    EFFECTS UPON WOMEN

    “Females, although they do not lose semen, induce by this habit a discharge from the vagina which proves a terrible drain upon the system. This discharge, called ‘leucorrhea,’ or ‘whites,’ is often the beginning of the most dreadful and fatal diseases. It is the precursor of congestion, inflammation, ulceration, tumors, and cancers of the womb. It is very frequently induced by other means aside from self-abuse; for it follows in the train of all sexual abuses, and is often present as the result of inherited weaknesses. It is exceedingly debilitating, and, sad as it is, it is nevertheless true that our American women as a class are almost universally afflicted with this exhausting loss.SOAP 92.2

    “The best blood of woman, as well as man, goes to the generative organs for the purpose of forming the new being; and, if it is lost by this constant drain from a million women, who can estimate how much lower we stand in consequence of this, both as regards physical and mental conditions, than we might have done had the life-forces of our progenitors been preserved intact?”SOAP 93.1
