appalled at the thought of bringing into the world a practically 

unlimited number of little children for whom they would not be able to 

provide properly. 

 

These people shrink at the idea of abortion, and doubt the efficacy of 

the popular so-called contraceptive methods of which their friends tell 

them, and they either defer the marriage until later in life, or else 

give up the idea altogether as being impossible for them under the 

existing circumstances. A scientific knowledge of the subject would give 

to such persons--and there are many thousands of such--an assurance of 

their ability to safely and properly control and regulate the size of 

their families, and would lead to many a marriage which would otherwise 

be out of the question. 

 

If it is agreed that the marriage state is the one normal to the average 

man and woman, and that marriages are in the interests of society--and 

few would seek to dispute this--then it would seem that anything that 

would tend to encourage marriage among the right kind of persons should 

receive the encouragement of society and be fully protected by the laws 

of society; and that the old prejudice against the subject, and the laws 

which discourage the same, and place a penalty upon the dissemination of 

scientific methods leading to the said result, are unworthy of civilized 

society and modern thought. 

 

EARLIER MARRIAGES AND CURB ON PROSTITUTION. It is generally conceded by 

students of sociology that earlier marriages tend to decrease the causes 

of the evil of prostitution, illicit sexual relations, and general 

sexual morality; and the consequent spread and existence of the venereal 

diseases which have followed in the trail of such relations. And it is 

likewise conceded that prostitution is an evil, and a cancer spot upon 

modern social life, and that venereal diseases constitute a frightful 

menace to the health and physical welfare of the race. Therefore, it 

would seem that anything which would promote early marriages among 

healthy, intelligent young men and women would be a blessing to the race 

and to society. And as these earlier marriages are unquestionably 

prevented in a great number of cases by reasons of the fear of 

inadequate financial support for large families of children, it would 

seem to follow that the best interests of society would be served by the 

encouragement by public opinion, under the protection of the law, of the 

teaching by competent authorities upon the subject of rational and 

scientific methods of Birth Control.
