This is a very interesting article about the founder of planned parenthood, Margaret Sanger.  Apparently she was a racist and advocated the sterilization of a large number of people.

Wow, she seems like a terrible person based on that article.

Isn't it incredible how, in some cases, something so positive can grow out of someone so negative.

Obviously your idea of positive differs from mine.  According to the article:   "The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Abortion Surveillance report revealed that between 2007 and 2010, nearly 36 percent of all abortions in the United States were performed on black children, even though black Americans make up only 13 percent of our population. A further 21 percent of abortions were performed on Hispanics, and 7 percent more on other minority groups, for a total of 64 percent of U.S. abortions tragically performed on minority groups. Margaret Sanger would have been proud of the effects of her legacy."

As a society we have a lot to be proud of, starting with Roe v Wade, and the subsequent decisions (some of which Planned parenthood played a major role) in allowing women the choice to have an abortion. Kudos to all of us for finally getting our act together.

Sanger sounds like she would be very upset at the progress western society has made towards racial and sexual equality.

In fact, by turning Sanger's program into a force for equality, I would consider it the ultimate way to turn our collective noses up at Margaret Sanger's racist legacy, and all the other racist and sexist people out there.

If you're proud of the fact that black women are five times more likely to have an abortion than a white woman (Hispanic women don't fare much better) than - good for you!  Frankly, I've kind of stopped trying to understand you guys.  The Virginia Governor advocates for infanticide and you really don't hear a peep from the left.  But the left goes nuts over the fact that the same guy put shoe polish on his face 25 years ago.  I don't condone his choice to mock blacks.  But I also find his stance on infanticide appalling.

I’m quite proud to live in a society that allows all women the freedom to choose what to do with their body, the freedom to choose their vote, to own land, and to exist independently of a male’s decision making.

 I’m especially proud that these freedoms are afforded to all nationalities of women, including black and Hispanic women.

And while you may wish only white women had this freedom, and you may wish to confuse abortion with infanticide, what I am most proud of is the fact that civil society has told you, “you are wrong”.

Lol that’s an awfully convenient way to spin being supportive of irresponsible sluts offing their childre....mistakes. Has nothing to do with voting or owning property...

Also, please point out where Mark demonstrated support for laws that only allowed white women to kill their kids...

Another benefit of a free society, is that while vile, unintelligent, and backwards ideas will always exist, the freedom to express those ideas has the peculiar effect of emboldening those who are reasonable and kind against them.

I'm not confusing abortion with infanticide.  You can't change infanticide by calling it "after birth abortion." See https://slate.com/technology/2012/03/after-birth-abortion-the-pro-choice-case-for-infanticide.html
Supporting letting a baby die by dehydration while it's kept "comfortable" doesn't flatter you, LC.
