Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 27, No. 4. 1964.




I would like to lodge an objection against the article published in last Salient written by Dr. Geiringer. Many students besides myself are rather annoyed at the uninformative and sacreligious way in which the subject was approached by Dr. Geiringer.

Phrases such as "there has been only one reported failure", referring to abstention are not the advice we expect from a qualified doctor! I would refer Dr. Geiringer to an article published in "Truth" (and if he cannot get hold of this magazine, the contents are published also In "Zealandia", the Roman Catholic newspaper dated March 26). Where the B.M.A., the most authoritative medical association In the world, stated publicly that contraception should be avoided. Dr. Geiringer as a member of the profession, then may use a little more discretion in future.

Yours sincerely,

Tony Lenart.
