"Slavs, Latin, and Hebrew immigrants are human weeds ... a deadweight of human waste ... Blacks, soldiers, and Jews are a menace to the race." "Eugenic sterilization is an urgent need ... We must prevent Multiplication of this bad stock."

Margaret Sanger
Birth Control Review
April 1933


"We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal.

We don't want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members."

Margaret Sanger's
letter to Dr. C. Gamble
December 19, 1939


"(Our objective is) unlimited sexual gratification without the burden of unwanted children ... (Women must have the right) to live ... to love ... to be lazy ... to be an unmarried mother ... to create ... to destroy ... The marriage bed is the most degenerative influence in the social order

... The most merciful thing that a family does to one of its infant members is to kill it."

Margaret Sanger
The Woman Rebel,
Volume I, Number 1


"Our failure to segregate morons who are increasing and multiplying ... demonstrates our foolhardy and extravagant sentimentalism ...Philanthropists encourage the healthier and more normal sections of the world to shoulder the burden of unthinking and indiscriminate fecundity of others; which brings with it, as I think the reader must agree, a dead weight of human waste. Instead of decreasing and aiming to eliminate the stocks that are most detrimental to the future of the race and the world, it tends to render them to a menacing degree dominant ... We are paying for, and even submitting to, the dictates of an ever-increasing, unceasingly spawning class of human beings who never should have been born at all."

Margaret Sanger
The Pivot of Civilization
1922.


"There is only one reply to a request for a higher birthrate among the intelligent, and that is to ask the government to first take the burden of the insane and feeble-minded from your back. (Mandatory) sterilization for these is the answer."

Margaret Sanger, October 1926
