The following is from an email blast sent out by Dr. Monique Ruberu. A pro-lifer turned around a sign that featured a quote from the founder of Planned Parenthood. A note written by a disgruntled by one pro-lifer was discovered this morning during the campaign.
Today at the vigil we noticed that one of the signs had tampered with. The sign that had a quote from Margaret Sanger saying “We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population…” was turned the other way…
At first, I thought this was the work of a pro-choice person, but then on reading the note that had been left, I realized this was done by one of us…
So I thought it would be good to just go over a little bit why we chose to put a Margaret Sanger quote on our sign and why we think it’s important for everybody to understand what she believed and to realize that Planned Parenthood still touts her as an amazing leader for women. They even give out an award in her name and have a portion centers such as the one in New York City named after her.
This was a woman who was a huge proponent for abortion for the sole purpose of ending the lives and limiting the population of those that she saw as weak and unfit to be a part of our society. Her active role as a leader in the world of eugenics and her writings are Evidence of these beliefs.
if you do have a question or concern about any of our materials or signs please speak to Pat or me. Our goal is not to upset people but rather to reveal the truth about Planned Parenthood and its founder.
