Who Knew?

Helen Keller, eugenicist:
She was a personal friend and strong admirer of Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, the largest provider of abortions in the country;

She was a strong advocate of birth control and sterilization;

She was a supporter of the eugenics movement, once declaring, in an ironic twist, that: “Our puny sentimentalism has caused us to forget that a human life is sacred only when it may be of some use to itself and to the world.”
(Thanks to Augustine.)
