Day 48

On this spot in Brownsville

February 16th, 2012

(or maybe next door — I can't tell for sure) stood America's first birth control clinic, operated by Margaret Sanger and two other women for nine days in 1916 before being shut down for violating the Comstock laws.

    And now the pres wants even religious businesses to make birth control available to their employees and they are still fighting it almost 100 years later….babyocracy.

    Now how do you know about this one Matt?? I mean it’s of significant importance and history but just how do you know this particular one? Quite the history and impact this woman had on even today’s woman and beyond.
