    One thought on “Margaret Sanger's Eugenic Legacy: The Control of Female Fertility”

    1. Feminism would do itself and humanity a great deal of good if it would listen to this book. Maiming ourselves does not make us free, neither does sterilizing ourselves so we can be like men. Our bodies natural cycles and offspring are not evil or the enemy of happiness.

    2. The founder of Planned Parenthood was a leading force in the eugenics movement in the early 20th century and an avowed Nazi. You don't believe me? Then read this well researched book and find out the truth.
