A Little History of Birth Control Acceptance in America
This is a very informative, timely interview on Issues, Etc. entitled, "American Evangelicals and Birth Control." I have read a fair amount about how Christianity came to accept birth control as the norm, but there were a few things I learned in this interview, especially how Margaret Sanger put a spin on things to Planned Parenthood's advantage. If you are pro-choice, I would encourage you to listen to this to see how Planned Parenthood came to be accepted in our society; if you are a pro-life Christian, I would encourage you to listen to learn a little about how Protestant Christians moved away from the church's historic position against birth control. It is always good to know how we got to where we are today.
