Journalists ignore Margaret Sanger's eugenic theories

November 03, 2011

When American presidential candidate Herman Cain denounced the eugenicist theories of Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, liberal journalists rose to Sanger’s defense, claiming that Cain had distorted the record. Now Mollie Ziegler Hemingway of GetReligion observes that the journalists themselves were distorting the facts, concentrating on a single isolated statement rather than viewing the entire record of Sanger’s published works, which leave no doubt about her racism and the heavy influence of eugenic theory in her drive to cut down on births among the “lesser” races.
