Planned Parenthood founder: large families should kill infants

Shocking, but true.

Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger wrote the following in a book titled, “Woman and the new race“:

The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.

Note that she is not talking about abortion here but rather talking about BORN children. I am sure that some people reading this post are thinking that this statement is a fabrication or a distortion. If that is you, I would direct you to this scan of the page from her book where the statement is found:

You also can read the whole book online from Google books here.

Now you would think that Planned Parenthood would distance themselves from Margaret Sanger and try to salvage their image but that has not been the case.

Planned Parenthood proudly gives out annual awards in Sanger’s name:

The Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) Maggie Awards recognize exceptional contributions by the media and arts and entertainment industries that enhance the public’s understanding of reproductive rights and health care issues, including contraception, sex education, teen pregnancy, abortion, and international family planning.

Named after Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, the annual awards cover the following categories: advertising, broadcast media and video, magazine, music, new media, newspaper, and radio.

Planned Parenthood even names their clinics after her.

How is it that Planned Parenthood gets away with the continued celebration of a woman who advocated for the murder of small children?

We have allowed death to be elevated and life to be trashed. The big media will not expose this so we must do the work ourselves and educate our nation so that the honoring of infant killing advocate Margaret Sanger ends.
