The birth control movement in the United States was a movement to overturn birth control laws beginning in 1914 that lasted until 1945. The movement was meant to improve the access to contraception in the United States. Contraception is a method to reduce unwanted pregnancy. It can come in the form of condoms, pills, shots, and much more. However, contraception doesn’t just prevent pregnancy but benefits women in many other medical ways. The movement was led by Emma Goldman, Mary Dennett, and Margaret Sanger. These women found that abortions were not acessible enough, especially for women with low incomes. These women especially tried to over-turn the Comstock Laws. These were a set of laws that “prohibited mailing of "any article or thing designed or intended for the prevention of conception or procuring of abortion" as well as any form of contraceptive information”. However, the 1920s was a huge time period of successes and setbacks for women involved in the movement. As birth control and abortions were now more commonly accepted, many people were still trying to fight against this. Most of the medical community were still against birth control and many birth control advocates were blacklisted by many companies. State and federal laws still outlawed contraception even if the rules were less enforced. In my project I will focus on the 20’s and the accomplishments and hardships that the birth control movement faced.
