She began her campaign in 1912 and began publishing materials on the subject two years later. On October 16, 1916, Sanger opened the Brooklyn clinic, assisted by a sister who was a nurse and a woman from Chicago who knew Yiddish and could speak with the many Jewish women they hoped to serve. One hundred women came to the clinic the first day. Ten days later, the police arrested Sanger and her two colleagues. After her release, Sanger reopened the clinic and was arrested again. After she reopened a third time, the police shut the clinic down for good.
All three women were convicted of causing a public nuisance. Sanger appealed her conviction. While the state appeals court upheld it, the ruling opened the door to doctors to assist women with birth control for reasons of general health. Sanger continued her work, but not until 1936 did U.S. federal courts rule that birth-control information was not obscenity and thus could be transmitted across state lines.
