Medical Pioneer. The leading crusader in America for birth control (a term she coined) Margaret Sanger was arrested eight times in a tumultuous career that brought her condemnations as a "lascivious monster" and praise by H.G. Wells as "the greatest woman in the world." She opened the first birth-control clinic in America, the first clinic staffed by doctors, and led the national movement which became the Planned Parenthood Federation.
