(CNSNews.com)- At a press conference outside the National Portrait Gallery on Thursday, Bishop E.W. Jackson said that Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger “was a white supremacist” and to honor her “is to be complicit in her evil and her racism.”

The press conference brought together a group of black pastors and pro-life leaders who are demanding that the portrait gallery, which is a part of the federally funded Smithsonian Institution, remove a bust of Margaret Sanger.

The bust is featured in the gallery’s “The Struggle for Justice” exhibit, which focuses on historical equal rights achievements in America. Depictions of King and Parks are featured in the exhibit nearby Sanger’s bust.

“The woman was a racist, she was a genocidal figure in America and in human history and to honor her is to be complicit in her evil and her racism,” Jackson said.

“That’s right, if you are honoring Margaret Sanger you are joining together with her in her racist ideology,” he said.

“So she may have never used the term--that is Margaret Sanger--but she was clearly a white supremacist,” he said. “That term is used today as a political weapon often without any facts to back it up. We’ve got facts to back up that Margaret Sanger was a white supremacist.”

“Planned Parenthood is nothing more than a euphemism for Planned Death for the people that Margaret Sanger thought should not exist,” Jackson said.

Jackson is the president of STAND (Staying True to America’s National Destiny). On Thursday, after the press conference, he delivered a petition signed by 14,000 calling for the Smithsonian to remove Sanger’s bust.
