Modern Day Margaret?

From that great pro-life blogger, Dawn Eden:

Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger had a simple solution to poverty: kill unborn poor children


Her spirit lives in blogger
Radical Mama who, in a post called "Breaking the cycle" [which she has since removed — see update #2 below], boasts of her ongoing attempts to convince a 15-year-old girl to abort against her mother's wishes.


Radical Mama knows the girl, Julia, through the 4-H group to which the teen belonged. "I am trying to think about this [pregnancy] objectively, but I just can’t," the blogger writes. "This is one of my kids. Isn’t this why I volunteer? To prevent this sh-- from happening?"


"This sh--" — e.g. baby — must be prevented, Radical Mama says, for every reason imaginable. Julia was pressured into sex (or so the blogger assumes); she is only 15; her family is poor and her father is an abusive drug addict, etc., etc. Yet, the girl's mother insists that the baby would be welcome — a reaction that has Radical Mama seething with self-righteous fury.


Read the rest here Margaret Sanger is alive and well and living in the blogosphere [UPDATED]



La Shawn Barber has also weighed in on this topic with some great commentary:

The Historian said...

As a historian, I find it incredibly disingenuous the way the far- and Christian right choose to characterize historical figures in such ignorant and ham-handed way. You can try to demonize Margaret Sanger--or reclaim Susan B. Anthony or Thomas Jefferson as right-wing ideologues or what have you--but history does not stand with you.

If Sanger spoke with the KKK women's auxiliary because it was one of the largest social organizations of the time, she obviously did so with some trepidation (as is obvious in the tone of the small sound-bite you and others use) and for an audience who did not really agree with her message of women's liberation through control of their own bodies. In fact, though occasional moderately eugenicist ideas proffer minor superficial likenesses, the viewpoints of such women's groups and of the Nazis and other fascists were in most cases in direct contradiction with Sanger and other sexual liberals of the time.

The conservative 1920s KKK and the later German National Socialists, whether politely listening to Sanger or not, thought that contraception by women was a danger to the moral identity of the state/nation/race. Not unlike you and your comrades, they would rather burn Sanger's books (as the Nazis did later) or ban their mailing in US postal areas (which Sanger successfully fought) than actually admit that it's good for women to control their bodies. So... who's side are YOU really on?
