This is the first time I have written on here, so I hope I am doing this right?
Whereas I have always had the understanding that Margaret Sanger was the pioneer of birth control with complete intentions to better the life of women, some people appear to have other views. There is the belief that Sanger was in favor of eugenics; the idea of breeding selectively with hopes to improve the human species. Some believe her Planned Parenthood organization was put in play to restrict certain races and classes within society from reproducing. Margaret Sanger is accused of having the desire to control reproduction by introducing birth control. Multiple people are considered to be "unfit" to reproduce, or at least less fit than others to have children. By trying to have control of who can and cannot reproduce, sometimes it seemed that abortions or birth control was almost forced upon people to make them unable to procreate. Having any intentions of trying to contain "inferior" people is completely ridiculous in my opinion. Because this weeding out occurred as a possibility, obviously controversy has tagged along with it. In reality, I don't believe Margaret Sanger was trying to eliminate other races but rather give women liberation. She was trying to help women and give them sexual freedom.
