Mike Wallace interviews Margaret Sanger

margaret sangerRecently, the University of Texas in Austin released a video collection of interviews between Mike Wallace and various people during the late 1950s. These are truly fascinating to watch!

But I wanted to point you to an interview he did with Planned Parenthood founder, Margaret Sanger. You may remember I spoke about her a few weeks ago. This interview may help reveals a bit more about her, her motivations, her feelings about the Catholic Church, as well as shed light on how something as common (today) as birth control was talked about 50 years ago. Watch how she dodges questions, changes positions, and constantly says she’s been misquoted.

For conservative Christians, this also sheds light on the correlation we often see between birth control and abortion. (Something I was first exposed to during Bible college.)
