stand unrepealed on the statute books, they must be observed by all law 

abiding citizens. 

 

Dr. Wm. J. Robinson, an authority on the subject, says: "We believe 

that under any conditions, and particularly under our present economic 

conditions, human beings should be able to control the number of their 

offspring. They should be able to decide how many children they want to 

have, and when they want to have them. And to accomplish this result we 

demand that the knowledge of controlling the number of offspring, in 

other and plainer words, the knowledge of preventing undesirable 

conception, should not be considered a criminal offence punishable by 

hard labor in Federal prisons, but that it should be considered 

knowledge useful and necessary to the welfare of the race and of the 

individual; and that its dissemination should be as permissible as is 

the dissemination of any hygienic, sanitary or eugenic knowledge." 

 

THE ONLY POSSIBLE RELIEF FROM THE PRESENT CONDITION IS SEEN BY CAREFUL 

THINKERS TO BE IN THE EDUCATION OF THE PUBLIC AS TO THE NEEDS OF THE 

CASE, AND THE PRESENTATION OF THE SCIENTIFIC ARGUMENT IN FAVOR OF 

RATIONAL AND PROPER BIRTH CONTROL, TO THE END THAT PUBLIC OPINION, ONCE 

SEEING THE TRUTH IN THE CASE, MAY BE SUFFICIENTLY STRONG AS TO BRING 

ABOUT A CHANGE IN THE PRESENT ANTIQUATED AND BIGOTED LAWS. BUT, SO LONG 

AS THE LAWS REMAIN ON THE STATUTE BOOKS, THEY MUST BE OBSERVED AND 

OBEYED. EDUCATION, NOT ANARCHY, IS THE TRUE REMEDY. 

 

The following general remarks on the subject of Contraception, by 

Havelock Ellis, the well-known English authority of the subject of Sex 

in Modern Society, may perhaps prove interesting to students of the 

general subject: Ellis says: "Many ways of preventing conception have 

been devised since the method which is still the commonest was first 

introduced, so far as our certainly imperfect knowledge extends, by a 

clever Jew, Onan (Genesis, Chap. XXXVIII) whose name has since been 

wrongly attached to another practice with which the Mosaic record in no 

way associates him. There are now many contraceptive methods, some 

dependent on precautions adopted by the man, others dependent upon the 

woman, others again which take the form of an operation permanently 

preventing conception, and, therefore, not to be adopted save by couples 

who already have as many children as they desire, or else who ought 

never to have children at all and thus wisely adopt a method of 

sterilization. It is unnecessary here, even if it were otherwise 

desirable, to discuss these various methods in detail. It is even
