We should think about Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger when we talk about tearing down statues. She believed that the United States should keep the doors of immigration closed to the entrance of many aliens. Sanger advocated a stern and rigid policy of forced sterilization for much of society.
It's hard to believe the government funds Planned Parenthood.
That really shows how little you know. Planned Parenthood likes abortions. Trump is trying to cut their funding.
So many people try and sidestep the Planned Parenthood issue and get them money. Planned Parenthood claims to be providing healthcare to women, but there are so many other deserving healthcare providers that are not in the abortion industry.
Slaughtering babies is the bread and butter of Planned Parenthood (The name is an oxymoron).
Your biased information is absolutely incorrect. DVaz, I'm looking at you.
Margaret Sanger was actually opposed to abortion; what she supported was birth control and the rights of women. She distributed flyers to women that said
Do not kill, do not take life, but prevent
She fully believed that access to birth control would eliminate the need for abortion.
In 1916, she opened a clinic that provided birth control, and was arrested for distributing birth control/contraception information. She was a firm believer that when a woman had the option and ability to control her own body, they would be more productive members of society. She had a birth control clinic in Harlem, staffed by all black doctors and had an African-American advisory board. This was backed by W.E.B. Du Bois, and Sanger rejected any form of bigotry from her staff, and/or refusal to work closely with other "races."
Her goal was to legalize contraception in the US.
Margaret Sanger supported eugenics for the poor and uneducated, and this included WHITE PEOPLE. At no time in her career did she advocate for the killing of unborn black babies. Stop repeating that ignorant, worn out debunked myth.

1. "But for my view, I believe that there should be no more babies."-- Interview with John Parsons, 1947
Oh, yes, the one-minute video clip that has been sliced and diced; in the same video with Parsons, she said "it should be up to the parents to decide."
It is pointless to even educate you you further because you have proven that cherry picking is your thing, but it is certainly not mine.
The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it."
Context is key. You can not take a single sentence and attribute it to someone without understanding the full context and complexity of the comment. From the same chapter of that book The immorality of large families lies not only in their injury to the members of those families but in their injury to society. If one were asked offhand to name the greatest evil of the day one might, in the light of one?s education by the newspapers, or by agitators, make any one of a number of replies. One might say prostitution, the oppression of labor, child labor, or war. Yet the poverty and neglect which drives a girl into prostitution usually has its source in a family too large to be properly cared for by the mother, if the girl is not actually subnormal because her mother bore too many children, and, therefore, the more likely to become a prostitute. Labor is oppressed because it is too plentiful; wages go up and conditions improve when labor is scarce. Large families make plentiful labor and they also provide the workers for the child-labor factories as well as the armies of unemployed. That population, swelled by overbreeding, is a basic cause of war, we shall see in a later chapter. Without the large family, not one of these evils could exist to any considerable extent, much less to the extent that they exist to-day. The large family?especially the family too large to receive adequate care?is the one thing necessary to the perpetuation of these and other evils and is therefore a greater evil than any one of them. 2 First of the manifold immoralities involved in the producing of a large family is the outrage upon the womanhood of the mother. If no mother bore children against her will or against her feminine instinct, there would be few large families. The average mother of a baby every year or two has been forced into unwilling motherhood, so far as the later arrivals are concerned. It is not the less immoral when the power which compels enslavement is the church, state or the propaganda of well-meaning patriots clamoring against ?race suicide.? The wrong is as great as if the enslaving force were the unbridled passions of her husband. The wrong to the unwilling mother, deprived of her liberty, and all opportunity of self-development, is in itself enough to condemn large families as immoral. 3 The outrage upon the woman does not end there, however. Excessive childbearing is now recognized by the medical profession as one of the most prolific causes of ill health in women. There are in America hundreds of thousands of women, in good health when they married, who have within a few years become physical wrecks, incapable of mothering their children, incapable of enjoying life.
