Eugenics, race, abortion, all the words are emotive triggers. Useful for advancing discussion and dividing people.
Words are neutral, they have to be in a context, and the intent of the speaker should be considered before a meaning is arrived at.
While many quotes are thrown around as attributed to Margaret Sanger, many of these are skillfully lifted from their context. Books and articles about her, are often slanted to one view or another.
You can read fairly factual accounts about her very public series of lectures, and her personal writings.
You will find that she does not fit into a tidy niche to be exploited by extreme factions of the Abortion Debate.
I love someone doing the digesting of someone’s views for me, it’s work to find out what some one really said, and figure out what they believe.
So… I learned what the Pro Lifers and the Pro Choicers have done to twist this persons views.
I don’t hide that I believe all human life is equally human from conception to the grave. I also know that few people want to kill babies. That white rich guys really don’t want to tell someone what to do with their womb.
MS Sanger , when you look at the lectures and writings she has, leaned away from abortion. Leaned very heavy to prevention of pregnancy. She was a little caught in the prevailing attitudes of the day in regards to race.
I am not in agreement with all of her views, I do want the context of her writings to be presented. Think about reading, for yourself, I know, it’s work.
Dig around Wikipedia for some things she has written, her words are so twisted on each side of the Abortion debate. The real Margaret Sanger is lost in the screaming.
