She completed successfully a lot with her speech that was filled with sympathy, emotion and logical explanation. She was often sent to jail for making radical claims about birth control and planned parenting, seeing as how that was new and uncharted territory at the time. And because I believed that the people of this country may and can discuss this subject with dignity and with intelligence I desired to bring them together, and to discuss it in the open. If we cannot trust woman with the knowledge of her own body, then I claim that two thousand years of Christian teaching has proved to be a failure. The only way to stop population growth is birth control. I recently took a new job almost three months ago with a very well known catholic organization. When one speaks of moral, one refers to human conduct.
In the work, Sanger explained that she had sent letters to different people regarding the issue, including those who felt differently on the issue. When one speaks of moral, one refers to human conduct. She uses a strong sense of bias, fallacies, and colorful rhetoric devices in her speech to not only get the attention of the audiences, but to relay a sense of urgency for the actions that need to be taken. Is over-population a menace to the peace of the world? The second group is equally intelligent and responsible. So that in speaking of morals one must remember that there is a direct connection between morality and brain development. Extensive research has been conducted studying the effects of birth control across many fields, and the results all seem to agree. Society is divided into three groups.
For the more responsible people grow, the higher do they and shall they attain real morality. So, if anyone may not know, what do you truthfully use to manipulate the thoughts of others? But such ways of controlling population is no longer possible for us. Margaret Sanger, who had opened the first birth control clinic in 1916 despite the Comstock Act of 1873, was a feminist and advocate. With the analysis of rhetorical strategies underway, I would like to discuss the presence of pathos in the speech. There are laws in this country which forbid the imparting of practical information to the mothers of the land. The second group is equally intelligent and responsible.
She challenged Gregory Pincus to develop the Birth Control Pill, which he did, and she also founded the Planned Parenthood Organization. When used correctly, persuasion is a deadly weapon at the tip of your tongue, and it certainly can, and will, help you obtain your desired outcome. Though many statements that she makes are purely subjective, the tone of the piece combined with the implementation of a deep logic behind each opinion substantiates her argument and is an interesting use of rhetoric. The meeting tonight is a postponement of one which was to have taken place at the Town Hall last Sunday evening. We know that the masses of people are growing wiser and are using their own minds to decide their individual conduct.
Would knowledge of Birth Control change the moral attitude of men and women toward the marriage bond or lower the moral standards of the youth of the country? This implies action of many kinds, which in turn depends upon the mind and the brain. Many of this group are diseased, feeble-minded, and are of the pauper element dependent entirely upon the normal and fit members of society for their support. They have only children when they desire, and all society points to them as types that should perpetuate their kind. We must begin farther back and control the beginnings of life. I thought it was kind of messed up that she referred to them as disease creating, irresponsible and immoral. La Tour did this painting in France.
Pregnancy may be beautiful for some but not for all, motherhood is a considerable challenge. The Margaret Sanger Papers Project, New York University, has the copyright to this speech transcript. Most of these people answered. Letters were sent to the most eminent men and women in the world. When talking about the structure of society speaker vividly described the three layers with strong connotation using pathos especially in the third group representing misery, poverty, disease. Would the legal dissemination of scientific Birth Control information through the medium of clinics by the medical profession be the most logical method of checking the problem of over-population? We know that every advance that woman has made in the last half century has been made with opposition, all of which has been based upon the grounds of immorality.
Recent research seems to have shown that access to affordable birth control is directly tied to positive effects for the individual, the child, and the economy as a whole. For if they are not able to support and care for themselves, they should certainly not be allowed to bring offspring into this world for others to look after. This shows a double standard in decision making for women. She began her movement in 1912, with the publication of information about women 's reproductive concerns through magazine articles, pamphlets, and several books. The third group are irresponsible, reckless, feeble-minded and of pauper element.

That did not stop the resilient leader of the birth control movement. This implies action of many kinds, which in turn depends upon the mind and the brain. Originally scheduled to be delivered at the close of the First American Birth Control Conference on Nov. Those who oppose it claim that however desirable it may be on economic or social grounds, it may be abused and the morals of the youth of the country may be lowered. Though this issue was still standing, Sanger allowed her words to flow into the ears of eager listeners, place herself into the slot of an average citizen, and show how persuasion can be used to manipulate others.
Those intelligent and wealthy members of the upper classes who have obtained knowledge of Birth Control and exercise it in regulating the size of their families. The speaker addresses arguments and counterarguments when she states that the church does not see fit for women to meet with and mix with the members of the opposite sex for equality because it would lower their standards of morality but it is okay for women to meet with the same members of the opposite sex when they went to church. Through countless instances man has tried to separate the sexual act from that of procreation and subsequent childbearing. In the late 1800s birth control, a term coined by Margaret Sanger in her newspaper, Women Rebel, in 1914, was considered to be immoral by most religious groups. One bias that Sanger uses is toward the idea of motherhood without birth control being condition of ignorance and chance. While Nature's way of reducing her numbers is controlled by disease, famine and war, primitive man has achieved the same results by infanticide, exposure of infants, the abandonment of children, and by abortion.
Well, whether you are aware or not, your strategies more than likely fall under ethos, pathos, or logos, that of which, I would like to uncover in the speech of Margaret Sanger. Such people should be reminded that there are two points to be considered. It seemed only natural for us to call together scientists, educators, members of the medical profession and the theologians of all denominations to ask their opinion upon this uncertain and important phase of the controversy. Her magazine, Woman Rebel, was banned from the mails on. The meeting tonight is a postponement of one which was to have taken place at the Town Hall last Sunday evening.
