“Planned Parenthood Founder Spoke at Ku Klux Klan Rally”

Like her heroes, Darwin (evolution) and Galton (eugenics), Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, was a white, racist psychopath!

Planned Parenthood founder spoke at Ku Klux Klan rally

by Jon Rappoport

August 12, 2015


“She [Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood] even presented at a Ku Klux Klan rally in 1926 in Silver Lake, N.J. She recounted this event in her autobiography: ‘I accepted an invitation to talk to the women’s branch of the Ku Klux Klan … I saw through the door dim figures parading with banners and illuminated crosses … I was escorted to the platform, was introduced, and began to speak … In the end, through simple illustrations I believed I had accomplished my purpose. A dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered.’ (Margaret Sanger, ‘An Autobiography,’ Page 366).” — The Washington Times, “Margaret Sanger, racist eugenicist extraordinaire,” May 5, 2014, by Arina Grossu.

Here is a fuller version of that Sanger quote:

“Always to me any aroused group was a good group, and therefore I accepted an invitation to talk to the women’s branch of the Ku Klux Klan at Silver Lake, New Jersey, one of the weirdest experiences I had in lecturing. […] Never before had I looked into a sea of faces like these. I was sure that if I uttered one word, such as abortion, outside the usual vocabulary of these women they would go off into hysteria. And so my address that night had to be in the most elementary terms, as though I were trying to make children understand. In the end, through simple illustrations I believed I had accomplished my purpose. A dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered. The conversation went on and on, and when we were finally through it was too late to return to New York.” (Sanger, Chapter 29, “While the Doctors Consult”, p. 366.)

Author Grossu (Washington Times) continues:

“In a letter to Clarence Gable in 1939, Sanger wrote: ‘We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.’ (Margaret Sanger commenting on the ‘Negro Project’ in a letter to Gamble, Dec. 10, 1939).”

And then Grossu comments:

“79 percent of Planned Parenthood’s surgical abortion facilities are located within walking distance of black or Hispanic communities.”

Finally, Grossu writes:

“The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Abortion Surveillance report revealed that between 2007 and 2010, nearly 36 percent of all abortions in the United States were performed on black children, even though black Americans make up only 13 percent of our population.”

Margaret Sanger was a leader in the American eugenics movement. Some have argued that her comments about wanting to exterminate the black population were misconstrued: Sanger was actually saying she didn’t want people to get the wrong idea and think she was advocating genocide. On the other hand, Sanger wrote, in her famous 1912 essay, “What Every Girl Should Know”:

“In all fish and reptiles where there is no great brain development, there is also no conscious sexual control. The lower down in the scale of human development we go the less sexual control we find. It is said that the aboriginal Australian, the lowest known species of the human family, just a step higher than the chimpanzee in brain development, has so little sexual control that police authority alone prevents him from obtaining sexual satisfaction on the streets.”

Sanger also wrote this:

“Birth control is not contraception indiscriminately and thoughtlessly practiced. It means the release and cultivation of the better racial elements in our society, and the gradual suppression, elimination and eventual extirpation of defective stocks—those human weeds which threaten the blooming of the finest flowers of American civilization.” (“Apostle of Birth Control Sees Cause Gaining Here”, The New York Times, 1923-04-08)

Here’s another quote from Sanger:

“…apply a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is already tainted…to apportion farm lands and homesteads for these segregated persons where they would be…for the period of their entire lives.” –– Margaret Sanger, Birth Control Review, “A Plan for Peace”, April 1932, Vol 26, Number 4

And if that is not clear enough, Sanger wrote this:

“The main objects of the Population Congress would be […] (f) to give certain dysgenic groups in our population their choice of segregation or sterilization.” (“A Plan for Peace”, April 1932, pp. 107-108, summarizing an address to the New History Society, New York City, 1932-01-17)

Here is another Sanger quote, from her 1920 book, Women and the New Race—Chapter 5, “The Wickedness of Creating Large Families”:

“The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it. The same factors which create the terrible infant mortality rate, and which swell the death rate of children between the ages of one and five, operate even more extensively to lower the health rate of the surviving members [in large families].”

Margaret Sanger was one of America’s leading proponents of eugenics. She favored sterilization and segregation, in order to prevent giving birth among those women she deemed unfit and defective.

Planned Parenthood, of course, chooses to downplay these aggressive views of its founder. The group also avoids mentioning that Sanger was strongly opposed to abortion, favoring the eugenicist birth-control methods I just mentioned. (emphasis added)

No, there is absolutely nothing dehumanizing about the hypotheses of evolution and eugenics! Of course not!

Evolution/eugenics: an insanely twisted “scientific” rationale for the mass murder of millions of human beings, whether in or outside of the womb, who do not meet the standards for living life set by elite, bigoted white psychopaths!

  1. In my view, it was largely Sanger’s upper middle class status and affiliation with the eugenics movement that enabled her to “legitimatize” birth control by founding birth control clinics such as Planned Parenthood..

    Contrary to popular misconception, Sanger didn’t introduce birth control to the US – this was done by early prostitutes (the only avenue in historical times for women to achieve true economic independence) and the doctors who looked after them.

    Christian fundamentalists like to make the argument that because Sanger was affiliated with the eugenics movement, this must mean that Planned Parenthood and all birth control is part of a eugenics conspiracy. This is a logical fallacy (formally known as argumentum ad hominem). It also furthers the Christian fundamentalist agenda of suppressing women’s inequality and economic independence.

    Ironically although the eugenicists supported birth control with the intention of “weeding out” undesirables of low birth, the result has been the exact opposite. At present (at least in the US) a woman has to be fairly well-to-do to access birth control and abortions – which means low income women are far less likely to use it to control family size.

  2. My opinions on this issue have nothing to do with any religion. This is something I have strong opinions about based on what I have read and my own sense of morality.

    I taught in an inner city school for a while, and there were several girls who had multiple abortions, and all were lower middle-class to poor whites and blacks. So I’m not sure you are correct, at least about the cost of abortion being prohibitive for the poor. Birth control may be much different, don’t know?

    This is not the first time I have read and written about eugenics and Sanger. I mentioned on the post the book, War Against the Weak, by Edwin Black, who is not a fundamentalist Christian, and neither is Rappoport. The book is filled with verifiable evidence, in fact it was one of the longest and most tedious reads I have had since college. The evidence is there as well, Sanger was a eugenicist and racist.


  3. Just to be clear, I’m not disputing that Sanger was a eugenicist – and I’m not accusing either you or Rappoport of being fundamentalist Christians. I don’t know what Rappoport’s motivation is but the article you cite isn’t investigative journalism (as he claims on his website) – it’s a polemic against Planned Parenthood. Especially when he makes out that Planned Parenthood is trying to minimize or conceal Sanger’s involvement in the eugenics movement. He has no evidence whatsoever for this statement.

    Whether he means to or not, he’s clearly playing into the hands of the Christian right which is presently trying to strip Planned Parenthood of the funding they use to provide birth control and abortions to low income women.
