    Post Quotes from Margaret Sanger: American Racialist and Eugenicist

    Margaret Sanger gained worldwide renown, respect, and admiration for founding the American birth control movement and, later, the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, as well as for developing and encouraging family planning efforts throughout the international community.

    "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. Original source: Sophia Smith
    Collection, Smith College, North Hampton, Massachusetts. Also described in
    Linda Gordon's Woman's Body, Woman's Right: A Social History of Birth
    Control in America . New York: Grossman Publishers, 1976.

    "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.

    "Today eugenics is suggested by the most diverse minds as the most
    adequate and thorough avenue to the solution of racial, political and
    social problems.
    "I think you must agree ... that the campaign for birth control is not
    merely of eugenic value, but is practically identical with the final aims
    of eugenics ... Birth control propaganda is thus the entering wedge for the
    eugenic educator.
    "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 feebleminded,
    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.

    "Give dysgenic groups [people with 'bad genes'] in our population
    their choice of segregation or [compulsory] sterilization."
    -- Margaret Sanger, April 1932 Birth Control Review .

    "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. Speech quoted in Birth Control: What It Is, How It
    Works, What It Will Do. The Proceedings of the First American Birth
    Control Conference . Held at the Hotel Plaza, New York City, November 11-
    12, 1921. Published by the Birth Control Review , Gothic Press, pages 172
    and 174.

    "In passing, we should here recognize the difficulties presented by the
    idea of 'fit' and 'unfit.' Who is to decide this question? The grosser,
    the more obvious, the undeniably feeble-minded should, indeed, not only be
    discouraged but prevented from propagating their kind. But among the
    writings of the representative Eugenists [sic], one cannot ignore the
    distinct middle-class bias that prevails."

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

    "There is only one reply to a request for a higher birthrate among the
    intelligent, and that is to ask the government to first take the burden of
    the insane and feeble-minded from your back. [Mandatory] sterilization for
    these is the answer."
    -- Margaret Sanger, October 1926 Birth Control Review .

    "Slavs, Latin, and Hebrew immigrants are human weeds ... a
    deadweight of human waste ... Blacks, soldiers, and Jews are a menace to
    the race."
    "Eugenic sterilization is an urgent need ... We must prevent
    Multiplication of this bad stock."

    That's a rich quote, considering she could pass for a Latin.

    ah ROOOOOIGHT

    Last I checked ... Slavs were white and there is nothing wrong with Soldiers either.

    I guess she would have hated my b/f rofl...

    That quote alone makes her stand out to me in my mind as a nutcase.

    Irish Catholic, eh? Then it makes sense that she'd rail against "...(those) whose
    religious scruples prevent their exercising control over their numbers" *rolls eyes*

    I don't think so.
    Further she seems in favor of women liberation and a REAL WESTERN European identity.

    It's funny really. The attitude show held towards "Slavs and soldiers (?)" is the same attitude the Anglo-Saxons in America held toward the newly arriving Irish hordes.

    and Germans and Polish immigrants

    They were treated the same as the Irish were, and they were all lumped together in a category with negroids for awhile there.

    Well, I'm not saying you're wrong, but it's useful to provide a source when making such a (rhetorical?) claim.

    It is a historical fact that all major White American racialists such as Lothrop Stoddard, Madison Grant, Carlton Putnam, amongst others, thought very little of Slavs (Margaret Sanger was not some exception in her time) the result of their heavy lobbying was the eventual 1924 Immigration Act passed by Congress (an Act that didn't go as nearly far as they wanted, btw). This Act had as its goal the halting of Slav, Latin, and Jewish immigration. (The Irish and Germans were not part of that legislation, and weren't barred from emigrating to the US after the legislation's passage.) Basically, the only people that these American racialists considered of good racial stock and desirable were Anglo-Saxons, Celts, and Germanics. Period. Everyone else was looked down upon as second rate, or worse (see Sanger's quote on Slavs, Latins, and Hebrews).

    "(279) Congress, in the twenties, put an end to the dangerous, turbulent flood of immigrants (14 million between 1900 and 1920) by passing laws setting immigration quotas: the quotas favored Anglo-Saxons, kept out black and yellow people, limited severely the coming of Latins, Slavs, Jews.:

    The more I find out about people like these the less I believe in any kind of union or cooperation between European East and West. Perhaps we are doomed to such a hostility and nothing will ever change it. Of course, it is their right to beleive so and there is nothing I can do about it, but the biggest problem is that it is simple ignorance that causes such an attitude. And even if you try to prove anything with facts it simply doesn't work for people like NP88, she keeps repeating same old **** with a stubborness of a broken record.
    Well, as long as these people stay away from our own lands it doesn't concern me.
