Sanger

 [sang´er]
Margaret H. (1883–1966). Founder of the American birth control movement. Her early practice among poor families in New York City led her to recognize the relationship between overpopulation, high infant and maternal mortality, and poverty. As a result she began publishing information on contraception and opened the nation's first birth control clinic.
