Mrs. Margaret Sanger, birth control advocate, called the Toronto baby derby "utterly revolting" in an interview here today.
The race for the $500,000 prize offered the mother who more most children in a ten year period, she said, "reduced woman to an animal and is deplorable."
"There has been no consideration of the quality of the children," she said. "I think it is sordid."
A reporter asked her opinion of the Dionne quintuplets.
"their care is an admirable piece of work," Mrs. Sanger answered.
