Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, stated, “The kindest thing that a large family can do for its youngest member is to kill it.” She founded that evil organization to make her dream of a world without “racially inferior people” possible. But Hillary Clinton has stated that, “I admire Margaret Sanger enormously.”
Hillary first expressed her admiration for Sanger when she was awarded the “Margaret Sanger Award”. She also defended Sanger in front of a Congressional Committee. (See VIDEO below.) Let’s examine who this woman that Hillary adores really was.
Many have reported hearing Sanger say in speeches the most famous phrase attributed to her: “Colored people are like human weeds and need to be exterminated.” That exact phrase cannot be found in her books and articles, so there is a question in some peoples’ minds about its authenticity. However, there is no controversy about this quote on April 8, 1923 in the NY Times, which expresses the same sentiment…
Speaking of birth control, sterilization and abortion, she told the reporter, “It means the release and cultivation of the better racial elements in our society, and the gradual suppression, elimination and eventual extirpation of defective breeding stocks – those human weeds which threaten the blooming of the finest flowers of American civilization.”
Sanger opened the first birth control clinic in 1916. In 1921 she founded The American Birth Control League, which later was renamed Planned Parenthood. “Birth Control” sounds innocent enough, but for Sanger the goal was always sterilization and abortion.
The abortion movement that she began had one purpose: the elimination of “inferior” people such as blacks, the poor, and the disabled. She wanted to start a “New Race.” In fact, she wrote a book titled, “Women and the New Race.”
In it she wrote, “Knowledge of birth control is essentially moral. Its general, though prudent, practice must lead to a higher individuality and ultimately to a cleaner race…How are we to breed a race of human thoroughbreds unless we follow the same plan? We must make this country into a garden of children instead of a disorderly back lot overrun with human weeds.” She made it clear that the “human weeds” she wanted to exterminate included “inferior” colored people.
That she was the worst kind of racist is without question. It is one thing to be racist in the sense of discriminating against someone of another race. It is an entirely different matter when one makes it her life’s work to sterilize “inferior” black women and does everything she can to make them abort their babies if they do get pregnant. Her work continues today: 78% of Planned Parenthood’s abortion mills are located in black neighborhoods.
Here is a verified quote from Sanger that demonstrates her contempt for (and her desire to eliminate) anyone who didn’t fit into her Nazi-like concept of a Super Race: “The third group [of society] are those irresponsible and reckless ones having little regard for the consequences of their acts, or whose religious scruples prevent their exercising control over their numbers. Many of this group are diseased, feeble-minded, and are of the pauper element dependent upon the normal and fit members of society for their support. There is no doubt in the minds of all thinking people that the procreation of this group should be stopped.”
In this quote we see Sanger adding religious, diseased and feeble-minded people to the list of people quoted earlier that she wants to eliminate: blacks, the poor and the disabled. The only people on Hitler’s extermination list that she missed were Jews. But perhaps she included them in the ‘religious’ category.
So she was not just a racist – she wanted to create her own race, and stop the “procreation of this group” – the group being anyone that she did not consider worthy of life.
Eugenics, which Sanger popularized, is described as “The science of improving a human population by controlled breeding to increase the occurrence of desirable heritable characteristics. The movement would ‘purify’ the human race either by aborting those who don’t measure up to their standards of physical and mental perfection or, and often forcibly, by sterilizing poor people. It fell into disfavor only after the perversion of its doctrines by the Nazis.”
The problem with Eugenics is that someone, somewhere gets to decide what the “desirable” characteristics are, and therefore who lives or dies. No wonder Eugenics “fell into disfavor” after the Nazis. No one in their right mind would ever espouse Eugenics. Since Sanger promoted it vociferously, one must question her sanity.
In an article Sanger wrote in October 1921, “The Eugenic Value of Birth Control Propaganda“, she said, “Eugenics is the most adequate and thorough avenue to the solution of racial, political and social problems.
