not uncommon for progressives scientists and those in the medical field to subscribe to the principles of eugenics at that time many thought mistakenly as it turned out that it was the only way science could really cure disability and disease once and for all Medical science Jeou p'ou t'ouan ou la chair comme tapis de prire humanitarian groups and governmentsad not yet offered systematic or effective solutions to the dangers of pregnancy and childbirth diseases caused by overcrowding and malnourishment and mental ealth issues and were simply unable to keep up with the demands of the umanitarian crisis in affected communities Eugenics on the other ad seemed to offer the only sure and straightforward solution until the application of its principles by fascist governments revealed ow faulty a science really a pseudoscience it was Sanger was also a neglectful mother unsuited by personality to the stay at Do No Harm home role mothers were restricted to iner time Pincus was a

pill came to be since all of the reasons that accessible effective birth control was important then are the same reasons it s important today If the birth control pill was one of the most important inventions of the 20th century why is it that most peopleave no idea who invented it or Kraken: An Anatomy how it came to be As I read Jonathan Eig s excellent new book on the subject it occurred to

scientist who Daughter of the Alien Warrior Treasured by the Alien had been fired fromis tenure track position at Harvard partly due to the radical nature of Fire on the Water his research and partly due to anti Semitism The book reads like an entertaining and bizarre combination of a campy science fiction novel and an eclectic travelogue in which the characters lead us on a strange trip from world before the Pill to a brave new world in which it is nearly impossible to imagine life without the Pill It is also a terrific read for anyone interested in a great story about the evolution of
