Unearthed Footage Shows Progressive Hero Calling for Ban: ‘No More Babies!’
April 21, 2014 - 8:31 pm
Margaret Sanger, called Margaret Slee in this clip as Slee was her second husband’s name, was founder and first president of Planned Parenthood. Sanger is such an icon on the left today that Planned Parenthood has named an award in her honor, and both Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi have both been awarded it.
The clip is from 1947, just two years after World War II ravaged civilization. The timing is therefore interesting. The world was certainly not overpopulated, not after the Soviet famine, not after the Nazis and the Holocaust.
In the 1947 interview, eugenicist Sanger called for a full ban on all childbearing in the developing world for 10 years.
The clip is among a collection of 85,000 recently uploaded to YouTube by British Pathé.
When Hillary Clinton proudly accepted the Margaret Sanger Award a few year ago, she said: “I admire Margaret Sanger enormously, her courage, her tenacity, her vision, when I think about what she did all those years ago in Brooklyn, taking on archetypes, taking on attitudes and accusations flowing from all directions, I am really in awe of her.”
Pelosi accepted her Margaret Sanger Award in 2014.
