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.

Could this be the Year of the Haiku?

First of all, a big thank you to Kevin Miller over at the Heart mind and Strength Blog for his plug of the Art Contest: GOT ARTISTIC TALENT (UNLIKE ME)? HELP TELL "THE TRUTH ABOUT MARGARET SANGER" AND THE KKK!

A reader of Kevin's sent in the following:


Nobody has ever accused me of excess creativity, but I did come up with a Margaret Sanger haiku, in two varieties:


Margaret Sanger:
She spoke to the KKK.
Abortion hero.


Margaret Sanger:
fan of the Klan
but not of children in the womb.

Announcing the 3rd Annual Margaret Sanger at the Ku Klux Klan Rally Art Contest

Yes folks, at long last, it is time again for The Margaret Sanger at the Ku Klux Klan Rally Art Contest.

This year's contest will be the 3rd Annual and marks the 81th Anniversary of Margaret Sanger's speech to the Women's Branch of the Silver Lake Ku Klux Klan. In her own 1938 autobiography, Margaret Sanger An Autobiography (1971 reprint by Dover Publications, Inc. of the 1938 original published by W.W. Norton & Company) Sanger indicates at pages 366-367 that the she got along quite well with members of a New Jersey branch of the Ku Klux Klan at her 1926 speech, eventually getting a "dozen invitations to speak to similar groups."

Participants in this year's contest are encouraged to commemorate Sanger at the Klan rally in unique artistic ways. Drawings, cartoons, historical novels, haiku, dance, plays, videos, paintings, quilts, rap, puppetry, modern interpretations of Sanger speaking to the Klan, reenactments of the speech on YouTube, mime, audio recordings of actual Sanger quotes she may have reused when speaking to the Klan - - there is no limit to the artistic ways this historic event can be commemorated. Please note, this year we will not be accepting photoshopped entries.

JUDGES

We are honored this year to have two prestigous bloggers as judges, Jill Stanek and Sean Dailey.

Jill Stanek gained national attention when as a registered nurse at Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn, Illinois, in 1999, she discovered babies were being aborted alive and shelved to die in a soiled utility room. She went public with this news, testified twice before Congress, and her efforts ultimately led to the passage of Born Alive Infants Protection Act. Jill now writes a weekly column for WorldNetDaily in addition to her highly information pro-life blog, Pro-life Pulse.

Sean Dailey is the Editor-in-Chief of the delightful Gilbert Magazine, published by the American Chesterton Society. Sean also maintains the Blue Boar Blog , a blog devoted to G.K. Chesterton, our Lady, home brewing, inns, Distributism, good literature, the lost art of Catholic drinking, and other crucial elements of Catholic culture. As an expert on the wit and wisdom of GK Chesterton, Sean seems ideally suited for the task of judging this year's contest.


The Big Abortion Industry still holds Margret Sanger out as an icon. Artwork is one more important ways to promote the truth about Margaret Sanger.

RULES and REGULATIONS

The rules for this year's contest are simple:

1) Send submissions to the Margaret Sanger Blogspot through the comments section of this blog or by e-mail to Defundabortionguy at hotmail.com.

2) Submissions will be accepted through the month of October with the winners being named on November 1.

3) There is a limit of 12 submissions per person.

4) The art can be any artistic expression (computer drawings, photography, music, poetry, video, audio recording, haiku) as long as it attempts to recreate Margaret Sanger at the KKK Rally.

5) 1st, 2nd and 3rd Place will be announced here on November 1. The comments and views of readers of this blog will be taken into consideration by the judges as well as the views of other respected bloggers.

6) It is our hope and prayer that this contest will be enthusiastically promoted by other bloggers who are free to promote this idea, borrow this idea, steal this idea, or do anything else they want in order to educate the public about the truth concerning Margaret Sanger. It is understood that any entry can be reproduced on this blog and others.

Please encourage others to participate by e-mailing this information to other pro-lifers, bloggers, and artists!!

And if you are wondering what it looked like on that strange day in Silver Lake, here are Sanger's own words describing the Klan Rally:

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.

Contest Update

I will be posting the complete set of rules later today, but I wanted to anounce two major changes to this year's contest.

The first is the addition of two well-known bloggers as judges.

The second change will be a restriction against "photoshopped" entries. This change comes at the request of several readers. In the past, these artistic renderings of Margaret Sanger at the Silver Lake Ku Klux Klan Rally have been confused for the real thing.

The goal of this contest is ultimately to educate not to confuse or deceive. Cartoons or caricutures with actual quotes from the Sanger autobiography would achieve this purpose quite nicely.

Margaret Sanger "was a vocal opponent of racial stereotyping" - No Lie is too Big for Planned Parenthood!

From Nathan Sheets:

Hilarious Pro-Choice Quote of the Day!


"[Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood] was a vocal opponent of racial stereotyping and she worked very hard to eliminate the barriers to health care in the African-American community."—Lizzy Annison, Planned Parenthood Spokeswoman

I suppose that Sanger did, in fact, want to eliminate the barriers to health care for African Americans—by eliminating African Americans!

In Drunken Rage, Atheist Guru Hitchens Bullies Hero of 9-11, Father Rutler

Father Rutler to Christopher Hitchens:

FATHER RUTLER: I have met saints. You cannot explain the existence of saints without God. I was nine years chaplain with Mother Teresa [inaudible]. You have called her a whore, a demagogue. She’s in heaven that you don’t believe in, but she’s praying for you. If you do not believe in heaven, that’s why you drink.

Another very disturbing report concerning that wierd and evil media hero Christopher Hitchens.

