Mike Wallace-Marg. Sanger

a major award                                                 


The Planned Parenthood Federation of America has been protective of Margaret Sanger's reputation and defensive of allegations that she was a racist. They correctly point out that many of the attacks on Sanger come from anti-choice activists who have an interest in distorting both Sanger's work and that of Planned Parenthood. While it is understandable that Planned Parenthood would be protective of their founder's reputation, it cannot ignore the fact that Sanger edited the Birth Control review from its inception until 1929. Under her leadership, the magazine featured articles that embraced the eugenicist position. If Sanger were as anti-eugenics as Planned Parenthood says she was, she would not have printed as many articles sympathetic to eugenics as she did.
Would the NAACP's house organ, Crisis Magazine, print articles by members of the Ku Klux Klan? Would Planned Parenthood publish articles penned by fetal protectionist South Carolina republican Lindsey Graham?

The articled published in the Birth Control Review showed Sanger's empathy with some eugenicist views. Margaret Sanger worked closely with W. E. B. DuBois on her "Negro Project," an effort to expose Southern black women to birth control. Mary McLeod Bethune and Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. were also involved in the effort. Much later, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. accepted an award from Planned Parenthood and complimented the organization's efforts. It is entirely possible that Sanger Ôs views evolved over time. Certainly, by the late 1940s, she spoke about ways to solve the "Negro problem" in the United States. This evolution, however commendable, does not eradicate the impact of her earlier statements.

Full Black Genocide

"See No Evil" - the case of Kermit Gosnell (45 minutes)
This is perhaps to most monstrous man in American history. Kermit Gosnell's (state sanctioned) specialty was aborting black babies.  Hundreds of them. His method included allowing natural birth and then "snipping" the baby's spinal column. As it cried. The most interesting thing about this trial was the absence of news media coverage, save Fox News.  Can you imagine?  They were absent because covering the trial would show Planned Parenthood, and the abortion industry in a bad light.

Ah, Philip Morris! I used to love to smoke their little "Regulars" (the same size as a Camel or Lucky Strike), even though they were already hard to find back when I was smoking 'em.

Counting every time Wallace exhaled smoke, PM got about 20% coverage.
