Outrage! Rep. Lowey (D-NY) Defends Eugenics, Margaret Sanger

On Tuesday in the House of Representatives, Congresswoman Nita M. Lowey of New York read an article in defense of Margaret Sanger, eugenicist and founder of Planned Parenthood.

Lowey began by praising Sanger for “her commitment to improving the health and lives of women” and stated that she was “proud to recognize Margaret Sanger for her tireless efforts on behalf of women and for fighting for those unable to fight for themselves.”

However, Margaret Sanger was in actuality a radical eugenicist who despised charities because they allowed the poor to reproduce.  She supported mass coercive sterilization and segregation for those she deemed “feeble-minded” and surrounded herself with some of the most racist figures of the day.

Be sure to read all the details and contact Representative Lowey in this week’s edition of That’s An Outrage!