Eyewitnesses report that Hitchens erupted into a drunken rage at a recent promotional event for his book. Hitchens reportedly descended from the stage, visibly inebriated, approached a Roman Catholic priest in the audience, and began shouting at him, only inches from his face. Hitchens’ manner appeared so physically menacing, witnesses say, that a plainclothes bodyguard on duty at the event rushed in and escorted the drunken scribe from the room.

We have some exciting news about the upcoming 3rd Annual Margaret Sanger at the Ku Klux Klan Rally ART CONTEST. Look for details and complete rules early next week!

What did it look like that day in Silver Lake, New Jersey nearly 81 years ago?

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.

Rudy, We Hardly Knew Ye

From politicalpoop.com



After he was elected mayor, Giuliani delivered on these campaign promises — and more. His 1994 and 1998 tax returns show $500 in donations to Planned Parenthood, the country’s largest abortion provider. In 1996, the mayor issued a
proclamation declaring it “Planned Parenthood Day” in New York City and praising
the group’s eugenicist founder, Margaret Sanger.

Quote of the week

From Tom O'Toole at Fighting Irish Thomas discussing the Aurora Planned Parenthood lies:


To pro-lifers, those who promote some sad, desperate acts, will eventually (like Planned Parenthood's spiritual founder Margaret Sanger) promote them all. Simply turn your eye to China, where state mandated birth quotas (something Sanger often preached) are not only enforced via abortions, but also through infanticide if the offending child hasn't been detected in time. In China, they sell fetal soup (made from aborted babies) in the finest restaurants and though these eateries (like Planned Parenthood with abortion), no longer advertise the soup openly, it has become something of an expensive delicacy, a "selling point" to their clients of ways and means.

Bishop Samuel J. Aquila Encourages All Priests to Imitate Him by Spending One Hour in Front of Abortion Facility

Found this at Freerepublic.com posted by Wagglebee


Bishop Encourages All Priests to Imitate Him by Spending One Hour in Front of Abortion Facility LifeSiteNews ^ 9/18/07 Matthew Cullinan Hoffman


FARGO, September 18, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Samuel J. Aquila, the Catholic bishop of Fargo, North Dakota, is strongly encouraging his priests to imitate him by praying for an hour in front of an abortion facility during this year's national "Forty Days of Life".

The "Forty Days for Life", which is scheduled to take place from September 26th to November 4th of this year, is a program of pro-life activism modeled on the biblically significant number of forty days, found in both the old and new testaments. According to organizers, churches and organizations in 89 US cities and 33 states have agreed to participate by conducting vigils in front of abortion clinics, praying, and "fasting" in various ways (by giving up something valued). For more information, see http://www.40daysforlife.com/about.cfm.

Bishop Aquila hopes to encourage the participation by all of the faithful in his diocese through his own example and the example of his priests.

"I believe that, during these 40 days, many will readily join in prayer and fasting for an end to abortion in our state," wrote Bishop Aquila in a letter to the priests of his diocese. "That is commendable! But, we as priests must encourage our parishioners to go one step further - to commit to an hour of prayerful vigil at the abortion facility. We can only ask of them what we ourselves will do."

"I have committed to an hour of prayer at the abortion facility September 28, at 10:30 am," he continued. "As your bishop, I ask you to sign up for an hour of prayerful vigil, as well. Tell your parishioners when that hour will be and challenge them to meet or exceed your example. Maybe your parishioners could fill each slot of that particular day with presence from your parish. Maybe the young - youth groups or families - could physically be present while the elderly could be united with them in prayer at your church. Even if only two parishioners join you in your hour of prayer at the abortion facility, lives will be changed and some -- those of the unseen unborn -- may be saved."

Bishop Aquila also leads a prayer service in front of Fargo's only abortion clinic once a year on Good Friday.

Aquila has distinguished himself as an active and committed bishop for many years. During John Kerry's pro-abortion presidential campaign in 2004 he publicly warned "pro-choice Catholics" that they could not receive communion, and "they risk the possibility of hell." In 2005 he mandated that all couples preparing for marriage receive instruction on Catholic doctrines regarding human sexuality and Natural Family Planning, in response to the culture's promotion of contraception and easy divorce.

In addition to the example Bishop Aquila is setting for his priests with his participation in the "Forty Days of Life", he also leads a prayer service front of Fargo's only abortion clinic once a year on Good Friday.

In a press release accompanying his letter, Bishop Aquila declares an absolutely uncompromising commitment to pro-life activism. "Each day people who are active in pro-life efforts pray for those considering abortion, educate the public about the abortion crisis, and do other good works to protect the lives of unborn children," he states. "I commend them and thank them. Those efforts save lives and change hearts. They help to keep abortion numbers low in North Dakota."

"But low numbers are not enough," he continues. "Not even one abortion per week is acceptable. Not one per month. Not one per year. Not one in our lifetime." Quoting the United States Declaration of Independence, the bishop notes, "The dignity of the human person begins at the moment of conception, not at birth. The dignity, as recognized by the signers of the Declaration of Independence, is bestowed by the Creator, and no one has the right to destroy innocent unborn life."

Liberals Lie, Children Die - Great Article by Kevin McCollough

From Townhall.com




At this very moment one of the most liberal organizations in our nation as fraudulent papers before a court in the Midwest awaiting permission to begin the systematic slaughter of innocent children on Tuesday.

Using false pretense, misdirected answers on applications, and fraudulent forms Planned Parenthood is awaiting word to see if it will be allowed to open a super-butchery in Aurora Illinois this coming Tuesday. The situation highlights a new trend for the tax-payer subsidized organization that is now resorting to lying to municipalities and their populations in order to set up shop, hack women's uteruses and slice children's bodies like lunchmeat.


