In opposition to Fascism in Spain during Spain's Civil War (1936-39), Sanger writes a strong statement to, "Bishop Frances J. McConnell," titling her letter, "Telegram." "Spanish Loyalist Govt in granting civil liberty to women is only doing what is consistent with principles of Socialist liberal thought throughout world. Spanish women have great responsibility in using this power to advance civilization by curbing Fascists' ideas & ideals of women as pack animals & breeders. Women of Spain will not forget who gave them their liberty." Written, signed and dated in a bold hand, "Margaret Sanger, Feb. 7, 1937." Condition: two visible punch holes atop each page, one affecting the correspondent's name.
Sanger wrote this political letter in 1937, the year she became chair of the newly formed Birth Control Council of America. Five years later the organization's name changed to Planned Parenthood.
