‘I will never give up’: Birth-control pioneer says fight has personal cost

In this April 5, 2012 photo, birth control pioneer Bill Baird, 79, poses by the bars of an old Charles Street Jail cell, currently in the lobby of the Liberty Hotel, in Boston. Forty-five years ago, Baird's arrest for giving spermicidal foam to an unmarried 19-year-old coed set up a constitutional challenge that sent his case to the U.S. Supreme Court. (AP Photo/Elise Amendola)Taunts of “baby killer” and “butcher” still echo in Bill Baird’s ears, nearly five decades after he began fighting for birth control and abortion rights.