Some of the children just inches from birth.

The way it works is first they set-up a phony name for a phony company. In the Aurora Illinois case they filed their fraudulent permits under the name of Gemini Office Management Corporation. Pretending to be a neutral landlord, they then asserted on the forms requesting the construction permits that the "tenant is unknown."

With the municipality duped, the residents of Aurora feel betrayed. Several reports have emanated from the region demonstrating that even people who do not normally protest abortion publicly are outraged and feel that they have been lied to.

If Margaret Sanger and Adolph Hitler Had a Child



The poor kid, mom was even meaner than dad.

"We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members." Margaret Sanger from Woman's Body, Woman's Right: A Social History of Birth Control in America, by Linda Gordon




And now this was revealed today:

Israeli Doctor Exposes Nazi Abortion Program
Reveals Chilling Parallels with the Ideas of Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger


By Matthew Cullinan Hoffman

September 6, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) - An Israeli doctor has recently published an account of the Nazi use of abortion, euthanasia, and sterilization to eliminate groups they deemed "inferior stock", especially Jewish and Slavic people.

Dr. Tessa Chelouche writes that "Abortion was used as a weapon of mass destruction in Eastern Europe," where "it has been estimated that tens of thousands of Polish and Russian women were compelled to abort not because of health reasons, but because of Nazi dogma." She goes on to quote Hitler's 1942 policy statement on the application of abortion to Slavic people, which is chillingly similar to modern Planned Parenthood propaganda:

"In view of the large families of the Slav native population, it could only suit us if girls and women there had as many abortions as possible. We are not interested in seeing the non-German population multiply…We must use every means to install in the population the idea that it is harmful to have several children, the expenses that they cause and the dangerous effect on woman's health… It will be necessary to open special institutions for abortions and doctors must be able to help out there in case there is any question of this being a breach of their professional ethics."

Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, expressed a similar objective about eliminating US colored people in a letter she wrote only months after Hitler's invasion of Poland: "We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don't want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members."

Today, Planned Parenthood and other international promoters of abortion, sterilization, and contraception, often claim that the availability of such services is a "health issue" and is necessary to fight poverty, echoing Hitler's slogans.

Sainthood for Dr. Jerome Lejeune?

A very moving guest post over at Dawn Eden's Blog:

If motherhood is a vocation, then special motherhood is a call to sanctity. Sanctity is achieved by uphill battles, lonely dark nights, and surprising moments of grace. As Catholics, we are called to help one another, using the great gifts of the Church, the sacraments, the intercession of the Blessed Mother and the Communion of Saints. One such saint is Dr Jerome Lejeune, the French geneticist who identified the chromosomal abnormality known as Trisomy-21 or Down syndrome. He dedicated his life to seeking the cure for Trisomy-21, and working to defend the dignity of our
children against negative public opinion, and the majority of the scientific community who still seek to destroy rather than heal these children. Unborn babies diagnosed with Down syndrome are aborted at the scandalous rate of 90%.

Exciting News from Jill Stanek

According to Jill Stanek , you will not want to miss Hannity's show Sunday night as he taken on the demons at Klanned Parenthood:


Hannity's America to investigate Planned Parenthood


This Sunday, Hannity's America on Fox News Channel will feature an investigation of Planned Parenthood. The show will air 8p CST and 11p CST.

The program's impetus was the Aurora situation and the tremendous uprising against it. But also covered will be PP's other dubious activities. In fact, show producers asked pro-lifers providing background info to keep it quiet until a couple days ago so they could do some digging of PP without it knowing.

The segment is supposed to air about 8:30p CST. It will feature one or more of the Scheidlers, and we hear it will also feature Chicago's own Yvonne Florczak-Seeman, who had five abortions and is now pro-life.

This is not Planned Parenthood's week.

Planned Parenthood and Nazi Eugenics (and Maggie!)

Another great article from Taki's Top Drawer:

This article is excerpted from Salvation is From the Jews, by Roy Schoeman (Ignatius Press, San Francisco: 2004), with the kind permission of the author.

Planned Parenthood and Nazi Eugenics


There is a facile temptation to think of Nazi anti-Semitism as an expression of Christianity and Christian theology—“applied Christianity”, if you will. But even a cursory examination of Nazi writings and policies shows that this is far from the truth—on the contrary, the campaign to exterminate the Jews grew out of the world view of secular materialism, of evolution and the exaltation of the natural over the supernatural, and was in fact an extreme expression of “applied Darwinism.”

In the past there have been many persecutions of the Jews in Christian countries. These persecutions fell into one of three categories. Some were mob actions, inflamed expressions of blood lust and fury. Tragically, many of these were incited by pseudo-Christian exhortations to avenge the death of Christ, or by related blood libels against the Jews (most particularly accusing them of the human sacrifice of Christian children). The pogroms and the rampaging mobs of the Crusades fall into this category. However, the Holocaust does not. The slaughter of the Holocaust was not produced by momentary mob hysteria, but was a calculated, “rational”, long-term campaign plotted by sober, if deranged, minds.

***

At a March 1925 international birth control gathering held in New York City, a speaker warned of the menace posed by the “black” and “yellow” peril. The man was not a National Socialist (Nazi) or a leader of the Ku Klux Klan. The speaker was Dr. S. Adolphus Knopf, a member of Margaret Sanger’s American Birth Control League (ABCL), which along with other groups eventually became known as Planned Parenthood. Another doctor at this conference lamented that preventive medicine was saving the lives of “worthless unfits,” and he seriously suggested that euthanasia be used to “dispose of some of our utterly hopeless dependents,” but noted that this could not happen until the public changed its “prejudices” on the subject…

Elsewhere Sanger spoke of her plan for sterilizing those she designated as “unfit” as the “salvation of American civilization”. And she also spoke of those who were irresponsible and reckless’’, among whom she included those “whose religious scruples prevent their exercising control over their numbers”. She further contended that “there is no doubt in the minds of all thinking people that the procreation of this group should be stopped”. Whether this was to be accomplished “voluntarily” does not appear to have been a serious policy impediment.

