees and subjecting them to legislated segregation and sterilization programs. The victims: poor people, brown-haired white people, African Americans, immigrants, Indians, Eastern European Jews, the infirm and really anyone classified outside the superior genetic lines drawn up by American raceologists. The main culprits were the Carnegie Institution, the Rockefeller Foundation and the Harriman railroad fortune, in league with Americas most respected scientists hailing from such prestigious universities as Harvard, Yale and Princeton, operating out of a complex at Cold Spring Harbor on Long Island. The eugenic network worked in tandem with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the State Department and numerous state governmental bodies and legislatures throughout the country, and even the U.S. Supreme Court. They were all bent on breeding a eugenically superior race, just as agronomists would breed better strains of corn. The plan was to wipe away the reproductive capability of the weak and inferior.
Ultimately, 60,000 Americans were corrosively sterilized legally and extra-legally. Many never discovered the truth until decades later. Those who actively supported eugenics include Americas most progressive figures: Woodrow Wilson, Margaret Sanger and Oliver Wendell Holmes.
American eugenic crusades proliferated into a worldwide campaign, and in the 1920s came to the attention of Adolf Hitler. Under the Nazis, American eugenic principles were applied without restraint, careening out of control into the Reichs infamous genocide. During the pre-War years, American eugenicists openly supported Germanys program. The Rockefeller Foundation financed the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute and the work of its central racial scientists. Once WWII began, Nazi eugenics turned from mass sterilization and euthanasia to genocidal murder. One of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute doctors in the program financed by the Rockefeller Foundation was Josef Mengele who continued his research in Auschwitz, making daily eugenic reports on twins. After the world recoiled from Nazi atrocities, the American eugenics movement its institutions and leading scientists renamed and regrouped under the banner of an enlightened science called human genetics.

The sob story in the article is that Sanger was there when Sadie Sachs died from a botched abortion. Of course it was a tragedy - but like a typical liberal, Sanger had the problem correct, but the solution completely wrong.
The focus of reform should have been support for the women who were pregnant - not encouraging a death sentence for their preborn children. The churches of the day (and today as well) were perfectly capable of addressing this type of scenario with expanded charitable missions. Look at Father Baker in Buffalo, New York as an example of the successful handling of these issues. The corporal works of mercy are required by Christians -
These issues can be addressed without abortion and keeping the government out of it!
As far as birth control, it encourages abortion because it leads to promiscuity - and for married couples, natural ways of spacing children are available and could easily be promoted.
She was a racist, a eugenicist, an anti-cleric and a left wing radical [IWW]. You don’t need a book to describe Margaret Sanger. Only took about fourteen words and an abbreviation.
I suppose they left out the time Sanger spoke at a Klan rally.
Can’t be “hot” with a baby pushing your belly out, so kill the baby. If your sense of self-worth is based on how “hot” you look, you’re going to have a tough life.
