how sad.

Surprisingly, Planned Parenthood doesn't sell this book written, nevertheless, by their founder… (Check it for yourself: Eugenicist, atheist Margaret Sanger published this book three years before another eugenicist published his--Adolf Hitler. Her book addressed the "lack of balance between the birth-rate of the unfit and the fit" and "how to limit and discourage the over-fertility of the mentally and physically defective." (Hail Hitler!) "Birth Control has been accepted by the most clear thinking and far seeing of the Eugenicists themselves as the most constructive and necessary of the means to racial health. […] Feeble-mindedness in one generation becomes pauperism or insanity in the next." ("Descent of Man," anyone?) "The squalid, unaspiring Irishman multiplies like rabbits […]. The emergency problem of segregation and sterilization must be faced immediately. […] Equality of political power has thus been bestowed upon the lowest elements of our population. […] Remove the moral taboos that now bind the human body and spirit, free the individual from the slavery of tradition […]." In short, the founder of PP was a loony, hence PP's policies today! (Indeed, VERY sad!) NOTICE: Attempts to censor (“Report this”) my comments will be fiercely fought under the aegis of American Libraries’ beloved principles: Freedom of Speech, Freedom to Read, Intellectual Freedom.
