About the Author

Margaret Sanger (1879–1966) was a nurse, sex educator and birth control activist. In 1916 she opened the first birth control clinic in the U.S.; soon after, she was arrested and jailed for distributing contraceptives. She founded the American Birth Control League in 1921 and became the first president of the International Planned Parenthood Federation in 1953. Other works include “What Every Mother Should Know,” “The Case of Birth Control” and “An Autobiography.” --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The essay that got Sanger banned is in this book, as the US (and other) governments
were set on suppressing the effect of venereal disease on unsuspecting wives.

Subsequently the US government circulated this essay to servicemen, without acknowledging,
Sanger as it's source.

Her real sympathy and desire to help women live decent happy lives shines through. Her backing
for eugenics, still widely and secretly backed worldwide as Malthusian effects are overcome by
modern societies, is hotly debated today.

Her frankly cookie schemes for how to isolate the unwanted from
society might make you smile. Except that rumour of similar schemes for the unemployed, being
secretly put in place across America, have gained credence.

You will not be bored reading this book, and like Malthus, Sanger's real goodwill towards her fellow
man and woman cannot be doubted, however much you disagree with her conclusions.
