SIR,Of course I agree with " Luxurious Woman " that the clown of motherhood is not seldom a crown of thorns. I else) agree that there is in motherhood much which frightens and repels the male mind. and this is because he is a male and because he secretes no hormones which cause him to love dolls, to delight in washing babies and to make him yearn over a howling infant!
" Luxurious Woman " forgets that all down the ages women have had to fight and overcome far greater difficulties than they'meet with to-day and the high birth-rate among women of the poorest classes in England and in all povertystricken lands-like the Balkans-where women are in constant battle with hunger and toil and destitution, proves that where the sex urge is normally present, no economical power, nor even the fear of loneliness and sorrow and death, can prevent a woman from becoming a mother.
ft has been my privilege to help hundreds of women in their „hour of need and to wonder with a reverent awe, almost amounting to adoration, the spectacle of Ff loving woman's triumph in what appeared to a male man to be even as a martyrdom!
