Comparison of Anthony to Sanger wrong

Editor, the Advocate:
I take issue to the comparison of Casey Anthony to Margaret Sanger in the Sulak letter of July 23. Margaret Sanger worked tirelessly and at great personal risk for 50 years, including being incarcerated, to enable women to be taught and allowed the use of birth control.
She began her crusade to save the lives of desperate women who died in dangerous and illegal abortions. Margaret Sanger worked to help women learn to use birth control and to change the laws to allow doctors to prescribe birth control. While I fully respect that everyone is entitled to their opinion, to compare the case of Casey Anthony to the noble actions of this dedicated and caring woman is uncalled for and incorrect.