In her article Sterilization: A Modern Medical Program for Human Health and Welfare Sanger begins by bemoaning the fact that a blind couple had been allowed to have children, because the children were born blind. She goes on to talk with pride about sterilization programs in which thousands of sterilizations had been performed on “the mentally deficient” as well as “the blind, deaf mutes and others whose misfortunes are transmissible.”
Sanger believed forced sterilization would only work if the government enforced it. In this same article she said that sterilization programs can only succeed with “the active support of government.” In the next paragraph she proclaimed, “It should be the duty of government not only to supply the facilities which will enable these unfortunates to be sterilized, but to protect them afterwards.” She was a monster, but wanted to be able to maintain the image of a beneficent humanitarian who only cared about the betterment of society.
Finally, in The Function of Sterilization, she wrote, “There is only one reply to a request for a higher birthrate among the intelligent, and that is to ask the government to first take the burden of the insane and feeble-minded from your back. Mandatory sterilization for these is the answer.”
Please make sure you read the “History of Forced Sterilization and Current US Abuses” (article LINK below). It describes how the US and state governments sterilized untold numbers of women, men, and even children. For instance, a 1965 survey of Puerto Rican women found that fully one third had been sterilized due to government influence and often coercion. That is ten times the number of sterilizations of US women, and was a direct result of government concerns about overpopulation in the US territory. Latina, black and Native American women had the highest rates of forced sterilization thanks to Sanger’s pushing of Eugenics as a science.
I also recommend George Grant’s book, Killer Angel. BlackGenocide.org describes the book like this: “Through detailed research and concise writing, Grant unveils Sanger’s true character and ideology, which included blatant racism, revolutionary socialism, sexual perversion and insatiable avarice. Grant includes direct quotes from sources such as Sanger’s Birth Control Review to support his findings. His biography spans Sanger’s disturbed and unhappy upbringing which Sanger said contributed to her agitation and bitterness later in life, and to her eventual fixation with drugs, alcohol and the occult.”
I will conclude the discussion of forced sterilization with the story of a woman who was sterilized without her knowledge. To our everlasting shame, thirty-one US states passed sterilization and/or Eugenics laws. Many of them forced people in state institutions to undergo sterilization. Sterilizations were performed on others without their knowledge or consent. None of these programs would have existed without what Hillary describes as Margaret Sanger’s “courage” and “pioneering work.” Sanger’s crusade is directly responsible for the sterilization of tens, perhaps hundreds of thousands of women.
In 1967 13-year-old Elaine Reddick was raped by a neighbor and became pregnant. As if that weren’t horrible enough, she was raped by North Carolina’s Eugenics Board while she got an abortion. The Board in Raleigh never met her. They took the recommendation of the hospital, who said she was “feeble-minded and promiscuous.” They also said her grades were poor and she didn’t get along well with other students. Imagine how many hundreds of thousands of students in this country that could be said of! But Elaine was black and powerless. So the State of North Carolina butchered her. They sterilized her without her permission. Years later when she married and tried to have children she found out what the government had done to her.
According to the article below – “Victims Speak Out” – that tells Elaine’s story: “It began as a way to control welfare spending on poor white women and men, but over time, North Carolina shifted focus, targeting more blacks than whites. A third of the sterilizations performed in North Carolina were done on girls under the age of 18. Some were as young as nine years old.” The state’s Eugenics Board was not disbanded until 1977. But the law allowing involuntary sterilization was not repealed until 2003. This is the legacy of Margaret Sanger.
So let’s summarize what we know about Sanger from her own writings and speeches:
1) She was a racist.
2) She was a supremacist (she wanted to create a “pure race”).
3) She targeted black women for abortions.
4) She advocated for forced sterilization of people she considered “inferior”.
5) Thanks to her “pioneering work”, forced sterilization continues in the US today.
6) She wanted government to issue “licenses” for approved people to have babies.
The people she mentioned in her many books and articles that “should not be allowed to reproduce” and should undergo forced sterilization included:
1) The feebleminded
3) The blind
4) Deaf mutes
5) People she considered promiscuous
8) The insane
9) The poor of any race
10) Anyone without “pure” blood
From an interview with Mike Wallace in 1952 (which you can find on YouTube), we see that:
1) She didn’t believe in Christianity.
