Life News ^ | 4/8/12 | Steven Ertelt

Posted on 04/09/2012 11:28:00 AM PDT by Nachum

Following the death of journalist and reporter Mike Wallace, an interview he conducted with Planned Parenthood founder and eugenicist Margaret Sanger made the rounds across the Internet over the weekend.

Below are clips from the interview Margaret Sanger gave to Mike Wallace in 1957. During the interview, the full version of which can be seen here, Sanger talks to Wallace about why she became an advocate for birth control, abortion, stopping so-called overpopulation, and talks about the Catholic Church, and morality.

What is sobering is that Sanger’s opinion have now become the conventional wisdom. If one were to ask Barbara Bush many of the same questions she would be totally in accord with Sanger. Fact is that her husband probably agreed even after he proclaimed his “conversion “ to pro-life. This has become, in fact, elite opinion. Had become elite opinion by 1973 when the court embedded it in the constitution. Prolifers have been combating the views of the national elite, including those who call themselves Republican. No wonder that Republican leaders only given lip service to pro-life measures while Democrats thrown themselves on their swords for the cause of abortion.

In her book The Pivot of Civilization, Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger wrote that unless something was done to stop them, those living in the slums (blacks, Hispanics, and Jews) would eventually leave the boundaries of their neighborhoods and mix with the better parts of society (whites). Their inferior genes, she argued, would then infect the rest of us. Therefore, she suggested we cease all charitable giving to the inner-city poor, segregate these “morons, misfits, and maladjusted,” sterilize these “genetically inferior races,” and begin a process of eliminating such “human weeds.”

“And her organization, Planned Parenthood, has done just that. In the 1980s, the organization began intentionally targeting black inner-city neighborhoods for their clinics. Author George Grant pointed out that, ‘of the more than 100 school-based clinics that have opened nationwide in the [1980s]…all have been at black, minority, or ethnic schools.’ By 1991, Planned Parenthood was reporting that 43 percent of all its abortions were performed on minorities – a time when the minorities accounted for only 19 percent of the total population. And in a comparative analysis between the 2000 U.S. Census data and the location of Planned Parenthood clinics, Cybercast News Service concluded, ‘The results appear to bolster the charge that the organization targets black communities.’

“Sanger did not support abortion”

Win the Future?!

I know the usual knee-jerk defense of Sanger is to say that she did not support geneocide, and that her comment about not wanting blacks to understand her stance on abortion was allegedly “taken out of context”, but this is the first time I’ve heard that she did not support abortion.

Can you please support your statement further?

“Sanger did not support abortion and does not in this interview.”

Bull$hit. Margaret Sanger promoted abortion as a means of getting rid of blacks. She was a eugenicist just like her close friend Charles Goethe and she looked at reducing the ‘Negro’ population with the same amount of emotion as some people today talk about reducing populations of pigeons and deer.

Here, educate yourself and stop posting tripe that’ll get you a well-deserved zot; http://www.dianedew.com/sanger.htm

My mother joined the Pro-Life battle very early on. Even before Roe v. Wade when it was largely being fought on the state level. And she was quite adamant in telling us that quite a few Rockefeller Republicans out there were fully on-board with this. “Abort, Don’t Support” was their line of thinking.

At the time she also encountered quite a few Pro-Life Democrats. Those have largely disappeared.

This is what Wikipedia says about her views on abortion, for what it’s worth. The statements they quote make it sound like she opposed it mostly. Perhaps she had an “evolving” position on it? I would have to assume that when she founded Planned Parenthood, abortion was illegal so she probably wasn’t openly advocating for it. I don’t know if PP would’ve been facilitating “back alley” abortions at that time or not.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Margaret_Sanger

Abortion

Sanger’s family planning advocacy always focused on contraception, rather than abortion.[95][note 10] It was not until the mid 1960s, after Sanger’s death, that the reproductive rights movement expanded its scope to include abortion rights as well as contraception.[note 11] Sanger was opposed to abortions, both because they were dangerous for the mother, and because she believed that life should not be terminated after conception. In her book Woman and the New Race, she wrote, “while there are cases where even the law recognizes an abortion as justifiable if recommended by a physician, I assert that the hundreds of thousands of abortions performed in America each year are a disgrace to civilization.”[98]

Historian Rodger Streitmatter concluded that Sanger’s opposition to abortion stemmed from concerns for the dangers to the mother, rather than moral concerns.[99] However, in her 1938 autobiography, Sanger noted that her opposition to abortion was based on the taking of life: “[In 1916] we explained what contraception was; that abortion was the wrong way no matter how early it was performed it was taking life; that contraception was the better way, the safer way — it took a little time, a little trouble, but was well worth while in the long run, because life had not yet begun.”[100] And in her book Family Limitation, Sanger wrote that “no one can doubt that there are times when an abortion is justifiable but they will become unnecessary when care is taken to prevent conception. This is the only cure for abortions.”[101]

She also stumbled over Wallace’s curveball: “Is murder a sin?”

The hesitation was noticeable. Perhaps she anticipated the next logical question.

Mike should have said, “OK, let’s flip all the cards*, Are you the devil?”

*”What’s My Line” reference.

