Margaret Sanger gives abortion instructions

Did Margaret Sanger endorse abortion? Brian E Fisher, in his book Abortion: The Ultimate Exploitation of Women. posits that Sanger supported abortion but toned down her rhetoric later in her life when colleagues convinced her that supporting abortion would hurt her cause for birth control.

An example of a place where Margaret Sanger endorsed abortion:

“When once one has been convinced that an abortion is necessary, do not indulge in medicines of any kind. They only weaken the system, and require a much greater length of time to recuperate. Never allow a pregnancy to run over a month. If you are going to have an abortion, make up your mind to do it in the first stages, and have it done.”

Margaret Sanger Family Limitation, pamphlet, 1914, 5
