DENVER PRIEST SCORES BIRTH
Denver, Col., Jan. 15. Declaring
it a "crime and an abomination,"
Rev. Hugh L. McMenamin, rector of
the Cathedral of the Immaculate
Conception, yesterday, in a sermon,
bitterly denounced the popular agi
nation of the subject of birth control.
"The present agitation for birth
control," said Father McMenamin,

genic, sex hygiene and kindred
movements, which for the past few
years hate been nauseating the bet
ter part of the public. If one were
to believe these 'inspired' doctors, so
ciologists and ministers, the vast
majority of us should never have,
been born. They view man as noth

chine, a mere animal; the question
of morality or the supreme right of
God never enters their calculations.

monumental conceit that baffles
comprehension, they arrogate to
themselves the power of life and
"That poverty should be alleviated
I grant; but birth control is not the
remedy. It is the creation of a great
er, evil, for it not only robs the race
and the nation, biit it brutalizes the
individual by stultifying the natural
desire for parenthood."
