If any of your have tried to discuss the subject of birth control with friends, relatives or others you have no doubt found as all of us have that the one crutch the opposition leans upon is the immorality of birth control. They claim that knowledge of birth control means immorality not only outside of marriage but within marriage as well. We have been very fortunate to get the Potter, Charles Francis>clergymen of the West Side Unitarian Church whose study in the ethics of this subject will answer that perrenial questions for us. I am glad to introduce to you the Rev. Charles Francis Potter.
