parents at the moment of the performance of the generative act. In view 

of this fact, how many parents can regard the precocious--or even 

mature--manifestations of sexual depravity in their children without 

painful smitings of conscience at seeing the legitimate results of 

their own sensuality? By debasing the reproductive function to an act 

of selfish animal indulgence, they imprinted upon their children an 

almost irresistible tendency to vice. Viewing the matter from this 

stand-point, what wonder that licentiousness is rife! that true 

chastity is among the rarest of virtues! 

 

Prof. O. W. Holmes remarks on this subject: "There are people who think 

that everything may be done if the doctor, be he educator or physician, 

be only called in season. No doubt; but _in season_ would often be a 

hundred or two years before the child was born, and people never send 

so early as that." "Each of us is only the footing up of a double column 

of figures that goes back to the first pair. Every unit tells, and some 

of them are _plus_ and some _minus_. If the columns don't add up right, 

it is commonly because we can't make out all of the figures." 

 

It cannot be doubted that the throngs of deaf, blind, crippled, idiotic 

unfortunates who were "born so," together with a still larger class 

of dwarfed, diseased, and constitutionally weak individuals, are the 

lamentable results of the violation of some sexual law on the part of 

their progenitors. 

 

If parents would stop a moment to consider the momentous 

responsibilities involved in the act of bringing into existence a human 

being; if they would reflect that the qualities imparted to the new 

being will affect its character to all eternity; if they would recall 

the fact that they are about to produce a mirror in which will be 

reflected their own characters divested of all the flimsy fabrics which 

deceive their fellow-men, revealing even the secret imaginings of their 

hearts,--there would surely be far less of sin, disease, and misery 

born into the world than at the preset day; but we dare not hope for 

such a reform. To effect it, would require such a revolution in the 

customs of society, such a radical reform in the habits and characters 

of individuals, as nothing short of a temporal millennium would be able 

to effect. 

 

It is quite probable that some writers have greatly exaggerated the 

possible results which may be attained by proper attention to the laws 

under consideration. All cannot be equally beautiful; every child 

cannot be a genius; the influence of six thousand years of transgression 

cannot be effaced in a single generation; but persevering, 

conscientious efforts to comply with every requirement of health, 

purity, morality, and the laws of nature, will accomplish wonders in 

securing healthy children with good dispositions, brilliant intellects, 

and beautiful bodies. 

 

This is not the proper place to describe in detail a plan to be pursued; 

but the few hints given, if rightly appreciated, may enable those 

interested in the subject to plan for themselves a proper course. In
