The National Museum of American History at the Smithsonian has a small display in one of its wings honoring this anniversary.
I was in Washington DC last week with my son's eighth-grade class and was able to see the display. Rather than go into a long discussion on reproductive rights, I thought that I would just share a few pictures that I took with my BlackBerry (can you believe that we left our good camera behind?).
This is how birth control pills used to be packaged.
Just a bit of pharmaceutical history from the Smithsonian.
