The pro-abortion campaign to put Margaret Sanger, the founder of the Planned Parenthood abortion business,s on the $20 bill has failed. Sanger failed to advance to the final found of voting in the effort to place a prominent woman on the currency.

Here’s more on the people hundreds of thousands of Americans moved forward to the final ballot:

The people – 256,659, anyway – have spoken, and the group pushing for a woman to appear on U.S. paper currency has announced its final four to replace Andrew Jackson’s face on the $20 bill.

From 15 contenders in a “robust” five-week “primary round” that ended Sunday, voters selected Eleanor Roosevelt, Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks and Wilma Mankiller, the first female chief of the Cherokee Nation, WomenOn20s said. The competition began with 100 candidates.

The final ballot is open. The group has not yet set a cutoff date to voting, which will be decided within the next couple of weeks, said BarbaraOrtiz Howard, founder of WomenOn20s.

“As in the first round we want to be able to capture the major flood of enthusiasm , but do not want to over linger,” she wrote in an email to USA TODAY. “We had thought we’d just do the first round for Women’s History Month and we kept it going for a bit longer so some schools could be back on line. Alas, everyone’s schedule is different, and we wanted to leave April open for the final.

“If the interest is particularly high there is an outside chance we will keep it open past April,” Howard said.

Sanger has a long history of pushing eugenics and her group, Planned Parenthood, now terminates the lives of hundreds of thousands of babies in abortions every year.

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.

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.
