Talk on the need for widespread birth control among college age youths by William Baird, an outspoken advocate of birth control. Humanity is breeding itself into extinction, Baird asserts, and have not addressed the fundamental cause: human sexuality. The population crisis of India and China will soon spread to the entire world, he continues, which proves that the presence or absence of birth control does not contribute to promiscuity. The problem of attaining an abortion in the United States, Baird points out, leads to thousands of deaths. The more functional form of birth control, therefore, is prevention of pregnancy through IUD's, the pill, or prophylactics. Baird also attacks the double sexual standards in society for young men and young women.
