introduction of contraceptives; we are still suffering all sorts of 

serious evils in consequence of Nature's action in placing our remote 

ancestors in the erect position. Yet we feel that it was worth while; 

even those physicians who most emphasize the evil results of the erect 

position do not advise that we should go on all-fours. It is just the 

same with a great human device, the introduction of clothes. They have 

led to all sorts of new susceptibilities to disease and even tendencies 

to direct injury of many kinds. Yet no one advocates the complete disuse 

of all clothing on the ground that corsets have sometimes proved 

harmful. It would be just as absurd to advocate the complete abandonment 

of contraceptives on the ground that some of them have been misused. If 

it were not, indeed, that we are familiar with the lengths to which 

ignorance and prejudice may go we should question the sanity of anyone 

who put forward so foolish a proposition. Every great step which Nature 

and man have taken in the path of progress has been beset by dangers 

which are gladly risked because of the advantages involved. We must 

never loose sight of the immense advantages which Man has gained in 

acquiring a conscious and deliberate control of reproduction." 

 

THE END. 

 

 

 

 

Transcriber's Note: 

 

 

Numerous minor typographical errors have been corrected without note. 

Variations in spelling (e.g. fetus/foetus), capitalization, and 

hyphenation have not been standardized. Where a misspelling was used five 

or more times (e.g. umbillical), no correction has been made. No attempt 

has been made to correct factual errors or poorly constructed sentences.
