Title

Escape from Fear

Description

Giveaway comic book distributed by Planned Parenthood Federation of America Publications. Revised edition of a 1956 publication. 

Fear of an unwanted pregnancy makes intimacy stressful for the Harpers. Learning about contraception from Planned Parenthood helps them plan for children and eases their fears.

Cover teaser "Joan and Ken Harper's marriage was on the rocks--because they loved each other!"

Final panel: Joan Harper says, "Planned Parenthood helped us save our marriage. Someday when our children are older, we may want another baby. That's why planned parenthood is so wonderful. It doesn't mean not having children-it means spacing them so they come when we can give them the kind of love and care they deserve!"

Back cover lists six regional Planned Parenthood-World Population centers. The address for The Virginia League for Planned Parenthood (2009 Monument Ave., Richmond 20,  VA.) is stamped at the bottom of the page.

"This publication was prepared by the Planned Parenthood Federation of America under the supervision of Dr. Gordon W. Perkin, Associate Medical Director, for the use of persons who are married or 21 years or older. If you want birth control advice consult your doctor, your public health department, the clinic at a hostpital or the doctor at your local Planned Parenthood Center...."
