Description: From Wikipedia – Margaret Higgins Sanger (September 14, 1879 – September 6, 1966) was an American birth control activist, sex educator, and nurse. Sanger popularized the term birth control, opened the first birth control clinic in the United States, and established Planned Parenthood. Sanger’s efforts contributed to the landmark U.S. Supreme Court case which legalized contraception in the United States. Sanger is a frequent target of criticism by opponents of birth control and has also been criticized for supporting eugenics, but remains an iconic figure in the American reproductive rights movement.

Review:  This piece has praise for being written in a time where such frank words would have been offensive in polite society. Reading the contents was humorous, astonishing, barbaric, liberating and frightening. Interesting information that makes me glad that I wasn’t born in the early 1900’s.
