There is so much to say about this issue but I prefer to let the experts speak first.
“To use racist arguments to try to bait black people to get them to be anti-abortion is just disgusting,” said Guy-Sheftall, who teaches women’s history and feminist thought at the historically black women’s college.
“These one-issue approaches that are not about saving the black family or black children, it’s just a big distraction,” she said. “Many black people don’t know who Margaret Sanger is and could care less.”
Guy -Sheftall teaches women’s history and feminist thought at Spelman College? Really? I hope she already has tenure because here’s what Margaret Sanger actually said:
“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, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if
it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”

Yes indeedy, those stirring words came from Margaret Sanger father of Planned Parenthood and eugenics proponent extrodinair . You see Mags didn’t like “minorities” or “the religious” or “the ignorant” or a host of other groups of people she found “unfit” for existence. She suggested encouraging all of these groups to jump on the abortion bandwagon and make the earth a better place to live for those who were “fit” for life.
Don’t believe me? Do a little research on what she actually wrote, not what her sycophants have attributed to her. The most frightening thing to be ever uttered by this sociopath………….”
“The most merciful thing that a large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.” Margaret Sanger, Women and the New Race (Eugenics Publ. Co., 1920, 1923)
I wonder how many children would be alive today if Ms. Sanger’s parents had adopted this philosophy in her regard? What a horrible excuse for a human being and what a terrible influence on women everywhere. She makes harpies and liberal women look good in comparison and I’ve got to say that’s a real stretch.
