    Default Katharine Dexter McCormick: Unsung heroine especially amongst feminists

    .
    Be honest, how many among you knew about this so and the huge contribution she made women's contraception.

    .

    80,000 Americans died and 900,000 were hospitalised just two years ago from A(H3N2), why didn't you arseholes call for the total destruction of the world's economic system then? I hope you have plenty of time to ponder over that when you all lose your houses, jobs and relationships!

    A couple of things to keep in mind, Tom.

    Margaret Sanger was a racist (admired by the Hildebeast) who preached eugenics, and the "pill" is linked to cancers and an increase in estrogen flushed into the world's waters. Hormones found in birth control pills alter the genes in fish.

    Naturally, many media outlets have attempted to downplay these facts because the "pill" is the Host in a feminist's Holy Communion. (Fetal blood takes the place of the wine.)

    Many people preached eugenics including HG Wells, John Maynard Keynes, George Bernard Shaw, William Beveridge and Teddy Roosevelt. I hadn't realised you subscribed to the KKK doctrine, aka Kinder, Küche, Kirche.

    I have to admit that I'd never heard of her until recently.

    She liberated a whole generation of women and made many men very happy as well!

    I didn't know of her either but was really impressed that she got a degree from MIT, and in 1904 yet.

    Plus, she put her money where her mouth was when it came to birth control for women.

    Also Henry Ford. Seems like a lot of prominent people from that era supported it. The paragraph below is taken from the link.

    "Other influential eugenicists who fretted over the American protoplasm included grant makers from both the Rockefeller and Carnegie Foundations, U.S. President Calvin Coolidge, David Starr Jordan, the president of Stanford University, psychologist Henry H. Goddard, Senator Henry Cabot Lodge, R-Mass., auto magnate Henry Ford, inventor of the telephone Alexander Graham Bell, botanist Luther Burbank, Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., Robert A. Millikan, a Nobel laureate in physics, novelists Upton Sinclair and Sinclair Lewis, economist William Z. Ripley, birth control advocate Margaret Sanger, advocate for the blind Helen Keller, African-American scholar W.E.B. Dubois, and the creator of the wellness movement, Dr. John Harvey Kellogg."

    Yes there very many on both sides of the political divide. Kellogg was a really strange guy, a true weirdo.
