INDEX

there must be some mistake, that the lady could not be pregnant, and 

refused to perform any further operations. Partially from doubt and 

partially from fear, nothing further was attempted; and in due process 

of time the woman was delivered of an infant, shockingly mutilated, 

with one eye entirely put out, and the brain so injured that this 

otherwise robust child was entirely wanting in ordinary sense. This 

poor mother, it would seem, needs no future punishment for her sin. 

Ten years face to face with this poor idiot, whose imbecility was her 

direct work--has it not punished her sufficiently?" 

 

The Remedy.--Whether this gigantic evil can ever be eradicated, is 

exceedingly doubtful. To effect its cure would be to make refined 

Christians out of brutal sensualists; to emancipate woman from the 

enticing, alluring slavery of fashion; to uproot false ideas of life 

and its duties,--in short, to revolutionize society. The crime is 

perpetrated in secret. Many times no one but the criminal herself is 

cognizant of the evil deed. Only occasionally do cases come near enough 

to the surface to be dimly discernible; hence the evident inefficiency 

of any civil legislation. But the evil is a desperate one, and is 

increasing; shall no attempt be made to check the tide of crime and 

save the sufferers from both physical and spiritual perdition? An 

effort should be made, at least. Let every Christian raise the note 

of warning. From every Christian pulpit let the truth be spoken in terms 

too plain for misapprehension. Let those who are known to be guilty 

of this most revolting crime be looked upon as murderers, as they are; 

and let their real moral status be distinctly shown. 

 

All of these means will do something to effect a reform; but the radical 

cure of the evil will only be found in the principles suggested in the 

section devoted to the consideration of "Marital Excesses." The 

adoption of those principles and strict adherence to them would 

effectually prevent the occurrence of circumstances which are the 

occasion of abortions and infanticides. 

 

Murder by Proxy.--"There is, at the present time, a kind of infanticide, 

which, although it is not so well known, is even more dangerous, because 

done with impunity. There are parents who recoil with horror at the 

idea of destroying their offspring, although they would greatly desire 

to be disembarrassed of them, who yet place them without remorse with 

nurses who enjoy the sinister reputation of never returning the 

children to those who have intrusted them to their care. These 

unfortunate little beings are condemned to perish from inanition and 

bad treatment. 

 

"The number of these innocent victims is greater than would be imagined, 

and very certainly exceeds that of the marked infanticides sent by the 

public prosecutor to the Court of the Assizes."
