Most Influential Woman

According to Life magazine, the most influential woman of the last century was Margaret Sanger, founder of the abortion mill known as "Planned Parenthood." Consider some of her views compared to the Word of God:

  • "Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate" (Ps. 127:3-5).
  • "The most merciful thing that a large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it."—Sanger
  • "Marriage is honorable in all, and the bed undefiled" (Heb. 13:4).
  • "The marriage bed is the most denigrating influence of social order."—Sanger
She even told her husband William that she needed emancipation from every taint of Christianized capitalism, including the strict bonds of the marriage bed. Margaret Sanger published her first paper called, The Woman Rebel, which had the slogan emblazoned across the masthead, "No Gods! No Masters!" In this paper she wrote: "Birth control appeals to the advanced radical because it is calculated to undermine the authority of the Christian Churches. I look forward to seeing humanity free someday of the tyranny of Christianity no less than Capitalism."

Nothing short of the gospel of Jesus Christ, clearly preach and fully embraced, can reverse the abomination of abortion in our land. This land is defiled and it will not be easily purged. It must begin in each of us with fresh, zealous commitment to the covenant-law of our Lord. It must be sown and cultivated in our homes and in our children. Our church, along with other faithful congregations, must reach out to a desperate and dying world. "In him was life; and the life was the light of men" (John 1:4). "He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life" (1 John 5:12).


  1. Pastor Booth- Would you please reference the LIFE magazine article that this came from? I looked on their website as I wanted to see more of what they said out of curiosity and could not find her as "most influential" or I found her the wrong way. I want to repost this to my blog along with the link. Thanks!

  2. This post came from a sermon I preached several years ago and I didn't footnote this reverence. I think it came from George Grant's book, Grand Illusions, but I could be wrong.
