Belly of the Beast

Friday, January 12, 2024 @ 07:47 AM Belly of the Beast Lauren Bragg Stand Writer MORE


Let’s take a trip to the belly of the beast.

In this two-part series, I want to more closely acquaint you with the abortion industry, its largest supporters, and the mother of it all, Margaret Sanger.

You might be thinking to yourself, “More closely acquaint? I want to get as far away from it as I can!” But being educated is our greatest weapon of defense. Knowing why you stand against something, not simply regurgitating someone else’s thoughts because maybe you share a political party, is vital to being able to withstand the heat from the other side.

If you follow mainstream news closely, or even if you don’t, chances are you have heard of an organization called Planned Parenthood, a 501(3)(c) nonprofit organization, that boasts to be “America’s most trusted name in sexual health,” operating under the guise of “health care.”

Sure, they offer other services outside of the realm of abortion but do not be deceived. From its beginnings, Planned Parenthood has stood to serve one goal: depopulate the earth starting with minorities.

To understand Planned Parenthood and its mission, we’ve got to go back to September 14, 1879, the day Margaret Louise Higgins, or Margaret Sanger, was born. Sanger was the 6th of 11 children born to her parents, and she attributes her mother’s premature death at the age of 48 to her body being gravely worn from her eighteen pregnancies.

The pinnacle of her life’s work as a women’s reproductive rights activist and eugenicist? The founding of the American Birth Control League (ABCL) in 1916. Founded upon brazenly racist ideals and the wicked goal of depopulation at all costs, the ABCL would later go on to become what we know today as Planned Parenthood.

If Planned Parenthood had a section on its website called “A Word from Our Founder” it would look something like this:

“But for my view, I believe that there should be no more babies." — Interview with John Parsons, 1947.

“The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.” — Woman and the New Race, Chapter 5, "The Wickedness of Creating Large Families." (1920).

"We don’t want the word to get out that we want to exterminate the Negro population." — Letter to Dr. Clarence J. Gamble, December 10, 1939, p. 2.

“I think the greatest sin in the world is bringing children into the world, that have disease from their parents, that have no chance in the world to be a human being practically … Delinquents, prisoners, all sorts of things just marked when they’re born. That to me is the greatest sin that people can commit.” — Interview with journalist Mike Wallace, 1957.

“The most serious evil of our times is that of encouraging the bringing into the world of large families. The most immoral practice of the day is breeding too many children." — Woman and the New Race, Chapter 5, The Wickedness of Creating Large Families. (1920).

“The most urgent problem today is how to limit and discourage the over-fertility of the mentally and physically defective.” — The Birth Control Review, The Eugenic Value of Birth Control Propaganda, p. 5 (1921).

"No more children should be born when the parents, though healthy themselves, find that their children are physically or mentally defective.” — The Birth Control Review, When Should A Woman Avoid Having Children? Nov. 1918, 6-7, Margaret Sanger Microfilm, S70:807.

Sanger was a friend to, rubbed elbows with, and shared the beliefs of Nazis, anti-Semites, and the Ku Klux Klan. She wanted to create a “race of thoroughbreds” and referred to people of color, people with physical and mental disabilities, and anyone who did not fit her criteria for “cleaner race” as a “backlot of human weeds.”

In recent past, Planned Parenthood has made pathetic efforts to denounce their founder’s legacy of racism and eugenics via a Tweet and Facebook post here and there, but it is no coincidence that upwards of 80% of Planned Parenthood locations are located within one mile of predominantly black and hispanic neighborhoods, many even in walking distance according to

Of the 622,108 abortions that were reported in 2021, Planned Parenthood accounted for 374,155 of them. In their own words, “374,155 pregnancies averted.” Because Sanger’s life work and the legacy she left behind, staggeringly, more black babies have died at the hands of an abortionist than the total number of African American deaths from all other causes combined according to the US Center for Disease Control and the Guttmacher Institute.

Dig in. Look at the numbers for yourself, they are devastating.

Maddening, even.

Known and celebrated as a pioneer woman to many, let it be clear: Margaret Sanger was a monster.
