Margaret InSanger? 6 Symptoms Suggest Planned Parenthood Founder & KKK Speaker Margaret Sanger Suffered from Mental Illness

Margaret InSanger?

6 Symptoms Suggest Planned Parenthood Founder & KKK Speaker Suffered Mental Illness

In her Autobiography, Margaret Sanger tells us "I accepted an invitation to talk to the women's branch of the Ku Klux Klan...I saw through the door dim figures parading with banners and illuminated crosses...I was escorted to the platform, was introduced, and began to speak...In the end, through simple illustrations I believed I had accomplished my purpose. A dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered." (Margaret Sanger: An Autobiography, P.366)

How did Margaret Sanger wind up travelling the country speaking at Ku Klux Klan rallies?

How did an alcoholic and Demerol addict wind up creating, what is today, a multi-billion dollar organization responsible for more deaths than any war in history?

Why did Margaret Sanger have such a deep seeded hatred of blacks, the handicapped and the poor?

Not long ago, I bumped into a good friend who happens to be a highly regarded psychiatrist.  I asked her how it was possible for one person to be as evil as Sanger, and she suggested to me that based on every she now knows about Margaret Sanger, she very likely suffered from a very serious mental illness.  She rattled off a string of reasons a few of which I have researched and listed below.  I am hoping my friend will in the near future publish her own findings on this topic, but for now, just thought I would put this out there for some discussion and scholarly review. 

Looking back at Sanger now, it is quite evident that she suffered from acute mental illness.

According to the Mayo Clinic:

Signs and symptoms of mental illness can vary, depending on the particular disorder and other factors. Mental illness symptoms can affect emotions, thoughts and behaviors. Sometimes symptoms of a mental health disorder appear as physical problems.

Abnormal thinking, behavior and emotions

These types of mental illness signs and symptoms can include:

• Alcohol or drug abuse

• Excessive anger, hostility or violence

• Excessive fears or worries

• Withdrawal from friends and activities

• Sex drive changes

• Confused thinking

There are some excellent biographies on Margaret Sanger out there. has a great The Truth About Margaret Sanger section and the American Life League has a great article posted on EWTN entitled MARGARET SANGER: MOTHER OF THE SEXUAL REVOLUTION .  Also see The Negro Project: Margaret Sanger's Eugenic Plan for Black Americans .

The more you study the life of Margaret Sanger and compare her conduct and behavior with the classic signs and symptoms of Mental Illness, the more convinced you will become that the Founder of Planned Parenthood was absolutely mentally ill.
