“Following Sanger’s training as a nurse, her work alongside labor organizers, anarchists, socialists and other progressives and eventually her devotion to the cause of legalizing contraception,” reports Ross A. Lincoln, “the film examines the risks she took and the impact she had that lasts to the present day.”
Lincoln notes that while Sanger is a hero to progressives, the anti-abortion movement “frequently has taken comments by Sanger about overpopulation out of context to imply racist intent.”
Oh yeah, those racist-sounding comments. In the run-up to it 100th anniversary celebrations, Planned Parenthood and its allies warned supporters to stay woke, as the lies about Sanger would be flying fast and free.
The lies about Margaret Sanger are going to be intense over the next few weeks as PPFA celebrates its 100th anniversary. #staywoke

As Twitchy reported, Planned Parenthood offloaded Sanger’s image makeover for the big centennial to Imani Gandy, also known as @AngryBlackLady, linking repeatedly to her lengthy 2015 essay on Sanger.
Sure, she concludes that “undoubtedly, Sanger held a lot of beliefs that are repugnant to us now,” not to mention that she “made a lot of racist remarks.” Oh, and “Sanger opposed abortion. She believed it to be a barbaric practice,” which doesn’t particularly square with Planned Parenthood’s belief that women should “shout their abortions.”

@Jezebel Disgusting. She was as racist as they come, but that's ok, right? Once again the left idolizes a despicable human being.

They might have to cut Sanger’s appearance at a Klan rally for time, but maybe they’ll offer that as a deleted scene on the Blu-ray. In any case, it’ll be a while until the film comes out, tanks big time at the box office, and then wins numerous awards.
