Last week, I went up to my U.S. History professor after class, asking her if I could read an example of an “A” paper she had graded in the past so I could see an example of what my paper should live up to. Out of ALL the different papers I could have gotten, she gave me one titled "Margaret Sanger and the birth control movement in America". Given my involvement in the pro-life movement, I kind of froze when I saw who the paper was written about.
Not only did this essay I was given by my professor make me cringe, but the woman that had written the article painted Margaret Sanger as if she was a hero! And she definitely was NOT. I already knew this, but the statements I found later from Margaret Sanger herself proved it. Here are 3 statements from none other than the founder of Planned Parenthood herself that shows she is not the kind of woman ANYONE should look up to.
- “The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.”
Excuse me… WHAT?!? I’m pretty sure the most merciful thing you can do for your family does NOT include KILLING one of the infant members!
2. “Birth control is nothing more or less than the facilitation of the process of weeding out the unfit, of preventing the birth of defectives or of those who will become defectives.”
How on earth does this woman have the right to decide who is ‘fit’ and ‘unfit’, and who is considered ‘defective’? No human is defective! EVERY single life has value and meaning, whether or not you have a disability! These comments of hers just keep getting worse…
3. “We do not want 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”
I told you these comments just keep getting worse! Why would anyone want to look up to a women like this?! She was clearly racist! AGAIN… It does not matter what race you are, hispanic, American, African-America, Canadian, Australian…EVERY single life has value and meaning and ALL lives matter!
It is time the world stops looking up to people who say blatantly evil and absurd things like this!
