"Every where there was an eagerness to hear about birth control. All the dubious and dismal prognostications as to religious objections of Hindus and Mohammmedans have proven false in my experience. As in other countries the opposition came from the Roman Catholics and in India this weak opposition was expressed by foreign born priests and a few Eurasians."
The masses in India as in other countries desire means to limit the size of the family. The problem there as elsewhere is how to supply the demand and direct the practical application of birth control into the classes where it is most urgently needed."
Notes John Megaw's suggestion that "contrary to the usual belief, educated Indians were willing and even eager to consider any means of dealing with the evil of over-population; the chief prejudice was encountered among Europeans who wrongly imagined that Indians were antagonistic to any suggestion to reform their ancient customs."
