Margaret Sanger is anything but a Saint!
The farthest thing from a saint is someone who publicly promotes abortion.
A recent book published by Penguin Random House, The Little Book of Feminist Saints, depicts pro-abortion advocates and activists like Cecile Richards, her mother Ann Richards, Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama, former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger and Gloria Steinem as feminist “saints.”1
The promotion of abortion is in direct contradiction with Catholic Doctrine.
What are even worse, are the images that depict these abortion advocates as “saints.” Mocking the way the Church depicts real saints, images of women with halos behind their head and some of them giving a sign of blessing with their right hand.2
Tell Penguin Random House to Pull this Mockery of Real Saints!
This is nothing but a mockery of the Catholic Church and Her saints! How dare Penguin feature pro-abortionists as “saints”.
Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parent has said:
- “But for my view, I believe that there should be no more babies.”
- “The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.”
- “We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population…”
This is not the behavior of a saint!
It is inconceivable that Cecile Richards, who as CEO of Planned Parenthood oversaw 3.5 million abortions, could be portrayed as a saint under the guise of “women’s reproductive rights.”

As a Catholic, I am extremely offended by the blatant mockery of sainthood in a recent book published by your company, The Little Book of Feminist Saints.
This book portrays abortion advocates and activists such as Margaret Sanger, Cecile Richards and other notorious advocates of murder in the womb as “saints.”
The Catholic Church declares saints, those what have practiced a heroic degree of virtue and are worthy of being imitated.
The figures that are mentioned in the book are absolutely not worthy of being imitated as public and notorious advocates of sin.
I strongly ask you cease selling this book.
