Marie Stopes, a contraceptive and abortion pioneer, was in favour of eugenics. This is a beloved trope of anti-abortionists, who argue that everything Planned Parenthood is tainted by this original sin.
There’s logic in deciding you’d rather not give money to Wahlberg and Polanski. Celebrations of those who have passed should be tempered by an acknowledgment of their dark sides. But that doesn’t mean ignoring the good they did.
If Stopes’ views taint the work Planned Parenthood does now (none of which relates to eugenics and the majority of which is nothing to do with abortion) then shouldn’t the same apply to Wells’ and Shaw’s fiction? If Marie Stopes’ views and motives are reason not to work with, or fund, Planned Parenthood, then shouldn’t similar boycotts be targeted against sales and adaptations of War of the Worlds, The Time Machine and My Fair Lady?
