so far as is concerned the question of its being a factor toward Race
Suicide, we must pronounce a verdict of "Not Guilty" upon Birth Control.
On the contrary, the contrary course of teaching and practice, if
carried to their full logical conclusion, would inevitably bring the
race to such a stage of degeneracy, and retrogression to primitive type,
that a fate far worse than suicide would befall the human race. For the
race, as well as the individual, may commit "suicide" and an end to its
career, not only by a will-not-to-live but also by a will-to-degenerate.
The face of Birth Control is set toward the rising sun of Race
Betterment, not toward the setting sun of Racial Decline. Its ideas are
those of Race Life, not of Race Death. It bids the race not to perish,
but rather to live on in greater strength, happiness, and efficiency.
Birth Control is in full accord with the Racial Will-to-Live, and not
opposed to it. All humanity, all civilization, all human progress, call
upon us to take our stand upon this vital question of Birth Control.
And, as a writer has well said, in doing so we shall each of us be
contributing, however humbly, to that "one far-off event, to which the
whole creation moves."
