For most of the 19th century, birth control was not considered a health or medical issue; all prohibitions and prosecutions regarding birth control were implemented under obscenity laws. One such law, the Comstock Act of 1873, banned the distribution of contraceptives as well as information about contraceptives. Well over 100 years later, birth control is still a highly sensitive subject.About the Author:
Aharon W. Zorea is associate professor in history at the University of Wisconsin, Richland, WI.
