“These are crucial times for Planned Parenthood and abortion and birth control,” said Sanger, a New York lawyer who also is chairman of International Planned Parenthood Council and Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Population Fund.
“Politically, we’re going backward. More and more state legislatures are restricting access to birth control.”
In the early 1900s, Margaret Sanger advocated that a woman’s body is hers to govern.
“A woman is the best judge as to when to give birth,” he said. “Every culture in the world has abortions. They should be safe, legal and rare. Our job is eliminating shame if there is an unwanted pregnancy.”
