Produced as an educational unit study and video series for high school students (with a version for college students and adults), Who Was the Real Margaret Sanger? exposes the truth about the founder of the largest abortion provider in the United States.
The first video introduces students to Margaret Sanger and the conditions in society that led her to campaign for birth control. The second video in the series unmasks Margaret Sanger’s twisted ideas of birth control as a method of creating a “better breed” of humanity—an idea which was praised by the Nazis. In the final video, students learn the impact of Sanger’s ideas on society and what they can do to build a culture of life.
Who Was the Real Margaret Sanger? helps students understand the impact of the contraceptive mentality on the decriminalization of abortion, identify the connection between the eugenics movement and the Nazis, and recognize the ties between the sexual revolution and destruction of the feminine genius in society. This dynamic series is a must-have for high school classrooms and students who are serious about combatting the culture of death!
Who Was the Real Margaret Sanger? is divided into three video presentations geared for high school students in history or religion classes or for religious education classes. Package includes complete instructor guide, DVD with the video presentations, and a CD-ROM containing printable student handouts.

The three-part video series entitled Who Was the Real Margaret Sanger? was captivating, visually appealing, and presented the authoritative facts as only American Life League can. Margaret Sanger leaves no question in her own writings where she stood—something the videos highlighted so well. Sanger actually condemned herself by leaving behind her notes, letters, and booklets.

“Excellent incorporation of direct quotes. Students often prefer not to be ‘preached to’ and to come to their own conclusions. This video provides the data for them to do so. Very empowering and informative. We seldom stop to think of how our society’s current views have been influenced by the past.”
—Carrie Maliszewski, High School English Teacher
