Pearls of wisdom from Margaret Sanger

We know Margaret Sanger as an iconic pioneering feminist and founder of Planned Parenthood, originally known as the American Birth Control League. We know that 79% of Planned Parenthood’s surgical abortion facilities are operating in poor minority neighborhoods, but this factoid is of no concern to young impressionable pseudo-feminists methodically chanting “hail Satan, hail Satan” around a pro-life rally, or our race-baiting president who gave the infamous praise, “God bless Planned Parenthood!” on national television.

Never mind the fact that Saint Sanger was also the founder in chief of the Negro Project, the ultimatum of which was to diminish the black population, or that she was a guest speaker at a Ku Klux Klan rally in 1939.

Below are just a few of my favorite little snippets from the origins of our feminist movement; glimpses into the dark mind of Margaret Sanger herself, and the agenda that still drives Planned Parenthood today.


I share with you now some pearls of wisdom from the mouth of Margaret Sanger:

“We must cultivate our garden.”

“Birth control must ultimately lead to a cleaner race.”

“Super Man is the aim of birth control.” 

“Today eugenics is suggested by the most diverse minds as the most adequate and thorough avenue to the solution of racial, political and social problems.”

“Our failure to segregate morons who are increasing and multiplying demonstrates our foolhardy and extravagant sentimentalism … Philanthropists encourage the healthier and more normal sections of the world to shoulder the burden of unthinking and indiscriminate fecundity of others; which brings with it, as I think the reader must agree, a dead weight of human waste. Instead of decreasing and aiming to eliminate the stocks that are most detrimental to the future of the race and the world, it tends to render them to a menacing degree dominant … We are paying for, and even submitting to, the dictates of an ever-increasing, unceasingly spawning class of human beings who never should have been born at all.”

“Such parents ( poor and minority ) 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 this orgy of multiplying and replenishing the earth, this type is pari passu multiplying and perpetuating those direst evils in which we must, if civilization is to survive, extirpate by the very roots.”

“The purpose of birth control is to create a race of thoroughbreds.”

“The negro problem is one of the most complicated and important facing America.” And skipping ahead through a bunch more b.s., she writes, “The present submerged condition of the negro is due in large part to the high fertility of the race, and disastrously adverse circumstances.” Bla, bla, “…brings to light the function of birth control as a necessary agency in it’s solution.”

“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.”

“Couples should be required to submit applications to have a child.”

That one reminds me of another quote that struck me from Dr. Eric R. Pianka:

“China was able to turn the corner and become the leading world super power because they have adopted the police state and because they are able to force people to stop reproducing.”

Power thirsty minds do think alike.

The foundation of a house will remain the foundation of that house until it’s demolition.
