Margaret Sanger

In this very brief passage, Sanger emphasizes that birth control should be seen as normal in the pluralistic America of the early 20th century.

It seems a pity that so enlightened a people as ours should bar from their lives so many fundamental truths simply because, when they are presented, they appear either sensational or shocking. Many people are horrified at the idea of birth control, while to me it is simply the keynote of a new moral program.
