INDEX

concluding the subject, we may summarize its chief points as follows, 

for the purpose of impressing them more fully upon the mind:-- 

 

1. If a child is begotten in lust, its lower passions will as certainly 

be abnormally developed as peas will produce peas, or potatoes produce 

potatoes. If the child does not become a rake or a prostitute, it will 

be because of uncommonly fortunate surroundings, or a miracle of divine 

grace. But even then, what terrible struggles with sin and vice, with 

foul thoughts and lewd imaginations--the product of a naturally 

abnormal mind--must such an individual suffer! If he is unsuccessful 

in the conflict, is he alone to blame? Society, his fellow-men, will 

censure him alone; but He who knoweth all the secrets of human life 

will pass a more lenient judgment on the erring one, and mete out 

punishment where it most belongs. 

 

2. The same remarks apply with equal force to the transmission of other 

qualities. If the interest of the parents is only for self, with no 

thought for the well-being of the one whose destiny is in their hands, 

they can expect naught but a selfish character, a sordid, greedy 

disposition, in the child. 

 

3. The influence of the father is, at the outset, as great as that of 

the mother. The unhappy or immoral thoughts of one alone at the critical 

moment when life is imparted, may fix for eternity a foul blot upon 

a character yet unformed. 

 

4. If during gestation the mother is fretful, complaining, and 

exacting; if she requires to be petted and waited upon; if she gratifies 

every idle whim and indulges every depraved desire and perverted 

appetite--as thousands of mothers do--the result will surely be a 

peevish, fretful child, that will develop into a morose and irritable 

man or woman, imperious, unthankful, disobedient, willful, gluttonous, 

and vicious. 

 

If such undesirable results would be avoided, the following suggestions 

should be regarded:-- 

 

1. For the beginning of a new life, select the most favorable time, 

which will be when the bodily health is at its height; when the mind 

is free from care and anxiety; when the heart is joyous, cheerful, and 

filled with hope, love, high aspirations, pure and beautiful thoughts. 

If, as one writer says, it is the duty of every human pair engaging 

in the reproductive act to bring into existence the most perfect 

specimen of the race of which they are capable, then it becomes a 

monstrous crime to enter into relations which may produce a contrary 

result. This may be a truth hard to accept, but who is prepared to 

dispute it on logical or moral grounds? 

 

2. If a child has been properly conceived, the duty then devolves upon 

the mother to secure its proper development. Is beauty desired, let 

the mother be surrounded with beautiful objects; and let her mind dwell 

upon such objects. If an active mind and brilliant intellect are 

required, the mother should devote considerable time to study and 

mental labor of a pleasant nature. The moral nature should be carefully 

cultivated, to insure a lovely disposition. No angry words or unhappy
