Margaret Sanger's Eugenic Legacy of Death, Disease, Depravity and Racism (the full title wouldn't fit) is a place to discuss issues surrounding the interrelated subjects of Abortion, Eugenics, Ethics, Social Darwinism and the intrinsic value of all Human Life. If you are consider yourself (as Sanger did) to be one of the racially superior "finest Flowers of American civilization", expect to be challenged.

"Birth control is not contraception indiscriminately and thoughtlessly practiced. It means the release and cultivation of the better racial elements in our society, and the gradual suppression, elimination and eventual extirpation of defective stocksthose human weeds which threaten the blooming of the finest flowers of American civilization."
  • "Apostle of Birth Control Sees Cause Gaining Here", The New York Times, 1923-04-08, p. XII.
'It is said that a fish as large as a man has a brain no larger than the kernel of an almond. In all fish and reptiles where there is no great brain development, there is also no conscious sexual control. The lower down in the scale of human development we go the less sexual control we find. It is said that the aboriginal Australian, the lowest known species of the human family, just a step higher than the chimpanzee in brain development, has so little sexual control that police authority alone prevents him from obtaining sexual satisfaction on the streets.' (Sanger, "What Every Girl Should Know" 1920, p. 47).
Eugenics is … the most adequate and thorough avenue to the solution of racial, political and social problems.
"The Eugenic Value of Birth Control Propaganda", October 1921, page 5.

In 1932 Sanger was openly calling for forced Sterilization and/or a lifetime of confinement, in Prison Work Camps for a huge portion of the population, including Negros, ("the lowest known species of the human family, just a step higher than the chimpanzee in brain development") Hispanics, the Poor, the Disabled the Mentally ill and the "feeble minded" a term so broad as to include anyone who disagreed with her.

Here's part of what she called her "Plan for Peace" in 1932

" to apply a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is tainted, or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to offspring. ...

to give certain dysgenic groups in our population their choice of segregation or sterilization.

to apportion farm lands and homesteads for these segregated persons where they would be taught to work under competent instructors for the period of their entire lives.

The first step would thus be to control the intake and output of morons, mental defectives, epileptics.

The second step would be to take an inventory of the secondary group such as illiterates, paupers, unemployables, criminals, prostitutes, dope-fiends; classify them in special departments under government medical protection, and segregate them on farms and open spaces as long as necessary for the strengthening and development of moral conduct.

Having corralled this enormous part of our population and placed it on a basis of health instead of punishment, it is safe to say that fifteen or twenty millions of our population would then be organized into soldiers of defense---defending the unborn against their own disabilities. ..."

We are merely walking down the path that Mrs. Sanger carved for us.

Abortion Survivor Gives Powerful Testimony Before Congress
"How many children have died, and been dismembered, and their parts sold, for our ego, our convenience, and our promiscuity?"

EDIT: I decided to remove the picture of Margaret Sanger speaking to the KKK because it may have been photoshoped. The picture however did illustrate an actual event where Sanger willingly spoke at meeting of the KKK.
