consist not of the PROHIBITION or PREVENTION of human offspring, but 

rather of the GOVERNING, REGULATING, AND MANAGING of the production of 

human offspring, under the inspiration of the highest ideals and under 

the direction of the highest reason, for the purpose of the advancement 

and welfare of the race and that of the individuals composing the race. 

Instead of being an anti-social and anti-moral propaganda, Birth Control 

when rightly understood is perceived to be in accordance with the 

highest social aims and aspirations, and in accordance with the highest 

and purest morality of the race. 

 

Much of the opposition toward the general movement of Birth Control 

which has been manifested by many well-meaning, though misinformed, 

persons, has arisen by reason of the erroneous conception and 

understanding of the term itself, and of misleading information 

concerning the true nature of the best teachings on the subject. This 

prejudice has been heightened by certain zealous but ill-balanced 

advocates of the general movement who have overemphasized the incidental 

feature of the limitation of offspring under certain conditions, and who 

have appealed to the attention and interest merely of those who wished 

to escape the responsibilities of parenthood. This has caused much 

sorrow and distress to the many persons who have the highest ideals and 

results in view, and who deplore this unbalanced propaganda under the 

name, and apparently under the cloak of the general movement. Such 

persons have felt inclined to cry aloud "Good Lord, deliver us from our 

so-called friends!" 

 

One of the most distressing features of the popular prejudice against 

Birth Control, arising from a total misconception of the subject, has 

been the widely spread and popularly accepted notion that Birth Control 

is practically analogous to abortion--or, at the best, but a more 

refined and less repulsive and less dangerous form of abortion. In view 

of the fact that one of the important results sought to be obtained by a 

scientific knowledge of Birth Control actually is the prevention and 

avoidance of the crime of abortion which has wrought such terrible havoc 

among the women of civilized countries, it is most distressing and 

discouraging to the conscientious and high-minded advocates of Birth 

Control to have it said and believed that their teachings encourage and 

justify abortion. 

 

A reference to any standard dictionary or textbook will reveal the fact 

that "Abortion" means: "the premature expulsion of the human embryo or 

foetus; miscarriage voluntarily induced or produced," etc. It is seen at
