Margaret Sanger 2

The issues with woman having a lot of children in the 1920. Margaret Sanger believed in planed parenthood she believed in this for to main reason women who had a lot of children often had a lot of health issues some woman could not bear to have another baby because of there health she believed that with planed parenthood women could gain some control of their lives some women had so many children that they could not feed or clothe or educate them. The women who were the least fit had the most children. Even though she believed in planed parenthood she did not believed in abortion because if you had birth control you should not have to worry about have a lot of children. These issues relate today because women still use birth control to reduce the amount of children they have

In her own WORDS

In her own WORDS | Margaret Sanger & Women's Contraception: | Scoop.it

Annotation: Here is a couple of topics and what she thinks about them. Her opinion on those topics are good and some to make sense. She talks about things that most people don't pay attention to.  What she want is for people to pay more attention to these topics.

 

 

On blacks, immigrants and indigents:
"...human weeds,' 'reckless breeders,' 'spawning... human beings who never should have been born." Margaret Sanger, Pivot of Civilization, referring to immigrants and poor people

 

On sterilization & racial purification:
Sanger believed that, for the purpose of racial "purification," couples should be rewarded who chose sterilization. Birth Control in America, The Career of Margaret Sanger, by David Kennedy, p. 117, quoting a 1923 Sanger speech.

 

On the right of married couples to bear children:
Couples should be required to submit applications to have a child, she wrote in her "Plan for Peace." Birth Control Review, April 1932

 

On the purpose of birth control:
The purpose in promoting birth control was "to create a race of thoroughbreds," she wrote in the Birth Control Review, Nov. 1921 (p. 2)

 

On the rights of the handicapped and mentally ill, and racial minorities:
"More children from the fit, less from the unfit -- that is the chief aim of birth control." Birth Control Review, May 1919, p. 12

 

On religious convictions regarding sex outside of marriage:
"This book aims to answer the needs expressed in thousands on thousands of letters to me in the solution of marriage problems... Knowledge of sex truths frankly and plainly presented cannot possibly injure healthy, normal, young minds. Concealment, suppression, futile attempts to veil the unveilable - these work injury, as they seldom succeed and only render those who indulge in them ridiculous. For myself, I have full confidence in the cleanliness, the open-mindedness, the promise of the younger generation." Margaret Sanger, Happiness in Marriage (Bretano's, New York, 1927)

 

On the extermination of blacks:
"We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population," she said, "if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members." Woman's Body, Woman's Right: A Social History of Birth Control in America, by Linda Gordon

 

On respecting the rights of the mentally ill:
In her "Plan for Peace," Sanger outlined her strategy for eradication of those she deemed "feebleminded." Among the steps included in her evil scheme were immigration restrictions; compulsory sterilization; segregation to a lifetime of farm work; etc. Birth Control Review, April 1932, p. 107

 

On adultery:
A woman's physical satisfaction was more important than any marriage vow, Sanger believed. Birth Control in America, p. 11

 

On marital sex:
"The marriage bed is the most degenerating influence in the social order," Sanger said. (p. 23) [Quite the opposite of God's view on the matter: "Marriage is honorable in all, and the bed undefiled; but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge." (Hebrews 13:4)

 

On abortion:
"Criminal' abortions arise from a perverted sex relationship under the stress of economic necessity, and their greatest frequency is among married women." The Woman Rebel - No Gods, No Masters, May 1914, Vol. 1, No. 3.

 

On the YMCA and YWCA:
"...brothels of the Spirit and morgues of Freedom!"), The Woman Rebel - No Gods, No Masters, May 1914, Vol. 1, No. 3.

 

On the Catholic Church's view of contraception:
"...enforce SUBJUGATION by TURNING WOMAN INTO A MERE INCUBATOR." The Woman Rebel - No Gods, No Masters, May 1914, Vol. 1, No. 3.

 

On motherhood:
"I cannot refrain from saying that women must come to recognize there is some function of womanhood other than being a child-bearing machine." What Every Girl Should Know, by Margaret Sanger (Max Maisel, Publisher, 1915) [Jesus said: "Daughters of Jerusalem, weep... for your children. For, behold, the days are coming, in which they shall say, Blessed (happy) are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the breasts which never gave suck." (Luke 23:24)]

 

"The most merciful thing that a large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it." Margaret Sanger, Women and the New Race (Eugenics Publ. Co., 1920, 1923)

Margaret Sanger on Working Women

Margaret Sanger on Working Women | Margaret Sanger & Women's Contraception: | Scoop.it

Annotation: She saids that women should express their freedom. They should do what they want and if they want to take birthcontrol its their choice. Because having kids was hard back then, because they had to do work and couldn't take care of kids. I also think it is the right of a women if she wants to take this or not its all her choice. They may not have time to take care of kids if they have to work full time.

 

 

 

 

 

"The Woman Rebel" told the Working Woman that there is no freedom for her until she has this knowledge which will enable her to say if she will become a mother or not. The fewer children she had to cook, wash and toil for, the more leisure she would have to read, think and develop. That freedom demands leisure, and her first freedom must be in her right of herself over her own body; the right to say what she will do with it in marriage and out of it; the right to become a mother, or not, as she desires and sees fit to do; that all these rights swing around the pivot of the means to prevent conception, and every woman had the right to have this knowledge if she wished it. . .
I resolved, after a visit to France, where children are loved and wanted and cared for and educated, to devote my time and effort in giving this information to women who applied for it. I resolved to defy the law, not behind a barricade of law books and technicalities, but by giving the information to the workers directly in factory and workshop...

Paragraph 1

Paragraph 1 | Margaret Sanger & Women's Contraception: | Scoop.it

Margret Sanger During the 1920s Margret Sanger came up with birth control clinics to distribute the birth control. Margret Sanger wanted to do this because around the 1920s women were having many babies. Women were getting sick because they were having so many babies. She got the word around in two ways. She gave out and made pamphlets. Second she provided clinics for women. Clinics offered counseling, birth control information and supplies to dozens of women from the borough's Brownsville section. Although birth control was helping people were against the idea of birth control. Margret went to jail for the idea of clinics. Because at the time people were against it and women’s right didn’t matter as much. After all these years birth control is still around and useful today. Today we also don’t look as birth control as a bad thing. This is still around because of Margret Sanger.

Archbishop Hayes on Birth Control

Archbishop Hayes on Birth Control | Margaret Sanger & Women's Contraception: | Scoop.it

Annotation: There were wise men there that did help her. But I didn't mean that they would listen to her. That they left all of the responsibility on her and only her. I think its not right to leave it all to her. And she just want to do what she feels right.

 

 

 

"I merely want to point out the situtaion I found when I entered the battle. One the one hand, I found the wise men, sages, scientists, discussing birth control among themselves. But their ideas were sterile.... I might have taken up a policy of safety, sanity and conservatism--but would I have got a hearing? And as I became more conscious of the vital importance of the idea, I felt myself in the position of one who has discovered that a house is on fire; and I found that it was up to me to shout out the warning. The tone of the voice may have been indelicate and unladylike...but this very gathering...is ample proof that intelligent and constructive thought has been aroused."

Margaret Sanger, "Hotel Brevoort Speech," January 17, 1916
