Margaret Sanger official influenced Nazis

An official of Planned Parenthood founder, Margaret Sager, was praised for his Nazi eugenics efforts.

Since World War II, it has been well-documented that Adolf Hitler was profoundly influenced by the American eugenics movement and that many of his government’s racial policies were actually developed from the writings of American eugenicists like Madison Grant and Harry Laughlin.


This is how Life Dynamics introduces Laughlin in their documentary film, Maafa21.

In 1936, Laughlin led an effort to distribute the English-language version of a Nazi eugenics film to audiences in the northeastern part of the United States.

He had acquired the rights to the film from the Race Policy Office of the Nazi Party and, with the help of two other American eugenics organizations, had mailed literature to biology teachers at 3,000 U.S. high schools urging them to show it in their classrooms.

Later that year, Laughlin was praised in a Nazi newspaper and awarded an honorary degree from the University of Heidelberg for his contributions to the Nazi eugenics effort.

  • Even though their science was flawed the government still allowed them to practice and carry out one of the most hateful crimes against humanity and these crimes were not in the best interest of their victims it was to be for the best interest and for the betterment of society, their reasons were not rational, for instance I was part of the NC ‘s Eugenics forced sterilization program I was diagnosed as being feeble minded so they sterlized me at age 14 after I became a victim of rape at 13 and they did it without informed consent , my mother was an alcoholic and was in prison so I became their target and I had my beautiful baby boy , he nor Is mentally challenge and I am 61 years old and is the Executive Director for the Rebecca Project for Justice and my son worked and became a millionaire by the time he was 25 years old so much for their theories flawed science yes mental illness is not inherited.
