If true, she was a maverick for abortion (which I'm not against or for).
It is not true. It's absolutely false. Margret Sanger was never a proponent for abortion. She was a proponent for birth control. More lies and gross fabrications from the Christian right. But, I wouldn't expect anything else from these kinds of people.
“Birth Control is not merely an individual problem; it is not merely a national question, it concerns the whole wide world, the ultimate destiny of the human race. In his last book, Mr. [H.G.] Wells speaks of the meaningless, aimless lives which cram this world of ours, hordes of people who are born, who live, yet who have done absolutely nothing to advance the race one iota. Their lives are hopeless repetitions. All that they have said has been said before; all that they have done has been done better before. Such human weeds clog up the path, drain up the energies and the resources of this little earth. We must clear the way for a better world; we must cultivate our garden.”
"I accepted an invitation to talk to the women's branch of the Ku Klux Klan...I saw through the door dim figures parading with banners and illuminated crosses...I was escorted to the platform, was introduced, and began to speak...In the end, through simple illustrations I believed I had accomplished my purpose. A dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered."

I don't know how you find these gems, but they certainly scream logic in a world full of lies and utter emotional BS.
The tit for tat war we are witnessing is an emotionally based war that will lead to C.O.G. which won't bode well for ANY of us!

The biggest surges in putting up pro-confederacy statues came during the Jim Crow era and the civil rights era.
They were protest statues to begin with. They were made to be removed by a more enlightened culture.
Planned Parenthood is what it is. It's not a flimsy statue of a failed rebellion.

Only if your using the slavery argument, I am using treason...
Slavery is way more shady as slavery was in the north till after the war too...
"Slavery monuments "is a moral argument that should be had in the community without legal ramifications ..
"Treason statues" in the capital is a legal issue that has a very specific legal definition and the confederacy committed treason.
"The left " isn't doing anything , because the left isn't real..
Neither is the right.
All those people do not feel the same way nor carry the same policy positions..
You can say X left wing journalist or politician is advocating X,Y or Z.
But "the left " is what they say when they want to pin one idiots opinion on a whole group of people..
Which is not only done by the right..
