Description   [from Freebase]

Choices of the Heart: The Margaret Sanger Story (1995) is a TV-movie about the controversial nurse Margaret Sanger who campaigned in the early 1900s in the United States for women's reproductive rights. The New York Times wrote this summary overview: "Dana Delany stars in this made-for-TV movie as Margaret Sanger, a nurse who, in 1914, became a pioneering crusader for women's reproductive rights after she published a booklet on birth control techniques that flew in the face of a law established by Anthony Comstock (Rod Steiger) forbidding the dissemination of information on contraception. Sanger later helped to establish America's first birth control clinic in 1916, and in 1925 was one of the founders of Planned Parenthood." New York Times television critic John J. O'Connor wrote the movie describes an "extraordinary woman whose contraception crusade eventually led to the founding of Planned Parenthood", adding that the movie "camouflages its sketchiness with some fine performances.
