Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, has an award that is often presented in her namesake. Many pro-abortion activists have received this award from Planned Parenthood, including California Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi.
Margaret Sanger, RN. Raised Irish Catholic, she blamed her mother's death on the toll 18 pregnancies had taken on her body. In 1918 she founded the American Birth Control League which later became Planned Parenthood.
#Abortion is founded in eugenics and racism… “[We should] apply a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is tainted, or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to offspring.” —Margaret Sanger, Founder of Planned Parenthood, Woman and the New Race, ch. 6: “The Wickedness of Creating Large Families.”
