Whatever one may feel about a woman's right to choose an abortion, the fact

proponent of compulsory eugenics,

This is very sad and disappointing to learn. H.G. Wells also had views
which marred his character and legacy. Personally, I greatly prefer an
organization like Birthright to Planned Parenthood but the work Sanger did
in her life to help women of her time avoid constant pregnancy and oversized
families was invaluable.
