The Smithsonian Celebrates... Eugenisist Margaret Sanger?

It’s sad that one person’s icon is another’s mass murderer. One would think the choice would be clear, but when history is disseminated based on political preference, the truth becomes a casualty. ~ Bob Parks ~ Video 

Take for example an exhibition at the Smithsonian celebrating “Women of Our Time”...

In the book accompanying the Smithsonian exhibit, “Women of Our Time: 75 Portraits of Remarkable Women,” Sanger is described as being notable for pursuing her goal of helping women “whose health had been devastated by excessive child-bearing” despite being imprisoned and attacked for advocating birth control. But Sanger, who opened hundreds of birth control clinics across the country, was also well-known for her support of eugenics and abortion.

 

 

 

If taxpayer monies can be used to celebrate a woman who advocated the deaths of those she deemed unworthy and useless, imagine what can happen if the same people who idolize her ideas get a greater hold on funding them.
