In 1938, the clinic was organized into the American Birth Control League which was later called Planned Parenthood Federation and then just Planned Parenthood.
On May 9, 1960, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the sale of oral pills for contraception.
In 1961, Estelle Griswold opened a birth control clinic to distribute contraceptives and to contest the state’s ban on birth control.
