The Word is Out About Margaret Sanger, Planned Parenthood and the Ku Klux Klan

We wish to thank all those bloggers who have recently mentioned our blog and in doing so shined light on the racist connections between Maggie Sanger, Klanned Parenthood and the KKK.

Yes, it continues to astonish me that Margaret Sanger can state the following in her autobiography and yet, her racist past is still denied by some:

From Margaret Sanger: An Autobiography, P.366:

Always to me any aroused group was a good group, and therefore I accepted an invitation to talk to the women's branch of the Ku Klux Klan...As someone came out of the hall I saw through the door dim figures parading with banners and illuminated crosses. I waited another twenty minutes. It was warmer and I did not mind so much. Eventually the lights were switched on, the audience seated itself, and I was escorted to the platform, was introduced, and began to speak. .. In the end, through simple illustrations I believed I had accomplished my purpose. A dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered.


And today we have the following situation:

*A black baby is three times more likely to be murdered in the womb than a white baby.

*Since 1973, abortion has reduced the black population by over 25 percent.

*Twice as many African-Americans have died from abortion than have died from AIDS, accidents, violent crimes, cancer, and heart disease combined.

*Every three days, more African-Americans are killed by abortion than have been killed by the Ku Klux Klan in its entire history.

*Planned Parenthood operates the nation's largest chain of abortion clinics and almost 80 percent of its facilities are located in minority neighborhoods.

*About 13 percent of American women are black, but they submit to over 35 percent of the abortions.

And perhaps the most disturbing thing of all is that, according to Stopp Planned Parenthood, this is all done with "over $305.3 million dollars a year of your tax money."

So thanks, fellow bloggers who have helped spread the word. In particular, Jill Stanek and Sean Daily, for agreeing to judge this year's contest. As well as, the wonderful Generations for Life blog, Mark Shea at Catholic and Enjoying It, An Ol' Broad's Rambling, Studeo, Wife and Mom of Two gave us a great plug, as did the very entertaining Lair of the Catholic Cavemen (who calls us "A first rate blog in the best of the bloglodyte tradition. Hard hitting and not afraid to tell it like it is.")

And one blog we almost forgot to mention is the great pro-life blog Modern Commentaries which has been tremendously supportive of our efforts here.

Thank you all, and if I missed anyone, shoot me an e-mail!

Remember, this blog exists for purely educational purposes and everytime someone mentions it, more students, young adults and parents learn about the racist connection between Margaret Sanger, Planned Parenthood, Ku Klux Klan.

SUCH A LOVING MARGARET SANGER
By Bill Haley
October 9, 2007

Such a loving Margaret Sanger
Spoke to the Ku Klux Klan.
You might think they would hang her?
No, they would like her plan.

“Silent death is nice and quiet”,
The Klan began to think.
“We could kill without a riot,
And then they would not stink.”

“How many blacks we will get!”
Margaret’s new Klan thought,
“When we finish, then I bet
They’ll thank us as they ought.”

Such a loving Margaret Sanger
Spoke to the Ku Klux Klan.
You might think they would hang her?
No, they would love her plan.

When she spoke they sat and stared
With mouths opened wide,
They had never thought nor dared
To murder with such pride.

They were freed from their mask,
And the itchy hood.
Now they knew their first task:
To plan your parenthood.

Such a loving Margaret Sanger
Spoke to the Ku Klux Klan.
You might think they would hang her?
No, they will join her plan.

just to let you know...the picture you have up of sanger and the KKK is obviously photoshopped...you can see the edge of the rectangle that surrounds her body under her feet. it doesn't look so good.

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?

Every women has a right to choose if she wants kids or not. Lots of women use different methods of contraception, and yeah, sometimes they fail. Just because your having sex doesn't mean your aiming for kids. Why would you bring a child into the world that's, not wanted, can't be cared for properly, or who's parents are not fit to raise a child?
