The argument over a woman’s right to choose over the life of an unborn baby has been a prevalent issue in America for many years. As a birth control activist, Margaret Sanger is recognized for her devotion to the pro-choice side of the debate as she has worked to provide sex education and legalize birth control. As part of her pro-choice movement, Sanger delivered a speech at the Sixth International Neo-Malthusian and Birth Control Conference in March of 1925. This speech is called “The Children’s Era,” in which she explains how she wants the twentieth century to become the “century of the child.” Margaret Sanger uses pathos throughout her speech as she brings up many of the negative possibilities that unplanned parenthood can bring for both children and parents.
Florence Kelley, a United States social worker and reformer, delivered a speech before the convention of the National American Woman Suffrage Association on July 22, 1905. The speech was meant to call the listeners’ attention to child labour, the laws that governed it, and how it needed to be changed. In order to achieve this, Kelley uses various rhetorical devices; some of which include the use of rhetorical questions to draw the listener’s attention to what is happening, the use of imagery to evoke emotions, and the use of specific facts in order to build credibility. Kelly conveys her message about child labor reviews of rhetorical questions to draw the listener’s attention to what is happening. When she questions that
After read this article “No Healthy Race without Birth Control” by Margaret Sanger who really makes my mind stuck out with two points: first is her title “No Healthy Race without Birth Control” and another she used birth Control as a vehicle for women to gain their freedom. Firstly, I do not agree with her augment is that “No Healthy Race without Birth Control”. I have never heard a maxim like this in my life: such as women will not have a good health if they do not do birth control. This argument is not entirely true.
Birth Control is the practice of preventing unwanted pregnancies, usually by the use of contraception. Whether it be the implant, patch, pills, shot, or sponge. Some people want to have sex but prevent having children but sometimes these birth control methods don’t always work and some have had lethal consequences in the past. Birth control can date back to 3000 B.C. when condoms were made from such materials as fish bladders, linen sheaths, and animal intestines.
Angela Grimke introduces the horrors of slavery and racism through sensuous imagery and parallelism in her anecdote, emphasizes the need for women to act through an exclamatory sentence and friendly persona, and ensures women that their participation is effective through historical evidence in her speech “Bearing Witness Against Slavery.” As an angry mob of anti-abolitionists rage outside the lecture hall, Grimke must continually battle for her audience’s attention. She holds their focus with an intense pathetic appeal when describing her firsthand experiences with slavery and racism to establish the idea that excused racism in the north relates to empowered slave owners in the south. This becomes an ethical appeal when she calls upon women
Margaret Sanger was a birth rights advocate and in her later years, supported eugenics. Eugenics is the belief that all of the good human qualities can be the main characteristics instead of all the bad qualities in the human population. In the speech, Sanger believes that people with mental illnesses should have limited children or no children at all which proves that she supported negative eugenics and sterilization.
A rhetorical analysis of the HeForShe Speech Emma Watson is an internationally recognized actress and current United Nations (UN) Goodwill Ambassador, who in 2014 gave a speech to a large group of UN leaders from across the world. The speech by Ms. Watson was held to start a conversation about how there is a need to change people’s imagery of what feminism is, switching from man-hating to something that involves the help of men in finding solutions. The speech by Ms. Watson also served as the launchpad for the HeForShe initiative. Emma Watson’s speech will be analyzed for the effectiveness of Pathos and Kairos. Pathos is how the author establishes their image in the mind of their audience and what emotions are evoked in the audience through word choice.
In the early 1900s, women’s health was non-existent. It was not taught in school, it was never spoken about in the media, and many women themselves had no knowledge about reproductive health. During this time it was common to see women with ten, fifteen, even twenty pregnancies throughout their lives. Men and women both were often unaware on how to plan or prevent a pregnancy and birth control was pronounced illegal. Consequently, this was also a period of high childbirth mortality, as well as a time where many women were dying due to self-induced or “back-alley” abortions.
If couples want fewer children to be raising their children better, they can use natural methods of contraception. They could not use artificial methods or any medication to avoid and abortion. I knew Margaret Sanger was a famous nurse who devoted her life to legalizing birth control and making it universally for women. Especially, she created birth control pill for contraception use for women. Therefore, I could not accept the way she did for birth control.
Thesis: Your thesis is three parts and should be in one sentence.

The author’s argument was to inform the public on how Margaret Sanger argues that women today are still enslaved by childbearing and abstinent couple due to the lack of misrepresentation of the Birth Control movement.

Educator, Margaret Sanger, in her argumentative essay, “The Morality of Birth Control” implies the moral and responsibility when birth control is involved. Sanger purpose is to convey, to take birth control there are rules you must also include into the discussion. She adopts a touchy tone to appeal to those who aren’t informative of such drugs. Also, Sanger addresses to those who wouldn’t speak up for themselves or for religious purposes. Margaret created this reading to draw the audience to her view point of birth control.
