The founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger had bluntly stated in her 1922 pamphlet, The Pivot of Civilization, “birth control,” a term she coined, as “the process of weeding out the unfit” was aimed at “the creation of a superman.”
She was also influenced by Henry Havelock Ellis (2 February 1859 – 8 July 1939), a British sexologist, who wrote that under-educated women needed contraception so they wouldn’t pass on their “weakness” to their offspring.
Sanger once wrote: “The most urgent problem today is how to limit and discourage the over fertility of those who are physically, mentally, and morally unfit.”
This plan also focused on African Americans using religion and their own people.
In 1922, Sanger wrote: “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 do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population.”
Sanger’s organization, Planned Parenthood, has been responsible for countless abortions and birth control measures, but her legacy has been largely forgotten by today’s feminists and African Americans.
Sanger’s background was linked to eugenics, an ideology based on improving human hereditary traits through social intervention. Eugenics was popular in America from the late 19th century through the mid-20th century.
The idea behind eugenics was that if you wanted to get rid of people who were criminals or mentally ill or poor or whatever else, then you should prevent them from having children. In an article in her magazine Birth Control Review, she wrote: “More children from the fit, less from the unfit—that is the chief aim of Eugenics.”
This is why it was so closely associated with birth control and still is to this very day, and her baby killing propaganda has worked wonders on the feeble American mind to the point that the CDC reported 629,898 abortions in 2019, the last full year of available data.
Sanger’s American Eugenics program focused on identifying those with “undesirable” traits and preventing them from reproducing; in some cases, this involved forced sterilization or euthanasia.
She called for legislation “for the sterilization of failure-prone individuals,” and even published a paper entitled “The Eugenic Value of Birth Control Propaganda,” which argued that birth control should be used as a method for controlling populations deemed unworthy by the state.
Yes, including today’s feminists, who many belong to the very same undesirable groups she identifies as whose babies need to be simply murdered.
Rather than educate and help lower and middle class women with guidance on proper nutrition, hygiene, and adequate health care to raise their children, Sanger argues that our society as a whole would be better off with these children dead.
This may seem like hyperbole – until you read her own words.
In fact, Margret Sanger was not shy in expressing her opinions on the mass killing of babies.
As I mentioned above, she had written that “the most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it,” and that “all our problems are the result of overbreeding among the evils of too prolific breeding among wage-workers .”
The full quote comes from her 1920 book Woman and the New Race, from the chapter, “The Wickedness of Creating Large Families.” Sanger wrote;
“Many, perhaps, will think it idle to go farther in demonstrating the immorality of large families, but since there is still an abundance of proof at hand, it may be offered for the sake of those who find difficulty in adjusting old-fashioned ideas to the facts.
The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.
The same factors which create the terrible infant mortality rate, and which swell the death rate of children between the ages of one and five, operate even more extensively to lower the health rate of the surviving members. Moreover, the overcrowded homes of large families reared in poverty further contribute to this condition.
Lack of medical attention is still another factor, so that the child who must struggle for health in competition with other members of a closely packed family has still great difficulties to meet after its poor constitution and malnutrition have been accounted for.”
Margret Sanger had complete disdain towards the middle and lower classes in America. The very people who we call today “essential workers” that keep our economy and the system operating.
In fact, Sanger wanted to kill them all!
The unworthy obviously include all criminals, paupers, and work-shirkers. They should either be segregated or eliminated by some humane form of euthanasia. The worthy class would include only those who are physically fit (no cripples or lunatics), mentally capable (no idiots), and morally sound (no criminals).
In “The Morality of Birth Control”, a 1921 speech, she divided society into three groups: the “educated and informed” class that regulated the size of their families, the “intelligent and responsible” who desired to control their families in spite of lacking the means or the knowledge, and the “irresponsible and reckless people” whose religious scruples “prevent their exercising control over their numbers”.
Sanger emphatically states, “There is no doubt in the minds of all thinking people that the procreation of this group should be stopped.”
The probability of a child handicapped by a weak constitution, an overcrowded home, inadequate food and care, and possibly a deficient mental equipment, winding up in prison or an almshouse, is too evident for comment. Every jail, hospital for the insane, reformatory and institution for the feebleminded cries out against the evils of too prolific breeding among wage-workers,” she said.
In 1939, Sanger wrote in her autobiography: “When I became convinced that there was no reasonable hope of converting the American people to birth control through voluntary education, I decided to devote what time I had left in America to establishing a clinic which would be dedicated to its principles.”
