For months, readers have been asking me to do a profile of the life of Margaret Sanger, in order to expose the truth about an evil woman who has been protected for decades by the likes of Planned Parenthood, radical feminists, and various media elites. If you just log on to www.biography.com after reading this editorial, you will see how far some are willing to go to whitewash her reputation, perhaps merely to preserve the ?credibility? of the pro-abortion movement.

Contrary to the wishes of some of my readers, I will not be writing a profile of Sanger?s life now or at any time in the future. That is because my friend Dan Flynn has done it to perfection in his outstanding new book, Intellectual Morons. If the 21-page chapter on Sanger were the only chapter in the book, Flynn?s latest (published by Crown Forum) would be well worth the purchase price. Anyone interested in saving the life of the unborn simply cannot afford to miss Dan?s latest work.

Flynn?s characterization of Sanger as a ?world-class liar? who ?embraced tenets of Nazism, terrorism-and abortion for any reason at any time? sounds harsh at first glance. Regardless, Flynn doesn?t sound harsh for long, because he provides quote after quote to substantiate his allegations. Sometimes he quotes those whose articles Sanger published in The Woman Rebel (TWR).  For example, Flynn quotes a TWR article by Robert Thorpe, opining that ?lower forms of life must give place to higher forms,? in the context of Thorpe?s call for the assassination of John D. Rockefeller.

But, mostly, Flynn directly quotes Sanger, who, for example, advised women to avoid pregnancy by consuming quinine (a medicine used to fight malaria) and laxatives ?to assist with the menstrual flow.? Apparently, in the twisted mind of Margaret Sanger, a bowel movement a day, keeps the baby away. Unfortunately for some unsuspecting women, Sanger?s advice didn?t flush out in the final analysis.

Of course, laughing at Margaret Sanger becomes impossible when one gets into Sanger?s ideas about uprooting ?human weeds? and establishing work camps for the ?unfit.? In 1937, Sanger gave a speech on behalf of those ?too inarticulate to speak for themselves.? In her speech, she said the following about blocking the procreation of so-called undesirables:
