dc.description.abstract The Reproductive Rights Movement was the social movement that created Planned Parenthood of North Central Indiana whose background and history of that agency is the subject of this thesis. The organization was founded by a small group of people who felt compassion for and understood the desperation of women who had unplanned and unwanted pregnancies. Like other social movements -- including the Civil Rights Movement, the American Indian Movement and the Anti-War Movement -- the Reproductive Rights Movement did not begin in the 1960s. Rather, these movements were a culmination of individual acts of civil disobedience. What was significant in the 1960s was that by that decade it was apparent that laws did not adequately represent the powerless. It was necessary for the powerless to join forces to accomplish a common goal Social movements "establish a new order of life" -- at times, cataclysmic only in retrospect. Something as seemingly insignificant as a reproductive health care clinic opening in 1968 in South Bend, Indiana was, in fact, establishing a new order of life in this community. This project examines how social movements affect organizations, both directly and indirectly. This study also examines how and why an organization like PPNCI started in a community like South Bend. Specifically, I examine the historical development of PPNCI as it intersects with the trends of both the Reproductive Rights Movement and the Women's Movement.--pages 2-3. en
