Short Talks on the Practical Application of the Bahai Revelation - Birth Control

Aseyeh Allen Dyar and Harrison G. Dyar - Short Talks on the Practical Application of the Bahai Revelation

"What should be the attitude of advanced thought, especially religious thought, which adheres to the admonitions of the prophets, in the meantime? First, of course, to advocate and further the principles of national federation and state control of reproduction. Next, to do nothing that will make the task of those who finally have charge of the molding of the human race more, difficult. No mixing of stocks, and no diminution in the numbers of the good stocks in the meanwhile. For the future breeders may wish to preserve parts of all the races for their special qualities and special adaptations and they should have pure breeds to use. We must keep up the numbers of the good stocks, for these ideals of ours can succeed only by national support, for which the wise and educated care, but not the weak-minded and defective. Moreover, there must be a goodly supply of the best to begin selection from, or by sheer force of numbers, the barbarians will bear us under. And not until these things are fulfilled may we really treat mankind as one, as the prophets have bidden us." (Page 85)
