Modern birth control went through many obstacles before it was available to the public. In the United States during the 19th and 20th centuries, birth control and contraceptives were social issues that were fraught with controversy. This backlash led to legislation (e.g. Comstock Law) being passed that barred people, including doctors, from talking about contraceptives on the grounds of obscenity (Bone, 2010). For most the 20th century, birth control education and counseling was legally excluded as a part of what a nurse's responsibility and practice should be (Lagerwey, 1999).
