Planned Parenthood and Eugenics

The Blood Money blog reminds us that Planned Parenthood was founded by Margaret Sanger.

Sanger published a book in 1922, called The Pivot of Civilization, in which she echoed all of the sentiments of Malthus. Sanger claimed that there came a point where charity did more harm than good. “Such a point, it seems obvious, is reached when the incurably defective are permitted to procreate and thus increase their numbers.” The elite are then forced to carry what she called “a dead weight of human waste.”
Worth bearing in mind during these 40 Days for Life.
