Which is why it’s clearly ironic that Margaret Sanger, darling of the left and pro-choicers everywhere as the founder of Planned Parenthood, is one of the fifteen candidates being considered.
Lefties like to champion her quote, “No woman can call herself free who cannot own and control her body.”
But they always conveniently seem to miss these:
“[We should] apply a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is tainted, or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to offspring.”
From her Plan for Peace: Article 4. “No woman shall have the legal right to bear a child, and no man shall have the right to become a father, without a permit…”
“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.”
“Give dysgenic groups [people with “bad genes”] in our population their choice of segregation or [compulsory] sterilization.”
And this doozy:
“Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race.”
Gee, I wonder why Germany never considered putting Josef Mengele on its currency?
