The Best Margaret Sanger Term Paper Resource: Intellectual Morons by Dan Flynn

We are frequently contacted by students inquiring about the best resources for writing a research paper on Margaret Sanger.  Perhaps the best place to start is Dan Flynn's thoroughly researched book, Intellectual Morons, and his 21 page chapter on Margaret Sanger.  Below is Mike Adams' review of the Sanger chapter in  Intellectual Morons

Margaret Sanger: Intellectual Moron
Margaret Sanger:

Intellectual Moron

Written by Mike S. Adams of townhall fame and check out Dan Flynn at the Flynn files

        For months, readers have been asking me to do a profile of the life of Margaret Sanger, in order to expose the truth about an evil woman who has been protected for decades by the likes of Planned Parenthood, radical feminists, and various media elites.  If you just log onto after reading this editorial, you will see how far some are willing to go to whitewash her reputation, perhaps merely to preserve the ''credibility'' of the pro-abortion movement.

         Contrary to the wishes of some of my readers, I will not be writing a profile of Sanger’s life now or at any time in the future.  That is because my friend Dan Flynn has done it to perfection in his outstanding new book, Intellectual Morons.  If the 21-page chapter on Sanger were the only chapter in the book, Flynn’s latest (published by Crown Forum) would be well worth the purchase price.  Anyone interested in saving the life of the unborn simply cannot afford to miss Dan’s latest work.

        Flynn’s characterization of Sanger as a ''world-class liar'' who ''embraced tenets of Nazism, terrorism-and abortion for any reason at any time'' sounds harsh at first glance. Regardless, Flynn doesn’t sound harsh for long, because he provides quote after quote to substantiate his allegations.  Sometimes he quotes those whose articles Sanger published in The Woman Rebel (TWR).   For example, Flynn quotes a TWR article by Robert Thorpe, opining that ''lower forms of life must give place to higher forms,'' in the context of Thorpe’s call for the assassination of John D. Rockefeller.

        But, mostly, Flynn directly quotes Sanger, who, for example, advised women to avoid pregnancy by consuming quinine (a medicine used to fight malaria) and laxatives ''to assist with the menstrual flow.''  Apparently, in the twisted mind of Margaret Sanger, a bowel movement a day keeps the baby away.  Unfortunately for some unsuspecting women, Sanger’s advice didn’t flush out in the final analysis.

        Of course, laughing at Margaret Sanger becomes impossible when one gets into Sanger’s ideas about uprooting ''human weeds'' and establishing work camps for the ''unfit.''  In 1937, Sanger gave a speech on behalf of those ''too inarticulate to speak for themselves.'' In her speech, she said the following about blocking the procreation of so-called undesirables:

“(It) makes possible the spread of scientific knowledge of the elements of sound breeding. It makes possible the creation of a new race; a new generation brought into this world consciously conceived. It makes possible the breeding out of human weeds-the defective and criminal classes-(and) the breeding in of the clean, strong and fit instruments to carry the torch of human destiny.”

        Margaret Sanger’s following two-step plan (which she proposed to the U.S. Congress) to establish a ''Parliament of Population'' is also well-documented in the pages of Intellectual Morons:

1. To ''control the intake and output of morons (apparently excluding Sanger), mental defectives, epileptics.''
2. To ''take an inventory of the secondary group such as illiterates, paupers, unemployables, criminals, prostitutes, dope-fiends; classify them in special departments under government medical protection, and segregate them on farms…''

        Sanger then went on to summarize her plea to Congress by saying that ''fifteen or twenty millions of our population would then be organized into soldiers of defense-defending the unborn against their own disabilities.''

        Sanger also had a pretty negative view of Australian, Jewish, and Italian families.  She called aboriginal Australians ''the lowest known species of the human family, just a step higher than the chimpanzee in brain development.''  She said the following of the ''Jewish people and Italian families'':

“(They) are filling the insane asylums, (they) are filling the hospitals and filling our feeble-minded institutions, (they) are the ones the tax payers have to pay for the upkeep of, and they are increasing the budget of the State, the enormous expense of the State is increasing because of the multiplication of the unfit in this country and in the State.”

        Is it any wonder that Sanger spoke at a KKK rally in 1926?  Is it any wonder that she said that ''The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it''?

        Dan Flynn tells the truth about Margaret Sanger.  And he does it with fairness.  He admits to at least one case where a quote of Sanger has been taken out of context by her enemies in order to accuse her of racism.  But he uses other quotes properly and honestly to show that the accusations are indeed founded.  He does not whitewash Sanger, nor does he smear her reputation unfairly because he disagrees with her politics.

        After you read the whitewashed account of Sanger’s life on, read the truth in Dan Flynn’s new book.  Then call your local Planned Parenthood office and ask the following questions: Are you proud that Margaret Sanger is your founder?  How many black babies do you abort every year?  Is an unborn baby a ''human weed'' or just a sub-human clump of cells?  And, finally, how can you look yourself in the mirror every day before you go to work?

