Movie Reviews

The Great American Propaganda Story
Elsie | Central IL | 09/30/2009
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Margaret Sanger -- socialist, eugenicist, atheist, fugivitve from the law, divorcee, sexually promiscuous, racist. Oh, but the movie forgot to mention most of these facts. I guess they didn't want to mix in too much truth and make a movie about the real Margaret Sanger. Sanger said, "Apply a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is already tainted or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to offspring." I didn't hear that quote in the movie, either. I wonder who she would put in charge of choosing which couples were worthy of reproducing? She's the founder of Planned Parenthood, primary provider of the 3 to 5 million abortions that are perfomed in this country every year. Hey, maybe we should have a national holiday to honor her. And think of how many more people would actually be alive to do so if it wasn't for the accomplishments of Margaret Sanger.

It's too bad there's not an option to give a zero star rating. This deserves it."
Glamorises a bigot and baby killer
James M. Dearras | Richmond, VA | 06/03/2008
(1 out of 5 stars)

"She focused her efforts on promoting abortions to the black "race" to eliminate inferiors from our country. Thanks to her efforts, one in two pregnancies in black women end now with infanticide. Certianly no one to look up to."
I Absolutely Loved This Movie!!!
Dudley Delany | Virginia Beach, VA, USA | 08/17/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Starring Dana Delany in one of her most moving performances, this movie dramatizes the inspiring true story of Margaret Sanger, a registered nurse and woman of uncommon valor who championed the reproductive rights of women in the slums of New York City during the early part of 20th century. Spending time in jail for her convictions, she eventually went on to found the organization now known as Planned Parenthood. The presentation was beautifully cast, beautifully written, and beautifully performed. It is an absolute "must see" for anyone interested in the history of women's rights, of nursing, and of health care in general."
