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”.

Nonetheless, Codi’s willingness to introduce the unit of birth control into the school’s curriculum portrays her finally not letting the death of her child set her back.

Margaret Sanger knew first-hand what it was like to experience the effects of a life without birth control, being the sister of ten siblings. Her activism for birth control was strongly influenced by her personal experience. At the young age of nineteen, she tragically watched her own mother die from tuberculosis. She personally blamed her father for causing this, saying her mother died from “having too many children and working herself to death” (Amory, 2011).

People realized and start to stray away from it or turn the check to more safe things that wouldn't harm them. Marget Sanger was against larger families. In her passage she uses her own justifications such as larger families are evil and wicked in a way of morals and how they are brought about.

Trying to prevent neglected children and back-alley abortions, Margaret Sanger gave the moving speech, “The Children’s Era,” in 1925 to spread information on the benefits and need for birth control and women's rights. Margaret Sanger--activist, educator, writer, and nurse--opened the first birth control clinic in the United States and established organizations that evolved into the Planned Parenthood Federation of America. During most of the 1900’s, birth control and abortions were illegal in the United States, causing women to give birth unwillingly to a child they must be fully responsible for. This caused illness and possible death for women attempting self-induced abortion. Sanger uses literary devices such as repetition and analogies

Depending on how broad the inequality reaches, this could call for an uprising of a smaller population to start making the changes and start a movement. One inequality, women’s rights, has become a major movement in the past century. Women did not have all the rights that men had, and to this day women do not have complete equal rights. One of the few movements that started in the early 1900s, when America was becoming a greater nation, was the birth control movement in which proponents for birth control fought for women to have a say in their private lives and reproductive systems.
