Planned Parenthood Founder: Pro-life?

Have you heard of Margaret Sanger, the eugenicist who kick-started the Planned Parenthood clinics in the US in the early 20s - 30s? This lady came from a Catholic home, and was one of 11 children. Her mother died through cancer and child bearing, and Margaret helped to look after her brothers and sisters.
Here's a picture. She's not bad looking for someone who wreaked such havoc..

I'll bet the photo's been digitally edited.. No one that evil could look that good.

Basically she gave her life to advocating birth control for the aim of creating a 'pure race'. She was all for reducing population, but more than that, she wanted the next generations of people to be bred from healthy, rather than mutant, genes. Poor people and immigrants she described as "..human weeds,' 'reckless breeders,' 'spawning... human beings who never should have been born." in her book Pivot of Civilization. In her own words, she said that the purpose of promoting birth control was to "create a race of thoroughbreds" - (Birth Control Review, Nov. 1921).

Her words have been the basis of a huge movement in eugenics, birth control and abortion.

When reading about her today (on Wiki! Isn't it great?) I found out something that stunned me. As in, I was actually sitting, staring at the university computer screen like a goldfish, with my mouth hanging open most unattractively.
This is the quote I read:
"While there are cases where even the law recognizes an abortion as justifiable if recommended by a physician, I assert that the hundreds of thousands of abortions performed in America each year are a disgrace to civilization." (Women and the New Race, 1920)
The second quote I read was even more amazing...

"To each group we explained what contraception was; that abortion was the wrong way—no matter how early it was performed it was taking life; that contraception was the better way, the safer way—it took a little time, a little trouble, but was well worth while in the long run, because life had not yet begun." (from Marg Sanger's 1938 biography)

A 'disgrace to civilization'! 'Taking life'! Abortion is the 'wrong way'! Our Brave New World has then moved substantially past even Sanger's eugenicist literature and speeches: Every Western society is now killing off their next generations, even though the most basic science screams that abortion is a clever word for murder.

I find it remarkable that a woman who was all for eugenics and birth control, a heroine of pro-abortionists to this day, stopped short of advocating abortion, as she knew what every abortionist knows: abortion ends life.

Tomorrow: discussion on the West's aging population.. (guess why it's aging).

Sanger was anti-abortion during a time when she and her eugenics organizations could permanently sterilize the "UNFIT" - thus no need for abortion. She later accepted abortion as forces sterilization laws became obsolete. I recommend the film- Maafa21 - for a documented look into Sanger's eugenic agenda:

hmm, that's interesting.. But her eugenicist organisations - they never actually sterilized the unfit, did they. They only pushed for it? Thanks, I'll check out the film.
