    Sarah

    The author does not do a terribly great job of making the material interesting, but its the story of how a Planned Parenthood was set up in Albany, NY and then grew to several clinics. Read for research. Short and a quick and easy read. If you are interested in the history of reproductive rights you may enjoy the book.
