A cervical cap of the type which dispensed from Dr. Marie Stopes free birth control clinic. Following Dr. Halliday Sutherland’s criticism of the clinic in his book “Birth Control,” he received a writ for libel from Stopes in 1923. An acrimonious legal battle followed, ended with Sutherland’s victory in the House of Lords in 1924. “Prorace” was Stopes’ own brand and was related to her belief in eugenics, the theory that selective breeding could remove “undesirables” and the “unfit” from society. Stopes’ birth control campaign was part of her eugenic agenda through the Society for Constructive Birth Control and Racial Progress.
