Fort Collins, Colo., Feb. 24, 1906.
To the Editor:
—For some time there have been many criminal abortions performed in our city, and the thought occurred to me that by getting the physicians and ministers together and formulating a statement as to the gravity of this crime we might do something to check it. A meeting was called and the statement I send you was formulated and signed by the persons whose names are appended.The intention was to have a lot of these printed so that each physician could have a supply and distribute them where he thought they would do the most good. While we have not yet carried out this last part of our plan, I believe our action has had an excellent effect on physicians who had been doing or might be induced to do that kind of work.E. Stuver.
