Birth control IS eugenics.

"One of the outstanding features of the present conference
is...That these two great movements, eugenics and birth control, have now
come together as almost indistinguishable."-Dr. Fairchild and the birth of Planned Parenthood.

y the late 1930s, growing public hostility meant eugenicists and birth
control groups could no longer afford to compete for the dwindling funds from
foundations and wealthy donors. As Gordon notes, "In 1938 rivalry in the
birth control movement was ended with the reunification of Sanger's friends
and enemies in the Birth Control Federation of America (BCFA)."[15]

In January 1940 the BCFA held its annual meeting in New York City. The title
of the symposium, "Race Building in a Democracy," showed little had changed.
The same title was given to a luncheon speech by Henry Fairchild, president
of the American Eugenics Society.

At that meeting, the eugenics movement, tainted by public hostility to their
Nazi-like ideologies, united with the birth controllers. In his speech Dr.
Fairchild noted, "One of the outstanding features of the present conference
is...That these two great movements, eugenics and birth control, have now
come together as almost indistinguishable."[16]

Planned Parenthood was the product of that union. The luncheon at which Dr.
Fairchild spoke also began the 1940 fund drive for "The Citizens Committee
for Planned Parenthood." Birth Control Review noted that the two events would
give "an unusually comprehensive portrayal of the Federation of today and
tomorrow."[l7]

This essay leaves little question about the true nature of Planned Parenthood. Was there ever any doubt?