Top Blogger calls out sellout Catholic: Ed Fitzgerald is "Abortion Ken"

Pauli over at Est Quod Est has a great take on the pathetic sellout "Irish" "Catholic" Ed Fitzgerald who is running for some office in Ohio. 


Ed Fitzgerald is "Abortion Ken"

Cuyahoga County Executive Ed Fitzgerald is a "pro-abortion Catholic", a Souper Candidate as my friend Dan Coyne calls such Catholics, and he's making fighting abortion restrictions passed by Ohio lawmakers and signed by Governor Kasich a big part of his 2014 bid for Ohio Governor. Here's proof on his own campaign page. Here's how it starts:

If you care about women’s health, you have to abhor the anti-abortion restrictions inserted into the two-year, $62 billion budget bill that Ohio Gov. John Kasich signed into law.

You really don't need to read any further than that to peg Fitzgerald as pro-abortion. But to leave no shadow of a doubt, Fitzgerald is also proposing a statewide pro-abortion ballet initiative for 2014.

Meanwhile, his presumed Democratic opponent, Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald, recently urged a ballot fight over restrictions on abortion enacted in the new state budget by Republican lawmakers and Mr. Kasich. If successful, that question would appear on the ballot at the same time he and Mr. Kasich will.

Ed FitzGerald turns his back on Catholic upbringing with running mate choice

Great letter to the editor in the Cleveland Plain Dealer concerning the latest abortions for votes sellout, Ed Fitzgerald, who has launched a destined for failure race for governor of Ohio. 

Ed FitzGerald turns his back on Catholic upbringing with running mate choice

Many years ago, the Irish people were given the option of denying their faith in exchange for a bowl of soup. Those who did were called "soupers."

During the campaign for County Executive in 2012, I questioned Ed FitzGerald at the Irish Festival about his stance on the abortion issue and he stated emphatically that he was "pro-life".

Now, with his choice of pro-abortion Sharen Neuhardt as a running mate, it appears that Ed FitzGerald has turned his back on his Catholic upbringing and ingested many bowls of the pro-abortion elixir. It could turn out to be a very unappetizing repast.

"Et tu" Ed FitzGerald!

#BlackHistoryMonth Quiz: Who Said it? Margaret Sanger or the Neo-Nazi?

Who Said It? The Founder of Planned Parenthood Margaret Sanger or Aryan Nation Leader and Neo-Nazi Tom Metzger? Take the Quiz


Margaret Sanger or Aryan Nation Leader Tom Metzger

First some background on our two quotable and notable contestants:

The ADL website provides the following profile of Tom Metzger, leader of White Aryan Resistance:

Tom Metzger, a television repairman from Fallbrook, California, has been a leader in organized bigotry for more than 25 years...He has been widely acknowledged as the principal mentor of the neo-Nazi skinhead movement since its appearance in America during the mid-1980s; in this connection, he attracted nationwide publicity in 1990, when an Oregon jury rendered a $12.5 million judgment against him and his son, John, for inciting the murder of an Ethiopian immigrant by skinheads. Today, although still paying the judgment, Metzger continues to cultivate a following through his monthly newspaper, WAR, White Aryan Resistance, a Web site, a telephone hotline, an e-mail newsletter, and other media.

Margaret Sanger, on the other hand, was the founder of Planned Parenthood. Recently voted one of Time Magazine’s 100 Leaders and Revolutionaries for the 20th Century, she is an inductee into the American Nurses Association Hall of Fame and the National Women's Hall of Fame. Gloria Steinem recently wrote as follows about Ms. Sanger in Time Magazine:

The movement she started will grow to be, a hundred years from now, the most influential of all time," predicted futurist and historian H.G. Wells in 1931. "When the history of our civilization is written, it will be a biological history, and Margaret Sanger will be its heroine."

One is a “heroine” of the 20th Century. The other a modern villain. So the following quiz concerning who said what ought to be easy. Right? Well try your luck and you may be surprised.

Margaret or Metzger?

1. “Negroes and Southern Europeans are mentally inferior to native born Americans”

2. “Since Christianity is in fact a slave religion, it is satirical at least to see the negro adopt a slave religion, after chattel slavery was ended. It simply underlines the fact that consciously or unconsciously, weak humans desire the status of sheep, no matter what they say.”

3. “More children from the fit, less from the unfit."

4. “...apply a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is already tainted, or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to offspring.”

5. "Colored people are like human weeds and are to be exterminated."

6. “Covertly invest into non-White areas, invest in ghetto abortion clinics. Help to raise money for free abortions, in primarily non-White areas. Perhaps abortion clinic syndicates throughout North America, that primarily operate in non-White areas and receive tax support, should be promoted.”

7. "We do not want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten that idea out if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members."

Extra Credit

8. Who was the guest speaker at a Ku Klux Klan rally in Silverlake, N. 1926 and subsequently invited to speak at 12 more KKK rallies, Margaret or Metzger?

9. Which current Civil Rights Leader once stated the following:
"Abortion is black genocide...What happens to the mind of a person and the moral fabric of a nation , that accepts the aborting of the life of a baby without a pang of conscience?"

