Mothers have “no right” to have disabled children, says Planned Parenthood founder

From Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood:

“No matter how much they desire children, no man and woman have a right to bring into the world those who are to suffer from mental or physical affliction. It condemns the child to a life of misery and places upon the community the burden of caring for it, probably for its defective descendants for many generations.”
