Margaret Sanger, the Funder of Planned Parenthood, and her Dubious Past are Once Again at the Center of the Abortion Debate
The leaked draft of a potential overturning of the 1973 landmark Roe v. Wade decision has thrown Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger back into the spotlight.
Following the leaked SCOTUS draft last week, Sanger – a birth control campaigner and nurse who founded what became Planned Parenthood in 1916 – has been mentioned by a number of conservatives on social media.
Sanger’s controversial writings and the resulting outrage over the years prompted Planned Parenthood to denounce her in a New York Times op-ed piece last year.
Sanger’s support of eugenics and her writings promoting racism have long haunted Planned Parenthood.
