    Calls for 'a great crusade against the crass apathy which is shown by men and women to the rights of the unborn generation', and recounts how a mother who 'became engrossed in Herbert Spencer's writings' during pregnancy produced a 'child [who] reflects the mother's mental condition in a most striking manner' and is 'one of the finest reasoners I have known among children'.
