About this Item

First published in 1919, this book is the third printing from 1922, 285 pages. "In this book is discusses the morality involved in the ordinary cases of medical homicide and mutilation. The articles may seem to be intended for Catholic physicians and spiritual directors alone, but the desire in writing them was to reach all practitioners, to the end that the Natural Law which binds every man may be observed. Morality is not made such in its fundamental principles by any religious creed, but by the requirements of Divine Order, which finally prevails no matter what the opposition. The most vital facts in morality, the basic distinction between crime and all that is virtuous or indifferent morally, is in abstract principle alone. " The subjects covered include self mutilation, abortion & miscarriage, suicide, homicide, and the ethics of birth control. Twilight sleep to avert pain in parturition is discussed and concludes that these methods are morally illicit and useless. Chapter 23 -Vasectomy, Or Sterlization By State Law, is a fascinating look at the State of Indiana law of 1907, "enacting a vasectomy law which obliges the superintendents of some prisona dna asylums to appoint two surgeons whose office is to sterilize sexually criminal, idiots, imbeciles and similar persons, if those surgeons deem the propagation of children by such so-called degenerates detrimental to society."
