Looks like Mrs. Sanger may be in trouble...
The judge cleared his throat then looked her squarely in the eye. “Mrs. Sanger, the evidence has proven that you have broken the law in the State of New York by opening your so-called birth control clinic. Despite your opinion on the matter, women do not have the right to copulate with a feeling of security that there will be no resulting conception. However, I am inclined to be lenient with you so you can return to your husband and children, if you’ll promise not to break the law again.” His voice rumbled through the courtroom. Margaret thought he was rather condescending.
She straightened her shoulders and stared right back at the judge. “Your Honor, thank you for your leniency, but I cannot respect the law as it exists today.” She raised her chin defiantly.
The judge’s smile disappeared.
She also penned They Call Her Granny, another story in HerStory.
