United States v. One Package of Japanese Pessaries - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In 1873 Congress adopted the Comstock Act, which prohibited the importation or mailing of "obscene matter". The law's definition of obscene matter included contraceptives or information about contraception. In the 1930s, Margaret Sanger and the National Committee for Federal Legislation on Birth Control lobbied Congress to revise this law, but were unsuccessful.
