Margaret Sanger: Racist Friend of the KKK


Planned Parenthood loves to pooh-pooh the facts about Margaret Sanger's racism. But it is a historical fact that Sanger was invited and accepted an invitation to speak at a Ku Klux Klan ralley which generated, according to her, another dozen invitations. I have been trying to find the speech she gave on that occasion without success, but I can guess.
Sanger was a WASP elitist who believed that blacks, Catholics, Jews, Irish immigrants and many other groups were human weeds. She must have particularly hated the large Catholic families of the early 20th century. Perhaps she was thinking of Catholic families when she said:
THE MOST serious evil of our times is that of encouraging the bringing into the world of large families. The most immoral practice of the day is breeding too many children....
The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it....
The immorality of bringing into being a large family is a wrong-doing shared by three—the mother, the father and society. Upon all three falls the burden of guilt. It may be said for the mother and father that they are usually ignorant. What shall be said of society? What shall be said of us who permit outworn laws and customs to persist in piling up the appalling sum of public expense, misery and spiritual degradation? The indictment against the large unwanted family is written in human woe. Who in the light of intelligent understanding shall have the brazenness to stand up and defend it?      Read the complete article.
Sanger described her cloak and dagger experience with the KKK in her autobiography. A warning about that work. I read it about twenty years ago and found it to be a self-serving work. Sanger often credited herself with the work of others. She also exaggerated her credentials claiming to be a nurse. She had some nurses training, never completed. So who knows how much she exaggerated this tale. At any rate, she was among her own, illustrated by the fact that she received numerous invitations afterwards. The Klan hated many of the same groups she did including "Negroes" whom she considered indiscriminate breeders.

Sanger is a champion of the Culture of Death. Just as the Church has saints, God's generals, Satan has his own leaders. Sanger was surely one of them. Did she repent before she died as a drug abusing alcoholic? I can't begin to guess, but her life was a tragedy from start to finish. She was a charismatic woman who could have done great good had she marched under the standard of Christ. She chose instead to march under Satan's banner. God have mercy on her.
