Margaret Sanger Named One of 20 Most Influential Americans Ever
Life News ^ | 7/27/12 | Susan Michelle Tyrrell

Influence is neutral. By itself it means having a profound effect on something, but that something can be good or bad. Therefore, I can’t argue with Time Magazine’s list of The 20 Most Influential Americans of All Time that happens to include the person who has most influenced the destruction of humanity, Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger.

I have to agree with Time’s assessment that she is one of the most influential Americans of all time because her negative influence has been responsible for the deaths of millions, far exceeding that of Hitler’s influence in World War II, whom we usually cite as an example of a single person directly responsible for millions of deaths.

Defined as “the trailblazers, visionaries and cultural ambassadors who defined a nation,” the majority of the list includes these whom we would consider pictures of the very heart of the nation, such as inventors as Henry Ford and Alexander Graham Bell and leaders such as Martin Luther King, Jr. and Abraham Lincoln.

Sadly, though, Sanger is part of the heart of America. She has influenced the culture in her lifetime in ways some could only imagine doing. Planned Parenthood. Famous feminist Gloria Steinem penned the piece for Time, saying:

Contraceptive information was suppressed by clergy-influenced, physician-accepted laws. Yet the educated had access to such information and products. This injustice inspired Sanger to defy church and state. In a series of articles called “What Every Girl Should Know,” then in her own newspaper The Woman Rebel and through local clinics that dispensed woman-controlled forms of birth control (a phrase she coined), she put information and power into the hands of women. Her brave and joyous life included fulfilling work, three children, two husbands, many lovers and a large network of friends and colleagues. Indeed, she lived as if she and everyone else had the right to control her or his own life. By word and deed, she pioneered the most radical, humane and transforming political movement of the 20th and 21st centuries.

Are you catching that? Sanger put control in women’s hands—to the point that a woman now controls if another human being lives or dies—and she is being regarded as one of the most influential Americans to have ever lived. However, we can’t really argue with that assessment, can we?

We can, however, argue with Steinem’s comments that she pioneered humane movements. What kind of society calls a movement humane which destroyed its young for the sake of control?

Ours does.

We have reaped what we have sown. As a nation we have expanded abortive birth control, expanded abortion, allowed late-term abortions, and made a woman’s right to choose (to kill) a pillar of American society.

The problem here isn’t with Time Magazine but with us. We’ve become a culture that is driven by convenience and timing. If it doesn’t fit in our schedule as we like it, we abort it. It’s a mindset of false choice that dives our culture so when a woman gets pregnant, that became another decision to weigh in the balance instead do a life to consider for its value.

Was Sanger one of the most influential American’s of all time? Ask 4000 babies a day if they think she influenced them?

Except they can’t answer because her work helped lead to their destruction.

Now the question is whether we will become the voices that rise up in this wilderness and change that culture or be silent and leave the name of the abortion pioneer as a prime figure in American history.

What a tragic list Time offers us. Side by side we see the man who recognized slaves were fully human, Abraham Lincoln, with the woman who helped devalue babies in the womb as not being fully human. We are responsible for this continuum.

Will we help cut off the circle of destruction or let it reign?

Over ONE BILLION deaths in the past century can be directly attributed to Sanger. Margaret Sanger is responsible for more deaths than all of the wars, acts of genocide, epidemics, famines and natural disasters in the history of the world combined.

Sadly, they’re right. We see her ‘influence’ in the over 50 million children who have been denied their right to life, through abortion since 1973. We also see it in the explosion of sexually transmitted diseases because of uninhibited sexual activity since the promotion of the oral contraceptive and its push by the feminist movement.

The President’s pro-abortion stance plays right into Sangers’ eugenic plan.

We can also see her negative influence in our economic condition right now, as pension funds and social security don’t have the necessary young workers paying into them to pay for the demographic bubble of the baby boomers.

Exactly! Ponzi schemes like Social Security and Medicare are viable as long as they have a predictably expanding population, Sanger made that impossible.

Well, if Margaret Sanger is to be considered one of the 20 most influential Americans of all time, can we consider Adolph Hitler one of the 20 most influential Germans of all time?

If “negative” and “anti-life” are the measure, then xsurely, she was a highly influencial person. For the 40 million or so who were never born, and those who would have been their descendents, not one, but two or three generations are already lost, much more devastating that a total annihilation of whole parts of the sum of all people in this land. Just about equal to the influx of foreign-born who came to this country either through relaxed “compassionate” admissions, or by less legal means, say like border-hopping or overstaying visa limitations.

Because of this mindset, America became a little less than it should have been. Maybe a lot less.

Margaret Sanger, Rachel Carson, Joseph Stalin, Chairman Mao... All of them responsible for megadeaths, all for some professed “common good”.

It gives me the creeps. My grandmother spent her final days in the Margaret Sanger Nursing Home in NYC. I’m sure my father had no idea what a vile b*tch that woman was.

Hitler and Stalin and Marx also had “influence” on the world in a very NEGATIVE way.

The shooter in Aurora impacted a lot of families.

That is not enough to CELEBRATE someone.

Time-Lies.

Boycott Time-Warner.

I think you’re assuming “influential” has to be a positive thing; she was influential, just evil.

Recall that Time Magazine named Hitler “Man of the Year”.

Time also named Jim Jones "Man of the Year" back in 1978 and the Ayatollah in 1979; however, Time does point out that the designation is based on a person's impact, not on good or evil (though they did refrain from naming bin Laden in 2001).

Oddly enough, though, Sanger was against abortion. She was in favor of preventing pregnancy and eugenics but was not in favor of killing the unborn. Her movement and her name were both sullied by the pro-abortion crowd. She was still plenty evil, however, because of her elitist views on who should be allowed to procreate, etc.

Her goal was to kill as many Black babies as she could so they wouldn't mix with whites.

Progressives do so little research or maybe they do?

IF what you say is true, this statement of hers is all the more demonic.

Eaton: Amid tragic shootings, abortion stories overlooked

By Fran Eaton July 25, 2012 10:34PM

Updated: July 26, 2012 2:13AM

While many were focused on the terrible tragedy in Aurora Colo., last weekend, Illinois experienced its own array of tragedies. Three men were killed, and 27 were wounded in Chicago shootings, mostly gang-related.

With so many heart-wrenching headlines, overlooked were two sad stories of women who suffered unexpected consequences due to unexpected babies.

The first concerned a 24-year-old Chicago woman who hemorrhaged to death Friday after a surgical abortion went wrong at the Chicago Loop Planned Parenthood clinic. The Cook County medical examiner’s office ruled the death an accident, and her family, including a fiance and a 1-year-old child, were left with myriad unanswered questions.

Planned Parenthood issued a statement that “while legal abortion services in the United States have a very high safety record, a tragedy such as this is devastating to loved ones, and we offer our deepest sympathies. Planned Parenthood of Illinois cares deeply about the health and safety of each and every patient.”

Obviously, Planned Parenthood’s focus is on the expectant mothers, their health and safety, more so than the babies’ they are carrying.

The procedure Planned Parenthood used in this instance was dilation and extraction (D&E), which involves artificially enlarging the woman’s cervix to remove her baby via a vacuum or other surgical instruments. The chances of perforating the uterus is greater as the baby develops.
