This Is An Essay About Margaret Sanger, The Woman Who Strongly Suggested The Use Of Birth Control

735 words - 3 pages

Margaret Sanger was born on September 14, 1879 in Corning, New York. Little did she know that she would soon be the one who would change the lives of women everywhere. Margaret Sanger was thought of to be a progressive and a racist. She also fit in with paternalists and social Darwinists of her time period. Margaret Sanger devoted her life to educating women and making birth control available to all women throughout the world. The increased quality and longevity of many women and children's lives can be attributed to the dedication and hard work of Margaret Sanger.To many people, Margaret Sanger was thought to be a progressive.

Sanger thought to have it so that if a person was not capable of handling natural selection, then they shouldn't have to. Birth control is a way how you could control natural selection. Unfortunately for Sanger, natural selection had a negative effect on her life. Sanger's daughter at age 5 died of pneumonia. This left her weakened and riddled with guilt, but also produced an...
