A Republican from Idaho is demanding the Smithsonian remove a bust honoring Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood.
Sanger has been criticized for years over her support of eugenics as well as her racially charged comments. For example, the abortion clinic's founder said the government should "give certain dysgenic groups in our population their choice of segregation or sterilization." Sanger also once wrote, "We are paying for, and even submitting to, the dictates of an ever-increasing, unceasingly spawning class of human beings who never should have been born at all."
She has also advocated abortion "when either mother or father suffers from such diseases as tuberculosis, gonorrhea, syphilis, cancer, epilepsy, insanity, drunkenness and mental disorders."
With these things in mind, Rep. Russ Fulcher, R-Idaho, has called for the "troubling" bust of Sanger to be removed from the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C.
