"The gravest responsibility in life is to bring a child into the world." 1


"This poor child is motherless, and there's not one thing worse in this world than being motherless." 2


"The woman's natural instinct to keep and care for her young is not strong enough to stand against society's condemnation and punishment for bearing a child out of wedlock, a child called ‘illegitimate.' The father of such a child assumes no responsibility and our society makes no demands upon him. It is the child who bears alone the total burden of his illegitimate birth. His best hope is adoption." 3
