The Progressive Moral Reasoning of Margaret Sanger
I discussed some Darwinian-inspired "progressive" moral reasoning in a post two days ago. In this previous post, I provide some quotes from Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, from her 1922 book, The Pivot of Civilization. For example:
Moreover, when we realize that each feeble-minded person is a potential source of an endless progeny of defect, we prefer the policy of immediate sterilization, of making sure that parenthood is absolutely prohibited to the feeble-minded.
I invite you to go see why she thinks providing free medical and nursing facilities to poor mothers is an "insidiously injurious" form of philanthropy, and see how she uses the "colorful" phrase "a dead weight of human waste."
