Leading black pro-life activist are upset by the pro-abortion push to place Planned Parenthood founder Marget Sanger on the $20 bill.
In Margaret Sanger’s book, “Pivot of Civilization” she describes African-Americans, and immigrants as “human weeds,” “reckless breeders,” and “spawning… human beings who never should have been born.” However, pro-abortion supporters conveniently forget these words, and her crusade against the poor and minorities, when the praise her as an advocate for women.
Sanger founded what is now the biggest abortion business in the United States but that hasn’t stopped
the group Women on 20’s from trying to replace President Andrew Jackson on the twenty-dollar-bill with a picture of Sanger. In their opinion, Sanger’s an American hero whose helped shaped our countries history.
One of 11 children in a working class family, Margaret Sanger grew up in the time of the Comstock Act, a federal law that defined contraceptives as obscene and criminalized their use and dissemination. While working as a visiting nurse on the Lower East Side of New York City and caring for women who suffered from botched illegal abortions, Sanger decided to fight for legal access to contraceptives for women so they could decide if and when to have children in order to lead healthier, more empowered lives. “Birth control,” she called it.
Now, black pro-life advocates are speaking out and saying no — and here’s a sample of the comments showing how infuriated they are by the idea of honoring Sanger:
Rev. Clenard Childress, president of LEARN Northeast, a national African American organization, sent this comment to Life Dynamics, “This is the most diabolical, racist person of the century why have her on the twenty dollar bill? I think it would be a total disrespect to African Americans and minorities because of her eugenics history.”
Former Miss Delaware, Day Garner was livid, “Margaret Sanger was a despicable woman who believed that the only people worthy of life –be white and perfect,” she said.
“The fact is substantiated by her Negro Project which was specifically designed to infiltrate Black neighborhoods in order to kill off the Black race via sterilization and abortion.”
Gardner became the first black woman to be named a semifinalist in the renowned Miss America Pageant, breaking through numerous racial and stereotypical roadblocks.
Presently, Dr. Gardner is the founder and president of the National Black Pro-Life Union on Capitol Hill.
“Andrew Jackson had a vile view of certain human beings, especially Native Americans,” says Radiance Foundation founder, Ryan Bomberger.
“Liberal activists want to replace someone who advocated “Indian Removal” with someone who advocated the removal of “human weeds”?
“Jackson’s racism was no less repugnant than Margaret Sanger’s thoroughly documented eugenic racism and elitism. Surely there are great American women we can honor who advocated for the elevation, and not the elimination, of other human beings,” Bomberger said.
In her book, “Woman and the New Race,” Sanger argues that because the conditions of large families tend to involve poverty and illness, it is better for everyone involved if a child’s life is snuffed out before he or she has a chance to pose difficulties to its family. She writes, “[We should] apply a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is tainted, or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to offspring.”
Then in Birth Control Review she explains that the purpose of the American Baby Code was to provide for a better distribution of babies and to protect society against the propagation and increase of the “unfit”. Unbelievably, she also argued that women shouldn’t have the legal right to bear a child, and no man shall have the right to become a father, without a permit.
Sanger, unfortunately, has shaped American history by founding Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion business in the country. As LifeNews previously reported, last year the abortion giant celebrated their 96th birthday; and since its inception, they’ve performed over 6.6 million abortions.
Thankfully, Women on 20’s does include honorable women as candidates to replace Jackson on the twenty-dollar-bill, such as, Alice Paul, Rosa Parks and Susan B. Anthony. Click here to vote!