A quote from Sanger, found at:
http://www.thecatholicthing.org/columns/2011/margaret-sanger-abortion-is-dangerous-and-vicious.html
.
“The real alternative to birth control is abortion,” wrote Dean Inge, [Dean of St. Paul’s Cathedral, London]. It is an alternative that I cannot too strongly condemn. Although abortion may be resorted to in order to save the life of the mother, the practice of it merely for limitation of offspring is dangerous and vicious. [Emphasis added] I bring up the subject here only because some ill-informed persons have the notion that when we speak of birth control we include abortion as a method. We certainly do not. Abortion destroys the already fertilized ovum or the embryo; contraception, as I have carefully explained, prevents the fertilizing of the ovum by keeping the male cells away. Thus it prevents the beginning of life. [Source: Margaret Sanger, “Birth Control Advances: A Reply to the Pope,” 1931, Margaret Sanger Papers, Sophia Smith Collection, Smith College MSM S71-243.]
.
The fact remains that, even though Sanger may have not embraced abortion on demand, she was an early eugenicist and advocate of ‘birth control— which now, as often as not, includes abortifacients. The organization she founded and which we are now dealing with, is her legacy.

What every body is totally elliminating from the life of Margaret Sanger is her complete belief in Eugenics. Does everyone understand what “EUGENICS” mean? This is “EUGENICS” at it’s core. Humans must elliminate the births of all children that are not up to what they, the Eugenics crowd, deem acceptible. Does everyone understand what this means? It means that the government will be the final judge on who are allowed to be born and survive, and who will be just thrown away ie; “aborted”, in order that the correct type of humans, according to the government, can live. Hitler and the NAZIs took all of this to heart. In other words, humans will be treated like cattle, and only the good ones will survive

Eugenics is the “applied science or the bio-social movement which advocates the use of practices aimed at improving the genetic composition of a population”. Eugenics seeks to achieve its goals through the manipulation (including by force) of human populations.

Eugenics was very popular in the early 20th century and is a form of applied “social Darwinism” wherein certain superior races are encouraged to breed and replace inferior races. Inferior races are depopulated by various means including birth control, voluntary sterilization, contraception, and abortion.

Eugenics was supported by a wide variety of prominent people, including Margaret H. G. Wells, Theodore Roosevelt, George Bernard Shaw, John Maynard Keynes, John Harvey Kellogg, Linus Pauling, and Sidney Webb. Many members of the American Progressive Movement supported eugenics, seduced by its scientific trappings and its promise of a quick end to social ills.

Eugenics most infamous proponent and practitioner was Adolf Hitler. His book, Mein Kampf, argued for eugenics. Once in power, his Nazi Party passed legislation for the sterilization of “defectives” and social “undesirables”. This was later expanded to cover whole races of “inferiors” to the Aryan model.

The excesses of the Nazis’ racial theories and practices during World War 2 (12 million people slaughtered in the Holocaust) caused supporters of eugenics to re-brand themselves. Margret Sanger was a re-branded eugenics disciple who became the champion of birth control and was a founder of Planned Parenthood.

Sanger was a eugenicist and a racist but she did not advocate abortion. I cannot ‘support the statement’ because she never wrote or spoke in favor of abortion and you cannot prove a negative. It is up to people making the claim to prove where she advocated abortion.

I’ve done quite a bit of research on the subject and have never read a single thing she has written or spoken where she says that she supports abortion. In fact, she called the practice abomidable.

Even Planned Parenthood doesn’t want people to know that she never advocated for abortion. It embarrasses them that she was opposed to it.

I have no idea what your attitude is about.
I do not agree with Sanger’s point of view but it does the pro-Life side favor to make up falshoods about a person. She was bad enough without making up things about her that she never supported.

Your first quote is out of context where she is speaking in the voice of poor immigrant families who had espoused that view to her. She did not agree with it, she was advocating for contraception to avoid that sentiment being carried out.

Is this “bad enough”? You are not looking at her full biography closely enough.

For what purpose?

“Birth control appeals to the advanced radical because it is calculated to undermine the authority of the Christian churches. I look forward to seeing humanity free someday of the tyranny of Christianity no less than Capitalism.”- Margaret Sanger

Margaret Sanger was a member of the Eugenics Society of Britain and also the American Eugenics Society. These societies were founded and run by famous evolutionists (Charles Darwin's son Leonard, Julian Huxley, Henry Osborn, etc.) Sanger was a eugenist. See here for more background: Darwinism and Eugenics
“Many prominent eugenicists, such as Ernst Rudin, close friend and advisor to Sanger and director of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Psychiatry in Munich, filled the pages of her various publications with their radical racist ideology. She worked closely with almost every leading eugenicist of her time, including Harry Laughlin and Lothrop Stoddard, writer of the fascist book The Rising Tide of Color Against White World Supremacy. Her close ties with these men, especially some Nazi eugenicists, indicated that she, like much of the mainstream eugenics movement, was supportive of the German eugenics programs — a fact that she and her publicists would later deny.” — P. Jalsevac, The Inherent Racism of Population Control, LifeSite, 2004.

Sanger claimed that the availability of birth control would make abortion rare. That has to do, I think, with the reverse side of eugenics, which was that the “”upper classes,”ought to have children.” The Nazis taught the same thing. The superior breeds should not kill their young.

Abortion was relatively rare in her time.
However in her writings she claims that infanticide was being practiced in urban poor immigrant families (she was a nurse and social worker among these populations).

She did think that contraception would cure a whole host of social ills ... poverty, vagrancy, illiteracy, etc. Turns out she was wrong from what we know today, but in her day it seemed a reasonable assumption.

I have looked at her biography and writings and speeches very closely having researched Sanger and other eugenicists while in college.

She believed in eugenics for the same reason other people of her day did. They felt it would make the human race stronger to weed out the ‘unfit’. Eugenics was very popular in the first half of the 20th Century. Many prominent people espoused eugenics views, even U.S. Presidents