Tom Piatek Demolishes Christopher Hitchens

Tommy Piatek(who halis from C-Town) brilliantly demolishes Atheism's #1 buffoon, Chistopher Hitchens, in this must read article:


Hitchens’ Hubris

Posted by Tom Piatak on July 25, 2007

In July 1941, a political prisoner escaped from Auschwitz. As a punishment, ten others were chosen by the Nazis to be killed in a starvation bunker. One of these men, Franciszek Gajowniczek, began lamenting what his death would mean for his wife and children. Upon hearing these cries, another prisoner, a Franciscan friar named Maksymilian Kolbe—who had run afoul of the Nazis after sheltering refugees, including hundreds of Jews, at his friary—volunteered to take Gajowniczek’s place and was sent to the starvation bunker in his stead. In the bunker, Kolbe became the leader of those awaiting death, whom he was often seen consoling and leading in prayers and hymns. Two weeks later, only four of the men were still alive, and Kolbe alone was conscious. The Nazis killed them all; Kolbe was seen calmly giving his arm to the executioner who injected him with carbolic acid. The memory of Kolbe’s courage and selflessness lived on in those who survived the Golgotha of Auschwitz, including Franciszek Gajowniczek, and Kolbe was canonized by John Paul II in 1982.

Christopher Hitchens alludes to Kolbe in his careless and dishonest polemic God is not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything. Hitchens, though unable to bring himself to mention Kolbe by name, claims he was virtually the only Catholic hero of the Holocaust and dismisses him as “a rather ambivalent priest who … had apparently behaved nobly in Auschwitz.”

Quote of the Day: Jeff Rutland at Chirtianity & Culture

Dawn Eden's commentary yesterday has created a rash of blogging about Margaret Sanger. I liked this gem from Jeff Rutland:

The roots, the philosophy, the vision and purpose permanently infect any organization. In the case of Planned Parenthood, it was a grand visionary attempt to get the right people reproducing and stop the wrong people from reproducing. Any guess as to who Miss Sanger believed needed sterilization? Right you are. Blacks were her target along with others.

Jill Stanek Column on Planned Parenthood

New Jill Stanek column on Planned Parenthood, Deception built super-secret abortion clinic - Outrage sparked after Planned Parenthood conceals site ownership


I'm not involved in municipal politics, but it would seem to me bad form for a business to sneak its way into a community by falsifying documents and submitting false testimony in planning meetings.

Yet that's exactly how Planned Parenthood came to build its largest abortion mill in the country in Aurora, IL, soon to be known as the "Auschwitz of America."

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.

Planned Parenthood: So Much for Safe and Rare

I first saw this one over at JillStanek.com . A great cartoon from McRingtail at Right Ringtail










Animal Chaplain meet Jay Anderson

Some interesting thoughts from a self-described Animal Chaplain appeared in the comments box recently. Is it useful to compare dog-fighting and abortion? What do you think?



I think it is a sad commentary that we, as a culture, our using the Vick story to compare "What's worse?" "What's worse", we ask, " carelessly fathering illegitimate children, or dogfighting?". "Dogfighting or rape?" "Dogfighting or racism?" "Dogfighting or hateful nationalism?" "Dogfighting or (fill in the blank)....?"

Dogfighting is one more piece of evidence our country is in need of a spiritual transformation (please note I said spiritual and not necessarily religious). Animals are sentient beings - they feel pain, and they suffer, just like we do. They are not more important, or less important than human beings, but like human beings, they are important, too.

Every major faith teaches its followers to be responsible stewards of animals and the Earth. Please help us get the word out that caring for animals, just like caring for people, is an important part of just being a decent person and citizen. If we make this a priority, there will be no more dogfighting horror stories, and no more pointless comparisons of evils. Let us all rise, together, to be better people than we are today, shall we?

Chaplain Nancy CronkFounder, AnimalChaplains.com




But over at Pro Ecclesia * Pro Familia * Pro Civitate we have Jay Anderson saying this:

... Imagine that. Me? Say something controversial?

Well, here goes:

I do not believe that Michael Vick, disgusting and inhumane as his actions were, should get any prison time. An 18-month suspended sentence with probation, a hefty fine, and something like 1000 hours of community service in a local animal shelter seems to me to be an appropriate penalty.

And frankly, I can't justify a prison sentence for Michael Vick while that thug Ray Lewis is walking around a free man.

Niece of Martin Luther King Jr:: "abortion has done what the Klan only dreamed of."

One Quarter of Black Population Missing from Abortion Genocide Says Dr. Alveda King


Dr. Alveda King, the niece of legendary human rights campaigner, Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., told a meeting of Priests for Life, that the killing of a quarter of the black population of the US has not been from the lynch mobs of her childhood days, but from abortionists, “who plant their killing centres in minority neighbourhoods and prey upon women who think they have no hope."


“The great irony,” she said, “is that abortion has done what the Klan only dreamed of.” King was speaking Sunday at the unveiling of memorials at the Birmingham, Alabama church served by her late father, the Rev. A. D. Williams King.

***

Dr. King pointed out that the killing of the unborn in the US, which has taken the lives of well over 42 million American children, is overwhelmingly concentrated in the African-American community. “In the last forty-plus years,” Dr. King said, “15 million black people have been denied their most basic civil right, the right to life. Roughly one quarter of the black population is now missing.”

