Religious parents unthinking, irresponsible, reckless, diseased and feeble-minded

Religious parents are unthinking, irresponsible, reckless, diseased and feeble-minded. People of faith “should not be allowed to bring offspring into the world.”

These opinions came from Margaret Sanger (1879-1966), who founded the Planned Parenthood birth control movement.

Planned Parenthood celebrated its 100th birthday on October 16.

The celebrations drew applause from pro-abortion feminists, praise from President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton and acclaim by Hollywood celebrities.

At the same time, though, a coalition of pro-life groups launched a social media campaign using the hashtag #100YearsofAbuse.

In this, they express their opposition to abortion.

The coalition called the Planned Parenthood celebration “a tragic milestone for our [American] nation and a reminder of the millions of unborn children who will never have a birthday.”

In the last three years they say Planned Parenthood has committed nearly one million abortions in America.

At New York’s Park Theatre on November 18, 1921, Sanger delivered a speech entitled “The Morality of Birth Control.”

In that speech, she divided society into three groups of people:

  • the “educated and informed” class that regulated the size of their families;
  • the “intelligent and responsible” who desired to control their families in spite of lacking the means or the knowledge; and
  • the “irresponsible and reckless people” whose religious scruples “prevent their exercising control over their numbers.” That last group must, she believed, be stopped from producing children.
