Carson: Nazis Loved Margaret Sanger

They said "she was a great person"

In an interview with Fox News' Neil Cavuto Wednesday, presidential candidate Ben Carson joined alongside black pro-lifers by condemning abortion conglomerate Planned Parenthood as a genocidal organization founded to abort black babies and "control that population." 

CARSON: Maybe I am not objective when it comes to Planned Parenthood, but, you know, I know who Margaret Sanger is, and I know that she believed in eugenics, and one of the reasons you find most of their clinics in black neighborhoods is so that you can find a way to control that population. I think people should go back and read about Margaret Sanger who founded this place — a woman Hillary Clinton by the way says that she admires. Look and see what many people in Nazi Germany said about her.

CAVUTO: That she was for targeting certain races?

CARSON: That she was a great person.

Carson's harsh condemnation of Planned Parenthood comes in unison with a group of eight black ministers who  penned a letter last week demanding that "all National Portrait Gallery exhibits" remove all forms of founder Margaret Sanger's likeness. 

"Ms. Sanger may have been a lot of things, but a ‘champion of justice’ she definitely was not," the ministers wrote.

Then letter also stated that Sanger only "switched to birth control as a way of controlling the population growth of black people and others" after Americans roundly rejected Eugenics.

Ben Carson's pro-life stance has since been called into question after news broke Thursday he had previously used aborted fetal tissue in a medical research project in 1992.
