Title

Blinded by Gonorrhea

Description

If the mother has gonorrhea, her child may be blinded at birth. Simple medical treatment at time of birth will preent such blindness. Men who think themselves cured sometimes infect their wives with gonorrhea. Chronic ill-health and inability to have children are often caused by gonorrhea. Many serious operations on married women are due to this disease.