"We don?t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population..."-- Letter to Dr. Clarence J. Gamble, December 10, 1939, p. 2https://libex.smith.edu/omeka/...
Oh, this is a favorite of mine. Once again, critical thinking, intelligence, and honesty is required to fully comprehend what this statement means
In the late 1930s, she sought to bring clinics to black women in the South, in an effort that was called the ?Negro Project.? Sanger wrote in 1939 letters to colleague Clarence James Gamble that she believed the project needed a black physician and black minister to gain the trust of the community:
Sanger, 1939: The minister?s work is also important and he should be trained, perhaps by the Federation as to our ideals and the goal that we hope to reach. 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.
Sanger says that a minister could debunk the notion, if it arose, that the clinics aimed to ?exterminate the Negro population.? She didn?t say that she wanted to ?exterminate? the black population. The Margaret Sanger Papers Project at New York University says that this quote has ?gone viral on the Internet,? normally out of context, and it ?doesn?t reflect the fact that Sanger recognized elements within the black community might mistakenly associate the Negro Project with racist sterilization campaigns in the Jim Crow south, unless clergy and other community leaders spread the word that the Project had a humanitarian aim.?
DVaz, stop listening to Hermain Cain. ?I accepted an invitation to talk to the women's branch of the Ku Klux Klan... 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.

Once again, you are being completely dishonest, or ignorant, by only highlighting a portion of the passage
The ACTUAL passage
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.
My letter of instruction told me what train to take, to walk from the station two blocks straight ahead, then two to the left. I would see a sedan parked in front of a restaurant. If I wished I could have ten minutes for a cup of coffee or bite to eat, because no supper would be served later.
I obeyed orders implicitly, walked the blocks, saw the car, found the restaurant, went in and ordered some cocoa, stayed my allotted ten minutes, then approached the car hesitatingly and spoke to the driver. I received no reply. She might have been totally deaf as far as I was concerned. Mustering up my courage, I climbed in the back and settled back. Without a turn of the head, a smile, or a word to let me know I was right, she stepped on the self-starter. For fifteen minutes we wound around the streets. It must have been towards six in the afternoon. We took this lonely lane and that through the woods, and an hour later pulled up in a vacant space near a body of water beside a large, unpainted, barnish building.
My driver got out, talked with several other women, then said to me severely, ?Wait here. We will come for you.? She disappeared. More cars buzzed up the dusty road into the parking place. Occasionally men dropped wives who walked hurriedly and silently within. This went on mystically until night closed down and I was alone in the dark. A few gleams came through chinks in the window curtains. Even though it was May, I grew chillier and chillier.
After three hours I was summoned at last and entered a bright corridor filled with wraps. As someone came out of the hall I saw through the door dim figures parading with banners and illuminated crosses. I waited another twenty minutes. It was warmer and I did not mind so much. Eventually the lights were switched on, the audience seated itself, and I was escorted to the platform, was introduced, and began to speak.
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. Under a curfew law everything in Silver Lake shut at nine o?clock. I could not even send a telegram to let my family know whether I had been thrown in the river or was being held incommunicado. It was nearly one before I reached Trenton, and I spent the night in a hotel.
Your inability to comprehend, while not surprising, is pathetic. You should be ashamed.
Sanger NEVER said SHE wanted to exterminate anyone, but rather, she didn't want the word to get out that that was happening, which is why she depended on black physicians. Basically, she was saying people that would believe that, like you, were stupid.
She worked closely with the black community. That is a fact, and no amount of you desperately wanting it to be otherwise will change that. Ever.
What I claimed is what she said in the quote that is famous. I haven't seen one single person until you even try to disprove or debunk it. So thank you for your effort there. Reading comprehension wasn't the problem. I've never seen that other information because I haven't heard anyone mention it left or right. I went directly off the quote because that's all that I have ever seen or heard for years. I don't spend my hours researching her, sorry bud. But thanks for the information. I actually appreciate it.
