Chapter 7 of Fine Line is entitled Edge of Eternity. Fine Line is the sequel to Woodcutter’s Revival by Jerry Slauter, released in 2012. Victoria has a health crisis brought on by extreme distress as she is still not over mourning her late husband and her father.

Whitney, Victoria’s aunt and surviving sister of her late mother, and Michael, Victoria’s uncle surviving her late father get into a discussion of eugenics. Michael asks Whitney about her involvement in the Women’s Movement. Whitney describes the differences between Margaret Sanger’s camp as opposed to the Susan B. Anthony groups in the following excerpt:

Michael’s face took on a more serious appearance. “Whitney, when you were campaigning for women’s rights and suffrage, were you also advocating birth control and…?”

Whitney finished the sentence, “Abortion?”

Michael continued, “Yes. Were you an advocate of abortion?”

Whitney answered, “There were two groups. There was Margaret Sanger, a eugenicist, who advocated abortion and biological and genetic engineering for the purity of the race. In her opinion abortion and birth control were means of keeping the immigrant population down, whether they were voluntary immigrants or not.”

Michael asked, “What do you mean by ‘voluntary immigrants?'”

Whitney clarified, “There were the Europeans who came here by choice. Then there were the people of color who were beaten and dragged to come here and work for others. The immigrants nobody talks about are the women who were tricked into coming here for a better life, but were actually sold into prostitution. That was known as human trafficking.

“I feel Margaret Sanger claimed she was advocating for quality of life and destiny of women over their own bodies. As you learned more about her, you got the feeling she really hated children. There was a story of her visiting a tenement where a woman wanted an abortion.

“She already had three children and said she couldn’t handle another. Her husband had thrown a baby girl out in the snow and said, ‘Leave it.’ A neighbor quickly retrieved the child and kept the baby girl until the husband sobered up and things settled down. Sanger was heard to say, ‘I would gladly throw them all out in the snow and leave them there.’”

Michael sat there and looked shocked. Finally, he asked, “What about the others?”

Whitney explained, “The others were led by Susan B. Anthony. They were in favor of equal pay for equal work, women’s suffrage, protection from abusive husbands, health care and assistance for adoption and early child care. They split with the Sanger group over the life of the child, born or unborn.”

Fine Line is due to be released in 2014. Woodcutter’s Revival is available to read now.
