If you were to ask just about anyone whether a historical figure who was affiliated with the KKK and whose goal in life was to exterminate large segments of the African American population should be given a place of honor in the the nation's most highly-respected historical institution, you would probably get a lot of strange looks.

Well, it turns out that the taxpayer-funded Smithsonian Institute has done just that.

The National Portrait Gallery has put a bust celebrating Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sander in their "Struggle For Justice" exhibit.  The bust stands close to actual American heroes such as Martin Luther King and Rosa Parks--both of whom may not have ever been born had Margaret Sanger succeeded in her goals.

Last week, a group of pro-life activists--largely consisting of black leaders from across the country--gathered in front of the Portrait Gallery to demand that the bust be removed. 

MRCTV spoke to some to the speakers who gave us insight into what Sanger's real motivations were and how those twisted goals facilitated the growth of the modern abortion industry.  Several hecklers interrupted the event to express their love for Sanger and disparage the activists. MRCTV caught up with one of them to find out if she actually knew about the sordid biography of the individual she was vocally supporting.
