00 Hardcover HQ764 This second of four volumes containing letters and other papers by birth control champion and feminist Sanger (1879-1966) begins the year she resigned from the American Birth Control League and began struggling to find a place of authority in the movement she had piloted to public recognition if not yet acceptance.
First, we must take seriously what I call "Irregular" birth control clinics (those sponsored by nurses, chiropractors, and commercial entrepreneurs), for to do otherwise would be to perpetuate what the American Birth Control League (ABCL) would have us believe, that such clinics were nothing more than the work of quacks or scoundrels whose only purpose was to profit off their patrons' desperation.
