freely in the foregoing paragraphs: First, let us consider the term, 

"NATURAL"; we find it defined as "FIXED OR DETERMINED BY NATURE, AND, 

THEREFORE, ACCORDING TO NATURE, AND NOT ARTIFICIAL, ASSUMED, OR 

ACQUIRED." Next, let us consider the term, "INSTINCT"; we find it 

defined as "NATURAL IMPULSE, OR UNCONSCIOUS, INVOLUNTARY, OR UNREASONING 

PROMPTING TO ANY ACTION." It will be seen, accordingly, that merely the 

most elemental and primitive activities of man are "natural" in this 

sense; and that all his acquired activities and methods are "not 

natural." 

 

The activities of man which are in the "not natural" class may be either 

desirable for the individual and the race, or else undesirable for both. 

Therefore, it will be seen, all such activities must be subjected to the 

test of reason and experience in order to determine whether they are in 

the best interests of the individual and the race, or else opposed to 

these. This is the only sane method of testing the validity and 

desirability of such things--Birth Control among the others. The claim 

of "not natural," if applied at all, must be extended to ALL things 

which are not strictly "natural" or instinctive--it is casuistical to 

apply the term in reproach to certain things and to withhold it from 

others in the same general class.
