Reading Experience:

Evidence:
'I have two children, 2? years and 1 year old. Though in some respects I would not object to increasing my family, quite frankly I do not feel that my nerves will stand the pain of another childbirth for a good long while. ....I read in a "Readers Digest" some months past of a painless childbirth, which had been successfully introduced in America. An injection into the spine, I believe. Why cannot something of the kind be brought to this country and within the scope of all mothers.'
