which in any way whatsoever can be considered as relating to the theory 

or practice of abortion? And what must we say of the still higher phases 

in which the teachings are concerned with the mental and physical 

preparation of the parents prior to the conception of the child, to the 

end that the child may have the best possible physiological and 

psychological basis for its future well-being? Is not this the very 

antithesis and opposite of all that concerns abortion or abortive 

methods? 

 

The trouble about all great movements designed for the benefit of the 

human race is that at the beginning there is attracted to the movement, 

by reason of its novelty and "newness," certain elements which seize 

upon certain incidental features of the general idea, make them their 

own while excluding or ignoring the more important things, and then 

exploit these incidental features in a sensational way, thereby 

attracting public attention and gaining much undesirable notoriety, and 

as a consequence bringing discredit and disfavor, prejudice and 

misunderstanding, to the general movement. 

 

Birth Control has passed through this apparently inevitable experience, 

and has suffered greatly thereby. But the Light is being thrown on the 

Dark Places, and the more intelligent portion of the public is beginning 

to realize that there is another side to the shield of Birth Control. 

And, as a consequence, much of the original prejudice is disappearing, 

and a new understanding of the subject is arising in the minds of many 

of the best individuals of the race. It is the purpose of this book to 

help to dispel the ignorance and misconception concerning this great 

subject of Birth Control, and to aid in presenting the higher and nobler 

aspects of the general movement to the attention of those who are 

concerned with the advance and progress of the race as a whole, and of 

the individual members thereof. 

 

The student of the subject of Birth Control will fall into grievous 

error if he begins his consideration of the subject under the impression 

that the questions concerned therein are new to the world of living 

things. If the process of Birth Control were something which had 

suddenly sprung into existence in the consciousness of man, without 

having an antecedent activity in the history of the race, and of living 

creatures in general, we might well hesitate to go further in the matter 

without the most serious and prolonged consideration of the entire 

principle by the careful thought of the wisest of the race. But while
