_Case 2._ Mr. A. and Miss B. are in love with each other. But they 

cannot get married, for his salary is too small. They might risk 

getting married, if the specter of an indefinite number of children 

did not stretch out its restraining hand. She comes from a good 

family, she was brought up, if not in the lap of luxury, in the lap of 

comfort and coziness, and it is the ambition of every good American to 

furnish his wife at least as good a home as her father gave her. Her 

father, by the way, died prematurely from overwork in trying to give 

all possible comforts and advantages to a bevy of six unmarried and 

marriageable daughters. 

 

As I said, the fear of children kept them back. Each year the hope 

revived that in another year their union in matrimony would be 

consummated. But the years passed. Mr. A.'s hair became thin and 

grayish, Miss B began to look haggard and pinched--and still the 

marriage could not take place. Miss B was very religious and very 

proper, and would not do anything that was improper. A was not quite 

so proper; he paid occasional visits elsewhere, and as instruction in 

venereal prophylaxis was not included in his college course, he 

acquired a gonorrhea, which it took him about six months to get rid 

of. To shorten the story, A was thirty-nine and Miss B was thirty-five 

when the many times postponed marriage was consummated, but Cupid 

seemed to be busy elsewhere when the ceremony took place, and there is 

very little romance in their married life. The marriage has remained 

childless, as I told Mr. A it would be. 

 

I consider this a ruined life--and all for the lack of a little 

knowledge. 

 

If the anti-preventionists, those who are opposed to any information 

about the prevention of conception, were not so hopelessly stupid, 

they would see that from their own point of view it would be better if 

such information were legally obtainable. For it would be instrumental 

in causing more marriages which otherwise remain unconsummated, and 

by favoring early marriages, it would be instrumental in curtailing 

the demand for prostitution, in diminishing venereal disease. And as 

is well known, venereal disease is one of the great factors in race 

suicide. 

 

_Case 3._ A young woman was married to a man who besides being a 

brutal drunkard was subject to periodic fits of insanity. Every year 

or two he would be taken to the lunatic asylum for a few weeks or 

months, and then discharged. And every time on his discharge he would 

celebrate his liberty by impregnating his wife. She hated and loathed 

him, but could not protect herself against his "embraces." And she had 

to see herself giving birth to one abnormal child after another. She 

begged her doctor to give her some means of prevention, but that boob
