do drunkards transmit to their descendants tendency toward insanity and 

crime, but even habitually sober parents who at the moment of conception 

are in a temporary state of drunkenness beget children who are epileptic 

or paralytic, idiotic or insane, very often microcephalic, or with 

remarkable weakness of mind, which is transformed at the first favorable 

occasion into insanity." 

 

The time of conception should undoubtedly be chosen to correspond to a 

time in which the sex-powers of both parents are at their maximum. This 

is arrived at by a reasonable period of previous continence and 

abstinence from sexual relations between the married couple, and by an 

observance of the natural law which renders the woman most strong 

sexually at the close of the menstrual period. The husband, as well as 

the wife, is most strong sexually at this period, as under normal 

conditions his sex-power is most actively called forth by that of the 

woman at this period. At this period the wave of sex-power is at its 

height, and this is the best time for the beginning of the new life. As 

Riddell says: "Strong, vigorous, chaste sexuality at the time of 

conception is of supreme importance; it is indispensable to good 

results. No number of other conditions or factors can be so favorable as 

to justify the creation of a new life when the vitality of either parent 

is low. Parents transmit their physical constitution, intellect and 

morals only to the extent of the sex-power at the time of inception." 

 

It is needless to say that there should exist between the prospective 

parents a strong bond of affection and attraction. By an irony of 

civilized life, the term "love child" is applied only to the offspring 

of unmarried lovers--men and women whose affection or passion have run 

away with their judgment, and who have "loved not wisely, but too well." 

Some of the world's greatest men and women have been "love children" of 

this kind; and in such cases it is probably true that their physical and 

mental strength has been the result of the ardent feeling animating the 

parents at the moment of conception. Such children seldom result from 

the "tired bed" or worn-out passion, love killed by sexual excesses, 

indifference on the part of one of the participants of the union, "duty" 

intercourse without affection or passion, or forced sexual relations. 

Every child should be a "love child" in the true sense of the term. The 

term should be one of respect, not of reproach. There should be no 

children but "love children." The fruit of the perfect mating and
