Wrongly viewed by detractors as a hardcore abortion advocate, Margaret Higgins Sanger (whose American Birth Control League became Planned Parenthood) was more interested in promoting universal access to birth control and adequate care for women concerning pregnancy and sex.
She would go to impoverished neighborhoods in order to educate young women about birth control and her efforts have entirely remade the world we live in, changing views and attitudes on sex. Any woman on the pill can appreciate the independence it gives in one's life. You can volunteer at the PPNYC July 9th from 6 to 8pm.
But what do you think?
