My Fight for Birth Control
360 pages; illustrations; black cloth, dust jacket under mylar (missing chips with tears along the edges). Margaret Sanger (1879-1966) was the leading advocate for family planning and birth control in the United States during the 20th century. In this book she describes her struggle to have birth control talked about in the open and on a scientific foundation. She opened the first birth control clinic in 1916 and attempted to challenge the Comstock Laws by spreading contraception information to the public. Sanger fled to England to avoid arrest until she worked out a deal with the officials. Sanger was the leading founder of Planned Parenthood and a driving force for medical contraception, better known as 'the pill'. A very good clean copy of the first edition with dust jacket, usually missing, under mylar. Bookseller Inventory # 14166
