9th Circuit Rules Oregon Law Regarding Sale of Books to Minors Unconstitutional

Judy Blume has always been a controversial children’s book author, which is probably a large reason for her popularity. As most Americans know, her books have been some of the most censored throughout time. Despite the censorship, most women my age can probably still recite passages from her books verbatim. (We must, we must, we must increase our busts!) In 2007, Oregon passed two laws which would have affected the sale of books such as “Forever” with sexual content to minors.
