Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger (via Dawn Eden's blog), from a 1957 interview with Mike Wallace:
WALLACE: Do you believe in sin -- When I say believe I don't mean believe in committing sin do you believe there is such a thing as a sin?
SANGER: I think the greatest sin in the world is bringing children into the world--that have disease from their parents, that have no chance in the world to be a human being practically. Delinquents, prisoners, all sorts of things just marked when they're born. That to me is the greatest sin -- that people can -- can commit..
And for Senator Barack Obama children are a "punishment" if you are responsible for their existence but did not intentionally will them into being. In other words, unless children are desired objects in relation to adult subjects who desire them, then children are punishment. It is difficult to imagine a more dehumanizing way to look at one's offspring, unless one thinks of them as sin. Thus, it should not surprise us that Senator Obama seems to have a warm place in his heart for the late Mrs. Sanger (see here).
