If I should be permitted to evaluate, in a word, the answers which have been given in these pages to the question: "Who is responsible for the child?" I should say that all of the contributors have been correct. Everyone who has reached the age of discretion and judgment is responsible for the child. No one can escape the responsibility which all the powers that be-biology, civilization, God- have placed upon him.
