African-Americans ask "Why did founder of Planned Parenthood get invited to 13 KKK rallies?"


In her autobiography, Margaret Sanger tells us about one of her visits to a Ku Klux Klan rally:

"I accepted an invitation to talk to the women's branch of the Ku Klux Klan...I saw through the door dim figures parading with banners and illuminated crosses...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." (Margaret Sanger: An Autobiography, P.366)

Thirteen invitations to speak to the KKK?  For the founder of Planned Parenthood?  Why was she such a popular speaker with the Klan?  What kind of racist, bigot gets invited to 13 Ku Klux Klan rallies?

Well, the highly respected Black journalist, Lucky Rosenbloom, thinks he knows why.

Here is how Lucky explains it:

What do you suppose Margaret Sanger was talking about that made her so appealing to the KKK? I believe she was talking about killing 14 million Black babies. I suppose she was telling them of a way to kill four thousand “Ns” in four weeks using eugenics and abortions outdoing the number of “Ns” they lynched in 86 years…Planned KillerHood was targeted by Civil Rights Movement activists in the 1960s and ‘70s for its involvement in a ”Black genocide.” Since 1973, legalized abortion has been specifically aimed at the African American population and has killed more Black people than cancer, diabetes, heart disease and gang violence combined…This is a sad day for Black America. We are killing ourselves using the most racist, legalized tools today: abortions.” ~ Black Journalist Lucky Rosenbloom

Was Lucky overreacting?  Well, listen to what this former Ku Klux Klan and White Aryan Resistance leader, Tom Metzger, has to say:

“Covertly invest into non-White areas, invest in ghetto abortion clinics. Help to raise 
money for free abortions, in primarily non-White areas. Perhaps abortion 
clinic syndicates throughout North America, that primarily operate in 
non-White areas and receive tax support, should be promoted.”

Metzger's dream sounds a lot like Sanger's dream Planned Parenthood .

"There is a striking kinship between our movement and Margaret Sanger's early efforts. She, like we, saw the horrifying conditions of ghetto life. Like we, she knew that all of society is poisoned by cancerous slums. Like we, she was a direct actionist — a nonviolent resister. She was willing to accept scorn and abuse until the truth she saw was revealed to the millions. At the turn of the century she went into the slums and set up a birth control clinic, and for this deed she went to jail because she was violating an unjust law. Yet the years have justified her actions. She launched a movement which is obeying a higher law to preserve human life under humane conditions. Margaret Sanger had to commit what was then called a crime in order to enrich humanity, and today we honor her courage and vision; for without them there would have been no beginning. Our sure beginning in the struggle for equality by nonviolent direct action may not have been so resolute without the tradition established by Margaret Sanger and people like her. Negroes have no mere academic nor ordinary interest in family planning. They have a special and urgent concern."

- Martin Luther King, Jr., "Family Planning — A Special and Urgent Concern" (May 1966)
