"This Mother is Dying Because She Wasn't Well Enough to Have Her Last Baby

Perhaps she was already exhausted from too frequent or complicated pregnancies. Perhaps she had developed tuberculosis, anemia, heart or kidney diseses which made it dangerous for her to have more children, yet, as in so many cases, no advice was given.

Though all she asked was to be able to care for her living children and hold her home together, her life is forfeited. Planned Parenthood measures, under medical direction, can reduce our high maternal and infant death rates, ensure better health for the mother and child, and bring better living conditions for the family.

Planned Parenthood can also reduce the number of transmissable and hereditary diseases in the next generation.
