This stamp was issued to highlight the issue of responsible family planning, in an attempt to control rapid population growth. A stamp had been long been lobbied for in honor of Margaret Sanger, a birth control advocate. Planned Parenthood was one of the chief proponents, which helped to fuel controversy and spark objections from the Catholic Church and other opponents. After five years of debate, this Family Planning stamp was issued, minus any reference to Sanger.
