The back of the pamphlet also contains Planned Parenthood’s iconic slogan, “every child a wanted child,” which may stem from the eugenics movement.
Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger, was a staunch eugenicist who held racist affiliations and believed in the elimination of certain groups of people. Sanger, who despised the poor, the sick, the disabled, and immigrants, noted that one of the methods to “weed out the unfit” and breed a “pure” human race is through birth control.
The Birth Control Clinical Research Bureau, which was founded in 1923 by Margaret Sanger as the Clinical Research Bureau, was the first legal birth control facility in the United States. It reunited with the American Birth Control League in 1939 to form the Birth Control Federation of America, which later changed its name to Planned Parenthood Federation of America in 1942.
Although Planned Parenthood today claims that abortion is a “safe” procedure that is necessary to the health and well-being of women, Planned Parenthood of the past recognized what science, health care, and modern technology confirm: abortion kills a human person.
