Birth Control OK, Billy Graham Says

|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.
