because so many of the rejoicing guests have sinned in precisely the 

same way. The other man has no festival gathering.... Society applauds 

the first and frowns on the second; but, to my mind, the difference 

between them is not markedly in favor of the former." 

 

"We hear a good deal said about certain crimes against nature, such 

as pederasty and sodomy, and they meet with the indignant condemnation 

of all right-minded persons. The statutes are especially severe on 

offenders of this class, the penalty being imprisonment between one 

and ten years, whereas fornication is punished by imprisonment for not 

more than sixty days and a fine of less than one hundred dollars. But 

the query very pertinently arises just here as to whether the use of 

the condom and defertilizing injections is not equally a crime against 

nature, and quite as worthy of our detestation and contempt. And, 

further, when we consider the brute creation, and see that they, guided 

by instinct, copulate only when the female is in proper physiological 

condition and yields a willing consent, it may be suggested that 

congress between men and women may, in certain circumstances, be a crime 

against nature, and one far worse in its results than any other. Is 

it probable that a child born of a connection to which the woman objects 

will possess that felicitous organization which every parent should 

earnestly desire and endeavor to bestow on his offspring? Can the 

unwelcome fruit of a rape be considered, what every child has a right 

to be, a pledge of affection? Poor little Pip, in 'Great Expectations,' 

spoke as the representative of a numerous class when he said, 'I was 

always treated as if I had insisted on being born, in opposition to 

the dictates of reason, religion and morality, and against the 

dissuading arguments of my best friends.' We enjoin the young to honor 

father and mother, never thinking how undeserving of respect are those 

whose children suffer from inherited ills, the result of the 

selfishness and carelessness of their parents in begetting them. 

 

"These accidental pregnancies are the great immediate cause of the 

enormously common crime of abortion, concerning which the morals of 

the people are amazingly blunted. The extent of the practice may be 

roughly estimated by the number of standing advertisements in the 

family newspapers, in which feticide is warranted safe and secret. It 

is not the poor only who take advantage of such nefarious opportunities; 

but the rich shamelessly patronize these professional and cowardly 

murderers of defenseless infancy. Madame Restell, who recently died 

by her own hand in New York, left a fortune of a million dollars, which 

she had accumulated by producing abortions." 

 

A husband who has not sunk in his carnality too far below the brute 

creation will certainly pause a moment, in the face of such terrible 

facts, before he continues his sensual, selfish, murderous course.

professional experience has several times confirmed, reveal a still
