The president and chief executive of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Alexis McGill Johnson, has called out founder Margaret Sanger’s association with white supremecist groups and eugenic ideology in a new Op-ed for the New York Times, explaining that it’s no longer acceptable to excuse her monstrous views as a product of her time, but rather a real reckoning must be had of her many unacceptable motivations.
Johnson goes on to explain, “Sanger spoke to the women’s auxiliary of the Ku Klux Klan at a rally in New Jersey to generate support for birth control,” and “she endorsed the Supreme Court’s 1927 decision in Buck v. Bell, which allowed states to sterilize people deemed ‘unfit’ without their consent and sometimes without their knowledge.” This along with her involvement in the first human trials of the birth control pill, which involved giving women the drug without explaining that it was experimental and had dangerous side effects is another strike against her.
In the name of political expedience, she chose to engage white supremacists to further her cause. In doing that, she devalued and dehumanized people of color.
Still, Johnson explains that while she may be canceled, she will never be erased, which is why she pulls her punches by explaining, “Whether our founder was a racist is not a simple yes or no question.”
For Planned Parenthood, the apex predator of the baby-killing world, Sanger’s reputation is tarnished but not negated. Johnson notes, “We will no longer make excuses or apologize for Margaret Sanger’s actions, but we can’t simply call her racist, scrub her from our history, and move on.”
The fact that the abortion giant repeatedly refuses to call her a racist is a telling one, in light of their propensity to call everything else racist for much milder sins. Just this year they decried Derek Chauvin, the man who subdued George Floyd as he died, of being a racist, despite there being no evidence of this whatsoever. Yet Sanger, the author of this and other verified quotes (she gets a lot of false things ascribed to her) does not get labeled with such an ugly word.
Birth Control is not contraception indiscriminately and thoughtlessly practiced. It means the release and cultivation of the better racial elements in our society, and the gradual suppression, elimination and eventual extirpation of defective stocks — those human weeds which threaten the blooming of the finest flowers of American civilization.” 1923 New York Times article. [Editor’s note: Sounds ACTUALLY racist to me…]
This is all just posturing and virtue-twerking, further demonstrating what an awful and evil organization it is. It’s a performance piece designed to ally critics while winking at the true believers, and no one should be fooled by it. [Editor’s note: anyone who is fooled is an ACTUAL racist – and moron.]
