Celebrating A Birth Control Milestone (Cautiously)

Birth control is a fact of life in our society, but it was not always easy to obtain. 

It took a Supreme Court ruling in the mid 1960s to legalize contraception for married couples. 

The availability has only expanded from there, but not without challenges. 

Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon is taking note of the anniversary of that earlier court decision.

PPAO also focuses on a pending court ruling about whether religious/personal beliefs can be a basis for an employer to deny health insurance coverage for birth control.
