    She actually was a proponent of forced abortions as well.

    Bah ... married people shouldn't be allowed to use birth control since that's the reason they are suppose to get married anyhow ... at least that's what people claim.

    please provide some sort of proof to that claim if you can, allie. I've heard it before, but have not seen the support.

    do you think birth control pills should have stayed illegal?

    That's what I've heard...that marriage is for procreation only.

    I agree. Margaret Sanger's motives were more along the lines of eugenics, rather than woman's lib...we had a lecture on this history in residency. Unfortunately, I don't have any links...but I'm sure they are easily found.

    This is from Wikipedia (so you can take it with a grain of salt):

    Margaret Sanger - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Some of her quotes would make William Joyce, Tank, and Lonesome_Loser genuflect in utmost reverence.

    Sounds like Sanger can be an Obama Population Czar
