September 14th is the birthday of Margaret Sanger, the founder of the modern birth control movement and the organization that would become Planned Parenthood Federation of America. Here are some links in honor of Margaret Sanger. She loved throw grand parties – so be sure to drink a toast in her honor today!
Feel free to leave a birthday message for her in the comments section. I, for one, want to say thank you for fighting to make sure that women could control their destinies by gaining access to birth control. You were a rabel rouser, a practical joker, and someone who never gave up. I’m so proud to live in Tucson, because it makes me feel like the two of us have something in common. Happy birthday, Margaret Sanger!