2) She didn’t believe in God.
3) She didn’t believe adultery or fornication was sin.
4) She said that homosexuality is not perversion.
Basically, she was as Liberal as Hillary Clinton.
This brings us full circle for this article. I cannot say whether Hillary espouses Eugenics; she is much too careful a politician to reveal that if she does. But she certainly believes she is better than everyone else and knows better than anyone else – both classic traits of Eugenicists.
I cannot say that Hillary is a racist. If she admitted that she was, it would certainly shock the millions of black people who blindly follow her just because she is a Democrat. But I can say with certainly that she hurts blacks and other minorities with her support for a welfare system that traps generation after generation in poverty and dependence on the government.
I don’t know that she believes the same things about Christianity and God that Sanger did. But without doubt her beliefs are the opposite of what evangelical Christians believe and the tenets the Bible teaches. For instance, she slavishly parrots the demands of every perverted group, including homosexuals, lesbians, bisexuals, transgenders and all the rest, and demands special rights for them. And she is every bit as bloodthirsty as Obama when it comes to abortion on demand. She strongly believes, like Sanger, that it is a woman’s “right” to murder her baby in her womb. As Secretary of State she exported abortions all over the world using US tax dollars.
I have never heard Hillary advocate either for punishing people for having a baby without a government license, or for forced sterilization, as Sanger did. But she has repeated that she greatly admires Sanger many times in many forums. So one could assume that she sympathizes with the positions of this woman whom she called “heroic” and “pioneering.”
When the Planned Parenthood Federation of America gave the Margaret Sanger Award to Hillary Clinton for her “contributions to the advancement of women’s health care” Clinton lavished praise on Sanger and the murderous organization she founded. Because of the controversy that followed Clinton saying how much she admired Sanger, Planned Parenthood removed her remarks from their website. But I was able to locate them (see VIDEO below).
During her acceptance speech, Clinton said: “It was a great privilege when I was told that I would receive this award. I admire Margaret Sanger enormously. Her courage, her tenacity, her vision…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’m really in awe of her. There are a lot of lessons we can learn from her life, from the cause she launched and fought for and sacrificed for so greatly.” Later she refused to retract this and defended her remarks before a Congressional committee (see VIDEO “Hillary Defends Sanger).
Forget about all her lies, her leaving the Benghazi Four to die in Libya, her misuse of funds, and her endangering national security. Just the fact that she says she is “in awe” of a monster like Margaret Sanger is enough to disqualify her for the highest office in the land. Sanger was a racist and a supremacist. She believed the government should decide who was worthy to be allowed to have children, and should license parents before they could have a child – one child per family. And Hillary “admires her enormously.” Enough said.

12 Disturbing Quotes from Margaret Sanger: Planned Parenthood’s Foundress
VERIFIED QUOTES FROM MARGARET SANGER’S WRITINGS:
In 1932 in her Birth Control Review Sanger listed people that she considered would be detrimental to her Super Race: “Feebleminded, idiots, morons, insane, syphilitic, alcoholics and epileptics.” She wrote that people she considered to be “unfit” should be sent to “farm lands and homesteads” where “they would be taught to work under competent instructors for the period of their entire lives.” I guess that’s better than a gas chamber.
Her Plan for Peace could have come directly from Communist China’s one-child policy: “No woman shall have the legal right to bear a child, and no man shall have the right to become a father, without a permit. No permit for parenthood shall be valid for more than one birth.”
In her 1922 book Woman, Morality, and Birth Control, Sanger wrote on Page 12, “We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population.”
In Pivot of Civilization, speaking of the types of human “breeding stock” that should not be allowed to live, Sanger wrote, “Such parents swell the pathetic ranks of the unemployed. Feeble-mindedness perpetuates itself from the ranks of those who are blandly indifferent to their racial responsibilities. And it is largely this type of humanity we are now drawing upon to populate our world for the generations to come.”
In her 1932 “Plan for Peace” she advocated“a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is already tainted, or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to offspring.”Tags: Abortion Hillary Clinton Planned Parenthood
