Gloria Steinam and the National Organization for Women look at her as a heroine for the feminist movement, Planned Parenthood and all their advocates, as she was the founder are some that see her as a heroine.
Are you sure about that? I suspect that a significant number of the members of Planned Parenthood would despise her if they knew enough about her.
With bothe Sanger and Hitler dead and all their deeds written down in history one is looked at as a villain and the other a heroine.
There are a number of factors involved:
1. More people by far know about Hitler.
2. Hitler killed more people.
You claim they had similar views yet Sanger did not actually gas any Jews. It wouldn't surprise me if there were hundreds of other people with the same views alive today but because they haven't killed anyone they are not labeled as such bad villians as Hitler. Deeds are more important than views when it comes to labeling. Sanger did good deeds, Hitler did bad ones. I believe a number of people have been sainted for deeds they did for the wrong motives.
Of course, if you criticize her you'll be labeled a right wing anti abortion fanatic.
By who? I doubt that any sane person who knows much about here would do such a thing - but there are a lot of insane people in the world.
Just trying to see why her legacy is treated a lot kinder than Hitler's even though they had the same motives - racial purity
Because their legacy's were different even if their motives were the same. I'm sure Hitler would have had a lot better reputation if he had merely forced all the Jews to go on birth control pills.
