Book Review

Greg, the kids and I are participating in the Vision Forum's literary "conference" that is computer-cast every Thursday night for 6 or 7 weeks. He ordered us the set of books that accompanies the different authors for each week. The following is one of the books...

This book is written by George Grant. Its "a short Biography of Planned Parenthood's founder, Margaret Sanger".

This organization or its founder is something that I have never "studied", read about or even been interested in. It is a well written, concise account of the evils of this organization. She was a firm believer in having a strong race and eliminating, in her opinion, the weaker, inferior races of people. Before anyone objects and claims she took her ideas from Hilter or Stalin, let me assure you that they took some of their ideas from her. Its frightening the extent of the power this organization has and is enjoying charitable Tax-exempt status from the IRS.

This isn't a book about the validity or use of birth control. Its about the background and beginning of a powerful organization. Why they do, what they do and where they choose to do it. Their reasoning is frightening and far reaching.

Katie and I are the only ones that have read this book. And we have both reached the same conclusion.....

Read the book for yourself and see what conclusion you reach. It can be ordered from Vision Forum.


  1. My Daddy has been telling people about this woman for years, so this is something I have heard before ... evil just doesn't describe this organization. I can't say that I would enjoy this book, but I am sure that I would find it interesting.

  2. I have heard and read some things about her but not the whole story. Sounds very enlightening. What a somber read -- but if we don't know then we won't know how to even try to counteract it...

  3. Hi Donna:

    I'm just dropping in after you left that helpful comment on my gardening blog. I've never read this book, but it's important to expose the wickedness of this woman and her agenda of racism and eugenics. I discovered her through research on pro-life. She had Nazi and Ku Klux Klan connections and advocated the extermination of the black race as well and the feeble-minded and advocated free love (she also had an extra-marital affair). Sorry, I don't mean to hijack your comments section, but I feel so strongly about this.

    Here are a couple of quotes from Margaret Sanger, but it only scratches the surface:

    "The most merciful thing that a large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it." Margaret Sanger, Women and the New Race
    (Eugenics Publ. Co., 1920, 1923)

    On marital sex:
    "The marriage bed is the most degenerating influence in the social order," Sanger said. (p. 23) [Quite the opposite of God's view on the matter: "Marriage is honorable in all, and the bed undefiled; but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge." (Hebrews 13:4)
