"The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members."
- Margaret Sanger, letter to Clarence Gamble, Dec. 10,1939. - Sanger manuscripts, Sophia Smith Collection, Smith College. (Dec. 10 is the correct date of the letter. There is a different date circulated, e.g. Oct. 19, 1939; but Dec. 10 is the correct date of Ms Sanger's letter to Mr. Gamble.)
"Before eugenists and others who are laboring for racial betterment can succeed, they must first clear the way for Birth Control. Like the advocates of Birth Control, the eugenists, for instance, are seeking to assist the race toward the elimination of the unfit.
Both are seeking a single end but they lay emphasis upon different methods."
-Margaret Sanger, "Birth Control and Racial Betterment." Birth Control Review, February 1919, (vol. III, no. 2); p. 11.
"Those least fit to carry on the race are increasing most rapidly. … Funds that should be used to raise the standard of our civilization are diverted to maintenance of those who should never have been born."

"Today, however, civilization has brought sympathy, pity, tenderness …. We are now in a state where our charities, our compensation acts, our pensions, hospitals, and even our drainage and sanitary equipment all tend to keep alive the sickly and the weak, who are allowed to propagate and in turn produce a race of degenerates."
-Margaret Sanger, "Birth Control and Women's Health." Birth Control Review, December 1917, (vol. I, no. 12); p. 7.

"I visited hospitals in this city, and found them lacking in the simple and most ordinary article of decency. No soap, no cod-liver oil …. This has given rise to skin trouble, and the poor little waifs are a sad, miserable lot. It would be a great kindness to let them die outright, I believe."
-Margaret Sanger. "Women in Germany." Birth Control Review, January 1921, (vol. V, no. 1); p. 9.
