Excerpt from Southern Medical and Surgical Journal, 1854, Vol. 10
Modesty is universally admired as the brightest gem in the beauteous diadem of female loveliness. And while we deplore the sad consequences of the morbid sensitiveness of females, in concealing those sexual secrets, which pertain to their nature, at the expense of health, and even life itself, we can but admire while we condemn and deplore; and we would fain devise some means which would secure the virtuous of the sex in the pos session of those sacred treasures, without the payment of such a dreadful penalty. This can be accomplished only by qualify ing females to administer to the necessities of their own sex, by bestowing upon them a proper medical education: this plan, and this only, will secure females from exposure, on the one hand, and the malpractice of ignorant midwives on the other.
