|Planned Parenthood has finally cut all ties with their founder Margaret Sanger. They are removing her name from a NYC clinic and deleting any praise or recognition of her from their literature.
Sanger was a feminist hero for her pioneering work as a nurse on birth control and sex education at a time when these topics were taboo, especially for women. However, to say that many of her views were “problematic” today would be an understatement. She was a big believer in eugenics and supported forced sterilization for criminals and the mentally and physically disabled. She also gave speeches for the KKK.
Conservatives long chided PP for the awful history of their founder, but up until just 4 years ago PP still defended her and downplayed the criticism. They went mostly silent about her after that, and this week they finally are giving her the Chris Benoit treatment.
