Sanger popularized the term "birth control", opened the first birth control clinic in the United States (1916) which led to her arrest for distributing information on contraception (an undercover policewoman bought a copy of her pamphlet on family planning), organized the first birth control clinic to be staffed by all-female doctors, founded a clinic in Harlem which had an all African-American advisory council (African-American staff were later added) and founded the American Birth Control League which has evolved into the Planned Parenthood Federation of America. Very good. Item #2032
