Birth Control


(part 3/4, see below)
{if you are not interested in history or medicine, skip to part 4/4}


~ BIRTH CONTROL  VOLUNTARY CONTROL OF FERTILITY
                 IN POLITICALLY CORRECT TERMS
  " FAMILY PLANNING "            sug> EUPHONIOUS
  euphemism for ANTICONCEPTIVES  sug> CONDOM
  A MODERN TERM AND CONCEPT      sug> CONCEPTION
  lit+ note former view of BIRTH CONTROL in
       [99] by MALTHUS [#] given as
  "MORAL RESTRAINT ..." which implies
  ABSTINENCE OUTSIDE FROM MARRIAGE ...
  WITH A STRICTLY MORAL CONDUCT
  TOWARDS SEX OTHERWISE
  biol> BIOLOGIC AND STATISTICAL FACTS SHOW
        HOW THE HUMAN SPECIES HAS FAILED TO
  CONTROL ITS GROWTH AND
  HAS OPPOSED TO BIRTH CONTROL
  OFFERING MYSTICAL ARGUMENTS ADVANCED BY MANY
  JUDEO CHRISTIAN AND OTHER RELIGIOUS GROUPS
  NEW LIFE EXPRESSED AS A NEW CHILD
  IS SEEN AS A DIVINE FAVOR
  note how PUBLICLY THE ROMAN CHURCH
       STATES THAT BIRTH CONTROL IS ACCEPTABLE IF
  NO ARTIFICIAL MEANS ARE USED AND IF SPERM IS
  NOT " WASTED " AS IS IMPLICIT IN THE PRACTICE
  OF "COITUS INTERRUPTUS" or
  EARLY WITHDRAWAL WHICH IMPLIES
  THAT SPERM WILL BE "WASTED"
  OUTSIDE OF THE VAGINA
  note how DE FACTO THE ROMAN CHURCH
       ONLY ACCEPTS ONE BIRTH CONTROL METHOD
  BASED ON THE GUESSING AND ABSTENTION DURING
  THE FERTILE PERIOD OF THE MENSTRUAL CYCLE
  THIS LED MANY TO DUB SUCH METHOD
  THE "VATICAN ROULETTE"
  WHY ABSTENTION SHOULD WORK FOR MARRIED COUPLES
  WHEN IT FAILS AMONG PRIESTS WHO ENGAGE IN SEX
  IS AN INDEX OF HOW IMPOSSIBLE IS SUCH EXPECTATION
  PROMOTED BY CHURCH LEADERS
  note for contrast how CHURCHES MAINTAIN
       A VIRTUAL SILENCE ON ANIMAL LIFE BEING "WASTED"
  ORDAINED PRIEST CAN "HUNT"  "GAME"  FOR "SPORT"
  WITHOUT BEING STIGMATIZED BY THEIR CHURCH or SOCIETY
  also note how RARELY RELIGIOUS ARGUMENTS ARE RAISED
       AGAINST "WASTING LIFE" BY
  POLLUTION CONTAMINATION or UNNECESSARY
  HUMAN ENCROACHMENTS ON THE HABITAT NEEDED BY
  ENDANGERED SPECIES WHICH FUTURE HUMAN AND
  NON HUMAN GENERATIONS MAY NEVER KNOW
  THE VATICAN PROJECTS ITS POLITICAL INFLUENCE
  TO OPPOSE HUMAN BIRTH CONTROL
  PARTICULARLY IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES
  WHERE THE POPULATION GROWTH IS EXPLOSIVE
  hx> SOME POSTULATE THAT A COMPACT
      WAS FORGED BETWEEN PRESIDENT REAGAN AND
  THE VATICAN TO EXCHANGE THE SUPPORT BY THE CHURCH
  NEEDED TO ENFEEBLE THE USSR FOR THE WITHDRAWAL OF
  USA SUPPORT FOR INTERNATIONAL BIRTH CONTROL PROGRAMS
  note BIRTH CONTROL DEVICES SUCH AS VAGINAL SPONGES AND
       OTHER VAGINAL DEVICES WERE WELL KNOWN IN
  ANCIENT EGYPT THOUSAND OF YEARS BEFORE CHRIST
  MODERN POST VICTORIAN HISTORY OF BIRTH CONTROL
  IS LINKED TO Charles KNOWLTON [#] [8]
  note Henry COOK [#] and Francis PLACE [#]
  in 1874 Annie BESANT [#] joined with BRADLAUGH [#]
  HER CAUSE STARTED WITH THE GUILTY PLEA
  OF THE PUBLISHER OF A WORK BY KNOWLTON   see> below
  BESANT STARTED THE "FREE THOUGHT PUBLISHING COMPANY"
  JUST TO PUBLISH THE BANNED KNOWLTON BOOK WHICH
  REAPPEARED IN 1877  AS " THE FRUITS OF PHILOSOPHY" 
  BESANT HAD THE GOAL TO BE TAKEN TO COURT
  WHEN SHE STOOD TRIAL SHE CAUSED A SENSATION
  AND HER COGENT ARGUMENTS WERE WIDELY REPORTED
  BY NEWSPAPERS
  BESANT MADE THE PROSECUTION LOOK RIDICULOUS
  IT WAS A TRIAL IN THE ENGLISH PRESS AND
  BRADLAUGH AND BESANT FINALLY WON
  THE TRIAL WAS A LANDMARK AND
  THE BOOK HAD AN ENORMOUS SALE
  THE EFFECTS OF THE GREAT DEPRESSION OF 1874
  MADE AN UNWANTED CHILD A HEAVY BURDEN WHICH
  LED TO A DECREASED BRITISH BIRTH RATE 
  CONCURRENTLY IT BECAME EASIER TO ADOPT
  CHILD LABOR LAWS
  THE NEW LAW DECREED THAT
  CHILDREN BELOW AGE 8 YEARS COULD NOT BE EMPLOYED
  THE EDUCATION ACTS OF 1870 1876 AND 1880 RAISED
  THE AGE FOR LEAVING SCHOOL
  SOON HAVING A LARGE FAMILY BECAME A HANDICAP
  SOON ENGLAND ACQUIRED A FANATICAL FAITH
  IN SCIENCE AND SCIENCE ALONE
  THIS LED TO IDEAS OF APPLYING SCIENCE TO SOCIETY
  eg SCIENTIFIC MATERIALISM = MARX  COMMUNISTS  USSR
     SOCIAL DARWINISM                    sug> UTILITARIAN
  PROHIBITION OF ALCOHOL etc             sug> BENTHAM
  IN 1877-1927 THE MALTHUSIAN LEAGUE HAD THE OBJECTIVE TO
  SPREAD KNOWLEDGE OF THE LAWS OF POPULATION
  THE JOURNAL "THE MALTHUSIAN" CIRCULATED 
  BETWEEN 1879 AND 1949
  IN 1942 THE JOURNAL WAS NAMED "THE NEW GENERATION"
  AND SEEKS TO ENCOURAGE A REDUCTION OF THE
  ENGLISH BIRTH RATE
  THE AVERAGE ANNUAL CRUDE ENGLISH BIRTH RATE in
  1871-1875 WAS 35.5 X 1000
  1931-1935     15.0 X 1000  note how in INDIA it is
  1980          35   X 1000
  2020          BY THIS DATE INDIA WILL LEAD THE WORLD
                AND POPULATE OTHER COUNTRIES
  BIRTH CONTROL HAS BEEN THUS FAR A SPECTACULAR FAILURE
