little household can better be imagined than stated. The little mother 

has aged sixteen years in those six years, and there is not a trace 

left of her girlishness and youthfulness. She loves her children, and 

does not want to get rid of them. She would not take a million 

dollars for one of them, but she would not give five cents for 

another. But this is just what terrifies them; the possibility of 

another. And that possibility makes her irritable, makes her repel her 

husband's slightest advances, makes her move his bed to another room. 

She even tells him to satisfy his sexual desires elsewhere--and at the 

same time she is in fear and trembling that he might follow her 

advice. In short, a nice young home is about to be disrupted. 

Fortunately he reads somewhere an article on the subject of voluntary 

limitation of offspring, he begins to investigate; his physician 

pleads ignorance, but he is persistent, the physician investigates and 

obtains the desired information, which he shares with the patient. 

Harmony is restored and a happy home is re-established. 

 

Who was injured by the couple obtaining this information? And if 

nobody was injured, and everybody concerned was benefited, then why 

should the imparting of such information be considered a felony, 

punishable like the most atrocious of crimes? 

 

_Case 10._ Mr. and Mrs. G have been married fifteen years. They were 

the parents of seven children, a large enough number for any family. 

Those seven children were born during the first eleven years of their 

married life. During the past five years, afraid of having any more, 

they first abstained and then adopted a method which every modern 

sexologist knows is injurious to the nervous system of both the man 

and the woman. The man became a wreck; first neurasthenic, then 

impotent, cranky and grouchy, unable to get along in the office, 

constantly squabbling with his wife, who became just as bad a wreck. 

Their economic condition plus too many small children prevented the 

parents' separation. They remained living together, but they lived 

like a cat and a dog tied in a bag. Each silently prayed to be rid of 

the other. But a conversation overheard at a Turkish baths 

establishment put him on the right trail, and one year later we find 

the couple reconciled, both in good health and living a peaceful and 

fairly harmonious life. And those who have benefited most by the 

change are the children. In what way was society injured? And still if 

the doctor who gave Mr. G the information should have been caught and 

convicted, he would have been sent to prison for a year or two or 

five. Would he have deserved it? Here we have several plain, simple, 

unvarnished and unembellished cases which are typical of millions of