The abortion movement’s history is inseparable from that of the eugenics movement that held the genocide of the “dysgenic races” races as a central goal and for which the poor were the “enemies of the people.” In the US, the abortion facilities and offices of Planned Parenthood are concentrated in poor areas where the black population is especially targeted.Margaret Sanger, the foundress of the organisation that eventually became Planned Parenthood, had as her goal the control and subjugation of the poor ethnic peoples including blacks.

Dr. King said, “It's time that we remember the sacrifices of men like my father and my uncle who worked and died so that our children could live.”“It's time to stop killing the future and keep their dream alive.”

If Vick Had Killed Half-Born Babies

A couple great comments from bloggers at the Lew Rockwell Blog. These guys must have been eavesdropping the other night when DefundAbortionGuy had a few buddies over for some Edmund Fitzgerald Porter and cigars. (aka The Chesterbelloc Rountable). Bill Anderson correctly notes:

Michael Vick made the mistake of killing and maiming dogs, and PETA in turn organized marches and protests and generally made his life miserable. However, had Vick been financing an abortion clinic, no doubt he would be a hero in the media.
In fact, had Vick run an abortion clinic where late-term abortions are done, PETA would be organizing marches in his honor and Planned Parenthood would have given him the Margaret Sanger Award. Just some bad choices on his part; he chose to kill dogs rather than people, and he now will pay with his freedom and perhaps his career.


Of course, this is the same Margaret Sanger who called for the "elimination of the Negro race" through eugenics. Perhaps had Sanger had her way, Vick never would have been born. (Of course, Martin Luther King, Jr., in 1966 proudly accepted the Margaret Sanger Award, which I find to be a bit ironic. But, then, Sanger called for the black ministers to help in her eugenics campaign.)

Something is surely wrong with a country that values pit bulls more than unborn children.

We also hit on this point brilliantly explained in this post by Thomas DiLorenzo at the Lew Rockwell Blog:



None of the talking heads on ESPN has defended Michael Vick, of course, and quite a few of their guests have denounced him. There is general agreement there that his treatment of his dogs was barbaric (which it certainly was) and criminal.
But at the same time, ESPN broadcasts all those Sunday morning hunting shows, especially in the fall, where corporate executives dressed like bubbas in coveralls and carrying elephant rifles blow away deer, turkey, pheasants, ducks, and other critters, then pose to have their picture taken with their "prey." I guess animal cruelty is OK with ESPN as long as there's no gamblin' involved. (Not to mention that poor bass that they photograph getting hooked over and over again on those fishing shows).

Is This What Wikipedia Means by "a lecture on birth control?"

The Wikipedia account of Margaret Sanger's speech to the Ku Klux Klan states the following:


"...Sanger even gave a lecture on birth control to the women's auxiliary of the Ku Klux Klan in Silver Lake, New Jersey..."

Below in italics you will see the words of Margaret Sanger as they appear in her Autobiography.

Although no record of what Margaret Sanger actually said at the Klan Rally exists, the words in bold are actual birth control quotes from Margaret Sanger used on other occassions that reflect how Sanger may have lectured on birth control at a Klan Rally.

***************


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.




"Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race."



Margaret Sanger. Woman, Morality, and Birth Control. New York: New York Publishing Company, 1922. Page 12.




"We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don't want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population. and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members."



Margaret Sanger's December 19, 1939 letter to Dr. Clarence Gamble, 255 Adams Street, Milton, Massachusetts.


"Eugenic sterilization is an urgent need ... We must prevent multiplication of this bad stock."



Margaret Sanger, April 1933 Birth Control Review.




"Eugenics is … the most adequate and thorough avenue to the solution of racial, political and social problems."

Margaret Sanger. The Eugenic Value of Birth Control Propaganda. Birth Control Review, October 1921, page 5.




"As an advocate of birth control I wish ... to point out that the unbalance between the birth rate of the 'unfit' and the 'fit,' admittedly the greatest present menace to civilization, can never be rectified by the inauguration of a cradle competition between these two classes. In this matter, the example of the inferior classes, the fertility of the feeble-minded, the mentally defective, the poverty-stricken classes, should not be held up for emulation....On the contrary, the most urgent problem today is how to limit and discourage the over-fertility of the mentally and physically defective. "



Margaret Sanger. "The Eugenic Value of Birth Control Propaganda." Birth Control Review, October 1921, page 5.




"The campaign for birth control is not merely of eugenic value, but is practically identical with the final aims of eugenics."



Margaret Sanger. "The Eugenic Value of Birth Control Propaganda." Birth Control Review, October 1921, page 5.




"Our failure to segregate morons who are increasing and multiplying ... demonstrates our foolhardy and extravagant sentimentalism ... [Philanthropists] encourage the healthier and more normal sections of the world to shoulder the burden of unthinking and indiscriminate fecundity of others; which brings with it, as I think the reader must agree, a dead weight of human waste. Instead of decreasing and aiming to eliminate the stocks that are most detrimental to the future of the race and the world, it tends to render them to a menacing degree dominant ... We are paying for, and even submitting to, the dictates of an ever-increasing, unceasingly spawning class of human beings who never should have been born at all."





Margaret Sanger. The Pivot of Civilization, 1922. Chapter on "The Cruelty of Charity," pages 116, 122, and 189. Swarthmore College Library edition.




"The undeniably feeble-minded should, indeed, not only be discouraged but prevented from propagating their kind."



Margaret Sanger, quoted in Charles Valenza. "Was Margaret Sanger a Racist?" Family Planning Perspectives, January-February 1985, page 44.




