Regarding the inalienable right of an individual to maintain the privacy and control of their body, specifically in the realm of reproductive advocasy, we may always find a historically relevant perspective paraphrased from Ms. Margaret Sanger.

We maintain that a person possessing an adequate functional fund of knowledge of their reproductive anatomy and functionality is the finest judge of the time, circumstance & conditions under which their pregnancy should be managed. We continue to assert that it is the right, regardless of all and any other considerations, to ascertain if they will have a child or not, and how many children they will decide to bring into the world if they choose to decide to become a parent . . . Only upon a free, self-determining individual can lay the foundation for any unshakable structure of gender betterment.
