Information about 1950's birth control

Margaret Sanger was one of the first inventors of the birth control pill.

Around the late 1905's and the early 1960's ABORTION was taking place "...safe illegal abortion was being performed by doctors...".


The factor of American society that made this invention possible was mostly the baby boomers.

The baby boomer era is what made the rise to birth control.the popularity grew once more women found out about this new invention.


This invention changed the American society because women were able to now go get jobs or an education for them selfs.Also it changed the sexually relations between married/unmarried couples so that there not constantly having babies. This helped because women would not have so little time because of there children.


I feel this invention was a good be because this decreases teen pregnancy also pregnancy in general.It was a turning point for women because they would have more freedom within the community and it is more socially acceptable.for instance one argument is teen pregnancy is more prevented,also more young people are taking responsibility for there actions,lastly more people are happy with their "childless" relationships.
