"I should like to see one or more similar birth control clinics started in this country (financed by private effort) as an experiment. It is possible that before long some public-spirited philanthropist will come forward in this way."-DR. C. KILLICK MILLARD, Medical Officer of Health for Leicester (National News, April 6th).
POPULATION AND POVERTY
'Underlying all superficial causes of international conflict and national unrest is the problem of population. As long as the human race continues to increase at the present rate, it is certain that the different tribes of mankind will at frequent intervals wage destructive wars against one another; that is the only way by which they can secure for themselves what they consider an adequate share of the limited resources of the globe. Further, it is certain that, so long as individual parents produce more children than they can maintain in comfort, a considerable section of the population will be overcrowded and underfed. Attempts may be made to deal with these evils by such devices as Charity Rents and Mother's Pensions, but they will only have the effect of encouraging the production of those types who lean upon the State, and discouraging the production of those who support the State.
"The real danger is that the higher racial or national types may be swamped by the lower types, and the only way of avoiding that danger is by popularizing throughout the world the knowledge of how to prevent conception. Were this done, within a few years the whole standard of human life would be immensely raised."-MR. HAROLD COX (Sunday Times, April 13th).
THE ROOT OF REVOLUTION
"The secret revolt and bitterness which permeates every fibre of the unwillingly pregnant and suffering mothers has been finding expression in the lives and deeds of their children. We have been breeding revolutionaries through the ages, and at an increasing rate, since the crowding into cities began and women were forced to bear children beyond their desires in increasingly unnatural conditions."-DR. MARIE C. STOPES (Sunday Chronicle, April 20th)
