Format: Paperback
This very short biography (~100 pages) is by Christian author, George Grant. The focus of the biography is the founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger.

As is obvious from the title, this is not a flattering examination of Sanger. Grant is not trying to find common ground on which to dialogue with Sanger fans. Rather, he is presenting an exposé. Grant argues that the appellations often ascribed to Sanger (e.g., reformer, heroine, champion, saint) are tantamount to historical revisionism:

"The 'champion of birth control' and the 'patron saint of feminism' was no less horrific in her disdain for the helpless and the hapless than any of the other monsters of progressivism during the first half of the twentieth century--Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini, and Mao. The only difference is that they have all been duly discredited, while she has not-at least, not yet." (p. 75)

And so the end to which Grant writes his brief biography is that "the proper standing of Margaret Sanger in the sordid history of this bloody century be secured." (pp. 7-8)

Grant presents Sanger as one with nonexistent sexual mores, a promiscuous woman, whose sexual life was outdone only by her intellectual life. Her views on sexual liberation and radical socialism led her down the path of Malthusianism and eugenics so that she "had openly endorsed the euthanasia, sterilization, abortion, and infanticide programs of the early Reich....She even commissioned her friend, Ernst Rudin, the director of the Nazi Medical Experimentation program, to serve the organization as an advisor." (pp. 91-92)

Grant offers several disturbing quotations from Sanger throughout his booklet:

- "The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal.

This book while short, does get across the history behind Margaret Sanger and this story does need to be understood by all trying to understand the issue of abortion in the USA. It does have a lot of footnotes, but I think it could have been far more credible if it used more direct quotes from Margaret's own writings. There were too many instances where a synopsys was written on what she said when a direct quote would have had a far deeper effect for the radical views that she held. The author spends a little too much time expressing opinions on why she was such a bad person when the facts speak for themselves. The author repeatedly uses biblical quotations to support these opinions on her as a person. In a couple of situations, the book repeats information from a prior chapter, leading one to believe the book may have put together fom a series of articles. Altogether it was a good effort but could have been far better with a slightly different approach in the same number of pages.

This short book is a biography of Margaret Sanger, the founder of the organization that was responsible for the deaths of over 30,000,000 children in the United States and about 500,000,000 worldwide. The organization: The Birth Control League which changed its name in 1942 to Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood has tried to make Sanger look like an 'angel' through deceptive propaganda, but Grant tells us the truth in his book and often in Sanger's own words. She was a Marxist, sex crazy, possessed tool of Satan and brought much grief to the world and to herself (she was an unhappy woman for her entire life). She called marriage "a degenerate institution." She called capitalism, "indecent exploitation." Nevertheless, she was married twice (once after she wrote her thoughts on marriage) to two very successful capitalists (one was a multimillionaire) and she did live quite lavishly for most of her adult life. In 1939, she started the Negro Project which was a program designed to fool black ministers and leaders into promoting the abortion of their own people. It was quite successful. Sanger left behind a legacy of dishonesty, sinful behavior and grief.

Her views were just as monstrous as Hitler's, because they came from the same philosophical genetic line of thinking. Her own words condemn her. She indeed targeted the poor and down-trodden of society with the same views as the Third Reich. She saw the black community as hitler saw the disabled of Germany "useless eaters." Read this book to find out what she really believed. Don't just listen to the emotional-laden lies of Planned Parenthood and their misinformed rabble,[..]

I've never seen pro abortionists deal with the real facts concerning Margaret Sanger. The facts are presented in books like "Killer Angel," but they can't "handle" the facts. All they can do is appeal to the emotions-- "Oh the starving children..." etc. So... their solution is that the children are better off dead, than starving! Good argument!? No. Stupid argument -- just an appeal to the emotions. "Starving Children?" "Abused Children?" Why change the argument? No one said that anti-abortionists were pro starvation or pro abuse. What greater abuse can you have than the killing of innocent children? What you actually have is a promoting and philosophical acceptance of, and practice of genocide for convenience-sake. Shame on anyone who would try to defend what Margaret Sanger said and lived for. You may as well try to defend Hitler himself!
