Black Pastors Campaign to Remove Racist Planned Parenthood Founder Sanger’s Bust from Smithsonian Museum

A group of black pastors are continuing their campaign to have the bust of racist Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger removed from America’s premier history museum, the Smithsonian in Washington D.C.

We reported earlier this month that the group of pastors gathered to demand that the bust to notorious racist Sanger be removed from public display in the Smithsonian.

But this week that campaign continued with a rally held outside the D.C. museum.

Black pastors and conservative leaders drew a small crowd in front of the National Portrait Gallery Thursday demanding the removal of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger’s bust.

Sanger’s tribute sits in the Smithsonian museum’s “Struggle for Justice” exhibit alongside Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks, a placement that minister and former Republican politician E.W. Jackson called an “outrage” given her support for eugenics.

“If Margaret Sanger had her way, MLK and Rosa Parks never would have been born,” Jackson said.

Jackson held up a bundle of paper containing 14,000 signatures his group Staying True to America’s National Destiny collected in a petition to remove Sanger’s bust.

He cited her role in paving the way for abortion access, noting a racial disparity in the practice. Despite African-Americans making up only 13 percent of the national population, 37 percent of women receiving abortions are black.

“Margaret Sanger would truly be satisfied,” Jackson said.

Sanger created Planned Parenthood in part to eliminate the African American population in the U.S. because she viewed them as useless citizens and moral and sexual deviants.

**UPDATE**

Texas Senator Ted Cruz and Rep. Louie Gohmert have joined this campaign to remove the bust of the racist Sanger.

Cruz and Texas Rep. Gohmert joined Ministers Taking a Stand for a press conference outside the gallery. They’ve circulated a petition that gained 11,000 signatures for Sanger’s removal.
When the museum declined to remove Sanger’s bust, STAND President E.W. Jackson called the response “unserious and disrespectful.”
“Sanger was no hero. Her motive was not to help poor women, but to stop them from having children that she didn’t believe were fit to live,” Jackson said.