10. Who is a responsible for the deaths of millions of black Americans?

a. Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger.

b. White Aryan Resistance Leader Tom Meztger

The racist underpinnings of the abortion movement #BlackHistoryMonth

The racist underpinnings of the abortion movement

by Sarah Terzo

March 26, 2013 ( - According to an article in The Daily Caller, African-American teenagers have an abortion rate of over double the national average. Black teenagers (in the 15- to 19-year-old age group) have an abortion rate of 41 per 1,000. The national average is 18 per 1,000 among 15- to 19-year-olds. White teenagers have an abortion rate of 10 per 1,000 women, which means that African-American teenagers are having abortions at a rate that is four times that of white teenagers.
The situation is even more grim in New York. Sixty-seven percent of African-American teenagers’ pregnancies end in abortion in that state. New York has some of the most liberal abortion laws in the country, and one of the highest abortion rates. Forty-one percent of all babies conceived by residents of New York are aborted.
According to New York Archbishop Timothy Dolan:
If 41% of New York babies are aborted, with the percentage even higher in the Bronx and among our African-American babies in the world, it is downright chilling.
The National Black Pro-Life Coalition is an organization that wants to reduce the abortion rate in the African-American population. They claim that abortion providers like Planned Parenthood deliberately place their abortion facilities in areas with large minority populations.
African-American pro-life groups also seek to raise awareness of Planned Parenthood’s racist roots. Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, has a dubious racial record that includes speaking at KKK meetings and permitting racist authors to contribute to her publication. Part of her motivation to legalize birth control was to cut down on births among the “unfit,” which included the black population.
In one of her publications, she said, “Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race” (1).
She plotted to market birth control to the black community in order to lower their birth rate:
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. (2)
The abortion rights movement in the 1960s also sought to use African-American figureheads to push for legalization of abortion. Dr. Bernard Nathanson, who later turned pro-life, was the co-founder of the National Association to Appeal Abortion Laws (now NARAL Pro-Choice America). Nathanson quotes Laurence Lader, his co-founder of NARAL:
We’ve got to keep the women out in front. … And some blacks. Black women especially. Why are they so damn slow to see the importance of this whole movement to themselves? (3)
There is racism among abortion providers also. In 2012, members of the pro-life community were stunned when pro-lifers caught abortionist Ron Virmani on tape saying (see video below):
I as a taxpayer do not wish for these babies to be born, and brought up, and kill those people in Colorado. Go ahead and pay for them, let me see you adopt one of those ugly black babies.

In just a few sentences, Virmani manages to insult the African-American community and promote two racist stereotypes about African-Americans – that they are on welfare and that they are criminals. These disgusting remarks show that he is performing abortions on African-American women in a deliberate attempt to control the African-American population.
Click "like" if you are PRO-LIFE!
Some years ago, another abortionist made the news for similar statements. Dr. Edward Allred owns a chain of abortion clinics called Family Planning Associates. This collection of clinics brings in millions of dollars in revenue for him. He was quoted in the San Diego Union saying the following:
Population control is too important to be stopped by some right wing pro-life types…. When a sullen black woman of 17 or 18 can decide to have a baby and get welfare and food stamps and become a burden to all of us, it’s time to stop. In parts of South Los Angeles, having babies for welfare is the only industry these people have. (4)
These racist remarks show Allred’s contempt for many of the women he aborts. One wonders whether his attitude affects the care that African-Americans receive at his clinics.
One reason why abortions are so high among African-American teenagers is because social workers and counselors sometimes push abortion as a solution to their pregnancies. According to Janet Hadley, a pro-choice feminist:
Among medical professionals and social workers, teenagers are perhaps most likely to encounter people with more liberal views about abortion, and to find themselves on the defensive if they are determined to continue their pregnancies… pregnant women whose cultures or circumstances do not fit … are disapproved of as candidates for motherhood. Tacit disapproval – urging the woman towards abortion and, if she insists on keeping the pregnancy, castigating her for her “irrational” selfishness[.] … Black teenagers, in particular, are singled out by the medical and social work profession as “problem parents[.]” … [O]utright coercion or bullying is hard to prove, but, undoubtedly, young mothers, poor mothers, and above all poor young black mothers are being hustled towards abortion with no respect for their “right to choose.” (5)
While it is impossible to know how widespread the practice of pushing African-American teens to have abortions is, the fact that a pro-choice author sees a problem is a revealing.
Feminists for Life recorded a spokesperson of NARAL making statements that indicate that this phenomenon may be more common than one might think. The American Feminist (a publication of FFL) quoted Nancy White, who was speaking on behalf of NARAL Pro-Choice America, saying:
The 54% of Black children born to unwed mothers are not productive members of society. Teenagers never make good mothers[.] (6)
When social workers and counselors try to steer pregnant African-American teenagers towards abortion because of their own prejudices, it is a violation of the teenagers’ rights. This may be one reason why the African-American teen abortion rate is so high. Pro-lifers need to offer support and positive counseling to young women in the African-American community, and resources to help them have their babies. Many pro-lifers are doing this already. If pro-lifers can counter the racism inherent in the abortion business, more African-American babies will be saved.
