Margaret Sanger speaks out against relief

In this passage, Margaret Sanger speaks out against charity, which she calls “relief”:

“Relief, by its very nature is not conservation [of the race]. It may serve a destructive purpose, first by keeping alive the most unfit and encouraging them by federal, state and local aid to multiply their kind.”

Margaret Sanger “Human Conservation and Birth Control” address delivered at Conference on Conservation and Development of Human Resources, Washington DC, March 3, 1938, MSP–SS, p 5

Her belief was that the “unfit” i.e. the poor and disabled, should be allowed to die off for the betterment of the human race.
