NOT MORE BABIES, BUT
BETTER CHILDREN
tThis Is Slogan of Meeting Called Sunday to Discuss
Family Limitation Speakers Will Cry for the
Right of Women to Regulate Birth -
r A woman will take the platform of
the Assembly Hall of the Fine Arts
building Sunday night and make a
talk never before made to a public
audience in Chicago
She will tell the audience exactly
what a first-class doctor tells a mil
lionaire's wife who conies into his
office crying: "Doctor, I don't want
to have a baby. Help me not to have
a baby."
The woman to make this talk is
Emma Goldman, anarchist, She
stated to a Day Book reporter today
that she will tell her audience the last
word of modern medical science on
birth, control. She will describe the
physical technique by which it is
claimed a woman has "power to say
for herself just how few or how many
babies shall arrive to her.
The federal government is now
prosecuting Margaret Sanger, editor
of the Woman -Rebel, for printing and
distributing the same information
which Miss Goldman is to give from
the platform Sunday night The
taction against Mrs. Sanger was start
ed by Anthony Comstock, an old
enemy of Miss Goldman.
"I believe every truth that science
has discovered should be made known
to every woman who wants that
truth," said Miss Goldman, sitting in
a leather rocker in the Little Review
office in the Pine Arts BIdg.
"The rich manjs wife has money to
go to a physician and pay a fee for
learning how to take care of herself.
She gets inadvance the information
that protects her against what she
doesn't want to happen.
"But how about the wife of the
wprkingman living in poverty?, Or
jjMi!
