Skip to comments.Margaret Sanger A Life of Passion
Posted on 12/05/2011 6:40:08 AM PST by artichokegrower
It's not hard to guess where Margaret Sanger found her inspiration. Born in 1879, the mother of birth control was one of 11 children. "My mother died at 48," she wrote in "My Fight for Birth Control." "My father lived to be 80." The latter was a stonecutter, specializing in children's gravestones. The former was a devout Catholic who was pregnant 18 times during her 30-year marriage.
From these beginnings, Margaret Sanger became one of the most important reformers in American history - a woman who by the mid-1900s needed no introduction, certainly not to women desperate for information about how to limit their families. Thousands of them wrote her directly, needing to put nothing more on the envelope than "Margaret Sanger, New York."

So how did humanity make it this far without family licenses?
How are we going to make it in the future if the poorest, least educated among us sqirt out a dozen or so kids (on the taxpayers dime of course) and raise them(on the tax payers dime of course)
See, I am very much a pro-life Christian, but I draw the line at socialism. Don’t you?
Get rid of all entitlement programs. Once that happens people will take the appropriate action on how deal with it.
“Get rid of all entitlement programs.”
Oh very much agreed.
“Once that happens people will take the appropriate action on how deal with it.”
I agree. The very poor, chronically addicted and uneducated will be forced to only have the children they can support. Kind of like the rest of us. We do what we can afford to do and we cringe at the thought of someone else picking up the tab for a decision that we made.
Self reliance is a wonderful thing, reliance upon the Lord is even better, but relying on government to take from a person that “has” and give it to someone that doesn’t just because of poor decision making is not conservative and it darned sure is not American.
It should be people helping people not government helping people.
I completely agree.
