Transcript:
According to our Constitution, a woman has a right to do with her body what she wants. In our democratic society, she has the right to learn everything about her body and its workings that she wants to know. There is simple evidence that birth control is possible without harmful effects to health, and so the only obstacle in its way is ignorance, superstition, and religious bigotry.
