A call for the removal of contraception from the criminal code.

An Taoiseach Jack Lynch comments on the public and private morality of contraception. His comments come in reaction to Church of Ireland Archbishop of Dublin Alan Buchanan calling for the removal of contraception from the criminal code.

It must be remembered that the law in relation to contraceptives prohibits the exposure for sale and the importation. Beyond that it's a matter for a person's conscience.