"The third group [of society] are those irresponsible and reckless ones having little regard for the consequences of their acts, or whose religious scruples prevent their exercising control over their numbers. Many of this group are diseased, feeble-minded, and are of the pauper element dependent upon the normal and fit members of society for their support. There is no doubt in the minds of all thinking people that the procreation of this group should be stopped."


Margaret Sanger, The Birth Control Review, Gothic Press, pages 172 and 174.

At some point, the crowd of Klanswomen certainly must have broken into a chant of "Maggie! Maggie! Maggie!..." Sanger concludes her account of this event in her Autobiography by noting that her performance earned her twelve invitations from like-minded groups.

In the end, through simple illustrations I believed I had accomplished my purpose. A dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered.

***************


The Wikipedia entry makes Sanger's speech at the Klan Rally sound like a dry public health discussion. But you will note from Sanger's past quotes on birth control that this is not at all how she discussed the topic, and it would certainly be logical to think that she broke out some of her more inflamatory talking points to use on the Klanswomen. The Wikipedia entry also notes that Sanger called it "one of the weirdest experiences I had in lecturing," but it fails to mention that the crowd was "parading with banners and illuminated crosses."

Wikipedia further neglects to mention that after the Klan speech "a dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered ." Yes, Maggie must have really been a hit with the Klanswomen.

Footnote 35 of Amicus Brief in "Webster v. Reproductive Health Services" by Christine Torre, et al.

[The footnote below is from an Amicus Brief filed before the United States Supreme Court. It is notable due to the detestable quotes it contains from Abortionist Edward Allred. At the end of the footnote, Allred's comments are contrasted with those of Planned Parenthood foundress Margaret Sanger. Below the footnote, I have added a quote from Neo-Nazi Tom Metzger and placed it side by side with the comments from Abortionist Edward Allred and Planned Parenthood's Margaret Sanger. ]


http://www.fnsa.org/v1n2/webster2.html

The highly inflammatory remarks attributed by several newspapers to Dr. Edward Allred, owner of the largest chain of abortion clinics in California, had caused some to attribute the abortion deaths of several Black and Hispanic women to racial prejudice.

"On the Edge of the Racist Pit," The Daily Californian, October 14, 1980, at 4B, col. 1. "Doctor Labeled 'Racist' in Abortion Suit," at B-1, col. 1 (describing a $14 million lawsuit filed against Dr. Allred in connection with the abortion death of 16-year-old Patricia Chacon in which it was alleged that Chacon had "received substandard medical treatment as a result of her race and ancestry, rather than medical treatment based on her . . . condition and needs," id. at col. 2, quoting Jack Schuler, attorney for Patricia Chacon's parents).

The following remarks upon which the allegation was made had been attributed to Dr. Allred in a story which appeared in the San Diego Union:

"Population control is too important to be stopped by some right-wing pro-life types. Take the new influx of Hispanic immigrants. Their lack of respect of democracy and social order is frightening. I hope I can do something to stem that tide; I'd set up a clinic in Mexico for free if I could. Maybe one in Calexico would help. The survival of our society could be at stake. . . . The Aid to Families With Dependent Children program is the worst boondoggle ever created. When a sullen black woman can decide to have a baby and get welfare and food stamps and become a burden to all of us it's time to stop. In parts of South Los Angeles having babies for welfare is the only industry the people have."- "Doctor's Abortion Business is Lucrative," San Diego Union, B-1, col. 1 (Oct. 12, 1980).

Dr. Allred's aversion to government subsidies did not prevent him from collecting approximately $3 million in public subsidies in 1980 for performing abortions. Dr. Allred's statements reflect the same philosophy as demonstrated by Margaret Sanger, the founder and heroine of Planned Parenthood when she said "[t]he most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We do not want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members." E. Drogin, Margaret Sanger, Father of Modern Society 33 (1986), citing Gordon, Woman's Body, Woman's Right: A Social History of Birth Control in America 33 (1976).

______________________________________________________________


Neo Nazi Tom Metzger:








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


Abortionist Edward Allred:

Hillary's October Surprise: Pro-life PSA's?

The LA Times recently reported the following:

At a recent presidential forum, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York decried the failure of activists on both sides to work together to bring down the number of abortions. She repeated a mantra her husband made famous more than a decade ago: Abortion, she said, should be "safe, legal and rare."

Then Clinton paused and added deliberately: "And by rare, I mean rare."



So while keeping abortion legal, what steps can Hillary immediately take to help make abortion rare, "and by rare, I mean rare."


If Hillary is serious about making abortion "rare," there are some very serious steps she can take instantly that will reduce the number of abortions very quickly - - all without changing abortion laws.


One model Hillary could follow is the anti-smoking campaign. While cigarette smoking remains legal in this country, much is being done to discourage this behavior. Let's take a look at some of these steps and how they can be applied to making abortion rare.


1) When politicians want to discourage certain behaviors they usually put a tax on them.


Taxing anything reduces demand...this is just simple economics. Abortions usually cost in the range of $800 to $1,000. A 50% tax on abortions would certainly drive down the demand.


A tax on abortions? I know Democrats love taxes, but I don't see Hillary backing this one.


2) Public Service Announcements


We have seen the effectiveness of hip, targeted anti-smoking commercials in reducing teen smoking. Imagine Hillary popping on MTV for a PSA featuring a 3D ultrasound machine, and saying something like, "If you are pregnant and not sure what to do, don't harm this little guy. Get yourself to a crisis pregnancy center where they will treat both you and your unborn child with care and respect. "










Stop for a second and imagine the impact of Hillary sending a message like this to young women. It might not instantly make abortion rare, "and by rare I mean rare," but many lives would be saved.

