Cutting from newspaper Het Volk. Louis Heijermans was not against birth control, but he disapproved of "artificial means" and only favoured periodic abstinence. NMB propaganda he considered both misleading and tasteless. More important, he fundamentally disagreed with the NMB about birth control as a remedy against social misery. Poverty had to be eliminated by social reform and better living conditions, not by limiting the number of children.
