Birds of a feather: Pelosi considered perfect candidate for Sanger award

Charlie Butts   ( Thursday, March 27, 2014

Planned Parenthood is presenting its annual Margaret Sanger Award, and a pro-life organization believes this year's recipient is worthy of the award. 

That recipient is U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi, the former House speaker and a liberal California Democrat.

Margaret Sanger founded Planned Parenthood, and Paul Rondeau of American Life League suggests people need to learn more about her and "human weeds" and eugenics.  

"And eugenics was really no more than suppressing the growth of undesirables," says Rondeau. "Human weeds, that was her reference, human weeds, who were not productive. That's how she referred to the poor."


Sanger was a proponent of birth control, too, to prevent people from being born who might be a burden on society and have nothing to give.

Pelosi is a Catholic, and Rondeau suggests she's a "traitor to her church" by declaring herself a "staunch Catholic" while she is the "most violent promoter of killing the next generation, particularly of those 'underserved populations' as they like to say."

That refers to the economically disadvantaged and minority groups, which were also a target of Sanger's version of "compassion." 

Pelosi has been at the forefront of promoting more tax dollars for Planned Parenthood, over a half billion this year.

She also stated in a press conference (see video above) that abortion is sacred to her.

A 1957 interview with Sanger, by Mike Wallace, is below.