Can we expect to see this from Hillary? Well, yes, if she was actually sincere about reducing the numbers of abortion.

3) Federally Funded Respect Life Education Campaign

Today, our schools have all kinds of campaigns wholly unrelated to Reading, Writing and Arithmatic. There is DARE teaching kids about the danger of drugs, anti-bullying campaigns, anti-smoking campaigns and all sorts of specials causes.

Certainly, if Hillary wants to make abortion rare, she would be willing to champion a massive federal education campaign in our schools to teach our children to Respect Life.

Such a campaign could use the latest and best medical evidence and technological advancements to call for tolerance, compassion, and mercy toward the least of our brothers and sisters, the unborn. Focused on fetology and the humanity of the unborn, such a campaign would include public service announcements on television and radio as well as billboards throughout the country with a particular focus on inner city neighborhoods where the abortion rate is at epidemic proportions. This information would also be brought into classrooms across the country and a world class prolife curriculum would be developed for children K thru 12.

We know that up to ninety percent of women considering abortion choose life if they are permitted to view the child on an ultrasound. Bring these ultrasound videos into our public schools and make our unborn children the stars of scientific and factual public education campaign.

An ambitious public education campaign focused on the humanity of the unborn child is the least we should expect from a committed progressive like Hillary who, in her own words, wants to make abortion rare, "and by rare I mean rare."

Hillary's Surprising Solution


So does Hillary really want to make abortion rare? All of the above steps can be taken without making abortion illegal, without restricting a women's "right to choose," and without overruling Roe v Wade?

No, this is not what Hillary intends to do. She has another even more surprising solution.

FREE federally funded ABORTIONS !

According to Life Site News:

The advent of socialized health care and massive taxpayer abortion subsidies may take the United States by stealth, unless the new health care bill proposed by Democrats Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY) and Rep. John Dingle (D-MI) is vetoed by President Bush.

Now let's get this straight. If we look again at the anti-smoking campaign, one of the solutions was to drive down demand by making cigarettes more expensive with a cigarette tax.

Would Hillary really claim that she wanted to make smoking rare, "and by rare I mean rare," while at the same time advocating free cigarettes for everyone?

Abortions currently cost between $800 and $1,00 dollars and Hillary is claiming she wants to make abortion RARE while at the same time she is actually working to make them FREE.

So does Hillary really want to make abortion rare or does she actually want to make them free?

Well, if you listen to Clinton's words, you can believe she wants to make abortion rare. But if you look at her voting record, you will realize she wants to make them free and plentiful.

After Ku Klux Klan Speech: A dozen invitations to speak to similar groups

In her autobiography, Margaret Sanger tells us that in 1926 in Silver Lake, New Jersey, she spoke at a Ku Klux Klan rally. Not surprisingly, the made-for-TV movie about Sanger, Choices of the Heart: The Margaret Sanger Story , forgot to mention Maggie's Klan rally speech, but the event has begun to get more attention of late from some commentators.

Rereading Sanger's own account of her Ku Klux Klan speech, one thing really jumped out at me the other day. Here are some of the more relevant passages:

"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..."

"After three hours I was summoned at last and entered a bright corridor filled with wraps. As someone came out of the hall I saw through the door dim figures parading with banners and illuminated crosses. "

"In the end, through simple illustrations I believed I had accomplished my purpose. A dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered. The conversation went on and on, and when we were finally through it was too late to return to New York."

12 invitations to speak to similar groups! That must have been one heck of a speech to our nation's premiere hate group! What could the racist founder of Planned Parenthood possibly have said to inspire such a reaction? How did she engage this hate group so that the "conversation went on and on" late into the night? What were the "simple illustrations " that made this hate group go so ga-ga over Maggie?

Of course, if Margaret Sanger simply repeated some of the things she had said elsewhere, the Ku Klux Klanners would have been puddy in her hands:

"Colored people are like human weeds and are to be exterminated."

"We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don't want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population. and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members."

Yes, a couple of lines like the one's above, and you can imagine the murmur in the crowd as the Ku Klux Klanners whispered to each other things like:

"We really must have her talk at our next Klan rally in Peoria...this lady is phenomenal."

"Oh yes, they will love the way Maggie refers to Negroes as 'human weeds.'"

"My husband will love her...she sounds just like him!"


Given Sanger's long history of racist quotes , it is no surprise "the conversation went on and on" between this racist women and the Ku Klux Klan.

Yes, Maggie must have really brought her "A-game" that night to get 12 additional invitations to similar hate groups.

Since Margaret Sanger was so open about speaking to the Ku Klux Klan and so outspoken about her hatred of Blacks, I am always surprised when critics object to my annual Margaret Sanger at the Ku Klux Klan Rally Art Contest. What can possibly be wrong with depicting Margaret Sanger at a Ku Klux Klan Rally when she openly admits to it in her autobiography? She even refers to the women "parading with banners and illuminated crosses" and describes it as "one of the weirdest experiences I had in lecturing."

Of course, if Sanger had been a conservative Christian, any made-for-TV movie about her life made by Hollywood would necessarily open with Margaret Sanger giving her fiery speech before the adoring women of the Ku Klux Klan with her past racist quotes inserted into her mouth in an attempt to most accurately depict the event. There would be entire books and plays dedicated to the event and elementary school students would learn about it in 4th, 6th and 8th grades.

But since Sanger founded the McDonald's of the abortion industry, Planned Parenthood, the mainstream media, who are just as ga-ga over Maggie and the Klan was, just ignores that magical night in Silver Lake when Maggie cut loose and won the hearts of a hate group. So until Hollywood does its job and tells the true story about Margaret Sanger, our tiny blog will continue with its annual Margaret Sanger at the Ku Klux Klan Rally Art Contest - - so begin preparing now for the 3rd Annual contest in October.

