Timeline

Ten days after the clinic opened, Sanger was arrested for "violating laws against giving out birth control information" which was defined as obscenity. The clinic was not handing out birth control - just information about sex and birth control methods.

The clinics and organizations that Sanger established later evolved into the Planned Parenthood Federation of America.
