Birth Control OK, Billy Graham Says

Dec. 13, 1959, Birth Control

The Scriptures say nothing that would bar responsible use of birth control, Billy Graham says.

Dec. 13, 1959, Bill of Rights
Dec. 13, 1959: I rarely republish The Times editorials because they are frequently embarrassing,  taking such positions as the U.S. doesn’t need a federal anti-lynching law or the Holocaust-era pronouncement that America shouldn’t accept Jewish refugees from Europe because they’ll only go on welfare or take jobs from Americans.

But this one stands out, even among statements that the U.S. shouldn’t recognize Red China or recall corrupt Mayor Frank Shaw: The Times likes the Bill of Rights, except when some people – presumably Mickey Cohen and assorted communists -- “abuse” their rights under the 5th Amendment.
