Birth control pioneer, 79, will continue his crusade
CAMBRIDGE — This month marks the 45th anniversary of abortion rights activist Bill Baird’s arrest at Boston University for giving contraception to a student.
That 1972 decision, Eisenstadt vs. Baird, gave single people the same rights to birth control as married people.
Mr. Baird recently told a lecture audience in Massachusetts that he is determined to keep fighting for reproductive rights.
Supporters and some people who have opposed Mr. Baird’s abortion rights activism agree he will go down in history.
Judge limits comments to press in Sandusky case
BELLEFONTE — The judge overseeing the child sex abuse case against former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky is putting attorneys on both sides under an order that severely limits what they can say to reporters.
Judge John Cleland’s order issued Monday also applies to investigators who have ever worked on the case and tells attorneys to limit statements by witnesses.
Judge Cleland says he issued the new rules to help ensure a fair, impartial and orderly trial.
The ensuing scandal led to the firing of legendary football coach Joe Paterno and the ouster of the university president.
