What Does Planned Parenthood Mean?

Abortion is defined as "nothing more or less than the facilitation of the process of weeding out the unfit, of preventing the birth of defectives or of those who will become defectives."

This is a quote from the 1920 book "Woman And The New Race" by Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood. She was a social Darwinist who believed the social inequities between people represented a natural process by which fit people (successful) rose to the top and unfit (the poor) were eliminated. The philosophy of social Darwinism favored eliminating charity to help the poor and needy because it was just delaying the inevitable weeding out of the unfit.
