Planned Parenthood Pamphlets
Planned Parenthood touted its distribution of birth control as a child spacing method and its fertility services to help married couples become parents in the post-World War II years. The organization invested its efforts in marital counseling to expand its patient base during the marriage and baby boom after the war. Many of Planned Parenthood’s pamphlets in the postwar period were aimed at married couples addressing these services. These pamphlets also underscored the diversity of the organization’s patients to include both unwed women and married couples.