Ron Paul Leads Presidential Poll

Ron Paul currently leads my unscientific presidential poll. I thought it might be interesting to see what friends of The Truth About Margaret Sanger blog thought about the upcoming presidential election. Nine days left to vote and feel free to post comments below about your favorite candidate whether it be Ron Paul, Sam Brownback, Duncan Hunter, Fred Thompson, Mitt Romney, Tom Tancredo or one of the others.

Aside from Ron Paul, Sam Brownback and Duncan Hunter also seem to be running well.

And from Catholics against Rudy, we get this quote from Giuliani:

In the 1990s, Giuliani also spoke at a Planned Parenthood convention and declared a “Planned Parenthood Day” and issued a proclamation honoring eugenist Margaret Sanger.”

Pit Bulls Pull Ahead of Unborn Babies...Will SUV's Be Next?

I knew unborn babies were not too popular with the media, but I never thought I would see the day when Pit Bulls pulled ahead of unborn babies in terms of popularity.






The outcry and public protests due to the mistreatment of pit bulls has been overwhelming. If only unborn humans were loved so much. Where is the outrage when this little fella is killed?



For now, at least, the unborn remain more popular with the media than SUV's.

Vick Dog Fighting Scandal 'Reminds Me of Other Cruelty' Says Dr. Alveda King


Contact: Jerry Horn, Priests for Life, 540-220-0095


ATLANTA, Ga., July 20 /Christian Newswire/ -- Dr. Alveda King, Pastoral Associate of Priests for Life and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., today said that the allegations of animal cruelty announced in the case against star quarterback Michael Vick highlight the disparity in societal protections for animals and unborn humans.


"The appalling cruelty to dogs described in the complaint against Michael Vick immediately reminds me of another kind of cruelty that is not only not punished, but is protected by our authorities," said Dr. King. "I'm talking about the incredible cruelty suffered by babies who are stabbed, have limb torn from limb, or have their skulls crushed in the womb by abortionists. The pain these children endure is undoubtedly excruciating, yet we close our eyes and look the other way in the name of 'choice.'"


'Yes, of course we should ensure humane treatment of animals," said Dr. King, "but shouldn't we also humanely treat humans?"


Priests for Life is the nation's largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit http://www.priestsforlife.org/.

Margaret Sanger to Ku Klux Klan: "Mission Accomplished!"


I couldn't help but think of Margaret Sanger when I saw the above cartoon from Kranky's Cartoons.

If Margaret Sanger were to return today to Silver Lake to speak once again at a Ku Klux Klan Rally where she spoke 81 years ago, she would certainly say "Mission Accomplished!"

*In America today, almost as many African-American children are aborted as are born.

*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.

In fact, many now even refer to the organization that Margaret Sanger founded as Klan Parenthood.

We do not know exactly what Margaret Sanger said at the Silver Lake Klan Rally when she spoke there 81 years ago, but if she could have predicted the devastation her organization would bring upon the Black community, the racists would have gone away very happy.
If the goal of the Ku Klux Klan 81 years ago was to wreak havoc and death upon the African-American community, Margaret Sanger could proudly report today: "Mission Accomplished!"

The Democratic Party's Stealth War on Black Americans

An interesting article at Town Hall... The Democratic Party's Stealth War On Black Americans :

***

Of course, we can’t forget about abortion. Like most black Americans, the Republican Party is staunchly opposed to abortion. But, Democrats don’t see it that way – and don’t kid yourself, part of the reason why Democrats are so rabidly pro-abortion is because they believe it helps lower the number of black Americans. Today, they won’t come out and say that, but Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, was never so circumspect about her motives. From La Shawn Barber, ”More controversial is Sanger’s ‘Negro Project,’ devised in 1939. The eugenicist set out to implicate black ministers and doctors in her efforts to spread her message of contraception, sterilization, and abortion in the black community. ‘The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We do not want the word to get out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it occurs to any of their more rebellious members,’ she wrote.”

Go to http://www.citizenreviewonline.org/special_issues/population/the_negro_project.htm

Say it aint so!:

"In 1926, Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, was a guest speaker at a KKK rally in Silverlake, New Jersey."
(http://www.catholicity.com/commentary/coyne/neonazi.html)

"In fact, she was the guest speaker at a Ku Klux Klan rally in Silverlake, N. J. in 1926"
(http://www.scholarscorner.com/ethics/Anti-Semitism.html)

"In 1926, in what she called "one of the weirdest experiences I had in lecturing", Sanger even gave a lecture on birth control to the women's auxiliary of the Ku Klux Klan in Silver Lake, New Jersey, a group she found so ignorant she had to use only "the most elementary terms, as though I were trying to make children understand."(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Margaret_Sanger)

And go to http://members.cox.net/gaelic/SangerKlan.jpg for an interesting photograph. Let's not "whitewash" history. I sincerly hope I am mistaken and she advocated birth control for KKK members. The friend of my enemy is my enemy.

Margaret Sanger: What did she say to the Ku Klux Klan?

When trying to figure out what Margaret Sanger said when she spoke at the Ku Klux Klan Rally in Silver Lake, one might want to start by reviewing what she said in other venues.

Diane Dew has a pretty good collection of Margaret Sanger quotes that can be seen here:

My guess is that she began her talk at the Ku Klux Klan Rally with something similar to this one:

"We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population," Margarety Sanger said, "if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members." Woman's Body, Woman's Right: A Social History of Birth Control in America, by Linda Gordon
