Overview
As a child, Sanger’s father Michael Higgins, an Irish-born American stonemason and freethinker, invited Robert Ingersoll to their town to speak, and made it clear to everyone that he supported Ingersoll; Margaret and her sibling were latter called “devil children” and heretics. [1]

Some years later, Sanger was caught one night, by her father, speaking to the bread, after dinner. Her father asked her why she spoke to the bread? She replied that she was thanking god for it. He asked if god was a baker? That, as she later recalled, was the start of her awakening. [1]

In 1910s, Sanger, in efforts to curtail dangerous back alley abortions, became a leading birth control activist; founder of Planned Parenthood; declared “no god; no masters”; braved the opposition of the Roman Catholic church. (Ѻ)