In October 1939, Sanger opened her first birth control clinic in Brownsville, Brooklyn. It was closed by police after three days, but reopened two weeks later under the direction of Sanger’s associate, Mary Lasker. The next year, 1940, Sanger opened another clinic in Harlem; it was closed by police after three months.
Like we see today, Margaret Sanger was the person who introduced the evil propaganda women are not free unless they can control their bodies and decide whether or they will be a mother. Meaning, that if these women do not have the power to kill their unborn babies, then they are not free people.
“No woman can call herself free who does not own and control her body. No woman can call herself free until she can choose consciously whether she will or will not be a mother.”
“Woman must have her freedom, the fundamental freedom of choosing whether or not she will be a mother and how many children she will have. Regardless of what man’s attitude may be, that problem is hers — and before it can be his, it is hers alone.
She goes through the vale of death alone, each time a babe is born. As it is the right neither of man nor the state to coerce her into this ordeal, so it is her right to decide whether she will endure it.” (Woman and the New Race)
In her 1922 book, The Pivot of Civilization, she wrote: “As an example of what I mean by intelligent direction of fecundity. . . . wee should require that every woman be taught how to perform her own abortion and that there should be erected throughout this nation free clinics where abortions would be performed at public expense.”
As a result of her work and government funding, Sanger co-founded an organization called the American Birth Control League (ABCL) in 1921 and then two years later renamed it The Birth Control Federation of America (BCFA). She served as president of the American Birth Control League from 1922 until 1929, when it was renamed Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA).
Her successor as president was Frederick J. Taussig, an economist and friend who had helped her found PPFA. In 1936 PPFA merged with Margaret Sanger’s Birth Control Clinical Research Bureau to form Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA).
When you research the work and quotes from Margret Sanger as I provided just a few above, you find a very cold, psychopathic intellectual who provides the ideology and foundational premises for the like minded monsters (demons) who will actually carry out the business-end of her evil intentions.
Today, she is loved and admired mainly by the Democrats and the political Left in this country.
Sanger’s evil plans seemed to have worked like a charm on those weak American minds who follow her baby-killing gospel to this very day. Even to their own detriment.
People, if that is what you want to call them, who have no qualms at killing their own babies and euthenizing the morally and mentally unfit – meaning their own families.
The very population she wanted to kill is not only demanding the freedom to murder their own babies, if needed be, they will kill you for the right to do so!

Having been taught all of my Christian life that Gnosticism was “damnable heresy” I am coming around to believing it’s correct. The key difference being that the Gnostic Christians are variable in their core beliefs which is how it should be — arriving at thoughtful conclusion rather than repeating dogmas.
Men are to blame for abortions. If men would quit impregnating females who do not want to give birth, there would be far fewer abortions. Some abortions are medically necessary to save the life of the mother, but that makes up only 2% of abortions.
Men must take action! Stop impregnating women without regard to the life created. Banning abortions or making them safe and legal do nothing to address the underlying cause. A woman cannot always control who impregnates her. But a man can always control himself, and if he can not, then he should have a vasectomy or be imprisoned.
If you are going to require people to reproduce then you have an obligation to provide a society where they can thrive. When we allow the wealthy to subvert our political system so that life expectency for working people decreases year after year, so that housing costs exponentially increase year after year while wages remain largely the same, so that health care costs are prohibitive and effectively denies health care to the poor, then the only reason to deny birth control is to force an increase in the population so the wealthy can force lower wages and benefits upon the working people in a glutted workforce, exactly what we see in early 21st century India and China. The Gnostic revelation that the body, soul, and all of Creation are in fact a prison keeping Humanity captive from its true home is incompatible with right wing ideology and the manipulation of humans so that they sabotage their life and lower the living conditions of the majority to the benefit of the minority. No one is free to pursue the Salvific Gnosis of they cannot afford a place to live, if they cannot afford healthcare, if they are persuaded to follow the reproductive drive which the Gnostic Scriptures explicitly state was created by the Demiurge and its Rulers to subjegate Humanity. The creator of this site continuously exposes their ignorance of the Gnosis and their dependence upon the teachings of Orthodoxy which they subtly modify in slight and meaningless ways and then proclaim as teachings of the Gnosis. After reading most of their publicly available writings very little of any value has been found. I doubt very much that anyone associated with this site has any real knowldge at all.
